outside and starting on some summer casting projects. Outdoor casting has the advantage of keeping the nasty metal fumes out of the house.
I purchased three of the new 40mm Prussian molds from Prince August. I found the new moulds to be a nice change from the sometimes awkward poses of PA figures. The apparently have listened to those of us who war-game with these big guys and need a versatile figure that will paint up to most 18th century types.
Here are the wargame friendly features of the new molds:
1. The mould will cast two figures at a time, effectively halving casting time---particularly if you go for big units (mine are established at 40 figures) I got this new unit done in about 5 hours in two sessions over a weekend.
3. The detail is more accurate for the Prussians.
4. The pose matches the older infantry advancing pose, though I hear they will be coming out with a march attack pose later.
5. The heads cast separately but are very easy to attach thanks to a nice sturdy peg cast on the head in conjunction with a plastic rod that is inserted into the mould before casting. This ensures that the hole for the peg in the body of the figure is perfectly sized.
I'll be posting progress on the painting of this unit soon.

They look resplendent in their shiny newness. Eager to see them in their new, um, uniforms.
I look forward to watching the unit come together...
I've been having lots of problems with my blog accounts and to save my sanity have decided to restart my blog if you would like to 'refollow' me please use this link
Great Blog! I like it a lot!
It is obvious that you've got experience with moulds. I've recently started myself, but I have several problems making them. Can youmaybe go to my own blog and look at my latest post where I show a picture of my failure.
I did some casting a few weeks ago. I bought the new molds when they had their big sale, but haven't had a chance to use them.
What metal do you use? I have been having mixed results with the metal I have on hand.
Nice big toys!
I dropped by specifically to let you know I nominated you for a Liebster Award, as part of my Liebster, here: http://cluckamok.blogspot.com/2014/06/not-leapster-liebster.html
This post also has the rules of acceptance. Carry on : )
A little late with this comment - better late than never?
After a lot of emails I finally made contact with PA's sculptor, and now am credited as part of the design team. In practice what I do is advise on what figures to make and in what poses.
The poses are designed with gamers in mind, and are designed to rank up on 20x30mm bases (what I use).
The march attach pose was released last week, and it has a couple of fusilier heads in it (there was supposed to be one in with the two advancing figures)
Now an unashamed plug for my blog:
The blog is dedicated to trying to produce a range of figures for Lace Wars gamers, so let me have comments and I WILL try and take them on board.
I cast the heads and weapons in PA's posh model metal, and the bodies in scrap.
Just re-found your Blog after a long while and after reading a few posts I've made sure to bookmark it so I don't lose you again.
The 40mm figures are great and I love the paint job you have done on them.
How are you getting n with the new PA figures?
The range has now expanded a fair bit, and includes Austrians and Hungarians, with Russians to follow soon.
I'm trying to raise the profile of the range though my blog, as this brings in feedback, and helps PA sell a few figures (and so the range will grow).
If you don't mind I would appreciate you adding a link to my site to try and bring in more punters?
thank you for sharing
