Some Pieces I've Been working on

Whilst it has been all hands to the pumps getting ready for the forthcoming shows and sorting through the Fife and Drum stock I have still managed to find time to paint and try some sculpting!!!!

These first two show a couple of vignettes I'm working on, the larger of the two shows a couple of Minden Hussars painted as Hessians during the '45 rebellion (courtesy Osprey) with a Crann Tara foot Officer and a Foundry? female and a warbases dog.

The smaller vignette is a RSM foot Officer, the mounted figure I sculpted using one of Richard's dollies, as with all my current early sculpts the shoulders are too wide but I like the figure.

 A command base for my Albion troops showing off some flags Iain at Flags of War kindly did for me. The figures are all from my Crann Tara range.
 Another vignette, a Minden Officer with hands behind back, a Crann Tara drummer and foot officer.
Again the two mounted figures are my sculpts - on Minden Horses again wide shoulder syndrome!
In the background you can just see a couple of Russian foot I had a go at making!!!
Still its progress and I have started painting some more Albion infantry.

Pictures of new figures

On my Crann Tara blog I have informed people of some major changes taking place with my business, all for the good I hope.
In the meantime here are some pics of the new releases coming shortly, some conversions I need opinion on and a taster of some new figures going to appear in the future.

British Line regulation dress at ready

 Irish/French Command marching
 Irish/French Command standing
 Irish/French Infantry standing easy and marching
 British Grenadier at ready
British infantry campaign dress (2) (tricorn turned down)

British Infantry conversions - are these good enough to sell?
Future range - different sculptor same dollies. An ad hoc release of various types of troops from the 1740's the Fusiliers de Morliere will be first once the command is done.
