    Hey everyone! Just recently got back into Warhammer and man do I ever love the new rules!

    So I've been agonizing for awhile over which faction I want to main and have settled down on Death. I can finally field an all skeleton army and have some fun! Also, I can also field Zombies and have them be decent!

    Below are a few lists I've thought up. Please let me know if something is off.

    Deathrattle (1000pts)
    Wight King - Black Axe - Gen
    Wight King - Infernal Standard
    Skeleton Warriors x40
    Skeleton Warriors x10
    Skeleton Warriors x10
    Grave Guard x10
    Black Knights x5

    Command Trait: Ruler of the Night: Add 1 to the dice roll to see if wounds are negated by the Deathless Minions battle trait.
    Artefact: Ring of Immortality on General

    ** If allowed to use battalion warscrolls I would most likely drop 5 grave guard for the Deathrattle battalion warscroll for the extra movement.

    ================================

    Deathrattle (960pts) - The Midnight Hunt
    Wight King on SS (Gen)
    Wight King on SS + Inf Stand
    Black Knights x10
    Black Knights x10
    Black Knights x5
    Dire Wolves x5
    Dire Wolves x5

    Command Trait: Supernatural Horror: Double the number of models that flee from enemy units if they are within 10" of your general in the battleshock phase.
    Artefact: Ring of Immortality on General

    =================================

    Not Deathrattle (880pts - 120pts reserve for summoning) - Night of the Living Dead
    Necromancer (Gen)
    Wight King + Inf Stand
    Zombies x20
    Zombies x20
    Zombies x20
    Corpse Cart
    Corpse Cart
    Dire Wolves x5
    Dire Wolves x5

    Command Trait: Ruler of the Night: Add 1 to the dice roll to see if wounds are negated by the Deathless Minions battle trait.
    Artefact: Ring of Immortality on General
    **NOTE: Don't forget that zombies can voltron to become powerhouse units. Then you can just summon another unit with your necromancer to hold objectives.
    ***NOTE: Try to keep your necro surrounded by zombies. This will give him a armor save with cover(5+), then his invuln Death faction save(5+), then his roll to move the wound (4+). Then you move it to the zombie unit and they make their death faction save (5+)


    Those are the first three lists I've come up with. I'm trying to stay clear of the battalion warscrolls as even though the deathrattle warscroll is good and I want to use it. My group does not play with them right now as everyone is starting up and we are playing for fun.

    Black knights aren't partiality good. I might either leave them out or at least put them in a group of 10 so they can act as a tar pit which is all they're good for now.
