This article is for the Skaven Skyre clans of the Mortal Realms. For the Great Clan from the World-That-Was see: Clan Skryre.

The Clans Skryre are rightly renowned for their ingenuity even if it often borders on madness, despite the fact that all Skaven are born cunning.[1]

They have created great and terrible machines of war in their vast factory burrows and insane warren-laboratories. They have also given skaven society fast and extremely unreliable transportation and communications systems.[1]

Frequently these devices are subject to catastrophic malfunction, especially on the battlefield but they can also turn the tide of a battle or even a war. The provision of such devices to the other clans has made Skryre very rich enabling them to invest in ever more outlandish and powerful devices.[1]


A Skryre clan is headed by a Arch-Warlock who commands the dubious loyalty of the Warlock Engineers who head Enginecovens - these take many forms but the most common are: [1]
