As most of you know,boar boys are way overpriced,i would make them out of normal orcs.Unfortunately i don't have any boars,do you know if GW sells boars separately?
wellll they sell them seperate yes... they are on the GW site in the category 'Warhammer Bitz' then 'mounts'.
decide for yourself if you want to pay the price :p

well £16 and some spare orks,seems less intimadating then £70! then all the sticky hands trying to glue it all,Cheers.
Ebay is the way to go for stuff you think is overpriced.
In two separate lots i bought 12 boar boyz (that had been mistreated) inc command and a mounted hero for a total of £17, stripped em and repainted, spent £1.75 on some shields and now have a whopping unit for 1/4 of the price.
Does involve patience though!
Plus don't know if anyone else does this but second hand boars rarely come with tails but skeletons sprue's come with a pair of weird curly horns that are perfect for a more robust tail. Thicker at the base but textured with fur. I took all of my boars tails off and replaced them. Saves a lot of fiddling with those annoying origionals!

I have and scrounged alot of boar rider lower torsos off the command sprue - There is one per sprue - And Got a pack of boars off the gw site. I'd also got the shaman on boar, which comes with 2 extra tails (i think it was the shaman, they were metal), then i got hold of 3x chariots for less than buying boars off the gw site (I think they gave them away in a old WFB starter box)
Anyway, I got a nice unit out of it, you just have to shop about - there are boars on 40k snakebite boar boyz - they go for peanuts on ebay, and old chariots are also good. One thing, like normal orcs they have to be made and posed as to not interfere with one another.
