Officially the last orders for Salute should have been in by yesterday. I’m happy o take orders until Friday but you will have to e.mail them as the voucher will no longer work and I will do the necessary here.

For the moment the Prussian musketeer is only available to pre.order. I’ve decided the stock I have doesn’t meet my expectations, some of the detail is quite shallow and needs to be sharper, I think this is due to the process of resin print, mould, and then new moulds for metal so Dan is going to redo the equipment on the figure and all should be good and a Fusilier will be coming.

Finally from the 26th March until Salute I shall be in America so will not have access to the shop e.mails. If you need me for anything get me on cranntara_miniatures@yahoo.co.uk

In conjunction with the forthcoming publication Seven Years War Skirmish Actions by Charles Grant I am pleased to announce more of the figures to support this book are now available.

Designed to be suitable as Prussians or Hessians for the period and designed by Dan from Digital Sculpts -http://digitalsculpt.se/ these are the first of the figures designed through 3D sculpting and printed in resin before being cast in metal.

More to come

Although I still have to take photos ( hopefully tomorrow) I have added the first releases for the skirmish actions of the Seven Years War.

First releases are the Von Luckner Hussars and the mounted Freytag Jaegers. I have condensed made the WAS category now WAS and SYW and that’s where you will find the releases.

Once I have a list of actions and oob the intention will be to offer the ‘Action packs’ at a discounted price.

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.
