    Sorry I am not familiar with either. But in order to help us help you answers to the following questions wouldn’t hurt.

    Armour only, infantry in support of armour or armour in support of infantry?

    How many minis (or bases of infantry assuming 1 base=about a squad)?

    Game space (table size)?

    D6s only, D10s preferred, or any one specific di(c)e, or a mix of dice?

    Sorry if the above seems odd but lots of games and gamers have definite preferences. What floats your boat may not float mine but hopefully we can help guide you.

    Why not download both and have a read? GHQ publishes them for free as PDFs on Wargame Vault here https://www.wargamevault.com/browse/pub/3697/GHQ

    From what I can see (and I’ve not played this scale or period for many a year):

    Micro Armour
    1 sq. inch stand = 1 platoon 1 inch of terrain = 100 yds/meters 1 turn = 3 minutes battle time

    MicroSquad
    1 miniature = 1 vehicle/weapon, 1 inch = 25 yds/meters, 1 turn = 1 real time minute

    How that plays out to your figures and basing depends on the answers to ‘madman’ above.

    Sorry – I’m having forum issues and may not be able to post links as links and my BBCodes is rusty…

    Thanks for the infos but it’s too late. I have just ordered the MicroSquad book with a few models.
