Lord Kozlov, Viscount of Scarsgrad
Koslov is a man at home in the harsh northern reaches of Khador, a landscape dominated by ice and snow. His family has a long history of service to the Iron Fangs, and Kozlov himself underwent the demanding training regimen of that distinguished fighting tradition. His warcaster talent and combat prowess make him a great asset to the Khadoran military, but his heart remains with the people of his ancestral home. Walking the line between his obligations to the Khadoran Army and his duties as a noble is difficult, but Kozlov’s loyalty to the Motherland is unquestionable.

Lord Kozlov, Viscount of Scarsgrad in a nutshell
Typical Strategy & Army
His main method of winning is ...Placeholder.
For example: "using her feat turn to get a melee/ranged/spell assassination" "attrition then win on scenario" "board control then win on scenario" "sending a jack in, to beat the enemy warcaster's face into pulp" "etc"
He is able to support a wide variety of lists, with 2 speed buffs (Tactical Supremacy and his feat) a damage buff (Fury), access to pathfinder and surprisingly tough with good defensive stats and steady while able to mix it up in combat when needed with his axe.
I would suggest a combined arms approach, A couple units and a few jacks.
With Chosen Ground upkept all game so your jacks just do not care about terrain. He lacks a to hit buff, so look more to units that hit well on their own Doom Reaver Swordsmen or Great Bears of the Gallowswood and support that can help with this, i.e. Greylord Ternion, Koldun Lord
Man of War work well with him, especially the shock troopers as he brings a number of speed buffs. Being able to shield march up 9"(4" base+2" desperate pace+ 3" Reposition) with out the feat gets them right up the board and then when in position swap to fury and really bring the pain as each one will swing at PoW 17 (18 on the CA).
Drawbacks, Downsides, & Bad Match-Ups
His main down side is he is a bit straight forward. He has some of the hitting power of The Butcher, some of the support of Irusk, some of the jack support of Harkevich. But they can all do their respective stchik better. He's a jack of all trades, master of none, but better than a master of one.
