I recently stumbled across this geeklist: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/46858/item/1134147#ite....
It inspired me to make one of my own regarding my favourite race*.

If a game has the option of playing as the undead I tend to find myself drawn to them and it's gone on to such an extent that I can't paint any miniature to a decent degree unless it's rotten or bony. zombie

So I've created a list of games where the option exists to play as/with the Undead. Feel free to add to the list as I'm bound to miss some. Any kind of undead is fine (zombies/vampires/ghost/ghouls/wraiths/skeletons etc) as long as a player is controlling them.

There are two existing geeklists I found to do with the undead but one focuses on zombies and the other any fantasy game that features them.

*For lack of a better word. Not sure the Undead can be described as a race.

Back when I first started playing Blood Bowl there was but one undead team. This has now split into several (Undead, Necromantic, Vampire and Khemri if memory serves).

Heroscape offers Zombies and Shades which are clearly undead. There are a few other creatures which are pretty skeletal and so might also be undead.

Never played the game but I'd imagine the Forsaken are playable as they're one of the main races in the MMO.
