Clanrats wielding slings

Clanrats are the common warriors of the Skaven clans, forming the bulk of any Skaven army.

Mainly due to cowardice and lack of discipline, lone Clanrats are not formidable opponents except when they are attacking a weakened or crippled enemy, preferably from the shadows. Banded together in large numbers, however, they are ferocious warriors, attacking without hesitation even against obviously superior enemies.

The Clanrats do their part to ensure the Skaven hierarchy is maintained, keeping down the class below them (namely the Skavenslaves), while profusely humbling themselves before those of the ranks above them.
