Other days, not so much.
I had time and opportunity to do some casting today. Having had a look at my first attempts, I did a little venting and some test pours, then a little more, then I played a bit with the clamping.......
|SYW Prussian body with new Jaeger head. Now to turn this into a 1793 Austrian or maybe I'll start with an Hungarian unit if I can find the bleeping Hungarian mould. (Hmm looking at this, I think I need to flatten the crown of the cap.)|
Finally I tried a few trusty moulds to see if they were still working well. Hmm.... not so much. Whether it was me, atmospheric conditions or something else, some days its just not worth the hassle or risk spoiling a new mould.
Anyway I have a few more fully cast bodies and some pieces including an arm waving a hat for General Montcalm, just no complete casts from any one mould let alone enough skirmishers to make a unit of Grenz or Friekorps for my Allied army.
Another day then.
