Product Description

This mould can cast 2 different 1st Century Briton Warriors. These figures are 28mm scale. You can cast from this mould hundreds of times.

The Roman conquest of Britain started around 43 CE under emperor Claudius and faced some stiff resistance by many Britonnic tribes until about 83 CE when Southern England had been conquered and the building of Hadrian's Wall was constructed in 122 CE, sealing off what would become Scotland from Northern England.

Britonnic tribes were sometimes allies or enemies of the Roman occupation and terrible battles were fought during that time. These figures can also be used for depicting the Gaulish tribes of early Europe or Celtic Warriors. Slingers were skilled at throwing stones using leather slings with enough force to kill or injure. These would serve as auxilleries to Britonnic warriors or used as a secondary weapon to harass Roman formations before they charged. Unfortunately the Roman Legions used large shields that could withstand being pelted by small stones and therefore were able to weather such attacks with minimal effort when in tight formations.

Standard bearers and Druidic chiefs are available as cast figures.

If you are new to hobby casting please purchase one of our starter kits or casting accessories to compliment this mould. An ingot of metal should be enough for approximately seven figures.

Britain BC Episode 1 ~ Francis Pryor (46:45)
In this visually stunning series, best-selling writer and archaeologist Francis Pryor offers an inspiring new view of Britain before the Roman invasion. He shatters the received wisdom that we were a relatively uncivilised bog people inhabiting a misty island, just waiting to be taught how to live by the invaders. Travelling from North Wales to the Orkneys, the cliffs of Dover to the Western Isles of Scotland, Stonehenge to Maiden Castle, Pryor lifts the lid on what really made the ancient Britons tick and how what we were informs what we are today. Traveling more than a thousand miles north to Orkney and the Western Isles, he explores an amazing array of stone circles, henges and round tombs, revealing that how the ancient Britons worshipped their ancestors and brought death into their homes. Moving down to the big daddy of ancient British sites, Stonehenge, Pryor and other leading archaeologists reinterpret the whole spiritual landscape of pre-Roman Britain - as a passage of a whole community from life to death, expressed in an array of foreboding, impressive wood and stone monuments. By the end of his quest, Pryor convinces Britains to cast aside the national denial of their own ancestors, to embrace them as the remarkable people they were.
