I am new to WWII gaming and bought the Rommel rules as a starting point. I love the idea of fighting large scale actions with 6mm figures. I am interested in any early war Desert scenarios or late war Battle of the Bulge scenarios. Any tips are welcome.

There's an early war desert scenario in the rulebook (Deir el Tarfa) and another one you can download free from the Honour website (operation Brevity).
There are some scenarios on the hnour forums, although not a Bulge one as far as I know, but you can easily construct such a scenario using the lists in the book,

6mm is indeed a great scale for big WW2 actions. Models big enough to see the type and enjoy the detail on the models, yet small enough for easy storage and a more convincing space feel on tabletop!

Thanks for the info. I was thinking of trying GHQ minis. Now I have to decide whether to do early desert or the bulge. Since I love that campy movie Battle of the Bulge, maybe I should order some Chaffee and M-47 tanks and have a go!
