The Gilneas Brigade, commanded by an unidentified Mountain King, was a detachment of troops within the Human Expedition that were led by Jaina Proudmoore to Kalimdor.[1]

The Gilneas Brigade was sent by Darius Crowley, a Gilnean noble and dissident.[2] Crowley's lands were split by the Greymane wall and sent the Brigade in an act of defiance against Genn before the Northgate Rebellion.

While in service to Jaina the Gilneas Brigade would form an encampment and aid in blockading the passage into the Stonetalon Peaks. Some time later the encampment would came under attack from Grom Hellscream and the Warsong Clan. In response the brigade would strike back out against the rest of the Horde. The Gilneas Brigade was ultimately destroyed when Warchief Thrall and Grom lead the Horde in destroying the encampment.[3] What survivors, if any, are assumed to have regrouped to the rest of the Human Expedition and Lady Proudmoore.
