Ghouls all the way. Their T4 is better than a skeles armor save every time. Their 2 poisoned attacks each are good enough to actually do damage. Skeles get better static res so at least they have something going for them. I definitely prefer ghouls, though.

Ghouls are better if you lan towards a combat army. Skeletons get a banner and an armour save, personally I suck at armour save so ghouls all the way. Ghouls also do better against gunlines.

Let me help you with this oh-so-difficult decision.

Take Ghouls and don't EVER look back.

I like skeles because i run a skele horde army. the armor save is really useful in most cases, and ive been meaning to try using spears into my list.

I do like taking a 10 man ghoul unit for some flank offense though. but i generally dontlike them because they have no armor and Lord of the dead doesnt affect them.

I like skellies the best! Works best with HW/Shield but spears look so much better! ;) I prefer skellies over ghouls gamewise as well as fluffwise.

I only include a unit of ghouls in my army to get some variation.

I like Skeletons, personally. I like having the armor save, and more imporataly, command, on my infantry units.

I do like Ghouls, but preferred them to be skirmishers and Alive as they were in 6th ed. I do like that Ghoul Kin allows a move, and would certainly like said option with my skeletons.

In the end, the biggest reason I like skeletons for my units is that I have the models. If Ghouls were a main infantry unit as they are now when I had started VC, I may have opted for them instead. Hard to say, really.

Skellies. I like being able to take a magic banner (if I want) and not have to completely rely on active res to win a combat. I also like having a 4+ save in combat as I run them with HW/S rather than spears.
