Product Description

Infantry need Officers to relay orders and keep discipline. These were sometimes appointed by merit but often such appointments were purchased by the wealthier families for their sons. Officers often carried swords rather than muskets as their task was to keep the infantry in line and to watch for desertion during battle. Drummers were a specialised unit that used the drum beat to assist in the regulation of marching, to raise morale and to alert men in battle of changing orders.

This mould allows you to cast two different figures. There are two holes in the mould so you can cast them separately. On average you should be able to cast five figures per ingot of metal. Our Model metal is highly recommended, especially for beginners. You can save money by taking advantage of discounts that apply to bulk purchases of metal. These increase as you select larger quantities.

Casting accessories like ladles and clamps are available here.

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.
