Here Come the Confederates



so remember last time when I estimated that my remaining 14 pounds of pewter would net me 140 soldiers?

Well, after four casting marathons I used up that 14 pounds of pewter and got...

140 soldiers.

Once I collect all of the flash and filings I might be able to eke out one more.

I'll keep you posted.

Soldier on!



This was a pair of (very thin) pewter candlesticks.  This is where cheap casting pewter can come from.
