New web site, new figures available to order

 

First up you will notice above a link to my new web site, its still the same address. - still lots of work to do including taking new photos for the whole range but you will see the progress over the coming weeks.

Whilst waiting for the new sculpts from Richard Ansell I've still managed to send of some new figures for production

These are the long awaited:
  • British Fusilier 'at ready' in regulation dress.
  •  
  • British Infantry gunners - suitable for serving battalion guns or assisting trained artillery crew.
  • Marching Savoia Grenadier sculpted by John Dougan
  • Generic 18th century musketeer marching. another sculpt by John Dougan for what I believe is a very useful figure for those people who aren't too worried about the number of buttons on a uniform! I will be using mine to start my Dutch army.
All are at Griffin for production moulds and casting and are available as back orders on the our website

Keep the suggestions for figures etc coming in
Thanks
Graham

New Figures available to pre.order soon

I have sent some figures off to Griffin to get into production.
Some of these are conversions and some new figures.
First up is the British Fusilier 'at ready' - a conversion but one I know customers have been asking for.
Nest British Infantry gunners - again a conversion but these should work as battalion gun crew or assistants for the real 'guys'
Then long awaited two figures sculpted by John Dougan - the first is the Savoia Grenadier marching and the second is a 'generic musketeer marching ( I'm going to use them for Dutch)

All of these will be available to pre.order from next week when the new web site hopefully goes live (same address) if anything goes wrong they will be on the old site too.

The French Army march to 2017

Just a quick post to wish you all a Happy New Year.
Got time to deploy my French army today, mostly Crann Tara but theres a few Minden's and an RSM

Enjoy.














Wednesday, 21 December 2016

As the year draws to a close I thought it was time to give a final update. First can I thank you all for what has been the best year for Crann Tara we are still a small acorn in the wargames market but we've grown.

The New Year will see the launch of a new web site and with look it should be a seamless transition! Alos shortly after christmas I will be taking pre.orders for a number of figures - The British Infantry gunners, British Fusilier at Ready and in stock the Scots Grey ensign. 

I will hold back on what I hope to have available for Salute but there will be new figures both as pre.release offers and new releases in their own right. Keep up to date on the Crann Tara blog or Fcebook page.
So can I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year.

I received back from Griffin some metal masters of conversions I had been doing 

These are only 3 of the figures - The British Fusilier and the Infantry gunners will be available to pre.order in the New Year as will the generic infantry marching and the Savoia grenadier - marching.
The highland cavalry trooper I want to work on and create 3 or 4 variants before release.

I'm certainly hoping they're all in stock for Salute. The Scots Grey ensign is finished and will also be in the shop in the New year.

Whilst Richard is busy sculpting the next releases I've also been playing and have almost finished 8 figures for the Compagnie Franche de la Marine.
These are for use in the Sugar Islands campaign but I guess they could be used for other things. Depending how they cast they may also be available for Salute!

Have a great Christmas and thanks for your support and encouragement.

Battleground Show

This weekend sees my last show of the year at Stockton
http://www.battlegroundshow.co.uk/venue
organised by Pendraken Miniatures I think its a fine show to see the year out 30+ traders and a some good looking games.

If we could stop the wargames show early afternoon drift it would be excellent.
If you're going pop by for a chat, if you're not then you should be :)
