This is a vulcanised black rubber mould of two 40mm scale semi-falt artillerymen that comes in two parts that can be assembled and then you pour the preferred metal into it and allow it to cool.
There are two other moulds in this range to complete the artillery men's team plus separate cannon and carriage moulds.
Artillerymen were skilled engineers that risked their own safety handling these early cannons as they could explode due to flaws in their manufacture. Portfire were the soldiers that ignited the gunpowder to fire the cannon.
The Irish Wild Geese moulds, the French Regiments 1750 and the Karoliner are the same moulds. S901, F901 & I901 are the same mould supplied with a label with a picture appropriate to that regiments colour scheme, the exception is i903 which has an alternative infantry solder instead of the pike man.
Due to older packaging, some paint information is incorrect, we do not stock Molak paint and advise all customers to use the better quality Vallejo acrylics instead.
The common paints to use are: Scarlet (code av817), Flat Green (Code av968), Hull Red (av985), Silver (av997), Light Brown (av929) and Black (av950) and White (av951).
