Fleet "The Value of Jade"

Fleet "The Value of Jade"

This is a fleet I made to try to regain some the Jade Rebelions reputation. Most people think of this nation as high pointed "junk". No pun intended. Though most of their ships are either junks or turtle ships they are still very useful. Their smaller ships do cost more, but when you get to the three masters they come at discount prices. I porposly didn't include any one masters in this fleet due to the fact that some of the members here at MT really like to use Odin's Revenge. It is nifty, but most average players will probably never own one.
Strategy
Ship #1.
The Black Lotus from BC will be my gunship and will be running interfearence with the enemy. It is amply equiped for this with a captain, oarsman ( incase of a bad board), extra action giver, a +5 to the build total crew, and a Stinkpot Specialist. All of this crew only takes up 4 cargo so it has one extra incase I want to use the ships ability. With the extra action crew I can make this ship go L+L and then shoot at my enemy ( with my captain) if he is in range. Li Quin does take up one cargo space but does allow more room on the treasure runners.
#2.
The Sea duck is one of my treasure runners who will quickly run out to one of the farthest islands with its greter speed and bring a load of treasure back before the enemy catches up with it.
#3. and #4.
Both of these ships will travel together for better protection because of their slower speed but incresed cargo space and go from island to island cleaning them out one by one. Thanks to the Tiger's Breath they don't have to waste a turn exploring the islands and the can be quickly back on their way.

Hope you liked it and please don't forget to ckeck out my miniture reviews as I will be doing one of the ships that I included in this fleet. When I finish it, I will post the link to it here at the bottum of my fleet. Enjoy!

I love the Jade, and their junks. =) Although, any fleet I try with Jade usually starts with the Virtuous Wind, which I think is the best ship they have short of 6 masts. I would dump the sea tiger, and use its points to replace the Lotus with the VW, and add a helmsman to the Tiger's Breath.

Yeah there's one big problem which is that your gunship is too slow. Seeing as it won't always get the extra action then it only goes L on most turns. This is way too slow to accomplish anything, I would add a helmsman.
I agree with volt. Virtuous Wind is a great ship (loving the Spanish version too).

After reading your posts, I see that the Lotus isn't the best choice of gunship. Sometime really soon I will fix that. Thanks to a buisy schedule. I don't have time in the next three days to fix it. Maybe I will get to it over the weekend. Thanks for your ideas and comments.

Love it! Love the Jade as well. They're easily the best minor faction and can hold their own well against most nations.

Maybe you can get to it this weekend?

I'm kidding since I don't think you need to change the ship choice. Not every Jade fleet needs to have the Virtuous Wind in it. You can stick with your choice and let the votes fall where they may. However, even though I like stinkpot stuff, you could swap that for a helmsman.
