A Verminlord Corruptor leading Pestilens Skaven.

Verminlords are the Daemons of the Great Horned Rat, towering icons of ruin able to call upon fell energies and manipulate the weak-willed.[1]

There are many types of Verminlord, many which specialise in controlling a lineage of Skaven Clans.


Verminlord Corruptors are huge powerful warriors that only exist to despoil and corrupt. They are pure pestilence given form, capable of tearing most enemies apart even before their plagues spells take hold. They hold absolute power over the Clans Pestilens. They wield Plaguereaper Sickles, that infect infect opponents with even the slightest nick. They have a mane of long hair and a skull head with broken horns.[2]


Verminlord Warbringers are armed with a doom glaive and punch-dagger and wear a spiked helmet.[2]


Verminlord Warpseers are armed with a doom glaive and scry-orb.[2]


Verminlord Deceivers are armed with a doomstar, in the shape of the Clan Eshin rune, and a warpstiletto. They wear a mask and hood to hide their features.[6]


Warpgnaw Verminlords are the secretive pathfinders and guides of the skaven, wandering and leading the ratmen through the network of Gnawholes and dimensional passages, sometimes even creating them with dark magic, to fulfil their agendas. They claim that they were the ones who granted the Skaven the ability to create gnawholes and nobody dares to challenge them and are hated and envied by their daemonic peerks. As they travel through these paths so frequently their bodies become saturated with reality-breaking enegies, making their outline a blur through fractures possibilities giving their movements a stilted subtly and disturbing unreal with the world around them, an effect sometimes called as the Cloak of Splintered Unreality.[3][7]

These half-insane abominations lead the skaven through their paths to plunder the realms. They wield a reality-shearing Gnaw-Glaive capable of creating new paths to the realms and can use their prehensile tail to lash and snare their foes. Warpfangs can also hide in a cloak of possibilities, confounding the strikes of it's enemies with detritus of forgotten futures. Their sinewy body are covered in carved skaven runes and their heads have massive horns and sneering maws. They are wizards capable of casting Arcane Bolt, Mystic Shield and Aether-Burrow and Splinter-screech, a spell that conjures an atonal shriek that rises in pitch until the fabric of reality shivers and cracks often slaying their foes.[3][7]
