Coldstream Guards Unit Card
Coldstream Guards are elite infantry in Napoleon: Total War available to Great Britain. They may only be obtained through the Coalition Battle Pack DLC.

DescriptionEdit

Disciplined, well-trained and respected, these elite foot guards inspire nearby troops in battle.

The Coldstream Guards are expensive to maintain, but for good reason: they are superb troops who can reload quickly, charge home with the bayonet and then give a good account of themselves in melee. Their overall competence and excellent morale inspire nearby troops to fight all the harder. However, in common with ordinary line regiments, the Coldsteamers are vulnerable to artillery bombardment and skirmishers’ sniping.

At the Battle of Waterloo in 1815, the Coldstream Guards defended Hougoumont. The farm was important for Wellington’s Anglo-Dutch army as it protected his right flank. Despite assault after assault, the Guards and their comrades managed to hold the place against the French.

The Coldstream Guards are still in service today and continue to celebrate their victory with the ceremony of ”Hanging the Brick”. A large stone from Hougoumont is marched through their barracks by the officers while the junior ranks attempt to steal it. Naturally, these utterly solemn proceedings involve wearing fancy dress and quite a lot of drinking!

General InformationEdit

Coldstream Guards are formidable guard units, possessing slightly better charge, defense, and reloading skills than Foot Guards. This puts them in between Old Guard and Foot Guards, marking them as the second best guard infantry in the game. They are, however, limited to only one regiment.

TriviaEdit

  • Coldstream Guards are the only unit in Napoleon: Total War whose portrait does not depict feet.
