I was thinking of introducing a house special rule for all flying formations (monsters and bats), to do justice to the vertical dimension the flying creatures can take advantage of - a fact that's currently ignored by the Rules.

Something like (but it's only the first idea that came to my mind): each time a non-flying formations successfuly charges, the movement begins but it stops 1" away from the flying target; then the charging formation rolls a die: if it a 3+ is scored, then the charge movement is completed and fight occurs; otherwise it ends there.

What do you think? Do you have other suggestions?

The way flying works in the rules is to represent a situation by which a flying model lands each time it stops moving it lands and thus can be charged, otherwise the movement would be much more than just 12".

True. But no flying beast stays grounded when threatened. WotR beasts should be allowed at least to try escaping a charge - not speaking of Mumak's stomping!

Well, maybe if you increase the points value of all flying models. Or find some other way to balance it.

Yes, many things would change with such a special rule, thus the pricing as well.
But game mechanics is the first matter.
