Ok, I have never played warhammer fantasy. I just bout two boxes of the old beast herds a couple months ago because I really wanted to paint them. I dislike the new sculpts but that's besides the point.

all I want to know is why everyone calls the new razorboars pumbas and pumba-chariots. what is a pumba, what does it have to do with razorboars, what am i missing here.

Pumba is a Disney Character from the animated movie: The Lion King aka Bambi in Africa. It's a joke. PS, I believe they are called Razorgors, not Razorboars.

what is a pumba

You're trying to tell me you don't know what a pumba is? good try :rolleyes:
... wait, you really don't know?

Annoying responses aside, pumbagors because well, that's what we heard in the rumor section. ''based off of Pumba'' or something, so along with their rather... ugly, mutated (I like them though, they're supposed to be just that) models, they were called pumbagors because they're funny, ugly and they're boars, just like Pumba (though he doesn't deserve being called their kind of ''ugly'', really).

Pumbagor is both to ridicule and honor them.

It's a natural tendency to invent nicknames, whether derogatory, as shortform or as an endearment.

Since he's not been named a warthog, this must be a term of affection.

skullkandy
25-02-2010, 16:22
yeah, i'm dead serious that I had no clue what that was. I know it's pretty pathetic but like I said growing up I lived in a household where "god didn't create animals to talk because they don't have souls and it's an affront to god to protray sentient animals." Yes my mother was completely insane. By the time I moved out, got my own place and could do whatever I pleased I just never watched all the kids movies that came out when I was growing up.

I personally like the model though.

Well if you watch the movie, you might not like him as much.

Better to stick with enjoying the Razorgor model IMHO ;)

well go watch the Lion KIng! Its the disney version of Hamlet.

Sadly I've realized that I can't help but call the Razorgors, Pumbagors. After having heard everyone call it that jokingly, it's been burned into my mind to where I give them that title without even think about it. I am convinced that they are really called pumbagors

Razorgor not boar, it is from the character Pumba from the disney film The Lion King, a rather flatulent character that happened to be a warthog.

I think i'm going to have to do that. I remember one time as a child I got caught havnig snuck a 13 inch tv into my closet to watch captian planet. I was grounded for 3 months because captian planet has super powers and only jesus has super powers. lol

Oh, and for any parent's wondering (as if they would be on this forum:p) it does not help to try and do this to your child. I turned out the complete opposite of what my parent's hoped for. I became a piercer working in a tattoo shop and playing in an industrial band while living with two girls and playing with toy soldiers that look like demons.

point, if you wish to have good little pure children, do the exact opposite.

I was in college at the time and it was quite popular. Good date flick, honestly.

I saw it at an on-campus showing. The scene where Simba and Nala reunite as adults - and she gives him the look - brought the house down. :D

My family owns all three of these movies and actually wore out the dvd player watching them.

Honestly, it fits. Most of GW's models are pretty cartoony these days.

Well the Lion King is hardly "default" Disney - the main storyline is based on Hamlet (so it has a bit of a plot rather than 90 minutes of singing bunnies) whilst the characters are nicked straight from an 1960's Japanese anime series by Osamu Tazuka about a orphaned lion cub called Kimba - altough Disney claims that the dozens of practically identical aspects of both cartoons' characters and storylines are purely coincidental. :p

Anyway, The Lion King is so un-Disneyesque that it is actually a pretty awesome movie - one of my favourite movies and I normally don't like Disney flicks. And it even has a Razorgor as a main character. ;)

Comparing the two art styles, the current one and the ones from thirty years ago, I think it reflects the evolution of the settings. They are now more complex than the rather simplistic good and evil ones from the genesis of that RPG.

This has got to be a wind up:wtf:
No, sadly I dont think it is- I went to school with a number of kids like that here in the good-ol-US of A. Ever heard of Jehova witnesses? The standard tenant amongst their faith is no birthdays, no holidays, just easter- because it the "only thing worth celebrating". There were parents who were incredibly controlling... many of their children ended up going the way skullkandy did, some became shutins, and a couple stayed with the faiths they were raised in- but only a couple. Note, that not all of these were christian religious practices by any means- a couple local jewish families had this problem, as did the local hippy commune.

Ive always said- if you cant trust them to look outside the faith and into the world and come back, then you didnt show them any faith at all.

funny story about D&D. My uncle played and I got a book from him. When my mother found it I was forced to sit and listen to a tape she got at the local propoganda store. I wish I could find this tape now because it would be hillarious to listen to again.

The tape was one of those narrated stories, but it was a group of kids who got pulled into the evil world of D&D. They started withdrawing from friends and family. There was one line in there where they were swinging swords at each other and one kid screams "i can actually see it." he started hallucinating and thought he was really in the game because evil spirits took over his body. Then he killed one of his friends because that's what his character would do. One of the kids then hung himself because his level 17 cleric died failing a save roll to avoid a trap and he didn't want to live anymore because "it was all my fault that Shonen died!!!!"
The remaining kids went insane and had to be put in a mental instatution. Only one kid survived by burning all his D&D books, when he burned them "he could hear the screams of the deamons being chased from the earth by god's holy wrath." Yeah, this really exists and people really do believe that's what D&D is.

....oh and most funny part about the whole D&D suicide club tape, not once were dice used. Apparently they had never once seen a D&D game or book because they thought the entire thing was people just running around pretending to be their characters in the woods.

Faith is eternal.

Faith is my shield.

In his glorious name.

All of these are christian ideals and quotes from history. That warhammer 40k has borrowed. Infact ALOT of things in warhammer is taken from christian culture. Demons, crosses, martyrdom are just a small percentage. Why is this so? Because christian culture built most of the entertainment we have today. How many board games with small minis come from muslim countries, hindu, or buddhist?
This also include disney films...
