Skaven – Plagueclaw

This warscroll does not meet the selection criteria (see Settings tab).


Rotten wood creaks as the throwing arm of the Plagueclaw is cranked slowly back. Foul plague-slop is loaded into the weapon’s claw before being launched in a high arc to rain infectious filth down upon the enemy lines.

A Plagueclaw is manned by skaven armed with a Plagueclaw Catapult and Rusty Knives.

BATTALIONS: This warscroll can be used in the following warscroll battalions:
 • Foulrain Congregation

Barrage of Disease: A Plagueclaw hurls great globs of diseased filth at its targets.
The target of an attack made with a Plagueclaw Catapult does not have to be visible to the attacking model. In addition, if the target unit has 10 or more models, add 1 to hit rolls for attacks made with a Plagueclaw Catapult and increase the Damage characteristic to 2D6.

Hideous Death: Those splashed by this weapon’s semi-congealed liquid ammunition die horribly, their skin sloughing off in clumps and their bodies erupting in glistening sores.
Add 2 to battleshock rolls for units targeted by any friendly units with this ability during that turn.

Hit Roll
Roll a dice. If the roll equals or beats the attacking weapon’s To Hit characteristic, the attack scores a hit and you must make a wound roll. If not, the attack fails and the attack sequence ends. An unmodified hit roll of 1 always fails and an unmodified hit roll of 6 always hits. A hit roll cannot be modified by more than +1 or -1 (this is an exception to the principle that abilities take precedence over core rules).

Sometimes an ability will allow a single hit roll to score two or more hits. If this is the case, make all of the wound and save rolls for those hits at the same time.
15.1 Battleshock Tests
You must make a battleshock roll for each friendly unit that has to take a battleshock test. To make a battleshock roll, roll a dice and add the number of models in the unit that were slain in that turn to the roll. If the battleshock roll is greater than the unit’s Bravery characteristic, the battleshock test has been failed. If the test is failed, for each point by which the battleshock roll exceeds the unit’s Bravery characteristic, 1 model in that unit must flee. You decide which models flee. A model that flees is removed from play.

If a slain model is returned to its unit in the same turn that it is slain, it still counts as having been slain in that battle round for the purposes of battleshock tests.
