Kaihei Pack List - viable?

Forums: 

Hey all, new player here
I love wolves in everything, and I try to build lists based around them if I can, so I'm looking at building a savage wave list for 35 rice

1 Kaihei Alpha - 9 rice
5 Kaihei - 25 rice
 

leaves me 1 rice left over, anyone tried this before, know any themes that go nicely with it and have any idea if it is good, great or utterly useless?

if this list isnt viable, ill probably through a kaihei pack (10 rice for 2) with my alpha list for 35 rice
Rashka, the devastator - 13 rice
Zuba, the all seeing - 12 rice
2 Kaihei - 10 rice

Ive already adjusted rice costs for the oni thanks to the alpha theme

Any help id greatly appreciated

Thanks, Bai

You can only have a miximum of 4x Kaihei as there are only two  wound tracks on each card. Ordinarily you'd  only be allowed the number onthe single  card (2) but they've included a second card (Kaihei 2) so that you can have another 2x Kahei in your  pack.

Hope this helps. (",)

Kaihei packs are good, I won yesterday with :

Kahei alpha

2 kaihei

Zuba, Trapeng and a Brute (we usually play 42 pts games)

In my opinion, you have to play a complete pack, with an Alpha, who provides a huge support to his minions. Group activation and coordinated attack are powerful. Without him, Kaihei become very less interesting.

Not used it yet, but I have the following at 42 rice:

  • Kaihei Alpha
  • Kaihei
  • Kaihei
  • Kaihei
  • Kaihei
  • Giant Cave Bat
  • Nightwing Swarm

A bit of a two-trick pony. Good movement and relies on Immobilise and Sweep attacks for the hounds to get big bonuses in combat. 5 activations. Probably use the 1000 Eyes (?) theme card. Only benefit is the darkness turn 1, but that'll be nice.

I was looking at doing something similair. Would no one recommend yushA? Surely he's built for such a list.

Only issue of it in that Theme List is that Nightwing Swarm can't be taken (its a Swarm, not an animal so restriction hits it). Also for darkness you'll need at least 1 Bakemono, but thats only 4 Rice so its something.

Also I didn't realize you could have up to x4 Kaihei!
