More work on the Skeletons

So ive managed to get more work done on the skeletons.  I think this scheme should do nicely.  Now I just need to figure out a shield symbol.  Any ideas and comments much appreciated.

The friendly Chaps on the Kings of War fanitics Facebook page suggested that I try out something simple like a tower from a chess set. whatever i choose it has too be easy to reproduce a hundred times.

what do you guys think of the red/white scheme? Is an imperial looking undead army scary looking or just silly?
I think each unit with have a different pattern on the shield using the same colours, So halved, Quartered etc. Im hoping this will separate the units but keep them unified at the same time.

The final part of the plan is to tone everything down and dirty them up with weathering powders to make them took like they just dragged themselves out of the ground.

I'm aiming to have the first 15-20 figs done by the end of Friday evening. (We will see if this happens.)

They look really good. I may have to start my 2nd KoW army. I am thinking Goblins as I have a bunch of stuff in my hidden horde. I think these are fine without a symbol and you could use them as they are. Just Red and White.

Cheers mate. I do like them as they are but do think a shield symbol will improve the look. If i could freehand it id do a imperial griffon or an eagle. (Too hard to do over and over unless ' make a stencil.

Maybe some decals form somewhere?
