Once a huge and mighty orc clan, the Hellpuncher orcs were decimated in The Battle of Shadowgate, giving their lives to defend the town. They now number a mere 50 warriors, and are led by Warchief Huh’lekk and advised by High Seer Gol’gresh.
In ancient times, the Hellpuncher orcs got their name when they held back wave after wave of demonic incursion from the Elemental Chaos. They are renowned slayers of all things demonic and fear nothing in battle. Unlike typical orcs, the Hellpunchers revere the members of their tribe that specialize in things other than combat, especially their shamans, who are looked to for guidance and direction from all, including the chieftain.
