rip ur legendary threads project?
It's still being worked on, the progress is just a tad bit slow now. I promised the 12th in the past to create a thread for them (went some time over, but it's finally made now). And now I had to make this one. But it's still definitely going to happen.

Discord regiments = irrelevant
never seen a good discord reg in my entire 12 years of NW
I agree that for regiments, Teamspeak is the better choice. It offers much easier management, and the UI is very simple. People might argue that you have to pay to host Teamspeak servers while Discord is free... however, Discord bots are too expensive if you want good ones.

Just gotta find a trustworthy host.

Spasibo! You are always welcome. We currently have a temporary Discord server as I am hesitating between Discord and Teamspeak. I'll give you the link asap.

Was surprised to learn from third parties that you took the name of a regiment whose leadership rested on my shoulders. I think you'll be confused a lot because of that lol
I understand that you were the previous leader of this regiment. Since you didn't return to NW after being asked several times (that was a while ago) I genuinly thought you had left the Forums and the game for good, so I chose the name because it's one of my favorite historical regiments. Lots of regiments have had different leaders and versions over time (ex. 17e, Preobraz LG, 92nd...) just to name some. Also, our tag is a bit different, like putting the rank before the name, and we're clearly an English speaking group.

This historical regiment is very dear to me and you have my word that I will make sure it is handled with care and respect.

Good luck mate! My best wishes
Thank you, best wishes to the 23rd as well.

Reserving space for miscellaneous stuff.

Thread is finally ready.



                    The Life Guards Grenadier Regiment is thrilled to announce our formation on July 19, 2024! As a newly established regiment, we are dedicated to ensuring everyone
has a great time and enjoys a positive, inclusive atmosphere as we dive into the thrilling final days of NW. Our mission is to create a community where people who
love participating in events like line battles and sieges can come together and share in the excitement, all while maintaining a friendly and welcoming environment.

Our vision is to bring together a diverse group of players who share a passion for historical reenactment and tactical gameplay. Whether you're a seasoned veteran
of Napoleonic Wars or a complete newcomer, you'll find a place with us. We're all about fostering friendship and good vibes, so it doesn't matter where you come
from or what your skill level is. Everyone is welcome in the Life Guards Grenadier Regiment.

In addition to our main events, such as organized line battles and siege events, we also love to unwind and have fun on public servers. You can often find us on
popular servers like Tropical Paradise and Minisiege, where we enjoy casual play and friendly banter. These sessions are a great way to relax, practice your skills,
and get to know your fellow regiment members in a low-pressure environment.

But that's not all! We're also planning to engage in 1v1s against other regiments. These events will include both line battles and group fighting, offering a chance
to test our tactics and teamwork against other skilled players. It's all in good fun and helps to strengthen our skills and unity as a regiment.

One of the key principles of the Life Guards Grenadier Regiment is flexibility and understanding. We know that life can be busy and that not everyone has the time
to commit to rigorous schedules and strict activity requirements. That's why we've created a regiment where you can participate at your own pace without the
fear of being kicked out for inactivity. We value quality time over quantity and believe that everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy the game without added

For those who have never joined a regiment before, this is your perfect chance to experience the friendship and excitement of being part of a group without the
usual pressure. You can dip your toes into the world of organized Napoleonic Wars gameplay, make new friends, and enjoy a variety of events tailored to ensure
you have a fantastic time.

The Life Guards Grenadier Regiment is more than just a gaming group; it's a community where people come together to share their love for history, strategy, and
fun. Whether you're participating in a large-scale siege, battling it out in a 1v1, or just hanging out on a public server, you'll find a supportive and enthusiastic
group of players ready to welcome you.

So, if you're looking for a relaxed, enjoyable, and inclusive regiment to join during the last days of  Napoleonic Wars, look no further! The Life Guards Grenadier
Regiment is here to provide you with a memorable and fun-filled experience. Join us and be part of a community that values fun, friendship, and the thrill of
historical battles. We can't wait to see you on the battlefield!


As we’ve mentioned earlier, we completely understand that life can get incredibly busy, and we want to make sure you’re not stressed about the possibility of being
removed from the regiment simply because you’re not always able to be active. At the Life Guards Grenadier Regiment, we’ve designed our participation policy to
be as flexible and accommodating as possible. We recognize that everyone has their own schedules and commitments outside of the game, and we respect that.
You won’t have to worry about falling behind or facing any penalties if you can't make it to every event or session. Your real-life obligations come first, and we’re
here to support that.

Our approach to participation is centered around making sure everyone feels comfortable and valued, regardless of their availability. Whether you can join us for
every battle or just pop in occasionally, we’re happy to have you on board. The idea is to enjoy the game and the company of fellow players without the pressure
of strict attendance requirements. We want everyone to feel welcome and included, no matter how often they can play.

Now, while the regiment does have a structured hierarchy, it’s really more for organizational purposes and to ensure that everything runs smoothly. We’ve got a
leading officer who takes on the primary leadership role and a few Non-Commissioned Officers (NCOs) who help with managing the day-to-day activities. Their
job is to make sure that everything stays on track and that we’re all having a good time. It’s important to note that the hierarchy is not about enforcing strict
rules or creating a rigid environment. Instead, it’s designed to help with coordination and to keep things looking neat and professional.

