This is a vulcanised black rubber mould of two 40mm scale semi-flat 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.
Cannons require teams of soldiers to function properly on the battlefield, as they needed repositioning, cleaning, reloading and aiming after each shot. A ramrod was used to stuff padding down the muzzle to keep the cannonball in place before firing.
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).
