GIFT IDEA: Great fun gift. Can be reused hundreds of times. Make a set for friends or gifts for that special occassion and make one for yourself. To cast 32 pieces (a complete chess set) you need 20 ingots (bars) of metal approximately. We have special discounts available. Read about them in green section below.

OTHER chess moulds: We have a large range of themed molds for making chess sets.

  • Staunton (Classic set - one set can cast both sides)

What we mean by 54mm Scale: It means that an average human figure measures 54mm standing up straight. Hats, weapons, flags or unusual poses will mean the individual figures may measure more or less than 54mm in height.

    CASTING GUIDE: (requires casting equipment & metal not included but available in my ebay shop)
  1. Apply release powder to both mould halves evenly.
  2. Gently clap the moulds together to remove excess powder.
  3. Add the two support boards to the sides of the moulds and hold firmly together with the metal clamps.
  4. Melt metal in the casting ladle. Use a worn match to check that the metal is at the correct temperature. If the match smokes lightly when placed in the metal it means that it is ready to pour.
  5. Pour carefully into the mould holes and tap lightly to settle metal.
  6. When cool (5 minutes), open the mould and bend the mould away from the figure to remove it.
  7. Clip away any excess metal off the figure and base, file to keep base flat. Polish with a wire brush.
  8. Your figure is ready to paint. We advise undercoating it first and varnishing it when finished painting to protect it.
