Master Necromancer is a Vampire Counts melee infantry unit in Total War: Warhammer. 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.
Master Necromancer is the cheapest lord in vampire roster around 1000 gold worth with spell and abilities. Most players will pick another lord for their powerful combat attributes but don't underestimate if some players brought this lord. This lord like a cheap version of mannfred or kemmler, spam magic wind and use it for spamming zombie summoning or healing magic
Bringing him with the hellsteed mount allows for great mobility across battlefield. He can also be placed on a corpse cart for a variety of auras.
The notable benefit over the necromancer hero is the magical animus ability allowing him to briefly restore the leadership of a unit. Bring this lord if you want a cheap spellcaster while the rest of your army does the fighting.
