Master Necromancer (Corpse Cart (Balefire))Drifting between the living and the dead, a Master Necromancer summons Undead minions to fight enemies on his behalf.
As a man follows the dark path of the Necromancer, he becomes ever more detached from his mortal roots. Morbidly questing after the secrets of death, a Necromancer deeply steeped in the lore of the dead stands on the threshold between worlds, neither wholly alive, nor one of the Undead. His body twisted with unholy power, his mind seared by the horrors he has witnessed, a Necromancer often has more in common with his lurching, moaning minions than with the living he seeks to slay.

Balefire contains trace elements of Warpstone, so the burning braziers slowly drive mortal men to madness.
- Vigour Mortis
The Corpse Cart hardens shattered spirits and emboldens tattered bodies to ever greater acts of violence.
- Undeath Resurgent
Arise! Do not falter! Do not crumble! Back to life once more!
- Master of the Dead
Necromancers can not only marshall the dead, but leech the power from any souls fleeing their mortal remains.
There are beings and creatures that can mend bone and knit flesh at an incredible rate. A mighty boon, but one stunted by fire.
The dead do not rest easily in the Old World. Those summoned by Vampires and Necromancers no longer have mortal concerns - they serve only their master's will.
The Dark Magic binding has failed. Both flesh and necromantic energy slough off the subjects leaving naught but dust.
- Causes Fear
This unit frightens all enemy units, reducing their leadership when nearby. It is also immune to fear. Fear penalties do not stack.
