I have taken the decision not to restock the Hessian range. It is a slow seller takes up much needed space and resources. The figures have been reduced in price and once they’re gone they will only be available from Fife and Drum Miniatures in America.

First can I thank everyone who has bought the General Montcalm set, so far it has raised £415 and that has been sent to Richards widow.

As of today I have four outstanding orders and they are waiting for new stock of Montcalm. Hopefully they should be with me in the next 10-14 days.

I will be publishing a newsletter shortly announcing some changes , new figures and future plans.

In the meantime Happy Easter

I received the metal masters of the last set of sculpts Richard did for me. One set is General Montcalm both mounted and dismounted – I have decided that all the sales from this set will be given to his widow Coral.

It may not be a lot but I feel it is the least I can do and as this was the last personality he sculpted then it would be good if the figures were a recognition of his work.

Thank you for your support

Welcome to Crann Tara Miniatures

This is a range of 1/56 scale figures (approximately 30mm in height) the majority of the figure are sculpted by Richard Ansell, however Andy Stadden has sculpted the Saxons and pieces across the other ranges.

John Dougan also sculpts part time and his main interest is the War in Savoy and we will see more from him over time.

 I have decided to focus on the period in the mid-1740’s the armies of Britain and France continue to expand as figures for the War in Canada and the Caribbean are being added. Savoy and Spain have also seen additions and the army of Saxony is almost complete. There are still some surprises planned over the next 12 months.

Cast in white metal by Griffin moulds these figures are some of the finest sculpted and cast. They are fully compatible with Fife and Drum miniatures and Minden Miniatures both of which are available from Jim Purkey in America.
