Did anyone else get the email of Crann Tara being sold to the owner of Cavalier Books? Thoughts?

Straight from the horse's mouth….

I don't see any problem!

Interesting. Seems a quick change as mid month it seemed like BAU.
I'd bookmarked him before as having some interesting sideline models, but now in the İMinifig/Caliver camp I can order at ease.
Glad he's chosen lifestyle over business drama…
cheers dave (another)

I have gotten good service from Cavalier Books over the years.

Cavalier are a great company to deal with.

I think you all mean Caliver Books not Cavalier.

Cavalier Books would have been a better name, and they seemed to be called that more than their real name.

Crann Tara are some of the finest 28mm figures I own. Hope the new owner is able to keep the standards as high.

I sure hope the new guys have better quality control than the last guys.

I bought a bunch of them 2 plus years ago and all the bayonets fell off the muskets Most were missing upon arrival the rest when simply touched. The last guys response to my complaints; "Gosh, that is too bad."

Doesn't sound like the Crann Tara I know.

Never had a problem with Crann Tara. As their figures are more realistic their bayonets are a little thinner. Excellent figures IMO.

The Crann Tara miniatures I bought are first class – bayonets are excellent, quality control top notch.

I'm a long time customer of Crann Tara, having bought hundreds of figures over the years. I've had some bayonet breakage, but they were always replaced.
