Is this the only race missing a leader token?

Why would you have a leader token for the Necromancer? The gameplay is so different that the leader token doesn't make any sense for the Necromancer.

Leaders are bought when you choose the race, but as the Necromancer you never chooses the race, and thus it makes no sense.

Yes. All other Small World races have leaders except for those unique to Underground. Necromancer is not missing one, it simply does not require one because it does not function in the same manner as all the other races.

IMO, the argument given here that no Leader token is necessary for the Necromancer "because he is played differently" is poorly thought out. In fact, a token for the Ghosts would be a HUGE asset for the Necromancer, who normally has to pay quite a price for each Ghost token he summons to the board. The Leader would cost him only $1 (or $0 under the revised 2nd edition rules)!!! While I don't remember offhand if there is a token for the Ghosts in the 2nd edition Leaders set, you could as always use one of the generic "crown" leader tokens for the Ghosts if your table allows it.

Correction: The 1st edition of Leaders did not include tokens for races unique to Underground (since Underground had not been published yet). The 2nd edition (made in conjunction with the "Small World 2" Kickstarter) does include tokens for both Small World AND Underground.

I forgot Leaders 2.0 came with Underground tokens. I don't have Underground so I must have stored the spare tokens elsewhere. I just checked and Necromancer ghosts are not included in 2.0. I thought Necromancer doesn't earn or score points. Isn't the whole point that they win by defeating everybody else or something. Clearly it's been a while since I used the expansion last. I'm still waiting for it to be added to the iPad app (fingers crossed!).
