'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.

Speculation, "probably some time before 2015" would be a preferable answer, though I'm sure some people would lose interest knowing they have to wait another year. Or you could set yourself a cut off date.

I don't want to sound like I am being hostile, but your mod has been in production for 2 years now and people are getting quite impatient, maybe it's time we see the mod itself.

I once have wait over 4 years for one mod to come out. Good quality can't be rushed. Quality needs a lot of time. People getting impatient is better then people getting angry, because of bugs.

Frankly, I don't really care if people are impatient or losing interest. Nothing will make me release an unfinished product I'm not happy with, or not proud to stick my name on.
