I wish there was more info about undead units.

From the comments of @brennon from the Beasts of War it looks like there are no zombies in the undead list or (depending on interpretation of bellow qouted text) at least there are no zombies as basic troops:
''Skeletons, Ghouls and Revenants – so you’ve got your standard click-clack skeletons, flesh-eating ghouls and then Revenants who are more like Draugr or the Men Of Dunharrow from LotR – a little more intelligent and not tied to the whims of a wizard.

There’s nothing to stop you using zombies to represent the standard elements of your army though.''

Well, that sucks, I was planning on making a zombie horde using my Zombicide Black Plague and green horde models as the core .

With Oatmark's release policy zombies will probably get their own expansion book.

I'm not really sure how Revnants are different visually from zombies so go for it.

Well, Oathmark draws more from pre-film Tolkien than Warhammer so it's maybe not so odd. Besides, depending on what the ghouls are armed with, zombies might be perfectly decent stand-ins.

He's no slow, braindead thing though, but still seemingly quite capable of using weaponry as he presumably did in life. Hence more of a draugr than a traditional zombie. (Although what exactly constitutes a zombie differs between depictions of course.)

Feels a bit odd if the more recently dead are armed in the same bronze age gear as the skellieboys though, if the rest of the setting is supposed to be further advanced than that. Makes for a cohesive army look I suppose, but still. I think I'd rather focus either on centuries-old legions of skeletons, or the more recently dead draugr, with ghouls chasing after their recently mobile snacks. Any art for the ghouls out there that anyone is aware of?

You could make two or three units from bases and Renedra gravestones and call them skeletons that just haven’t got up yet.

I can't remember of zombies in Lotr universe that is based on Norrean mythology. And Oathmark in based on Lotr universe. Zombies belong to different cultures so I am not surprised they are not present. Honestly I do not miss them!

I do not like the look of the Revenant. Would prefer more modern armor/weapons. I would also like ''traditional'' zombies there. Well, at least skellies are awesome and hopefully cavalry means skellies not revenant.

Personally, I like my zombies in kevlar with a loaded AR-15. But I guess that one is OK.

According to this interview below there may be a flying dragon in plastic:

Not sure how the Oathmark book's going to explain the no zombies thing. Apparently everything is raised from the ground. I guess the necromancer has to check there's no meat on them bones first.

Maybe like so:

"Dead people is dead people is dead people. No mind undeads are all more or less the same"

I don't know, zombies are not exactly old, as folklore goes, ans many many cultures seem to have managed without them. As far as I remember, didn't they say as much already, that you could use zombies and skeletons more or less at will?

Miniatures wise, I assume it is a combination of sprue count, setting assumptions and aesthetics reasons.

As much as I'd like that, while looking at the current wingless dragon I would prefer them to keep to there real strengths. Plastic infantry kits.

Hopefully if they do release a plastic dragon it's a corker

Though saying that I do hope the chariot kit for the undead comes out sharpish.

It could be explained as recent corpses being unable to be raised as the spirit is still too closely connected to the body or something.
Only when enough time has passed can a body be reanimated, and by that time the flesh has rotted away.

No idea if they plan to adress it as all, or how. But that would be one way of doing it

This seems like a suboptimal use of limited tooling capacity in a world where Archon makes 8 different HIPS dragons and Reaper Bones exists.

Very much agreed about there being a lot of options for dragons already

Just because other companies make something does not mean that we cannot have more variety. There were already skellies kits out there so by that logic Northstar should not make new ones. Also not everyone would buy from Archon/Prodos.

Northstar said they are making ogres so maybe a bigger fellow is planned too?

Plastic ogres that aren't a literal embodiment of digestion jokes would be pretty damn sweet too.

I'm with Lord Blackfang on this one.

HIPS from small companies should be used for infantry and cavalry in my opinion. Characters and monsters should be in a different medium.

Hey I'm all for plastic monsters, just not ones that are going to have major competition. Like, make Oathmark all about manticores and make a plastic modular manticore with bits for each faction. Probably a better seller than adding one new dragon to a market full of them.
