My FLGS received this notice from their distributor and asked if I wanted to pre-order the upcoming Memoir:'44 "Equipment Pack."

Quote:
The Memoir '44 Equipment Pack is a major expansion to the Memoir ‘44 game system and fills a game box as big as the original board game. 186 plastic figures in total, the Equipment Pack includes: 108 figures from 4 WWII nations, including French Infantry, Finnish Ski Troops, Italian Artillery and Polish Cavalry; 24 new pieces of Artillery (Flak-88’s, “Long Tom” Big Guns, M7 Priests and “Screaming Meemies” Nebelwerfers); new Beach Landing equipment that includes 6 amazing Hobart’s Funnies, complete with accessories; 6 Snipers; and scores of new Armor, Vehicle and Special Weapon Assets, including some Elefant Tank Destroyers, Kübelwagen Command cars, and M2 Mortars and Machine Guns.

These figures can be deployed over many of the existing Memoir ‘44 scenarios and are also heavily featured in the 10 Standard, 2 Breakthrough and 4 Overlord new scenarios that come in the Equipment Pack. A 32 page Rules booklet and 25 Summary cards complement this pack. This expansion requires at least one copy of the Memoir ‘44 base game. Many of its expansions are required to enjoy most of the included scenarios. We highly recommend that, for visual accuracy, players at minimum own the Terrain Pack and the Winter/Desert board.


I haven't read any posts about this item and I didn't see it listed among the expansions. Is this new news? Old news? "You'll believe anything" news? Can anyone shed any light?

Sounds awesome. I hope the Scenario Editor will be updated for the new pieces.

How much $$$ were they asking for the pre-order?

That's a good question. I didn't ask and they didn't say. I can find out tomorrow. I hate to guess, but it seems to be as full of stuff as the old BattleLore. I'll hazard ~$80 retail.

I'll put it on my BIROC-list. That's "buying it regardless of cost" list.

A sensible addition to this Equipment Pack would be a second base board.

True, but that would actually cause me to pause and reconsider my FOTWA (Funds Out The Window Automatically) purchase since I already have two base boards and two desert/winter boards. I really do not need another board.

On first blush its sounds great. But then I question if I really need most of that stuff. Many of the things mentioned (Finnish Ski Troops, Polish Cavalry; Flak-88’s, "Long Tom" Big Guns, M7 Priests; Elephants, Snipers; Mortars and Machine Guns, Kubelwagens) we already have badges for, which generally speaking, are good enough for me.

Some new things mentioned seem like they'd be fine with a badge, like the Funnies. I don't know what the "new beach landing equipment" would be unless its tractors like they used in the Pacific. Though I'd think they could be simulated with a new badge on a standard landing craft (or on a tank).

The stuff I really want isn't mentioned, Tigers and halftracks. Yeah, I know they published them earlier, but most are out of print. What they really ought to replace are those thrice damned US artillery pieces!

The German arty pieces are just as bad, but I've already replaced them with superior quality minis from the A&A collectable range.

I don't want to see any duplicate stuff in a 'new' expansion (either boards or minis)

If this is true, they certainly could shut up and take my money. Though it would be nice to see an official announcement (if only for pictures of the new figures).

My FLGS contact is one of my gaming buddies. I told him to put me down for two without even thinking! If it's a joke, it's one of their most elaborate—and a good one on me!

I am not certain about the FLGS of the OP, but xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx has it up for $xx.xx: This is the only OLGS I have found with the preorder thus far.

I have just noticed that the OLGS I referenced does not have the item available for pre-order any longer. I am not certain why, though I suspect it may be due to DoW not officially announcing the expansion yet. I have edited my original post to remove the OLGS and the initial pre-order price in fairness to DoW and the OLGS.

Thanks!
