The Days of Wonder facebook page today had some images of what looks like new minis (armored car, a new tank) and tokens (Molotov cocktails?) and some different looking terrain hexes. Is it a new Russian expansion? It had a tagline: "Winter is coming... prepare for battle!"

Hmmmmmmm . . . I like.

They look like Stuart light tanks. Might be very useful in Pacific Theater battles. I like the Molotov Cocktail idea too!

Conversation at GenCon 2015 with a DOW employee was that more content was being developed and it would be more along the lines of the Equipment pack. Looks like this confirms a lean towards that.

No kidding! They could make a small fortune just re-releasing the Air Pack and Tigers in the Snow!

Top mini looks like a Russian armored car -- most likely a BA-10. The token in the bottom image is almost assuredly a Stuart light tank, but the mini looks like a Japanese Type 97 Te-Ke Tankette. Both early-war stuff.

Would love to see an official Khalkhin Gol scenario.

Those don't look like Stuart's to me, look a bit like T70s.

If DOW has gone out of the way to create new board art there will likely be a new board format. My guess will be a deeper ocean/beach format, something like 5 or 6 ocean hexes or a variable coastline.

Because it says prepare for winter... It could mean Eastern Front and Bulge specific scenarios... Can't imagine DoW would go after the obscure North Pacific front and the recapturing of the Aleutian Islands.

I like the idea of a pan-expansion that will benefit all the existing content.

My heart goes out to all who did not grow with this game or who got into gaming after content became scarce.

I guess we get to wait and see... Hopefully the next expansion hits online shops before Christmas... Put me down for x2 copies.

I dunno. It's got the right number of bogey wheels and the large rear wheel to be a Stuart, but the front does look a bit weird. Maybe the later modification with sloped glacis plates? We'll see. Finally, some more Memoir!

Richard Borg gave some details recently about a new expansion in the Memoir'44 official forums.

In theory it does include new preprinted maps but no new format to arrive. Scarce details about what would include. But seems that they are serious and the new expansion is right there at the corner.

Those are great news!

…so do all who live to see such times but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.

With the popularity of M44 they'd be crazy NOT to give us a new expansion.

I certainly hope not, the lack of correct colors for the pieces was a real bummer for it. That and the partial armies, French infantry but not the armor and artillery to go with it. I would rather see 'correct' army packs like they did for the British, Soviets and Japanese. Even an equipment pack with correct colors...why have the Tiger tanks be white?!? Who is going to use them other than the Germans?!?

I know more molds and the like, but for a great game like Memoir' 44 they are doing a disservice (IMO) by having a half baked equipment pack.

Well they've been crazy enough to not reprint some very highly sought-after OOP Memoir items. Soooooo.....

I wish they'd do Tarawa in a dedicated pre-printed scenario.

Also wish they'd move into post-WW II. Would love to see Korea, Vietnam and Middle East.

The A/C looks Soviet. The tank silhouette looks M3 Stuart-ish, but not the mini, unless it's a "generic Light Tank." As has been stated, the mini looks Japanese, or Soviet (T-26, maybe?).

In any event, it is good to learn that there's new M'44 material in the pipeline.

True to that... The EP plastic was horrible.

I need to go back and rework the one I created.

I asked Richard about this when I met him a few years back...
The answer back then was... Not going to happen.
Modern tactical warfare does not play into the L-C-R format.

Yes, I am excited about the new figures and badges. But let's focus on the board for a moment.
They say winter is coming, but I do not find the boars very "wintery" is it Fall?

I'd put an Italian expansion at the top of my list. Though its probably a battle map-style expansion. I'd even be excited about a partisan/resistance expansion or completing the French army. I have no interest in more Japanese units.
