I'm thinking of going 6mm for this too - I just think it'll look better for the space I have when I put out a Soviet MRR! :-) Ok, maybe not quite that much, but apart from the infantry basing (which I think needs stands rather than individual figs) I can't see any issues. Speaking of which, has anyone come up with a way of converting the infantry rules to bases rather than individual figs? To avoid paperwork I was thinking something like a saving through for the target unit based on how many men it had, with success being no effect and failure being a team kill. Not quite sure how to crank the maths though to get results which broadly reflect the current impact of combat. (Obviously, rather than slow degradation, it would be spikes of casualties.)

I do with 15mm WW2 Battlegroup. Just use a mini dice or some other means to track casualties on a base. Also, having one base for each team within a squad/platoon helps. The shooting is sufficiently abstracted within the rules to not have to worry about LoS to/from single miniatures.

After seeing all the great jobs done with 20mm, I might give it a crack for Vietnam. I think the Battlegroup Rules would work well with the Vietnam era ( thinking of from Indochina right up to '75 ). Any suggestions for 20mm Vietnam ( Figures ) ?
