    They are good in melee against poorly armored foot soldiers (cav will tear them up) but their real use is for special ops missions (like crossing bridges first, assinating the ennemy general etc...). Their greatests strengths are stealtha and speed (fastest foot soldiers), use them.

    The best part of MI is the Sengoku SP campaigns, that part of the game is more than excellent.

    They are good for sneak attacks because unless being very close to them or unless they move, you can't see them...

    BN are good in bridge crossings to get in behind the enemy and wait for your attack. If you go early with them (before battle has commenced)then the AI will use cavalry against you and you are dead.
    Put them in position behind the Taisho and wait for battle to commence and in the confusion you can reap havoc.
    They are also great in attacking castles. Just make sure that they are not the only unit you send in as they become the Taisho and get a big white blob telling the AI where you are - did that once! - they can stand in front of the castle gates and trade it with archers and with their ammo supply they will take out the entire castle - seriously easy. Totally changes castle assaults once you get them. They also pick up honour so quickly becasuse of the small numbers in the group, and honour assists accuracy (I think??).
    Personally I never bother with the Kensai - they get tired too quickly and are mincemeat for BN - but I love the BN.
    Sorry this went on so long.
