Well today we used the paddle steamer and wanted to give it a go in our IHMN Alec brought his brits lead by the honourable Capitan Flashheart and the Serpent pirate queen was again his foe she was on the tigress and he was on the armed gunboat HMS Victoria
The Qeen of the serpents with a large number of her pirate crew captain and sorcerer make to do battle with the British
Captain flashheart his company and the ships Crew with captian Eddie H on the wheel armed to the teeth seeking revenge for last times carbuncle "All right men, let's do-oo-oo it"
Able seam men man the guns as the company make ready for action on the water
did not have a suitable cloth as we played on a 6 x 4 so it was muddy river time
the Queens ship arrives with her sea serpent pet
a gun blast the first shot slays captain Chin
gunfire from the steamer rakes the tigress slaying more
the 2 vessles try to out manover each other
the sorceroe falls to a gun shot dead as a door nail
now the complications arrive dreaded shark men infested waters woken by the gun fore rise to the surface to attack anyone and anything
a shark man attacks the Victoria intent on a meal
he rises and climbs on board attacking the fron gun crew as solders rush to fight it off
a seaman is shoved over board as he dives out the way of the sharkman the crocs wake up!
a huge second sharkman attacks the tigress musket fire having no effect at all
teeth and bayonet scuffle on the deck
the pitates face the huge monster who sweeps the lot of them back in his wake
2 pirates are slaughtered in econds by the hulking monster
Capitan Flashheart attacks with his sable and slays the beast " Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait a minute. Now I may be packing the kind of tackle that you'd normally expect to find swinging about between the hindlegs of a Grand National winner, but I'm not totally stupid. I've got the kind of feeling you'd rather we hadn't come."
the Victoria trys to get closer to the tigress seeing the battle on the deck they let the shark take care of the pirates for now
a croc awaits any scraps left if possible
the last musket man manages to kill the monster after 3 of his conpainons are killed
the crew of the tigress hide in cover and draw closer to the Victoria seeking the advantage of numbers
they dash up from the decks below to charge and board the British ship
the tigress slams inot the gunboat and they jump
a pirate is the first now it will come to steel
the gun boat draws away but 3 make it on board "repel boarders" Eddie shouts
the other pirates get ready when close
Flashheart takes them on face to face, pistol and sabre in hand "Enter the man who has no underwear. Ask me why. ? Because the pants haven't been built yet that'll take the job on! "
her crew now on the gunboat the Queen seeks to follow
bloody hand to hand fighting now begins swords and bayonets and pistols all clashing
the Crocs lide off away no takeaways today for them
the action now stale mates and the combatants try to out man the other
a stray shot fells the Queen still on the Tigress
RSM Boradge bayonets his way past the pirates
numbers of boarders start to fall and British take the upper hand
Flashheart slays the last pirate with his sablre and victory is his
he boards the tigress to capture the Queen of the Serpents " Right! Let's dig out your best booze and talk about me till the cows come home"!
Victory " I like it firm and fruity. Am I pleased to see you or did I just put a canoe in my pocket? Down, boy, down."
Great game took some getting used to the ship movement but as always IHMN is great , really enjoyed, (I hope the quotes did not offend anyone)
