Dreadnaught - Lord

placeholder

In battle, the Dwarfen Lord gets lost in the melee with hammer in hand, strong as a dozen Dwarfen soldiers.

Even for a Black Orc, Grimgor's thirst for war was exceptional. If a single day went by without a battle, Grimgor was known to start camp-decimating arguments, his one good eye blazing with eagerness to find fault and start a good scrap. Two days without a battle and Grimgor would smite anything he could reach, save (perhaps) his fellow Black Orcs. No one knows for sure what would happen if three days without a battle ever occurred, but even scarred veterans tremble just to think of it. This unquenchable thirst for battle is a sign that marks out a Warboss for leadership, a sign that the Orc is favoured by Gork (or Mork). In a hulking Black Orc with unmatched fighting skills and ferocity it has marked out Grimgor for greatness; the prophet and harbinger of Gork (or Mork).

(Lord)
The leaders of a Dwarf throng are its Lord and Thanes. These are the most powerful fighters in the army, fell-handed warriors equipped with the finest arms and armour of the Clan's weapon hoard. As a rule, Dwarf Lords and Thanes are a grim sort, for they are leaders of a dour people. Upon their broad shoulders is carried the weight of untold debt - the inherited grudges of a long-suffering and unforgiving race. It is their lot to avenge all wrongdoing to their Clan, Hold or race, not just in the present, but also for all time. Failure to redress an injury from antiquity is particularly galling, an act of disrespect to the much-revered ancestors. While Dwarfs are notably an infantry force, there are a few exceptions among their leaders; some Lords are carried into battle by Shieldbearers - stout warriors who serve their liege by hefting a shield as a fighting platform. This is common amongst Dwarfs of the southern Holds and has been continued elsewhere, notable by King Alrik Ranulfsson of Karak Hirn. In other Clans, especially northern ones, Lords and Thanes prefer to fight atop Oath Stones, rocks upon which runes are struck - listing out the Clan's honour, or perhaps the Lord's lineage or deeds. The stone is a symbol of their homeland, a piece of their Dwarfhold made manifest.
