  • 1x 2 Skeleton Warrior Command torso with shield, without right arm, without head, without pegs - almost the same as the ones on the Undead Skeleton Troop sprue, with a bit more damage on the shields
  • 1x 2 Skeleton Warrior Command torso with open handed arms, without head, without pegs

  • 1x 1 Skeleton Warrior Command horn

From one Undead Skeleton Command sprue you can assemble 10 miniatures in a variety of ways:

Human-sized (S3) skeletal humanoid warrior in armour, with one-handed melee weapon and shield

  • 5x Skeleton Warrior with one-handed melee weapon and shield - Easily built with tight-fit pegs + 5 models you need to glue
  • 10x Skeleton Warrior with one-handed melee weapon and shield - 5 with tight-fit pegs, 5 needs glue
  • 10x Skeleton Warrior with sword and shield - You'll need to cut some weapons from the hands. You'll still have one sword left.

Human-sized (S3) skeletal humanoid warrior in heavy armour, with a one-handed melee weapon in each hand

2x Skeleton Warrior with two one-handed melee weapons and no shield + 8 others

Human-sized (S3) skeletal humanoid warrior in armour, with spear and shield

  • 8x Skeleton Warrior with spear and shield - However 1 spear will be shorter, and you'll need to cut the one-handed melee weapons from the hands + 2 others

Human-sized (S3) skeletal humanoid warrior in armour, with army standard

  • 1x Skeleton Warrior standard bearer + 9 others

Human-sized (S3) skeletal humanoid warrior in armour, with horn

  • 1x Skeleton Warrior musician with horn - Not the best choice of instrument for someone without lungs. + 9 others

I think, a percussion or even a string instrument would fit the skeletons better as a musician.
