I was looking for a 15mm compatible ruleset for WW2 and found Battlegroup Kursk.

To get started for Eastern front scenarios, I am thinking about building a German and Russian army (infantry box + tank box for each side) using 15mm miniatures from Plastic Soldier Company:

Regarding the rules, I assume that I will need the Battlegroup ruleset and the Battlegroup Barbarossa scenario book?

What is the recommend way and size for basing the miniatures if you are using 15mm? Would you group them or base them individually?

Looking forward to your feedback. meeple

I'm a fan of basing individually and using Warbases trays. I generally use a small metal fender washer for individuals, with roughly a 20mm diameter.

The PSC boxes are fantastic and will give you plenty of options in the 15mm range.

As to base rules (no historical background or unit stats), if you don't mind a PDF format, they can be had for £5:

I have the printed mini rule book and the PDF, and will likely pick up the new full-size hardcover at some point.

I don't have the Barbarossa book, but will eventually. We use the Kursk sourcebook for mid-war engagements as I have mid/late war Germans and friends have the Soviets.

Thanks for your response.

Great gaming table you have...

The Kursk sourcebook would be the "Battlegroup Kursk campaign supplement PDF"?

Thanks! Yes, that's the one...the books are fantastic. Plenty of background with standard and historical scenarios. Battlegroup quickly became my go to WW2 minis game.
