Fleet "12 boats/40* points"

Fleet "12 boats/40* points"
45 Points

Fun goldrush fleet using as many boats to try and grab as much good gold as possible before being blown apart one by one.

Its probably not the fastest or the best at this, but its what I came up with and I have been meaning to show it off. Its sort of been a "dream build". So if some rule like duplicates makes it illegal, please let me know.

I did add 8 points worth of crew as adding similarly slow boats was just not cutting it for me, afterall what good is an extra boat if I already have all the gold I need? I actually had some some extra points, thus the Oarsman on the L'Intrepide.

The 0+5point crew on the Jolly Mon for 4 extra build points. The Jolly Mon is useless with only S movement speed and I wanted to run as many small priced gold runners as possible. In the end it only added about 3 points worth of useful stuff.

Pique, L'Intrepide, Lezard all get a Helmsman, giving them a range of speed from S+S+S, S+L+S, S+S+S+S

The Banshee's Cry is the odd one out with an Explorer, she was fast already and I think making sure it gets the good gold on the second turn is better than waiting for the third turn with just a slightly faster return speed.

The unique treasures were chosen to help me get back as soon as possible. Though I guess you could gamble with some of those multi-value UT pieces like Buried Treasure and Sunken Treasure

Gold input = 3,3,3,3,3 or 2,3,5,5 and add one of those multi-value UT pieces I mentioned. Though that is for a more risky quick win situation.

!WARNING CAUTION ATTENTION!
If your foe includes Odin's Revenge in the treasure loot, it will most likely cause you to lose! (all boats lose 1 mast)

But fear not! As it is a Promo from the Frozen North expansion, it will be hard to come across, unless you allow proxies!

Creole Amelie Lejune, better known as the "Hag of Tortuga," is a sea crone feared and respected by all the sailors on the Crimson Coast, regardless of nationality. It is said that she can commune with the dead, control the winds, and stop a man dead in his tracks with just a glance.

A tiny vessel with few crew, the Mermaid is the ideal bait for greedy vessels. A favorite tactic is to have the captain's sister, Maud, masquerade as a captured noblewoman.

  • Number of Masts: 1
Miniature text:

This ship can’t shoot when she carries treasure.

Fast and agile, the Lezard gained respect by ensuring the safety of French ships sailing through the channel. But she gained infamy for the numerous times she sailed close enough to English ships for her crew to drop their pantaloons in salute.

Not bad for a swarm fleet. Scatter them enough and you should be able to get a bunch of gold home before they all get picked off...

...that is, unless someone puts Odin's Revenge in the treasure pool. If that shows up, you're in big trouble.

I must've missed this one before or something, but I have to say I'm impressed you managed to get 12 solid ships in a 40pt fleet - figuring out the logistics for that alone is worth a 5 to me.

I would love to try my 40 pt treasure fleet against this one. I think that you have a chance of maybe out running me. A solid 5 from me!

noted and added some thoughts on it to fleet article. im still new-ish so i dont know all the really nasty stuff your foe might have.

my favorite part about this fleet is that you can probably buy all the pieces to use it, really the Lezard is the only tough one to find. so its also a practical fleet when it comes to terms of your wallet.

im also having second thoughts about adding an explorer instead of the oarsman on the L'intrepide...
