"Battlecruisers at Jutland" scenario

Here is another thing I did at HISTORICON this past summer. This is a WWI naval game I ran utilizing the Fleet Action Imminent (FAI) rules. FAI is the General Quarters 3 (GQ3) World War I variant. The GQ3 system is a very realistic set of rules and yet the games flow very nicely and once all the participants have the hang of it the turns move very quickly. These rules produce a very satisfying result. I have run many GQ3 FAI games now and every time I introduce someone new to these rules they have always gone away quite impressed. These rules can be procured from Old Dominion Game Works and no, I am not connected with that company. I'm just a guy having some good naval wargaming fun! In this scenario I used 1/3000 scale models from NAVWAR. These are nice, inexpensive models. They are a nice compromise between the very small 1/6000 scale models that are now very popular and the traditional 1/2400 scales models. Unfortunately, as far as I know, there is no one in the U.S. that is currently selling this line of models. If you want them, you have to contact NAVWAR directly. They are located in England
