SEPFC#2 - J'aime le fromage! Pirates CSG In the discussion on the Army "SEPFC#2 - J'aime le fromage!" by volt Miembro Premium United States send message

Something funny happened when I looked at this fleet. I glanced at the ships before reading the description, and saw the Triton and her crew complement. I thought that the strategy would be to have her ram an enemy runner loaded with gold (at least once if not twice), using Richelieu's ability to steal a treasure. Since the Triton can't be pinned, she could then run away on the next turn no matter what (although it'd be nice to have a helmsman). Then she would dock home and add the +2, giving you more gold than your opponent would have brought home, sort of throwing it in their face.

LOL, either way I like the fleet.

I assume they used the terrain from Lost to help with the "maze"?

I haven't seen something like this before, using ships, forts and optimally terrain as well to block your opponent - I like it! It would be more effective in a game where the islands and terrain are placed closer together than the 3L recommended by the rules. Sometimes I use the old 2L rules and once or twice I've tried 1L, which was quite fun. I may have to try this in some form when I play a game with 2L or 1L distances.

quote from submariner96:

*edit* I'm aware that Woelf has ruled that u can't add a treasure with verdant that won't be loaded, but You must bear in mind that this fleet I.R.L was created before the ruling and by someone who doesn't even use miniature trading yet and thus had only rules from the online pdf to go on.

Lost is a legal pull with Verdant Isle . That UT (and many others) just happen to be revealed and triggered as soon they're loaded.

The ruling you refer to applies only to UTs that remain on the island when found, like Altar of the Loa or Blood Money , and to UTs that take up space but can't be loaded because you don't have enough space on your ship at the time.

Eh, not a bad card but I still doubt I'd use it , to be honest If I want to do more damage I'd probably just go for a muskeeter, marine or cannoneer.

Great review though I have to say if you wanted a submerged fear debuffer it'd be cheaper to go for Squalo Although I suppose the 5 treasure & extra 3 shots do certainly merit the extra 7pts.

Very good, solid review. I like the combo section and the flow of the review. The detail you went into was excellent and I liked it very much! Thanks for bringing her to my attention, I'd never heard of her until now, and that is a devastating ability! Imagine if she was bigger, even if by only one mast!

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.

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.
