Garagrim Ironfist Dwarfs Storm of Chaos Adrian Smith illustration

Garagrim Ironfist, by Adrian Smith.

Garagrim Ironfist was the only son of Ungrim Ironfist, Slayer King of Karak Kadrin.[2a][3a] He became the War-mourner of the Slayer Keep.[1a][4a]

History

Under Construction

NOTE: The content in this page is still under construction, and will still be subject to change.

Prince Garagrim Ironfist became Karak Kadrin's War-mourner when he was still a beardling, taking the Slayer Oath against the wishes of both his mother Kemma Ironfist and his father Ungrim Ironfist.[4a]

[Work In Progress]

At some point before the End Times, Garagrim finally found his doom in unknown circumstances (see Canon conflict). For reasons also unknown, his father decided to keep or renew his own Slayer Oath, as he retained his title of Slayer King until his death.

As King Ungrim's only son, his death left Karak Kadrin without a direct heir — a fact not lost on the rest of the noble sons of Clan Drakebeard. The clan Thanes each sought to lead throngs to glory and thus catch the eye of their warrior king. As they are a grudge-ridden folk, even for Dwarfs, and Peak Pass is full of perils, there is no shortage of foes, presenting constant opportunities for the fiery-hearted Thanes to prove themselves.[3a]

For five generations the Slayer Kings of Karak Kadrin have laboured under their dual vows. However, the son of Ungrim Ironfist, Garagrim, devised a means by which these burdens might be lifted. After consulting with the oldest and wisest Dwarfs of the Hold, Garagrim made an important realisation. If he could fulfill the Slayer vow that would pass to him on the death of his father, then future generations would no longer have the debt upon their honour. With no kingly vows to hold him back, Garagrim embraced the life of the slayer, leaving the courtroom of his father to live amongst the hard stone halls of the Shrine of Grimnir.[1a]

Garagrim took the ancient title of War-mourner, an old rank that was once used by the High King's champions. It is the duty of the War-mourner to act in the King's stead in battle, accepting the King's honour as his own, and vice versa. As far as honour and tradition were concerned, Garagrim's Slayer vow was the same as his father's.[1a]

Now all that remained was for Garagrim to meet his death in battle against a worthy foe. With the expansion of the Realms of Chaos, all manner of twisted, mutated beasts came south from the Chaos Wastes and the Troll Country. Vicious fanged spawn, two-headed dragons, mighty Shaggoths and all other manner of monstrous creatures now roamed Kislev.[1a]

Slayers in their thousands gathered at the Shrine to Grimnir, the normally solitary warriors drawn together by the promise of a truly glorious death against the bestial hordes from the north. As they marched north to meet their destinies, Garagrim marched at their head, chanting praises to Grimnir for this fateful occasion.[1a]

As War-mourner, it was Garagrim's duty to tend to the Shrine of Grimnir, allowing him to open up the temple's store of ancient rune axes left as tribute by Slayers making a pilgrimage to Karak Kadrin.[1a]

Reaching Praag, Garagrim met his avowed doom, slaying a monstrous Chaos Giant and achieving the death in battle that his oath demanded. His father heard the news soon after being repulsed from Peak Pass by the advance of Vardek Crom and the Chaos Dwarfs, and took upon himself the Slayer Oath once again.[2a]

Wargear

Garagrim Ironfist fights with the Axes of Kadrin. Chained to Garagrim's wrists so he will never lose them, these twin axes were given to him by his father on his coming-of-age. Each is inscribed with a Grudge Rune and the Master Rune of Skalf Blackhammer. Not only can these axes be wielded in the normal sense, but they can also be whirled upon the end of their chains, much like those of the crazed Slayer Doomseekers.[1a]

Canon conflict

Garagrim's background was introduced for the first time in the Storm of Chaos worldwide campaign, but his final fate was not revealed until the release of Warhammer Armies: Dwarfs (7th Edition), in which the results of the battles of both Garagrim and his father Ungrim were officially stated. During the 8th Edition, however, the Storm of Chaos storyline was retconned to return to the previous timeline and allow for the later publication of The End Times - but Garagrim was still confirmed dead by Warhammer Armies: Dwarfs (8th Edition). This makes Garagrim's cause of death technically unknown.
