Got the dlc today, and was excited to try them out, but is it just me or do they have nothing going for them? You can build 2 cities, then you're screwed unless you manage to sneak-grab enemy cities since even if you find a fair amount of human monster npcs, you wont be getting enough growth for another pioneer. If you're lucky you find 2+ deathshards within grabbable range of the two cities, which makes it slightly bearable if you can stock enough mana to get the growth buffs on the cities.
Even worse, the skeleton warriors have alot of debuffs but nothing good going for them, even against an inferior enemy army they just drop left and right. The only game in which I managed to be any kind of successful with them, I tried to lvl up the sovereign and a hero caster as quickly as possible in summoning, and then using -only- summons for my army every time I tried massing skellie armies, it was like beating my head against a wall every time
Do anyone have any tips for playing the race, are they any kind of half decent at all?
