Spanish Lipstick – 2013 Fleet Challenge Entry
Originally published to Miniature Trading on May 2nd, 2013
This is my final fleet for volt’s Lipstick on a Pig Fleet Challenge. This Spanish Lipstick fleet was posted after the deadline, and is not an official entry. (Viking entry, English entry)
The first ship is the Antamasia. She is has a very slow base move, but about half of the time, she will be moving S+L. Her nice cannons are boosted by the stinkpot specialist and cannoneer. Her primary goal, however, is to steal the best treasures from your opponents. Antonio will let you look at their treasures to find the best ones, and then she can swoop in and take them. A captain would be a nice crew to put on the Antamasia, but then neither of the other two crew would fit, plus I’ve used captains in my other fleets for this Challenge.
The second ship is La Repulsa. She is grossly overpriced, but she was in the first pack of Pirates that I ever got, along with the Asesino de la Nave. She will assist the Antamasia in stealing the opponents’ treasure. Her ability might actually come into play if the Antamasia shoots at an enemy ship first. Also, Antonio’s ability can be used for the Repulsa if the Antamasia gets tied up fighting off the opponent’s gunships. The oarsman is there for crew-killers and since the Repulsa has only one mast.
The third ship is the San Theodora. She is the gold runner, equipped with a helmsman to boost her speed to S+S. Her treasure-trading ability will help her make the most of her few treasure hauls, with enough cargo to empty an island.
Rolling Fog was thrown in to fill up the points, and because it’s not a very helpful event. It’s been used some, but not nearly as much as the other events.
The Antamasia and the Repulsa will work in tandem to steal enemy gold, while the San Theodora makes me even richer!
Thanks to volt for running the Challenge, thanks for reading, and please comment and vote!
