Indeeedy yes. Be great if you have any pics.
As for rules. I think the best bet is go for something simple to start with. And generally, if it's sort of 1/72 scale you're doing, you have to decide between 'skirmish' rules or 'company' -type rules, depending on how many figures you want to play with.
Skirmish type rules are for a few figures, maybe just 6 to 12 each side. You base the figures separately (metal washers are good) and the weapons the model has are the weapons they use. You might be able to have a couple of tanks too.
Company type rules are if you have 40 figures or so. You might base them in threes together for example, to represent squads of 10. Or you could just use single figures and have each figure represent ten men. Then one tank represents three tanks, or whatever.
There are also battlegroup-type rules, like 'Spearhead', which you usually use 6mm stuff with and then you can have humungous battles.
I use Battlegroup Panzergrenadier rules for WW2: they're company-type rules and they're also good for larger tank battles.
I think, that if I was going to start again, I'd first download some free WW2 skirmish rules from the internet. You just Google for them and there are loads. The shorter and simpler the better - perfect rules you can fit on one page. I'd give that a go with the single-based figures until I could play without looking at the rules. Also with skirmish it's quite fun to play both sides too. Then, once you've got the hang of it you buy some more sophisticated rules. Or write your own even.
