The Hessen regiments fought against the Prussians at the Battle of Rossbach. This officer carries a long sword rather than a musket, which is typical of that time and he would help keep order in his ranks and instruct his troops when new orders arrived from his superiors.

This infantry mould can be reused many hundreds of times, and you can make about five semi-flat 40mm scale metal figures from one ingot of metal. Model metal is an easy metal to use when casting which is why Prince August recommends it highly. All metal can be reused at any time so waste is minimal. Bulk purchases of metal result in lower prices. We supply a large array of casting accessories to help you get started.

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.
