Terrain Pack seems to be more expensive, yet needed for many scenarios

Battle Maps looks fun and adding new units sound awesome..(Overlord scenarios)

which one would you pick between those 2?

There are a few things to take into account:

1) Do you own 2 base games? If you do, Battle Maps are definitely the way to go for now because they are very fun and quite different.

2) If you don't own 2 base sets (which I'm guessing is the case), then to play the Battle Maps you'll need a friend with his own base game so that you have enough troops. Alternately you could rig something like using poker chips so each unit on the board only uses one figure or something. If you get the Battle Maps, you might think about buying the Operation Overlord expansion for the cards and the unit tokens.

3) Do you like to design your own scenarios? If you do, the Terrain Pack is great! If you like playing scenarios that other people have created (but aren't official) you'll also want the Terrain Pack.

In the end I would say that the Battle Maps will be more fun and different but the Terrain Pack opens the door to lots of interesting scenarios...but you'll end up still playing "vanilla" Memoir '44.

That depends entirely on who you talk to! You'll probably get as many answers as the people you ask...because they are all good in different ways!

Personally, I think you should get "Sword of Stalingrad" because it provides some very cool new cards (Combat Cards) that are designed to enhance Urban Combat!
