I have put together a warband, mainly Reaper models, for use in Saga Age of Magic, Frostgrave, Oathmark etc.
The winged vampires were quite simple to paint. Primed with Israeli grey from Vallejo, then drybrushed with Rakarth flesh and Pallid Wych flesh. Then a wash of carroburg crimson and a highlight with Pallid Wych Flesh.
The armoured vampires are mainly crimson knights from Reaper with a couple of head swaps but mostly straight and un-kitbashed. They were primed with Vallejo red brown then I used contrast flesh tearers red and a bunch of washes for the armour.
I enjoyed painting these and the next step is to add some more winged vampires/succubi, and some mounted vampire knights.
It's the perfect time of year to show off this little collection of spooky minis!
Giant Bats 44040
These little guys are adorable. They're pretty simple, and it's hard to pick out details in their faces, but I think they're fantastic little minis. Though their size clearly makes them giant bats, I can definitely see myself using them as "normal-sized" bats for Wildshape or Familiar purposes. I specifically used the Little Brown Bat as my coloration reference.

Harrowgate Shrine 77723
Next up is a bit of scatter terrain. This is one of the two models in the Harrowgate Shrines set.
What could it be? An ancient omen? The gravestone for a horrific creature? Or perhaps the beast itself is encased in stone!
It's not the most exciting of models, but I thought it fit nicely with this little set. I probably should have based it, but I like basing scatter pieces on flat bases and didn't have one the right size for this. Might base it in the future.

And rounding out this set we have the big baddie: the werebat!
I really like how dynamic this guy is. Really get the sense he's about to lunge at you, or take off to the skies. I painted him up like the giant bats. Don't love the paintjob, but it works. I really like how his base turned out though. The model comes on a roughly 1" circular base, but he's pretty top heavy. I didn't want to give him a 2" base, but I'm really starting to enjoy basing these oversized models on 40mm rounds. Especially with that tapering rim, they fit nicely without looking out-of-scale compared to other "medium" sized creatures.

So what's the story? What would you use these minis for?
By Rick Anderson
I keep a blog of painted miniatures with their model number - awhile back I had painted the werebat from Kickstarter#3 model #169. Is that intended to be 77448 which appears to be missing in the current inventory?

This is a speed painted repaint of an old Mage knight figure; I think it was the 'feral bloodsucker'. It looked like a werebat to me, so that's what he became. I did the figure in perhaps an hour and a half (not including basing, lotta glue and different materials there). I just painted right over the original paint job (there wasn't really much there to begin with). I did this guy while I was waiting for some green stuff to dry on a different project.
Please let me know what you think.
