A formation of Ironguts.

An Irongut is an ogre, not necessarily any tougher or stronger than his fellow ogres, he is set apart by the simple fact that the Tyrant has chosen him as a personal bodyguard. This gives them entrenched belief at their superiority, amplified by the respect given to them by the common Bulls.1,2

As the Tyrant's bodyguard, Ironguts have the best wargear,fighting with the large two-handed clubs, giant scimitars, or young tree trunks reinforced with stone. They can also afford heavy armour, which generally consists of large chunks of enemy armour hammered together. In a rare display of hygiene,some of them will even wash it out! The Gutlords and other powerful individuals might have custom-made armour, though, as fits someone in their position.1,3

As their name suggests, Ironguts are capable of ingesting almost anything, the only Ogres that can beat them at that are the shamanistic Butchers and Slaughtermasters. The leaders of Ironguts must also excel at this, for otherwise they wouldn't be known as Gutlords.1,2
