Re: The Book of Kumiko

I used Kumiko today, and she did great. It was a 250 pt. armies and five of us. I was unlucky and was put in the middle of the board. When everyone got close with the squads she cut right though them. When I fought some heroes though she fell quickly.

Re: The Book of Kumiko

She would see to work well againsts rat screens is she does not get picked off before hand. Special attack prevents scatter and can continue to move after a kill.

Re: The Book of Kumiko

I could make a strong argument that, at least against certain matchups, Kumiko is part of the best 540 point 'tron army:

80 Kumiko
20 Marcu Esenwein
80 Raelin RotV
240 Gladiatrons x3
120 Blastarons x2
540, 23 hexes

The Gladiatronx4 build hits 520 points, and is really only 500 points, given that you will generally drop a Gladiatron. The further above 520 you go, the harder it is to justify going with a 500 point build. At 550, though, I can include Laglor in stead of Kumiko+Marcu. Laglor gives your Blastarons super range and can use his special for rat clearing. This seems like a really strong option to me, so I wouldn't choose Kumiko alongside 'trons at 550+. So 540 seems like her best chance to shine.

Both Kumiko (Glads hold figures in place for the barrage attack, allowing efficient use of Kumiko) and Marcu (stuck attacking a Raelin-backed Gladiatron if he rolls 17+) have nice synergy with the 'trons.

The clear alternative, and I admit it is a very strong one, is:

100 Krav Maga Agents
80 Raelin RotV
240 Gladiatrons x3
120 Blastarons x2
540, 24 hexes

I'm guessing that build saw some play somewhere at a NHSD event last fall, and probably did pretty well.

In a head-to-head matchup, the KMA build probably wins. In a matchup against a horde of 4th Mass or other ranged figures without blockers, I'd rather have the KMA build. But against range+Deathreavers, I'd probably rather have the Kumiko build. That's far from a trivial advantage!

I like it; another good example of where Kumiko's cheap access to multiple special attacks can come in handy. With 20 hexes committed before Kumiko, repulsors are not a viable rat-clearing option, and every other option costs too much.

I might suggest using the Airborne Elite and Kaemon Awa in stead of the 10th and Kumiko, or I might suggest using Raelin in stead of Kumiko and not worrying about your lack of a special attack. But it can depend on the matchup, and this is another spot where Kumiko can slot in nicely.

Re: The Book of Kumiko

Lonewolf used her very successfully against me yesterday at the AZ Game Day. I wouldn't discount her hit-and-run ability, even against heroes.

Re: The Book of Kumiko

“Phantom Walk: Kumiko can move through all figures and is never attacked when leaving an engagement.” With Phantom walk figures are quite literally standing on the same spot at the same time, and it is said that at any point before, during, or after her movement she can attack. Does this mean that she can attack an enemy figure while standing on/with another figure as long as her movement doesn’t end there?

Re: The Book of Kumiko

Re-read the card. It says she can attack "...as long as Kumiko is on a space where she could end her movement."

Re: The Book of Kumiko

I did a battle all the ninjas (heroes and squads) v.s. Hatamoto Taro, and the Tagawa, Kozuke, and Izumi samurai. (which, if my math was correct, was 410 points on 410 points) I used kumiko all most the entire game because 1. she can use a special attack (avoids counterstrike) and 2. she can hit up to three figures a turn. It was looking horrible for the ninjas as it was down to all the samurai army still alive v.s the Ninjas of the Northern Wind, Isamu, and a 1 life Kumiko, and then (as most heroscape battles seem to even out) kumiko in one turn wiped out a Tagawa and 2 Kozuke, and went on to take out 2 more Izumi, another Tagawa, and the last Kozuke samurai. (all of this while she was at 1 life) Then she fell to the Izumi. The NotNW mopped up HT and the remaining Tagawa, and Kozuke samurai. She was well worth her 80 points.

This is a good post, because it finally gives some practical evidence of Kumiko's potential. I don't have the wave 9 figs, but has anyone seen Kumiko as a good counter to Rats (God, I hate rats!). Her phantom walk and 3 special attacks is actually unique and seems designed to counter an onslaught of rats. However, her 3 attack v. 4 def might make this a moot consideration. Anyone try this out in a real competition?

I dunno, maybe because you're tired of constantly playing the same old pieces?
Same old pieces? Hmmm... Migol, Axegrinders, Brave Arrow, MRT, Capuans, Repulsors, TBR, Dividers...

Where did kumiko go!?!?!

Huh, the only work she could get was at the ninja bachelor party I guess.

That's just wrong on so many levels...

Anyway... I think her power looks decent, but she's a niche unit, no doubt about that. But then again I make some good game scenarios with niche units, which is why I'm glad she's on her way
