Ok so it looks like BKC II might be a good starting point for a set of fast play WW1 rules. But what does every good set of WW1 rules cover?
Well here's a summary of the specialist rules covered off in the various sets I own;-
Command & Control - limited comms. / fog of war / lack of initiative etc.
Gas / Chemical weapons
Air Support - very limited ground attack capability / arty. Spotting
Stosstruppen - elite infiltration tactics
Indirect MG barrages - and the use of MGs in defence
Trench Warfare - bunkers / dugouts / pillboxes / barbed wire
Artillery - pre-planned barrages ( Rolling, box, lifting, hurricane etc) / on/off table field guns / counter battery fire
Tactical Advances 1914-18 - just the shear change in warfare during this short period.
And last but by no means least.........
The early AFVs - armoured cars at first followed by the tanks later!
So there you are. All I need to do is bolt some rules for these onto BKC II and I'm good to go!
By the way, here's the rest of my research material......
