- "I wun't see him nah if'n I was you.' A dribble of green ectoplasm accompanied the Shaman's words, clear evidence that the power of the Waaagh! was coursing through his body."
Instinctively Borgut slammed his massive forehead into the Shaman's face, pitching him backwards to land flat on his back. "But you ain't me,' he muttered. "Zoggin' shamans..."
- —Borgut Facebeater, preparing for a meeting with Grimgor Ironhide.
It's not often that Grimgor Ironhide is impressed by another warrior's prowess. It is even more unusual when he doesn't just perish such an individual on the spot.
Borgut Facebeater is one of those rare exceptions. He first came to Grimgor's attention when the mighty Warlord was based at Karak Ungor, waging continual war on the Skaven of Clan Moulder. Grimgor had gotten bored of Skaven slaying and was casting his blood-greedy eyes elsewhere but each day word reached him of an Orc Boss who was emulating his own feats in the Hell Pit. Curious he made one more descent just to see. He found Borgut slamming his hammer-like forehead into the largest and mightiest of Rat Ogres while harvesting ranks of Skaven with his Choppa. The main thing that pleased Grimgor was the way he was so thoroughly enjoying it. When Grimgor left Karak Ungor to go beyond the Worlds Edge Mountains, Borgut was at his side - the Green Slaughterer had found a kindred spirit.
For himself, Borgut is a simple creature, brutally direct, utterly uncompromising and subject to wild intoxication in the heat of battle. He had grown in the horde of Grimgor and to him the Slaughterer was the living manifestation of Gork, the epitome of all he, himself could hope to be. His loyalty is absolute, to be the right hand of Grimgor is to be the right hand of Gork. Borgut has fought alongside Grimgor through all his long wars and battles, one of the few survivors of the battle against the forces of Vardek Crom after the cowardly Goblin's retreat. As a result, he and his lads have picked up a few tricks along the way.

Borgut fought alongside Grimgor throughout the End Times, fighting in the destruction of Nippon, Cathay and culminating in the destruction of the Chaos Dwarf Empire. The Facebeater and Grimgor climbed the steps of Zharr-Naggrund where they personally toppled the idol of Hashut.
During this time, Borgut had started to become too confident despite his former loyalty. Indeed, though he was Grimgor's most trusted lieutenant, that was not saying much for a Black Orc. This culminated in the Facebeater challenging Grimgor for leadership and, for all his might, he was defeated by the Orc Warboss.
In the latter days of the End Times, Grimgor, in an unusual moment of sentimentality, would go on to state that he missed Borgut's company.
