Customer notes

Requires Napoleon: Total war (base game) to use this DLC.


These units were previously available in the Imperial Edition of Napoleon.

These exclusive elite units become available on the campaign map once you have made a specific technological advancement or own the relevant territory.

These elite units will appear in both single and multiplayer game modes.

  • 7th Lancers (France) — these cavalrymen are armed with lances that make them particularly deadly when charging. The lance allows the user to put all his weight, and that of his charging horse, behind one very sharp point.

  • Brandenburg Uhlans (Prussia) — they are some of the most experienced cavalrymen in Europe and can persuade their steeds into breath-taking acts of speed.

  • 1st Hussars (Austria) — the 1st Hussars are, without exception, superb horsemen, and all have a certain independence of spirit that makes them ideal for chasing down widely scattered men.

  • 15th Hussars (Great Britain) — the 15th Hussars are made up of veteran cavalrymen, deadly in close combat and at the charge. Their speed makes them ideal for chasing down skirmishers and for dealing with artillery units.

  • 1st East Prussian Grenadier Battalion (Prussia) — only the largest, bravest men can become grenadiers; this size and strength makes them an impressive sight in a charge, and gives them an edge in melee.

  • 6th Regiment d'Infanterie Légère (France) — historically, the 6th Regiment saw action in over forty battles during the Napoleonic Wars and were awarded seven battle honours for their achievements.

  • 17th Jäger Regiment (Russia) — able to fight in loose skirmish formation or fire a massed volley when organised in line, the Jägers are an adaptable response to most enemy tactics.

  • 1st Regiment Emperor's Own (Austria) — the 1st Regiment “Emperor’s Own” is made up of battle-hardened Czech troops, as deadly with their bayonets as they are excellent marksmen.

  • 18th Regiment d'Infanterie de Ligne "The Brave" (France) — The 18th Regiment are revered by their fellow countrymen, who know them as "The Brave." They are experienced soldiers and that makes them valuable on the battlefield.

  • Moscow Musketeers (Russia) — formed into a disciplined line, they can unleash a massed volley into an enemy then, while the enemy is reeling, follow it with a decisive bayonet charge.

On one hand, the units are pretty nice, my favorite being the Emperor's Own, as the brown-clad regiment is a nice change for an army dominated by white uniforms like Austria. On the other hand, I'm not exactly a fan of paying for a handful of extra units. Napoleon Total War has a pretty active modding community and they add dozens, if not hundreds, of units, without paying a dime.


Nice content, but a bad price.

Heroes of the Napoleonic Wars brings some very, very nice content in Napoleon: Total War. Among other units, that are usable in both singleplayer and multiplayer, there is the 18e Regiment d'Infaterie de Ligne, also known as "The Brave". There is a total of 10 new units, for different factions. There are Hussars for the Austria and Great Britain, French Lancers, Musketeers, Prussian Grenadiers and many more. Like I said, Heroes of the Napoleonic War brings a lot of nice content to the game, but the price may not be that good, however, definitely get this on a sale.


Full of quality content.

Napoleon is my favourite Total War game and this super-cheap DLC does not dissapoint. It adds units which were previously only for owners of the Imperial Edition. The good thing is that the units are A LOT (10) and will keep you interested for a long period of time. Definitely get the Napoleonic War DLC if you are looking for new stuff in your Napoleon: Total War.
