The Battle of Vercuso Bay

The green seas pitched violently around as two fleets jockeyed for position; orders were variously shouted, signaled and transmitted by the Orcish boot-applied-to-backside method and the battle lines were drawn.

The Naval Alliance fleet:

Ironprow II

The Belly

The Pirate Fleet:

Da Hogwasha and the red cutter

The Inferno

Initial moves:

The Naval Alliance fail to follow their own plan and get a little tangled up!

First Broadside!

Chaos reigns, much shouting, cursing and swearing in Bretonnian and Reiklander ensues...

The Royal Air Force sail through the air and hide, majestically, behind The Belly.

The red cutter sneaks out...

...and the Belly heads right for them!

but they get a broadside from The Hogwasha!

The Inferno's Vampire captain and Necromancer first mate fill the wrecked Scythe of Ra with a "fresh" Zombie Crew!

Da Jaw starts a long chase of Ironprow II, round the rugged rocks...

The fleets come into pistol-shot and all hell breaks loose!

Da Jaw tries a precarious ram in the teeth of the rocks!

But Ironprow II escapes

The Belly grinds ever closer to Hogwasha and the cry of "Prepare to Repel Boarders!" goes out from the Orc ship's quarter deck
The Battle of Vercuso Bay - Naval Battle Report P1010455

Boarders are repelled! The Ogres are beaten back by the ferocity of Kap'n Mogrum Da Butcha:

The Pegasus Knights attack the Inferno

A second ram is attempted by Da Jaw in the teeth of hellish gunfire!

The Zombie-crewed Scythe follows suit but the single zombie that gets aboard Le Sanglier is quickly dealt-with
The Battle of Vercuso Bay - Naval Battle Report P1010466

The Battle of Vercuso Bay - Naval Battle Report P1010467

Hogwasha takes the opportunity to re-crew the red cutter - this is a mistake!
The Battle of Vercuso Bay - Naval Battle Report P1010462

The bow-fire reply for the insult is swift and brutal
The Battle of Vercuso Bay - Naval Battle Report P1010471

The Battle of Vercuso Bay - Naval Battle Report P1010472

The Ogres clamber back aboard the uncontested Belly and once more attack the depleted crew of Hogwasha
The Battle of Vercuso Bay - Naval Battle Report P1010468

The Battle of Vercuso Bay - Naval Battle Report P1010473

The red cutter's new crew is slaughtered by the Pegasus Knights
The Battle of Vercuso Bay - Naval Battle Report P1010475

While the deck of Da Jaw is swept clear by the murderously efficient broadsides of Ironprow II
The Battle of Vercuso Bay - Naval Battle Report P1010476


The Pirate fleet limp away and concede the engagement to the Naval Alliance - One ship is fair shape but two ships and a cutter almost devoid of crew, two ships leaking badly and on the verge of sinking, verses the Le Sanglier's very strong crew and two still-sturdy ships and of course the Hogwasha captured.

Huzzah for the Naval Alliance!!

Ironprow II had 2 very close misses fro Da Jaw. First ram attempt, his repositioning the ram caused a miss. the second he just didn't row far enough.

Very Happy Ironprow has finally finished a game intact and fully crewed!

Huzzah!

Hehehe - she was designed as a landing craft, so that works! It was being borrowed by Tim as he hadn't started his Dark Elf ship yet but the ramp became very effective in boarding actions, so we may see a bit more of it in our future games.

AND a trip down Memory Lane: when as a Lad I became hooked on war games, THE scale was 54mm minis; SO...about the only place large enough for a game was the floor. If I had to do that now, I'd be crippled for a week. The Battle of Vercuso Bay - Naval Battle Report Suspect

My steam driven Goblin vessel, The Wicked Wanda, has a spiked boarding ramp that, when lowered, releases the Squigs that are stored/imprisoned in the fo'castle...the HEIGHT of Goblin-tech. The Battle of Vercuso Bay - Naval Battle Report 387809
