Orc Shaman (War Boar)

Shamans practise the art of annoyance - peppering their enemies with frustrating, painful and distracting spells.

An Orc Shaman is a living conduit to Gork and Mork and can wield such arcane might that even the cruellest old Warbosses have to be impressed. The power of a Shaman comes not just from the Winds of Magic, or "da Great Green" as Greenskins know it, but also from the raw energy radiated by their fellow Orcs. As they advance into battle, the Waaagh! energy rises, allowing a Shaman to focus that force through the power of his mind. What erupts out of the Shaman are spells as brutal as the Orcs themselves. Shamans have been known to cause a foe's brains to burst out of his skull, to shoot death beams out of their own beady eyes or to summon an almighty green foot from the skies to stomp and squish any unfortunate enough to be caught underneath it. By using the awesome powers of Greenskin magic to destroy an enemy, Orc Shamans earn the right to their eccentricities.

Attributes

  • Encourage
    This unit provides a Lord's aura and an encouraging unit will receive the larger of the two bonuses.
  • Hide (forest)
    This unit can hide in forests until enemy units get too close.

Strengths & Weaknesses

  • Spellcaster
    This unit can cast spells.
  • 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.
