So ive been thinking but doing an undead 40k army. now i want to do an undead imperial guard force. so my question to all you experts out there is....what units to use? ive have some ideas but not sure how to build the army i want but also one thats competitive as well lol. any help would be great.
more like which units lol. im planning to have pyskers as necrmancer types but besides that im not real sure what units
i guess that a huge platoon blob kitted for close combat (commissars + power weapons) can quite work as a zombie mob.
You can you take skelies legs hands and heads from fantasy with guard helms and torsos and stuff as skeleton platoons too.

Please please post some pics when done.
Praise be to the Emperor!!
Maiden!!! Anyways buy a box of scellies, zombies, and a box of guard and mix them up.
I'd suggest you taking: hq lord commisair and/or primaris psyker, elites psyker battle squad and ogryns, for heavy support some tank or two troops: lots of infantry plattons and/or penal legioners, but don't forget about ministorium priests with eviscicators.
Ohhhhh mannn you TOTALLY need to take Chenkov as a Necromancer.
He gives you two really awesome abilities that fit perfectly in the theme of this list:
First off he exudes a 12 inch stubborn bubble. This means your troops will stick in combat representing the hideous shambling undead minions mindlessly obeying their overlord's wishes.
Secondly he gives you "Send in the next wave" for conscripts. While not completely competitive it can be a pretty nice ability when applied to 30+ conscripts. You can basically keep bringing in the unit back in every time it is destroyed representing the necromancer raising waves of zombies!
This works best as an objective-holder for a home objective since the unit is basically unkillable. It also works nicely when you're being pressed back onto your board edge since with good placement you can ensure the wave of conscripts keeps coming back into play every turn.
