This is nostalgic and just a personal fleet of stuff I like in the Pirate faction. Only Hammersmith and Gallows weren't in my original collection from 2005-2006, and I got Gallows early in 2011 when I came back from hiatus.

The Selkie is the main gunship and has decent potential speed and firepower. The Cursed Blade was the subject of my first review, and has a decent crew setup to let her be a hybrid raiding ship. The Carrion Crow could use a captain but I didn't have points, so she's a backup hybrid and will hopefully either get some gold or score a few hits. It was very difficult to choose between the Lightning and the Coral.

The UT's were chosen as some of the first ones I ever had.

Section: Ship #1 (4 miniatures)
1 x "Cannonball" Gallows "Cannonball" Gallows (PofMI)
  • Collector's Number: 042A
  • Faction Affiliation: Pirate
  • Rarity: C
  • Type: Crew
  • Point Value: 0
Miniature text:

Ransom. Limit. Place this crew face up during setup. You may build your fleet using 5 more points than the game’s build total. This crew cannot leave this ship unless captured or eliminated.

Link: Nancy Nox

[Official Errata: This crew member has the Ransom keyword in addition to its printed abilities, and a point cost of 0 (zero). The card was incorrectly printed without that keyword and with a point cost of 10.]

The son of Genny Gallows grew up as a pirate. But for him, piracy is all fun and games, almost like living a dream of gold, glory, girls, and rum. He sails for fun, and crews line up to sail with him.

1 x Calico Cat Calico Cat (PofSMU)
  • Collector's Number: 029
  • Faction Affiliation: Pirate
  • Rarity: R
  • Type: Crew
  • Point Value: 3
Miniature text:

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

1 x Hammersmith Hammersmith (F&S)
  • Collector's Number: 022
  • Faction Affiliation: Pirate
  • Rarity: R
  • Type: Crew
  • Point Value: 5
Miniature text:

Hostile:England, Helmsman, Captain

As a prisoner of the Crown, the hulk of a man known only as Hammersmith was sentenced to an Australian penal colony. After his prison ship sank during a South Pacific squall, his life was somehow spared, and he took that as a sign that maybe he needed to find a new way to live.

1 x Selkie Selkie (PofDJC)
  • Collector's Number: 038
  • Faction Affiliation: Pirate
  • Rarity: C
  • Type: Ship
  • Point Value: 9
  • Cargo Space: 4
  • Base Move: L
  • Cannons: 3L-2L-3L
  • Number of Masts: 3
Miniature text:

You may double the range of this ship’s cannons each turn, but you must roll a natural 6 to hit.

The Selkie's Irish crew claim to understand the sea in ways no other sailors do. Whatever grants them this power, their ability to sink ships is feared by all captains.

Greed motivates El Gato, captain of the Cursed Blade. His crew have mastered many inventive tactics in order to steal an opponent's treasure, rather than fight.

The Lightning was commissioned by the Americans to patrol the North Atlantic. Unfortunately for them, Captain Wright didn't like his pay, and now he uses the ship as a way to collect a higher wage.
