Sure, but he always kinda felt odd there. He's Yu Jing's tactical genius and supreme commander. Why is he slinking around with the military police and not leading the Invincible Army to glory?

It is the other way around really, the Imperial Secret Service, who are not really military police, but militarised police plus secret services, do not allow him to stick around with anybody else.

Probably for protection/ secret services reasons.

Considering Sun Tze has a similar suit of armor to Zuyongs, I REALLY expected him to be in this list so he could link with them.
Gotta say I’m disappointed he isn’t included in this sectorial.


Huh, I didn't even realise that, nice spot.

Also, it's been confirmed that the hacker and MSV Spitfire order sergeants can't link. Which in an era where seemingly everything else can makes zero sense.

Well thats what I meant when I said "Military Police". I mean it in the Gestapo/Secret Police/KGB/etc... way. Not "Members of the military who act as Cops for the Military personnel".

It still doesn't explain his lack of presence in IA. He is the best general Yu Jing has. He should be leading the army. If he needs some ISS protection, make Crane agents AVA1-2 in IA and let them form a special fireteam Haris with him.

Otherwise, it just makes Yu Jing look stupid for wasting their god-tier general kicking down doors and checking papers.

Also, not fully under Imperial control, being an ALEPH re- creation and all that; thus he need monitoring . He and Saladin are getting up to something together too, or so the background hints.

I mean, on the one hand, yay starter!

On the other hand those are a lot of profiles that aren't really great within the sectorial. The Zuyong combi is needed, the Daoying MSR is great, and even if I would have preferred the KHD Haidao I don't mind the one with access to CoC. But the Liu Xing hacker is generally pants, and the two other Zuyong profiles are not ones you're likely to see in your average Zuyong link due to how much the sectorial relies on order shenanigans.

So expect a lot of proxying even after the starter drops. Hopefully the models are at least nice looking.

The Boarding Shotgun was a strange choice given that it is only on 1 profile out of 14. Multi-rifle would have made more sense as it could more easily stand in as a Combi. The Missile Launcher would also be more fitting as an HMG.

But hopefully the eventual box set will fix that. With luck it will be 2 Combi-rifles, HMG, and Multi-rifle.

I'm not particularly concerned with being polite when calling people out. When I think they're being full of gak.

Painting your models is not being full of gak (unless you're trying to game a 3 colour minimum). You're just being a dick here (@5deadly).
I don't agree that those are tanletop standard (I paint to tabletop standard, so I would know), but there is also nothing wrong with painting to a tabletop standard. Miniatures for gaming do not have to be painted to top display quality for someone to be proud of their work. Painted to whatever level one can or wants to participate in that part of the hobby is better than grey (or gaming a 3 colour minimum). It should be encouraged, not badmouthed by an donkey-cave like you.

@mastiff nice work.
I'm not saying your post is of the quailty I'm defending in my rant, just wanted to make that point.

Calm down, pretty sure he must have been joking...

I mean, if those are tabletop standard then most everyone else is just chucking paint in the general direction of miniatures.

Y’all need to relax. Leave the battles on the tabletop. This is such an angsty thread, I thought pics would be the least likely content to start another fight. Ha!

So the ALEPH RPG supplment has gone out to the KSer backers and there's a few more Reproductions added to the fluff:

Einstein
Mark Twain
Tchaikovsky
and the first confirmed Fictional person Sherlock Holmes who's gone rogue due to the various governments relying too much on him to solve all their crimes instead of just doing the work themselves so he left

Pretty sure none of those will ever make it into either game but the fictional Reproduction opens up a lot of possibilities for CB.

Realistically the premise of the reproductions is that they're all "fictional".

They are "fictional" in the sense that they aren't actually the same people. Joan isn't the actual Jeanne De Arc from the Middle Ages. She is an artificially created personality based on fictionalized and romanticized accounts of how Jeanne De Arc was. But Jeanne was still a real person at some point. Sherlock Holmes is the first Recreation that isn't based on a real person.

But given that very little exists historically to document what most of these people were actually like, in practical terms there really isn't any difference between recreating a historical person and a completely fictional one.
