Can you help

I'm looking to buy some more savage wave and the card decks but I am on a limited budget. Would anyone be kind enough to share the theme cards so I can choose my new models accordingly if i like a particular theme?

Please

There is 2 theme 

Oni+slaves+animals : it gives you a small discount on onis and a fear bonus

bakemono : free darkness fist turn and the ability to gank someone with your gob.

These are real small bonus, if you want to be efficient with SW I would advise you not to play a theme as one oni and some bakemono work well together. I'm playing the oni theme and I like how strong you feel smashing your opponent even if I may loose doing so !

Oh ok

I do love the bakemono but lack hard hitters but would field a large warband. I also love animal lists decisions decisions lol

The bakemono are horribly resilient though, you have to kill a lot of them quickly to stop them popping additional models into play and that snowballs their ki generation, and so on, and so forth. coupled with a single hard hitter or a rider and you have a fairly effective scenario based list.

I haven't got any boomers, I know these can't be summoned but I am thinking that I should get some

If you are looking for hard hitter, Zoo and Rinsho are really good, even the beast rider are decent.

I can't see a value in adding boomers to a bake list. Having a couple of cheap models that can soften up opponents for your oni s to mop up is maybe worth it but reload 2 and a low ranged skill would concern me if I took them in a bakemono dominant list.

I agree but camo 4 means you'd get a short distance guaranteed shot and against wraith for example would be awesome even if wraith is in combat and 12" away you'd still hit it on 3's with a +4 damage roll it's things like that I'm thinking off Adam.

I like the idea of Rinso and zoo, it's a bit like Jekyl and Hyde so I can see myself getting them Wogshrog

I think the boomers are great as a centre-table threat.
