well painted, I mean, and, if you think about the time it needs to paint them, not too expensive

and the figures are very rare


(I am not the seller)  :)

These moulds, if I am not mistaken, are in the hands of a Swiss museum who have no immediate plans to cast and sell the figures. I expect they will be sought after, though gauging a price is difficult. Maybe eBay.de would be the place to sell. They have different characteristics in the set, some are designed for example by Mohr which are very different to the others. You can see his designs just by looking at the catalogue, they are unmistakeable. But it is a lovely set of figures.
I have the full set fortunately, although some of my figures are missing detail in the casting and I would like to replace some. So the quality of the casting is important in the price, and of course the quality of the painting.
It will be interesting to see how you get on.

If you were to sell there would be a great deal of interest here.  The Murten sets, particularly Gottstein portion,  are very sought after and hard to find in general at the moment.

Thank you all I believe I may have the full set I just have to sort through them all , very time consuming as they are spread through many boxes , 700 odd figures which are fun sorting and frustrating at the same time . Originally thought I would sell them all but getting attached to some now lol

I think the figures are from Eugen Blum (1939-1962)  a swiss man. It could be a part of the battle of Morat (Mürten), battle between the Swiss and the duke of Burgondy (Charles le Téméraire).

That's part of a very large series of the battle of morat when the Swiss defeated the army of Charles the bold of burgundy. Engraved by sixtus Meier. EB is Eugene Blum who commissioned it in the 50s I believe. You can't get the figures at the moment so they're in very high demand. Hope that helps!
