    So I managed to get a few games played this weekend with YJ as both invincible army and vanilla and I thought I'd share what occured and my initial thoughts.

    The game with Invincible army:

    I'm by no means saying this is a list I'd take to a competitive event but its has a fair quantity of new bits in it that I wanted to try, how did it do? I was playing against vanilla pano

    The Zhuyong link dominated, it took the most orders (being in the centre of the board without actually spending any regular orders, it absorbed a lot of punishment,

    Tai sheng is fantastic, basically an auto include bringing NCO and a deflector L2 to the party with a sprinkle of BS 14, in this game she dropped an Uhlan and Joan of arc.

    Zhuyong tactical awareness HMG, is as good as it sounds.

    Haidao, did well but was one of my casualties, didn't get to do much killer hacking (did have opportunity, just the shotgun and all the other linked shots were better).

    Mowang, suppression fire multi kept heads down in reaction, swept a drop bear which was clearly meant for the Zencha and got a long range kill with the flamenspeer, made a very good sweeper and reaction piece especially with the flexibility of NCO.

    Zencha, pushed buttons, laid mines, missed a DEP shot in a combined order with the mowang against the Uhlan which would have been a propaganda worthy victory, solid unit with a good toolbox IMO, had the orders to recamo

    Daoying, did exactly what was asked, which was be an unassailable camo marker Lt who fed the other units.

    Special mention to the Zhuyong BSG who knocked two wounds of joan before being turned into a kebab by the mentioned opposing party.

    Game two, Generic YJ (vs Generic YJ)

    Mix and match

    Again not something hyper competitive, basic idea was to add in a sui jian for some speed and some smoke for obvious reasons and have a stronger midfield.

    The sui jian tore off down a flank and performed predictably well, the Mowang then pushed up as a suppression piece

    The Mowang died this game as my opponent had an extremely well placed ninja, the ninja didn't actually do much perse however Lunah took two wounds off the Mowang trying to shoot the ninja off over three orders! (my monk had been executed by a daofei at this point and my covering ruishi had been knocked out so this was genuinely my best option) anyway the now NWI mowang won a few more firefights with Wu ming and Zhuyong before going down to the Daofei (but not easily). It did extermely good work.

    The Daoying loses some of it's potency without NCOs, in turns 1 and 2 I could plough those orders into the Mowang, but without him in turn 3 all I could realistically do was use the LT orders to get the daoying into a scoring zone, definately worth taking a sniper or hacker in generic I think if you're not running 2 NCOs.

    As for the rest of the list, the Guilangs had excellent synergy with the Mowang (they actually between then killed the daofei LT), lunah gave pretty excellent fire support, the Rui shi was a threat but I managed to leave it with a 26" firelane which cost me a firefirefight with a TR HMG bot, the Wu-ming did typically well supporting the assault and skirmish units. Sui-jian and Mowang paired are an extremely good combo

    Excellent stuff there sir! Thanks a lot for sharing! This is actually getting me excited for IA after just dropping lots of cash on Ikari, damn you!

    What would you say your MVPs were? The Mowang sounds pretty badass!

    Both games it was definately the Mowang as a stand out solo piece. In the first game that 5 man HI link did exactly what I asked of it (which was everything), the two definately complement each other extremely well, the mowang flamenspeered or multirifled things which could have caused the 5 man link problems
