    With the new khaine magic my mighty skeleton horde will be returning.

    So in the old vamp book all vamps could increase skele units and for yeahs this allowed me to dominate the battlefield (through sheer weight of numbers). The new Khaine magic allows you to repeatedly cast spells so my level 4 necro can now boost my skeles a few times a turn i use to have 6 units of 10 and they were 30+ after turn one.

    So my question is, is this viable with the changes to magic now?

    and what will you be doing with the changes to magic?

    The issue with the khaine magic is that the opponent will also be able to do the same as you and with lore of undeath.
    I do not like the rules in the slightest, me and my group came up with the idea of keeping the end time spells, only on lvl 4s.
    I think taking an undead legion is the best bet and then casting the return of the golden age as it will affect all models in the list.
    This will make zombies better than goblins!!! haha.

    All you would need to do is get a lvl3/4 tombking wizard and you get +1 S,WS and initiative on all units that are undead.

    I can't remember if it uses the lore attribute, if so then yes.

    The Tomb King spell is augment. I have used it for my Undead Legion (had a horde of 70 TK skels working their way through horde of 40 Sword masters). The increase to initiative isn't that important, but the increase to strength makes carving up units a bit easier. The wording of the spell is important, do you take Tomb King skeletons or VC skeletons, because the spell only targets units from the Tomb Kings book.

    If I might ask, has anyone used the Lore of Undeath spell? I've had a lot of success with this spell especially when I coupled it with the Incantation of Desiccation, turned a horde of 17 ogre bulls into S1 T1 flowers.
