I have a batch of Jacobites and British from Crann Tara Miniatures and very nice they are too. I would like to add some variety from other manufacturers – are there any other ranges out there that are compatible?

RSM Miniatures are compatible and offer a small Jacobite range. Minden/Fife and Drum are compatible as well, although they cover the SYW/AWI periods, respectively.

Crann Tara and Minden/Fife and Drum are both sculpted by Richard Ansell.

The Crann Tara figures are pretty much the nicest around – for both Jacobiotes and Government troops. You may feel differently but my feeling is that no one else's figures quite mix with Mr. Ansell's style so I stick to the one range.

How about the new range from Flags of War?

I bought the command pack to see how they compare.

Please let us know what you decide.

Will do!

The pack of figures arrived today and they are WAY bigger than Crann Tara. Probably about a head taller and much chunkier as well, so no, they aren't a good match at all.
