Savage Orruk Arrowboys on the warpath.

Savage Orruk Arrowboy is a unit of mad, archer Orruks of the Bonesplitterz warclans, favouring the cunning way of combat of Mork.[1][3][5]

They are led into battle by Savage Arrows Bosses and supported by Skull Thumpers and Bone Totem bearers.[3]

Combat

Some Savage Orruk boys are exceptionally skilled with crude hunting bows and, even though their weapons are primitive, combined with the orruks' great strength, they can send a simple wood or bone shaft clean through a troggoth's skull, a steel shield or a sigmarite breastplate. As much fun as orruks have filling something full of arrows, they eventually get bored of standing around on hills and letting other orruks do all the close-up killing. Their way of combat favours Mork, taking joy in hitting their foes when their backs are turned or when they are too far away to be attacked.[3][4]

As a result, Arrowboys are surprisingly skilled at shooting on the move, often loosing brutally effective volleys even as they are charging the last few strides into combat. Once there, these tribal archers are also adept at using their bows as clubs, and using fists full of arrows as stabbas. They go from firing their bows at range to swinging them in a whirlwind of close-quarters mayhem in the space of a few loping steps.[4]

Wargear

They wield primitive Stinga Bows into battle that together with the potency of their greenskin muscle and Waaagh! energy, its arrows are able to pierce steel shields and plates. They are especially good at bringing down monstrous beasts with these bows, mostly by aiming at the eyes. They shoot as they charge and can use the bows as improvised melee weapons, together with Bone Shives, Chompas, Arrows, bone spears and stone-bladed knives.[1][2a][2b][3][5]

Arrowboys always carry with them a large stockpile of arrows.[2b]
