Clanrat portrait


The Clanrats make up the bulk of the Skaven army and are among the lowest ranking in the vile clan hierarchy. Slightly shorter than your average man, the Clanrats' matted fur is filthy and patched, with wounds and boils covering parts of their body. They are clothed in rags and scrap armour, carrying worn down swords, knives, maces, flails, spears and torches. The Clanrats' strength comes from their great numbers, surrounding and overwhelming their enemy by attacking from all directions. While banded together, the Clanrats bolster each other's confidence and aggressiveness, encouraged by the screaming of orders like "kill the man-things, quick-quick". Yet these warriors are cowardly at heart and lack basic discipline and determination, so if the odds turn against them, the remaining Clanrats will start to cower away or even flee the battle.


Strength In Numbers

The Clanrats are strongest in a group and love to come at you from multiple angles. If outnumbered, they will cower or even flee, so make sure to not let surround and overwhelm you, lest you end up as food for the Skaven brood.

Coming Out Of The Walls

The Clanrats are considerably more agile than your average human, and prefer to attack when they know they have the advantage. They will spring up from sewer holes or climb down walls, so keep a constant eye on your surroundings.

Creative Slaughter

You have the ability to cut off any of the Clanrats' limbs, including the tail, so let your creativity flow along with the blood of the loathsome rat-men!
