I've gone and bought some of the new Skeletons today along with a box of Empire State Troops with a plan to kitbash them together.
My only problem is, now that I've got them where do I start??
Any help will be most gratefully received as I've really hit a road block with this.

I find it helpful to start with the body and work outwards. So decide how you want the legs and torso to look, then the rest will be easy..

Can't improve on that. Start with blu-tak and the bitz you are going to use. Use the blu-tak and your imagination to figure out what you want to do, and then build from the core outwards. The only thing I can add to that is to take it slow and easy: check everything, think it through, it'll be worth it in the end.

I know the posing isn't brilliant I was trying to use bits I'd not miss if it didn't work out.
I've basically given the skull a neck and swapped over to skeletal hands.

That works alright, yeah. At this point, just use a little GS here and there to make it seem more cohesive, and that should cover it. As to posing, I find it helpful to pre-pose- use blu-tak wherever possible, and try the pose you want yourself, you'll quickly discover what is "natural" and what isn't.

Blu-tac is definately the way for posing.
model is looking good, nice job with the hat.
could probably do with bit more bone exposed on some of them but otherwise good.
