  New Memoir '44 Equipment Pack - largest set of figures ever! Wed, 06 June 2012 10:57
68 years ago today, Allied forces unleashed over 150,000 men and thousands of tons of equipment along the coast of Normandy.

This year on the anniversary of D-Day, Days of Wonder announces the Memoir '44 Equipment Pack. This is a major expansion to the Memoir '44 game system and fills a game box as big as the original board game.

http://blog.daysofwonder.com/wp-content/dow-uploads/2012/05/m44_equipment_pack.jpg


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 11 Standard, 2 Breakthrough and 4 Overlord new scenarios that come in the Equipment Pack. A Rules booklet and 25 Summary cards complement this pack.

At least one copy of the Memoir '44 base game and 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.

The Memoir '44 Equipment Pack expansion is expected to be available in time for Gencon and at better game stores in North America in August, and in Europe in September.

17 new scenarios is great.

I think it was a smart move by DOW to include the miniatures from the battlemaps. Although I have them it removes the need to own the battlemaps to play scenarios from other and future expansions. Smart move.

I see only 2 Willy's in the picture. Did one go out of range?

And am I right in sayng I can't see any " Long Tom" guns?

Looking forward to this one.

What were the specific accessories for the Hobart used for?

Some figures are not displayed on the box.
The Hobart's Funnies accessories can be used to clear minefields, cross rivers, ignore trenches, beaches, wire or marshes, blow up bunkers with 290 mm shells, etc. Very Happy

Are the French, Finnish, italian, polish and other nation specific figures going to be their own nation colour, or are they just going to be grey (I see grey as being good for the other weapons so that they can be used with all nations but the nation specific figures really need to be their own colours so it fits in with the rest of the game figures)

Wow! A dream come true! As many of you know from my others posts, I've been buying TOI figures from ebay, but now I can have "Official" memoir figures in my scenarios. Below is a picture of the Battle of Arracourt with TOI figures:

Nice! But would rather have them in colored plastic instead of grey.
Now I have to go invest more money in painting supplies! Gotta think of a good way to explain the extra purchase to the wife..

Figures in different colors would not only be more expensive, it would also be necessary to add several sets of special weapons. As it is now, the Acht-Acht figures stand for ALL heavy AT guns, the Long Toms for ALL big guns, the Elefanten for ALL tank destroyers, the Priests for ALL mobile artillery units, the leichten SPW for ALL half tracks and so on.

I don't think I've seen any details about what cards are included in this pack...it just says that 25 Summary Cards are included but it does not say what the cards are for. I think it would be safe to assume that if they are providing Summary Cards, they will cover all of the new units and rules.

But nobody knows how these units actually work yet. Cool

Hmmm ... so the French troops will get some special abilities just like the Brits, the Japs or the Marines? That would make it necessary to redesign all scenarios that are already using French troops with standard infantry features. I also liked the game being so easy when all troops were similar. Now, there are hardly two units on a map who have the same abilities.

Something just not right visually using Elephants to represent my U.S. Tank Destroyers..
But you know I am going to buy it anyway!

You can find a full description of the expansion, along with exactly how many of each figure there will be, over on the product page.

Enjoy! And be careful not to drool too much on your keyboard!! Cool

Thanks, there are 3 of each, thus not 6 as in the battlemaps.

When Looking at the picture (yes again ) i noticed something else, it seems like you can give the " funnies" other equipment depending on the scenario. Or not?

Regarding the special weapons (AT guns, machine guns and mortars), I still think it is easier to play with the badges than with the figures. As you still need the four infantrymen, there is simpley too little space for them on the hexes.

What I do now is use three infantrymen and the SWA figure. As casualties are taken, the infantrymen decrease. The last element of the unit lost is the SWA figure which I use to place on the opponents medal stand.

Today, to save space, we use the anti-tank weapon mini as the fourth man, and we use it to score the medal.
