44 Zombies - Standard + Musician - 142pts

20 Archers - Standard - 130pts

3 Chariots - 165pts

3 Chariots - 165pts

3 Vargheist - 138pts

Terrorgheist - 225pts

Casket - 135pts

Having had a chance to see people enjoy the book there's a few things I noticed...

Raising the monsters and larger stuff is much harder (24+ to cast).

The regular and monstrous infantry and beasts are much easier to raise.

That being said the best way then is to build a list that includes the things you need and are harder to raise...

So I would be looking at:-

Nagash

Necro or two.

Core that you think you need, is be partial to skeleton archers plus some dogs.

Very little special

Max rare - casket of souls is a must have, maybe even a hiero Titan,

Or double terrogheist.

That way your only needing a 16+ to raise your monstrous infantry or infantry.

I like the advice and does make sense thinking about it.

My re-draft is:

Nagash - 1000pts

46 Zombies - Standard + Musician - 148pts

20 Archers - Standard - 130pts

3 Chariots - Standard - 175pts

3 Chariots - Standard - 175pts

2 warsphinx with roar - 460pts

Casket - 135pts

Hierotitan - 175pts

Nice, you should be able to handle the summoning now, and don't forget to use lore of vamps on any support casters...they will need to help too up Nagash so he can't be cannoned off.

My recommendation for using nagash would to be focusing the rest of your points on ranged things - stuff like terrorgheists, screaming catapults, archers etc.
Since nagash can raise a unit of 100 zombies for a casting cost of 14 36" away, you will have enough to stop your opponent coming to you - and if they do, you can raise a warsphinx with a single spell.
Keep the hierotitan and the casket - these units are essential for getting good magic phases when you're spending 1000 points on a caster!

Also I don't think you can heal nagash, since he is a character :(
