So I saw Pirates of the Carribean 2 for the first time the other day. I know, I should kill myself. Anywho, the plot was kinda lame but the special effects rocked my socks! I love the Kraken, Davy Jones and his crew, and especially their ship the Flying Dutchman.

It really got me thinking about the nautical fighting rules and fielding a nautical themed army (just imagine using a squidy genestealer mouth for Davy Jones!!). Has anyone ever played with the ship rules? Are they enjoyable/difficult/broken or what? Does anyone have any ideas for integrating ships in a campaign, or maybe an entirely ship-based campaign?

Lastly, feel free to share any ideas you have about converting a piratey army or any experiences you've had with ship fighting. Thanks in advance!

Mighty Empires is downloadable from specialist Games for a limited time only!

Map Tiles http://www.specialist-games.com/assets/Memaptiles.pdf

Rules http://www.specialist-games.com/assets/MightyEmpirescol.pdf

Use these rules for a land and sea based campaign. When you meet another army or fleet you get to fight a battle. There's a little bit of book keeping but your friends will love you for it.

Regarding pirate models get a box of Empire Militia! Use Mordheim Marienburgers for Ship Captains. Yaar!

Catferret, you are awesome. Excellent links. These will be mighty helpful, pun intended.

Anyone have any tales of the sea to share?

Thanks Sergeant. You have been sigged! Everybody else is doing it so why can't I?!:)

The Mighty Empires stuff was hidden way down the bottom of the page and I found it by luck so have been spreading the word.

It's still a great system. Yay Dragonrage! Hope it works out for you!

Has anyone tried the boat rules as found in the General's Compendium? Those looked all right, but I haven't played them yet.

Alternatively, just start a Zombie Pirates army.;)
