I think it's safe to say Moubou will show Kanmei who's boss. So much anger simmering in him for years, waiting to explode.
>>
>>100118415

Yep Moubu has already shown that he is not totally ignorant in tactics but I'm still waiting for him to show his strength : The Charge !
>>
>>100119141
so moubos only using tactics so that he doesnt have to use tactics?
>>
Dammit OP; dont put spoilers in the very first post and mention "kingdom" somewhere, so that people can find it in the catalog.
>>
>>100119562

well put!

>>100118016

The main issue for me is, I don't see Li Mu / Riboku really falling to anyone right now. Tou can beat Karin maybe, Moubu Kanmei, Ousen Ordo, Kanki Gohoumei and Duke Hyou that spider dude maybe, but who can really compete against Riboku?
>>
>>100119741
Well, what's his name, Shoheineken? The Chief of Military Affairs. That guy can compete with Riboku on the board. That's what got this whole coalition started in the first place. Riboku is too full of himself, he thinks he can't lose.
>>
>>100119741
>but who can really compete against Riboku?
The oldest general on Qin. The only man from the past era. The one man that taught everything to Mou Bu.
>>
>>100120166

well, isn't Ouki...like..dead..?
>>
>>100120572
I'm talking about the one guy that both Kanki and Ousen called boss. The great rival of Renpa that was able to defeat him the last time they fought each other.

Why don't they just bypass the pass? They could just send a portion from Zhao and Chu armies to slip through.

Man, i want more.
>>
So when are the mountain tribes going to show up and save the day?
>>
>>100121078
Because that would be goddamn difficult. I'm not gonna say if they CAN do it or not, for all I know they're already sneaking some soldiers around, but soldiers need food and water and a camp and a lot of others things, and for that you need supplies. For a siege you need not just supplies but also a supply route. And if you sneak too many soldiers around then you lose the engagement at the pass, meaning you get hit by the returning armies. It's the type of move that Riboku pulled against Ouki: Dangerous and difficult. But they DO have Riboku, so it wouldn't surprise me if he attempts it. But it's not a "why don't they just" situation. One bad move and it's nothing but thousands of dead soldiers, as well as the loss of any talented officers they sent to oversee it all.

For those of us who actually know history, Li Mu is killed by his own country because Qin convinced a bunch of high ranking officials to tell Zhao's king that Li Mu was planning a revolt.

At that time, that was something so dishonoring that Li Mu's very existence in history could have been covered up completely.
>>
>>100121946
I'm more curious on the invasion of Chu.
>Commanding 600,000 men into battle

How many kilometres is that when they're gathered and lined up before battle.
>>
>>100119741
Would be retarded to have all these alliance commanders killed. This is not the final arc and there are many battles against the several states to come.
>>
>>100120743

I like Mou Gou too but no one considers him to be a "Great Rival to Renpa". Mou Gou's specialty is to find and nurture talent like Kanki and Ousen, who surpass him in everyway.

Mou Gou is probably the best one suited for garrison duties since he's the sure-hand type who doesn't fall into traps/squander any advantages.
>>
>>100122245
But Shin had far less in his campaign against Chu. And he wont participate in the second one
>>
>>100122326
And that went really smooth
>>
>>100122245

They aren't going to deploy all 600,000 into 1 battle.

They would most likely have large detachments and large reserves. A front line can only be so long. Better to have large reserves that you can use to rotate troops when the frontline gets exhausted, overwhelmed.
>>
>>100122448
I know but the sight of all 600k marching/gathered must be awe-inspiring.

>I'll never lead an army into battle
>>
To the RAW anons: Who will be the new Han commander? Or will the Han troops retreat from the Qin campaign?
>>
Was it ever explained why Xin never wears armour?
>>
>>100123038
But he does now

You now send in a force of 300k men into a war.

Choose your Commander in Chief and another 8 person under him.
Who do you pick.

Safe to say she probably have 100k troop at her disposal.

