    Skeletons with halberds

    Hi all.

    I've managed to borrow a VC army off a friend who isn't using it. I've been going through the minis sorting into units and came across 16 armoured skeletons with halberds.

    They're in the GW miniature range but, since Skeletons can't be equipped with halberds, I'm unsure what to make of them. Options I suppose are to play them as spears or treat them as Graveguard in friendlies.

    Any thoughts?

    IF he has some skellies with handweapons and shields, put those in the front rank and the halberds in rear ranks. Then let your opponent know that the unit has hws/shlds.

    Or do as you said and use them as spears. Just let your opponent know what you're doing.

    Nah, the old skellies were all metal, with some armor, and had halberds. Scroll down to core units here.

    You can also find the old GG there, but don't expect to be impressed with the models. The new ones are much better, though I'm ready for an update there, too.

    i suppose ya could use em as gg though as gg are armoured skelies with halberds and the models are armoured skelies with halberds there should be no problem in using them as gg even in tourney's

    I really like the armoured skeleton models, and I always use them as alternate Grave Guard models, which I think look a little dated. Obviously, I let my opponent know beforehand, avoiding any messy confrontations.
