When I scanned them in I aligned them up as best I could but couldn't figure out how to get it exactly right other than trial and error so I left my scans as is instead of wasting all my ink. How did you align them?

Re: The Book of Agent Skahen

That's very nicely done and no wonder I couldn't get it to work. I don't know how to use photoshop lol.

Re: The Book of Agent Skahen

Anyone have any good 500 point army ideas?

I have tried:
Agent Skahen- 120
Krav Maga Agents- 100
Agent Carr- 100
Raelin 1- 80
Syvarris- 100
Total: 500

This army kites hard. Awesome threat ranges on Skahen, Agents, and Syvarris. Skahen adds some flexibility with covering fire for Carr and the Agents. Raelin keeps everyone stealth dodging.

I was also thinking:
Agent Skahen- 120
Krav Maga Agents- 100
Raelin 1- 80
Deathstalkers x2- 200
Total: 500

Skahen and Agents can kite and the Deathstalkers can be used to strike first or pounce on anything that gets close to the Agents and Skahen. The Deathstalkers can also counter Cyprien (one of the best counters to the Agents and Skahen).

Any thoughts or other ideas?

@superfrog the Command Courier link is wrong in the VC spoiler. It leads to Count Raymond.

Re: The Book of Agent Skahen

I used Skahen in an all-uniques army consisting of:

Skahen
KMA
Q9
X17

I haven't used Skahen a whole lot, but she seemed pretty much like a slightly worse version of KMA, which doesn't make her bad; she's just 20 more points and 1 less attack, for an additional (not super great imo) ability, cover fire. Still, very cool figure, and worth playing in cases where a hero would be better than a squad.

I always feel like her design was supposed to help the the heroes more than the squads. Getting Dund into position without OMs shows promise.

Otherwise, I agree. Use something else most of the time. Krav or Kaemon are better options for the same cost or less.

Re: The Book of Agent Skahen

Copied from my power rankings thread:

“Agent Skahen: Actually better against melee than against range. Very solid ranged hero: 2x3s at 7 range is solid, and 6 move with 7 range is stupid good for kiting. Otonashi with her Cover Fire is hilariously good for the 10 points. Unfortunately, Skahen suffers from whiffs more than even Krav, as a single whiff can easily spell 2 wounds or death. A-”

She actually serves a different role from the Krav, and is an excellent tool against melee; Krav are much better against range. Double Attack, Cover Fire with Otonashi, and 7 range all in one figure for 120 (functionally 130 as you should never take Skahen without Oto) is pretty insane.

I've not used Skahen that much, but I don't really understand why having Otonashi run around with her is that good. Yeah you can slingshot her on her normal move, but she's not worth an order marker unless you're grabbing a glyph, or happen to be fighting wild figures, but even then two attacks of base 3 is probably better than 1 at 4. It seems like she'd be best used to tie up anyone who's trying to get close to Skahen, but with only 1 life, and 3 defense, she won't last long. Cover Fire is only able to move figures, and you have to get wounds to do that, so I don't see how it's better than just taking a turn with a squad of Microcorp, or especially Krav Maga agents. I feel like I have to be missing something.

It's something you have to see in action to really understand how stupid it is. Basically, Skahen should never get engaged, with her long range and fast move. She needs to keep moving, avoid corners of the map, and maximize her range. However, anyone who has played Krav knows that eventually one of them gets cornered; it's inevitable. With Skahen, Otonashi is a get out of jail free card. You may corner my Skahen once, but I'm not letting you corner her again, and Otonashi prevents you from capitalizing on the one time you did. It's absolutely oppressive against melee.
