May ’40 Miniatures’ Kickstarter for 1939/1940 German Fallschirmjäger is now open.

These 28mm early war Fallschirmjäger (paratroops) will be made as historically accurate as possible in this scale.

They are designed for the 1940 German invasion of the Netherlands (but could also be used for games set in Norway, Belgium and even Crete).

As a side-note, my father was in the Dutch army at the time of the invasion of Holland (you can read his story here). Amongst a box of his photos is this one, presumably taken shortly after the invasion.
