    If it was the route of a special fireteam with extra bonuses. Possibly fixing limits on it's construction would help balance and theme. For example, each team needs to contain a Power element, a Support element, and a Recon element.

    So;
    Power - Terracotta/Yan Huo
    Support - Hai Dao
    Recon - non-Camo Zhencha

    Still spitballing ideas, obviously.

    One way to make Shang-Ji feel superior would be to unlock a Fireteam: Invincible (essentially a second Haris) which could be Shang-Ji + 2 FTO Invincibles (any two FTO options from any Invincible unit).


    but tbh. im just expecting a couple of mixed cores and mixed duos, maybe something like Shang-Ji counts as Zuyong, something like that.

    I don't think they're gonna add more fireteams or changes for them. Fireteam rules seem to be locked up with HSn3

    I'm not so sure about zuyongs SWC on the starter. we currently have miniature for the Multi and the HMG, the only SWC weapon left is the Misile launcher and we miss the BS, the Combi and the fucking tinbot. They can put all of them on the starter if they want, but that will make it harder for us to get extra combi/BS zuyongs for creating a fireteam. It's more likely to see a Zuyong box or even a couple of zuyongs with comby and then a SWC box with an extra weapon option (like a hacker) or just see the one of the options released as a blister

    The more I think about the starter the less I see how it will be composed. Take into account that the weight of the components set's up the price. A Starter composed only by HI and a big guy? It's price will skyrocket for sure!

    That's part of the reason why I don't think the Invincible Army starter will have a Yan Huo.

    There are some starters now with about the same amount of metal as an all HI starter, especially lighter options like the Zuyong.

    But with all the new reveals, I think there's a good chance that a 3-Zuyong + (insert 3 other S2 HI here) box could work well without being a lot (or even any) more expensive than the existing boxes.

    Hmmm...

    3x Zuyong, 1x Haidao, 1x Zhencha, 1x Liu Xing
    (Possibly substitute one of the last two with a Shang-Ji)
    Depending on which weapons they sprinkle these with, that might be a box you'd want to buy two or even three of. Basically, let's just hope the Haidao doesn't get the sniper if this setup comes true, and I fully expect one of those Zuyong to be toting a Missile Launcher.

    Wasn't there a rumor kicking around that the box from Red Veil was supposed to be the starter?

    I don't think so. It was explicitly said that the Haqq half of Red Veil is also the RTF starter, but nothing was said about the YJ side. Plus I don't think the Hsien will be in IA.

    Well, the Morat starter box has a Sogarat in it, and as beefy as the Morat models are it's a good approximation of the IA starter's weight of metal...

    My guess for the IA starter is still 3x Zuyong combis, Yan Huo MHMG, Liu Xing, and probably the Zhencha.

    Zuyong SWC box would be ML, shottie, and Tinbot.

    Haidao would be a box release.

    Weight isn't as much a consideration as size and number of pieces - it's all about mold wear and tear.

    I doubt 6 heavies would be majorly different in price to a normal starter.

    Blackjacks are significantly more expansive than normal S4 Unit are. Always thought that this is because they require as much metal as TAG does or sth.

    A model's price is affected by many variables, metal, mould space required, mould wear and tear, model parts model parts that cannot be packed in the same bag, and package weight are the most important ones.

    One of the big advantages of 3D sculpting is that design is less important factor to the models price.

    Apparently Carlos teased a new S5 HI model. Mowang? Womang? something like that.

    You mean Mojang?

    Carlos likes to talk a lot about this new unit and that from time to time. Most never see the day of light. So take this FB comment (where the Mowang was mentioned) with a grain of salt folks.

    Hrm...

    Nah, I think this one has isn't just a tease. The Japanese translation is bloody perfect for a unit ostensibly stolen from under the secessionists' noses.

    Wasn't the point of the Daiyokai they couldn't complete it so it had to be S5? I'm a little tired of S5s when YJ is supposed to have the best HIs on the Sphere.

    That Ten no Bushi project.

    It makes sense Yu Jing rebuilt their wrecked Kikuchiyo Project(Daiyokai) from the salvaged Kuraimori labs.

    Perfected by Yu Jing Taste. Mmm.

    I mean, I'd like to see what our take on that Project would be.

    Perhaps we'd actually be able to finish it up properly and make it S2! That, or make it into an S5 brick-o-destruction.

    ...

    Or we screw up the compactability so badly we get a new S6 TAG.
