Strength in Numbers is an innate ability on most Skaven units.

Skaven are craven by nature but take courage when in packs of their own kind, where they move slower but enjoy the safety of numbers

The ability is available to every infantry unit, melee and ranged units. Entities like characters, Monsters/monstrous infantry, and artillery do not have it.

This ability works in parallel with Scurry Away!. When a Skaven unit has high health they have higher Leadership and defensive stats, but move slower. When their Leadership and health are low, they gain a 24% speed boost.

Amusingly, this functions similarly to the Martial Prowess of the High Elves in terms of the melee defence boost as long as above 50% hitpoints.
