What you want for a truly strategic game is multiple different objectives with different benefits for completion along with PvP benefits. You want people to wrack their brains thinking, ok I can send three guys after each chaos sorcerer with a sniper and two lasrifles in each group and that would leave me with 5 more to raid bob's supplies, but then what if ted swings around to raid me? What you don't want is WOOOO! DAKKADAKKADAKKA!

Things that would help are a restrictive time limit with a VP system as well as some simultaneous action declaration system. (so players can't figure out what everyone else is doing and react immediately) Perhaps dividing your force into 3-6 fireteams and writing out general orders on a flashcard before each turn. (ex. fireteam one, hold position, fireteam two, move northwest and fire at nearby zombies, fireteam three move south and charge bob's camp) With the actual specifics of exactly how far to move, which enemies to shoot determined as you go.

Boz, I'm now feeling a Daemon army. Tzeentch Style. Herald of Tzeentch with boon of mutation (at the very least, you should set a point limit or we can go way overboard), 2 Flamers, and 5 pink horrors.

You could borrow the 'Random Movement' rule from warhammer fantasy, unless there's already a similar rule in 40K. I also have a rule for you.

BRAINS!

The zombies have the insatiable lust for your brains, and will put themselves in any line of fire just to get some; they run at you with their all as fast as they can with their rotting limbs. If a zombie unit has line of sight to an enemy unit within ^18 inches, they will lose the random movement and slow and purposeful rules. Instead, the zombie unit must move directly towards the enemy unit. The zombie unit may not run during this turn [Note: This is so the zombie player can't run the unit in an attempt to make it fairer for the opponent, thus not being able to assault. I don't think they should have fleet of foot as zombies at their best aren't going to be that fast.] and must assault during the assault phase if possible. If more than one enemy unit is within eighteen inches of this unit, the zombie unit will move towards the closest of the two. If players cannot decide which is closest, randomly determine a unit.

^If Night Fighting is in effect, the zombie player must roll 2D6*3 (To a maximum of 18) for each zombie unit. This range then replaces the 18 inch range.

E.G. Roll 2D6, Get 1 and 4, 1 + 4 = 5, 5 * 3 = 15, Replace "If a zombie If a zombie unit has line of sight to an enemy unit within 18 inches" with "If a zombie unit has line of sight to an enemy unit within 15 inches"

I said in an earlier post I'm going to ban daemons and tyranids. Because of how inaffective they would be in this game type on the nids side and things like that on tzeench side.

I said i don't want a tzeench player walking in there saying "Do spells cause noise" or a khorne or whatever player saying "Well i don't have a bike i have a mount" or "I have a sword so I'm going to go smash face and take the ammo supply so nobody else can have it!"

So i will be dropping those armies. (nids and daemons)

I suppose it depends how big the board is and how dense the zombies are.. But I think 12 inches is too far away. At 18 inches, they move 12 inches towards you and you've got the opportunity to shoot them.

I said 12 inches is too far away.. I meant twelve inches is too close. If they're 18 inches away, they move six inches, next turn, move six inches, assault the last six inches. Gives opportunity to run away or fire at them.
