Urgat's Armory v0.3 [Blood in the Badlands Siege options]
Snikch will go after the person who framed him... so all we need to do is to find out who is still alive at the end of SOC but is now dead.
I dont think anyone falls into that category as the fluff essentially rewound after SoC/with onset of 8th, to the point where SoC hasn't happened yet?
Snikch doesn't even exist. He has been Shadowblade in disquise all this time. Shadowblade got tired of hanging around the stinking rats and took a day off to kill Valten, just for fun. He then threw the filthy warpstone blade on the ground and went home to be in time for Malekith's 5000th birthday party.......
It's not that hard guys...Not everything is shrouded in mystery....
Ha that would be a great plot twist that shadow blade and snitch was one and the same. Especially if they leave it hanging if he realy is snitch or really is shadowblade.
oh crap where has that been hiding the whole time

I think I see a zipper on the skaven's back. Obviously it is a halfling, disguised as the deathmaster. And after snikch killed the halfling, he took the credit for the kill anyways.
The other option is that the Skaven did do it, then planted the obvious evidence because *obviously* they wouldn't point at themselves, so it must not be the Skaven, or so it appears.
Or in shorthand:
Skaven did it.
Skaven planted obvious evidence that they did it.
Evidence is so obvious, that it obscures the fact that they did do it.

Death Korps, High Elves, random Dark Eldar, more to come (eventually)! Now includes Dark Angels!
I like what people can find in (very) bad-written fluff ...

Valten was a promising child.
Ironically he was struck by a twin-tailed comet at birth so nothing happened.
Archaon turned his map upside down and invaded north instead.
Mannfred overslept and failed to raise any dead guys
Grimgor was occupied discussing poetry and gardening aesthetics with GReasus Goldtooth.
Nothing happened really. The whole story was part of tax evasion scheme by the Church of Sigmar, ably performed by Volkmar who wasnt killed or resurrected by ddaemons ofc
"Parrying lasers with my sword since 7th edition"
- Luminarks, Hurricanums, Robot-horses and skaven laser cannons have made me a better person. A man can only hate so much and these awful units just seem able to soak it all
1) The fluff isn't well thought out, and the writer's idea of intrigue was: "Karl Franz shifted his weight awkwardly. How could this have happened? How could anything have slipped past such a heavily armed patrol? The only clues were ominous at best: a mysterious, skaven-looking symbol spray-painted on the wall and a poisoned blade with a signed confession by someone named "Deathmaster S. of the Skaven clan Eshin". The evidence seemed to point no-where."
2) The fluff is quite well thought out, and the writer's idea of intrigue was: "Luthor Huss shifted his weight awkwardly. How could this have happened? How could anything have slipped past such a heavily armed patrol? The clues left behind were obvious: a skaven-looking symbol spray-painted on the wall and a poisoned blade with a signed confession by "Deathmaster S. of the Skaven clan Eshin". Clearly whoever had done this wanted a guilty party to be assumed. From the corner of his eye, and only for a fleeting moment, Luther thought he saw a smile cross the face of Karl Franz has he surveyed the room..."
The (Rat)Men of (Under)Talabheim! - A Painting Log
Or option 3: the background was written as (2) but has been interpreted by subsequent writers and developed along the lines of (1).
Huss is the one that needed to be convinced the Skaven killed his messiah.
The general population has been told that Valten has left and will return when the Empire most needs him again (much like Sigmar).
Remember that time that Greenskins captured the Dwarf king? Of course you don't, because Sakven did it.
Remember that time that Gorbad Ironclaw razed Nuln? Of course you don't, because Skaven did it.
