The base game is purely base game components. For the most part, all expansions are exclusive to just that expansion and the base game.

The major exceptions to this are the Air Pack and Campaign book which try to bring together all the expansions into more detailed scenarios.

Pacific Theater should come with 10 scenarios and off the top of my head, all 10 feature the USMC and their rule set.

As far as war-games goes, i' waiting for BattleCry to arrive and that's where I'm gonna start with. I' looking for another WWII/sic-fi game. CoH looks pretty good, although quite complicated as it seems. And I'm trying to justify whether to invest that 50 bucks on a single set of CoH or get base+expansion of M44--whichever one that yields max replay value-- tough choice!

All of the base game scenarios were re-released with the Air Pack. Many were updated and revised to improve upon their original design and/or incorporate rules released after the base game was released.

Both are excellent games but vary greatly in complexity. I own both and have had far more play with M44 largely because it is easier to find opponents and it has quicker play which fits well into my schedule.

As far as replay value, one can get tired of those base M44 scenarios pretty quickly. Fortunately, there are plenty of free official and unofficial scenarios online. CoH has extra free ones online too.

It is rare that anyone can but "just" the base M44 game though.

I second that^

But not this^ because We've(I play with my family) played those base scenarios countless times and haven't get enough yet(really).
The wonderfulness about M44 is that you can try different strategies each time and after several sessions the game keeps being "juicy" enough to provide fun, excitement and laughs. It really is one of our favorite board games ever!
And, we own other expansions that we haven't tried yet(like the Eastern Front and Mediterranean Theater) So for us, this game will last for years to come and totally worths every penny.

Yeah, in retrospect I probably stated that too strongly. You make excellent points.
