As of 3/22/15, I plan to make a Great Battles of WWII scenario for Narvik which will be in combination with General Quarters 3 rules for the naval portion. I may try a different approach of not a strictly historical approach. But rather I plan to give the players the option to X, Y or Z (rushed invasion ranging to deliberate with pluses/minuses to what might actually show up). Then matrix the two choices to see who actually shows up first, the British or Germans… and play it from there.

Note: General Quarters 3 plays very differently than the top picture. One need not guess the range on the assumption that each ship’s captain had staff and range finders for that.
