War Hog

Minion Farrow Heavy Warbeast

Each war hog is over a ton of muscled, bristling rage strong enough to rend steel and tear the living flesh from the bones of enemy warbeasts. Enhanced by alchemical and mechanikal augmentations, these products of dark experimentation are goaded by the farrow into a state of frenzied bloodlust. With twin war cleavers and massive tusks, war hogs mercilessly slaughter their enemies, answering the screams of their victims with primitive grunts of delight.

Analysis of War Hog[edit]

War Hog in a nutshell[edit]

The War Hog is a stone cold melee killer of heavies. Hitting hard and crunching through things.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

  • Battle Boar For when you really don't want that Colossal to survive
  • Dr. Arkadius Probably overkill with Arkadius. Which means they get the job done.
  • Helga the Conquerer Field Marshal: Gang Fighter makes them wreck stuff.
  • Lord Carver, BMMD, Esq. III Batten Down the Hatches takes them above Khadoran armor, and his feat will turn them into wrecking balls.
  • Sturm & Drang Under Sturm they get in unscathed thanks to the ARM buff and Shield Guard. Drang makes them more terrifying than normal

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • It's a very obvious target to enemies. They will probably not ignore them!
  • Getting bogged up by infantry puts them in a pickle.

Tricks & Tips[edit]

  • Chop Chop Chop! Show those Heavies what happens when other people become bacon and ham!

Comparison to Mk2[edit]

They lost their anti-infantry game but got more dangerous in melee vs. heavies and slightly cheaper.
