Katsumoto

So I'm waiting on my Katsumoto preorder to arrive and I'm wondering... Has anyone gotten their hands on him yet? Dying for some general info on his capabilities. Can't wait till I have the actual model and card in my possession!

(I'll just step by and say that GCT asks that we do not divulge the stats of new models here until the cards are released for download. wink)

 

 

I follow the rules of bushido. I am a bushi.

Swedish players, rally to Hokuō Bushido!

He's like Hanso, only for all friendly models. Bit scary thinking about him working with the ninja or Matsu.

Basically what A Palmer said, fills the same role but doesn't restrict you to an Ashigaru force. 

From what I can tell looking at him in the blister he's also a lot shorter than Hanso...  (but then again most people are).

I find the whole "don't give away the stats" policy hurts discussion for new models.  How can anyone discuss the model when only a few people even know what it does for 2 months?

Going back to Katsumoto however, he's really, really expensive (more than Hiro) but has the potential to be horrendous to play against as he can feed 2 other models an extra activation every turn (in exchange for his own).  He facilitates lists that centre around the specialists - so models such as Bikou, Matsu, Mizuchi, and any samurai with critical strike will all love him.

I do agree with that. And people want to discuss about news, not for the release that was 2 month ago. As a result, there isn't a lot of discussion on this forum...

Hanso does not do that. Correct me if I'm wrong, but he has "Command", which allow him to pay for one activation to activate immediatly two other models (which will increase their conditions). Does Katsumodo have Order and not Command?

This model must be good, I already love him :)

He has both Order and Command (though one involves a Ki feat).

So basically Junichi and Hanso in one, (which is arguably worse as it's less activations for the player and easier to be exhausted), but can't see when I would ever use him as Prefecture are centred around ashigaru with specialists in support (considering more Goshi/ashigaru are on the way). 

For those who like the specialists over ashigaru I can see the appeal, the ability to Order samurai and shugenja etc seems really strong but at such a high cost I can't see him being fielded as the specialists have expensive rice costs themselves.  Maybe in 50-55 Rice games.

.

100% in agreement.

And i consider myself lucky: i can go to my local shop to check the profils.
If i wouldn't have a local resaler, i would not see them (and buy them, as i don't buy without seeing) before many months....

Agree, it stifles the buzz and creativety. New stuff means new strategies and raises new topics. Two months wait seems odd in that view.

Having finally received my katsumoto I must say hey looks incredibly powerful, but I don't think I'll be using him even in my 50 rice games. I really like the play style of the starter with Hiro, Hanso and a bunch of ashigaru and think ill keep exploring that path...

I finaly have it. With you coments I expected more similarities with Hanso, but is different, i like it :D

I can see a very expensive but powerful combo with Ryoko. Activate4-5 models at same time and End the Turn... I need to try that :P

Bushido its not about Killing, its about Tactic.
