The Daleks

The Daleks (pronounced "DAH-lecks") are a fictional extraterrestrial race of mutants from the television series Doctor Who. The mutated descendants of the Kaled people (referred to in the first Dalek serial as "Dals") of the planet Skaro, they inhabit tank-like mechanical casings; a ruthless race bent on universal conquest and domination, utterly without pity, compassion or remorse. They are also, collectively, the greatest alien adversaries of the Time Lord known as the Doctor. Their most infamous catchphrase is "EX-TER-MIN-ATE!", with each syllable individually screeched in a frantic electronic voice.

The Daleks were created by writer Terry Nation and BBC designer Raymond Cusick and were first introduced in December 1963 in the second Doctor Who serial. They became an immediate hit with the viewing audience, featuring in many subsequent serials and two 1960s motion pictures. They have become synonymous with Doctor Who and their behaviour and catchphrases are part of British popular culture.

My Daleks

I've painted twelve standard Daleks in a range of colours, organised into groups of three. They are commanded by Davros who is attended by two extra 'suicide' Daleks as a bodyguard.

Here we see two groups of 'classic' silver and blue Daleks trundling through a devastated British town.

Some White and Gold Imperial Daleks and some Black and Gold ones to compliment them.

Davros with some early model 'suicide' Daleks.

All Dalek figures and Davros are from Black Tree Design.

Alien Invasion Rules for Daleks

Daleks operate in squads of three.
Each Dalek rolls 6D6
Total 18D6

Davros is accompanied by a pair of 'Suicide' Daleks as a body guard.
In addition to their normal 6D6 damage, Suicide Daleks may self destruct. They each move 4D6 inches before exploding for a 6 inch area blast of 10D6.

Davros himself has no combat capability but allows the other Daleks to have linked fire.


Daleks ignore all terrain for movement calculation.
Daleks are killed by 24 points of damage regardless of cover.

In addition to any scenario specific victory conditions, the Daleks can claim a victory if the Doctor is killed.

Dalek Cards

Here are the cards you'll need to use the Daleks with the Alien Invasion rules. They have been designed so you can print them out, fold them in half and laminate them in plastic wallets. Click on the sample card to download a pdf of the full set.
