Uncroaked units have no will of their own, and limited intelligence. Uncroaked warlords are capable of following simple orders and leading troops.
Uncroaked units decay over time, and eventually fall apart. While they last, they are still capable of gaining experience and leveling up.
An uncroaked unit may or may not retain all of the abilities it had in life, for instance, uncroaked Jaclyn and several uncroaked unipegataurs were shown in flight, and an uncroaked warlord is still capable of functioning as a warlord; however, an uncroaked caster does not retain spellcasting abilities and functions as generic uncroaked infantry.
Units can be uncroaked en masse, but the resulting creations are weaker and decay more rapidly than ones that are animated with careful individual attention.
Uncroaked infantry, led by a master-class Croakamancer is capable of dance-fight.
Stanley's limited forces have been supplemented by uncroaked infantry created by Croakamancer Wanda Firebaugh. In particular, Stanley's last living warlord (Manpower the Temporary) fell at the Battle of Warchalking, leaving him with only five (after Manpower's body was retrieved and uncroaked by Wanda) uncroaked warlords to lead his forces in the field.
Later, while Jillian Zamussels attempts to persuade Wanda to defect from Stanley, several unipegataurs and Archon Jaclyn are croaked, and then uncroaked. In addition, after a failed attempt by the Royal Crown Coalition to attack Gobwin Knob from its tunnels, at least 2870 fallen Jetstone troops, including warlords Sir Webinar and Dora, are uncroaked.

Unit types seen to be uncroaked
Effect of Arkenpliers
Wanda, having attuned to the Arkenpliers, reanimated Prince Ansom in a way that she calls "decrypting". While the appearance of uncroaked usually changes significantly (they look like zombies) reanimated Ansom has had only cosmetic changes of clothing. He retains his full level, despite Wanda being able to decrypt many (unlimited?) units per turn Erf-b1-p146.
