The Clans Skryre are rightly renowned for their ingenuity even if it often borders on madness, despite the fact that all Skaven are born cunning.[1]

They have created great and terrible machines of war in their vast factory burrows and insane warren-laboratories. They have also given skaven society fast and extremely unreliable transportation and communications systems.[1]

Frequently these devices are subject to catastrophic malfunction, especially on the battlefield but they can also turn the tide of a battle or even a war. The provision of such devices to the other clans has made Skryre very rich enabling them to invest in ever more outlandish and powerful devices.[1]

History

Age of Myth

The first skaven emerge into the Mortal Realms, and the first Great Clans are created, one of which is Skryre. It, like all the other Great Clans, claims it has created Blight City. [4c]

Age of Chaos

Arch-Warlock Warpskreech invades the Scabrous Sprawl in the Realm of Ghyran, using vast city sized war machines that can drain the life energy from the land itself. This is mainly in response to the huge success of Clans Pestilen's growing power in that realm. [4c]

As the great civl war rages in Blight City and even inside the Masterburrow, Arch-WarlockSnitterkrit and five other Lords of Decay are reduced to a pool of rot by Skreech Verminking who declares the war concluded and that all Skaven should focus on other enemies. [4c]

Age of Sigmar

The great parasite engines of Warpskreech are attacked by the Knights Excelsior and the conflict grows further in the Sprawl. [4c]

From the laboratory burrows of Clan Shyvik emerge the fleet of Warlock-Admiral Steelklaw, based on salvaged Kharadron Overlords airships - a bizarre concoction of warpfire barges, klawbombers, drigibles and lightning ships. Steelklaw names his host of aircraft as the Much-great Sky-kill Air Armada and they go onto score a number of victories over his enemies. [4c]

At the behest of Grey Seer Kritch, Clan Shokryk create voltvore engines to try and capture the souls of Stormcast Eternals - the attmept to use them on the Celestial Vindicators is a total disaster but experiments continue. [4c]

The Idoneth Deepkin enclave of Nautilar is invaded and plundered by a huge fleet of Skryre submarines and a number of Isharann are taken captive. [4c]

As the power of Clans Pestilens and Calns Skryre continue to grow, the two rivals begin a second great civil war in Blight City and beyond.[4c]

Organisation

A Skryre clan is headed by a Arch-Warlock who commands the dubious loyalty of the Warlock Engineers who head Enginecovens - these take many forms but the most common are: [1]
