TWo additions to our Dutch FR army; a Dutch artillery battery (guns and artillerymen by Emperor Toads and the limber by Eureka) plus the two chasseur companies of the Damas legion (made from Victrix Austrian Landwehr and although not the correct uniform we have to do it with that until correct figures appear lol).

I'm wondering what 15mm figures to use for the Dutch.  Polly Oliver AWI French look as though they might work for the line infantry.  Any advice gratefully received.

Boki has 15mm Dutch 1793-1795 infantry including command. They are very nice. Sadly no cavalry or artillery. I would ask him for his plans.
I don't know other firms who make them. Cavalry and artillery could maybe portrayed by early napoleonic saxons. Hussars wore the early hussar dress so French, or SYW figures can be used. But Dutch use for artillery French material (Gribeauval) as limbers, ammunition wagons and the artillery itself except the gun barrels which are cast in the Dutch Republic itself (3-6-12 pdrs)

Thanks very much, that's very helpful.  I feel that I should have at least one Dutch Brigade on the table top.  Your blog posts on the Dutch Army are much appreciated too.
