Product Description

French Hussars are cavalry that often were used to chase down fleeing enemies or flank (attack from the side or behind) infantry formations of enemies. The use of a sword was often more lethal than a pistol when on horseback as it never needed reloading and was capable of defending the rider from other sword strikes or slashing down on vulnerable infantry.

This Prince August mould can cast approximately two mounted semi-flat soldiers per ingot, hundreds of times. To maximise the casting experience it is advisable to buy metal in bulk as the prices are discounted the more you buy. As this is just a black rubber mould, you will need basic casting equipment to make use of it.

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.
