I’m not a huge fan of Avalanche Press, but I’ll add Defiant Russia to the list to check out. Have you ever played Eastfront from Columbia Games? I’m strangely attracted to it.
I’m still trying to work out how to play Streets of Stalingrad 3rd Edition in a reasonable time frame though! And I’m keen to get my regular opponent to play War Without Mercy and the rest of the Struggle for Europe series, while also trying to find time to finish the Red Barricades campaign I started two years ago. I do sometimes wonder if I should focus on smaller, more manageable games. 🙂
