Greetings, HeroClix Fans!
While you’re hunting for the WizKids HeroClix: Undead monsters, don’t forget to look for Skeletons in the closet!

One Skeleton may not seem too threatening but beware when up against an entire Skeleton Army!
These warriors are a bony bargain at 25 points and are much scarier in groups. Their trait, Skeleton Army adds +1 to the damage value of adjacent characters with the Skeleton Army keyword. While not especially fast with an opening Speed value of 6, the Skeleton does possess Charge at the top of his dial for a lean leap into battle.
Defensively, this Skeleton shows Combat Reflexes initially to make it harder for your opponent to connect through their shredded armor with close attacks. Even after taking two or three clicks they can be annoyingly hard to be put down as Super Senses is featured.
With a steady damage value of 2 that easily becomes a 3 with the Skeleton Army trait, these decaying duelists are made to band together for optimal offense.
These skull-faced menaces are even more fearsome when bolstered by a Skeleton Champion!

The Skeleton Champion is a pumped up version of the lowly Skeleton for your Skeleton Army themed teams.
While possessing the same Skeleton Army trait for the +1 damage bonus to adjacent friendly Skeleton Army characters, the Skeleton Champion provides an additional boost to your team through Leadership. The possibility of an extra action for the turn and the occasional ability to remove a token from an adjacent character of a lower point value will be very useful when fielding multiple members of this skeletal horde.
The Skeleton Champion possesses the same Charge on top click for the initial attack frenzy but also shows why he is a more deadly adversary with Blades/Claws/Fangs courtesy of his rusted sword.
The champ also goes to the top of the bone pile by being more durable, possessing Invulnerability for two clicks with his intact armor and then Combat Reflexes to keep his defense up while slaying opponents in close combat.
