Welcome to Crann Tara Miniatures, this is a range of 1/56 scale figures (approximately 30mm in height) sculpted by Richard Ansell. 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 sculpte 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 compatable with Fife and Drum miniatures and Minden Miniatures both of which are available from Jim Purky in America.

It's been sometime since I posted on here and I apologise. First and foremost I have two shows booked in November the first is Targe at Kirriemuir on the 12th November and the second is Battleground at Stockton on the 26th November.
There are discount coupons for both of these shows if people wish to pre.order goods over £25. I always encourage you to do so as it ensures you don't run the risk of me running out of stock!
For Targe just enter Targe16 when asked this runs from today until the 1st November
For Battleground enter Battlegrnd and this runs from the 1st November until the 21st.
In addition people have asked if I will be extending the unit pack deals etc. - I will look at this but with so many rule sets out there its difficult to get the right size. For those folks who play Honour of War and want units for this set of rules - just e.mail your wants and I will invoice you with a total and a suitable discount. The only criteria is that each unit must have a command pack in its make up.
The Jacobite personalities, British artillery crew etc will al be in stock for next week. They have been added to the store and are available to order.
The Ligonier character was a commission and will be only a limited available model there have already been a number of reservations for this so once I've cleared them the balance will be placed in the shop.
Finally I will be at the 'other Partizan' show on the 21st August with a game and a trade stand. If you want to pre.order anything for the show use the voucher code Partizan17 for a 10% discount. It's also a safe way of ensuring you get what you want.
Photots of the new models will be on the shop over the next few days
NEW IN STOCK.
Now listed are the Austrian Artillery and equipment, Prussian and Austrian train riders, the mighty Prussian Brummer.
There is also the Savoia artillery crew and the start of the Savoia cavalry with a trooper.
In addition there are the French Garde cavalry which are also capable of being used as Gendarmes and a British Dragoon horse holder and horses - the Garde Cavalry, and Horse holder are all conversions I have carried out so I hope you like them.
Photos coming shortly
I thought it was also time to post a couple more customers photos first up is the 21st Foot painted by Steve Allen - these have the fusilier heads which I have had cast up. If anyone would like some to convert their figures then e.mail me.
then we have Swiss foot for the army of Savoia painted by Dave Jarvis from the collection of John Dougan
First and foremost a belated Happy New Year.
I have just added to the shop today the new Government Flags from Flags of War- Iain has done a cracking job and Im pleased with these. Hopefully more in time for Salute.
I shall get the individual photos uploaded soon.
On facebook and the blog there's some photos of the new French and Highland Officer, some are conversions and some are Richard's sculpts The French are going to Griffin this week for production moulds - the Highland Officer I will list as I have a small stock, depending on feedback etc he may make it to production.
Next month I shall be getting the French Garde Cavalry and the British Scots Greys/Horse Grenadier into production. Mid February expect to see an announcement re Salute and the deals on orders placed for collection.
In the mean time here's a couple of pics 36th Foot painted by Mark Allen and the firing line.

FREE POSTAGE ON ALL ORDERS OVER £100.00
I'm aware that postage costs quite often restrict what people can order, therefore with immediate effect all orders over £100 will attract free postage.- That's free postage to any where in the world. Everything should be set up to allow this any problems let me know.
Below is a picture of the Marshall Saxe in his coach - a brilliant piece

The phrase Crann Tara is Gaelic for 'Firey Cross', the symbol used to call Clan members to war.
