Black coach is a risk in this magic heavy army as it could suck up all your power dice. Also units of 20 skeletons are not really big enough, nor are spears really worth it for tarpits (the 6++ is more useful than you might think).

It would be an intersting army to play though, although you may struggle to cause enough damage to gain massive victories.

Why are you mounting Manfred? And where is your fighting block??

This army is to have fun with and
is part of Mannfred's history

Mounted will give a 3+ save

The army is about Mannfred's history
and he would have a Black coach

I don't have massive units and like the
20 man units a part from Zombies

Safer unmounted I think, as he will then get Look Out Sir tests.

It dose not take to much to make unmounted

But the main thing is that the rest of the army is right for Mannfred

What other units could you include that fits in with fluff? Herminard is right, wheres the ooomph? Maybe there is a unit you can fluff wise put in but don't have the points for.
