an orcish miner

The Garmogi were the Miner or Delver class among the Goblins. Although considered lesser-Orcs or Snagas, the Goblin miners were skilled craftsmen experienced with explosives and mining technologies. They were valued and readily employed as sappers, tunnellers and pioneers by dark generals as the Witch-King.
