SpoOoOoky Plastic Reaper Minis Bats and Rats
I visited a hobby store for the first time in a long time and saw that Reaper Minis is now selling plastic figures. They had a big display of these 25mm (more like 28mm I'd say) Dark Heaven Bones minis. I bought a bat swarm and a pair of rat swarms. Each pack was under $3.00.
I mounted each model on a 1-inch (25 mm) metal washer (from the hardware store). This adds some weight to the bats and keeps them from falling over. The packages said that the models are ready to paint, but I primed them with black paint.
A while back I remember looking at some bats for 15mm models, but now I can't remember who made them. I think they came on a transparent post to look more like they were flying in the air. Real life bats come in all sizes, so I figured 15mm bats would work well with my 28mm figures.
P.S. Check out these witch and cat minis I painted for Halloween 2009 and ghosts from the year before.
