RS Moon campaign 1 Daleks vs Nazis

Quick errata on method.  Or, no plan survives contact with reality.  I decided to not reinvent the wheel.  A simple map and dice rolls.  2 D6 rolls for combatants, first is the aggressor, second target.  Then we rolled as per normal then hit it to fit.  For some reason 5 comes up a lot.  Proper Job.  We're a fair way through now so I've a lot of catching up to do.  The reason for doing this is that I'm busy doing piratey things (you didn't see me, right?) and planning & putting together games is taking up most of my spare time.  Retired, easy life.

Game 1 11) Control terrain. 8 “Home planet” Zombies gain +1 morale. Complication 1) Low ammo.

The Daleks travail close to the Nazis home sector and must be repulsed! Control of a large chamber is essential.

5) Daleks. Cyborgs. Original style Skaro model. Prelude to a full invasion, scout forces are sent.
From Dalek Risk.

The Game.

Tony took the Nazis and set up, leaving me the initiative.  Easiest way to deal with Low Ammo, Dalek 4 suffered with intermittent weapon malfunction.


The Nazi leader took the high ground.


Daleks advance and destroy!



Hide and wait-


But not too long.




Come n get it!



I push 4 (with gun trouble) up against the leader.



The Pointystickgruptroopen worked well against Daleks, punching above their weight.



Drone 4 and the Black Dalek concentrate on the leader.



The Black Dalek takes a long shot.



A lucky hit, knocking down & wounding the drone.



That's better!


Persistent-.


4 advances and the leader tries a telekinetic throttle on it.  Causes some malfunction and loss of vision.  OneDalek down, another incapacitated.


Black Dalek pushes through and starts killing.







A drone gets the drop on the leader and he is exterminated!



Pointystickgruptroopen has broken, running away bottom right.



Sorry, these won't flip!  With 3 wounded Daleks they have a very Pyrric victory.  But the Nazis have lost their first leader for no gain.
