The legendary helm of Count Mandred Skavenslayer was crafted from the skull of the Skaven warlord who fell at the Battle of the Howling Hills. Even after Mandred's assassination at the hands of the foul ratmen several decades later, it is said that a portion of his vengeful spirit lives on within the macabre helm, filling those who gaze upon its gruesome visage with fear and dread. Such is its reputation among the vile rat-spawn that the mere sight of Skavenslayer's Helm dries them to frenetic action as they battle their instinctive fear and loathing of the object in equal measure.[1a]
