Unit Description

A boar-mounted Savage Orc Big ‘Un has a powerful charge and a really unpleasant line in melee skills.

Historical Description

Although Savage Orc Boar Boyz wear no armour save an occasional hidebound shield, they are remarkably hard to bring down. These nearly-bare brutes can ride through clouds of arrows and emerge unscathed (although perhaps much angrier). Even in close combat, Savage Orc Boar Boyz can withstand all but the most determined of blows. This is due to their sturdy hides, the thick-muscled, protective mounds of their smelly boar mounts, and their own mystical warpaint. While tough as old boots, Savage Orc Boar Boyz are better known for the prodigious damage they cause when they charge. They crash into enemy units with an unparalleled ferocity - boar tusks, crude axes, or flint-tipped spears that all jab, thrust and stab in a frenetic assault. In their recklessness some Savage Orcs even fight with a weapon in each hand, using their legs alone to clutch onto their mounts. These Savage Orcs are a whirling maelstrom of destruction, hacking and flailing with wild abandon - and Savage Orc Big 'Uns on war boars are more fearsome still!



Some warriors care not for their own personal safety and so work themselves into a whirlwind of destruction and mindless violence!


Hide (forest)

This unit can hide in forests until enemy units get too close.

Strengths & Weaknesses


The damage of armour-piercing weapons mostly ignores the armour of the target, making them the ideal choice against heavily-armoured enemies. They are often heavier and attack at a slower rate though, making them less efficient against poorly-armoured targets.

Bigger & 'Arder

The heaviest, strongest and meanest of Orcs, Big 'Uns are eager to prove it against enemies of all sizes.


The colourful tattoos on their bare skin grant Savage Orcs Physical Resistance, which reduces the damage from any non-magical attack.
