Bakemono Spearmen



Mothers often warn their children whilst young 'don’t wander off or the Bakemono will get you!' said more in jest than warning.
Little did they know that the monsters of fable would soon become reality.When in numbers the Bakemono appear fearless and swarm forward from the shadows, a tide of hate intent on drowning those before them.
The will of the brave faltering and the sky darkening is often a prelude to their appearance.

Spearmen are another cheap and cheerful 'Horde' unit that can fit into any list. Reach is extremely useful in dissuading attacks, and if ignored can allow for some cheeky damage. Bakemono Spearmen have killed reckless Samurai on more than one occasion. Like Raiders, they combo well with Archers and Boomers, and you almost always want one between your second row (Ranged and Support pieces) and the enemy.


  • Reach forces your opponent to be more cautious when attacking a Spearmen
  • The most generalist 'Horde' Bakemono
  • Low cost, flexible, and disposable. Do not be afraid to use your Bakemono in suicidal ways if it stops your opponent from scoring


  • Like all other 'Horde' Bakemono, they pay a 2-3 Rice additional cost to use "Summon from the Shadows"
  • Reach is a moot point when Frightened
