As the battle waged on, Crom saw Ironhide fight and as Ironhide did the same they both knew that they had found the worthy oponent one another hungered for so many years. They both began to do battle at such an epic scale. They battled one another for hours, niether able to kill either one. But finnally both stood in the middle while the Kurgan watched the Orcs flee, Grimgor ran and escaped.
