The Hardest Word is a short story by David Guymer describing Hamilcar Bear-Eater defending the stronghold known as the Seven Words as Skaven threaten to attack. It is the second story in the Hamilcar series.
Hamilcar Bear-Eater, greatest hero (in his own words) of Sigmar’s armies, is the latest in a long line of castellans to hold the critical yet precarious stronghold of the Seven Words. With skaven threatening, Hamilcar can conceive only one sure way to hold the Seven Words – to challenge the entire horde to single combat.
