I was wondering what the best first expansions to get are for M44 now that the game has been out for a few years and there is numerous expansion packs.

Start with any of the army packs. All they require is the base game, yet adding new armies with different rules.

I started with the Pacific Theater, and I'm well pleased with it. It is great. Almost everyone else recommends Eastern Front. A lot of the other expansions beyond the army packs and terrain pack require other expansions to fully utilize the scenarios.

If you're looking at Campaign Book Volume 1 down the line, you'll need Terrain Pack, Air Pack, and Eastern Front. So, maybe that is a good place to start.

Breakthrough still requires expansions if you want to play all the scenarios, so I wouldn't make it my first until you get some more expansions.

IMHO Breakthrough and the Air Pack are the least essential apart from the backpack which is totally uneccessary.

They don't come out with new expansions all that often so even a thread a year old is still applicable. Even at that, my recommendation from 5 years ago is still applicable: Buy them in the order produced (in other words, get the Army packs first). Then explore the other ways to play: Overlord and Breakthrough. Air Pack is awesome but not a good first investment and you will need Terrain Pack to get the most out of it.

This one is recent, all encompassing, and on-going. It gives you a quick glance of what you should be looking for based on the most answers.
