One friend made a cartoon from a pirate battle we had this week-end.

It begins when three pirate ships appear near a Spanish town, and attack a small fishing boat the "San Guacamole de la Constipación". The fishermen fight back but not for long…

Sorry it's all in French…
(…except a few words in Spanish as one side is "Spanish" but certainly with language mistakes, apologies to our Spanish-speaking friends here!)

Sacre bleu!

Arrrr, 'tis a cryin' shame about me inability to read French, sans a few words here an' dere.

Still, thanks fer sharin' de report, and most of all, de pics matey!

Looks like an excellent battle on de 'igh seas, an' some nice lookin' vessels bein' captained by de fortunate scallywags.

I'd love to find out more about the rules being used for the vessel maneuvering, and combat, since the sailing templates and info on them look intriguing.

Hope they will be converted into de Queen's English one day soon, if dat hasn't been done already.

That´s very interesting looking battle. I share with Mako11 the inability of reading more then some words french and the interest in the rules because I am still searching good ship´s rules useable for 28mm scale.

Which rules do you use? Are these available in English or even German?

Maistre Pique19 Mar 2013 3:46 p.m. PST

I work on an english version of the cartoon right now…

For the rules, I still need some time to finish the final writing, You will need to wait a bit more…It will be called "Per Mare Et Terras". You will recognize the "by land and see" moto of the french marine infantry. It will be usable with most 28mm skirmish rules.

Excellent Maistre Pique!

Thank you for translating, and sharing them with us.

I'd be happy to offer my services to assist with translating your naval rules into English, when the time comes, and/or to assist with a bit of proof reading.
