History

House of the Hammer by Thomas Rouillar

They lived in Gondolin and their lord was Rog. They were much recruited by Noldoli that escaped from Melko's mines, so they deeply hated him and his Balrogs. They were great smiths and craftsmen, and revered Aulë more than any other Ainu. In battle they carried great maces like hammers, and heavy shields, for they had strong arms. The device of this people was the Stricken Anvil, and a hammer that smites sparks about it; this was set upon their shields, for red gold and black iron was their delight.[1]:174

During the Fall of Gondolin they slew a number of the fell beasts, being the first of Elves and Men alike to slay a balrog. All of them perished in that battle, when a large force of Balrogs, Orcs and Fire-drakes was unleashed upon them.[1]
