I mixed these for the melee with other unique formed castings, the Russians are not as good, proportionate or body wise but I like the painting and they seem to blend well stylistically

I am not sure of the answer, Ray
But Heinrichsen made thousands of figures and used to gather them in boxes to represent a scene or another; some boxes could have up to more than 100 figures
Sometime they made different boxes just by changing a few figures or a  group
Many of the Breitenstein sets are issued from these boxes but maybe not all of them

Eric,
 I too have been keeping the photos of many sets, no way I could save all, I do have a question that you might be able to answer?
Many of these "sets" are obvious because thay have accompanying boxes and some are said to various manufacterers together, but many of the "Themed" sets such as Borodino or Sedan 1870 or battle of Leipzig 1813, were these first sold as a grouped set? or are they composed and put together by previous buyer/seller?

Yes Ray, the Bretenstein collection was one of the largest; 450000 figures it is said !!!
I bid on a few Douchkine at the beginning and after I only try to get some old Heinrichsen sets

I try to keep a copy of each picture of Heinrichsen sets; when the sale will be over I will see with Marko how we can put the pictures on line


About your "Hussards-Cossacks" set they are originally plundering french hussars, I think from B&S

Nice additions Ray
I see you also follow the Bretenstein collection
Some nice things in it
I just bought the 4cm crusades set from Heinrichsen; expensive but very rare and in excellent condition
I will post it ASAP

Hello Eric,
 Coming from someone with a world class collection, I appreciate it!
Yes I am Following the Bretenstein sale, to someone who is reletively new to flats it has been a wonderous near class room education as to what is out there and possible! not a week goes by when I am not OHHing and AHHing about some set posted, the collection must have been a wonderous thing to see in it's totality, I'm wondering how much was displayed?
I have bid several times but for the most part there is someone who wants these more.   :'(
Sincerly,
Ray

Some nice additions, particularly like what I assume are the cossacks.


mark  8)


Hello Mark and thank you, When I originally purchased this set it was from a gentleman who said they were painted by a women in Moscow, I initially thought they were Hussars on receiving them the color was so different and there seemed no set unit pattern that I suspected that they also might be irregulars or cossacks, maybe the forum could help?
