I can't see the last four pics you're posted. Have you change anything with your upload?

Good to be green

That did the trick! Some of the skeletons looks a bit white, maybe the light/flash or they need a second wash. I would recomend a wash on the blue aswell.

Yea i think its the lighting that make them look lighter, if anything when i look at the miniature i feel the white isn't enough.

Which wash would you suggest on the shields?

It could be the photo, but they look like they could do with a wash and some highlighting. The blue looks very flat, and all that bone could use some depth. I know this sounds like a scratched record considering my post regarding your necromancer, but really, washes are so simple and effective to do. If you're going to do masses of flat colours like the blue and bone, washes and highlights will help make them pop.

A spot colour might also help. Pick something like the skulls on the shields and banner and maybe do them as jewel-like, maybe emerald or ruby. That one small touch of colour can make all the difference.

Yea i realised i forgot to dry brush the blue, i have done it now, looks much better. Il post a new photo in a minute.
For the skeletons i base coat Zandri Dust, then wash Seraphin Sepia and then dry brush Praxeti white.
Im not sure i like the idea of really putting colour in there, dosnt seem very undeady.
I am putting much more colour on the Champion though.

Here is one after i dry brushed the blue on the shield and the banner. I also tried to make the photo better with white background and more light, hopefully it comes across better.
