This is for pirateaj14’s Halloween Fleet Challenge. With the various restrictions making the Cursed the obvious faction of choice, naturally it made me want to submit a fleet without using any Cursed pieces lol.
With only 40 points to work with and needing both a somewhat expensive named crew in addition to expensive ship keywords (Ghost Ship and Fear), it was somewhat tough to fit a gold runner in. However, considering the two Pirate versions of Fantasma, I realized I could fit an HI raider on a Pirate Ghost Ship, which at first was the Hades’ Flame. Then I saw the Amity for a point less and more durability, which allowed me to use the more unique CC version of Fantasma. The Amity is the gold runner and should be pretty capable between her ability, durability, and speed. Phantasma will be used when optimal, and there’s not much fear of losing him to a boarding party (which won’t be likely when ghostly anyway).
The gunship here is a bit of an oddball pick, but I didn’t want to go with the predictable Executioner + El Fantasma . The Terror has the perfect name, flavor text, and abilities for a non-Cursed Halloween-type ship. I wanted to fit Shap’ng Tsai aboard to really make the ship a threat, but I didn’t have enough points left. However, I was happy to fit a firepot specialist aboard (which can strike fear into enemies just by having it around), as it makes the fleet a little more interesting, small though it may be.
What did you do on Halloween 2017?
