Weapons- May have weapons from Necromancer list
Skills- Leadership, may start with 1 spell chosen at random

Special notes: If the Necromancer dies then the Apprentice takes over the warband. He will take all of the old necromancerís books and scroll and such and start teaching himself. He is the only one who can maintain the warband so if the warband has no Apprentice or necromancer then the undead turn to dust. If your Apprentice becomes the leader he will become a Necromancer and you can hire a new Apprentice.

For magic use the Necromancer spells in the Mordheim rule book.

Apprentice 40 gold

The Apprentice is a student of the Necromancer that has began to learn how to control the great art of Necromancy. Though still learning he can maintain the undead in the warband if needed.

Undead vulture 20 cost

Vultures are even pulled into the ranks of the undead. The Necromancer some times will leave pieces of flesh out in the desert to attrack vultures. Then with a few well placed arrows he can get some undead scouts. The undead vultures make great scouts and add valuble speed to the slow undead force.

Undead: The vulture suffers from all rules that undead suffer from. (Can't gain experience, can't run, causes fear, does not suffer from stun, and such)

Flyers: The Bats ignore terrain when they move and can freely charge any model, regardless of height and interceptors, that they can see. Also shooting and hth suffer -1 to hit do to how hard it is to hit something flying.

Fragile: Birds, even undead ones, are more fragile than humans. They use the following Injury chart= 1-3 Knocked Down (Do to the fact they know no pain), 4-6 Out of action.

Undead Golem 200 gold upkeep 15

The undead golem is a batch of human part specially collected and put together to create a monstrous brute. The technique to create such a monster was drerived from the study of undead creatures known as mummies. This brute is remarkable strong and is often a Necromancerís master piece. Also because of the elite nature of the body it needs more maintance then most undead and an upkeep must be paid to maintain it. Also the golemís mind is more advance then a zombies but not up to a human level. These a golem may improve but never learn new things.
