The Skavenslaves are one of the Enemies in Vermintide.
The lowest of the low in the Skaven hierarchy, Skavenslaves perform the most menial and/or dangerous tasks, and constantly face the threat of being devoured by their kin. In battle, they are deployed for meat grinder tactics, swarming the enemy in sheer numbers, and therefore lack armour and decent weapons. The Skavenslaves will always attack in great numbers, either through a coordinated attack signaled by a battle horn, or through an ambush. If they manage to surround you, fight with righteous fury and pray to Sigmar you'll live.
