We are proud to announce release of Napoleon’s Eagles mode, also known as Historical Battles mod. This multiplayer mod has been part of NTW3 mod package for Napoleon Total War from its very start and is now also available as a stand-alone mod. The mod is fully compatible with all other modules of NTW3 mod by the Lordz Collective. The NE mod deals with the historical engagements of the Napoleonic Era. A number of historical scenarios had been developed with the purpose of giving players an opportunity to fight and, importantly, change the course of the battles of the Napoleonic Era. NE mod aims at achieving a good balance between historical accuracy and immersive gameplay, with a strong emphasis on realistic representation of Napoleonic warfare on both strategic and tactical levels.
Version 8.5 of Napoleon's Eagles with the Emperor's last victory of LIGNY included and lot of fixes changes to existing scenarios. Full stand alone installer, no need for any previous version.

Napoleon’s Eagles 8.5 release notes and log file
Battle of Ligny
The Empire last victory of Ligny represented in two different scales at battalion size, with a reduced battlefield focused on the main fightings at Ligny and Saint Amand/Wagnelée and the full battle at regimental size with the wings of Grouchy and prussian III Korps involved, perfect choice for a monster 3vs3 scenario. The usual attention has been employed reaserching and developing the detailed map with real topographical data and historical recreation of villages layout.
Detailed order of battles for both scenario with 220+ units present in game with historical uniforms and facings.
