Lord #1 will benefit more from infinite hatred in combat than Walking Death especially with red fury. Being able to re-roll missed attacks should at least net that +1 to combat res, if not more, in all but the unluckiest circumstances.

I agree.

Also, I would take out the fell bats for more dogs or ghouls.

As he's in the unit with the strigos banner, he will have the reroll for the first round and the bonus from walking death.... hopefully they'll do a good job of breaking on the charge, otherwise I could be in a spot of trouble there!

Want the fell bats for a cheap and fast screen for the blood knights (in case my doggie trap is chasing dragons and such) or if necessary to give some warmachines something to think about!

I certainly seemed to run out of points at 3k even faster than at 2k for some reason! I'd like to beef up the ghoul units somewhat, but can't seem to find the points to sacrifice off something else to make it worthwhile....
