Yah its a nice change over from when skeletons and zombies where stupidly overpriced for what they offered even back in 7tth.

Well if I did a all zombies army this is the tactic idea i had.

You start off with your starting blocks the start filling in the gaps with the 0VP zombies units so that in the end my spell casters should be surrounded with zombies.Hopefully protecting them from harm.



So I am growing my enemy.....so what I gotta kill something.

very boring to play with/against and if the opponent can deal with zombies then you've lost right from the outset... not a great tactic really.

Well its more of a visual fun thing for me. I would find a guy that wouldnt mind playing against it. For me it is a end goal for my VC I really want to field a all zombie army never said I wanted to win.

... at which point it stops being an all-zombie army and becomes a fairly effective hammer and anvil army instead. Which I wouldn't say was boring for anyone and should be fairly effective.


As for an all-zombie army: if that's really what you want to do then go for it... but I would make it a 500, 750 or possibly 1k army max since you'll still have a huge number of zombies to buy/paint and it'll be most effective at that points level. Winning may not be important, but if you can't compete then its no fun for anyone.
A 2k+ zombie army with nothing else but a few characters would need a massive number of zombies between deployment and potential raises (I recon 5-600 would be about the minimum you would need to make a decent go of it).
