They are some nice looking skeletons, I like the blue - its a bit different and brighter than you see on the dead, but it looks quite good. Nice work, just make sure you finish the champion's shield.
Looks cool, what colour did you use for the skeleton shields and banner?

Pretty good models there - I like the blue, and I like that way you paint bone as well.
The black knights look excellent, I don't normally like the bony horses but you've made them look quite good!
Nice work, and thanks for the pictures!
I like it. The blue/turquoise is unusual, and I like that your corpse cart doesn't look like its been dipped in red paint.
I just paint 'em, I don't actually know how to play.
They look pretty good, Although some models could use some improvements, Mainly the black knights, they don't really scream black knights to me, just skeletons on horses. In the book there decked out in heavy armour, although yours seem to be lacking it, so I'd advice adding in some armour, you could us the grave guard box set and use there torso to add to the knights.
Also I think you should use something else besides flock to base your models, I recommend GW sand, then paint it up, and maybe add some flock or static grass to that. Just being picky, but will improve the look of the model by far.
Overall they look very good, you seam to have a nice simple painting technique that works well, keep up the good work.
thanks guys for comments. believe it or not i do put a lot of time and effort into my models and the positive comments make me feel like it has payed off.
Though i might have to ask about the comment above as to what models other than the BK should be worked on and how? Granted basic basing isnt the greatest, it still is better than leaving them blank and my armies are for playing and not winning basing competitions hehe. not taking offense to it in anyway, just curiouse. And to my defense i do intend to actually buy some BK models, these were bought to fill out the bulk of my unit so that way i can buy maybe only 2 VC BK and mix them in with this unit. A lot cheaper that way hehe. Anyways, enough bable, ive only had the available cash to buy a unit of BS and my new General, the BS are done (ish) and the new General will be worked on shortly.
Question though, as you know i have a blue theme to my army. I already have two vampires, both have the blue to tie them in with the rest of the army. But seeing as the new Vampire i bought (Vlad) would be the big boss for my army i thought he could get away with wearing whatever the hell he wanted. Ive thought about everything from, beat up red armor with gold trims/accents, beat up blue armor with gold trims/accents, beat up gold armor with blue trims/accents. But cant seem to make up my mind. any ideas or thoughts?
Well, regarding your Vlad model... I'm not sure I'd deviate too much from the blue, although for me that's a personal choice.
The way I see is it that the lord decrees what the nature of the army. If he wears green, the army wears green. If his coat of arms involves a bear or a bat or what have you, that motif appears on all the army banners.
However, that's not to say you can't deviate from your scheme a little to make your lord stand out from the crowd. Why wouldn't he have the best armour and the finest of robes?
That's only my take on the matter, though, so feel free to disregard it if it doesn't fit with what you want. Your army, after all!
