Rat Ogors are the most successful breed of the war beasts Clans Moulder produce in their depraved spawning pits. These monsters are known for their immense ferocity, but they lack any sort of rational reasoning or — in other words — are extremely stupid. Rat Ogors are one of the major export products of Clans Moulder.[1b][3a]

Due to their immense strength and their relatively low own willpower, Rat Ogors make great bodyguards. A very famous example is Boneripper which belongs to Grey Seer Thanquol. Clans Moulder also cater to special customer requests regarding improvements of the Rat Ogors they sell.[1a]

Origin

Naturally scrawny creatures, skaven prefer not to get involved in open fight with larger foes like Mega-Gargants or raging Chaos abominations. To compensate for the lack of brute power, Master Moulders found a simple solution: they created huge muscular mutants, corrupted amalgamations of ogors and skaven.

These Rat Ogors are stitched, melded and sometimes even vat grown through a combination of blasphemous dark magic, weird alchemy and crude cryptosurgery. Large amounts of warpstone balms make possible such horrible creation process. In the end Moulder clans get berserk monstrosities that can become a part of their swarms or be sold off to other skaven clans. [1b][3a][4a]

Combat

A Rat Ogor.

When driven into battle by Moulder Packmasters, Rat Ogors rage through enemy lines with ease, leaving only a bloody mush behind. By using their razor-sharp fangs and blade-like talons — and often real enough blades sewed into their flesh — Rat Ogors are a horrifying sight to behold. [1b][1c][3a][4a]

Some of the Rat Ogors are even crudely augmented with warpfire weapons making them not only a threat in melee but enabling to rain death on their enemies from the distance too. When being sufficiently motivated by the Moulder swarms driving them, they are effective shock troops and devastating tools of destruction for any general controlling them. [1b][1c][3a][4a]

In melee Rat Ogors fight with their Tearing Claws, Blades and Fangs. In range combat some of them use Warpfire Guns. [4a]
