Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey everyone, after reading lots of army list I have concluded that lots of people use boar boys, be they savage or regular. My question is, are they really that good?
I have completed my 2250 army and it doesn't have any, and I want to get some stuff to help me with switching out against certain armies once I have play tested some, probably to replace my giant when up against shooty armies. So do they usually earn their points or are they just good for certain roles?
I used to play a group of savage orc boar boyz w/the waaagh! banner and a big boss in them so on one turn you could potentially burn your waaagh and the banner for a 14+2d6" charge - helped a lot vs shooty armies and Bretonians.
Two's to kill. Ahh, sweet sweet music.
I love using them, but I didnt like the models so I converted my own. But the suggestion made by Courtsloth is a fantastic way to use boar boyz, they can get worse when you add a battle standard and make them Big'uns and the general as they just get a fantastic combat res and just SMASH nearly all opponents! The Orcy way.
