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.

As you said, alot of the stuff looks complete, but that is only what he has shown images and videos of. However, I think it is probably near completion.

Honestly though, I don't find Napoleonic Wars that bad. Yes we expected alot more from it, but it still can be quite fun playing those 150+ public sieges.
Anyways this mod definitely looks like what Napoleonic wars should have been, maybe 10x better :D --Good Luck Doc--

It's the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War and yet no one seems to care.

Turns out Ed Catmull is a dirtbag. I'll never use textures again.

Goodbye productivity. A new Dwarf Fortress had been released.

I am now officially the same age as Biggie was when he died. I think that's depressing.

I'm a pacifist, you know, but I want someone to find out who's attacking Taleworlds' servers and go Wu-Tang on their ass.

Just heard the latest AOTP album. Insanely good, that.

Big thanks to the guy that donated to the mod with someone else's account and got my PayPal funds frozen. I don't really like to eat, anyway

It actually boggles the mind how completely and utterly incompetent MLB Umpires are. What a joke.
