Daleks - Making 2 forces for Flying Lead & Harder Than Steel

Making 2 Harder Than Steel wargame armies.

These forces were originally designed and costed for Ganesha's Flying Lead. (FL)

The first set of HTS standards uses the first version of the rules.

The second set is for HTS v2, which uses one Quality (Q) for everything.

Imperial loyal Assault Army Rebel Suppression and Extermination (AARSE) unit.

Such units are usually up to strength but suffer from lack of veterans and specialists. Attached heavy weapons tend to be hatchlings or Uber Daleks.

Rebel Second Army Combat Team (SACT).

These units are rarely up to strength, some going into combat with 50% hatchlings. This is offset by equipping with up-armoured travel machines. Heavy Weapons have a wider range of weapon choice and are usually recruited from experienced troopers who show no wish to go for rank. Officers and senior nco's are usually experienced or veteran, some having real charisma and the ability to inspire troops. http://www.mechmaster.co.uk/cg-lair/daleks/secemp466.htm

Standard energy weapon uses a laser carrier beam to deliver a lethal or stunning electromagnetic static pulse that causes disruption to nerves and electronics. This comes in two sizes, a small short range pistol and a larger top-mounted rifle. Some Guard units are equipped with two of the pistol size weapons to facilitate move-and-shoot without overheating.
