It takes a fierce Skaven to survive the underground slaughterways of the City of Pillars. To join the most elite claw-units of all Clan Mors, a Skaven has to possess extraordinary strength, agility and martial prowess. Queek Headtaker personally takes part in the selection and training of his elite Red Guard Stormvermin. He keeps ten claws of these troops, each a hundred strong, as his personal force of bodyguards. They are given the best arms, armour and feeding of all the troops under his command. In battle, the Red Guard serve dutifully well as Queek's honour guard, or as the spiked fist of his assault force.
The Red Guard
Queek must always be accompanied by his Red Guard, and may join no other unit. The Red Guard are a unit of Stormvermin with an additional +1 Strength. Queek must deploy with this unit and may not leave it. No other character may join the unit.
