Orc Warboss (War Boar)Pure muscle and rage, Warbosses devastate enemies with their brutal melee attacks.
Orcs are led by the biggest and brawniest of their kind. These hulking individuals have pummelled their way to the top in a culture where only the strongest survive. Orc leaders do not rise above the knock-down brawls so common amongst their race, they thrive on them - at least until they are toppled by a still mightier challenger. Having established dominance over all competitors, Orc leaders take control of a mob or, if they are strong enough, an entire tribe. Any who question the right of the leader to rule must be slain, driven off or spectacularly beaten into submission.

There are those who wish nothing more than to be at the heart of battle, seeking foes to vanquish.
The Warboss lifts his head and unleashes a mighty "WAAAGH!" – the boyz echo this terrifying roar as the entire Greenskin horde surges towards the enemy!

Strengths & Weaknesses
- Armoured & Shielded
Armoured units can block damage from any source apart from Shields have a chance of blocking arrows, bolts, rifle shots and similar small arms fire - but only in a forward facing arc.
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.
