A Gundabad Orc

The Orcs of the Mountain race were a breed of greater Orcs or Hobgoblins.Being descendants of the Gongs of the first age they stood a bit taller and larger than the mostly smaller slave-orcs of Mordor and Isengard or the Orcs of the Deeps. They were usually a stout and swarthy skinned race descending from the fighting-Orcs of Angband.


Mountain Orcs are said to populate the Ered Engrin and Hill Lands of the Utter North in Urd and Luindor.


In fanfiction the greater Orcs of the Mountain Race are sometimes called Naz-Hai.
