Necromancer (Nightmare)Necromancers summon the dead to fight for them, hurling risen cadavers to join the fray in their name.
Necromancers are amongst the most cursed of all those who practice the magical arts, for they have exchanged their humanity for the ability to raise the dead and command them to wage war upon the living. Strange as it may seem, these depraved madmen have made this dread pact willingly. At the heart of each Necromancer's morbid obsession is the need to subjugate and punish those who have persecuted him in the past, regardless of the cost.

Leadership (Base Morale)55
- Master of the Dead
Necromancers can not only marshall the dead, but leech the power from any souls fleeing their mortal remains.
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.
