The IMPOSSIBLE Fleet

The IMPOSSIBLE Fleet

Originally published to Miniature Trading on August 4th, 2013

Woelf recently submitted a fleet that was out of the ordinary and quite unlikely indeed. With that in mind, I’ve thought about creating a truly unbeatable fleet. Not only is it hard to obtain (every game piece is either an SE, LE, SR, or PR), but also hard to beat.

The Nox is proxying as the Blue Heron-only one of which is supposed to exist. The crew on her aren’t really in the fleet (since the Heron costs 14 points), it’s just that the Nox looks strikingly similar.

This fleet is powerful, packing a whopping 11 ships into the 40 point limit. It’s got treasure runners and fighters, and a PR crew-killing fort to boot. The Dungeon will induce Fear before the Deuce kills you with her Ghost Captain. If you ever manage to sink my ships or kill my crew, I can find Abandoned Crew and reincarnate myself with the Resurrection Codex.

How do you beat this standard 40 point setup? Good luck, for if you win, you’ll receive a bust of the infamous Fantasma. The IMPOSSIBLE fleet

This is my third (and therefore illegal) entry into nematode66’s Attack of the Clones Fleet Challenge. This is not an official entry, and it shouldn’t be considered for this Challenge. This was the last idea I had for the Challenge, so here it is. (Corsair entryAmerican entry)

I’ve always thought that 6 masted junks were majestic and impressive, and I haven’t made a Jade fleet until now.

The fleet’s strategy is pretty simple: the Grand Path shoots enemies to the bottom with her 6 1S guns, moving L+S+L+S theoretically two-thirds of the time, upon which Divers can be flipped to recover the sunken gold.

The Grand Wind sails out at S+S+S+S speed with the help of a sac captain who can also make her job easier by trading away the lowest value coins.

Thanks to nematode66 for running the Challenge, please comment and vote on my Clones of the South China Sea fleet!
