Orc Boar Chariot is a Greenskins war machine unit in Total War: Warhammer. When these Chariots ride to war, there is little that can stand in the way of their terrific charge.

Description[edit | edit source]

By lashing together rough-hewn logs, Orcs are able to construct formidable chariots. It takes two powerful war boars to pull such a blocky construction and, at first, even these thick-muscled beasts struggle. With some grunting and not just a little straining flatulence, the boars finally get the crude wheels turning. Once the churning porcine legs have the chariot rumbling along at full tilt, it becomes an impressive shock weapon, capable of slamming into the enemy with the force of a thunderbolt, albeit a hairy and stinky one. If the sheer impact of such hurtling force does not smash the foe, there are always the iron-shod wheels with crude blades attached, the goring tusks of the boars or the spear thrusts of the Orc crew themselves. While not as fast as a wolf-drawn Goblin Chariot, the heavier Orc vehicle hits harder and in return can absorb considerably more punishment than the flimsier gobbo-crewed devices.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

  • Anti-Infantry: Anti-infantry units have an advantage against targets that are smaller than a horse. This advantage can be a damage bonus against small targets, superior weight used to smash through lighter enemies, or an explosive attack from range that effects a large area.
  • 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.
