Description

Cast metal Seven Years' War semi-flat 40mm scale Hussar Trooper with Mirliton. Hussars were in many nations' armies in Europe.

Difficulty Levels 1 to 5:

    Casting Difficulty - 3
    Assembly Difficulty - 4
    Painting Difficulty - 3

Casting advice:

Use 4 clamps instead of two (or use more elastic bands than normal). Space the clamps on the upper and lower quarters of each side of the mould when securing the mould. Venting should only be needed if you are not using Model Metal.
When venting you may need to drill a 1.5 mm hole through the mould at certain points. On the reverse side of the mould (the plain side) where the hole comes out you can add a channel upwards if you choose to, but as long as you have placed the rough side of the support board against the mould the air should be able to escape safely.

We recommend our scalpels because you need an extremely sharp blade to properly vent a mould.

Contents:

Rubber Mould.

Includes: 2 PTFE rods that you place in the neck slots of the bodies so cavities exist for the heads to attach.

History:

Hussars were a form of light cavalry used in this period by all European armies. Used mainly for skirmishing and scouting the Hussar had a somewhat dashing and romantic reputation. Their dress followed a very similar pattern throughout all the armies involved in the Seven years war; only the headdress varied a little, as some regiments wore a fur cap or busby with a bag hanging at the side and others a conical cap with a stiff cloth wrapped around, called a mirliton. The Mirliton was worn by trumpeters of all regiments, even in those where the troopers all wore the busby.
All hussars wore a tunic or dolman which was decorated by frogging of various kinds. Over the dolman, was a fur jacket or pelisse which was slung and attached in a somewhat jaunty fashion over the left shoulder. Tight hose was worn on the legs over the breeches which were just visible above the hose. Hanging down from his left side the Hussar wore a sabretache usually adorned with a royal cypher. Their main weapons were the curved sabre and the carbine.
