Now that you have a block of 8 IPs, did you already setup the ARP 
section for them?
Afterwards, you need to decide if you want to use Server NAT or 1:1 NAT.
After reading over a few of these post, I think Server NAT will work 
best for you. Because you can pick not only port 80, but also the WAN IP 
to direct those request to the box you desire.

I have a setup exactly like this (multiple WAN to many different 
ports/services on the LAN) and it has worked great for years. Just 
remember that for every NAT rule you create, it needs a corresponding 
Firewall rule.  So if you forward Port 80 on .250 to Box 1, you need a 
firewall rule to allow port 80 to that box, then when you forward Port 
80 on .251 to Box 2, you need another rule for the same thing.
