TrollBoarRiderVII

Submitted by Uncle Fester
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:

    IMO, mammoths are better fitting for Orcs, dwarves and maybe vikings/norse. :wink:

    ty! :) well, the file size is actually not that big at this one......rider models are always bigger in this regard since they essentially consist of 2 units ;)
