We've known for a while that fantasy-themed Memoir '44 wasn't far off, but it is good to know now that it is more than a rumor. I'm sure this game will sell like crazy! Agincourt with goblins, dwarves, and elves sounds pretty weird, but I'm sure it will be fun. The miniatures look great, and I'm sure the production values will be in true DoW over-the-top quality. There won't be any hollow plastic GMT dice in this one.
I do sincerely hope they balance all the scenarios this time. At least with a fantasy theme they won't have history to blame for wildly unbalanced battles.
I also have to say that as a completist, I hate promotional figures! I still recall the Heroscape Nerak promotion last year where Toys 'R Us would only give the figure to you if you were under 18 (perhaps a message of some kind...). I'll probably pre-order the game from DoW to get the Hill Giant, but it sounds like I'll have to do some begging at Dragon's Lair to get the Earth Elemental... Perhaps Thought Hammer will get some... Otherwise, it's off to E-Bay! Argh!
