I received the new greens for the French Indian War from Richard this week and sent them straight off to Griffin. They will be up for pre.order in a couple of weeks as Griffin are so busy current turn around is running at 4-6 weeks.

I am due new stock next week which is a relief and that should include stock of the new Saxons and the Fife and Drum Morgans rifles.

More news will be going out in the Newsletter later today.

Keep safe

For those of you waiting on orders which include the Provincial Infantry and NCO’s Griffin have informed me that they hope to have stock with me by the 10th July.

I apologise for the delay but these have been disruptive times and thank you for your patience.

I also hope to have the pre.release phase 2 Saxons by that date also.

First and foremost can I once again thank you for your continued support during the recent and ongoing situation.

I thought it opportune to bring you up to date with where I am with orders etc.

I have had a recent stock update from Griffin which has allowed me to clear a big backlog of orders, however I am still waiting for Griffin to catch up on the mould making, this includes the production moulds for the Provincial infantry so please bear with me.

For those customers who have bought the skirmishing Rogers Rangers you may have noticed the deliberate mistake! There are actually seven different skirmishing figures not 6 so you have been getting 7 figures for the price of 6 – that error has now been rectified 🙂

Finally from the 1st July I will have to increase postal charges to USA only, I don’t understand all the reasons why but the end result is USPS have significantly increased their charges for ‘the last mile’ so costs from UK to USA are facing 40-50% increases!!!

Keep safe.

Welcome to Crann Tara Miniatures

This is a range of 1/56 scale figures (approximately 30mm in height) the figures were originally sculpted by Richard Ansell, however Andy Stadden has now taken up the mantle.

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

  We aim to make this the most comprehensive range of figures for the ’45 rebellion.  This year should bring the Rebellion range of figures almost to an end.

I have decided to focus on the period in the mid-1740’s and therefore releases for the French, British, Savoia and Spain ( The Savoia, Spanish and some of the French are sculpted by John Dougan) are also appearing and there will be a few surprises along the way.

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.
