Default battle report: skeletons vs. Dirz

(Man, that was a pain having to re-register. Anyway, I'm back!)

I posted a short battle report of a recent HotT game on my blog. Here's a sample:

Nice report, it really did come down to a single dice roll didn't it?

It's great to see those old GW undead again. Any chance of some pictures of the army outside of a battle report?

The skeleton "spearmen" look like the old Citadel/Games Workshop "Nightmare Legion" figures.
I've just won a few on ebay, hoping to build an Undead/skeleton Roman force. I've already checked out the net for various shields to add to the figures. With any luck I should be able to pick the shields up at Triples.
Now, will my hand be steady enough to trim the blade of the guisarme down to make a passable pila?

elliesdad, that's exactly what those spearmen are: the old Nightmare Legion.

HC, I had pictures in this thread, but they're gone now, so here you go:

My spear elements (the old Nightmare Legion):


Shooters (metal Citadel and Marauder figs):


The lurker (well worth his PIPs):


Artillery (skull chucker catapult):

And now (thanks to that four-image-per-post limit), the magician general (the necromancer):


Oh yeah, and the stronghold, made from a Halloween decoration from Wal-Mart (with another Citadel mini for scale):
