As a matter of record, today marked a cool milestone in the Eastern Front 1914 project: the first Russian infantry division is pretty much complete. Currently it has four regiments of 3 battalions which is arguably slightly later in the war (introduction began in 1915 if I have the correct), but it is now a viable game force. Ultimately the Scenario Generation System demands two divisions for Attack scenarios, but this single division is at least usable on the table for basic encounter games.
Completion of this first division was one of my summer painting goals. Now for a wee 'mini' project that has been percolating for a while, with the first figures on the painting desk ready to go. It fits with the Eastern Front 1914 theme.. stay watching!
