There is no explicit Boar option as previous Ork armies have allowed, but he may be on a bike. I don't think too many people would object if you had a Boar in place of a bike.

Nothing wrong with using bores as bikes. Now that your HQ choice can ride a bike/bore, sounds like you can do what you wanted. :)

and there are so many things to do.
I just managed to get the Space marines ive been collecting, and not opening the boxes to for 11 years built and gave them a few army lists.

But orks, are far orkier

and now ill have a reasion to put Gorbad Ironclaws model on the table
as orkamedies "Give me a place to stand, and I shall smash the world."

As has been said, you could say that Boars/Cyboars count as Bikes. I personally would have no problem, although it wouldn't be WYSIWYG for Tournaments.

The other problem is that all your Boars will need to have the same weapons as the Bikes. This could cause some problems trying to model them onto a Boar...

I love boars, but if they are going to be used as bikes they need some kind of modelled justification to moving 24" per turn.

No problem, never heard of bikes being referred to as 'hogs'?

Nail them to the boar's head - it won't notice the difference!

Works for me. They're Orks!

:skull: I got an amusing mental image of a burna nozle being mounted beneath the boars tail to engage the afterburna for turbo boosting. I have a bunch of boars lying around. I got them cheap off of ebay and could never decide if I wanted them for feral orks or to add them to the stuff I have laying around that will oneday go towards an orc army. I just might have to model up some hogz.:skull:

I don't think there'd be any issue whatsoever with using cyboars 'counts as' bikes, even in a tournament or GT. Heck, the old-but-not-ancient cyboar models are wheeled on the back. Turbo-boosting? Just flip da red levver an' let loose da drugz!

Cheers,

Precisely! I quite agree. :)

Ive been tinkering with some of my old Boar boys
Ive decided i really like the look of Boars with exaust pipes, and riders with duel storm bolters
