Gurei-Oni Based 500 Army

Gurei-Oni - 100
Krav Maga Agents - 100
Syvarris - 100
Raelin - 80

Is the core of the army at 380 points. For a recent tournament, I am tempted to throw the AE and Isamu in there to round it off to 500, so total army would be

Gurei-Oni - 100
Krav Maga Agents - 100
Syvarris - 100
Raelin - 80
Airborne Elite - 110
Isamu - 10
500 points

What do you think? Looks like a healthy mix of defense and ranged attack...

Re: Gurei-Oni Based 500 Army

Looks like a promising core. I've been looking for ways to use Gurei-Oni but haven't come up with much so far. Having Raelin-backed Krav and Syvarris is a strong "come and get me" that could allow Gurei-Oni to really shine.

Nevertheless, with so many uniques, order markers could be a problem. I wonder if that last 120 points could be spent on melee squads. Here are a few options to try:

Venoc Vipers x3: Without Mittens they won't be as speedy as they could, but they still could soften up your opponent's forces.

Warriors of Ashra x2 + Fillers: You're not going to get much better melee protection than Defensive Agility.

Deathreavers x3: 'Nuff said.

Or if you want to stay with uniques, here are some other things to try:

Kaemon Awa
Tagawa Samurai
Zetacron + Izumi Samurai
Krug

Re: Gurei-Oni Based 500 Army

Problem with G-O armies is no one would ever risk evil eye def.
I think you need some strong melee in that army too.

Syvaris
Raelin
G-O
Kaemon Awa
WOA x2
500

Have the WoA and G-O act as a human wall and shoot down whatever gets too close.
I am definitely going to try this when I get my secod pack of Warriors and Soulborgs.

Dave Grohl + Josh Homme + John Paul Jones= awesome

Re: Gurei-Oni Based 500 Army

That is quite a few cards for a 380 point army and like Clarissimus said that could be a real problem for you. So I think that your order markers will be hard to manage with that many cards. Also I have found G-O to frail to base an army around or have him be a big part of it. So it is definitely tricky to find a good spot for him in any army.

The only thing that I would consider changing would be to add some sort of samauri to the army for a strong melee defense. Although I have no idea how they would be added. My best guess is for Syvarris to be taken out for the Izumi and 50 other points.

Re: Gurei-Oni Based 500 Army

OK, I have a decent army:

G-O 100
Minions x3 330
Zetian Guards 70
500

Have G-O charge to battle with the minions while the zetians remain on good height.

Re: Gurei-Oni Based 500 Army

Hasn't anyone considered putting Thorgrim and Raelin with him?

Re: Gurei-Oni Based 500 Army

I think Gurei Oni can make a nice addition to the already vicious Q9/Raelin/KMA/Rat army for 500. Seriously, he adds some melee punch without making your enemy's ranged target choices any better. Guido posted an essentially similar army here, with Eldgrim and Isamu in place of the Rats.

~Aldin, frustrated in actual play by Gurei-Oni's fragility

He either fears his fate too much
or his desserts are small
That dares not put it to the touch
to gain or lose it all

Re: Gurei-Oni Based 500 Army

I don't think I'd base an army around Gurei-Oni. If he had a ranged attack, he might be useful, but he suffers from the same problem that RotV Drake did. He has to engage his opponents to use his attacks, and then he's vulnerable. But he might even be worse because his attack is lower and he's double-based.
