I'm using the rules with 15mm figures, and the WYSIWYG sighting system isn't really all that feasible in the smaller scale. Cover and concealment has to be slightly abstracted to cope, but that's no big deal really, and principles from other rule sets can be easily adapted.
There are no target acquisition rules as written; again, they're assumed in the WYSIWYG sighting system. However, it's a simple matter to add them, taking into account target size, posture, range and concealment. The system used in the venerable WRG WWII rules works well, though it could do with being simplified a little.
One of the things I really like about the various Warlord rules I've seen — Black Powder, Hail Caesar and Bolt Action — is that they provide a simple, robust base to which can be added as much or as little detail as the individual gamer desires without too much danger of breaking everything.
