Starting with Yu Jing

Disclaimer: We’ll update with photos once the Infinity site is back up! 😉 Sorry about the inconvenience!

Hey there, I’m Bobman and I’m bringing you another article in the ‘Starting with’ series. This time we are going to look at the second great power in the Sphere Yu Jing. Yu Jing is the power that grew out of the far east and has a lot of influence from China and Japan, although Japanese citizens are ‘second class’. It has sophisticated technology which shows in its Heavy Infantry and and draws on that Japanese culture for some dangerous hard hitting close combat troops.

This article is meant to take a look at list building and some of the options available. Two of the lists will have the starter set as a base and each a different process behind it to explore different avenues open to the faction, be it flavour, trick or mission focus. With the first I’m going to offer a list that has cost in mind. But before all that lets take a look at the starter set.

ZHANSHI Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (11)
ZHANSHI Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (11)
ZHANSHI Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (11)
CELESTIAL GUARD Combi Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (13)
SHÀNG JÍ Combi Rifle + Light Flamethrower / Pistol, Shock CCW. (37)
DOMARU Boarding Shotgun, E/M Grenades / Pistol, AP CCW. (33)

The stock starter set comes in at 116 points and 0 SWC and includes two HI units, Yu Jings best asset, and they are both capable choices. The Shang Ji is one of my favourite models and the Domaru has gained some interest in vanilla lists with the changes to EM and Martial Arts, not to mention shotguns. You also get the pretty standard three LI and a Celestial guard who has improved WIP. Most of these choices have optional loadouts to choose from such as Paramedics or Hackers if you want to boost the list and you could also proxy the Shang Ji for the Spitfire loadout which has no model currently.
