TrollBoarRiderVII

This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
This is the 2nd version of my Troll Boar Rider series. The first version was a melee unit, this one is ranged, throwing a huge axe. There's also a custom projectile for this model. This boar is mounted by a precisely aiming Troll axe thrower, who rarely misses, and to make things worse, he can as well toss a net to esnare unfortunate fleeing enemies or airbornes. The melee version and this guy usually raid hand-in-hand, though the melee ones are usually making the larger number in a war party. The ranged guys are mainly a support unit, not the majority of the party. This cavalry unit is also rather light armored, with only a thick leather coat covering the rider, but the boar is the same resistant as the other version.
It's a pretty fast moving, light armored cavalry unit, that is best used for pillaging villages, raiding unguarded bases and for destroying enemy concentrations in forests, where huge formations are next to impossible. Boars are also considerably heavier-built than wolves, which makes them more resistant. In contrary to the other boar riders, these guys are more susceptible to attacks from ranged units. This might sound surprising or strange, but usual pikemen can be hold with a net at their place and attacked from safe distance, while this doesn't prevent most archers from defending themselves. But as with the other ''hoggers'', only a handfull of ground units can take them down and these guys are even a menace for air units.


Feel free to use it in any way you want! Have fun with it! :wink:

EDIT 1: my thanks to Misha's good moderation, which made me aware of a few minor flaws that somehow escaped me when uploading this model first. Now the problems have been solved: the rider's legs don't clip into the boar's legs now. They look like moving behind the boar's front legs now. Also fixed the wrong assigned vertices on the first pair of the boar's tusks. :wink:

works well, approved
 
Hey, another nice work here. Too, bad our moderators are a bit busy nowadays.
thx a lot, old friend :ogre_hurrhurr: Yeah, i've got 12 or 14 pending models. :vw_sad:

Nice, finally a troll not on a raptor
ty :ogre_haosis: Yeah, this was my thinking too at the time i made the first version of it. I just thought ''Hey, all ordinary Troll rider models have a raptor mount, so why not make something that's different, like a boar?'' :wink:I always thought of how to make my models unusual and uncommon in my recent works. IMO, this brings more variety to the game. :wink:
 
Busy Busy :D
I think your models are one of the best (maybe the best) :ogre_haosis:
thx a lot :ogre_haosis: Well, there are actually models which are much better than mine, IMO. But i'm trying to constantly improve quality, style and ideas. :wink: I've specialized recently in making unusual and currently not existing models, i.e. models that haven't been made anywhere so far. My first among them where the Haradrim. If you want to see them, just check out my ressources or search the Hive's model section under ''Haradrim''. :wink: Oh, and if you like completely unusal stuff, than try out ''Shark Rider''. I've made 3 versions: a standard one, a sorcerer and a hero. :wink:
