this will be the last blogpost on Ca-Ira, so thanks for all the nice remarks I have received on this blog in the past. In coming months I will put an add here if I changed information on the Alde Garde blog in regard of the French Revolution.
But, I will continue with giving info on the (Dutch) revolutionairy armies on our blog aldegarde.blogspot.com
In coming weeks you will see ca-ira posts appear on the aldegarde blog and disappear here so I hope I will see you on the other blog

Underneath a photo of a small unit (2 squadrons) of the Dutch hussar unit Huzaren Van der Hoop (1787-1794) which was renamed for the rest of the Revolutionary period as Huzaren van Timmermans.
The next pictures are from the 28mm Löwenstein-Wertheim jager unit which was hired by the Dutch States in 1794 until disbandment in 1795. As the Dutch were short of light troops they hired this unit.
Description shows them in helmet and in an early corsehut but I like the helmet as it shows their Bavarian origin and as their uniform resembles the early Würtemberg unifom very much I use Würtemberg miniatures.
I have these miniatures already shown, but they are now rebased.
I also took some new pictures of my grenadiers
Let me know which you find the better pics

Although not the quickest and certainly not the best painter underneath my first two Dutch (grenadier) battalions in 28mm.
Made by Emperor Toads and I like them very much
Starting with the grenadier battalion of Van Buseck with from left to right (and second picture of course from right to left) the companies of the regiments Van Brakel (nr 10), Van Dopf (nr 3), Quadt (nr 13) and the Nassau-Usingen (wallon regiment)
The second grenadier battalion is the battalion of De Larrey with from left to right (and second picture of course from right to left) the companies of the regiments Erfprins (regiment Oranje-Nassau 3), Oranje-Nassau nr 1, Oranje-Nassau nr 2 en Markgraaf van Baden (afaik the only regiment with grey trousers - according to the Jassenboekje).
