Product Specifications

The Normandy Windmill stands out with its detailed craftsmanship and high-quality resin construction, designed to withstand the rigors of gameplay while providing a focal point of visual interest. The model features historically accurate architecture, including a sturdy base and intricately designed rotating blades, which can be positioned as desired. Suitable for various scales, this windmill is particularly popular in the 28mm version, aligning perfectly with standard wargaming miniatures.

Historical Context

Windmills like those in Normandy were not only agricultural staples but also played significant roles during wartime, serving as lookout points or makeshift headquarters. This model reflects the dual utility of windmills, making it a versatile addition to historical battlefields from the medieval period through World War II and beyond.

Versatility in Gaming

The Normandy Windmill enhances tabletop wargames by providing cover, high ground, and strategic complexity. Its towering presence can change the dynamics of battle scenarios, offering players numerous tactical options. It can also serve as an objective in missions, where control over the windmill means dominance over surrounding areas.

Enhancing Dioramas

For diorama builders, the Normandy Windmill offers extensive potential for customization. While the model itself is superbly printed, adding details like laser-etched tiling can elevate its appearance, as one of our customers successfully did. Painting this model is a joy, allowing hobbyists to experiment with weathering techniques that highlight the windmill's textures and enhance its historical authenticity.
