Bikou card?

I only just now realized that Bikou has separate rules for KKZ versus Ryu.

How do I get ahold of the KKZ version of her card?

I guess as a followup question, where does it say I'm allowed to include Bikou in KKZ warbands?

there are two sculpts of bikou, the one in the store has the ryu profile. the second is avalible at events and online during events and comes with both cards.

Ah, okay, cool.. Thanks for the tip!

Is there a way to know when events are about to occur so I can put in an order? I feel like I maybe just missed an event, but I have no idea how frequent they are.

Sweet, thanks! I'll try to be prepared and grab Bikou then. Are there pictures of the alt sculpt anywhere?

One thing I'm wondering, with Bikou's 1" unique effect movement ability, can Bikou disengage from being in base to base with enemy models?

Because it hasn't specified that you can't leave btb using unique effects in the main rules nor in the unique effect's text, on the card, I play it as possible.

By mathematics + game rules = if you move 1" away from b2b then you are exactly 1" away, and that is considered to be "within 1 inch" which means you are in the enemy's ZoC. Bikou's special skill says she can't move into b2b or an enemy's ZoC.

So no? Because technically shed be ending the move in an enemy's ZoC?

There are circumstances where that wouldn't be the case (a 2nd model attacks and turns the opponent's model to face away from bikou, for example, in which case the restriction wouldn't apply enabling bikou to be placed outside of btb ready for a surprise attack.)

Exactly. And one that I really could have used last week.

That's a good point.  So by extension, she could move a full inch at such an angle that she lands <1" away from model, NOT in b2b, but totally out of its ZoC.

Interesting...

It is available here in the online store during events also. That's how I got mine (ordered it when some event was happening somewhere in the world).

We will be at Adepticon  from the 23rd-26th March so she will be available on the web site during that period.

Hi Farseerixirvost, I know this thread is a little old now but as you commented about not being able to land within the enemy models ZoC that you were in btb with. Neither Bikou nor the enemy have a ZoC until after the next activation:

"Models in BtB with Enemy models have no ZoC. If the Enemy model(s) leaves BtB then the model’s ZoC does not return until the end of the current activation."

As it is a start phase effect then no model has activated yet so I would say it makes sense that Bikou can go wherever she fits within the 1" but not into any other nearby enemy model's ZoC.

If you're not seeing her with a monetary cost, log in with your forum account first.
