Eh. I don't think there's a cap to how many men a general or great general can bring. It all depends on the emperor or the minister of war.

 

Unlike in modern wars, where you have war machines and electronic tech, ancient wars were purely driven by man power. The general probably asks for a certain number of men, the minister of war either approves or negotiates the number, then the emperor approves the final allocation.

 

Case in point: Duke Hyou had a different number of soldiers in Wei. Ouki had a different number of soldiers in Bayou. Mo Gou had a different number of soldiers against Renpa

 

Finally, capping the number of soldiers a general can have is a strategic disadvantage. If the enemy knows how many people you are sending to the chess board of death, they can plan ahead.

probably it's more like:

>great general is assign to an area/war

>they are given some troops depending on the war/area's size/importance

>general is assign to commander in chief of certain war/area.

>GG assigns the number of troops to be held by each general

 

I think general has at least 10k troops, but it probably will be less than 100k

Are you asking what material, i.e., steel?

 

Most likely was steel or anotyher hard element.  They needed to be very strong, but not too heavy; however armor was heavy back in the day.

i dont think steel had been discovered yet, so it might still be bronze.

Kyoukai said she want to have Shin's child. :D

 

and then ten stasrted to rage hahaaha.

.

Kyoukai already said that she will never abandon Shin and the HSU, so don't worry.

Ch. 471: Tenacious P

wow this is getting so intense! It was time that Shin got some action like that, by the way does anyone know what they used for the armors?

Stop making my dick confused Shin !

wat

AT some point I see them both fighitng for great general but Idk if Kyoukai will stay with the HSU until SHin becomes a great general or what.

does anyone know how many men shin will be able to have once he becomes a general? is it caped at 10k or can a general have as many as the king deems that he needs?

general can go about 50k CMIIW 

great general can go 100k++++++++++

I know Keisha is a brilliant strategist, but was s/he ever a good fighter??

 

We have never seen Keisha fight, but I would expect him to be decently strong, granted he seems more like an "instinctual strategist."

 

IT seems like he tries to make plays happen by instinct, but he isn't the type of General as "Duke Hyou" was that is a fighter, the same with Moubu.

 

Some like to fight on the front lines, and some sit back and watch.

 

%The interesting thing is that Ribukou is actually a strategist who has fought at the front lines many times.  He likes to sit back now, but he doesn't mind leading an army.5

 

I hope keisha isn't a puss, but I don't want Shin to win so easily..  The issue is Shin is hurt, and Keisha is at full HP......5

 

 

Watch Kyoukai fly over and kill steal Keisha from Shin.. LOL.

I know Keisha is a brilliant strategist, but was s/he ever a good fighter??

I guess i was wronng..  Damn.  Guess Shin's unit can handle large wars now.  WIll this be the defining moment of general?

 

I figured this might be a time of strife, but I guess he's just moving forward.

 

 

I also forgot this is an 8k man unit, and not 4-5k.

 

It seems that ten is able to handle a lot of men at once, especially using both armies to attack, or possibly Kyoukai is starting to go off on her own, since we already saw it happen in this battle.   Maybe we will see a split in these 2 groups at some point?

 

AT some point I see them both fighitng for great general but Idk if Kyoukai will stay with the HSU until SHin becomes a great general or what.

--------------------

 

I also forgot to mention this, but does anyone think En is going to grow stronger?

 

I thought it was interesting when he got some spotlight in these recent chapters, and was tasked with a big mission.

 

 

It's prett amazing that En was just a palace messenger who brought Shin to Ouki.  He ended up training wqith SHin and became the first lieutenant really.

 

I feel En will continue to grow more important in the show, because in reality he wasn't all that useful I guess, but he does know how to control a battle, since he did it with SHin.

 

 

 

I thought of this because the front cover is showing En in the center, which means he is very important this arc, imo[

Man so much spoiler in the comments section...

 

 

As for shin making it to a General, doesn't he still have to hit the 5000 man unit mark first?  They said that Wang Ben didn't become a general, because 5k is the defining point that will make or break you as a general...

 

I have afeeling that they might experience some tragedy after being promoted to 5k, just like when they lost Kyoukai, and needed a strategist....

Spoiler

 

 

As to the comment about the glaive being Ouki's, Shin hasn't mastered a glaive enough to use Ouki's and I doubt Ouki's glaive would break, unless he was fighting against someone with as strong a blade.   Seeing as he was one of the strongest in the world, I'm assuming the glaive is of the highest quality, from one of the best in the world, or in Qin.  I guess it would be hard to sell a high quality item to someone of another kingdom, but allies ftw? :P  still....

 

As for the newest chapter...

Spoiler

 

This was as good chapter, but yeah it could go waaaaaaaaay faster.

 

Half of the panels these days is just a bunch of soldier blurs fighting it out....  WE can only seee so many of them until it starts getting annoying :P

isn't he already 5k? kvukai is 3k and togehter the hi shin unit is 8k so shouldn't shin be 5k already?

 wait didnt shit already hit 5k man commander? lol

it wasn't Ouki's though. Shin was using that for training so he could get used to glave. Ouki's glave is with Duke Hyou's shield.

Ah, I right, I forgot about that. Phew ...

Kinda sad we do not see the other core elements of the Hi Shin unit anymore.

I miss their tribal scouts and the sword nut unit.

Get his head chopped off Shin ! really such a great chapter huh .. and kyoukai fighting ryoutou is predicted as well .. it was good that the Kanki unit that was dispatched to be with the Hi Shin unit also helped to delay Keisha ..

 

Now lets wonder what gonna happen next ?

next? next what? (all theory)

 

Kisui can't handle the troops losing morale because of Keisha's death (probably one of general with highest reputation other than riboku/houken)

 

Kisui probably ask for villager safety and whatever shits in exchange for a bloodless surrender

 

Kanki either decline or still do the pillaging 

 

Kisui is angry, and is taken under Riboku and aim for the last position in 3 heavens to revenge or because of regret (he might be able to win the war if he managed to control the troops)

 

Kanki got promoted to great general

Shin reports Kanki to Sei

somehow the only way i can see it now is shin gonna take keisha head and after the war he will be promoted to general for his accomplishment

 

what i dont know is, when keisha's killed by shin, what about the war? do qin instantly win 'cause they kill zhao's commander? what about kisui and co?

 

hmm...

have they switched to releasing bi-weekly? they waited a week on the last chapter and no upload today so waiting a week for this chapter too?

 

From their blog:

 

Until a reliable raw source somehow turns up, we’re all sadly in the same boat of f5-ing for the latest release.

omg these last few weeks have been such cockteases. go shin, get that general title.

It's only matter of time. BTW I hear somewhere that this manga is actually in half-way point so... next 10 years will be that how you define it.
