The Battle of Putrid Peak was fought between Warlock Engineer Klawmunkast and the Plague Priest Morbus Sanguis over the settlement of Putrid Pit and its rich Warpstone mines. [1a]

History

During the fourth century of the second Skaven civil war, Morbus Sanguis of Clan Pestilens sought to take control over the settlement and its Warpstone mines for his own research needs. As the Clan Pestilens forces entered the tunnels however, Klawmunkast who had been warned by his spies was able to unleash his latest war machine the Rat Tank on them in the battle. [1a]

Unfortunately, the tank exploded during the battle and Morbus took the settlement. [1b]

Written Sources

The battle was initially recorded by Vitmyn Squeek, a Rat-Scribe and later translated by a scholar of Nuln, Herman Gunst. [1a]

Quotes

The two sides met within a vast cavern beneath Putrid Pit, Klawmunkast's mighty war machine rumbling over the fissuered rock floor as Morbus's Plague Monks chanted the doom of all followers of Clan Skryre. To the chittering of a hundred rat-voices, the battle began.

~ translated words of Vitmyn Squeek.[1a]
