Skaven

The diabolical schemes of the skaven are a blight on the Mortal Realms. These devious ratmen are utterly convinced of their superiority over all sentient beings. Through the use of deadly contagions, arcane technology, hideous monsters and sheer weight of numbers, they may yet achieve their grand plans of ultimate domination.
