Grey Seer (Ruin) (Screaming Bell)The air erupts with contagion and ruin, choking the enemy's lungs and savaging their bodies.
The Grey Seers are also known as the Chosen of the Great Horned One, prophets of the Lord of the Great Below, and the voice of the Horned Rat. They are powerful sorcerers, capable of channelling eldritch energies in destructive ways, levelling enemy armies with lightning, or summoning ravening swarms of rats. Some Grey Seers ride atop the nightmarish Screaming Bell to unleash untold ruination. More important than their ability to dominate a battle, however, is their role as emissaries for the Council of Thirteen, a position which often grants them the top-rank. Having the backing of a Grey Seer means a clan is in ascendancy, and will gain supremacy in dealings with others. They may barter with the upper hand and a Skaven with an advantage will press it mercilessly. It is always best to exploit such an advantage while it lasts, for it will only be a matter of time before the Seers call with their own demands. In Skaven society it is well known that absolutely nothing comes without a steep reciprocal price.

- Unholy Clamour
As the clanging of the Bell rises alarmingly, the Skaven's squeaking escalates in unison; they know for whom it tolls.
The tolling sound of the Screaming Bell opens fissures in the ground, allowing white-hot flame to erupt.
- Wall of Unholy Sound
The deafening peals toll throughout the land, driving the verminous Skaven to ever-greater heights of ferocity.
- Scurry Away!
"He who runs away lives to fight another day!" - so the foul, craven adage goes.
