Thoughts
So, what I'm going for here is the theme of 'lower' undead. The sort of horde that might be called together and led by an animalistic Ghoul King. So to my mind that excludes black knights, wights, vampires, anything terribly ethereal (so wraiths, banshees, spirit hosts, mortis engines or coven thrones) and so on.

What are peoples thoughts?

Hello there

-Take dispel scroll over cursed book.
-You need a bunker for the necros or they are toast. Take 2 units of zombies instead. Three casters spamming IoN in the first few turns will beef up the units.

ToP on the Ghoul King ... don't know really.
You're essentialy wasting the 5+ regen he comes with, so you might just a well opt to go for a vampire lord instead if you want the ToP.

He's going for a Strigoi-esque theme, that's why I didn't suggest taking a VL.
Exactly. I know it's a waste of his built in regen, but I don't like the idea of relying only on a 5+ save. I know a VL is a better option for defense, but I'm trying to find a way to make a SGK work.

If I wasn't going to take Winged Horror what would be another good way to spend those points?
