Decided to have a bit of fun converting some odd Chinese plastic toy soldiers, adding a spare W.Britains artillery piece, and a Lone Star WW1 machine gunner to form a small force of Dutch military c.1939.
When the Germans invaded Holland in 1940 the Dutch didn't really have much hope of winning, their 280,000 combatants were to take on 750,000 Germans. It should also be noted, their army had much of the characteristics of something out of WW1 due to a lack of investment and a belief they could remain neutral. However, despite poor deployments, their anti-aircraft units were quite effective and their marine forces put up a stiff resistance in Rotterdam before their national capitulation.
I've been able to raise an infantry battalion of twelve figures, and converted others with metal home-cast heads into some support units. I still have a mortar crew to complete, and some officers. Might like to raise a unit of Black Devils or Dutch Marines too, in blue uniforms.
The basic uniform colour for the Dutch is a nondescript grey-green, lighter than German field-grey, and prone to look distinct according to the light. This is only a fun project, and in any games the Dutch will be defending and outnumbered three to one.
