No problem -

All based on RRP.  

Games Workshop Vampire Counts Battalion

20 Skeleton Warriors (including Champion, Standard Bearer and Musician),
10 Ghouls (including Champion),
20 Zombies (including Standard Bearer and Musician) and
1 Corpse Cart.

Total = 60

King of War Undead Army set - 49.99

40 Skeletons with Command
20 armoured skeletal Revenants with Command
20 Ghouls
30 Zombies

So for 10 LESS... you lose the Corpse Cart, but gain 20 Skeletons, 20 Revenants, 10 Ghouls and 10 Zombies.  The 10 saved could go towards a Corpse Cart though (16.50)  So, down 1 chariot type monster, up 60 infantry.



Looking at it more closely, and opting for other Mantic Undead sets you could choose either 1 each or two of the Undead Warhost or Alternative Warhost, (30 each) or any 3 from the Omens of Death and/or Soultaker detatchments (20 each).

Undead Warhost (The cost of the Infantry alone from GW is 97.50, meaning that, rather than buying the contents of this set from GW, you could get 3 Mantic sets, and still have 7.50 left to buy Mhorgoth and a sausage roll...)

1 x Undead Skeleton Regiment (20 Figures with Command Group)
1 x Undead Revenant Regiment (20 Figures with Command Group)
1 x Ghoul Troop (10 Figures)
1 x Balefire Catapult Frame
1 x Catapult Crew Frame (2 FIgures)  

Alternative Warhost  (GW cost - 113...)

1 x Undead Skeleton Regiment (20 Figures with Command Group)
1 x Undead Revenant Regiment (20 Figures with Command Group)
1 x Ghoul Troop (20 Figures)

giving you any of -

(Two Warhosts)

40 Skeletons
40 Revenants
20 Ghouls
2 Balefires + Crew

(Two Alt Warhosts)

40 Skeletons
40 Revenants
40 Ghouls

(one of each)

40 Skeletons
40 Revenants
30 Ghouls
1 Balefires + Crew

You lose the Zombies and Corpse Cart, but get a huge amount of figures more.

The Omens of Death kit has 20 Skeletons and a Catapult (31+ from GW), whilst the Soultakers has 20 Revenants and 10 Ghouls (GW = 66.50)

giving you either -

60 Skeletons & 3 Balefires (3xOoD)  (GW = 93 plus 3 catapults)

60 Revenants & 30 Ghouls (3xST) (GW = 199.50   Shocked )

40 Skeletons, Balefire, 20 Revenants, 10 Ghouls (2xOoD, 1xST)  (GW = 128.50 + 2 catapults)

20 Skeletons, Balefire, 40 Revenants, 20 Ghouls (1xOoD, 2xST) (GW = 164 + catapult)


One final thing, if you were going to get the 3 Soul Taker detatchments from GW, at an astronomical 199.50, you'd be as well adding 50p to that and buying the Host of Dol Eragos army set at 200, containing - (GW price)

10 Wraiths  (72)
20 Revenant Cavalry  (158)
1 x Plastic Resin Wraiths (5 Figures) I suspect this may be a typo, but thats another 36...)
1 x Metal Revenant King (8.20)
2 Necromancer (16.40)
1 x Metal Undead Standard Bearer (8.20)
5 Vampire Knights - (61.50)
40 Skeletons (62)
40 Revenants (102)
40 Ghouls (62)
60 Zombies (61.50)
2 x Plastic Balefire Catapult with Crew

So, 200 from Mantic, or the 647.80 not including the Balefires from GW...
