I waited a time to get the new Dominators from Warlord DR who into the vortex game, and on receiving and paining some sets I was eager to try them out, I set out a small table using the GW blasted Hallowheart terrain set and grabbed 3 cards worth of characters each side, the Daleks numbered 7 and the Dominators 6,. A simple game 6 nodes and go for it!
Dalek patrol leader and 2 patrols of 3 I found them quite formidable in the game and wondered if the Quarks would stand any chance against these metal bad boys
The Dominators were 2 Dominators with accompanying Quark and section of 2 Quarks
Bit of terrain looked ok a reason i bought the set simple and effective.
The teams make for the nodes the Daleks moving faster
each side securing nodes till lines of sight were engaged
the Daleks get to the center of the table first
the Dominators creep in the ruins then all hell breaks loose
A d by a quark blast the amour saving the surrounding daleksalek is hit
the Quarks move into position
Another node then the full fire power of 3 Quarks is unleashed on the Daleks
after a volley of blasts 3 daleks are destroyed and the leader shocked wounded
the Black Daleks uses fate tokens to recover and prepare to return fire
Another Dalek falls and a Quark is blown up on the far side
The Black Dalek amid the ruins of his patrol blast the quarks destroying one and felling a dominator
A lone Quark is under fire and unable to respond
on the far side a Dalek gets close to destroy a Quark but A Dominator charges his armor shrugging the fire and he destroys the Dalek in a flurry of attacks
The Black Dalek moves in for the kill having destroyed another Quark
The dominator waits in cover to get close and attack in melee
The Black Dalek fires but again the armor saves the Dominator
He closes and in hand to hand combat destroys the last Dalek . victory to the Dominators
Impressions: Dominators tough use as hit and run hand to hand the Dominators are very good there body armor ignoring energy blasts, the Quarks blast weapon is devastating. use on groups you roll alot of dice even at long range.
Daleks split up you move faster and combine with move or stand and shoot you will out gun most thing, lesson learned fighting the Dominators.
Overall a fun game as always loads of twists and turns make it what you want enjoy real fun...
