Dwarven Boar Riders, wielding great axes, are among the fiercest mounted warriors, rivaling the Orcish heavy cavalry. Boars are not able to move as quickly as full-sized horses, but they enable the Dwarven riders to move much faster than foot soldiers. Like other Dwarves, their inborn hardiness also gives them a natural resistance to many magical effects and poison.
Though mocked by other races as "Pig-lovers" the Dwarves share a strong bond of trust with the formidable swine. The boars are sure-footed, even across rocky mountain passes.
