Product Description

These were part of the Allied army of France and Austria against the Prussians. Sometimes simply firing by rank is not going to be enough to win the day, especially if the terrain is unsuitable for such tactics. The alternative is a risky charge into the enemy with bayonets fixed to your muskets, and use them much like pikes. This can be effective if the enemy is wavering or if your troops need to charge artillery to survive their canister shot.

This mould allows you to cast a single type of running musketeer. You can make up to five of these per ingot of metal. This is a semi-flat figure and no assembly is required after casting. Bulk purchases of metal is an economic choice we highly recommend when planning on casting a lot of soldiers as the ingots get cheaper the more you buy. Casting accessories are available here.

The battle of Rossbach was fought on November 5th 1757 between the Prussian army of Frederick the Great and the combined armies of France and the German Empire under Soubize.

When the allied commanders noticed the Prussians moving back from their previous positions to behind a hill they mistakenly believed thy were retreating even before the battle begun and recklessly advanced to overtake and destroy them. The Prussians realising the allies error, prepared their cavalry and artillery just out of sight of the allies over the hill crest. As the Franco-German army surged up the hill, they were suddenly met by the Prussian cavalry at full gallop and the roar of artillery fire, which threw them into disarray. Despite valiant attempts by the French cavalry to halt the now advancing Prussian infantry and rank their own troops, the battle was lost and Prussia won the day.
