Default P.F. Sloan 3D ship display

For small ships like the P.F. Sloan, the 3D ship displays fit two ships on each sheet to reduce the amount of paper on the table. Down the middle of the page are the firing arcs, number of batteries, and weapon statistics. The firing arc displays are spheres that have been peeled open. The triangle shows the nose of the ship, the half-circle is aft, the top and bottom are the top and bottom of the ship, and the chevrons are the sides. White shows the firing arc, black shows where it's blocked.

To the side of each firing arc are the weapons that use that arc. Below the weapon abbreviation, each diamond is one battery. Below the firing arcs are the weapon stats, showing range bands, accuracy (roll a d10), base damage, maximum variable damage, and special traits.

Each of the 15 ships in Squadron Strike: Traveller comes with a variant, so you could say that there are really 30 ships in the set. The variants include different weapons (strike and escort variants), carrier versions, and, in one case, different jump and thrust values.

The P.F. Sloan comes in a beam frigate variant, designed to reduce the logistical load of refilling the missile magazines and making it easier to operate at the end of a long supply line.

The Squadron Strike: Traveller Kickstarter has less than four days to go and is still short of a big stretch goal. Sign up now and help out! If all you're interested in is the ships, a complete PDF bundle of the Traveller contents is only $10 (it doesn't include the base Squadron Strike rulebook, for example). Fleet scale miniatures are available, along with an assortment of other rewards, so check it out now.

Now, what if you're a Traveller fan who wants the material to use as background, but doesn't care about an actual Traveller space combat game? Well, you can pick up the Squadron Strike: Traveller PDF bundle for just $10. That includes the fleet book (6 Imperial, 6 Zhodani, and 3 Aslan ships), counter sheets with six-views of all of the ships (nose, aft, top, bottom, port, starboard), background materials, history of the District 268 campaign during the 5th Frontier War, some short fiction, and scenarios. That's good value for your money: even if you throw out everything else, you're still getting 15 of Charles Oines' gorgeous illustrations for only $10.
