Most of our WWII infantry is based on 1 1/4" squares, as specified in the PBI 2 rules, though many of us put officers on round bases for ease of identification, 1 1/4" or 1 inch (a 2p piece) in diameter.
These base sizes can equally well be used with several other rulesets such as the aforementioned Battlegroup Panzer-Grenadier but also Battlefront WWII, Crossfire, Command Decision 2 and Spearhead.
This web site is dedicated to the Ztum - Setum wargames campaign being run by members of the South East Scotland Wargames Club using the AK47 Republic rules from the Rules for the Common Man (RFCM) team at Peter Pig. The name Ztum-Setum comes from the names given to the campaign area by two groups of tribes. The highland tribes call it Ztumsia while the lowland tribes insist on Setumsia.
AK47 is Peter pig's excellent set of rules for recreating the wars in Africa from the 1950s to the present. The rules are quick dutcheastindies/play don't require too many figures, and allow some tongue in cheek political manoeuvrings before the game starts.
A wonderful little blog, (cleared by Govt. Authorities), to
highlight the fun, frolic, and fantastic freaky funkiness of
the African Nation of Bongolesia in the world of AK47
AK47 and the African forces Supplement has been
written by the RFCM, (rules for the common man),
team and produced in two A4 spiral bound booklets.
The original AK47 rulebook deals with battalion level
actions in African conflicts from 1950-1990, whilst
the supplement covers African forces from 1990 to
present day and also includes Israeli actions in
Lebanon during the 1980's.

"...But should we fail, then the whole world... including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the light of perverted science..."
- Sir Winston Churchill, 1940
