With a skeleton army we won't have to risk the lives of the living.

When the army is unyielding, the tactics shift to target the more vulnerable support structures for it. The living, by definition, will always be at risk.

Ah, too many ambitions, and not enough morals.

Wrong pitch, that's certain. The hero never supports vainglorious enterprise. Now if she had said, "But we NEED the skeleton army to protect ourselves against the coming invasion!", that might have got some traction.

Not to mention they were doing it hidden away from everyone … that doesn't exactly support a beneficial setup.

I once read a short story, where a kingdom is about to get steamrolled by a bunch of Orcs, and the local King suddenly get a request from a Necromancer that is locked up in his dungeons, "Set me free, and I will raise your entire cemetary as fighters to protect their very own offspring".

Now, despite the creepiness of it, it suddenly makes more sense, since they had lived and died for the city, they would not be against doing it once again.

And sure enough, some of them relish the opportunity to rise once again as skeletons and kill some orcs.
Some of them even got quite powerful, because they weren't opposed to be raised again.

It was an interesting twist, to an old problem.
Poor Orcs though, they didn't fare well !
