The Imperial Armada - Freebooter Miniatures
The Imperial Armada is fighting for its very survival in Longfall. The deal with the ELTC and the resulting ruinous rates for supplies force it to act fast. Driven into the jungle by the pirates, they are getting pretty sick of life among the plants, havegot themselves re-organised and are preparing to take back Longfall.
The Imperial Armada, once the unchallenged dominant power on Leonera, is by now fighting for its very survival. Driven from the capital city of Longfall by the pirates, they rallied in the jungle and are now ready for a counterattack – bolstered by reinforcements from the motherland and despite having to pay the ELTC through the nose for supplies.
Long-range firepower and iron discipline are the dominant themes in an Imperial Armada crew. Nevertheless, it can field some supporting close combat troops which act on the leader’s and the officers’ orders and clear away the opponent’s suitably lead-softened arquebuse fodder.
The Armada fights best at range using its highly-disciplined troops – its arquebuses are rightly feared. A well-organised chain of command and a high morale make the Armada the queen of defensive tactics.
