'Lo,

Today we'll take a look at Chevau-Legers Polonais de la Garde Imperiale, some the most elite cavalry in the French army.

Originally created in 1807 by Napoleon to serve as an elite bodyguard recruited from the Polish nobility and landowning classes, they were unquestionably the most famous cavalry regiment of the era and frequently cited as one of the greatest of all time. The Polish Chevau-Legers proved their incredible aptitude for combat time after time at several of the period's major battles.

Their most famous exploit was probably at the 30 November, 1808 battle of Somosierra Pass, where the Spanish had set up a desperate last attempt to halt the French march on Madrid. A single squardon of the Polish Chevau-Legers charged the Spanish army, artillery and all, head on and captured all four of their batteries. Though half the squadron was killed or wounded in the charge, they carved a permanent name for themselves in the annals of history.

In the 1809 war against Austria, they saw action at several of the major battles of the Austrian front, including Aspern-Essling and Wagram. The most noteworthy battles of the war.

In the mod they'll be available to French officers recruiting in Poland. They were only armed with lances (thus their better known name, the 'Polish Lancers') after the War of the Fifth Coalition, so they serve as light cavalry in the mod.

I think the real question is, is this mod still being developed? :P I'll wait as long as it takes as long as I know something is being worked on

Anyway, looks great, and cant wait for it to come out! Napoleonic Era is an interesting time, and the mods that feature lined gunfire are very fun in my experiance

For all of you saying "Hurry up I'm getting impatient, finish the mod already," this mod is if someone took NW, spent 10 years on it (in which these guys had only one or two years, starting from scratch. AI better than any mod (because they can use cannons Hurrah! and steer ships, and play instruments), realism thirty times better than ANY mod, graphics are unreal, and to top it off with all the pressure from the community, this mod will take years, not three weeks.

Bit weird to say "this mod will take years, not three weeks" as if it's been three weeks and people are impatient. It's already been two and a half years, people aren't exactly trying to rush them, they just want to know if the mod will ever come out.

Finally finished redoing the starting quest. I think I probably typed 'smugglers' 5,000 times.

@foroMountBlade I don't know when he actually made that stuff, but I did mine way before that thread was made.

Apparently dudes sitting in taverns are all the rage, so here's this T.co Actually did awhile ago, but I never showed it

@Mount_and_Blade I filled it in for you. I also left a funny (or possibly offensive) comment at the end. See if you can guess which it was!

Just spent two hours trying to figure out what I did to cause a crash on the menu. I had a tab indent were I needed a space. God dammit.

Hey, @PutinRF, any chance you could delay World War 3 until after Bannerlord comes out? Thanks.

Mar 1 2014, 12:01pm

Well, we put the Americans in their place. Now for those filthy Swedes.

Feb 21 2014, 3:11pm

Hey @FUNCreators can you keep me updated on all your game releases so I can make sure I don't accidentally buy one of them?

Feb 14 2014, 9:46pm

Say what you will about Bannerlord's graphics. At least it doesn't look like an early PS2 game.

Feb 13 2014, 1:29am

T.co New Dark Souls 2 screenshot. Apparently it's built on the Morrowind engine.
