A preying Gloomhaunt.[1]

Gloomhaunts are flying hunters, with a small body between two large, leathery wings. Their round maws are in the centre of their chests and filled with needle teeth. They prefer to hang from the rafters of the largest underhive caverns until an unfortunate victim walks beneath. Then they spread their leathery wings, swooping down on their prey. Though gloomhaunts are not large creatures, they strike at their victim’s heads and wrap their wings around the prey’s skull with a vice–like grip. Once the prey is helpless, the gloomhaunt begins to feed. If the victim’s companions wish to kill the beast, any shot or blade that pierces the gloomhaunt’s flesh is likely to harm the person underneath.[1]
