I have finished painting the first four castings. The photos show the final result.
Imperial Infantry (Home sculpted and gravity cast)
Imperial Infantry - Rear View
I have a second mold for the same figure currently drying out: if that works then I have all I need to start casting the figures in quantity. I still plan to make a third mold for safety's sake.
Imperial Infantry - Side View
The muskets are made from 1/32" brass rod, which allows them to be far more slender - and stronger - than if they were cast. Surprisingly enough using this diameter brass rod means they are still slightly too thick than if they were properly scaled.
