I don't see anything in that army, apart from the wight king, that will actually generate much in terms of kills. I would ditch the Mortis Engine and Corpse Cart in favour of some hexwraiths, drop all the musicians and one zombie unit, and get some ghouls in there. And then play around with items.

Those would be my suggestions.

Agreed. While you should have a crapload of zombies by the time you get stuck into combat, they're not going to do anything once you get there. It seems the idea is to put a combat hero in a unit of zombies and let him get kills while the zombies give static resolution. The problem is that zombies die so unbelievably fast that they're more a liability than anything. Really, a unit like Saurus/Chaos Warriors/Swordmasters will instantly dissolve even a giant zombie unit, making the hero crumble with it. It wouldn't take long for a basic core unit to do the same. Hexwraiths would be a good pickup. The cart is basically wasted, since you don't have anything worth giving ASF to. I would drop the engine and cart to make room for a unit of Hexwraiths. Maybe drop the number of zombies down a little to reach your minimum core and use all the excess points on some knights or GG (not sure on the actual points values here, I'm on my phone so I can't open up Army Builder)?
