progress with 40mm home-cast figures ...(2)

I've been working on the 18c 40mm infantry masters and have finished the initial work.


There is still some work to do to tidy them up before they go into a mould. I may just have the fusilier and grenadier heads on their own so I can swap them with the musketer's.

I'm currently planning what goes into moulds based on the number of figures I anticipate I'll need; a figure which I only cast a few will have to share a mould with one which I'll cast 25+;  this will reduce the number moulds which are not used very much.

The figure master I'm working on at the moment - a dragoon
