Stock of the British Naval crew/Landing party have now been received and are in the shop.

I have divided the packs into figures in bare feet (suitable to man your ship models and or hit the beach) and those in shoes for fighting ashore. There are currently 16 figures available and a unit pack is available containing one each of the figures plus sprues for a slightly discounted price.

A few more conversions/variants will be on their way shortly.

I’m pleased to say that I am now stocking Stuart Insch’s excellent publication.

Wargaming the Sugar Islands Campaign is an 80 page A5 glossy bound guide to the British Invasion of Martinique and Guadeloupe. It contains a detailed summary of the events on both islands, the leaders, the forces involved and the islands themselves. There is information on suitable figures, scenery and rule sets to use and loads of period maps detailing the landing areas and land fought over. I have commissioned two pen and ink drawing from Chris Gregg which sit in the centre of the book. Lastly the book also contains 6 scenarios each with a detailed colour layout and with special rules including a simple campaign and special events. 

There are limited stocks so don’t miss out.

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.
