I read an article in Whitedwarf 332 (UK). The issue in question centred around the release of the current army book.
One of the managers from a store in Slateford UK, was discussing his O&G army, and he stated that one model could be set up to gain a potential 25 attacks. The set up was as quoted.
"You mount an Orc War Boss on an Orc Boar Chariot, and you add an extra crewman, arm him with Basha's Bloodaxe and Imbad's Iron Gnashas."
1. I though the bloodaxe is only available to Orc's on foot?
2. Can someone break down how the potential 25 attacks’ can be achieved?
Any orc Big Boss = 3 attacks (frenzy added later)
+ Is it Ugluk?s axe (I forget the name, it's mid way down the first column, +D6 "frenzied" attacks.)
Boots of kicking. (+1 atack)
= 10 attacks. Gotta be on foot. (axe reqirement)
OR there's a weapon thad adds +1 str and +1 attack per enemy character within 12" - you could get 25+ attacks that way, but that's a stupid answer.
Or, You get a Ironback boar, (D3 Impact hits), if the boar had frenzy that's 2 more standard attacks, Savage orc war boss (3 +1 frenzy), boots of kicking (+1 attack) and the basic magic weapon of +1 attack = 11 hits.
There's one that does +1 str and +1 attack per rank, but i've never bothered (I think it's 100 points or something unrealistic)
but i cannot see how you can get 25 attacks. I just can't.
you could try to kill 25 with a boss on a chariot by making them flee.
Trying the chariot best attacks:
3x boars = 3 attacks, Impact hit (scythed wheels) = D6+1
Crewman... 2 attacks?? I forget. Savage orc boss (4) boots of kicking (+1) magic poker of +1 attack (+1)
= 18 attacks
1x cannon shot and you're going to sulk though.
P.S. Blue shirts can be wrong. In the last week i've had one tell me you have to roll to activate bound spells, and another state empty transports (40k troop choice) score.

best would be boar chariot (4 boars + 7 impacts + 4 crew) with Savage Orc Warboss (5 base +1 Boots, +3 Pigstikka) he has all these it makes...24 attacks. best i can think of.
I thought it was his unit. I had idea of a big unit of non-fast-cavalry wolf riders plus hero using it.
How did i read that soo wrong?!
Ok, going back to the guy on chariot... It would have 2 boars and 2 crew. I know if a rider is mounted then the mount gets frenzy too... Would this get an extra 4 attacks from the chariot then, to make a total of 24.
Frenzy does not carry over to mounts.
