If you created pre-printed paper maps (folded for storage) and used the unit tokens included in the Overlord Expansion, then I think you would end up with a very easy to transport and set-up version of Memoir '44. You could even print the map at a smaller size and stack the unit tokens in each hex.

Only bulky items would be the dice and cards. I haven't done this yet myself, but I thought I would make the suggestion for anyone trying to create a travel version.

What I am seeing in my mind is something like the older pocket editions of Ogre.

Cards are the hard part. Dice are no problem.

Maybe an artscow or other online printer could be used for a set of miniature cards.

And are probably heavier and less convenient to carry than what I have suggested (especially if we create some alternatives to the Command Cards); also, you might need power cords and outlets.

Print out the maps so you don't have to fuss with the terrain.

Actually someone on BGG created a set of dice that can replace the cards. It's in the photo section.
