OK, first fleet in a while here I go. This is supposed to be a 40 point fleet but I don't have the guy for France that allows you to build your fleet with 5 extra points and I don't have another low point cost French ship. I don't want to put any more crew on board my ships because I want them to have as much cargo space as they can. But once I get him this fleet will be a 40 point fleet.

I've played with this fleet twice I one 1 and lost one. I lost to my brother because He had the Spanish Native Canoes. There special ability is each treasure this ship unloads get +1 to its value and I didn't have time to get to them because my brothers five mast kept on foiling my plans. As you can see I names my fleet this because all of my ships have at least S+L movement.

Thanks for reading. Please leave a comment if you vote so I can know what to work on. Happy Holidays.

Filled in those four points once I get the extra five points guy I will make my fleet even stronger.

  • Faction Affiliation: France
  • Rarity: CT
  • Type: Crew
  • Point Value: 3
Miniature text:

This ship may move and shoot using the same move action

  • Collector's Number: 083A
  • Faction Affiliation: France
  • Rarity: C
  • Type: Crew
  • Point Value: 4
Miniature text:

This ship gets +1 to her cannon rolls against any non-French ship.

After raiding and plundering holdings along the west coast of South America, Barbinais found himself in the South China Seas. The wealth of the English ships there has taken his plundering to a whole new level.

1 x La Vengeance La Vengeance (PofRU)
  • Collector's Number: UL049
  • Faction Affiliation: France
  • Rarity: U
  • Type: Ship
  • Point Value: 12

  • Number of Masts: 4
Miniature text:

Schooner. This ship gets +1 to her cannon rolls against English ships.

em>In her last conflict with the English, La Vengeance lost all but five crew members. Those five make all new sailors swear a blood oath of revenge before coming aboard.

1 x Lenoir Lenoir (F&S)
  • Collector's Number: 092B
  • Faction Affiliation: France
  • Rarity: C
  • Type: Crew
  • Point Value: 4
Miniature text:

Loyal: France, Hostile: England. Once per turn, one crew or ship within S of this ship can't use its ability that turn.

Few of his cremates are quite sure what Lenoir's duties are - but they apparently involve whispering in the capitaine's ear.

 
Section: Ship #2 (3 miniatures)
1 x Le Courageux Le Courageux (PofRU)
  • Collector's Number: UL051
  • Faction Affiliation: France
  • Rarity: U
  • Type: Ship
  • Point Value: 10
  • Cargo Space: 4
  • Base Move: S+L
  • Cannons: 2S-3L
  • Number of Masts: 2
Miniature text:

This ship ignores the first hit she takes each turn as long as she has all of her masts.

Link: Guy LaPlante

Guy LaPlante expertly captains Le Courageux; he makes sure the enemy can see his face, and know that both her guns and his sword are pointed at their heart.

1 x Maurice Aristide Maurice Aristide (PofCC)
  • Collector's Number: 030B
  • Faction Affiliation: France
  • Rarity: C
  • Type: Crew
  • Point Value: 3
Miniature text:

One of this ship's treasures is worth +2 gold when unloaded at your home island.

Link: Phillipe du Brissac.

Hiding behind a ridiculous facade of heavy court makeup and a high wig, Maurice Aristide appears every bit the foppishly perfumed and helpless French courtier. In truth, he is a brilliant businessman with the knowledge both to find treasure on the Crimson Coast and to traffic it safely to his European accounts.

1 x Vicomte Jules de Cissey Vicomte Jules de Cissey (PofCC)
  • Collector's Number: 089
  • Faction Affiliation: France
  • Rarity: C
  • Type: Crew
  • Point Value: 0
Miniature text:

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

Not everyone who wears a fancy uniform deserves it - especially not Vicomte Jules de Cissey. Every inch the powdered puppy, his shrill demands and pretentious behavior make him generally disliked by all who meet him. He is, however, a vicomte with means, so he continues to receive his social due, though this presence adds no luster to events.

 
Section: Ship #3 (2 miniatures)
1 x Explorer Explorer (PatOE)
  • Collector's Number: 119
  • Faction Affiliation: France
  • Rarity: CT
  • Type: Crew
  • Point Value: 1
Miniature text:

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

1 x Le Pique Le Pique (PofRU)
  • Collector's Number: UL058
  • Faction Affiliation: France
  • Rarity: R
  • Type: Ship
  • Point Value: 5
  • Cargo Space: 3
  • Base Move: S+S+S
  • Cannons: 2S
  • Number of Masts: 1
Miniature text:

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

Guy LaPlante retrieved this ship from the English and returned it to France. Its guns were upgraded by its English captors, and the current crew is learning how to fire them effectively.

 
Section: Ship #4 (2 miniatures)
1 x Explorer Explorer (PatOE)
  • Collector's Number: 119
  • Faction Affiliation: France
  • Rarity: CT
  • Type: Crew
  • Point Value: 1
Miniature text:

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

1 x Le Coeur du Lion Le Coeur du Lion (PatOE)
  • Collector's Number: 080
  • Faction Affiliation: France
  • Rarity: R
  • Type: Ship
  • Point Value: 2
  • Cargo Space: 3
  • Base Move: S+S
  • Cannons: 2L
  • Number of Masts: 1
Miniature text:

This ship cannot shoot when she carries treasure.

Le Coeur du Lion is a mere shell of her former self, barely able to maintain discipline among her crew and sporting more leaks than usable cannons.

This is actually pretty good! If you support the Vengeance, even the best 5 mast ships with have a tough time!

A 5/5 from me.

Old NFL saying, "Catch the ball before you run", well in this case, vote before you say you voted.

I would put a plus one but I don't have one then the five mast will have a pretty good challenge especially if they use England.

This is a pretty good fleet - it is fairly quick, but could still be outrun by an opponent, as you mentioned with the Native Canoes. Le Coeur de Lion seems to be a bit of a weak spot, being just a little too slow. Maybe put a Captain with Aristide on Le Courageux with your extra 3 or 4 points, he can always be left behind if you find a lot of gold. Or, better yet, drop the Lion altogether and assign a crew like Robert Surcouf or Amiral Louis Cartier, if you have one, to La Vengeance.

Either way, when you get Vi comte Jules de Cissey, definitely work on giving La Vengeance more firepower, even if it's in the form of a Fire Pot Specialist. Or you could even put Lenoir onboard, to give her a better chance in a confrontation.

This fleet has a lot of potential, but I would like to see you find a way to fill out all the points, even if it's just up to 40.

And perhaps add some more strategies in. I'm not quite sure what you want each ship to do. Has potential, especially since you could flip things around a bit. You may need to drop the Lion to fill the rest of the fleet out.

*Shameless Plug* I'm very partial to the Vengeance, see my review on her.
