Turn 8

Turn Sequence this turn!
Well as you can see by the turn sequence The British moved and fired first. This has had a dramatic effect on the game. Dramatic yes, disastrous no! It has meant that while the Dons shot last a couple of ships were closer and others were out of arc. I will email all ships involved and tell them how their firing went individually as well as any ship that has taken any damage!

View from up the step ladder of Doom!
All the picture below are taken
Top left hand corner to right.

Two Spanish Ships Unicornico has made a slight course change

SS Guano is now on Fire after she EXPLODED!
She then Managed to set HMS Badger on fire when she returned fire.
Milsey was also at extreme range for his marines to fire their flintlocks.
But only ray will know what effect that has had! Rays Marines were not
in Range when he fired! (That is the joy of random turn sequence).
But as you should both be in range now I will expect you to let
me know what they want to target!

The Overall Melee!

From the right hand side of the table.
HMS Agamemnon unleashed a broad side at San Francis
HMS Challenge also fired at SS Pinna Colada.
And was fired apon by San Francis.

The Two smaller Spanish Ships have now cleared the estuary

HMS Badger and SS Guano in the background with the Spanish ships of
 San Francis and SS Pinna Colada are in the Foreground.
And the British Ship HMS Inconsistent Is just visible on
the edge of the picture. 

Once again there has been an explosion on the ship SS Guano which has resulted in a fire and in Turn HMS Badger also has a fire. That is the only visible damage this turn and they if they choose may send repair parties to put fires out, or indeed to repair any other damage.

AS ever if you need additional pictures feelk free to contact me and I should get them out to you in 48 hours if not quicker(  I aim for 12 but.... well life gets in the way sometimes. ) If you have taken or Repaired any damage you or repaired any damage I will send out emails to you later this day.

Kindly remember folks I will need your turns in by 9am (GMT) Saturday the 27th September 2014. And If you could very kindly put an indication of what ship or person you are in the title it will make it easier for me. As I type this I can see Lee and Ray chuckling as I type this and tryin g to think of ways to confuse me. That's not a hard task by the way!

Cheers Folks. I am off to a local very small show tomorrow so expect a show report on Monday or Tuesday. So until then take care aim straight and keep your powder dry. And remember anything but a One!


  1. Fires and Explsions-Yippeee!!! Oooo I'm so glad to hear the HMS Badger is burning. I'd feel sorry for Rayolla, but what good would that do me?

    1. It's only a little fire at this stage. Feeling sorry for Ray or Milsey will not help them at all maybe you should send marshmallows! Thank you Anne.

  2. Things are heating up...especially on HMS Badger!

    1. Don't forget SS Guano, there is more than one fire. I would expect a few more fires before this game has run it's full course. By the way EVERYBODY you will get less victory points if you burn a ship to the waterline. Very little prise money for a charred raft.
      Thank you Lee.

    2. Yeah but in Millsy's case we make an exception...

  3. British dogs, run from my mighty Spanish frigate, Mercedes, while you still can!

  6. Damn fires break out while I was off at work!
