When Ents get more "Treeish" they do get slower, as their roots or "feet" get more attached to the ground. You know how sometimes Treebeard will drift off... well, the more he spends time being slow, and gets to attached to the ground and kinda loses thought for a small while...
And Guess Who, If the units that collect meat from killing lil' beasties and it was for Dol-Guldar it would be... A!
If the units that collect meat from killing lil' beasties and it was for Lorien it would be... B!
A) Orc Hunters, Goblin Skirmishers, Retrieval Spiders, Spectral Beast-trackers
B) Galadrim Skirmishers, Hunters of the Golden Wood, Sindarin Hunting dogs, Galadriel's Huntsmen

Both the dead resing kind and the thread reviving kind.

Step 1: Only a evil dragon (In LOTR, which isn't evil?) and a very powerful Sorcerer (*Cough*... Necromancer!...*cough*) or wizard can create a Dracolich. The dragon & the spell-caster must be in agreement that the Transformation will take place.
Step 2: Once the agreement is reached, the spellcaster concocts a special beverage called the Dracolich Brew.
Step 3: The evil dragon must drink the lethal concoction.
Step 4: The Dracolich Brew poisons and kills the evil dragon, releasing its Spirit/ Soul.
Step 5: Upon the Spirit's release, it transports itself into a special container (that was chosen ahead of time) called the "Phylactery."
Step 6: The Spirit can now transport itself into the corpse of another dragon- even its old form. It can also transfer into any dead lizard-like creature.
Step 7: The final step is for the corpse to accept the Spirit. Once it has, the Dracolich Transformation is complete.
CONGRATULATIONS, YOU MADE AN UNDEAD DRAGON!

I'm not sure about Undead Dragons being lore supported, though. I'm not sure exactly why he was called the Necromancer, but perhaps that term has been twisted for RPGs and other things since the hobbit was written (it was published back in the 30s.) Not sure exactly why they called him that, and I don't know if Tolkien ever explained it, really. It was just their name for him before confirming it was Sauron.

This stuff is the best lore support for an undead faction.
Following this ideas of raising the dead around Dol Guldur, he could raise Smaug from the lake as an undead dragon... However, either he didn't have that ability, or the white council drove him out before he could, or else he chose not to. Of course, it didn't happen, but in the idea of an undead dol guldur faction which doesn't fit the story, but remains "possible" according to the lore (if the White Council didn't drive out Sauron so soon,) then an undead Smaug, risen by Sauron from the lake, would be an excellent feature.