The official roles within the regiment are meant to support the overall experience, not to impose authority or create a sense of hierarchy among members. The
goal is to have a well-organized group where everyone knows their role and can contribute effectively, but without any unnecessary pressure or stress. We’re all
about maintaining a fun and relaxed atmosphere where everyone can enjoy themselves and feel part of a supportive community.

In essence, you’re here to have a great time playing the game and connecting with fellow players, and we’re here to make sure that experience is as enjoyable
and stress-free as possible. Our focus is on creating a positive environment where everyone can participate at their own pace and enjoy the game without
added pressure. So, feel free to jump in and be part of the fun whenever you can... no worries, no stress. We’re excited to have you with us and can’t wait to
share many enjoyable moments together!


Lifeguards Grenadiers during the 1700s
                    Forging a Legacy: The Early Bravery and Discipline of the Life Guards Grenadier Regiment

The Life Guards Grenadier Regiment, one of the most prestigious units in the Russian Imperial Army, was formed in 1756 under the reign of Empress Elizabeth.
This elite regiment quickly established a reputation for exceptional military discipline and extraordinary bravery, becoming a symbol of the Russian military's
prowess. During the Seven Years' War, the regiment played a crucial role in several significant battles. Notably, in the Battle of Kunersdorf in 1759, the
regiment, then known as the 1st Grenadier Regiment, executed a bold and decisive attack that turned the tide of the battle in favor of the Russian forces.
This engagement showcased their strategic importance and their ability to perform under intense pressure. The following year, in 1760, the regiment further
cemented its legacy by being the first to breach and occupy the suburbs of Berlin after a fierce and bloody assault, demonstrating their relentless
determination and combat effectiveness. The regiment's valor was not confined to the European theaters of war. It also distinguished itself during the Russo-
Turkish wars, where its soldiers exhibited remarkable bravery and tactical acumen.

The significance of their contributions is highlighted by the fact that the first recipient of the prestigious Order of Saint George the Victorious was Lieutenant
Colonel F. I. Fabrizian, an officer of the regiment. He was awarded the 3rd degree of the order for his gallant actions during the capture of the city of Galați
on November 15, 1769. This honor underscored the regiment's critical role in expanding and defending the Russian Empire. The tradition of excellence
continued as Brigadier S. P. Ozerov, commanding the regiment, led them to a decisive victory at the Battle of Kagul on July 21, 1770. Ozerov, along with
Battalion Commander Colonel Count S. R. Vorontsov, who later became a renowned diplomat, both received the 3rd degree of the Order of Saint George for
their outstanding leadership and bravery in battle. These recognitions further solidified the regiment's storied history and its contributions to Russian military

Elite of the Coalition: Lifeguards Grenadiers in the Napoleonic Wars

The Lifeguards Grenadier Regiment played a vital and distinguished role during the Napoleonic Wars, which spanned from 1803 to 1815. This period was marked
by a series of conflicts between the Napoleonic French Empire and a shifting array of European coalitions, of which Russia was a key participant. The regiment's
actions during these years contributed significantly to the eventual downfall of Napoleon Bonaparte and the reshaping of Europe.

Early Campaigns (1805-1807)

The regiment's involvement in the Napoleonic Wars began with the War of the Third Coalition in 1805. This coalition, comprising Russia, Austria, Britain, and
Sweden, sought to contain Napoleon's expansionist ambitions. The Lifeguards Grenadier Regiment was deployed as part of the Russian contingent under
General Mikhail Kutuzov.

Battle of Austerlitz (1805)

The Battle of Austerlitz, also known as the Battle of the Three Emperors, was one of the most significant and devastating defeats for the Coalition forces.
Despite the ultimate loss, the Lifeguards Grenadier Regiment demonstrated exceptional bravery and discipline. Positioned in the front lines, they faced the
elite troops of Napoleon’s Grande Armée. The regiment held their ground against repeated assaults, buying crucial time for the rest of the Russian army to
regroup and retreat. Their steadfast defense, however, came at a great cost, with heavy casualties.

Eylau and Friedland (1807)

In 1807, during the War of the Fourth Coalition, the regiment participated in the battles of Eylau and Friedland. At Eylau, fought in harsh winter conditions,
the regiment was part of a force that launched a fierce counterattack against the French, helping to stall Napoleon's advance. The battle was particularly
brutal, with both sides suffering significant losses. At Friedland, the regiment again found itself in the thick of the fighting. Despite their valor, the Russian
forces were eventually outmaneuvered, leading to the Treaty of Tilsit and a temporary cessation of hostilities.

The Patriotic War (1812)

The Lifeguards Grenadier Regiment's most notable contributions came during the Patriotic War of 1812, when Napoleon launched his ill-fated invasion of
Russia. This campaign proved to be a turning point not only for the regiment but for the entire Napoleonic Wars.

