Thorgrim Grudgebearer"There will be no rest, no peace, until every page of the Dammaz Kron is accounted for!"
Thorgrim Grudgebearer is the current High King of the Dwarfs. He is a throwback to the High Kings of old - eager for new conquests, mighty in battle, and a merciless enemy. Yet upon his worn brow there also sits a great wisdom, and he is able to uphold the ancient traditions as well as to accept (if not embrace) needed changes, such as alliances and new technology. Thorgrim is forever brooding upon how to return his people to their former glory. As the ultimate ruler of the Dwarfs, the Great Book of Grudges is entrusted into his keeping. It is Thorgrim's avowed wish to avenge every single entry contained in that voluminous tome - an impossible task if he should live a thousand lifetimes. Yet such is his resolve that he has already helped to rejuvenate the whole of the Karaz Ankor. Tales of his deeds, and the long list of grudges already struck out, fill his grim warriors with a feeling that the Dwarfs have long done without: hope. Borne upon the Throne of Power and brandishing the Axe of Grimnir, Thorgrim is at the forefront of what the Dwarfs hope will be a great conquering - a new age of retribution!

- Deadly Onslaught
Such is the power and ferocity of the champion, that those who stand in his way will falter against the warrior's impact.
There are those who wish nothing more than to be at the heart of battle, seeking foes to vanquish.
- Stand Your Ground!
On the battlefield, the craven's path is an easy one, but for those champions that choose to stand? Fortune will surely favour them and their troops.
- High King
The High King is the embodiment of the Karaz Ankor. Should he be wounded or even fall then the Dwarfs will rise in a vengeful rage!
This unit provides a Lord's aura and an encouraging unit will receive the larger of the two bonuses.
Strengths & Weaknesses
Armoured units can block damage from any source apart from Armour-Piercing damage.
