Fleet of the Week, from Pirates CSG

HMS Grand Temple

Fleet "HMS Grand Temple" - 45 Points for Pirates CSG

built by a7xfanben Premium Member send message

In my 500 point game and my recent cumulative game (treasure is spent along the way), my HMS Grand Temple (acquired in the summer of 2011) was atrocious in play, being easily sunk in both games without barely touching my opponent. I was very disappointed with the performances, but since she has great stats and people on here rave about her like she's a saint, I decided to give her one more chance to prove her greatness. And has she proved me wrong so far!

The main reason I am posting this fleet is because it has been very successful. 29-13, as of 2/17/2017 (and 15-0 before that). This fleet was designed with just fighting in mind, so it is safe to call it a deathmatch fleet. The help she has consists of the HMS London with captain and helmsman, who are let onboard by Administrator Scott Bratley (the backup ship used to be HMS Meresman). The Temple is decked out with OE Calico Cat and OE Lord Thomas Gunn, as well as a helmsman.

The strategy is obvious and fun, but it has worked so far. I stay out of range of all enemy gunships and wait for an extra action from Cat. This is speeded up quite a lot by Gunn, who provides reroll (2/3 EA's instead of 1/3), and the necessary captain ability. Cat also gives me world-hater, so that two of my guns (S-range) hit 4/6 times, and the L-range guns hit 5/6 times (twos hit ). The Temple waits till the enemies are close enough, then moves 6S suddenly and swoops in and is able to dismast almost any ship (Harbinger was sunk in one broadside) unlucky enough to be there.

The London is the backup (now that I have acquired her), with 4 guns that hit 2/3 of the time. Before I strike, I position her to somewhat block the lines of fire to the Temple.

The first fleet that was mauled was a fleet with Enterprise, Recreant, and Ladron (with captains, +5 crew). The second fleet, with the Longshanks, Recreant, and Silverback, fell even quicker. Then I destroyed a fleet with the SM Harbinger and SM Sea Nymph. The fourth fleet I don't remember what ships I used. The last fleet, a swarm fleet with 10 ships, was blown out of the water (I could take out 3-4 ships per turn). All these fleets faced the HMS Grand Temple fleet in a series of three 40 point deathmatches, and all lost. I may not test this fleet again soon, so she goes on hiatus with an undefeated 15-0 record.

Edit: Just added a few nasty UT's if I run this fleet in a regular game (not deathmatch).

Edit: Fleet's record is now 18-6, read comment below.

Edit: Switched out Griffin for Lord Thomas Gunn, and made the helmsman English, so a canceler wouldn't be able to cancel all three crew at once by cancelling the Temple's ship ability.

Edit (1/6/13): Switched out HMS Meresman for the London, thanks to the suggestion by relvar99. This dramatically improves the potential of the backup ship to aid the Temple, as the firepower more than doubles with twice the quantity (4 guns vs. 2) and added quality (rank-2's with 2 being L-range). I will test this improved version of the fleet, possibly next month.

Edit (2/2/13): Another series of three games had this fleet facing an all-treasure fleet consisting of the Tiger's Eye, La Dijon, Le Bon Marin, Le Coeur du Lion, Coral, and Rover. It was no contest, with the GT fleet winning all three times in dominating fashion.

The final three games pitted the GT fleet against the Pirate fleet with the Darkhawk II, Raven, and Bonnie Liz. This fleet was harder for the Grand Temple and the London to defeat, but the English still won all three games. In addition, there was no English bias involved, as I even made the English HI extra-far-away from the rest of the islands for the last game, to give the Pirates a head start running gold.

This brings the record of this fleet to 24-6, and it appears that the GT fleet is only to be defeated by fleets utilizing defensive abilities or cancellers .

Edit (2/3/13): Today three games were played: 40 point deathmatches between the HMS Grand Temple fleet and the Acorazado fleet. It was the first time the GT fleet faced the Acorazado fleet with the London instead of the Meresman, so I expected the English to do better than before. They didn't. El Acorazado won all three games, and never lost more than two masts in any one game. Now this fleet is 24-9.

