Gruntas are a species of porcine predators creatures that originally came from Ghur, but race in large stampedes through all realms except Azyr.[1][4]


They have matted fur, angry button eyes and razor-sharp tusks. [4]


There 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][5]


Gruntas are used by the Ironjawz warclans as mounts for Orruk Gore-Gruntas, to ride into battle. Those not hacked apart by their plate-clad riders are devoured by these mounts.[1][4]


In addition, Gruntas have such an extreme metabolism that they practically devour almost everything in their path. Their digestive system is robust enough to do this. They also devour fallen warriors and bite their way through heavy metal armor. But metals are one of the materials that they cannot digest effectively. Ironjawz have learned to use the precipitated raw metal for their armor and weapons, which they call Pig-iron.[3][4][5]
