Memoir’44 Equipment Pack []

I’m actually a real Memoir’44 Fan and I have at home almost everything published for this game system and also many scenarios downloaded from the net. So, of course, I was really thrilled reading the announce of this expansion and also really happy finding a preview copy in my mailbox!

The first things Memoir’44 Equipment Pack offers is an huge amount of plastic bits packed in a box in the standard Days of Wonder size. I’m been really happy discovering that the box also provides plastic zip locks in different sizes for all the pieces and, as usual for Days of Wonder games, no need to glue or cut. One of the vehicles in the box, the Hobart’s Funny, has several different accessories that you can use in different scenarios, from mine digger to assault bridge, just inserting the piece in small hole on the vehicle. They suggest to glue something but it is not really needed.

The complete list of bits (you can found it on the Days of Wonder website or in BGG) more than 100 miniatures from minor nation (I’m not so sure to be happy to be part of a “minor nation” but, I think, this is the History) including French Infantry, Polish Cavalry, Finnish Sky Troop and Italian Artillery and another 24 artilleries miniatures going from Long Tom Big Guns to Flak 88. I really like the Nebelwerfer figures and the smoke shells rules. Going on on the list of bit you get 6 Landing Crafts and the 6 Hobert’s Funnies with the accessories. Than a fistful of tanks: 3 Tigers, 3 Sd.Kfz 250 and 6 Elephant Panserjager; 12 veihicles including 6 Kubelwagen command cars; Snipers and special weapons.
