Ruglud Bonechewer

Ruglud leading his Orcs

Ruglud Bonechewer is a powerful and now wealthy Orc mercenary who leads Ruglud's Armoured Orcs, fighting mainly for gold and food. [1a]


Ruglud was Warlord of the Crooked Eye Tribe who he propelled to many victories, rampaging through the Grey Mountains and the World's Edge Mountains attacking both the towns of the Empire and Dwarf strongholds. However he was defeated by a powerful Chaos Dwarf force, whose deadly volleys slaughtered hundreds of his tribe and easily weathered the inaccurate arrows shot against them. [1a]

The tribe turned on him, although a small band of orcs stayed with him as he fled south until they stumbled on a ruined mountain stronghold where the smallest of the band - Maggot fell into a tunnel leading inside. Although the other Orcs were afraid of entering, Ruglad grabbed Maggot and headed inside where they discovered the remains of a brutal battle between Dwarfs and Chaos Dwarfs. [1a]

Inspired by the recent battle, he decided that using the fallen enemies armour and crossbows would be a great step forward and so Ruglud's Armoured Orcs were born. [1a]

Since then he has led his mercenary band for many years having fought in the Badlands, the Border Princes and in the mountain ranges throughout the Empire and even lords of the Empire have been rumoured to hire him. [1a]


If ya can't beat em, join 'em.