Edit (2/20/13): This fleet beat Norvegia in all three games. The GT was able to crush the treasure runners before they got back home. The devastating UT's helped a bunch, but the English still won the third game despite not using the UT's. The fleet's record is now 27-9.

Edit (1/20/17): After losing in the second round in VASSAL Tournament #2, this fleet's record is now 29-13 for a .690 winning percentage. At 42 games it's my most-tested fleet, and not many fleets out there have been put to the test like this one has.

1 x HMS Grand Temple [PatOE: 044, Ship, R]
1 x Calico Cat [PatOE: 038, Crew, R]

June 19, 2019: Miniature Trading is shutting down.
Miniature Trading will be shut down 1 July 2019.

We strongly recommend you export your lists before this date as the site, together with your account, will no longer be available afterwards.

Miniature Trading was started for collectors and players as a means to provide the most comprehensive database of miniatures available on the Internet. But since we weren't able to expend enough time to keep up with the ever-growing marketplace, we have decided to shut the site down. While it's sad to say goodbye, we are hopeful that you will continue your passion for card games of every and any kind. We regret any inconvenience this may cause you.

We appreciate everyone who has used and supported Miniature Trading. Thank you!

May 21, 2015: Help maintain our miniature database
We want to have the most detailed and accurate data for collectible miniatures on the net, but it's difficult to maintain such an extensive database. So we are requesting your help. As you are the experts, you are best positioned to identify any mistakes or missing data on our site, and now you can correct them right away.

When you open the details window for a miniature you will see now an 'Edit' button:
Miniature edit button
Click on it and you will be taken to a form where you can make any necessary changes to the info for that item. It's that easy!

And as a reward for your help you will get 5 Friendship Points for each item that you correct on a miniature.

You can also add a new miniature to an existing set. You'll find an 'Add miniature' button at the bottom of the list of figures in a set.

Thanks a lot in advance for your help!

January 4, 2015: New main menu design
We have redesigned our main menu to be more clear, colorful, and convenient.

  • It now shows complete at the top of the page so that you don't need to scroll down to go to any of our sections.
  • It uses colors and images to better identify each available option.
  • Each section expands dynamically to occupy less space while not in use.

Hope you enjoy it.

September 16, 2014: Insert miniatures in your text!
When posting your comments in our forums and discussions many times you talk about miniatures that your readers may not know by heart. Now you can make all the details and info about a miniature accessible whenever you mention it with a new tag that you can generate automatically by using the form at the top of your text area:

Form to insert a miniature name or image in your text

This will insert the miniature's name or image and will show all the info about that figure when you hover your mouse over that name or image, like this:

Miniature details being shown when you place your cursor over the miniature's name

The name is also a link to the details page for that card.

This should make your comments and card reviews much more informative and clear. Try it out!

June 24, 2014: Average miniature prices
As you know, we already offer price data for most miniatures: in the miniature details window you can see the minimum, average and maximum price for the miniature, retrieved from multiple online stores. Up until now, though, you had to click on each miniature to check its price.

Now we are showing the average price value on miniature lists so that you can see this data without having to click on each item and so that it's easier for you to compare prices among different miniatures. You can see this information in your haves and wants and in other members' collections. This is also very useful when adding items to a trade.

Furthermore we are also showing the total average price for armies by adding up the average prices of all the individual miniatures. We are also doing this for trades. So you can now see the cost of building an army, and the total value of the miniatures sent and received in a Tracked Trade.

This feature is currently available for the following games: HeroClix, Dungeons & Dragons, Axis and Allies, Star Wars minis, and WoW minis.

April 19, 2014: Business cards for everyone!
You can now design your own business cards to let other people know about your web page at Miniature Trading and about your achievements on the site.
You can print these cards and hand them out to prospect traders you meet at the local store or tournaments. And you can also use them online as forum signature or avatars. They will link directly to your web page so that people can find it easily.

To create and customize your own business card, go to Your Profile and choose the option "Your avatar and business card". You can choose among multiple templates and include your own image.
