Back in the late ‘80s, an opponent of mine had some of the first GW multi-part skeletons.  Those things were insanely fragile; they would practially fall apart if you breathed on them.  It was an idea whose time had not yet come...

Grump has about a gazillion and a half of those. The ones where helmets are separate and glued onto the heads.

 

I don't know how he glued them, but they aren't falling apart.

 

But sculpting has come a long way since then.

Zvezda had a line of minis called Ring of Rule with some cool roman skeletons called the cursed legion. They are roughly 28mm and I considered buying them but the shop owner let me see inside the box and it was sooo many tiny pieces to glue together. Afterwards I read reviews where a lot of people complained about how hard it was. My wife gave me a BMP model for my birthday from them ages ago and I never finished it because I had to glue every link in the tracks seperately. I worked on it when I had a wrecked knee and was on crutches for a month or so and it nearly got thrown out the window a couple times. Still have it in a box in the basement on the farm. I like putting together mulitpaart minis but there are some limits to how many stinking pieces I want to glue to finish a model. Especially if I need tweezers just to pick the pieces up.

Someone probably should make single-part plastic skeletons. You don't always need skeletons to be superdynamic and if they're basically a chesspiece they should be durable enough. One sprue with like ten varieties with spears and shields, one sprue with hand weapons, then a separate mould for bows and then one for two-handed weapons. I think it could work fairly well. Should be easy to rank up, too.
