Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Who/what is the 1er?

A. The 1er Old Guard Grenadiers are a melee based regiment originally founded in Mount and Musket that later moved on to Napoleonic Wars, now with over 3 years of experience. We pride ourselves on deadly melee skills and rock solid discipline. We attend a variety of events, including conquest linebattles, grand campaign battles and some times we even host our own historical based events!

Q. What game are you playing and how can I get it?

A. This regiment is mainly dedicated to the DLC called "Napoleonic Wars" for the game "Mount & Blade: Warband", you need both of these to be able to play it, and you have to buy Napoleonic Wars from the same store as you bought Warband.
You can buy them at a variety of digital distribution platforms:

We have three to four weekly events, training on Tuesdays, linebattles on Sundays and Thursdays. We also have regular regiment vs regiment battles at different times, you will be told when these are, as well as some other events that won't appear on the regular schedule.

Schedule can be found under "events" here.

Not at all, our second company is dedicated to players located on the American continent that will have their own events more appropriate to your time zone, but you are of course still welcome to join in the 1st company's events too. If you live in Australia or anywhere out of these regions you are very likely to have connection issues when trying to play with us but you are still welcome to try.