Battle of Borodino (1812)

The regiment’s valor was on full display during the Battle of Borodino, one of the largest and bloodiest single-day engagements of the Napoleonic Wars.
The Lifeguards Grenadiers were stationed at critical points along the Russian defensive lines, including the Raevsky Redoubt. Here, they faced intense
artillery bombardment and multiple waves of French infantry assaults. Despite being heavily outnumbered, the regiment's staunch defense was
instrumental in inflicting severe casualties on the French forces, contributing to Napoleon's failure to achieve a decisive victory.

                    Moscow and the Retreat

Following the Battle of Borodino, the Lifeguards Grenadier Regiment was part of the Russian forces that strategically retreated, drawing the French deeper into
the Russian interior. The regiment entered Moscow shortly before the city's abandonment and subsequent burning. The harsh Russian winter, combined with
constant harassment from Russian troops, including the Lifeguards Grenadiers, decimated Napoleon's Grand Armée during their retreat from Moscow. The
regiment's relentless pursuit and engagement in various skirmishes significantly contributed to the attrition of the French forces.

The 1813-1814 Campaigns

With the tide turning against Napoleon, the Lifeguards Grenadier Regiment continued to play a crucial role in the subsequent campaigns that led to the
liberation of Europe from French dominance.

Battle of Leipzig (1813)

In the Battle of Leipzig, also known as the Battle of Nations, the regiment was part of the Coalition forces that decisively defeated Napoleon. This battle was
the largest of the Napoleonic Wars, involving over 600,000 troops. The Lifeguards Grenadiers were involved in some of the fiercest fighting, particularly in the
efforts to capture and hold key positions around Leipzig. Their discipline and combat effectiveness were crucial in the Coalition's ability to encircle and
ultimately force Napoleon’s retreat.

Invasion of France and the Entry into Paris (1814)

As the Coalition forces advanced into France in 1814, the Lifeguards Grenadier Regiment continued to distinguish itself. Their participation in the battles of
Brienne, La Rothière, and Arcis-sur-Aube showcased their unwavering commitment and combat prowess. The culmination of these efforts came with the
entry of Coalition forces into Paris on March 31, 1814. The Lifeguards Grenadier Regiment marched into the French capital, symbolizing the fall of Napoleon
and the restoration of peace in Europe. Their presence in Paris was a testament to their crucial role throughout the Napoleonic Wars and their contribution to
the ultimate victory over Napoleon.

The Hundred Days and the Battle of Waterloo (1815)

Although Napoleon was exiled to Elba after his initial defeat, he managed to escape and briefly regain power in 1815, a period known as the Hundred Days.
The Lifeguards Grenadier Regiment was once again called to arms as part of the Seventh Coalition.

Battle of Waterloo (1815)

The regiment did not participate directly in the Battle of Waterloo but was part of the Coalition forces that moved to secure the final defeat of Napoleon. Their
readiness and strategic positioning were vital in ensuring that Napoleon had no opportunity to regain his former strength.

The Lifeguards Grenadiers' Legacy

The Lifeguards Grenadier Regiment's contributions during the Napoleonic Wars were a testament to their bravery, discipline, and strategic importance. From the early battles of Austerlitz and Eylau to the decisive
engagements at Borodino, Leipzig, and the entry into Paris, the regiment played a pivotal role in the Coalition’s efforts to defeat Napoleon. Their legacy is remembered as one of steadfast courage and unwavering
dedication to their duty, contributing significantly to the reshaping of Europe in the post-Napoleonic era.

In the Russo-Turkish War of 1877–1878, the regiment played a pivotal role in the Battle of Gorni Dubnik on October 12, 1877. Their commander, Colonel Y. V. Lyubovitsky, exhibited extraordinary courage and
leadership during this critical engagement. Despite being wounded twice, Lyubovitsky refused to leave the battlefield. He continued to lead his men by taking the drum from a fallen signaler, a symbolic and
practical act that inspired his troops and ensured the continuity of the attack. This action not only exemplified personal bravery but also the indomitable spirit of the regiment.

The regiment was headquartered in the Petrovsky Barracks, an imposing structure built in 1811 by the renowned architect Luigi Rusca, located on Bolshaya Nevka. The barracks were more than just a military
installation; they were a center of regimental life and tradition. Within the southern part of the officers' quarters on the second floor was the regimental church, initially dedicated to Saint Sebastian the Martyr. In
1816, the church was renamed to honor Saint Artemon of Laodicea and Saint Maximus the Confessor. This change reflected the regiment's deep religious ties and the spiritual support that was integral to its

The commemoration day of these saints, April 13 in the old style, became a significant date for the regiment. It was on this day in 1813 that the regiment was elevated to the status of a guards unit, a
recognition of its distinguished service and its esteemed position within the Russian Imperial Army. This transformation into a guards unit was a testament to the regiment's enduring legacy of excellence,
bravery, and unwavering commitment to the defense and expansion of the Russian Empire.

Throughout its history, the Life Guards Grenadier Regiment exemplified the highest standards of military service. Its storied past is a chronicle of bravery, discipline, and pivotal contributions to the Russian
military successes across various significant historical epochs.
