Savage Boarboy Maniak
The Savage Boarboy Maniak are the horn-tips of a Bonesplitterz warclan's attack, possessed to the brim with the power of the Waaagh!. Perched on the backs of snorting War Boars and revelling in the fury of combat, they scorn protection and basic self-preservation as they goad their mounts with savage kicks and sharpened bits of bone, driving them ever faster into battle.[3a][3b]
These hordes of mad boar-riders are led by Savage Boar Boss Maniaks or Savage boss Maniaks capable of striking more times than usual. They are supported by bearers of Boar Totems or Bone Totems, and musicians who play Boar Thumpers.[3a][3b]
Being repeatedly possessed by raging animal spirits leaves them more than a little unhinged, causing them to charge and thrash around in battle like some furious godbeast rather than a mortal creature, albeit a downright dangerous one. When Maniaks spot their enemies, they move with truly terrifying speed. In their eagerness to get into battle, they will even trample over their own kind, barely noticing those that fall. As soon as a single Maniak gets to grips with the enemy, the rest redouble their efforts to land a blow on something, until their entire mob has crashed and hacked its way deep into the enemy's ranks.
Their War Boars are just as mad as they are, and each one is chosen for its ill temper and violent antics. They attack with their tusks and hooves, trampling and goring their foes until all that's left is a mangled corpse. This is further amplified by the Orruks, who drive sharpened bone spurs into their flanks, attacking with their tusks and hooves. Like the orruks on their backs, the boars have been infected with the spirit-madness that pours off the Maniak Weirdnob that leads them.[3a][3b]
- Before the release of Battletome: Bonesplitterz (2016) this unit was just an alternate weapon option for Savage Orruk Boarboys.
