This is one of two artillerymen moulds, the other one is here (PA72). These are needed to complete any cannon teams used to pound your enemies to pieces. Usually you should be able to cast about 5 figures from a single ingot of metal. Our Model Metal is highly recommended due to its low temperature melting and casting points. This extends the life of this mould dramatically. Model metal contains a mix of bismuth, tin and lead. This mould does not include any casting accessories so they must be acquired 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.