Maybe she'll lead 40k+ relief force

In reality, a guy like Mou Gou (as portrayed in the manga) is the best of all, because one man can't have all the talent in the world. A man who can find and use others with talent, he can have a lot more talent at his beck and call. Mou Gou would have lost to Renpa without his two generals Kanki and Ousen, sure. But it would've taken a Better Than Riboku-tier general to defeat Renpa without help, Riboku says so himself. In fact, that's a theme of all Taoist and Taoism-influenced writings and philosophies, that the greatest ability of an individual is to recognize and pool together the abilities of MANY individuals, and set them at the tasks they're most suited for. That's what made the God of War guy, Sei's grandfather, into a "great" warrior and leader, he found six amazingly talented guys and set them free to do what they did best.

Damnit anon, this is war, not love. You're getting them mixed up again.

Would you watch Ancient Chinese armies vs Roman Legionnaires?
Featuring all the famous generals of course
>>
>>100127088
No, just would be retarded.
>>
>>100127088
Nah, the Romans would get violated by sheer number
>>
>>100127518

Those numbers are ridiculously exaggerated. Like the Sparta 300 battle.
>>
>>100127518
At least in the Warring States it would be fair.
During that time the romans had multiple 60k armies as well if they really needed them, like against that faggot hannibal.

Maybe Imperial Han would have numerical advantage.
>>
There's just no end to how based the Qin generals are.
>>
>>100127088
That would be silly.

If they make it somewhat realistic, the Chinese would win easily.
>>
>>100128080
>If they make it somewhat realistic, the Roman would win easily.

Agreed.
>>
>>100128080
Why? Is tactics? Numbers? Equipment? Plot Armor?
Lets just approximately say 120k fighting on each side on a grassy plain. How would they perform? Even match? One-sided?
>>
>>100127941
What after this war?

How will they build tension in future wars, when even all of china united gets so thouroughly raped by Qin?
And there will be at least 2 other war arcs before the unification campaigns.
>>
>>100123815
Jesus. 5000 commander man?
>>
>>100128184
Very unlikely.
The Chinese had larger numbers, better military technology, on average better generals, etc.
>>
>>100127868
>that faggot hannibal
That faggot who's one of the greatest commanders of all time?
>>

>Why? Is tactics? Numbers? Equipment? Plot Armor?
All of that

>Lets just approximately say 120k fighting on each side on a grassy plain. How would they perform? Even match? One-sided?

One-sided Qin victory.

Experienced generals, experienced and well trained troops, those crossbows (that for some reasons are not important in this manga)...

They tend to be underrated because people usually don't know about them (same with the ancient Indian Kingdoms).
>>
Damm Kanki is absolutely crazy.
>>
>>100123038
Some generals can cleave through 3 or 4 men at once an armor wouldn't do anything
>>
Please stop this History Channel faggotry. No-one can say who'd win, because they never fought. There is no such thing as giant space arenas where omnipotent beings summon armies to duke it out. Armies develop depending on the materials available, the shape of the land, the distances, the flora, the fauna, the climate, the diseases, and more. Warfare and technology are constantly evolving. What objective are they fighting for, where are they fighting for it? How much preparation do they get? How much info do they have on each other? Does either have experience with the other's type of equipment and strategy? How much supplies do they have? Whose soldiers are most loyal to their cause? Whose morale is higher? What's the quality of the commanders? These questions and much more determines the course of politics, strategical warfare, and battle tactics. "Who would win" gives a completely distorted image of the realities of conflict.
>>
>>100129189

Agreed.

Still, One-Punch Man would easily win.
>>
>>100128392

That's wrong though.
>>
>>100129189
Well, I just want to watch both side to fight no matter the result. Time to go the library and compile info on it. Maybe I could simulate a war game scenario.
>>
>>100128886
Nah, Kanki just doesn't care about decorum, he sees what's possible instead of what's expected. I'd describe it like this: Kanki is an amazing tactician and a good strategist. Ousen is an amazing strategist and a good tactician. Kanki defeats the enemy by hitting where it hurts, Ousen makes the enemy lose its ability to fight. In the long run, Ousen is more beneficial for the country, because he forces his enemy into the worst possible situation: Siege warfare. Nothing is as costly in manpower, money, food, equipment, or morale.

Most of the times it's exaggerated to be dramatic. It's a stylistic choice

That sure puts a lot of perspective on things, but we can still compare the average unit's strenght and numbers.
