Issue 4 of the Spike! Journal is guest-edited by Rotting Johnny and focuses on the Shambling Undead teams. Arguably the most famous of them all are the mighty Champions of Death, but the journal introduces a number of other successful teams. Issue 4 also not only includes the background, rules and rosters for the Shambling Undead teams, but also the 10 Star Players who are available for them to hire. There is also a tactics article for Shambling Undead teams as well as a number of regular in-world columns such as the ever-popular Chat with the Rat and the Mighty Blow! Comic strip.
