Valor & Victory: Shield of Cholm - out now
It’s January 1942 and the Soviet Red Army has begun a series of counter offensives against the German Army. The Germans have started to withdraw and have occupied the strategic town of Cholm. To keep the offensive going the Russians need to capture Cholm. The Germans, from their perspective, could ill afford to lose this strategic point. Very quickly, the town of Cholm became surrounded and was cut off, creating what was then called the Cholm Pocket.
The new DLC features two huge maps, larger than any released in Valor & Victory so far, and twelve new scenarios that occur on the large maps, or on smaller areas of the maps.
New units have also been introduced: Partisans, Conscripts, Russian Assault Engineers as well as new terrain types: rubble, debris, escarpments & ice.
Valor & Victory: Shield of Cholm is based on the Kampfgruppe Scherer supplement from Le Franc Tireur. It releases alongside an update of the base game: with the Battle Generator you can now create random scenarios and choose the sides as well as the scenario size and force types; with the Fog of War option opponents can now choose to be hidden when not in LOS. Also a difficulty balance has been introduced: you can manage Dice bias for a harder or easier game.
