This lovely Droste set is on eBay.de now.

From what you state this is only about 1/2 half of it!  (Based on my speed the 30 years war might take that long to paint.)

Hello,

somewhere in his catalog Dr. v. Droste stated that his set "Wallensteins Lager", which is now available from Fechner, is the biggest set ever. I didnĀ“t count how many figures there are but I think more than 250.

By the way: last sunday the complete Murten set by Gottstein, Blum etc. was sold on ebay for nearly 1400 Euros.

I became curious in looking at Hussareiter's fine set of the Cloth of Gold - namely what is the largest set of flats issued based on number of figures?


Mohr has a number of hefty numbers -


Pope Julious and Apollo of Belevedere - 30 figures
Bauenkrieg - 63 figures


Gottstein -
Cortez & Montezuma - 73 figures
Battle of Murten 205 figures
Field of Gold - 46 figures
Valois Kings - 97 figures


I also recall a hefty set of Egyptians pulling a large statue for the pharoah which must run into the 70 or 80s along with Scholtz's Napoleon's retreat from Russia which today is sold in pieces and must be in the 2 - 300 figure range.


So what is the largest set in terms of numbers of figures and has actually finished painting a complete set?

P.S. I suspect Mr. Talmant will be in the running for this as to largest set completed.
