Name: Alm. Carlos Pavon y Miranda
Card: SCS #069 (Rare)
Ability: This ship may move and shoot using the same
move action. Once per turn, you may reroll any die
roll you make for this ship; you must use the second
die roll result.
Most navies have a crew like this; the Almirante's
abilities are not unique to Spain. But they're very
useful on a fighting ship. The Captain is always
needed, and the reroll can serve as a replacement
Cannoneer or help out with a boarding action. This
crew really shines on La Santa Ana (SCS), which gets
a second action, or the San Cristobal (RF), which
gets a same-action-twice. A reroll for that ability
will have your big gunships double-zipping across
the waves and double-blasting your enemies about
half the time, instead of 1/3 of the time, which is
what they get without the reroll. Those ships
shouldn't leave port without this Almirante.

Name: Almirante Devante del Nero
Card: BC #209 (Limited Edition)
Ability: This ship gets +1 to her cannon rolls
against any non-Spanish ship or fort.
This almirante is your basic
world-hater. The more
cannons he can affect, the better a value he is, so
never put him on anything smaller than a four-masted
gunship; five masts are better. Most Spanish
five-masters have rather so-so cannons, so they need
all the help they can get. If you expect to do any
serious fighting under the Spanish flag, and you
don't have La Tartessos (which has the Almirante's
ability built in), then you should definitely have
this crew on your biggest ship.
