At last got round to playing the Dr who Exterminate game, used the solo rules (that work wonderful). a simple scenario escape off the other side, looking at the rules and play i picked the Dr and 2 sets of 3 humans armed with earth weapons. the stats I talked to Rodger and co and they seemed fair, they had to escape off the opposite edge, but between them were 3 units of 3 Daleks!
The Story: The space security ship lands on the barren world of Issue, the Captain Tye and her agents steal the Daleks plans from a remote station and meet the mysterious Dr. who explains the escape route to there ship is now blocked by a force of Daleks intent on killing the Astronauts.
Eager to make a run for it the hero and his group of space security Astronauts readied there guns and wits.
There path was blocked bu the mercy less Daleks intent on exterminating all who tried to escape.
The party decided to let the enemy come to them trying hard to make for cover against the deadly fire that is to erupt about them
The Daleks has a simple solo rules to follow and worked great, they advanced to get better shots at the humans
The security astronauts opened fire on the metal monsters one stunned others taking fire.
Blaster fire stunning a security man behind cover
Captain Tye pistol stopping one Dalek as it flanked but others closed in.
Astronaut Gabrielle shouting encouragement at her crew as she fired into the advancing Daleks
Dispite considerable fire the Daleks still moved forward even under fire they can shoot.
Captain Tye sees the flank over run a crewman is hit but not killed
As crewman Blake turns he is bathed in electric fire and slain
The Daleks push on the centre and flank
Captain Tye take careful aim and the shot blows the metal monster to pieces
The Dr shouts the crewman to make a run for it but as the other jump the pipes he stumbles and faces his old foes alone
the Daleks fire but his luck holds and explosions around him he still lives
Captain Tye , Brent and Taylor face a single Dalek
the main force advances on the Dr!
he takes one wound from the advancing fire/
Concentrated fire destroys another Dalek
Brent rushes to aid the stumbling Dr his rife blazing, the advancing Daleks turn slowly and fire
the brave astronaut dies in the energy from 4 Daleks
The Dr using the diversion makes it over the pipes and tells the astronauts to run like never before
The Daleks move past the battle and bodies scattering the field
Gabrielle covers the escape her rife firing at the approaching Daleks and the Dr encourages all to move.
The gun fire only glances the oncoming Daleks who fire at the escaping humans
Gabrielle empties her rifle at the closest Dalek.
the monster is shocked and stunned by the carnage
The perusing Daleks still chase the humans who are almost at the escape rocket
A stray blaster shot stuns Gabrielle who falls perhaps her fate sealed now
the Dr is blasted by the advancing Daleks but still stands he grab Gabrielle and ushers the crew men into the space ship
Taylor and Cory make it to the ship shouting to the others to get in fast.
The Dr, Captain Tye and Gabrielle make a last effort and climb aboard as the Daleks continue to fire as the rocket lifts off...
Thoughts on the game, for me its loads of fun the mechanics do work and the solo game was actually loads of fun, the stats and numbers work well. the forces I believe are very well balanced the Daleks are relentless and able to fire even when having a under fire token, the humans I used were of this stat line Move 6 , Resistance 2, Melee 0 and Shooting 0 i used the human weapons on the cheat sheet and the Dr had his screwdriver.
Love this and happy i got my mojo back and this shoved it up to 10 again
