The spooky Halloween season is coming up in my corner of the woods, so it's time for a poll on Undead! The (Shambling) Undead team are unique in that they can field Zombie and Skeleton lineman alike. Do you go with one or the other or both?

Oh, and last month we learned that a lot of people (58) don't like that "Illegal Procedure" rule!

I go with 2 Zombies and 1 Skeleton. The Zombies are great on the LOS with their AV8 and the Skeleton's MA5 is good to get a cheeky foul in more often :)

I always take at least 2 of each. Zombies are better for the line but not much else. Skeletons higher move makes them more useful for covering gaps, lending assists, protecting a rolling cage, etc. Also, sometimes the Thick Skull comes in useful (e.g. against claw players).

Besides, with a bit of luck you can make more Zombies out of your opponents team. :orc:

With a team in a proper groove (13 players imo) I run 3 zeds and 2 skellies (as linebackers)....

Same as some of the above. All zombies bar 1 skeleton with dp. He sits in the centre and gives nice synergy to the set up.

I like all zombies to start with but also quite like adding a skellie a later.

His extra MA is nice for 2 or 3 turn touchdown attempts that come up from time to time. As others have said he makes a good fouler too.

Yeah, I'd go with zombies only until the team had developed a bit then sneak a skeleton in to do the fouling.

Nothing new to add from me; Skeleton for Fouling and Zombies for the line.

Always Zombies. Mainly because I cant tell the difference between my minis (i suspect some of them are actually Rotters) so i inform the opponent they are all Zombies :D

I'm another one who takes 1 Skeleton w/ Dirty Player and the rest Zombies. I probably picked that up from reading posts around here.

I also made an 'all-zombie' team on Fumbbl, except 1 skeleton. He should have been a runner, but ended up being used primarily as a Thrower. I think because one of the Zombies got +1MA early on.
