Finally received my EP-impressions Sun, 14 October 2012 12:56
I've finally received my copy of the equipment pack and these are my findings:

First of all, the amount of support provided by DoW for memoir is just amazing. many other gaming companies could never hope to match that! I also like the cavalry figures and upon first glance the scenarios look good too. Nice that the book includes regular scenarios, breakthrough and overlord scenarios! This said, I'm not entirely happy with it. The reasons for this are:

* It's nice 88's and priests have been added, but I just can't see myself using these units with the opposing side when the scenario so dictates: i.e. the Germans using priests for their mobile artillery and the Allies using 88's for their heavy anti-tank guns.It that case I really do prefer simply using the corresponding badges.

* It's great to finally have a French army. Then again do we have a french army? There are infantry figures but where are their tanks and artillery? Secondly, would it have been so much trouble to paint them brown or light blue? Their an army in their won right and not "equipment".

* Many barrels are bent.

* The MG's and mortars are much too large for my test. I take it the EP is mainly meant to enhance aesthetics more than anything else. these two units, along with e.g. the sniper figure, does not really accomplish this, imho.

* Instead of all the loose pieces that can be attached to the Churchill tanks (Hobart's funnies), I would have preferred to just have the Churchill along with badge or so to denote which exact variant in it is. This might have left some room for Hummels and 17 pounder AT guns, for example, which would have solved my main problem with the EP (first reason mentioned).

I already own tigers, half-tracks and trucks, so I didin't really need any more of them and would have preferred that space to be filled by e.g. french artillery and armor. Then again, I can imagine that those that didn't buy the expansions they came with are happy with them.

Does anyone share my feelings on this?
