Battle of Krasnik 1914

When WW1 broke out, the Russian and Austro-Hungarian armies clashed near the town of Krasnik in southern Poland. A series of engagements took place in late August 1914. My sons and I reproduced the 7th engagement, based on a scenario that will appear in the upcoming Great War Spearhead supplement called 'Summer Harvest', which is due out soon. You can see the AAR and photos here. I didn't have time to paint up enough Austro-Hungarian forces, so a German infantry division took the stage. It featured some of the lovely Baccus early WW1 German infantry figures.

OMG. That is good


Through the travail of the ages Midst the pomp and toil of war Have I fought and strove and perished Countless times upon this star.
So as through a glass and darkly The age long strife I see Where I fought in many guises, Many names but always me.
So forever in the future Shall I battle as of yore, Dying to be born a fighter But to die again once more.

Incredible boards.  Made me think of Solzhenitsyn's August 1914 and how I pictured the conflicts described in that book decades ago.
