Fleet "Feisty Libellule + Rover"

Fleet "Feisty Libellule + Rover"
20 Points

20 points isn't a build total you see often, but after neglecting to arm the Libellule in my "New Age of Armed Merchantmen" fleet, I actually thought up a decent combo.

Jordan Dumas proxies for Lady Roimata from Return to Savage Shores:

Lady Roimata
RSS-043, Super Rare

French
Points: 6
Link: Fetu

Ability: Captain. Once per turn before you give this ship an action, roll a d6. On a 5 or 6, this ship can be given the same action twice.

Flavor: Suspicious and not very welcoming of the newcomers to her ocean-bound land, Lady Roimata has made overtures towards France for the benefit of her people. French cannons may be put to even better use against neighboring islands.

Here we have a strangely potent ship at a tiny build limit. The Libellule has SAT with reroll, and therefore can move S+L+S twice with up to six 4L shots. With Godiva's link she still has 3 cargo spaces open for gold and can pick up coins quickly with the explorer, while the Windcatcher keyword can help her get home faster. Toss in a backup gold runner at L+L speed, and you've got a solid shot at winning unless you get nasty UT's. With the low point limit and extreme speed, it's likely you'll get the very nice UT's before your opponent.

1 x Explorer Explorer (PofCC)
  • Collector's Number: 120

  • Type: Crew
  • Point Value: 1

This ship may dock and explore a wild island using the same move action.

1 x Helmsman Helmsman (PofCC)
  • Collector's Number: 124
  • Faction Affiliation: France
  • Rarity: C
  • Type: Crew

1 x Jordan Dumas Jordan Dumas (PofBC)
  • Collector's Number: 082
  • Faction Affiliation: France
  • Rarity: R
  • Type: Crew
  • Point Value: 6
Miniature text:

Link (Le Loup-Garou)

This ship may move and shoot using the same move action. Once per turn, you may reroll any die roll you make for this ship; you must use the second die roll result.

No one denies that Dumas has a past: advisor to the king of France, minister, merchant, thief, priest, even spy. But it is his current occupation as captain of Le Loup-Garou that makes people wonder if he has any soul left.

1 x Libellule Libellule (SS)
  • Collector's Number: 047
  • Faction Affiliation: France
  • Rarity: SE
  • Type: Ship
  • Point Value: 9
  • Cargo Space: 6
  • Base Move: S+L
  • Cannons: 4L, 4L, 4L
  • Number of Masts: 3
Miniature text:

Windcatcher. This ship sinks when her last mast is eliminated.

The "Dragonfly" is fragile, maneuverable, and most of all, speedy. So speedy that her crew tells the curious that her cargo hold has been expanded in a desperate effort to weigh her down just to keep her in the water.

1 x Mademoiselle Josephine Godiva Mademoiselle Josephine Godiva (PofDJC)
  • Collector's Number: 086
  • Faction Affiliation: France
  • Rarity: R
  • Type: Crew
  • Point Value: 0
Miniature text:

Limit, Ransom. Choose one French crew during setup; this crew is linked to that crew. Once per turn, you may reroll any die roll you make for this ship; you must use the second die roll result. Link: Jacques, Duc de Valois, L'Eroica.

With innocence and pure trust, Mademoiselle Godiva boarded L’Eroica because her betrothed had requested her presence in the New World. The attacks she has endured from both ships and monsters have her and the crew both puzzled and cautious.

 
Section: Ship #2 (1 miniatures)
1 x Mermaid Mermaid (PofCC)
  • Collector's Number: 020
  • Faction Affiliation: Pirate
  • Rarity: R
  • Type: Ship
  • Point Value: 2
  • Cargo Space: 1
  • Base Move: L+L
  • Cannons: 3S
  • Number of Masts: 1
Miniature text:

This ship cannot carry crew.

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.

 
Section: Unique Treasures (3 miniatures)
1 x Barbary Banner Barbary Banner (PofBC)
  • Collector's Number: 107
  • Faction Affiliation: Treasure
  • Rarity: R
  • Type: Unique Treasure
  • Point Value: 0
Miniature text:

If loaded by a Barbary Corsair ship, Barbary Banner is worth 1 gold for every mast that ship eliminates while Barbary Banner is aboard. If loaded by another nation’s ship, it is worth 5 gold when unloaded at your home island.

1 x Spices Spices (PofBC)
  • Collector's Number: 100
  • Faction Affiliation: Treasure
  • Rarity: R
  • Type: Unique Treasure
  • Point Value: 0
Miniature text:

Double the value of one non-unique treasure on this ship when unloaded at your home island or fort, and then remove Spices from the game.

1 x Turtles Turtles (F&S)
  • Collector's Number: 094
  • Faction Affiliation: Treasure
  • Rarity: R
  • Type: Unique Treasure
  • Point Value: 0
Miniature text:

When revealed, put this treasure and up to nine other Turtles from outside the game within S of the wild island. At the beginning of each of your turns, the Turtles move S toward your home island, avoiding all islands and terrain. Eliminate a Turtle if it is touched by any ship or sea monster. Each Turtle that touches your home island is worth 1 gold.

 
Section: Forts (1 miniatures)
1 x Paradis de la Mer Paradis de la Mer (PofR)
  • Collector's Number: 065
  • Faction Affiliation: France
  • Rarity: C
  • Type: Fort
  • Cannons: 2L-2L-3L-3L-4L
Miniature text:

Gold Cost: 4

The first time this fort is shot at each turn, roll a d6. The result is the number of times this fort must be hit that turn before any of its cannons can be eliminated.

The Paradise of the Sea is now home to second-generation French settlers, who will fight to the death to keep their island safe from outsiders.
