I have a pretty large force of 15mm French and Germans for 1940. They are based for FoW and are pretty sizable. Can anyone suggest some rules to use.
I have already done Blitzkrieg Commander and Flames of War.
Looking for something new

Fireball Forward is another possibility. Or Schwere Kompanie

Have you tried PBI? No need to rebase.

There is a PBI "Fall of France " day on 18th January at Entoymnet (Poole). There will some battle reports from that I am sure.

PBI is a one to one representation, but infantry are in weapon or rifle groups.
Here is a summary of the rules.
In addition there are a bunch of videos about PBI.

Good luck with your project.

Battlefront:WW2 is a great set of rules and works well for Blitzkrieg.

I second Crossfire for infantry focused games, with a few tanks.

Hey Guys, I probably have some 50 stands of infantry and 20-30 vehicles per side, so looking for rules that can handle that.

Spearhead for games 1 base=1 squad. 5-6 bataillons would be around 40 stands, 20 vehicles. Thts a large game and in 150% for 15mm (my recomendation) it would need a 8*6 table.

Dexter Ward11 Dec 2019 10:40 a.m. PST

1 base = 1 platoon in Spearhead.
Battlefront:WW2 is 1 base = 1 squad and one model vehicle = 2 or 3 actual vehicles. Manoeuvre units are companies (usually 9-12 stands for infantry), and up to a battalion a side with armour is the ideal sort of size to play.
More info and lots of good scenarios here:

A fistfull of tows III will handle that as well.
