Did Fell Bats get buffed?

I'm asking because when I had my Hero w/ Dragon and 2 hawk riders face up against 3 fell bats.....I'm going to be honest...my hawk riders got messed up hard....and my dragon, despite having large dmg potential, took way longer to take down those bats....

i mean....for their price they are really killing my WE anti-vampire build when facing VC....

    I think eagle riders are just garbage as a whole, and that the dragon causes splash damage, so it may not be good against other flying creatures

    which dosen't seem to make sense as Bats only do 18 non-ap dmg and have an MA of only 14.....and for only 350 gold...

    Hawks should atleast have been decent in those 1v1 engagements...

    In the Hawks stats, they do around MELEE 45 dmg w/ AP, with a 24 MA and have higher HP pool...

    Bats have 48 melee defence which makes them quite tanky. Hawks/eagles are trash tier in MP anyways.

    I live in France.... I like animes, mangas, greek/egyptian and roman culture (antiquity + mythology). I usually play Total Warhammer or Battlefleet Gothic and sometimes Vermintide.
    I play almost exclusively MP though 1 or 2 campaigns from time to time can't hurt ;).

    i tired the WE flyers and found them to be garbage, the eagle especially, for some reason if you put a hero on an eagle like a spellsinger, they do really cool animations that disrupt infantry really well but thats about it, only time i use them is when a lookout in campaign is attacked then i just have my army in the forest and use the flyers as bait to pull their army right by the forest and charge out to hit their weak archers or artillery units, works a charm, the riders are better in melee for tying up enemy archers thats about it, would never take them in an army

    Eagle Riders are handy to disrupt artillery that's left undefended, and the occasional swoop down on an unsuspecting armoured unit from behind as they have armour-piercing, but that's about all.

    My issue with the WE in general is they have a lot of pants units and a few just good ones. Can't think of a single unit they have that I would say "Yes, this is one of the best units of it's type in the game". Even the skirmishers aren't especially impressive.
