A Screaming Bell.

The Screaming Bell is an unholy war machine of the Skaven created by Clan Skryre.[1]

It is an unholy altar under the protection of the Horned Rat himself. The bell is hung in a great carriage where stands its chained striker.[1] A Grey Seer will mount the Screaming Bell and preach the will of the Horned Rat to the Skaven army assembled below. The Screaming Bell is also a constant and static part of the varied accounts of Skaven history. The Bell can always be heard over the raging din of a battle and often heralds the defeat of an enemy and the victory of the Skaven.[2]

Construction

Casting one of these infernal bells is undertaken in a 13-day ritual from using warpstone laced bronze which is decorated with many cursed runes, profane inscriptions and symbols. The huge carriage is constructed frcm all mannerof moteriols, including steel, wood, scavenged masonry. [3a]

Warfare

It is usually pushed to battle by a unit of Clanrats, but if the Grey Seer is particularly favoured by the Council of Thirteen, then it may be escorted by a group of Stormvermin. Those who push the Screaming Bell not only make it mobile, but also are its defenders and will defend it to their deaths.Needs Citation
