First good news – The Hurons and charging French are now in stock so today and tomorrow I will be clearing any outstanding orders for these and get them in the post.

The situation regarding shows is still unclear the team at Falkirk have stated we will get a definitive answer the first week of April. The Salute team have still said the show is on unless Excel say otherwise. My own feeling is it wont happen and if it does it will be a poor show, quite a few of my customers are from Europe and we know they wont be coming. However for both shows the offer still stands that any pre.orders will still be sent post free provided they’re over £60.00.

I am expecting the Mowhawk and Huron figures at the end of March. In order to launch the new range I am offering some pre.order deals on units as per the Musket and Tomahawk rules ( 6 figure units)

For those that wish to go all out there is a War Party offer 51 figures – 400 points as per the first edition ( I may tweak this if the points are substantially different in 2nd but you will not get any less figures.)

These Offers run from now until the end of March

More offers will appear over the next few days .

Some images are below, the Hurons are still work in progress

I have added to the shop Sheithers Freicorps, mounted and foot, together with the French dragoons in tricorn, again mounted and foot. Hopefully on Tuesday I shall add the Government Highland Grenadiers and some more generic officers on foot.

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.
