You know when you have a bucket list and the chance of ticking one off comes along, well here’s a chance for me to do just that.
My first book relating to wargaming was Brigadier Peter Young’s The Wargame. What an eye opener, the photos of the various battles were inspirational and set me on the path of this fantastic hobby that we are all addicted to. The Spencer Smith figures used in the SYW game were in particular eye catching and I vowed even then to own some someday. Well it’s only taken fifty years!
Having gotten round to it I decided instead to go for Prince August moulds and cast my own rather than Spencer Smith as I, like so many of us have lots of lead figures lying around which will never get painted and can be put to better use.
So for the first time here are a couple of photos of the figures, in this case painted up as the Kaiser Rgt 1757.

|Prince August 40mm castings

Plenty of old lead left, artillery and Prussians maybe.
