Tactics Edit

Counter Intelligence Edit

Kouhei's Prediction is often underestimated feat until players understand its application. For -2 Ki your opponent must nominate one of their models, which they must activate next if able. This seems minor until you realize this Ki feat can be used anytime you are the active player (i.e.: Kouhei pays the Ki, but doesn't have to be the active model) AND before you choose which model to activate.

This offers incredible application and can seriously destroy your opponent's plans if you act correctly. Did they nominate a model that looks like it wants to attack one of your Ninja? Reposition that Ninja and leave their attacker in the dust! Did they choose a model in range of a scenario objective? Send a Ninja to intercept and make them re-consider their move!

A lot of the strength of Prediction will come from a player's familiarity with the game, but in the right hands its a powerful tool.

Rail of Steel Edit

While her ability to gather intel is useful, Kouhei's infamy comes from her skill with her Kunai. Being Light Footed with a Lightweight weapon means she can move through difficult terrain and make a ranged attack without suffering any movement penalty.

While Kouhei only brings 3 Kunai on any mission, for -2 Ki she can throw all three as a single Ranged Attack (by gaining Rapid Fire) and choose her target after throwing each one - allowing her to throw her second and third knives at the same target, divide her shots, or even change her mind and keep a blade for later.

Final it needs to be noted that multiple knives thrown at a single surprised target each gain the benefit of surprise (since enemies surprised by a Ranged attack don't turn to face their attacker - meaning all following attacks also benefit from surprise). And given Kouhei is an Assassin, that can result in some serious injury.

Attachments Edit

I'll Stick to Mine Edit

While most Ninjas welcome a Ranged Attack Attachment, Kouhei is not one. Her Ammo drops everytime she makes a Ranged Attack - weather its from her innate attack or from an Attachment. Thus Blind and Hullicinogenic Bomb should be assigned to someone else (and don't let her have Shuriken - her Kunai do +1 more damage).

Disguise Edit

Kouhei wants to get behind her targets, and Disguise will help her do this by avoiding all Ki-1 Enemies. Her disguise can still be broken by the enemies, and will end as soon as she attacks, but Kouhei is all about setting up an explosive turn of death so this works quite well to her playstyle.

Grappling Hook Edit

Having Flank to get behind the enemy to unleash a Surprise Kunai barrage is quite nifty. Of course this also penalizes you by not being able to use Prediction while Kouhei is abscent, and wise enemies can counter a Flank if they know what they are doing. Even so, there is definate merit to this (especially if Kouhei is chosen to be your VIM).

Synergy Edit

Yuto Edit

Distraction works great with Kouhei since, like her Prediction, it can be used anytime you are the active player (though the target needs to be within 6" of Yuto). Use it to have an enemy turn their back to Kouhei, then activate her to take them out with her Kunai.
