Daleks invasion of Swamp Town

The Daleks are now attacking Crystophon Marrs who is hiding out at a shanty town. The Daleks are after the Extrapolator shielding Marrs has.

The Swamp Town has a +3 modifier to the Unwanted Attention table but Bounty Hunters and Shock Troopers are replaced with Ruffians. Reinforcements are likely to be numerous but not high quality.

Both the Daleks make their armoury rolls saving 100 credits.

Something suspicious has materialised in the forest. This is not a teddy bears picnic Doctor,.

The Black Dalek and the Special Weapon Dalek both go up a level and reduce their the activation numbers by 1 for 1 of their powers.
The Daleks also upgrade their ship with an Armoury, this doubles the effect of a successful Armoury roll before the game.

One more game and I will have completed all 5 Dead or Alive missions with my Dalek crew.

Its much easier to remember the scenario complications when they have a physical representation. Remembering the minefield is really hard, as is the Robot network. The last complication is the Hostage rescue. I need to find a scientist who can help the Daleks reprogramme their battle computers to defeat the Movellans.
