Zeus Pirates CSG In the discussion on the Miniature Review for "Zeus" by lordstu Miembro Premium Canada send message

Tell me somebody did not vote on this one again!

I mean, if you're going to vote, the least you could do is give it a 5, if for nothing else but its longevity - after all, at 38 votes(now), I believe it is the front-runner in that regard.

(btw, it was much better in it's original version when all the letters were way-oversized - over time, something happened to all of the fontage)

Please don't negatively vote these "fleets" just because they are not actually fleets for game play. The whole point of uploading these is so that the group I've started in real life have a reference point from which to CREATE actual fleets for game play! Now considering that if you check on here, the online community for England is 9 members (including myself) while my group is 11 people (including myself) we represent not only a majority, but also the largest pirates CSG group I am aware of in England (If not please do tell me, I'd love to communicate with other groups), thus our actions & the posting of these fleets are all in the aim of keeping a community for this game alive.
By down-voting these fleets you may attract unwanted attention that could lead in them being removed, if that happens you are actively contributing to the continual decline of this wonderful game.
So please, don't down vote these... We're supposed to be united under the common cause of a love for this game and a desire to play it as a community, so if anything you should Support this sort of thing, not fight against it... I don't know just think before you vote, ok?

Why are you posting this here? This section is for actual fleets; not collections. There is a place on the site designed specifically for the purpose you are using this for. In the navigation bar on the left, at the very top, is a link labels "Miniatures You Have". Please post these there.


Because this is not as simple as you might think, I'm not simply uploading a miniatures I have section, but creating a reference point for my pirates Group in real life, creating the same thing in miniatures I have proved inordinately complex and involved extensive deletion and then re-selction of ships, If you don't like this then have no fear, the last one is long since uploaded so you won't have to see them anymore anyway.

I really like the fleet, but I have to ask... Sealed pack play with an out of print game years after final print? Erm... why? Do you have a P.C.S.G community irl or something? If so I'd love to hear about that since ours is just starting up and I'd love to know how to keep it fresh for the group.


This fleet is an entry in the Sealed Pack Fleet Challenge being run by lord_denton.

Centaur Archer Pathfinder Battles In the discussion on the Miniature "Centaur Archer"

So let me get this straight. So far out of a 4 mini pack I have gotten 2 commons and 2 uncommons. The 2 commons have good paint jobs, and the 2 uncommons have Bad paint jobs. If you release less uncommons than commons, don't you think you would take more time on the quality? Again the face is not good, it appears that they are unable to paint actual human skin tones very well at all.

And now I am disappointed. The paint job on this one is horrible, especially the face. Also the shield arm is broken off and you can tell they super-glued it to the base because of the white film/discoloration. You pay $16 for 4 minis, that is $4 per mini. This one is not worth $.02 in my opinion.

Interesting miniature, it appears to be something of an anthropomorphic Sphinx. Decent mini over all.

This is an awesome looking miniature. I really enjoy the way they have made their goblins look. It gives them so much character.

All SIX of the fleets you've posted should go in your haves list, not in the fleets section. In this way they just take up space and deceive people like me that are actually looking for fleets to comment and vote on.

I don't think you can delete fleets, but you could edit them to make them into real fleets.

Thanks for the comment, what set is Bratley? (I feel like I know that name but I'm not about to go searching for a card from a set I don't have stuff from XP)


Crimson Coast, the second set. If the insert miniature function is working for you, you can hover your mouse over his name in my last post and all of his details will appear.

quote from a7xfanben:

You have a MAJOR need for speed. The two ships that you have for combat both move L, not nearly fast enough to catch anything in a remotely competitive game. I would swap out the cannoneer on the Zephyr for a helmsman. It would be nice if the Honu Iki was faster as well, but it doesn't look like you'll have the points (unless you add Bratley).

I would swap out the oarsman for an explorer on the Honu Iki. That's a tougher one, but exploring will get the ship home faster, which is more likely to keep it safe than being able to move just S after she's been hit, at which point it will be very easy for an opponent to sink her.


I'm defiantly going to swap out for explorer on honu iki however, in terms of speed... well I've had no issues so far, especially with zeph's move and shoot or shoot and move however, I guess I will trial a helmsman, tbh this is not a competitive army because it doesn't have to be, the major competitive scene for this irl is dead and the scene at our game shop is very early days (I founded the weekly sessions about 2 months ago) the majority of our players are still getting to grips with the game completely and settling into their particular play styles factions e.t.c.
Finally I would say that this is NOT my main fleet (vikings4life!!!) and instead simply something I thought would be fun because as a sucker for lore / flavor text the idea of a H & T fleet was appealing and that others might also find fun.

Thanks for the comment, what set is Bratley? (I feel like I know that name but I'm not about to go searching for a card from a set I don't have stuff from XP)

What do you guys think of this fun little fleet? Should I go explorer over oarsman? Is there something else you would change? Let me know in the comments and be sure to rate it!
