the skellies can't be that dumb if, for instance the black armor wearing one, can be a finalist in the lists at a tourney.
anyway nice debate so far
I logged-in just to ofer my support and reasons in favour of the Suprime-Skeleton-Victory!
Honestly, it's not just a fantacy thing, where the Undead are kewl and stuff...
...but realistically, having solid massed infantry, that causes fear and has unlimited endurance.
TWO mighty dragons, I believe these massive Dragons are superior in strength and fighting skill to their baby cousins from Castle's past sets.
A fully-armed, mounted Skeleton Knight on a barded warhorse.
(_huge indicator of intelligence... putting steel over bone displays high reasoning skills which suggests he has a mind that can lead his troops and use tactics_)
Some of the Skeletons are shown using Bows & arrows... Bad guys having missle troops is a big advantage.
And finally, MAGIK...
Don't fall into the trap of thinking the newest faction is the best.
Orks would fail... and don't forget, skeletons are brainless... but Orks are mindless...
