My heart jumped when I did my morning scroll down my FaceBook page to see what has happened overnight, and spotted this announcement:
May ’40 Miniatures has been a long time dream come realized. Being a gamer for more than 20 years (fantasy/scifi) I wanted to do something else. Several years ago I made the switch to historical wargaming, specifically WW2 (Bolt Action [other rulesets are out there]). Starting out with late war Germans. But I wanted something else, something that wasn’t readily available. So after lots of planning and thinking and replanning, putting things on hold because real life had other thoughts, finally now is the day to announce the intent to release a range of high quality 28 mm WW2 Dutch miniatures.
A little bit of further reading, and I find that, yes, this new company ticks all my boxes:
- Dutch troops from WW2
- 28mm metal
- Aimed at Bolt Action
The figures are sculpted by Michael Percy.
As I’ve posted previously, my Dad was in the Dutch Army in 1940, so this is a force I’ve always wanted to add to my collection. Now it looks like I’ll be able to do so at last.
For inspiration, there are some great shots of Dutch uniforms in this English-language video that reenacts the Battle of Dordrecht:
