Chapter Story Edit
Over rocky terrain, jagged peaks and deep caverns; from Stonemine Tower to Ironmane Post, the battle rages between Dwarf and Greenskin for control of these ancient lands. The assaults from the Greenskins are relentless, but the Dwarfs will never willingly hand control of their lands to their sworn enemies.
Situated on a high mountaintop, Grudgekeg's Guard Warcamp is where the Dwarfs muster their troops for battle. Nearly inaccessible to enemies, this war camp provides a perfect safe haven for the weary Dwarf fighters and the forces of Order.
Screeb's Stunty Killin' Camp is the rally point for the Greenskin troops. Cutting right into Dwarf lands, the camp was erected among the mountains of northwest Mount Bloodhorn, making travel more difficult for the Dwarfs and their allies.
Grudgekeg's Guard Warcamp Edit

A loud bang reverberated throughout the canyon. That would be yet another cannon that the damnable greenskins had gotten to, thought Moranir Grudgekeg bitterly. The stupid beasts didn't even know what to do with what they had. Each time they captured the gun battery, one of the more enterprising Goblins would invariably try to use the cannon and blow himself up. The death of the goblin was, of course, no great loss. But the destruction of yet another centuries-old weapon would be a profound loss for the Dwarfs in Mount Bloodhorn.
The Oathbearers hadn't Engineers to spare to operate the battery, and the artillery was well out of range of the battle going on at the Gates of Ekrund. The only reason for protecting the cannon was to keep the greenskins from getting at them.
This is why the old Dwarfs preferred sending the newer recruits from the Oathbearers out to keep an eye on the old weapons, occasionally. If they got to kill some greenskins while they did so, all the better for them. Any experience the beardlings got here would be beneficial as they worked their way toward retaking Karak Eight Peaks from the hated greenskins.
Moranir shouted at a group of Oathbearer recruits, "What are you waiting for? Get out there before the chuffin' beasties blow up another one."
Battlefield Objectives Edit
Cannon Battery Edit
- Primary Article: Cannon Battery
The Dwarfs have set up a small cannon battery to cover some of the areas from which greenskins are likely to enter Ekrund. From atop this small ridge, the Dwarfs also have a vantage point for viewing the battle going on atop the Gates of Ekrund.
The greenskins have noted the presence of this cannon battery and have begun sending their troops to take the hill and neutralize the threat of the cannons.
Ironmane Outpost Edit
- Primary Article: Ironmane Outpost
The Ironmane Clan once controlled this outpost, using it to watch over the approaches to Ekrund in the direction of Mount Bloodhorn. Now a crumbling shell, the outpost keep is an important and defensible objective to secure, which either side can exploit for a military advantage.
Stonemine Tower Edit
- Primary Article: Stonemine Tower
The Stonemine Tower overlooks the surrounding valley, and is thus useful as a military objective. The Dwarfs will stop at nothing to control it, and the greenskins find it useful for heaving things at passing Dwarfs.
The Lookout Edit
- Primary Article: The Lookout
Taking and holding the high ground is instrumental to victory in many battles. As the greenskins and Dwarfs fight for Ekrund, this wisdom has once again proven true. The top of a rocky promontory not far from the Gates of Ekrund has been violently contested since the Dwarfs began their campaign to regain control of their ancestral home.
The makeshift lookout tower erected atop the rocks has changed hands several times and has rapidly been stained with the blood of greenskin and Dwarf alike.
