100 rice of the ideal painting

Need some advices for building Ito list


The case is that I will order quite expansive painting of my warband (about 80-90$ per model), so I really want to creat a list, which will be good.

Also I won’t use any model, which I don’t like. Here the list of which I liked:

Ito Itsunagi

Kyou

Ito Ayako

Sakura

Ito Mizuki

Kazuhiko

Haruki

Yatsumata

Izu Serprents

Ito Kaihime

Child of Orochi

Akimoto

Jade Mamba Guard

Isas

Ito Kinu

Kazuhiko

Temple Bushi

So I won’t use any other Ito model

About the lists. I thing about a few variants:

1. Lords of Izu

Ito Itsunagi [25] with Forked Tongue [2]

Jade Mamba Guard [13] with Muramasa’s Blade [3]

Yatsumata [25]

Haruki [14] with Teachings of Yashushi [2]

Ishi [14]

Event - Dark Secrets [2]

100 Total.

2. Serpents Coil

Ito Itsunagi [25]

Jade Mamba Guard [13]

Ito Mizuki

Haruki [14]

Ishi [14]

Isas [10]

Event 1 - Dark Secrets [2]

Event 2 - Orochi’s Shadow [2+1]

100 Total.

3. The Blessed

Ito Kinu [16] with Induction into the Priesthood [2]

Sakura [13]

Kyou [16] with Teachings of Yashushi [2]

Jade Mamba Guard [13] with Muramasa’s Blade [3]

Kazuhiko [8]

Ishi [10] with Uwabami’s Tooth [1]

Temple Bushi [10]

Event 1 - Dark Secrets [2]

Event 2 - Orochi’s Shadow [3+1]

100 Total.

What do you say?

Hi! I'm fairly new to the game (8 games in) so I'm no expert but I have played Ito every game. Here are my thoughts. Having only 5 models in a 100 rice list is likely to put you behind on activations and bodies vs most opponents and that will make it harder to be competitive in the scenario games. So I think your Lord's of Izu list would be fun to play but difficult to win with. On the other hand your The Blessed list has 7 models but they have very little ability to take damage and might also struggle to deal damage--especially to opponents in armor. So if I were choosing between the 3 I would go with your Serpents Coil list. 6 models is a decent number and the list has a good mix of damage dealers, tanks, and control. Whatever you do I hope you have fun!

on your lords of ito list I would pull Yamatsu and toss in Kaihime and temple Bushi. Kaihime hits hard at range and the bushi gets you another body for objectives. plus with Kaihime putting poison out the Bushi will hit harder. Just a thought to get numbers and extend your threat with a nasty ranged option. Also the new ronin card Vial of Rajins breath instead of forked tongue on Itsunagi makes him insanely mobile with +2 move and cloudwalk for one activation. Very scary!

Kaihime is hebimanam.

She can't join the Lords of Izu.

Thank you all, friends!

After additional thinking I’ve decided, that Lords of Izu them isn’t so good to create a warband around it.

So, I’ll test these variants (yes, Kenzo wasn’t in my list, but finally I’ve decided, he’s not so ugly and as well painted will be really good):

1
The Blessed [100 rice]

Ito Kinu [16] + Inducted into the Priesthood [2]
Kyou [16] with Teachings of Yashushi [2]
Sakura [13]
Ito Kenzo [17] with Itsunagi Gambit [1]
Jade Mamba Guard [13] with Muramasa’s Blade [3]
Isas [10]
Event 1: Dark Secrets [2]
Event 2: Orochi’s Shadow [3+1]

Wanna take Satsuki instead of Sakura, but her model... ><
The idea is to weaken as many enemies as possible with Kinu and then slaughter them with Kenzo, Mamba Guard and Isas. And just play Kinu, she’s really playable in the Blessed theme I think)

2
Serpent’s Coil [100 rice]

Ito Itsunagi [25] with Vial of Rajins breath [2]
Ito Mizuki [19]
Haruki [14]
Ishi [14]
Isas [10]
Jade Mamba Guard [13] with Muramasa’s Blade [3]

Perhaps, will change Muramasa’s Blade with something else, but he could really make Mamba Guard more interesting... not sure, if it useful for 16 rice still.

I don't really know your opponent or your gameplay; but I try to help a little. In the first list I don't think the jade mamba is good with the blade: a 16 points model with a single Ki and no Prowess or re-rolls is not so good to me. But the Bodyguard ability is really good since you have 3 Shisai and 1 Samurai that won't to get stucked in a melee that you don't choos to fight. Satsuki is really good as Ki battery by getting from enemies, and accelerate venom is good in a Blessed list that could poison lot of models. I'll try to drop the Murasama and Orochi's Shadow since with 3 Shisai you don't really need other debuff on enemies, you get 7 points in this way; you can include a Child of Oorochi which is good to extend the Shisai's range, do objective, protect your core models and putting in a melee - maybe he would be killed but hey, he's only 7 PA model. Other option could be Akimoto that goes in the frontline spitting venom as much as he could before getting killed. He's only a 6 PA model, but with his poison ranged attack and his feat I find him quite useful; but he's impetuos so you have to kill him asap to benefit from the Teachings of Yashushi (one of the best cards to me). Or, with the points you have, take a look to Forked Tongue and Beneath the Skin: the first allows you to get Sixth Sense that you could use to get camo enemies, the second gives you the opportunity to get terror AND immunize the model from fear. Kenzo would benefit from both, and Kyou too. If want to kill enemies with JMG, I think is a better option consider Takeji (for 2 points more is stronger but he cannot protect other as well as JMG), or Temple Bushi for taking out poisoned enemies. Even Chiyo are stronger against poisoned ones and she has cloudwalk that could really be useful to get enemies in difficult terrains. For the second list, I don't play the most of that models so... I continue to consider the Murasama too expensive on the JMG; I would put the Teachings of Yashushi on Mizuki instead. The JMG could be useful to bodyguard Itsunagi, but he don't really need her - he's quite a killer himself - but consider that he often goes alone to take out the most terrible threat. I suppose that dropping the JMG allows you to get a couple of child of Oorochi: Mizuki could cast Obey and Hypnogaze every turn - she's greedy for ki - and you have a couple of models that could do objectives.
