A bunch of us met at Ralph's house for a great game set in Stalingrad. This was using his very nice (and extensive) collection of 15mm WWII minis. Also, it was the first time I had played Flames Of War. Now, I have had a 'view' of FOW for many years that has been fostered by seeing the walls of tanks and uber [unrealistic] competition games of FOW. But this game absolutely changed my mind. I really liked the way the battles for the buildings was a see-sawign struggle.
Anyway, a few photos along the way.
