Description

Early Cannons were extremely dangerous weapons that can cause horrific casualities to the enemy side however they were not very accurate or very mobile so they were often used from fixed positions during a battle and fired primarily to cause panic and disarray rather than serious destruction of the opposing army.

The French Regiments, the Karoliners and the Irish Wild Geese are the same vulcanised black rubber moulds. F951, S951 & I951 are the same mould supplied with a label with a picture appropriate to that regiments colour scheme. This cannon could be used as a 6 pounder for 25mm scale soldiers.

You can cast up to 500 castings per hole using Prince August Model Metal. Keep the moulds out of direct sunlight when storing them. Never use water to cool metal in a mould.

    Which weight is this cannon?

    This same mold is listed elsewhere as a 3 pounder cannon. Which is it? I will treat it as a 3 pdr, use the ":12 pdr" as a 6 pounder, and use the big cannon from Meisterzinn as a 12 pounder. The 3 pdr was normally the battalion gun, which only shows up in skirmish and low tactical level games. Or in the American Revolution, where the artillery was quite light.

    Advanced mould

    I purchased this along with the gun crew moulds. Casting the carriage and barrel was no problem, but it took me about 6 tries to get the spokes of the wheels to fill in completely. The mould comes with four tiny holes poked through the side of the mould into the spokes; I ended up cutting a number of ventilation channels and another side-hole. With the mould well warmed, some significant tapping of the mould in a number of orientations after pouring finally resulted in good results and filled in wheel spokes. The completed cannon is heavy and charming.
