I finally received my Equipment Pack and my impressions were pretty much the same as before I got it. To wit: If you're interested in buying expansions after the base game, get this one early, so you can use the figures as they come up in more complicated scenarios.

The point of the figures is to replace the badges.

I think there were 4 Tank Destroyer badges in Winter Wars, so having 6 figures means we can get official scenarios with 6 TD units (1 per unit)

French Army:
I've been using both my French Resistance badges and my buddy's badges to have one on each unit even though "badges are not required".
The French Army is the one unit that's usable with just the base game.
Since M'44 has strong French support, I bet they were asking for their own infantry figures.
I'm glad you mentioned painting, because since these are just for Allies, unlike the other figures that can be on both sides (excepting Tigers), they can all be painted one color.
I've played a couple dozen scenarios with French Army rules. It doesn't come up very often, but adds flavor for those 1940 F.A. and Free French scenarios.

I thought Hobart's Funnies / Churchill Tanks was supposed to be one focus of this expansion but there doesn't seem to be many scenarios for them. We need more scenarios for them, I think. I'll go back and check where else they might be used as variants.

Tigers and Supply TrucksI think there was a question of what to do for out-of-print expansions with figures. If you have them, then they will be extra. If you don't have them, then there might not be enough for all scenarios.

Italians:
I've played over 100 games with Italian High Command rules (before getting Equipment Pack) and had a great time. Battle of Nezuet Ghirba is lame for showcasing the new and old Italian rules. Of the 4 scenarios in EP Bonus Scenarios book, I'd recommend Italian Diversion at Gazala, then Operation Little Saturn, which were fun.
