Night Runners (Slings)Appearing as if from the earth itself, peppering opponents with relentless, deadly sling-fire.
Night Runners are the most common Clan Eshin warriors, although they are still secretive like all their mysterious clan. Trained to move at speed, Night Runners strike quickly to prepare the way for Skaven armies. Small furtive units sneak from the shadows to seize key terrain features, while larger blocks of Night Runners scurry ahead of the Skaven lines to harass and slow down the foe. Night Runners fight with blades in each hand, although many employ slings to rain death on enemy war machines or poorly armoured elites. A typical ruse is to slink off to the army's flanks, hoping to lure pursuit into a hastily prepared ambush.

- Scurry Away!
"He who runs away lives to fight another day!" - so the foul, craven adage goes.
- Strength in Numbers
Skaven are craven by nature but take courage when in packs of their own kind, where they move slower but enjoy the safety of numbers.
- Hide (forest)
This unit can hide in forests until enemy units get too close.
Strengths & Weaknesses
- Decent Melee Combatant
Despite being primarily a missile unit or spellcaster, this unit can also hold its own ground when fighting in melee.
- Vanguard Deployment
This unit can deploy in an expanded deployment area, allowing it to start the battle within striking distance of the enemy - or somewhere unexpected.
This highly dexterous unit dodges blades and missiles with ease; its luck is known to run out quickly when facing magical weapons, however.
