This post is about fluffy SIGNATURES.
(quote Kehl's: 3/4 people make these lame signatures to inform us of facts and statistics of a particular subject.
Copy this into you signature if you're part of that 1/4 who can rise above this and who actually have some class and taste about them.
)

You have seen mine often. I'll give a try to another one.
So this post is about funny sigs with a strong corsair flavour.
Enjoy, take some inspiration if you wish.
PM me or post below if you see or imagine (for anyone to pick up) other fluffy salty sigs.
Thanks.

If you find a way to imrpove the drawings below, that would be great.
See 5 posts below for the coding of the drawings.

If you like sigs but not corsairish, have a look to the following thread instead: Druchii sayings! There should be more!

But also, I came back every time to my beloved home, which I found the nicest place on Earth, I brought back the riches from oversea to my beloved family where I found a deserved rest, before I was ready to get underway again for adventure and glory.

Yay Themed signatures!

Will have to work on one for me...

But I'll just put my allegiance on my sig for the moment.

Post subject: 

Calisson, I used your name in my sig. I hope you don't mind but as you tend to be out telling people how to use Corsairs effectively alot of the time in the Army List threads it made sense.

I had an idea, if perhaps we could make a sub-division of Team D.net for tournaments. Perhaps have a T-Shirt design for the Brotherhood and wear it if you take a Corsair themed army to a tournament?

I will be hitting the tournament scene in NZ next year and later in Britain once I've finished University and move back to Scotland. I thought it would be cool to have some representation for our 'Team', yet still remaining as Team D.net.

EDIT: Calisson mate why haven't you changed your Rank to Corsair Captain yet?

Perhaps have a T-Shirt design for the Brotherhood => 8) I'd need one! For the motto, I suggest any of the sigs above.

Calisson mate why haven't you changed your Rank to Corsair Captain yet?=> I was waiting for the 1000th post as a Corsair. Now I could change, but I haven't figured out any appropriate title yet (mentioning both "Corsair" and the "D.R.A.I.C.H." :? Should I ask for help?).

Author:  Zardock [ Wed Jun 17, 2009 7:09 am ]
Post subject: 

If we decide on having a generalised one, perhaps just Brotherhood of the Coast on the front in some stylised font, with a motto of your choice on the back?

I mean I would have to put Cult of the Serpent on mine, otherwise how ever could I explain the COB in my army?

As for your title, maybe you should ask, I can't think of any conceivable way to make those two go together.

Hi again guys!

I haven't been on here for a while, a combination of having a new PC to install and University life seem to have stopped me, but I came back during free time and remembered the commarardry I enjoyed here, so here I am!

:D

I still havent managed many games with any list, but the full lot is near painting completion, so I just have to wait for my friends who are starting the hobby to finish their painting and modelling and everything is good to go and I'll be sure to let you know.

How is everything going for the rest of my Brothers?

hey guys got told to join in here as id be right at home. have just started playing DE and have made a corsair list...room for a big un'?

Author:  Calisson [ Sun Jul 19, 2009 9:05 am ]
Post subject: 

Three topics in this post. Distinct, but linked togeter in some way. :?


=========================================

1. Welcome carpet among the Brotherhood! :D

I added your list in this thread on top of p.3.


=========================================

2. D.R.A.I.C.H. Classic Army Lists
This thread is about how to build sucessful lists around different tactics and themes.
Nightblade183 has indicated a will to revive his thread.
There are many themes for different armies... except a Corsair / raider / Lokhir list. :(

Here in the Brotherhood, we should be able to define what should be a competitive AND corsair-fluffy army. 8)


I suggest we took two paths, as I defined in carpet's army list thread.

A) Fluffy list, :D for the pleasure of playing a raiding party, somehow competitive.
See in my first post of this thread which units fit best the purest corsair fluff.
Lokhir is leading this list, of course!

