A foul Flayerkin.

Flayerkin were horrific followers of the Chaos Gods, usually sent to be modified by the fell Skaven into living weapons, or choosing to do so themselves out of sheer insanity.[1]


Flayerkin are twisted Chaos Marauders who have replaced their hands with wickedly sharp hooks and claws. These claws serve a dual purpose: First, they are extremely effective weapons, as they are an extension of the Marauder's arms. Second, they allow the Flayerkin to gain purchase on nearly any vertical surface. Others were sent by Archaon to be mutated with Skaven genes by the foul ratmen of Clan Moulder giving them enhanced agility and equipping them with horridfic hell forged weapons grafted to their flesh.[1][2]
