Skaven Weaponry

The Skaven arsenal is immense, filled with many unique weapons and instruments of death. Not all of these are weapons that are forged of steel and iron. Some are magical powers and sorceries, mastered by the rat kin’s warlocks and wizards. Others are items of magical origin, either created by Skaven smiths or stolen from enemies in times of battle or through covert intrigue.[1a]

The craftsmanship of Skaven arms and armour is routinely shoddy and unsophisticated, especially given the massive demands placed on the Under-Empire's forges. The items produced in these smithies are manufactured quickly in order to meet the requirements of the teeming multitudes of Clanrat warriors infesting the Skaven warrens.[1a]
