I was reading through an old copy from the year 2000 of White Dwarf (issue 243) and it featured the all new (at the time) WARMASTER epic scale (10mm) fantasy battle game... designed by Rick Priestly. The game is still highly regarded, but unfortunately no longer supported by Games Workshop. The original models can go for very high prices on ebay.... however the rules are available for free online... there is a growing active international Warmaster community, and there are a good handful of miniature companies that offer alternative 10 and 12mm fantasy miniatures at reasonable prices.
My interest peaked, I was lucky to get an original unpainted lot of Warmaster undead miniatures from ebay at a reasonable price. Not enough to make a full army, but with a bit of research I found that KALISTRA do a nice range of 12mm undead, so I bulked out the army with miniatures from them, and they also do the 20x40mm plastic bases which didn't come with my ebay win.

KALISTRA - 12mm Fantasy miniatures
Here is the finished army, It's taken me about a year to get it all finished:
|Tomb King General|
|12mm Kalistra Skeletons / 10mm Games Workshop Skeletons|
|10mm Games workshop / 12mm Kalistra Skeleton Cavalry|
|12mm Kalistra / 10mm Games Workshop skeletons|
|The Undead Army|
