On a Miscast roll of 6, the opposing player can immediately cast a spell of his choosing which goes off normally and can be dispelled by the enemy player.
In the Case of Tomb Kings which have no casting values for spells and whose spells could be cast on zero (E.g. with the HE old drain magic spell) would you roll for the casting value or would it have a casting value of 0?

Tomb Kings cannot take advantage of this miscast result, or anything else of the same sort, as stated in the TK army book on their Incantations page. Its also in the FAQ I think.
Ok, well here are the 2 scenarios, as I see them:
1) The Tomb Kings miscast and roll a 6 on the miscast table:
Can't happen, since the Tomb kings can never miscast. This will mean that this rule will never apply to them, so the casting value of zero is of no consequence.
2) The opposition player miscasts and rolls a 6 on the miscast table:
The Tomb kings player would pick a spell of that opposition mage and cast it at it's casting value. I.E. If they choose to pick fiery blast out of the lore of fire, then the spell is automatically cast on an 8, and therefore can then be dispelled as the opponent is able.
I hope this helps
And now I have a proper answer:
Q. Can a Tomb Kings army take advantage of a "5-6" result for a
Miscast by an enemy wizard? A "5-6" result on the Miscast table
allows one of the opponent's wizards to have a "free" casting of
A. No. A Tomb Kings army cannot take advantage of magical powers
from such things as an enemy Miscast.

This is taken from the Direwolf FAQ. It appears I was wrong, but you can't win them all.
