Brutes are Orruks who are the foot soldiers and the most numerous warriors of the Ironjawz. Wrapped in iron armour crudely beaten over massive green muscles, they are bigger and meaner than most other warriors of the realms. They seek out in battle the most violent and biggest enemies to batter into submission, so they can smash their foes into bloody ruins. What cannot be beaten by violence, they beat in numbers with endless waves of small-minded aggression.
Brutes prefer enemies that hide behind high walls, massive gates or in deep caves as they are unable to run away when the Ironjawz appear. Brute also dislike anything bigger than they are, be it a statue, a monster or even a tree, thus in battle they seek out the "big 'uns" and when one spots something worth clobbering a dozen more will join in. This has the unfortunate effect of mobs of Brutes piling on beast-riding lords in a heaving mountain of green muscle and bad breath until their victim vanishes from sight much to the horror of the enemy forces.
Orruk Brutes are wrapped in armour beaten over their muscles and armed with brutal weapons such as Brute Choppas, Jagged Gore-hacka and Gore-choppas. Brute Bosses can carry Boss Smasha, Boss Choppa or even Boss Klaws which allows them to grab the enemy.
Two Brutes, the one in front a Brute Boss wielding a Boss Klaw and a Brute Smasha.
