The first thing I have to say is that the rules appear to be very simple on first reading but in fact they are far more subtle than they seem. In the case of IABSM most sections would be made up of three bases for the section with 8-9 figures per section and then the section/squad leader is based separately. Painting 12mm is a lot easier than 28s or even 15s.

The recent publication of Dave Brown's battalion level Second World War rules 'O' Group has been a further incentive, particularly as the same figures and basing would work for both rule sets.
