Napoleon Boneparte's vast French army consisted of tens of thousands of cavalry, from heavy to light, used for scouting, raiding and assault. Infantry in line were extremely vulnerable to cavalry attacks so when threatened by cavalry they would form a large square formation, four ranks deep, to deter charges by mounted troops. In the Battle of Waterloo in 1815, over 9000 cavalry attacked 20 squares of British allied infantry for two hours before retreating.
This mould allows you to cast a French mounted trooper and their horse. The horse will be cast in two halves. It is advantageous to be able to solder these halves together but strong superglue is another alternative. Prince August provides video tutorials on both these techniques.
These moulds do not contain any casting accessories or metal by default so please make sure you have sufficient metal at hand to make these figures (minimum 3 bars). Casting equipment can be purchased here.
If you have difficulty getting this mould to fill you could try venting the mould. Vents are thin channels that are cut into the mould surface, which enables air trapped in the mould to escape. Before cutting the vents warm the mould as this makes the rubber easier to cut. With a sharp craft knife cut 1mm channels from the part that is not filling to the outside of the mould usually to the top of the mould. Sometimes it is easier to drill a 1.5mm hole through the mould body and add a vent to the outside of the mould. You will get a small amount of flash on each vent, but this is easy to remove.
