This is a neater way of storing my playtests for my customs that I want other people to be able to see. I mostly intend on posting about units that I'd like to submit to the SoV.

Yokai vs. Heavy Gruts

Posted January 30th, 2021 at 06:04 PM by Astroking112
The Kirin-led Yokai just lost to Sacred Band, so obviously the next step is to test them against a probably A-tier army of Heavy Gruts, Nerak, Grimnak, and Marro Warriors. Surprisingly, they did better than against the Sacred Band.

Yokai vs. Sacred Band

So, the Kirin's beefed up and ready to absolutely terrify those bread and butter common squads. What better way to truly test its mettle than to throw it against the horrifying horrors of the Sacred Band?

Feast your eyes, anonymous viewer, but be warned that this post is not for the faint of heart. That is, unless you wanted to see the Yokai lose to a fairly middle-tier army. In that case, you've got nothing to worry about.

Yokai vs. 4th Mass

Posted January 24th, 2021 at 05:59 PM by Astroking112
Captain Stupendous and I ran a game with the Yokai's biggest new addition, the Kirin, against an army of 4th Mass yesterday. I was mostly wanting to see how a figure that in theory counters bread and butter squads fares against some of the most bread-and-buttery units out there. Here are the results:

Yokai Team Battle

Posted January 23rd, 2021 at 07:33 PM by Astroking112
Don't look away from the walls of text just yet! Here's an appealing picture to show how cool the Yokai can look on the battlefield (you can even see Ibaraki in the distance doing Ibaraki things!):



...Just pretend that Arkmer is Seimei, okay? I had to get free shipping from MiniatureMarket somehow, even if it meant that it took several months to get the Seimei sculpt.

In all seriousness, there was a small handful of people that were in my social bubble last semester. One weekend, we decided to have a great HeroScape team battle, even if it took us all night. Throwing in the regenerating Wildwoods and the Yokai that struggle to kill stuff probably didn't help.

Yokai vs. Greenscales

Posted January 23rd, 2021 at 05:55 PM by Astroking112
I'm lost in a sea of posting about Yokai. Will these playtest reports ever end? When did I get here? Where will I go? Do I even exist anymore?

Tune in next week to find out.

VOLCARRAN PARADISE by Robber
No glyphs.
Astro: Abe no Seimei, Kincho, Ibaraki-doji, Nure Onna (390 Points)
Guest: Velnesh Alphas, Zogross Hardscale, Greenscale Warriors x3 (400 Points)

SURVIVING UNITS:
Abe no Seimei (1 wound)
~104 Points Left

GAME SUMMARY:
I led with Nure Onna, but mistimed some initial plays resulting in Ibaraki and her taking a wound from lava field at the end of the round. The other player then won initiative and surrounded Nure Onna, killing her immediately at the start of the next round. I was able to fly Ibaraki-doji in to reclaim her spot after a Shapeshift with the nearby Kincho, using Demon of Rashomon to force a Velnesh to flee and taking out a Greenscale.

The Greenscales then...
