I've been thinking about doing an undead horde for ages now. I really the the idea the Harryhausen esqe skeletons roaming across the land. I really want to push that Horde of death kinda vibe, so hordes rather than huge monsters.

Lords

Vampire Lord
-Master of the Black Arts
-The Flayed Hauberk
-Blood Drinker

Heroes
Necromancer
-Invocation
-Dance Macabre
-Raise Dead
-Septre de Noirot

Necromancer
-Invocation
-Dance Macabre

Vampire
Ghoulkin

Core

40 Skeletons
- FC
- Banner of Endless Nightmare

30 Crypt Ghouls

20 Zombies
- FC

Corpse Cart
- Unholy Lodestone


Corpse Cart
- Unholy Lodestone

Special
30 Grave Guard
- FC

20 Grave Guard
- FC
- Great Weapons

Rare
Black Coach

So i've got 4 casters to try and bolster my forces, I was looking at the block of 30 Ghoul Kin with the Vampire to get the Early march and get into combat fast. I was thinking 6x5 for them. Them with the big block of Skeletons try to be my Anvils as it were. With the Grave Guard giving me some hitting power. My Vampire lord rocks out with the big Grave Guard unit.

What to do with the Necromancers is a problem, I was thinking about them taking the Corpse Carts as mounts, riding along behind my big units. But that leaves them vulnerable to cannon fire etc. Or maybe I should throw them into units drop the Corpse Carts and buy some more toys, maybe a Second Black Coach with the points.

Thoughts?

I was thinking of using Zombies as charge redirectors hence the Sceptre. That and 4 Power dice can net you 12+ D3 + 3D6 Zombies, so 16-33 Zombies. I have no idea if that is useful though.

I was thinking GhoulKin might be handy, an 8" vanguard move essentially. That can put us only 10" from the enemy lines, which is very chargeable on the first turn. But perhaps not. So ward saves for the Vampires then.

Should I mount the Necromancers on the Corpse Carts?

perhaps Lords and Heros more like

Vampire Lord
-Master of the Black Arts
-The Flayed Hauberk
-Crown of the Dammed

Heroes
Necromancer
-Invocation
-Dance Macabre