B) The most competitive list, :twisted: with minimal corsair fluff/style.
One unit of corsairs per 1000pts seems a minimum, and probably a maximum, too.
Zardock suggested a fluffy way to include BG and COB, Thanatoz did it for WE, WarpGhost for COK. There is no restriction, the fluff can be tweaked!
Where there is a will, there is a way! (Lenin)


=========================================

3. Lord Veshnakar's My Huge Dark Elf Army (Refresh for newest pictures!)
We can welcome Lord Veshnakar in the Brotherhood. :o

- Lokhir's mini is taken (as a Dreadlord/Master on Foot with Two Hand Weapons)
- seashells basing on most models
- Slave Objectives
- Cauldron of Blood w/Death Hag BSB with an incredible octopus conversion
- octopus (pennant) and sea serpent (shields) theme for warriors,
- 21x2 Black Arc Corsairs with 2HW full command and option for champion with or without repeater handbows
- octopus and sea serpent (shields) theme for Repeater Crossbowmen,
- 10x2 Black Arc Corsairs with Repeater Handbows
- octopus (pennant) theme for Execs & BG
- octopus decoration for COC.

With no doubt, this army has a strong corsair flavour (and may even have an ocean's smell, thanks to the seashell and the starfish).
Obviously the fluff did not restrain Lord Veshnakar to take whichever unit he wanted.
That is a great inspiration for option B) above.

I'm sure 1st Mate Zardock, lookout in the crow's nest, agrees that it's an awesome corsair army. ;)

Post subject: 

Welcome Lord Veshnakar unfotunetly my computer isn't letting me load up all the images, but the ones I did see looked impressive!

Do we make preposals for the 2 lists here?
even though my current list is Khainite-I still have a lot of love for the Brotherhood, and of course Corsairs, I just think Witches and Execs are cool

Author:  Calisson [ Sun Jul 19, 2009 5:43 pm ]
Post subject: 

@ Edtharion: from Veshnakar's army, the COB is the most impressive and Brotherhood related:
Cauldron of Blood w/Death Hag BSB
Image

@ Edtharion Do we make proposals for the 2 lists here?
It would be more convenient to start two new threads and to post here the hyperlinks. This would allow separate discussions.

I have explored a corsairish balanced list:Calisson's analysed approach to a balanced corsair army., however, it is not that fluffy nor that competitive. Fun to play but needs improvements in order to become more competitive.

I'd like any of you mates to start the appropriate threads and keep the discussion alive.
Suggested titles for the two threads:

Discussion about a Corsair fluffy list

Discussion about a Corsair competitive list

Author:  Carpet [ Sun Jul 19, 2009 6:48 pm ]
Post subject: 

The problem is striking a balance between the two lists! Ive been sat at work all day with the DE book open writing lists-what a headache! It isnt all bad as I met 2 new gamers today that gave me small tips...although one saw the book and simply quoted "Dark Elves hey....well somebody has to play with them"

Author:  Malcontented [ Sun Jul 19, 2009 10:21 pm ]
Post subject: 

Although i am but a dark elf newbie, i fully intend for my army to be heavily raider themed. The bulk of my army will consist of Corsairs and units intended to compliment their nature of warfare. The seizing of slaves is the primary focus of our army and to not include corsairs for me would seem strange

Author:  Zardock [ Mon Jul 20, 2009 4:42 am ]
Post subject: 

Carpet, that player is most likely a veteran, used to the old 6th edition Druchii, now we have alot more killing power, once you get the hang of your army and get a few games in with him, he may regret ever saying that. :twisted:

May I say that wow that COB look superb!!! Vesknakar, excellent work there mate.

I must accelerate the Shrine of the Serpent project, but I still haven't found a suitable serpent model to use as the basis for the sacrificial platform's main structure. Anyone see anything on the net please let me know, I need something relatively large about the size of the Khaine Statue from the COB we have at the moment. It should be able to support a platform (obviously with a bit of remodelling) which will hold a Corsair priest gutting a slave and kicking him into the pit below the statue.

Thought I'd send out another call for help, really want to get my list out of modelling and into the field.

Calisson I may just start a discussion about a fluffy corsair list then, seeing as I used to run what has been considered 'purist' corsair list.

Added my input to that thread Calisson, I just however realised that noone has posted pics (to my knowledge) of free-hand corsair banner designs they would like to share with the Brotherhood?
