The Border Reivers Return.

Whilst this is primarily associated with CrannTara I wanted to inform people that together with Alan from Hoka Hey wargames we have purchased The Border Reiver range sculpted by the late Jim Bowen and once sold by Monolith under their Graven Images label.

Over the coming weeks I will be listing the figures on the Crann Tara shop, what is a surprisr is that there are many figures that have never been released (almost 100) and Jim was obviously extending this into the Elizabethan Wars in Ireland of which there are also a  lot of figures.

We are in talks with a sculptor who we feel complements Jims style with a view to extending the Reiver range and completing the Irish.

Ive also started work on some skirmish rules.

In the mean time here's some pics-

 All the figures were painted by Jim Bowen, what a talent to have lost so young.
But these figures will be available at Smoggycon in November.
