2000 exactly watcha think??
I like the list alot, no ovious weakness' and it does have alot of hitting power and staying power, the only thing i would serioulsy consider is to change the undead legion banner to the warbanner, that way if you get hit in the flank or rear you still get the bonus and you don't HAVE to keep up the 4th rank for the bonus, it is just a more reliable bonus for the same points.
One more thing is if you are gonna take the cursed pendant i would take it on a block of zombies and use that unit to die and rederect something early on like Knights, but then again i would probably just drop the cursed pendant, as taking it means in order to get any use out of it you have to lose the unit as we can't flee to lose the banner, and with the ability to raise models back i don't plan on losing any units, add a few direwolves with the points from the unit so you can use the challange trap.
Hope these suggestions help you out,
they do, i used to take the pendant alot just for funsies coz i play high elves alot, and it spites my opponent with the choice of keeping the banner and his unit taking hits, or dropping it and loosing the 100vp, which has made a difference in a close game
and the banner i have is the dead legion not endless nightmare, theyre unit strength counts as double, this may seem silly on skeletons i can raise, but it means even if i get charged by a block of knights i still usually have 3 ranks from start of combat, banner, outnumber and whatever wounds my lord has done, to whatever wounds they caused+banner, its not great but means im very rarely outnumbered, and ppl who take blocks of 30 clan rats are always suprised when i tell them i outnumber them
il prob drop the pendant for warbanner tho, thanks for the advice
