Savage Wave and Bakemono
Hi all. I am new to Savage Wave and bushido. Played a little a number of years ago. Just wondering with the new starter looming, what are the veteran players thinking about a full bakemono list? Is this something that can put up a reasonable fight and not crumble like a house of cards? Perhaps it is better to have 1 or 2 oni or onisho even? I really like the look of the new starter. Where do I go from there in terms of purchase order? Any opinions or advice is most appreciated. Thanks everyone.

Full bakemono did very well at Bones Con 2018, coming 2nd. Totally viable.

Great! Will definitely give it a go then. Do you know what the list consisted of? Thanks a lot.

Bakemono are not for fighting. Just spam them and do your objective for the mission. And after that try to exhaust your enemy models and then kill them. Mostly you have more models than your enemy

The previous tactic was to shoot something with Xi-Han, make it Berserk - which then made it fight a random bakemono with Last Stand.  After the enemy model was out of position you pile on other bakemono until the enemy model is dead since it's Aggressive.

It's harder to do now since Xi-Han doesn't apply Berserk anymore, but still makes models Aggressive so his timing is later in a turn.

Ah thanks guys. I really like the xi-han and zoo model too. Definitely thonkong pf picking him up. Another one of the reasons im considering a bakemono list.

You can actually make quite a fighty bakemono list now. My first couple of models are typically rinsho, with the ability to give them group activation from the thousand eyes theme, they can easily go in together and wreck someone's day
