This made me chuckle in a good way. Our group has started doing same project and we've also decided that LD test with penalty for dead fighters is the way to go! If 2 different groups think of the same idea, then it is has to be good.
We've decided to go with Shadow War: Armageddon way of approaching juves. Juve can't buy advancements, but for 10 xp points he can become a ganger, upgrade his statline for free and change equipment once.- N18 has a strange bloat in character development where developing gangers end being more costly to Gang Rating than recruited heroes. This is anti logical. However, syncing fighter advances to the cost recruited heroes means that that upgrades fighters get are not in touch with the actual power their upgrades represent. This kind of explains why a Toughness upgrade is very costly, but it leaves a big hole in the locig for hero recruitment cost.
We also made every gang have the same stat line. However, every gang gets "thematic" advance, STR for goliath, I for Escher, M for Delaque, LD for Orlock; Cawdor gets nothing, but it means that their fighters are cheaper and thus easier to spam, Van-Saar get built-in Undersuit (and we've removed undersuit from game) while having different prices for armor to acommodate for +1 save. You can pick 2 types of champions: +WS and +A one or +BS one.
