Hey, I know there have been a couple of other skull thread, but I thought I would start a new one that is specific to confirmed skull locations and that has some information I haven't seen posted yet.

First off, this community is awesome. I haven't been here for years since I helped get it up and running way back in 2006. I want to commend everyone that has stayed around since than. I probably won't stay long again, but I just wanted to drop by with some information I haven't seen posted yet.


Now, how to find the skulls. Each level in Halo Wars has an optional objective where you are asked to kill a certain number amount of a certain unit type, such as killing 100 Grunts in the first mission, Alpha Base. Once this objective has been completed, the skull location will flash on the mini-maps for a couple seconds, so it's important to watch the map as you complete the objective. To simplify this, the objective will have a counter that pops up every time you kill a unit of the designated unit type. Example, the HUD will show "56/100 Grunts Killed" or something similar. Here is the information I have managed to find thus far. One last thing to note, is that the skull will not appear in it's location until the objective has been met.

Hopefully when the game comes out, map images will also start to pop up so that we can pinpoint them exactly with an image.
