Gavin Guile would be a nice addition to the magic users I think.
And Tyrion Lannister would not only be a good strategist, but would also keep everyone's spirits up.
On a side note, I now want to see Ninefingers and The Hound fight. Someone whose really good at fight scenes should write that.
I always wanted to see the Hound fight his brother. Now if you want a killing machine for your band of warriors, how about Gregor Clegane, the Mountain that Rides?

I did think about Gregor Clegane, He no doubt would be right at home. I think it's just because I have gone right off Game of Thrones. I have read all the books and can't deny they are brilliant (A feast for Crows was a struggle mind you) and have watched the first two seasons and they just lack the pace that gets me excited. Like now I don't really care who gets the throne as long as someone does!

Now that we have the army of the 'goodies', should we define the 'baddies'?
Or are we just fighting zombies?

Good point! Though my team is primarily made up of rather nasty folk! I shall think on this....

Do they have to be fantasy characters or is scifi allowed as well?

I shall try to mirror my first team with "bad" guys.

I stuck to fantasy to replicate my first team but go sci fi by all means!

Team Leader Sauron (Go big or go home) Tolkien

Frontline Soldiers
Ser Gaston and de Vrailly (the red knight)
The Ra'zac. (Eragon)
Black Dow. (First Law/The Heroes) Abercrombie
Jamie Lannister. (two hands, before everyone liked him) RR Martin

Wild Card
Bayaz (First law) Abercrombie

Berzerkers
Gregor Clegane  ;) (RR Martin)
The Feared (The First Law) Abercrombie

Attack Dog
Flame Demon (The Painted Man) Peter V Brett

Magic User
Thorn (The Red Knight)

Secret weapon
shruikan = Big ass dragon! (eragon)

That should do it ;D a decent reflection of my first team.

Alright, here goes, full unusual scifi.

Team Leader John Hammond (Michael Crichton) because why kill zombies if you can profit off them in a theme park.
Front Line Soldiers/cannon fodder: Starship Trooper characters, Juan Rico and others(starship troopers), robots (I, robot)
Strategist: Ender wiggin (ender's game), aided by supercomputer HAL (2001, a space oddyssey)
Escape plan: The time machine (the time machine)
Wild Card: Towel (Hitchhiker's guide)
Heavy armory: tripods (war of the worlds) and sand wurms(dune)

What makes the older of the Clegane boys fit right in is that these days after being FrankenGregored he's an actual zombie. Has anyone suggested Conan? He's the complete package, leader and frontline warrior all in one.

Have a read of Peter Clines Ex series, that's basically the zombocalypse with super heroes and I think Marvel also did a limited series about zombie superheroes.

Maybe a super villain has turned the super hero's into zombies and the only way to stop them is to change the zombie diet of brains to spam cooked by the great goat god
According to some,* heroic deaths are admirable things

If we're going to find an army to take on a zombie horde we can't possibly do it without Rick Grimes, he's got so much experience.

This I like. Spam as the answer to zombie fever. A whole warehouse full of spam, the last one left, as the macguffin at the end of the quest. Spam released into the atmosphere saves the planet, but gives intelligence to goats. The astronauts who conducted the atmospheric salting mission get caught in a time warp and thrown into a future where goats are in charge and humans are their voiceless slaves. Planet of the Goats.

Yes. This.
