Undead Skeleton Troop sprue contents

  • 2x 5 Skeleton Warrior legs, with holes for pegs
  • 1x 6 Skeleton Warrior torso holding a hand weapon and shield (1x sword, 1x hammer, 1x axe, 3x open hand), with pegs
  • 1x 1 Skeleton Warrior torso with open hands, without pegs
  • 1x 4 Skeleton Warrior torso with shield, without head, without pegs
  • 1x 5 Skeleton Warrior head
  • 1x 3 Skeleton Warrior arm (1x mace, 1x sicle, 1x open hand)
  • 2x 4 Skeleton Warrior sword
  • 1x 7 Skeleton Warrior spear
  • 1x 1 Skeleton Warrior broken spear
  • 1x 1 Skeleton Warrior dog
  • 1x 1 Skeleton Warrior gravestone
  • 1x 1 Skeleton Warrior dwarf head trophy
  • 1x 2 Skeleton Warrior grave ground
  • 1x 1 Skeleton Warrior rotting arm

From one Skeleton Warrior sprue you can assemble:

  • 5 Skeleton Warrior with hand weapons, easily built with tight-fit pegs
  • 10 Skeleton Warrior with hand weapons, 5 with tight-fit pegs, 5 needs glue
  • 8 Skeleton Warrior with spear and shield, although 1 spear will be shorter, and you'll need to cut the weapons from the hands
  • 9 Skeleton Warrior with sword and shield, you'll need to cut some weapons from the hands

Probably one more sword and 2 more spears would have been a nice addition. I don't really understand the 5 pegless torsos, but some glue solves the problem.
