Few of the Ironclads were talkative fellows, preferring to watch and listen while more garrulous dwarfs filled the silence with speech or song.
The deeds of these famed Ironbreakers had always spoken more loudly than their tongues, and this was doubly true at the Chasm of Echoes. It had been the Ironclads who had first formed up at Gelt's side, the runes on their armour glowing with golden light. There they stood, waiting wordlessly for the battle to come, seemingly unconcerned whether any of their fellows would join their shield wall.[1a]
