Here's a pic of the first five Prince August figures I've cast for my "Not Quite the Seven Years War" project. I bought a handful of molds from a dealer and found two used ones online to get me starter, along with a simple casting kit, some lead-free metal, and a portable electric hotplate. I had a few failed casts in there, mostly as I learned the right way to prepare and clamp the molds, but I'm hoping I have a solid technique down.
Anyways, I'm having a ton of fun with this project. Now I need to figure out a uniform color scheme and start painting.
