Those are some big looking maps!
I'm guessing an epic-scale campaign, or a series of huge battle maps.

Nothing new!?! Surely that isn't true. Check in with your intelligence officer and see what information he has gathered from behind enemy lines. Very Happy

Those are three DoW commandos who are planning an excellent attack. For the purpose of safety I cannot reveal their identity...you never know who might be listening!! Laughing

The Verlaine verse implies a direct reference to D-Day, which would fit very well with the 70th anniversary of Overlord and the 10th anniversary of M44. So, is this a huge map embracing all five landing beaches? Is this ocean at the lower (right) edge of the map? It seems to be a little too green, though.

Just looked at the enlarged photo. It IS a map spanning all beaches indeed, so - to correct our friend Stevens - this would be a 2,5-Breaklord. Wow!

I have to correct myself: it is five beaches, but a width of three boards, so Triple-Breaklord would be correct.

I have to correct myself again: the print the guys are looking at is obviously downsized. Trying to count the hexes, the map may be even deeper than Breakthrough! Where do you take the gazillions of figures from that you will need to play this?

They look like all BT maps. Landing maps to be printed in a new serie of "MAP SETS"

I don't think we will see CB#3...instead they will keep on printing battle maps for our own good!

The interpretations so far are too limited. Use your imagination. I'll wager this is not a super-sized overlord or a campaign book (for one it wouldn't require an explanation as clearly that's what's going on in the image). It is something more...its a meta-view of the campaign.

Imagine you have the entire beach mapped out. As Axis and Allied generals the players allocate available resources as desired. The battle(s) then commence...

I'm not sure what kind of deep deployment system you're looking for (though I believe you've talked about it some before). Don't forget that Memoir '44 is a simple system at heart and I believe Richard will keep it fairly simple.

One of the many reasons that Memoir '44 has been so successful is because it's easily accessible to people who aren't 'gamers'. This success has continued for 10 years because even though Richard has created lots of expansions they all remain simple and don't add too much to the basic system.

Getting away from the simple game that we all love might have to be the job of the Memoir '44 community. If you're really looking for a nice deployment system, and this expansion isn't what you're hoping for, try developing something that matches your dream! I'm sure the rest of us would love it too!!

Maybe it's the travel expansion: small maps with small hexes and small magnetic units.

I didn't mention deployment system. I was just responding. I'm hoping for something more substantial than some rules and setup fiddling.

Hmm... I don't know...maybe a campaign system that is more than just a bunch of single scenarios strung together loosely tied by history and some die rolls.

Based on the divergent waterway it looks at first like a variation of JUNO beach.
However, I don't remember any Italians there on the left flank at Normandy so my guess is that we are looking at a North African scenario.

LOOKS LIKE BART BEAT ME TO THE PUNCH. Embarassed

6 standalone Breakthrough scenarios that link up geograhically to become the entire D-Day landings.
Can be played as a 6 scenario campaign or a multigame event with a couple of rules regarding units moving from one board to another.

DOW are not releasing an expansion that NEEDS 6 basegames t be playable. Can't see that one making much money.

Yep, I agree. Laughing It won't even fit on my pool table and certainly not a scenario for anything but a tournament or show.

Nor do I need more scenarios frankly. There are literally thousands out there and D-Day has been covered well enough IMO.

I want innovation. I might be satisfied with miniatures or additional tiles to expand the scenario modeling capability. I don't need another Utah, Omaha, Sword beach overlord, breaklord, or even a super duper overlord breakthrough.

I can't imagine this is actually the new expansion. It would be a foolish marketing decision.

However, as a marketing tool, the super duper breakthroughlord thingee is probably an attraction.

Same here. Can't see myself every playing this scenario except at a gaming conference. There must be something else we haven't seen yet?

I wonder if these are the breakthrough Normandy scenarios from campaign book 2. (Don't have the book right here to look it up).

Because of they aren't, they're probably new scenarios!?!
