    BTS6, Tinbot B and Fairy dust might make the linked Shang Ji one of the safest HI assault hackers in the game, it's kind of exciting right?

    Well, something like:

    [​IMG] SHÀNG JÍ Combi Rifle + Light Flamethrower + TinBot B (Deflector L2) / Pistol, Shock CCW. (0 | 40)
    [​IMG] ZHANSHI Hacker (Hacking Device) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 19)
    [​IMG] ZHANSHI (Forward Observer) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 12)
    [​IMG] ZHANSHI Paramedic (MediKit) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 13)
    [​IMG] ZHANSHI HMG / Pistol, Knife. (1 | 19)
    1.5 SWC | 103 Points

    Or:

    [​IMG] SHÀNG JÍ Paramedic (Medikit) Combi Rifle + Light Flamethrower / Pistol, Shock CCW. (0 | 39)
    [​IMG] ZHANSHI Hacker (Hacking Device) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 19)
    [​IMG] ZHANSHI (Forward Observer) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 12)
    [​IMG] ZHANSHI Combi Rifle + Light Grenade Launcher / Pistol, Knife. (1 | 15)
    [​IMG] ZHANSHI HMG / Pistol, Knife. (1 | 19)
    2.5 SWC | 104 Points

    Or:

    [​IMG] SHÀNG JÍ Spitfire / Pistol, Shock CCW. (2 | 42)
    [​IMG] ZHANSHI MULTI Sniper Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (1.5 | 19)
    [​IMG] ZHANSHI Hacker (Hacking Device) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 19)
    [​IMG] ZHANSHI (Forward Observer) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 12)
    [​IMG] ZHANSHI Paramedic (MediKit) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 13)
    4 SWC | 105 Points

    Going in another direction entirely you could do a pretty cool ARO bunker of:

    [​IMG] SHÀNG JÍ Heavy Rocket Launcher, Light Shotgun / Pistol, Shock CCW. (2 | 39)
    [​IMG] ZHANSHI MULTI Sniper Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (1.5 | 19)
    [​IMG] ZHANSHI (Forward Observer) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 12)
    [​IMG] ZHANSHI (Forward Observer) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 12)
    [​IMG] ZHANSHI Lieutenant Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 11)
    3.5 SWC | 93 Points

    Any of those might be fun on the table.

    How about a Zhanshi missile link that reforms a Shang Ji offensive link once the launcher gets clocked-off? Total 2 Shang Ji and 4 Zhanshis?

    So maybe something like this?

    [​IMG] SHÀNG JÍ Heavy Rocket Launcher, Light Shotgun / Pistol, Shock CCW. (2 | 39)
    [​IMG] ZHANSHI Hacker (Hacking Device) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 19)
    [​IMG] ZHANSHI (Forward Observer) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 12)
    [​IMG] ZHANSHI Paramedic (MediKit) Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 13)
    [​IMG] ZHANSHI Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 11)
    [​IMG] SHÀNG JÍ Spitfire / Pistol, Shock CCW. (2 | 42)
    4.5 SWC | 136 Points

    Putting up the Heavy Rocket Launcher for first turn AROs and then swapping to the Spitfire to advance to the objectives?

    Unless you can take more than one Shang Ji in the same unit (and we might not be able to) it'll be impossible to lose a Missile Launcher Zhanshi without losing your 5-trooper bonus with it.

    I think we already have a precedent with Vet Kazaks that means you can stuff as many wildcards into a link as you can without breaking the original link restrictions. So I guess you would need at least 2 Zhanshis to form the core.

    We'll see.

    I'm not 100% confident that I'd assume that totally unlimited numbers as well as attaching to any Fireteam is always going to be present.

    Wildcard is a nice start on the Shang Ji.

    Pretty sure they need more, though.

    Wildcard, NCO, potentially some unique wargear? I'm a fan of grenades (of any fashion).

    This is assuming it's not one specific profile of Shang Ji that's a Wildcard. For all we know it's just the basic Shang Ji load out with the ability to join a fireteam.

    KHD, Tinbot, flamethrower and a points reduction and I would field him all day long.

    I'm hoping it's the unit like VKazaks and not a specific profile. That would be a huge missed opportunity.

    We won't get that. Optimistically you'll get two of those things together.

    Santiagos did (except the flamethrower), and they are not "the HI faction"

    And this is Yu Jing, not PanO. Cross faction comparisons are never fair.

    Deflector 1 on a Hacker with BTS 3 is a lot different from Deflector 2 on a Hacker with BTS 6.

    But it MIGHT happen. You don't really need it on one unit 'though when you can Wildcard in the Deflector to join another Hacker.
