So, I see a lot of discussion (much of it dated), but am looking to obtain rules for 15mm figures for divisional sized battles.

Any updates to what is already here?

Great War Spearhead?
Square Bashing puts quite a few battalions on the table IIRC.

Those two seem to get a fair amount of play. There's also a set (interestingly named) Crush the Kaiser that look interesting.

Have played both Spearhead and Square Bashing. For division level, Square Bashing looks good on the table top. Felt it was a lot more abstract than tactical level rules like Over the Top.

GDW Over the Top (Command Decision). Stands are platoons, Battalion+ to Regiment per player.

For divisions and up, Great War Spearhead and Square Bashing are probably your best bet.

It is easy enough to bodge up Nineteenth Century rules (Volley and Bayonet, Fire and Fury etc) for 1914.

The bulk of my WW1 stuff is 15mm (apart from all the 6mm and 20mm stuff!)

Thanks for the feedback, all.
