    I was just reading the skaven codex for no reason really but has anyone put any thought to just how many skaven there are? Just a thought that popped into my head (a rare occurence i assure you)

    there are billions of skaven, their tunnels stretch all the way from the Empire to Cathay. they really are an enormous threat it's just lucky for everyone else that they are weedy gits.

    Carcaroth, would you compare their numbers to say goblins? I count hobgoblins in that. I would guess there are probably more skaven.

    theres definately an enormous amount of gobbos but they are kept under control by the bigger greenskins. the skaven are lucky they dont have anyone bigger than them picking on them.

    If the Skaven have similar breeding patterns to the real life rat then there must be millions upon millions of them, possibly with numbers curtailed a bit by lack of space etc. Goblin women (do they exist?) would probably give birth to 1 or 2 goblin children at a time instead of a rodent litter of 7 or 8. But then again i have no idea about the logistics of goblin/skaven pregnancy (it isnt covered in the armies books)

    i think it's cool, they dont actually grow from fungus they grow like fungus theres a big section in the ork 40k codex about it. it's actually staying closer to Tolkiens view of orks rather than D&d's
