Welcome to Librarium Online!
I've heard rumors that the savage boar boyz will not be in the stores very soon. That could mean that they are making new models, or that they just don't sell enough.
Can anyone confirm this?
And wtf is happening with the old normal boar boyz? are they from 3rd edition or so? someone said remake??? They cost at least twice as much as the new dark elf cold one riders... which are 100 times as cool.
Yeah, I'm afraid all this is true. Savage orcs and boar boyz of all sorts don't sell enough. I had a long discussion with the guys in my local store about this and he said that because they're metal they don't sell all that great. Therefore, they won't make plastics for a non-seller. Go figure.
I find it completely unfair that we can't have cheaper boar boyz, both pointswise and pricewise. £30-40 for a unit of 5 or six is a ridiculous price, as is the points cost for boarboyz, having had a 5 point hike from the previous army book. Yes, they were too cheap. Not THAT cheap however. I'd be happy to pay 20 points/model with the same upgrade options. I'd love them to be plastic.
They will still be available online.
Damn. Thats some disheartening news. I always wanted to get some boar boyz but never did cause of the price(Black Orcs first ). What a bummer.
Yeah. Plus a box of 20 plastic Black Orcs is much cheaper than 5 boar boys
black orcs. boar boyz are useless in that size unit as they are too expensive.
Oooooh, 35 savage orc boar boyz with BoB...
Savage orc boar boyz 7 wide, frenzy, one or the RR to hit spells, boars, big uns, spears, BoB and champion.
3 st5 ws 4 attacks each, +1 for Champ.
2 st5 ws 3 attacks for the boars.
at 7 wide thats 36(!!!) attacks from the unit, assuming hitting on 4s rerolling, wounding on at least 3s,
18 wounds caused at -2 to the armour save as the most probable outcome (as my sums teacher would have said)
Show me a unit that can take THAT sorta punishment
