Because of a dispute with the groups scanlating this series, I'm hereby dropping Kingdom with this chapter. Though I disagree with some translating decisions they're making, I do wish them luck in scanlating this great series. I'll still be working on season 2 of the anime, assuming everything else goes well by that point in time. I hope you guys enjoyed the work I did.

[Kingdom 67 Translation by Kewl0210]
Title: Chapter 67 Talent of a General
Wang: Youngster Xin,
would you like to make a bet with me?
Will "resourcefulness" win?
Wang: Or will "instinct" win?
Title: Chapter 67 Talent of a General
Wang: Of course, I mean the Supreme Commander of the State of Qin Army, Biao Gong.
Xin: ..........You wanna bet whether the winner will be our general or the Wei general?
Wang Qi: Exactly.
Bi: Get back in line, Xin.
Bi: Now's the time to be thinking about how to attack the Wei General.
Bi: Please, enough jokes, General Wang Qi!
Wang: Nuhuhu. As I said, I won't be participating in the battle.
......But I resent that you called it a joke.
"Resourcefulness" vs "instinct"! It is an eternal theme among generals.
Narration: The hill where Wei Vice General Bai Guixi is encamped.
Guy: Qin's flags are on Gong Yuan's hill......
Box: Bai Guixi
Guy: Did that fool get himself killed?
Lord Wu Qing has formed spear walls to combat the enemy soldiers?
Does the opponent on top of the hill warrant that much caution?
Guy: What is that unit?
Guy: Gong Yuan's chariot unit...?
A mounted unit?!
Guy: ?! The Qin Army?!
Impossible! Where did they come from...?
Guy: Thousand General Bi!!
A mounted unit, our army's mounted unit is running at the foot of the hill!! ["our army's" in italics.]
Guys: There are so many!
What unit is that?!
Bi: Biao Gong--------
It... It's Lord Biao Gong!
Guy: Biao Gong?!
You mean, our Great General?
Xin: I can tell with one look.
That's Biao Gong......
The Great General is leading the unit himself
Xin: and he's going to rush right into the Wei General's huge army!
Guy: Look! The other Vice General's army has started to descend their hill!!
Wang: He never changes. It seems that Biao Gong won't be satisfied unless he's in the center of a roaring fire for the finale.
In the course of this long war, the scale of the armies has grown. It is now a war of hundreds of thousands.
But the larger an army gets, the more the war is influenced by the talent of the general leading it.
Ultimately, a war is its generals.
Wang: The way Biao Gong perceives war is rather unique.
While Wu Qing is sees war as a logical game board,
Biao Gong's sees war a grand, blazing flame.
Wang: And now that that flame is burning at its maximum,
Biao Gong will be sure not to let it slip away from him.
Wang: Don't understand? Nhuhuhu.
Wang: Wu Qing cannot understand Biao Gong's way of war either.
But neither can Biao Gong see through all of Wu Qing's strategy.
Nhuhu... At this point, we still cannot see whose version of war is more correct.
Which is right?
Which is wrong?
Wang: We won't know that unless one of their heads is sent flying.
This is a battle of a "resourceful general" versus a "courageous general".
Guy: Five to six thousand enemies coming from the left!
Wu: ...........Biao Gong, eh.............?
Guy: They're closing in!
Wu: The fool! No surprise attack can succeed against the Qu Qing Army!
Guy: Look! The Wei Army is changing formations again!
That was fast!!
SFX: GOGOGO DODODO
Guys: This ain't good! They finished making their formation before the charge reached them!!
SFX: DODO KACHA
Xin: They're gonna collide!
Even Wu Qing will be surprised by this.
General Biao Gong's fighting strength is far above what Wu Qing had anticipated.
Though to say the least, that man has fighting strength equal to mine. And the strength of the army he's leading is a bit greater than the Wang Qi Army!
Qang: He'll scatter one or two of the formations.
General Biao Gong cannot predict what Wu Qing's next moves will be.
Qu: Call Zhu Gui and Ma Gui.
It's time to hunt.
Bi: War is its generals?!
Then what are we?
What about those that died?!
What was Fu Hushen's death?!
Bi: Don't screw around! We're part of this fight, too!!
Bi Unit! Charging formation!! We're going to back up General Biao Gong!!
This is likely to be the final battle!
Everyone, use everything you've got left!!
Bi: Now we depart for the front!
