Urk Grund, or “Orc Hammer” in the tongue of men, is over five centuries old. Inscribed with powerful magic runes, Urk Grund has kept watch over the mountain pass leading to Karak Hirn for the last two hundred years. Constructed in I.C. 2000 during the reign of King Mendol Garilsson, this stone thrower has destroyed countless enemies. Named for its performance at the battle of the Twisted Crags, Engineer Skalf Longpipe managed to land a stone directly on Warboss Gorak Blackclaw, turning the huge orc into a gruesome smear, and routing his army. Urk Grund is now under the command of Skalfs’ son, Master Engineer Flakki. He, along with Borri Brokkisson, have assumed leadership of a small force of miners and artillery bound for Grung Byrn with the hope of clearing a goblin infestation in the mines.
I was hoping to finish master engineer Flakki who accompanies the stone thrower, but instead here is a work in progress shot of him. I will complete him by the end of the weekend, as I told my friend John that I would paint his front rank of Empire Great Swords as a birthday gift and I need to get started on them.
