Played a game verses my mates Cult list both just using starter sets. Mission was catch the kami. Most of the games I have played have been against the Prefecture and have little experience aginst these guys.
Basically I got slaughtered. Main issues were the marionette and the spell "look into the void". His good dice helped with one charge by a Kairai taking out Master Ekusa. Rolled a 6 got his trigger and that was it, yikes seemed pretty easy.
Regarding "look into the void" apparently the only way to counter the spell (apart from rolling high) is to look away by rotating your models 180 to face away. There doesn't seem to be any benefit from cover when facing this. It made it then hard for me to charge as you need LOS. It also meant we getting caught from behind a lot when I was charged.
The Marionette controlled a model and effectively took it out of the game very easily and was threatening to do it again (with 6 Ki). Are we playing it right that the player can create one with heaps of Ki which then becomes its wounds? It tries to take a model over with most of my models having ki of 2 against his of 6 so me losing everytime. So if it was created with ki of 6 when he tries to take my model over (with ki of 2) it would be an oppossed ki test of him rolling 6 dice agianst my 2
Am I missing something here?
