Flayerkin are creatures created under the combined influence of the Realm of Chaos and the Skaven of Clan Moulder. They are partially human, drawn from Northman stock before being subject to the process that transforms them into Flayerkin. Metal masks cover their faces, hooks and iron claws have been grafted onto their arms in place of hands, and heavy chains hang from a plate fused to their backs.
In the armies of Chaos their purpose is to scale the walls of castles and fortified cities during sieges, hauling their chains up for other besiegers to climb. Even a dead Flayerkin hanging from a wall can be used as an organic siege ladder for the other members of his warband. Additionally, they can wield their sharp hooks with devastating power in combat.

Tome Text Edit
Flayerkin are twisted Chaos Marauders who have replaced their hands with wickedly shard hooks and claws. These claws serve a dual purpose: First, they are extremely effective weapons as they are an extension of the Marauder's arms. Second, they allow the Flayerkin to gain purchase on nearly any vertical surface.
