Well I’ve been stuck at home since the end of March, which has meant I’ve managed to get plethora of miniatures painted.

Stalingrad 1942

Stalingrad was one of the major battles that became a turning point in WW2 on the eastern front in Russia. Hitler decided to launch a new offensive in July 1942 with the aim of taking Stalingrad.
