Product Description

These dangerous Hussars were dressed in black with a skull and cross bones symbol embroidered on the front of their mirliton. They were known for their savagery in battle.

Hussars were light cavalry that used slashing swords primarily in battle. Excellent raiders and scouts, they were feared by their enemies and very capable soldiers.

Holger Eriksson was a famous miniature sculptor in the 60's and 70's and he hand carved his master figures often from wood by hand.

This was the last figure Holger Eriksson designed for Prince August. It lacks in detail as Holgers eyesight was fading of old age.

There is an alternative more detailed version made by our current sculptor, Chris Tubb, here.

On average, this cavalry mould will cast 2 figures per ingot of metal, but the mould has a lifetime of hundreds of castings. Our Model metal is simply the best choice for beginners due to its ease of use and the high detail it gives to any castings. There are alternative metals available and bulk purchases result in cheaper prices.

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.
