Welcome to Librarium Online!
So I decided to start fantasy and am assembling my first army box. Looking at the Chariot entry it says Crew2 and an 'extra' can be purchased for Xpts. I cannot figure out how one gets a third orc on this thing! Is the 'extra' crewman actually the second orc?
Unfortunately the extra crewman would have to be a third. GW doesnt seem to like to design chariots with enough room for extra crew, (as can be seen on the gobbo chariot as well), so if you want to put the extra crewman on you are going to have to get creative, maybe putting one on the crossbar or hanging off an edge or something. I would recommend doing this as five points for an extra str 4 attack on the charge would be definitely be worth it, but it may be a little difficult.
yes it is annoying
a groovy trick my friend is doing is getting the sitting (on boar) legs on the standard orc command sprue, and having an orc straddle the beam between the chariot and the boars. it looks quite natural aka orky
and you would be insane not to take a third games wise.
The boar chariot model is superb... but cramped!
The best solution I've seen has come from a gentleman I game with here in Western MA - grab some signpost bits, a length of chain, some glue and an orc body with a screaming head. Put all these together and you've got yourself a third orc 'skiing' behind the chariot! Just innovative enough to work, just quirky enough to be orcish.
I saw one a couple of years ago with Orcs riding the Boars.
It wasn't the best looking model in the world but I would recommend getting spare boar boyz (if there is such a thing).

The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.
I am building a savage orc character on a chariot and there is only actually room for the boss model on the back. For the driver I am either going to have him straddling the beam or I was going to have him actually standing upright on the yolk across the back of the 2 boars. Would like orcy as the second the chariot hits a unit it would catapult him into the enemy :party:
Ihad initially thought of having the driver riding a boar but it is very tricky with where the yolk goes across the boars backs.
