Skaven

The Old World. On the surface, it is a vast and fertile place, but a shadow hangs over the world, cast by the dark, corrupting hand of Chaos.

Anyone use the Ratfolk much? What do you like about them?


I always found them fascinating, but I don't think the played a big part in any campaign I played in.

Well the only game I ran had them - I killed my younger brother with a level four lightening bolt (powerful). If I ever ran it again I'd likely use them.

The Warhammer Wiki article for Skaven suggests they are an underground race (from the Under-Empire).

It also suggests that most humans don't think they exist and that people have even been burned at the stake for claiming they exist! Is that some sort of retcon to hand wave this race out of existence (at the wargame table)?

Skaven still exist in the latest version of the Warhammer wargame called «The Age of Sigmar». They are part of the Grand Alliance of Chaos under the name Clan Verminus.
