Warcry/Tactics/Nighthaunt

From 1d4chan

The dead souls of Allpoints were mostly a local hazard than a threat, but then Nagash contacted them with a deal... Revolving mostly on the Starter set's stuff (Chainrasps, Stalkers & Reapers) plus Spirit hosts; so if you have the bigger ones, you're set. Attrition is their key, using their great defense, but meager offense.
