Reaper Bones Black 44040: Giant Bats (D&D Monster Manual 68)

Reaper Bones Black 44040: Giant Bats

Quick and easy win today – though it still took awhile longer than it should have to get them done, even after I started them – but here’s a trio of Giant Bats from Reaper’s Bones Black line of models, though I got these from whichever Kickstarter they dropped in. I know including them in the D&D series is kinda borderline, but Giant Bats are very much a D&D thing, and we all know that Reaper’s biggest thing is off-brand D&D models, so…

Reaper Bones Black 44040: Giant Bats

These are destined to maybe used in a D&D boardgame if needed, but otherwise will work as swarm models for Marouda’s Undead Kings of War army, and possibly as somethingorother in Vampire Counts …I mean “Soulblight Gravelords” for AoS.

    • Yeah, the camera really captured the sheen on the second photo, but they’re a little more like the first pic overall – though to be fair, those ones are more shaded due to the lighting angles. 🙂

  1. Nice work on these! They’re Bones Black, the darker, harder plastic? I saw them last year at my old hobby store in CA but they were the older white stuff, and the wings were badly bent so I didn’t bother getting them. If Reaper’s redone them in the new plastic I might give them a shot. Also, how do you keep churning out minis at such a rate?

  2. Very nice paint job on these. As others said, good contrast, while being suitably dark. I honestly don’t like the sculpts, but you really made them shine. And the sculpts are much better than the old GW giant bats.

  3. I love a good bat sculpt and good on Marouda for picking the undead army in Kings of War. I really gravitate towards those in the traditional fantasy wargames too. I agree that these are versatile minis and I like how these are on gravestones. That makes them seem perfectly aligned with vampires!
