Total Roster Cost: 2500

The main unit of course is the Grave Guard which will have all characters outside of the necromancer, who will be with the 20 zombie bunker. Horde formation.

The 60 Zombies are there as a Tarpit, though of course not to be used against elite units as they won't last long enough.

The 30 Ghouls still provide a great threat against moderate to low armored foes. Horde formation.

The Wolves provide disruption and Warmachine hunting.

I like having Spirit Hosts in there as the enemy either has to waste magic trying to take out one model, or risk it disrupting them. Plus it is an answer to the steam tank. Would actually like more but one was all I could fit.

Corpse Cart to help with raising. Keep it near the Ghouls also because they aremost likely the only ones where ASF will matter.

Terrorgheist and Black Coach provide extra combat power where needed.

Thanks for any input.

Not bad but everyone is going to focus that grave guard unit assuming you make it hard to target the rare choices.
