Cave Bats

Cave Bats are a Wood Elves Wild Beasts unit unique to the Wargrove of Woe.

Description[edit | edit source]

With a body as long as a grown man, Fell Bats are a fearsome sight. They are darker than midnight and silent as death, even when in full flight. In fact, the only noises that a Fell Bat makes on the hunt are horrible gobbling slurps when it sinks its distended mouth into living flesh. In truth, a Fell Bat bears as much resemblance to an ordinary bat as a maddened lion does to a domestic cat. Those who have encountered them, and lived, tell how they hunt with unerring accuracy, swooping down to knock knights from their saddles or pick off lone warriors unawares.

Attributes[edit | edit source]

  • Forest Stalker: The Elves of Athel Loren gain bonuses to melee defence and accuracy while fighting within the forest.
  • Vanguard Deployment: This unit can deploy in an expanded deployment area, allowing it to start the battle within striking distance of the enemy - or somewhere unexpected.
  • Expendable: Witnessing friendly expendable units rout does not reduce other unit's leadership unless they are themselves expendable.
  • Weak Against Armour: This unit's attack can hardly punch through armour and is thus wasted on heavily armoured enemies.

Functionally, the unit is identical to Fell Bats aside from not being undead and thus being able to rout. Other than that they gain vanguard deployment, a combat bonus in forests, and the expendable trait.
