New player!

Hi, I am going to be a new player for clan Ito starting from this fall. I have played a demo of the game and I enjoyed his mechanics.
Any suggestion to start plaing this faction? The models that I like most of Ito clans are Kaihime,
Kenzo, Mizuki, Saburo, Masunagi. Wich shall I buy? Do I really need the starter? I am going to play with at least other 2 guys from my zone that have the starters of syndicate , tengu and yurei.
Thank you in advance for every suggestions

Hi and welcome to a great game!

Ito is a Samurai clan, meaning they will reliably do their job, and are in the offensive end of the spectrum due to their poisons and speed. The most common way to play them is to pick two samurais of choice and then fill up with Ashigarus and Hebi to support this. If you want a control feature to this add a pair of Shaisai or Mizuki and the Acolyte (or the incoming Childen of Orcohi).

The starterbox suffers due to Itsunagi being overcosted, Akimoto being weak and impeteous and Sakura the worst Shisai, yet if you pick up the card packs for Ito you get a better version of the snakeman and there´s a theme that powers up Shisais. The temple Bushis are good staples and fillers. Another good filler is Hitoshi and the snake birds.

The list you give over models you like is actually almost a ready warband. I´d suggest pick either Masunagi or Kaihime and keep Kenzo. Mizuki is great if you bring the acolyte, but costs alot, so you probably can´t build a good force with her and two Samurais because you need about 6-8 models in this game. Better pick a Samurai you like (suggest Kenzo) add Mizuki + Acolyte and Ashigarus/Hebis or two Samurais plus the latter.

Unfortunately no on the tokens. This is one of the major things the community wants :) Good luck in your quest to reign over Jwar (except that the Black Eagle will take revenge and cast down al the usurpers in the end of course ;))
