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. 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:

ASCENSION by Flash_19
Glyphs: Holdir and Valda
Heavy Snow and Normal Ice.
Astro: Abe no Seimei, Kincho, Masha Shingai, Kirin (480)
Captain Stupendous: 4th Massachusetts Line x4, Alastair MacDirk, Morgan's Riflemen, Eldgrim (480)

Spoiler Alert!

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.

No glyphs. Expanded starting zones to hold everyone's armies.

Team 1:
Astro: Abe no Seimei, Kincho,...

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.

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

Abe no Seimei (1 wound)
~104 Points Left

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...

Ibaraki-doji Solo Tests

Posted January 23rd, 2021 at 05:37 PM by Astroking112
As a part of crunching out Ibaraki-doji once we discovered that the Oni Night Haunter sculpt did have the availability for a submission, @Leo Ultra wanted to run several solo tests against other heroes in the 120 point range to see how they compared. Given that these tests are smaller in nature than full games, I've combined them into one post to reduce the number of blog entries that I'm uploading today.

Ibaraki-doji vs. Siege
Round 1, Initiative Ibaraki.
Ibaraki turn 3: SA 2 skulls vs 2 shields, SA 1 skull vs 1 shield
Siege turn 3: 3 skulls vs 1 shield, Ibaraki takes 2 wounds.

Round 2, Initiative Ibaraki
Ibaraki turn 1: Normal attack 3 skulls vs 5 shields.
Siege turn 1: Normal attack 3 skulls vs 1 shield; Ibaraki reduced to 3 life.
Ibaraki turn 2: SA 2 skulls vs 1 shield; Siege takes 1 wound. SA 1 skull vs 3 shields.
Siege turn 2: Normal attack 2 skulls vs 2 shields.

Yokai vs. Varkaanans

Posted January 23rd, 2021 at 05:07 PM by Astroking112
This was another early game, where Captain Stupendous offered to help out with testing the Yokai against some Varkaanans. Jealousy that Bahadur is so much better than Masha Shingai ensued.

TICALLAN TOWER by Sir Heroscape
No glyphs.
Astro: Abe no Seimei (130), Masha Shingai, Kincho (60), Nure Onna (70)
Captain Stupendous: Varkaanan Quickblades, Varkaanan Swiftfangs, Bahadur, Brute Gruts (365)

Versions of Yokai Used
Note: Nure Onna was played with only being able to attack once per revealed OM. No other changes were made to her yet.

2x Swiftfangs, 2x Quickblades, 4x Brute Gruts, Bahadur (unwounded)
~275 Points Left

Nure Onna started off strong in the first round, killing 2 Swiftfangs at the end of the round as the Varkaanans coalesced around Masha, who had Shapeshifted into position. She was then cornered on the next turn, though, and struggled...
