Here's my first attempt - the ubiquitous Flying (well, levitating) Monkeys!

Flying Monkeys
:STR 2
:DEF 2

Damage
Flying Monkey 1 ( ) Flying Monkey 2 ( )

Advanced Scout, Deadly Rush, Levitate, Pack Tactics, Solo

All I need now is a Supreme named Mister Burns
Image

EDIT: A little explanation might be good, too. I gave them Advanced Scout and Solo to allow them to act ahead, or away from the Supremes. I went for Levitation over Flight (2) for two reasons - they're not Support Minions, and being able to move over intervening models and terrain is enough. Pack Tactics allows them to gang up on isolated weaker models with easy.

For something a little more fun, you could swap out Advanced Scout or Pack Tactics for Hurl.

DOUBLE EDIT: I just realised I had one too many monkeys.

Based off of this mini that I love:

Image

Rabid Bat Swarm (level 2 Bruiser BOOM minion)

:STR 4
:DEF 4
Wounds 6

Levitate (0) not as good as full flight, but enough to swarm around models and terrain in their way
Surprise Stab (1) attacking from the shadows, right out of a horror movie
Solo (1) does not need to be commanded duirectly as much as "unleashed on the masses"
Blend 2 (1) bats are sneaky
Survival (1) it is made up of lots of bats and is difficult to disperse
Under Stength (-2) only one swarm per card

This is a sneaky nasty swarm of evil bats that will be much more difficult to get off the table than your average thug or minion.

Gotta be kidding me. You come up with the weirdest thing and Invader comes up with a miniature for it?

I'm waiting and dreading first zombie in PC :lol:

Nice, Morf. Please tell me you got their phone numbers!

And the Foot and BATS are excellent choices.
