well, I had 9 spare metal marauders and made 3 spirit hosts some time ago, you might remember them.
it seems that plastic gw minis are the best choice - you will make quite cheap and consistent unit out of 1 plastic box, no matter if you choose flagellants or other models. I'd personally go with Empire or Bretonnia army for this purpose, I can hardly imagine dwarven/elven ghosts, not to mention skaven or chaos warriors :) my marauders all had similar weapons, but a mix of different weaponry would be more interesting - crossbows, swords, spears... also, a mounted model places among foot models would make for a nice centerpiece of such a unit.
Of course you might use a combination of minis from 2 armies and say that these are ghosts summoned at some old battlefield :)

I can't remember any company making a wide selection of ghosts, apart from Reaper. But, buying many metal models will make your unit much less affordable :)
you could perhaps avoid these costs by choosing something like this, as each would make for a complete base

I used the Lotro Army of dead to make my ghosts for my VC army:

Thank you for ideas!
@Hellspawn
I think LotR minis are a bit smaller, is there a size difference or is it unnoticeable?

They're a little smaller yeah, but honestly, next to my skellies I can't really notice it. Can make a picture next to a skelly if you want to check it

I got back to the tale. On the workbench are ghouls, old von Carsteins, ghoul lord and a necromancer that will be a filler for the ghouls.
