Nazis On Skaro

Once the Weird Nazis invented an inter-dimensional portal, the whole universe was at their mercy

"Skaro. That looks like a good place to invade", said Hitler one day (except that he would have said it in German with English subtitles. Or would have been dubbed.)

So an invasion force was assembled, and Skaro was invaded.

You can't go wrong with decent air-support.

Ah! Local inhabitants. How dangerous can they be?

They have air-support too. In fact the big saucer is the relay for ...

... their command centre!

The stage is set for a battle between the evil Nazis and the peace-loving inhabitants of Skaro. Scouts report that the inhabitants refer to themselves as 'Daleks'.

"Sounds Slavic," says Adolf. In German.

The Daleks have mercenaries, who move to occupy some rubble.

Meanwhile the Nazi air-force moves in on the Dalek right flank.

An aerial battle ensues. A Valkyrie holds off the Dalek anti-gravity platforms ...

... until the Flying Saucer comes in to assist, downing one of the Daleks.

The Valkyrie falls to the other Dalek, however, and the aerial battle continues. The Daleks had artillery support as well, but it's not pictured since it actually had no material effect on the battle.

Things got desperate for the Dalek's air units, but they held off the invaders.

Meanwhile on the other flank a Nazi Werewolf Battalion moved to attack the mercenaries. They were driven off.

The Dalek's Command Saucer entered the fight, outclassing the smaller Nazi saucer. Its shields were even proof against the dark sorcery of the Fuhrer himself.

An overview of the battle. The aerial engagement still dominated the centre. The Nazi airship played little part in the engagement.

The Nazis committed one of their Death's Head Battalions to the support the fight, but the Dalek's Command Saucer saw it off.

More casualties for the Nazis, as the Dalek's mercenaries finished off the werewolves.

The Nazi saucer was also shot down.

The Fuhrer sacrificed another virgin in order to power a magical assault on the Command Saucer, but still couldn't breach its defences.

A Nazi success - the horrific Demon Panzer clawed its way through some of the mercenaries, feeding on body and soul. Yum!

Unfortunately the Fuhrer was now surrounded and exterminated.

The main Dalek line was not engaged, and its only action was a small advance in order to pin Nazi troops and prevent them coming to the aid of their commander.

Skaro was saved from the rules of evil. The Daleks were free to live in peace.

I can't believe I hadn't fought a 'Hordes of the Things' battle between my Weird WWII Germans and the Daleks before. So this was it. The Nazis had a few chances at gaining an advantage early on, and Hitler's sorcery was dangerous enough to threaten the Dalek's command saucer a couple of times. So the battle could have gone either way - in the end the Daleks got the upper hand and the Nazis couldn't hold them.
