The Interceptor Squadron package is a very good starter fleet. It is designed for one player to play a large battle or two players to play a moderate size engagement. It includes everything necessary to play Quantum Expanse with the exception of standard six sided dice (sold separately). The Interceptor Squadron package is a great way to learn to play Quantum Expanse and acts as a solid building block for future spaceship purchases.
The Interceptor Squadron package includes a 36 page full color Quantum Expanse rule book, 34 spaceship models, 34 ship stat cards, 2 sets of faction cards (14 in total), 6 fighter wing cards, 50 stealth and 26 fighter wing color cardboard counters.
Quantum Expanse ships included in this package are three Pioneer class corvettes, three Sparrow class corvettes, three Ghost class frigates, three Razor class frigates, two Eagle class destroyers, two Maverick class destroyers, one Chimera class light cruiser, one Leopard class light cruiser, two Rapier class light cruisers, one Hydra class cruiser, one Triumph class cruiser, one Falcon class battlecruiser, one Knight class battlecruiser, one Avenger class battleship, one Raptor class battleship, one Claymore class dreadnaught, one Typhoon class dreadnaught, four Hammer class light carriers, and two Pegasus class carriers.
All Quantum Expanse spaceship models have identifying features which eliminate the need for firing templates and identify the ships exact location. The ship stat cards are printed on heavy card stock in full color on each side and are UV coated to protect their surfaces. The stat cards detail each ship’s combat capabilities during the battle and allow for recording of battle damage. The Quantum Expanse rule book is travel sized, 7″ tall x 5″ wide, making it easier to bring to each battle.
All spaceship models are made of resin and are unpainted. We recommend that each spaceship model is cleaned in warm soapy water and primed before painting.
