Following on from our policy of selling individual figures to save you unnecessary purchases, Riders and Horses are now sold separately. The new codes will be up soon, just email us for now if placing an order.  NOTE- any Specials figure (Codes with an X ) will come with Horses supplied.


Any order 40+ of a single code will attract a 10% discount.  Email us with your order. Note that for these we will accept payment by Credit card rather than  expensive PayPal

Crann Tara is now part of  Caliver Books/Partizan Press/ Matchlock Miniatures & Minifigs . Graham has done a cracking job in developing a successful range… in fact too successful as it had grown busier than he wanted in his retirement. The moulds are in the hands of some of the most experienced casters in the hobby and will be now be made in house to ensure a continual supply.

The figures on this site will also be listed on  to allow for combinations of orders across the many ranges we produce

Crann Tara Miniatures has a new owner

You will all be aware from previous newsletters that the success of Crann Tara has brought with it it’s own problems for me, mainly the increasing demands on my time and also the ability to keep creating new product.

Dave Ryan the owner of Caliver Books ( came to the rescue  with an offer to buy the business and continue to take it forward, so as from the 1st July Dave/Caliver will take over the running of Crann Tara.

All orders up to the 30th will be processed by me and I ask ( if you can ) that you don’t place any orders today (30th June) as a lot of work has to take place to prepare for the transition.

All my stock and moulds will be delivered to Caliver in the meantime continue to place orders as normal from the 1st July and keep your eyes open as I know there are a lot of new releases coming very soon.

It has been 9 years since Crann Tara was created and it feels a bit like your child leaving home and the journey with many of you has been a good one. Thankyou for all your support and helping me develop this dream.

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to get in touch

Starting from today until 25th June I am offering a 20% discount on orders over £45.00.

The sale doesn’t include unit deals, Hessians or the Fife and Drum AWI range as these are already discounted and it will be restricted to stock items only – no back orders.

Just enter the code Summersale21 at checkout and all should be taken care of – any problems message me.

I’m pleased to say that I’ve reached an agreement with Igor Karpov (Ratnik Miniatures) to cast his excellent 18th Century civilians in metal. Igor is casting and selling the figures in resin but we both agreed a metal alternative would be a good idea.

The first set of 10 figures are on their way to me, so I’m guessing end of July when Griffin have worked their magic and they’re available .The figures can be seen here

They will be sold as complete sets of 10 figures. Once I have the first set they will be available to pre.order whilst Griffin are making the mould.

The bad news is that all the indications are that I may have to put prices up, metal prices are increasing significantly, any increase will be held to an absolute minimum and as always I will seek to offset as best I can through more deals etc. I haven’t worked out the increases as yet but I will post here and through the newsletter once finalised.

Keep safe

I have updated the Flags of War stock levels and revised codes where appropriate and added all the new codes.

There’s a couple of items I’m still out of stock but these will be ordered shortly.

Also I have started to stock the Flags for the French army, the first 20 codes are listed under the French Army. Unfortunately it also means the prices have gone up as Iain has also raised the prices to £3.00 a sheet.

I do have a number of the older generic Jacobite sheets left over so anyone who orders a clan pack will also get a random sheet for free until the old stock has gone.

Keep safe …..

As with the Hessians I have decided to no longer carry stock of the AWI range from Fife and Drum – again slow sales and money in stock brings me to this position. All stock has been updated and sale prices shown.

If you have any questions please ask.


Due to a number of requests from customers I have agreed that I will take orders on request for these figures. Provided minimum numbers are reached I will place a monthly order for them from Griffin, this will start in June.

The lists on the website will disappear and I ask you just e.mail what you want and a paypal invoice will be created.

Thanks for your continued support.
