Giant Bats!

   Giant bats are vicious, evil beasts that hunger for blood! They have two special rules, "Fly" and "Blinding swarm", both useful for a Moria force full with small Goblin warriors. I have two such swarms, which are a nice touch to my army. I painted them based on the photos I found on the internet, brown bodies and dark-grey wings. I added some dwarfish gear to their bases to make them somehow attractive and to avoid the "twin" effect. To achieve the later, I assigned the rear side of one miniature to be its front by placing the two-handed axe there, while the other one has the shield on its front. Here are the photos:

  1. Great job Sir, love the colour palette which is so much more imaginative than the usual black you often see.

  2. Nice job, cute critters ;-) - I do like their maneuverability in the game, combined with their bat swarm effect in combat, and the number of hits they can take before they are 'dispersed'. A very useful unit to take.

    1. Thank you, Scott! They are very useful indeed. I saw they helped you to win your "High Ground" game! :)

  3. Truly good job on those. The idea of assigning a front side to avoid the twin effect works totally. I didn't realize it was the same model at first.
    Somehow the colours you have used, remind me of what I have seen on this manufacturer website:
    I am confident you'll love their minis, if you don't know them already ;-)

  4. Thank you, Ni.Tchirititch. I did not know them, to tell you the truth. You are right, they have very nice miniatures.
