A quiet day casting

I had the day off work on Monday with no family around so I decided to spend a few hours casting up some more Prince August figures. The morning session produced quiet a lot of miscasts figures. Frustrated I decided to have a spot of lunch and get some air.  

After Lunch however I really got into the swing with very few miscasts going back into the pot.

In all I cast up 28 Cavalry types, 18 infantry/gunners and 3 limbers and wheels.  In all I used just under 2 kg of metal. 

The Limbers are going to be converted so they have two single horses rather then a team of 4. I am also going to use the Limber cast to form the basis of the 2 wheel wagon with a single horse/rider. 

I did have problem casting wheels from Prince August moulds however the ones in the picture are from a  Nurnberger Meisterzinn mould and cast up a treat.

nice work, new figs to paint !

I had a similar casting spree over the bank holiday weekend; about 40infantry plus Nurnberger Meisterzinn limbers, draft horses and riders - I had trouble with the wheels, got lazy and opted to use some plastic Lego wheels I have left which are just about the right size.

My sons would be upset if I started stealing the Lego parts...wonder if the wheels are available separately?
