Animator Necromancer?

Thinking about creating a new 4e Shadow Leader / Controller class that specialises in creating and summoning undead servants. At this moment in time,  I am thinking of going down a more 3.5 route,  so that the added creatures would have their own initiative's and actions,  which may worry some. However,  in my (not inconsiderable ;p )  experience "adds"  can speed rather than slow combat as they give the group extra firepower,  which defeats foes more quickly.

I do appreciate however that others may not agree with me,  and so may hate the idea. Each to their own I guess.

Anyway,  I'll post the class as I create it,  and would appreciate all feedback,  good and bad... Though helpful only (pretty please).
