On one of the Aztec levels I tried this out, and it work pretty well. Build one or two necromancers and have a bunch of dartblowers in front of them. If you time it just right, the necromancers will create skeletons in front of the dartblowers, which protects them long enough to help kill the enemy. Once you get them in this position, blow all of your money on more dartblowers. They will eventually join the others and form an unstoppable force.

Of course, I only tried this once, so let me know if it works for you guys.

I have tried this strategy as well and it works EXCELLENTLY. However, I believe it could be stopped by the Chinese's Arrow Rain or the Vikings' Snowstorm/Hammer of Thor, although I haven't tested it out.

works brilliantly.

in skirmish against AI this strategy always wins on normal difficulty vs. any opponent on a small map, and often on larger maps.

came across it this morning. it's a simple setup, little research required so you can do it early and cheaply.

Its powerful,but easily beatable.One arrow rain,a catapult,one thor,or something else AoE related can destroy them all in seconds

Well i find this strategy to be very good but also very easy to ruin (lighting,arrow rain,rocketeers,anything with splash damage) so i would usually send a group of dartblowers, panther warroirs and 3-4 necros so wen panther warriors die (or kill some1) more skeleton :D
