A variant of the Regular appears in the Battle of New Orleans scenario of the Historical Battles, serving as a replacement for the Musketeer. He has more hit points, more attack, trains in less time and has ranged multipliers against heavy cavalry but cost more food and have less ranged attack range than his equivalent. This variant of the Regular is also accessible in the Scenario Editor under the Units category, as "SPC Regular".
- Originally, the Regular costs 60 food, 50 coin and has a ranged attack of 24. With hotfix 24632, it costs 55 food, 50 coin and has a ranged attack of 25.
- The uniform that the Regular wears in his unit portrait is the same one worn by the U.S. Army during the War of 1812, justifying the unit's availability to also the United States in the Battle of New Orleans.
- The Historical Battles Regular reuses the in-game description of the random map Revolutionary.
|“||As the American Revolution erupted, the Continental Congress realized the need for a regular, disciplined, and well trained army rather than a patchwork of local militias. The Continental Army was initially at a steep disadvantage when facing the British, but the leadership of influential figures such as George Washington, the Marquis de La Fayette, and Baron von Steuben helped the fledgling force evolve into a disciplined, effective military machine. From that point on, regular troops became the backbone of the American armed forces, drawing on people from all backgrounds and walks of life and bringing them together in the service of the growing nation.||”|
