The Book of Kaemon Awa
The Book of Kaemon Awa
Dawn of Darkness - Collection 6 - "Heroes of Durgeth"

If you cannot see the Army Card graphic, check Hasbro's Unit Page for stats and special powers, plus "character biography" and other non-game unit info.

Character Bio: "Tensely drawn bow string,... Swift arrows release and soar,... Few are left standing
Hateful sword striking,... Kaemon Awa quickly draws,... Awa is faster"

- A pair of haiku writ of Kaemon Awa in battle.

Kaemon Awa fervently fighting on the field of battle is a thing of deadly beauty. It inspires allies to brave feats, and terrifies foes to shameful retreat. Arrows fly from his bow at an unbelievable pace. Enemies are not safe from afar, and less so from up close, for Awa is even more lethal with his sword drawn.

Hasbro answer: No. The additonal attacks must be special attacks.

When you decide to use a Special Attack instead of a normal attack, you cannot attack with the normal attack that turn unless it specifically says so in the wording. In these 2 cases (Nilfheim and Kaemon Awa), you've begun with the Special Attack. Any subsequent attacks that round would also be with the Special Attack.

This may be a nice addition to the Rulings and Clarifications section?

Kaemon Awa is one of my favorited units and I thought of tips and tricks with him. I was going to post this as a seperate topic but figured it would just get deleted.

Kaemon Awa is powerful and with range and four attacks he can take out units with a defense of 3 or less easily. When dealing with more powerful units with more life or defense, don't bring him closer to the unit if it has no range. If it does have range go closer and use his special attack. He is best used as a mid- game hero to take out heavy hitters or powereful melee units. He can be used as melee or range depending on the situation. One problem is his life.

Units that work well against him would be units that have powerful ranged attacks like Syvarris and KMA, or AE. You could also use Nilfeim. In one game Nilfeim took out Kaemon Awa and Major Q9 in one turn with his special attack.

Units that work well with him would be ranged units that can last long like the KMA, Nakita Agents, or the Marro Warriors. Units to protect from powerful ranged attacks help too. Units like the Nakita Agents and Raelin would be helpful. To stop swarms of vipers and 4ht mass use the rats. They can tie up the units and then Kaemon Awa can get close enough to use his special attack without being engaged. He can also be usesd as a front line like Syvarris. Use theracas to get him to a passing point for enemies and get him height advantage. He can rain down some arrows as the enemy passes below. Here are some armies.

Kaemon Awa 120
Nakita Agents 120
Raelin 80
Rats 2 80

Stop the opponent with the rats and bring all the rest of your units into battle. Keep one Nakita Agent next to Kaemon Awa and Raelin. Use Kaemon Awa with his powerful attack and double attack to destroy the units engaged to the rats. Then wait for the rest of the enemy to come and destroy them with a head on battle. The problem with this army is it is just one big wave of attack. In most armies your sending unit after unit but not this army. For a 500pt. build I would just add the KMA. They can be the first wave and then the rats which would not be expected. You would tie up the enemies melee and maybe some range but you'd have an advantage. Okay, that's all I have to say.

What isn't Kaemon good for? He has a sweet special attack, strong ranged attack, decent melee attack, and pretty good defense. Plus, he's disciplined.

ole Kaemon has the potential to whoop some toosh if given the chance! back him up with Brunak or Theracus and this guy can get some where in a hurry.

Kaemon has got a good offense and defense that is rarely seen in any other fig. He's got a bow that can attack up to 2 times, plus if someone gets real close and attacks he can potentially harm them with counterstrike. He's probably my favorite character so far! :up:

Just got him today, and played a game with him. Very good unit, and was a great match for Cyprien, though he fell to Kee-Mo-shi when the two unholy warriors teamed up. But after the dust had cleared, Kaemon had earned his points and then some. Very solid; not very flashy, but he gets the job done.

gamjuven August 8th, 2007 05:23 PM

I love him, although my experience with him vs cyprien is not to his advantage. Cyprien chilled him dead before he did anything.

johnny139 August 8th, 2007 05:40 PM

Well, Cyprien was pretty banged up by some others by then, and was running around killing squaddies. Kaemon kept him around 4/5 damage, even after most of his archers were frozen/bitten. So while he'll fall to Cyprien head-to-head, he can keep him "Out of my Yard" so to speak.

Jexik August 9th, 2007 10:37 AM

Solid. He's reason enough to buy the Heroes of Durgeth. He's like Nilfheim without big annoying wings. He can also hit the same guy twice.

CaptainJack102 August 10th, 2007 07:56 AM

I see Kaemon Awa as being one of the best defenders, stick him behind a unit of samurai and they can take the brunt of enemy attacks while softens them up for close encounters

marro_master October 7th, 2007 02:01 PM

whenever my bro and me play he ALWAYS picks kaemon, well c'mon can u blame him? :D he is the coolest samurai out there, and he "owns" his little archer squad that helps him fight :)

Overlord Hikash October 10th, 2007 06:48 PM

My absolute favorite looking sculpt. Colorful, and just... well... cool looking. Always performed, too. Low health... but I find that no-one really gets to him. Very solid range with 4 attack. Works for me. If they get closer, just pelt them with the Quick Release. I pretty much always draft him in a 600 or so point army. Him, the Tagawa Samurai, and then pick around from there. Usually the commander of my army.
