im frikkin lovin the new models,the boars are much more fantasy like now and more proportioned to the orcs physical build than the old ones,other than looking meaner and whats not to love about that?
they shouldnt look even sane enough compared to a common boar anyways,considering they are letting orcs ride em and the old ones used to look too tame compared to their riders especially a model like the chariot needed feral boars like this for a long time,i think you'all agree.
i dont think color choice is a real issue here,since we are given freedom to paint em as we like,no?
the boar boyz themselves gotten cooler,i especially love the shields but gear like-wise they look tougher and wilder.

regarding the trolls...although the old stone,blue guys are still everyone's favourite (and i make no exception) i find these new guys pretty bad-ass(old river trolls werent that amazing either anyways),especially the belching one.totally love that dude!

i know,the greenskin models are kinda slowly losing the funny and silly edge they used to have (or at least it got toned down quite a bit) but luckily there still are little gems like this every now and then that should cheer up even the die-hard fans.
personally i just dig the fiercer turn this army took as i like my boyz to act stupid more than they looking like it.even an orc as his pride,after all!
but now i wonder what they are going to redo next...hopefully the wolves are in agenda too. wink.gif

Just noticed that the picture rotation for the trolls has two other versions of possible gribblies, one very reminiscent of a Great Unclean One and a very cool pale green fellow.

The one with the fish (I want to name him Steve for some inexplicable reason) is my favorite so far. He combines this great amphibious predator feeling with an expression that says "Do I eat this guy whole, do I want to hit him with the club a few times first, or should the fish should be involved somehow?". Love it.

Well it's about time they got themselves a redux! But these models look awesome!
I was wavering whether to stick it out or go over to the beastmen side, these guys tipped me back to the orcs side. ohmy.gif WAAAAAAAAGH!

Hmmm, boar boyz, yeah not bad.

Those trolls. Nope, I definitely prefer the current metals. Meh, I have 5 rivers, 5 stones and a normal from Skull Pass. I'm reckoning it's prolly enough Trolls anyway.

Guys, this is the fourth post today! We appreciate the enthusiasm, but please keep everything in one place. The one you're looking for is in the stronghold.

<waves hand>

This isn't the post you're looking for.

I like the trolls. I'm hoping the boar riders will grow on me. Shame that River Trolls aren't very good in the current version of our army book. Hopefully with the new models they will get a much needed upgrade in the new army book. Sadly this is going to be relegated to a modelling project, and will be down on my priority list underneath everything needed to finish my competative army.

Okay, I've merged three topics together into this one, and posted a message up in the newsbar biggrin.gif

Right, down to business: Those are some nifty looking models indeed. I'm a little sad that there's very little in the way of extra gubbinz on either of the sets (aside from the awesome vomit stream and the cool shields for the Boyz) but the variety in the Trolls and the CHEAP price of the Boars more than make up for that!

Shame that's all we're getting for the time being - I heard there were meant to be three sets released.

Still, can't complain happy.gif

I am not sure wheaver I licked the old boar over the new ones. The new boar definatly look a lot better. But there is something about the way they are being riden that looks odd. But enough about that I'll be getting some anything because of the price biggrin.gif

Quick question does anyone think this will change O&G armies from now on. I mean before some players didn't have acess to these and know they will have. Allowing player to field large multiple units whitch in turn will have a big effect on how they play and what the outcome is.

Too bad that the boars again don't look much like boars. They made nice boars for Gorbad and the plastic warlord kit, I wonder why the couldn't go in that direction with the boar boyz.

I was also hoping that the spears would get more realistic, I mean seriously these things look like they add +3S.

I agree that they look a little looney those boars, but i wouldn't change them for the ones in the warboss kit at all. Both the boar and the rider is so static and boring in the warboss kit, while these looks as if they are running 100 m/h biggrin.gif
The boyz are really holding on tight to the mane and trying to stay on the back of that creature. I really can't see how you'd rather want someone who looks as if they stand still. But i guess it's all just about taste..

I wasn't talking about them being dynamic vs static but simply the looks of the boars. The warboss boar looks like a boar but those new ones just seem out of proportion. It might be just an impression that the bad paintjob does though.

Hey guys.
Am I the only one thinks that the Trolls look like more Nurgle Chaos Trolls rather than O&G Trolls?

Besides, I really hated those pig faced boars. They shouldnt look like realistic, they should look like fantasy world savage warboars! Do you remember the old TV show "Alf"? These boars look exactly like him! They are not boar boyz, they are Alf Boyz. sad.gif
