Terminator Genisys Scenario: Surgical Strike

John Connor has assigned a vitally important mission to Captain Montero’s strike team. The small Resistance team is to attack and destroy the radar installation covering the airspace over the Cheyenne Mountain base. Will the Resistance Soldiers be able to penetrate the Skynet defences?

We persuaded Alessio Cavatore to write this brand new scenario for your Terminator Genisys games – and we’ve created a special Objective Assault bundle deal to help you gather everything you need (scroll down for details…).

SURGICAL STRIKE – The Mission

As part of the preparations for the assault on Cheyenne Mountain and LAX airport, John Connor has assigned a vitally important mission to Captain Montero’s strike team. The small Resistance team is to attack and destroy the radar installation covering the airspace over the Cheyenne Mountain base. That way, Skynet will not pick up the wave of air assets that will be inbound to give air support to the main Resistance force that is about to storm the Machines facility.

Objectives

Resistance Player

Primary Objective: Destroy the Radar

The Resistance must destroy the radar – see scenario special rules. You achieve this objective if, by the end of the game, the radar has been completely destroyed.

Secondary Objective: Damage the Radar

You achieve this objective if, by the end of the game, the radar has been damaged.

Machines Player

Primary Objective: Protect the Radar
You achieve this objective if, by the end of the game, the radar has not been destroyed nor damaged.

Secondary Objective: Terminate attackers

You achieve this objective if, by the end of the game, all Resistance models are dead.

Deployment

The Machines Player deploys first, placing all of his models within the perimeter delimited by the obstacles. Resistance models are not deployed and enter the battle as described for the Incursion set-up (see page 50 of the rulebook), except that they can enter from any point on any table edge.

Tactical Edge

In the first turn of the game, the Resistance player automatically rolls the first Fate die.

Game End

At the end of the fifth turn of the game, the player with the Tactical Edge rolls a D4, if the result is 4, the game ends.
If the game continues, at the end of the sixth turn, the player with the Tactical Edge rolls a D6, if the result is 4 or more, the game ends.
If the game continues, at the end of the seventh and following turns, the player with the Tactical Edge rolls a D20, if the result is 4 or more, the game ends.

Victory!

When the game ends, the player who has achieved his side’s primary objective wins the game. If the player has just achieved his secondary objective, the game results in a minor victory for that player. It is entirely possible for either player to achieve his secondary objective only, which results in a minor victory. If neither side has achieved their primary or secondary objectives when the game ends, then the result is a draw.

Special Rules

Attacking the Radar

The Resistance must destroy the radar. This is done exactly as described in the Demolish mission on page 48 of the rulebook, except that the first time a model detonates a charge by moving away, the radar is just damaged. The second time this happens, the radar is destroyed.

Anti-tank obstacles & barbed wire

Anti tank obstacles are size 1 barriers, but they count as impenetrable terrain for vehicles and open terrain for non-vehicles.

Strips of barbed wire are size 1 barriers, but they count as impenetrable terrain for Resistance non-vehicle models and open terrain for everything else. They don’t provide any cover.
