Description

A Grenadier was an elite soldier in the Prussian army, usually at least six foot, tall for that time period, strong and a veteran. This mould allows you to cast a 40mm scale semi-flat soldier about 500 times using our low temperature Model Metal. You will need to have casting equipment to use this mould and it is advisable to also stock up on metal as you can cast about 5 figures per bar. It can take about five minutes per casting. Model metal is an alloy of tin, lead and bismuth.

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.
