Undead

Necromancy is the most abhorrent form of sorcery, and all who practise it are hated and feared in equal measure. In violation of natural law, Necromancers are able to use their power to defy death itself, extending their own lives virtually indefinitely. - Excerpt From "The Book of the Dead"


An Army of the Undead is a truly terrifying sight. Many armies do not even wait to recieve the charge - they drop their weapons and run. The vision they see is an army of once proud and great warriors, now little more than corpses controlled by foul necromancy, goaded into battle by their Lords and Champions. Their lines of infantry are little more than a mass of rot and decay, their cavalry take to the field atop skeletal steeds, and their war machines fling baleful fire and ensorcelled skulls.

There are many types of Undead in the world, from shattered skeletons brought back to life by the power of necromancy, to ethereal wraiths clinging to existence through sheer malice alone, or even the Vampiric captains and warriors cursed to stalk the living to sustain their own immortality. In battle, an Undead army is nigh unstoppable and, when the elite souls of warriors long dead are forced to take up arms once more, wicked balefire burning in their eyes, there are few opponents who will stand against them.

The Undead are terrifying foes to face on the field of battle, knowing nothing of fear, remorse, pain or exhaustion. They are notoriously difficult to destroy, and can usually only be stopped by smashing their skulls to splinters; if hacked in half, they will merely drag themselves forward, the need to kill impelling them on. Even when finally stopped, they may yet prove a threat, for with just one spell, a Necromancer is able to re-knit smashed bone and force the fallen to rise once again.

 

The Undead were Mantic's second army, and are a firm favourite with players all around the world. The Undead section of the Mantic website has a full list of products that are available if you'd like to start your own cursed legion, and you can download the Undead Force List for free. The list also appears in the Kings of War Hardback rulebook, along with plenty of background about the army as well as the world of Mantica in general! The Mantic Forum is a great place to discuss all things Mantic, and the Undead sub-forum is well worth checking out if you're thinking of starting a collection.
