Feral Ork Boar Boyz

Having seen the plastic Orc Boar Boyz I decided that a pack wouldn’t go amiss so that I could put them together as Feral Ork Boar Boyz.

You get five models altogether.

There are three plastic sprues for the five models.

Going Feral

With the imminent release of the new Warhammer Fantasy Orcs and Goblins army book, Games Workshop have announced various Orc models for pre-order.

Like any good Warhammer 40K Ork player it’s always worth a look to see what can be cannbalised for your Ork army.

My initial thoughts were about getting some reinforcements for my Feral Ork force.

The new Savage Orcs with a few additions would make some very nice Feral Ork Boyz.

To be honest I am not so keen on the Savage Orc Boar Boyz and will probably stick with “normal” Boar Boyz.

My main problem is the Savage Orcs seem to be sitting very high upon their Boars. The “normal” Boar Boyz are much more tightly crouched on their mounts.

I do quite like the Nasty Skulkers.

I think they would make for some fine Grots for my Orks.

And then we come to the Arachnarok Spider…

I don’t know, but for some reason I do like the model and would love to use it with my Ork army. There is something outrageous and silly about a huge spider and this would make for a setpiece for a Feral Ork army. Not so sure what the Imperial Guard would make of it though…

I have made and painted some Boar Boyz for a Feral Ork force already and you can see how I made and painted those here.

Having decided to make some more, unlike my other three Boars, for these models I also ordered some metal Cyboar heads from the old Snakebitez bitz range – this was before Games Workshop rationalised their online bitz store. So the Boars went together pretty easily. Though I had no tails! On the plastic boars, the tails are on the head sprue and I only ordered plastic boar bodies. Ah well out with the Green Stuff!

The models were given a white undercoat.

This is my favourite which has a lot of armour plates and cybernetics.

Snakebitez Ork Boar Boyz

This week Games Workshop announced the release of some new Orc Boar Boyz for Warhammer Fantasy Battle.

Orc Boar Boyz are rough, tough and very determined. They ride into battle atop War boars – evil-minded creatures that will take every opportunity to maim, bite and kick the enemy of their Orc masters. Boar Boyz are the shock cavalry of an Orc and Goblin army, and they love nothing better that to gore, stamp and inflict damage on the enemy.

These are very nice looking plastic miniatures.

I can’t be the only Warhammer 40,000 Ork player looking at these new models and thinking time to add some Boar Boyz for my Feral Orks.

I have done this before with some other Warhammer Fantasy Orc Boar Riders.
