RS Moon Science Faction Daleks make a grab for the Astagar Trail Boss.

The Science faction Daleks did well against the Nazi's seeing them off with relatively little damage.

Now they learn that the Astagar have acquired a space demon for home defense. 

 The advantage of a space demon is that it (is supposed) eats both the fresh fruit and the assailant.

This game probably runs during the time- frame of the last 2. Making the assault while others distracted. We rolled Interrogate, Space ship & Space demon.
Interrogate: Tn15 leadership.
On ship, any miss roll on collateral damage p38.
Space Demon Huge, Claws, Tough3, Weaponmaster3.

The Game.  Tony took Astagar and I got the initiative.

I came on good &  strong without resorting to a chit.

Sneaky White robot!

Attack group Dalek advances.

And gets shot.  The game doesn't go well for this one.

Dopee slithers in quick, hoping to take the Dalek out.  He gets a hit in but then gets hit from the Red Top Dalek.

The Red Top is targeted in retaliation.  Equal pegging so far.

The Trail Boss moves in.

Yellow comes on but stays hidden.

Second assault Dalek and Black Top move in slowly.

Dopee takes more damage, lots pins & 2 wounds.

He manages to get up & make it to the Yellow for medical assistance, but that's him out of it.

We advance!  But a near miss triggers a security bot.

Skaro Standoff.

Won!  But it's not destroyed.

Shrugging of his damage, the Red Top & crew go hunting the Trail Boss.

Trail boss gets the drop and takes one out.

The second Yellow makes its appearance and another miss messes up the gravity - which is now on a low setting.

Pesky security bot, why can't the hit anything?

Oh No!  Reduced gravity has allowed the Space Demon to escape! On trend or what?

Go- Away!

A second bot arrives - clutching at whatever's to hand here!

The Boss moves in, damaging the RedTop, who attempts to apprehend/stun him in return but to no avail.

Another miss from the security bot causes a leak (or gravity malfunction) sucking everyone back until a poor Dalek colides with the fault, sealing it but being exterminated in the process.

That crams everyone together.  Space Demon takes a great interest in downed Dalek.

Nom nom nom!

The Black Top tries to take it out, but it just soaks it all up - a couple of misses causes a spill and a damaged cable.  Handy things, CD's.

As a final indignity, the Dalek suffers a head bite that destroys the eye stalk.

Meanstwhile, back on the other side--.  The 3some continues, but everyone's getting punch drunk.  A miss by the Red Top causes a poison gas leek.

Guess who misses, causing a huge steam cloud.  The Trail Boss takes out the last drone.  Hang on, I started with superior forces!  Damn bot and Space Demon have evened the odds!

And another miss from the bot.  This time it's an explosion right by the intended target, and the Red Top is obliterated!  That leaves me with one serviceable Dalek, but it's the meanest-.

The 2 Yellows make a real mess of shutting off the gas.

The bot gets bashed before it can do anymore damage!

At which point, with the gas eventually stopped, the Astagar make a hasty retreat.  They could have all ganged up on the Dalek, but they'd won with the loss of 1 robot and 1 badly wounded to 3 Daleks obliterated and 2 badly damaged.

The Dalek that stuck his plunger in the breach.
