Synergy Edit

Alternative/s Edit

How to Counter Edit

Playstyle Edit

An adaptive Samurai whose role changes depending on how he uses his Ki.

, like the Tengu Hokibo, prefers to stay central to his allies so they can benefit from his Kenjutsu tutelage. Combatively he is a well versed warrior who prefers to engage aggressive enemies and counter their attacks with his blades to devastating effect.

Tactics Edit

Blade Master Edit

Typical of the Samurai, Akio has Critical Strike (which has a 16% chance of removing its target outright).

However Aiko also has Combo Attack (0). Should you be face a durable foe, or be attacking a heavily penalized target, consider this alternative to go for pure damage instead of the rare chance of succeeding an execution.

Regardless, don't forget that Akio can burn -2 Ki to force his opponent to re-roll one of their defense dice (aka via gaininmg Feint).

Defensive Offense Edit

Should Akio be attacked, consider your third special - Counter Attack Defense. It may burn a dice but, by commiting everything to defense, you will likely avoid the attack and (provided the enemy did attempt to attack you) attack back as well.

Instant Defense Edit

To further the effectiveness of Akio's defense, after the enemy has rolled their dice Akio can burn -3 Ki to then discard the enemy's highest attack dice (since he can gain Impenetrable Defense as an Instant feat).

Even thought the dice is discarded, the enemy still counts as having commited a dice to attack - meaning if that was the only dice they used they will have an Attack SL of 0 vs your defense (making your counter-attack all the more deadly).

Kenjutsu Training Edit

Kenjutsu Instruction Tokens is a major part of Akio and its power is often underestimated.

First this is an Active Ki feat meaning, provided Akio has the Ki to use it AND you are the active player, any model within 6" of him can gain a Token AND use it as part of their action (since using the token is an instant feat)!

Second these Tokens stack (there is no limit to how many you can have). With a model with four tokens of these tokens could jump up from being prone to get into melee, then unleash a Powerful Attack for (0) with Armor Piercing!

Synergy Edit

Weakness Edit

Akio may have a decent defense, but Counter-Attack Defense only works if the enemy added an Attack Dice against him. He may be able to attack two targets for one action, but he has no defense if enemies group up on him.
