Mignot-Figures will be a special object. For myself are the napoleonic set`s not interestly. So I get any figures from ebay. But they are any Romans (I think this set is not so historical.). Sobiesky is entering the horse is a nice group. I hope for the set "Louis XIV. and his court" in Kulmbach!

One week passed now, has anyone access to the results of the contest?
Are any pictures available of the exposed figures and here flats?  (I found six on a remote club link, partial)....
Has any IFFS attended the show and brought back some feedback and photographs?

I know that Scholtz is expensive but the figures I mentioned are expensive even for Scholtz.

I won´t get to deep in the price discussion in this topic but I think as some figures become rare it become real collector object and the price rises.I know about the prices for drawings and engraving. Sure I´m happy to get some nice flats for cheap money but I also accept when an editor requiers a higher price.

The number of collectors for 30mm flats is shurly declining. Most collectors I know are 60 years upward. Naturally they will get less in the coming years. And there are not many young people interested in flats.

Bob---Thanks for the contact information.


Christoph---Scholtz can be expensive, but if you live outside the EU, you don't have to pay the dreaded VAT. In my opinion, flat figures are very inexpensive. Most collectors, however, are a bunch of penny-pinching pensioners who have in their wallet the first coin they ever earned.  :)  I notice that Scholtz has been reducing their price for painted figures. Perhaps the number of collectors interested in the older 30mm figures is declining?

The pre order makes sure that you reserve your figures and for those who cant attend Kulmbach, they will for a fee post them to you.
My contact is Sonja.Decker@stadt-kulmbach.de
Hope that clears things up

Scholtz sells some Mignot figures. They reduced the price already but still high.

It´s the same as with the Gottstein Murten set. When new figures are no longer available the price rises...
