Unit Description

Developed by Clan Skryre, these poisoned-wind globes contain an even more virulent strain of deadly gas.

Historical Description

Death globes are glass or crystal orbs filled with deadly Warpstone gas, like poisoned wind globes but far more potent. When thrown, the sphere shatters, releasing billowing clouds so lethal that mere skin contact can cause severe pain or even death. Breathing the vapours causes lungs to spontaneously fill with bubbling pus - a horrible and nearly instantaneous death. For this reason, Bombardiers wear all manner of elaborate masks, goggles and cumbersome rebreathing apparatus in an effort to protect themselves against accidental gassing. Armour offers no protection against poisoned gas, but this does not stop the Bombardiers from wearing arcane body armour underneath their robes.


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


Anti-infantry units have an advantage against targets that are smaller than a horse. This advantage can be a damage bonus against small targets, superior weight used to smash through lighter enemies, or an explosive attack from range that affects a large area.

Armour-Piercing Missiles

The damage of armour-piercing weapons mostly ignores the armour of the target, making them the ideal choice against heavily-armoured enemies. They are often heavier and attack at a slower rate though, making them less efficient against poorly-armoured targets.


Armoured units can block damage from any source apart from Armour-Piercing damage.

Death Globes

Invented by Clan Skryre, these globes release a magical gas that is more stable than the Warpstone gas used in Poisoned Wind Globes. Hanging in the air longer and thus spreading further, it is especially lethal against large groups of targets.
