Strangler Zombie was US BattleCard card 26, and under the name Strangler was UK BattleCard 96. Interestingly the back of this card in the US actually was titled "Strangler" as well, thus it was inconsistent on the card itself. The name "Strangler Zombie" was always used within the text of the card, both US and UK.


The card used artwork by Iain McCaig that was originally used in Casket of Souls.


The card describes a type of creature trained within the Dark Lord's legions as an executioner, which terrorises settlements around Two League Canyon. It is a night prowler which, like the Decayer has the plague-touch. Wounds it inflicts will then infect with a rotting disease. However, this creatures preferred method of murder is via strangulation. Like all other zombie warriors, each Strangler was once human and can be repelled by calling them by their true mortal name.
