Most Orc Boar Boyz mobs have colourful titles - "Da Tuskers", "Snortin' Wreckas", "Line-Smashas" and so on. Many bear crude board imagery on their banners and shields, depicting tusked skulls, bloody hoofs, and the like. When not carried in battle, such gear of war hangs atop the stockade pens that enclose the war boars. It is common practice to stack any trophies, like severed heads or enemy banners, around the boar enclosure. Boar Boyz take advantage of their elite status, lording it over all other Greenskins save leaders and Black Orcs. It is natural in some tribes for a mob of Boar Boyz to develop into Big 'Uns. The combination of especially large and powerful Orcs atop war boars makes for even more devastating charges and, not surprisingly, even greater swagger and bravado around the Greenskin camp.
↑Anti-Infantry: Anti-infantry units have an advantage against targets that are smaller than a horse. This advantage can be a damage bonus against small targets, superior weight used to smash through lighter enemies, or an explosive attack from range that effects a large area.
↑Armour-Piercing: The damage of armour-piercing weapons mostly ignores the armour of the target, making them the ideal choice against heavily-armoured enemies. They are often heavier and attack at a slower rate though, making them less efficient against poorly-armoured targets.
↑Shielded: Shields have a chance of blocking arrows, bolts, rifle shots and similar small arms fire - but only in a forward facing arc.
Like any light cavalry, they are best used to hit an enemy unit then running after ten seconds. They do their best work hitting missile units and units already fighting your boyz from behind. Be sure to keep an eye on them because they can't survive a protracted engagement.
