Thanks Tinman !
Don't worry for the quality of the pictures as they are well readable. Moreover, I have learnt anything I din't known and it is very interesting.

The earliest list I have of Muller's "Battle of Crecy" is from the 1970s, when the writer/journalist Erwin Ortmann owned the molds. The set contained 26 English figures, 17 French figures, and 6 Geonese crossbow men. A total of 49 figures. Muller edited a number of additional figures that could be used for the series. I'm guessing that Otto Gottstein used more than the 49 figures when he built his famous "Battle of Crecy" diorama.


I attach the list and pictures of the figures. My apologies for the poor quality of the photos as they were shot quickly with a cell phone.

Thanks Erich. I'll visit the German Ebay site.

Thanks Jonh. The first set dysplayed by Scholtz are well the searched figures for the Crécy battle. I 'll verify the rest.

Richard,


Scoltz/Berliner Zinnfiguren have some sets that look like Muller figures however they frequently they don't advertise the old Editor.  See for example -

This is just a hunch though as I haven't seem many pictures of the original figures.


regards
John

Thanks Erich,
I am searching for these old series both engraved by L Frank, because I have got some figures and I would like complete them and swapp the spare ones.
I know Wolfgang Friedrich. He is a very good engraver, nowadays one amongst the best. I collect his figures of the 30 Years War, particularly these after the drawings by A Wilke.
