Wargaming with Prince August 40mm semi-flat figures.
Delightful figures. How would you suggest someone new to these figures begin?
By begin, I mean get into the PA lace Wars casting.
Decide what armies you want to build and buy the minimum number of moulds.For example moulds 3101 - 3103 will allow units of (advancing) Prussian musketeers, grenadiers and fusiliers.If you want to add in the guard and march attack pose, add in 3104.For melting lead get the 'solder pot' (and a ladle), I bought one recently and it is much easier than using a kitchen stove.There is loads of helpful advice on casting on the PA website.
Those Curassiers do look good.The PA 'solder pot' looks like a good bit of kit - will have to get one.
AllanI've been using a solder pot a couple of months now and it is very useful. They are thermostat controlled, so you can switch it on and leave it.One thing though - you need quite a lot of metal in there to enable the ladle to be dipped in.
Hello.Please tell me, how you make group bases (battalion and squadron)? Thank you in advance and ask to forgive my bad English.
Thanks for the comment.If you click on the 'Wargaming' label on the right of the blog it will give some information.It really depends what rules you are using. I play games which have 4 bases in each unit. I have 4 infantry or 2 cavalry on each.I paint the units up in pairs, so that they can be combined into an 8 base unit.I hope that helps a little.Steve
Elegant and splendid cuirassiers!
Now we need to see how they perform on the table?
And now they are released:http://princeaugust.blogspot.com/2018/07/seven-years-war-austrian-cuirassier.htmlhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5mO1Flg6MZg
RahwayChris is hoping to get back onto the Dragoons next month, so any feedback on the cuirassiers would be useful.Steve
Bloody lovely looking troops!CheersMatt
