Gore-Gruntas charging through Seraphon ranks

Gore-Gruntas are Orruk cavalry riding the Grunta mounts of the Ironjawz warclans whose mobs and fists act as their shock troops. [1][4]

Command

Gore-Grunta Bosses

The Bosses of mobs of Gore-Gruntas can usually be distinguished by them having bigger, meaner gruntas that are covered in more and shinier armour than those of the rest of the mob. Even though this means that their gruntas are more protected than the others, most bosses do this to show that they're the ones in charge instead of thinking of safety. Gore-Grunta Bosses often become well-known among their warclan very quickly for the simple reason that they are usually the first ones to get stuck in.[4]

Combat

These plate-clad orruks cling to the back of their porcine predator mounts, hacking apart those that they can while the rest is broken apart apart by their mounts with stomping hooves and piercing tusks, which are then devoured. They are led by Gore-Grunta Bosses who are belligerent even for the Ironjawz and they ride upon the meanest Grunta's that are even feared by other Gruntas. [1][4]

Tactics

Cunning bosses have created their own vaunted Gore-grunta strategies such as the Tusks of Gork, the Hoof Puncher or the Snorting Snout Spear and endlessly argue over which is the best tactic. Other orruks may point out, at their own peril, that everything involves just getting a bunch of Gore-gruntas together and charging them into the enemy as fast as they will go. The sight of a charging grunta charge, like a tide of unstoppable grunting muscle is horrific to behold, even by the standard of the Ironjawz.[2a][2b][4]

Mounts

Their mounts are never truly tamed as the creatures are far too belligerent ever to accept a rider without a fight. When Ironjaw Warclans pass through areas inhabited by these beasts which are easily identifiable by the destruction they leave, hunters try to corner the beasts and hammer bits of iron onto the gruntas, driving the rivets in with their bare fists which act as a sign of ownership. This process also has the benefit of armouring the gruntas and slowing the beasts down just enough to make them possible to ride.[3][4]

These porcine predators attack with their natural weapons like fanged maws and hooves. These mounts are heavily armoured.[2a][2b][4]

Wargear

Ironjawz riders in addition to their heavy armour carry either Pig-iron Choppas or Jagged Gore-hackas.[2a][2b][4]
