Description

Garde du Corps wore similar uniforms as other heavy cavalry Cuirassiers in the Prussian army. On November 5, at the battle of Rossbach, the 3 squadrons of the regiment were deployed in the second line of the right wing under major-general von Seydlitz. They broke the Austrian Trautmansdorf Cuirassiers and Bretlach Cuirassiers as well as 2 French regiments and took 2 pairs of kettle drums and 4 standards.

This mould can cast approximately two mounted figures per metal ingot. You can use this mould hundreds of times using our Model Metal, an alloy of tin, lead and bismuth. More metal is available here.

In order to use this mould you must have casting accessories like clamps, release agents and a casting ladle. PA2000 starter kit is a good purchase for beginners.

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.

    Good heavy cavalry mold.

    A good-looking figure that can also be used for Austrian and Russian cuirassiers. After you vent the hooves, nose, tail, and hand (sideways), it should cast well every time. Have lots of metal in the ladle, though; it takes a while to fill up.

    Heavy horse

    A nice figure that is actually Prussian and not Swedish painted as Prussian. Can be used for other nationalities as well. Make sure you vent the arms (sideways). And maybe vent the horse's hooves. Just finished casting my first unit. Ferocious.
