Project Wesrubung is my own attempt to make scenarios that occurred during the invasion and conquest of Norway, April-June 1940. I soon realised that, especially for the Norwegians, there were very few official and custom cards and of those that were available, few were tailored to this campaign. I therefore embarked on the formation of a set of cards that could be used in playing my scenarios that could be used along with official cards that fit my purpose.

I use printed custom cards allot, but I really prefer professional looking solid card, and so early on I decided I wanted to make an actual deck of cards, Something that allot of others clearly wanted and have done themselves.

I am virtually computer illiterate and so thankfully I was able to enlist the help and support of mjc721, who is my official card creator. Although I feel reasonably comfortable at stating and pointing cards, it is a complex issue, and so again I was grateful to obtain some help in this area from a custom card guru RAEVSKI.

I had originally posted here my initial two scenarios, but they hav undergone major and minor changes and so will be released in their revised format at a later date. The cards you see below were done by mjc721 for those scenarios and serve as good example of the cards that will be produced, although they also have changed to some extent.

The scenarios I will be creating will be a mixture of standard point and objective scenarios that can be found in the official rulebook, along with non-standard battles that will have their own victory conditions and set-ups. Some of the Standard battles may also have some historical flavour special rules and set ups. There will be a small set of General Rules that apply to some of the scenarios. These will include some slight changes to the rules when fighting the non standard battles.

The current scenario line up is as follows:
1/2) Assault on Oslo - Group V v Oslo, non standard and standard 100 pt.
3) Assault on Kristiansand - Group IV v Kristiansand - non standard.
4) Assault on Southern Norway - Groups IV and VI v Arendal, Egersund, Kristiansand and Stavanger - 100 pt standard.
5) Assault on Bergen - Group III v Bergen - 100 pt standard.
6) Assault on Trondheim - Group II v trondheim - 100 pt standard.
7) Vestfjorden - Group I v Renown and DD's - Non standard
8) Narvik Harbour - 3 German DD's v Norge and Eidsvold - non standard.
9) Lofoten - Scharnhorst and Gneisenau v Renown and DD's. - 100 pt standard.
10) 1st Narvik - Group I v 2nd Destroyer Flotilla - Non standard.
11) Breakout from Narvik - Captain Bey's attempted breakout from Narvik assisted by Scharnhorst and Gneisenau - not sure yet.
12) 2nd battle of Narvik - Group I v Warspite and DD's - non standard.
13) Assault on Northern Norway - Groups I & II plus S & G v Narvik, Tronheim and Brits - 300 pt standard.
14) Sinking of the Glorious - Scharnhorst & Gneisenau v Glorious and 2DD's (Acasta & Ardent). Non standard.
15) Operation Juno - S & G plus Hipper and 4DD's v British Group II evacuation convoy from Narvik (part of Operation Alphabet) - Slightly enlarged convoy scenario.

You should use the land based torpedoes that the Norwegians used to sink blucher. Check seas ablaze forum for examples.
