Miniature of the Week, from Pirates CSG

Double Shot, It's exactly what it sounds like

Equipment is without a doubt one of my favorite things. You get a great ability for 1 point, and the only downsides are that they take up one cargo (just like crew), replace a regular shot, and destroy themselves on a roll of... ... [read more]

Fleet of the Week, from Pirates CSG

Captain

Fleet "Supersize my Small Fry!" - 45 Points for Pirates CSG

built by notalwaysyou Premium Member send message

Edit: This fleet was prepared for "brettb45's “Small Fry” Fleet Challenge" and you can see the rules and restrictions there.

My personal goal for this fleet challenge was to avoid using many of the overpowered an cliche pieces. Ships like the Banshee's Cry, Le Bon Marin and some of the others. But I wanted to be able to compete with them so I aimed to build my fleet around tearing others' down. A lot of gold ships in this context will only have one mast, and very reasonably so. However, if a player were to throw in Odin's Revenge, then most any one masted ship is left derelict and unusable. They'll either have to be towed or abandoned by the opposing player while your ships are free to continue on.

In addition to expecting one masted ship, assuming someone is playing strictly to win, there's a few pieces you can probably expect. Flotillas and Native Canoes are very efficient pieces for their point costs in games this size, and they all have a lot more canons and hit points than any legal ships...

So, to counter them all, I decided my fighter should be a submarine. A piece that generally loses its effectiveness against larger ships, that are all illegal in this challenge. S+S+S speed and a captain will already give the USS Lamon a lot of maneuverability to fight to her advantage, but if you add a canceler and the ability to submerge, then you have a fearsome ship that can easily set her own terms for a fight. In addition, after a reveal of Odin's revenge, many ships will only have 1 mast remaining, allowing for easy submerged ramming, if it comes down to it. (Though it can be frustrating for the other player, so I would advise against doing it needlessly)

Diamond Nelson Turner is a cancellor and is naturally very useful to cancel opposing crew and abilities like captains, however, I do want to highlight what happens when you cancel a Flotilla's flotilla keyword.

quote:
-If the Flotilla keyword is cancelled, only one hit is required to eliminate its flag and it may be rammed and boarded. It is considered derelict if it has no flag, but it cannot be towed and cannot be given a move action (via the Oarsman keyword/ability) because it has no bow.

This will mean two hits to kill the Flotilla, not three, AND even if one of your canons miss, and the flag is eliminated, cancelling the Flotilla keyword on your opponent's turn will prevent it from shooting back. A derelict can't be given a shoot action. As a result, make sure to take out any ships towing the flotilla first, ideally by ramming, if Odin's Revenge didn't previously derelict them. Then surface and attack the Flotilla.

The goldships chosen were chosen to allow the necessary Cargo Master in the fleet (as the Lamon needs 3 cargo spaces) and to benefit from it, so they were American. In addition, the Philadelphia was given a premium because of her ability, allowing her to pick up any ships left derelict by Odin's Revenge and/or the Lamon. Because of their low mast count, any opposing ships can quickly be returned to the fight. The Philadelphia cannot be caught in combat however, as the Cargo Master she carries on board is very importance to the fleet. The American canoes were considered, but would've been hard to fit into a fleet with a cargo master, and can't gain the extra cargo provided by a cargo master.

To combat canoes, the Lamon needs to use her speed and defensive abilities to quickly find and kill the chieftain. Canceling the Native Canoes and Chieftain keywords isn't worth anything (and killing a canceled Chieftain would stop canoes from being eliminated). But that allows Mr. Turner to find other bothersome abilities to cancel.

The American fort, while nothing to write home about, will be useful to work as a base to quicken America's gold game, as it is a little lacking, and provide a closer home base to repair the damage done by Odin's Revenge to your own fleet. And while the Lamon can cancel Paradis de la Mer's pesky, pesky ability, Never mind, continue hating that fort......taking any fort will most likely be a deadly affair if they can return fire. So be very, very careful if attempted. Staying submerged to bypass forts and harass ships may be the wiser coarse of action.

There are some short comings, but this fleet should be able to cripple and harass any opposing fleet well, and with the Philadelphia, turn opposing strengths into your own.

May 21, 2015: Help maintain our miniature database
We want to have the most detailed and accurate data for collectible miniatures on the net, but it's difficult to maintain such an extensive database. So we are requesting your help. As you are the experts, you are best positioned to identify any mistakes or missing data on our site, and now you can correct them right away.

When you open the details window for a miniature you will see now an 'Edit' button:
Miniature edit button
Click on it and you will be taken to a form where you can make any necessary changes to the info for that item. It's that easy!

And as a reward for your help you will get 5 Friendship Points for each item that you correct on a miniature.

You can also add a new miniature to an existing set. You'll find an 'Add miniature' button at the bottom of the list of figures in a set.

Thanks a lot in advance for your help!

January 4, 2015: New main menu design
We have redesigned our main menu to be more clear, colorful, and convenient.

  • It now shows complete at the top of the page so that you don't need to scroll down to go to any of our sections.
  • It uses colors and images to better identify each available option.
  • Each section expands dynamically to occupy less space while not in use.

Hope you enjoy it.

September 16, 2014: Insert miniatures in your text!
When posting your comments in our forums and discussions many times you talk about miniatures that your readers may not know by heart. Now you can make all the details and info about a miniature accessible whenever you mention it with a new tag that you can generate automatically by using the form at the top of your text area:

Form to insert a miniature name or image in your text

This will insert the miniature's name or image and will show all the info about that figure when you hover your mouse over that name or image, like this:

Miniature details being shown when you place your cursor over the miniature's name

The name is also a link to the details page for that card.

This should make your comments and card reviews much more informative and clear. Try it out!

June 24, 2014: Average miniature prices
As you know, we already offer price data for most miniatures: in the miniature details window you can see the minimum, average and maximum price for the miniature, retrieved from multiple online stores. Up until now, though, you had to click on each miniature to check its price.

Now we are showing the average price value on miniature lists so that you can see this data without having to click on each item and so that it's easier for you to compare prices among different miniatures. You can see this information in your haves and wants and in other members' collections. This is also very useful when adding items to a trade.

Furthermore we are also showing the total average price for armies by adding up the average prices of all the individual miniatures. We are also doing this for trades. So you can now see the cost of building an army, and the total value of the miniatures sent and received in a Tracked Trade.

This feature is currently available for the following games: HeroClix, Dungeons & Dragons, Axis and Allies, Star Wars minis, and WoW minis.

April 19, 2014: Business cards for everyone!
You can now design your own business cards to let other people know about your web page at Miniature Trading and about your achievements on the site.
You can print these cards and hand them out to prospect traders you meet at the local store or tournaments. And you can also use them online as forum signature or avatars. They will link directly to your web page so that people can find it easily.

To create and customize your own business card, go to Your Profile and choose the option "Your avatar and business card". You can choose among multiple templates and include your own image.

Try it out and show off your membership in this community!
