The Undead Legion Army List

Details are starting to leak on the Nagash-inspired UNDEAD LEGION list. A quick count shows that you have 61 different unit choices - and an increased chance to play Herohammer - with a Lord allowance of 50%.

Here are the individual unit choices:


Mannfred von Carstein, Mortarch of Night
Arkhan the Black, Mortarch of Sacrament
Neferata, Mortarch of Blood
Krell, Mortarch of Despair
Vlad von Carstein, Mortarch of Shadow
Vampire Lord
High Necromancer
Ghoul King Strigoi
High Queen Khalida
Tomb King
High Liche Priest


Wight King
Cairn Wraith
Tomb Banshee
Prince Apophas
Tomb Prince
Tomb Herald
Liche Priest

Core Units

Vampire Counts Skeleton Warriors
Cypt Ghouls
Dire Wolves
Tomb Kings Skeleton Warriors
Skeleton Archers
Skeleton Horsemen
Skeleton Horsemen with bows
Skeleton Chariot

Special Units

Corpse Cart
Grave Guard
Black Knights
Cypt Horrors
Fell Bats
Bat Swarm
Spirit Host
Tomb Guards
Necropolis Knights
Tomb Scorpion
Tomb Swarm
Khemrian Warsphinx
Sepulchral Stalkers
Morgast Harbingers

Rare Units

Blood Knights
Cairn Wraiths
Black Coach
Mortis Engine
Bones Giant
Screaming Skull Catapult
Casket of Souls
Morghast Archai

So what an absolute smorgasbord of unit choices. The potential to make a killer characterful list from this is phenomenal - mixing Skeleton Archers, VC Ethereals for a start.

Not too sure that TOs will be keen to let this genie out of the bottle.....not without other End Times books also in play.


  1. Yeah I'm a little concerned over that list. Now i'm not Vamps or TK player, so please chime in a more educated opinion, but why would anyone play individual Vamps or TK when they have all the toys and can mix and match with the Undead Legion?

    Now we've not seen the Army book so sure, there could be other factors, but on the face of it why play one when you can play two at once?

    And if the trend holds true for Chaos (Deamons + WoC + Beasts) does that effectively eliminate three more armies in place of one?

    Little anxious for what will be of the hobby if that's the case


    1. Allan, my anxiety grows by the moment if this is the direction WHFB is taking. I suspect the Empire and Brettonia may eventually follow suit. Using my current (8500 pt) VC list and the leaked Undead spells, I will have to fork out NZ$ 750 just to have a competitive list (Incl the books, and Nagash and spells, and the missing models I'll need to to make the spells castable, and my list playable)

  2. well if you add it as a percentage of the 8500 you've already spent.... Does'nt seem so bad does it?
