Necromancer, why use him when i can have vampires!
Bat swarms, fell bats do the same job for less
Spirit hosts, why buy them when i can make them with a spell
Blood Knights, great but just TOO expensive
Black Knights, why use them when i have blood knights
Cairn Wraiths, i could get 20 skeletons for the same price!
Dire wolves, not cost effective
So I was wondering which units in the book are you LEAST likely to use either because you feel the stink or theyre just TOO expensive?
Also that cairn wraith choice should read (I can get 20 skeletons for the price of 3)....i cant go back to edit it...

Easiest poll ever. Bat Swarms. Hands down.
I've never seem a more pointless unit. Other than their ability to fly, but not a full 20", or screen other uits, they are pointless.
We've got plenty of unbreakable units, and their points are better spent elsewhere.
I'd rather have 3 fell bats for about the price of 2 swarms. Fell Bats fly farther, also skirmish, and screen just as well.
Bat Swarms do have one advantage, though, and that's their unit size. At US 3 each, you can have a US 9 unit for just under 100 points, 12 wounds, lots of attacks. Fell bats can't match that.
If there was an option for a ((leased used unit)) I would take the high road and not go with that unit? lol
Yeah, bat swarms. Most useless unit ever.
My vote goes to Bat Swarms as I have never used them, in fact they are the only unit I have never used. Even with their point reduction and raising possibilities there is still much more in the list I'd rather take. Who knows one day I might.
BEN DIESEL FTW!!!
If their cost were halved, I might consider using Bat Swarms. The thing that makes them useless to me is that they're simply too slow... they have to compete with the other fast, mobile entries in the list... Fell Bats, Wolves, BKs... but they really don't have any advantages over these other choices.

The thing is, what would make the bat swarms better would be stepping in on fellbats' turf. We really only need one or the other. Personally I like the image of a swarm of bats better than a few giant ones.
