WarlordTheir titles acquired by taking them from others, their savagery against the foe is just as unremitting.
To hold the title of Warlord is to rule. A Skaven does not gradually earn respect or position, and there certainly is no giving in the brutal society of the ratmen. Leadership must be savagely taken. To gain power, a Warlord must seize control, proving himself a top fighter and a devious adversary. Such a coup either ends in failure and certain death at the hands of the existing ruler, or the new leader supplants the current Warlord, often eating him in the process. Challenges follow no format but often take the form of personal combat, treacherous back-stabbing, or elaborate political schemes. The more underhanded the deed, the better, for that is what puts the fear (and what almost passes for respect) into the Skaven masses.

- Verminous Valour
There is a sense in which the Skaven's natural cowardice can appear to be the very pinnacle of honourable conduct.
- Scurry Away!
"He who runs away lives to fight another day!" - so the foul, craven adage goes.
- Deadly Onslaught
Such is the power and ferocity of the champion, that those who stand in his way will falter against the warrior's impact.
To rally the troops and bring them back to the fore takes strong leadership skills and an iron will.
This unit provides a Lord's aura and an encouraging unit will receive the larger of the two bonuses.
- Hide (forest)
This unit can hide in forests until enemy units get too close.
