Spanish Armada 1588 Chess moulds | November 2017 Release.

Spanish Armada 1588 Chess moulds

Prince August has released in November 2017 chess moulds that allow you to cast the English and Spanish sides for the Spanish Armada 1588. 
The Spanish Armada was sent up the English channel by their King, Philip II, to bring his army from Flanders over to England to depose the current Queen, Elizabeth I.
The English had different ideas and knew that they had to prevent the landing of a Spanish army on English soil. While at sea they had the advantage and harrassed the Spanish Fleet all the way up the Channel and with the help of their Dutch allies drove the Spanish into retreat, via sailing around England via Scotland and returning to Spain eventually. The storms were so fierce that many of the armada's ships were wreaked off the coast of Scotland and Ireland, resulting ultimately in the loss of about 45 ships out of the initial 130 that had left Spain.

Buy both sides of the Spanish Armada chess moulds here.

These moulds will allow you to cast 54mm scale metal chess pieces. Casting metal and equipment is sold separately. 
It is also an ideal opportunity to try out our new Solder Melting Pot, and also cast with Pewter metal rather than our Model Metal. Normally casting in Pewter is harder due to the technical issues in getting that metal hot enough on a normal stove or hotplate. Our Solder pot can heat the metal easily however so with a slight turn of the knob you can scoop out 5 Star pewter just as easily as Model Metal. Currently we even offer half price 10 ingot deal. Grab 8 more bars and you have enough for a chess set.
