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 Faction All Yokai faction playtests listed in one convenient spot, so that you don't have to look through individual unit playtests in their side factions.

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...

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.

Captain Stupendous: Varkaanan Quickblades, Varkaanan Swiftfangs, Bahadur, Brute Gruts (365)

~275 Points Left

GAME SUMMARY:
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...

Yokai vs. Honor Guard

Posted January 23rd, 2021 at 04:59 PM by Astroking112
This was another early game of the initial Yokai faction that I had run. This was closer to where I started learning just how weird and game-warping Shapeshift could be, and the amazing ways to mess with your opponent through it.

VOLCARREN PARADISE by Robber
No glyphs or special scenario rules.
Astro: Masha Shingai, Abe no Seimei (130), Kincho (60, 3L/4D), Nure Onna (70) (370)
Dawn: Honor Guard of the Blasted Lands x4, Akumaken (370)

Versions of Yokai Used

SURVIVING UNITS:
3x Honor Guard
~65 Points

GAME SUMMARY:
Dawn won initiative and led Akumaken into the fight. Meanwhile, I decided to overextend with Nure Onna, nabbing height through the central water to attack down on him with four attacks of 4, dealing 4 wounds and taking no Counter Strike damage. Dawn then engaged Nure Onna with the Honor Guards, but failed to deal any damage. My next turn, I had a fully-charged Nure Onna...

This was one of the earlier tests that I ran of the Yokai as a whole (the first published post in this category is actually the most recent one, truth be told :embarrassed. The most notable change from their latter incarnations is Nure Onna, who was recently significantly redesigned.
