40mm French S.Y.W.

Started casting up some French figures to combat my British .

They are painted as the Regiment 'Du Roi'.

Have started getting good results from the Prince August semi-flat molds having cut my own air vents into some of them to help the mold to fill properly . Also using the same few molds you get to know there individual characteristics- some need less pressure when claping together (to let the air escape) , some need to be poured a lot slower to get the molten metal to fill properly and some need tapping quite vigourlesly whilst pouring . Some molds are definatly easier to get consistant figures than others - luckly these seem to be the most used ones (ordinary infantrymen)
