I'll fix that, and add the bit about helmsmen and perhaps a few more combos.



EDIT: Added Turner in the combos section as well as the one you pointed out with Crimson Angel.

Good start; it's worth noting that this ship pretty much needs a helmsman no matter what, so I would edit some of those crew combos to reflect that. It's part of the reason Hammersmith is so good on this ship and many other Pirate ships. There are also a few random things to clean up, such as "grantee" and possibly adding Will Turner as a combo.

For me personally, I'd rather have more effective cannons that can eliminate extra masts for each hit than a measly +1 to boarding rolls, so a combo like Hammersmith, Crimson Angel, and an oarsman or Lady Baptiste could work rather well.

I'm glad you reviewed her though - she's one of my favorites since I've acquired her. However, I can't recall the exact combo I used with her.

I agree with a7, there could be some more meat to this review, but you covered all of the basics pretty well. Welcome to MT!

I like the look of this ship. There is good cargo space but there are a lot better ships for the costs of 15 Points.

Where it sank by the cannons of the English. I didn't play it optimally, that's for sure.

Welcome to MT! Glad to see a Miniature Review.


quote from juggernaut_john:

Well, tell me what you think. Constructive criticism is appreciated!


It's a bit short - some more combos and strategies could work. Funny enough, I usually see this ship as a poor gold runner - the S+L speed is far greater than many other Cursed ships, so I wouldn't oppose to sending her out empty to get treasure fast. Also, that speed makes the Lilu one of the best Cursed ships to tow either of the two Cursed flotillas.

It's fine you have a house rule where crew of any nationality can use their abilities on any ship, but in regards to Richard's boarding bonus, that doesn't stack with the Lilu's because they're on the same ship.

A good start, but adding more could make the review more helpful. That being said, you can only do so much with 2 cargo spaces. In fact, I would probably rate this ship at a 4 or 5, but perhaps 6 when considering only Cursed ships.

Funny enough this fleet looks pretty cool! I do like sac captains, and El Fantasma's artwork is always cool. I also made a fun gimmick fleet around the Kraken Gong, so your gimmicks actually play to my favorites!

I never would have thought of a fleet like this, given how little I use CM's and how little I like them.

Interesting variation. I like the use of Ismail and the specialists, something you don't normally see. It's a tiny thing, but there should only be one Manawa since you can only contribute one of each specific UT (although your opponent could contribute the same one). (Unless you house-ruled it otherwise.)
