Thanks for the typos, fixed!

And with crew killing and 1 guns on the Titan, nothing is overkill lol.

quote from selvaxri:
I was contemplating the crew, and yes- the Windjammer could use a Captain.
I could drop Isandro, and afford two captains- but what do i get for one last point?
so, i'm more or less hoping for Cat's and Angel's Double Action to get past the Armada.


I would replace the oarsman on the Sister's Rage with a helmsman. I didn't realize it then but the SR will be slower than the allies even without them getting their double actions. A ship that small will need the first strike since even L-range shots from one of the trio could dismast the SR.


Had to do some crew rearrangements.
Giving the Windjammer a Captain puts the TCVP over that of the Windjammer, so Crimson Angel is on a suicide mission now onboard the Sister's Rage. She can still try to use her Double Action to cause as much trouble as possible.

STOP MAKING ME RETHINK MY DECISIONS, BEN!

Yeah I like the blue/red color disparity. I like how you used the Black/Jake link even more. However, the best part might be how you tied the other fleets into your flavor intro.

The flotilla almost seems like overkill - since you have guaranteed double actions vs die rolls, there's definitely a chance you can simply overpower the allies.

PS: In the description you said Rover instead of Mermaid, and then "disengage" at the end.

putting all your eggs in one basket, eh? Will double actions be enough to get through the Allied Fleet?

Good luck!

I like your tactic. I would definitely try to fit a captain on the Windjammer, and I'm a bit worried the Sister's Rage will be blown out of the water by Crenshaw on the Enterprise. I also like how two of the crew are hostile to the allied nations.


most of my fleet will probably be blown out of the water. two three mast ships and a 2-mast that if it gets close enough to a ship that can't hit the Sister's Rage, they'd probably just ram the Sister's Rage.

The Grendel should be cheaper, but she's wasting 5 points on the S-board ability that doesn't help her that much. Take that away, and she becomes a more feasible option. She's a 2 master, but her stats are about as good as they can get for cargo, guns, and speed.

Also, we might still be able to play the game - one of the biggest advantages of VASSAL is that you can start a game/file and resume later on.

This fleet gone 4-1 in VASSAL Tournament #2 to advance to the semifinals! (The fleet is now 5-1 overall)

It will be very interesting to see how it matches up against UPS 2, since by coincidence this fleet hasn't faced a normal fleet yet (3-0 against two different HMS GT deathmatch-oriented fleets, and 2-1 against a relatively similar USS Kettering fleet).

Jack Hawkins Pirates CSG In the discussion on the Miniature Review for "Jack Hawkins" by volt Miembro Premium United States send message

A month after being posted, I still find myself reading through this review for a good little story. I must say, you did a masterful job composing this. Putting all the links in made it so much better, something I really appreciate, as adding that many links must have been a meticulous job.

I like that you choose to review the Barbary Corsair version of Jack Hawkins, as opposed to any of his Pirate incarnations, since as a pirate he is considerably more flexible and can be comboed with so many miniatures. With this version of Jack, you still have the option to bring in Pirates, but he's limited to serving on Barbary ships, and provides an ability they absolutely need to be competitive in some situations, even though most of their ships are plenty fast already. Jack's use is best left to the few Barbary gunships, of which you mentioned the best ones to use him on in your review.

Overall, you brought together the best elements for a narrative story review, such as useful info, as well as which miniatures to combo with, while keeping an engaging story going, 5.
