Alongside the stunning new model of Nagash and the epic events surrounding his rebirth, there’s also a new set of rules for the Great Necromancer, enabling you to use him in your Warhammer battles. They, along with many others, can be found in Warhammer: Nagash Book II.
The second book in the Warhammer: Nagash double-whammy contains all the rules you need to field an Undead army during the End Times. It has full rules and bestiary entries for Nagash and his most-trusted lieutenants, plus 19 scenarios based on the battles mentioned in the first book. But that’s not all. It also includes full rules for fighting on haunted battlefields (bring a ghost-detector, that’s my advice) and features an Undead Legions army list enabling you to combine Vampire Counts and Tomb Kings into one vast Undead horde.
You don’t have to be Undead to enjoy the fruits of this book, either, as everyone now has access to the Lore of Undeath, a new magic discipline. With the Wind of Shyish blowing a gale following Nagash’s resurrection, any wizard from any army can now summon Undead creatures to do their bidding. Some of you may turn your nose up in disgust, but a freshly-raised unit of Grave Guard can be pretty handy when you’re battling a tide of Plaguebearers. You can raise pretty much any unit, too, making it a great excuse to paint some Skeletons, Ushabti or even a Terrorgheist to fight alongside your existing army.
If your love of Warhammer is still not sated by these two books, make sure you pick up The Return of Nagash by Josh Reynolds, which tells the tale of Nagash’s resurrection at the hands of Mannfred von Carstein and Arkhan the Black.
