The Golden Fleet (100 pts) Pirates CSG In the discussion on the Army "The Golden Fleet (100 pts)" by kingofthe7seas United States send message

So even though the combo doesn't work with Calim submerged, it could still work while surfaced, which is still very good and potentially a great combo. I'd love to try that sometime in a game.

I would switch the shipwright on the GT for an explorer on the Neptune's Hoard and an oarsman on the GT.

I like this fleet. It's unique and uses a lot of star players from different factions, which is cool and unique, having a schooner, 6 mast junk, iconic sub, hoist, and squid. I would rate it a 4 for playability right now (possibly a 5 rounded up with the above change), and a 5 for uniqueness and creativity.

Thanks for enlightening me about the hoist/sea monster combo!

I swapped Calypsos out for Calim, since Calim is so speedy.

Well, woelf is the expert, but since it's the Frontier doing the action while the Sea Monster is submerged, I think it's legal. Hopefully.

Wow, what a unique and cool fleet! You use a lot of great parts from a lot of different factions.

I didn't know that the Frontier could unload gold to a submerged sea monster?

To add specific crew, choose the "add miniatures" rather than "quick add" to see a full listing of every generic crew released. It's a pain, but you can only see so many in the preview from the quick add option.

quote from kingofthe7seas:

The Titan keyword is the only thing that changes the crab from behaving like a ship; I'm pretty sure it's legal to repair by cancelling it.

Crabs are still considered sea creatures even if you cancel the keyword, so you can't repair it.
(Here's a link to The Pirate Code/FAQ if you don't already have it)


The legal ways to repair a Giant Crab:
1) Find a way to make it Eternal, and then repair it after it dies
2) Use the unreleased English Canoes.
3) Use the Trees UT (which is a hilarious image when you think about what it's actually doing thematically)

Actually, volt... the cancelling text doesn't SAY you must cancel an ENEMY ship's ability... bwahahahaha! So if you keep that in mind (and ignore the yells of irritation from your opponents) then yes, it's defiantly worth the price.


Hmmm... you can cancel the Titan keyword if you have a canceller within S of the crab. However, I'm not sure if that would allow the Titan to repair, since it is still considered a sea creature.

Besides the Krakens and Zeus, this is the most expensive Pirate piece out there. Why would I choose this over cheaper options? Is the crab's ability worth the price?

I do love the canceller idea, though! Its too bad a canceller can't target its own ship =

Thankee fer the comment, matey.


I love seeing new fleets!

The only things I would change at this point is swap the Queen's oarsman for an explorer and swap the shipwright on the GT for a helmsman on the Santa Isabel. Still a 5 without those changes however.

Also, the nationalities on some of the generic crew don't match the ships. It's not a big deal, but some people may complain that therefore it is an illegal fleet.

Great start! It would be easier to look at if the ships and crew were organized in the same section (HMS GT ship #1, Barbossa ship #1, etc.). Also, I think you could add some helmsmen since you're only at 46 points.

I use this ship alongside my La Santa Isabel, because it's dirt cheap for 5 cargo space and S+S speed. I'd personally give this ship a 10 for treasure hauling.

HMS Nautilus is most definitely a fantastic support fighter. I've never really used her, but given what you've said about her, she's definitely worth throwing into a fleet!

The biggest problem I have with this creature is that no 2 people pronounce the name the same Good, concise review. Maybe consider offering a variety of combos possible with the creature - for instance, did you use it in a game with good results? What other ships supported it? Overall, well done
