There are all the non-mount colors that could potentially be (TAMEABLE) beasts! It'd almost be a crime not to make them tameable imo, but you never know.

Enjoy! Wings are still bugged in WMV.

The two last bats...I want them. It's so great to see they've updated the bat models! I'm looking forward to seeing them with their wings, but so far, brilliant. ^^

I'm sorry, but the last few may not be tameable beast skins; as I noticed they have saddle straps textured underneath. Maybe, possibly, they will make a version with it removed. But just a warning.

Woah! You’re right! It also says its speed and such depends on your location so could this mean that these bats may be able to…walk? I know it could just be a place holder or they may just fly low to the ground but still, the thought of a giant bat running/stalking towards you is epic.

Not sure if it means anything, but the animation window does have these new (and more) animations. They don't do anything right now though.

The last two have saddles on them?
One is more red, the other more blue?

Please, let this be the reward for the 200 mounts achievement :D

It only took us, what, four expansions to get that final taxi as a mount? :P

Though I do hope for some tameables with this model (sans armor preferably), and for their walk to be the proto-drake one.

I'd really rather it be a new faction, that way I at least know I've got a chance of getting it without buying mounts from the card game. I'm not even at 150 yet. I find the kite to be kind of a stupid reward though. That's just me personally. However I'm not sure why I'd just find it really odd to see an alliance on a bat. To my knowledge alliance never ride bats, only horde do. Perhaps updated hippogryph models for the alliance. However the red and blue models at the bottom with saddles do suggest faction affiliations. That is why at this time I'm glad Im horde cause I like the black and red MUCH more than the white bat who with his face reminds me of a baboon.(Rafiki) :lol:

Not to sound like a jerk or anything, but Alliance got new Raptor options. Maybe this is Blizzard's way of evening things out between the two factions. *Shrugs*

My undead Lock, and my Blood DK will be enjoying riding this demonic bat from hell.

It just would be nice to finally get a real cool looking mount as a reward for collecting so much other mounts. The kite was sooo disappointing (dragonhawk too)...
But yeah, I think it's more likely to be a new reputation (or raid-achievement, maybe?) mount, to be honest... But one can always dream! :)

I would be inclined to agree, but this bat has a new model. While nice, the new raptors are old models and old skins.

That's the only argument I have against it. :P
