Well, this was a real treat. Local wargaming luminary, Grady (and his gracious (even if she fought for the wrong side) wife) put on a game of Turning Point Stalingrad for a group of us. TPS is an Avalon Hill area/impulse wargame from 1989, and I have to say it’s one heck of an elegant system, with plenty of interesting and tough choices (even if you’re playing the Russians). I must say that I had a great time commanding the southern front for the Soviets. To top it all off, my side was declared the winner.
I’ll let the pictures of the exquisite 1/285 terrain and miniatures speak for themselves. (I pretty much have to, as I’m posting on lunch break from work)
Grady is going to be running this game at Nashcon, and if you have the opportunity to attend, you should definitely play!
