Thanks for the reply. I got a reply from Marbod Gerstenhauer but he didn't know anything about Ochel figures.

Scheibert Moulds are at Zinnfigurenmuseum Katzelsdorf, but these figures are not listet in the catalog.
Maybe Ulla Schiller sold it, the moulds are destroyed or they exist, but will not be casted.Website of Zinnfigurenmuseum

These flats are part of a series of seven pices from Scheibert called „Polen 1935“ and „Kavallerieparade for Marschall Pilsudski“. This is an information from a german Book „Scheibert/Schiller: Geschichte einer Altwiener Zinnfiguren-Offizin“ at page 35/36.
I don‘t know about the owner of the moulds at this time.
Best regards, Henry

I found Geppner engraved figures at Schmalkalder Zinnfiguren  Napoleonics
https://www.schmalkalder-zinnfiguren.de/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=geppner
And on Bernhard Schwarz Website of "Firmengeschichten" (company histories) there are polish soldiers for 1939 mentioned

A new series of polish soldiers (cavalry with german tanks) 1939 is on Catalog of "Zinnprinzessin" (if you are interested in early WW2 subjects)

But those are not Geppner engravings.

I am looking for information about Stanislaus Geppner. According to Heinz Schenzle, he engraved for Ochel and made drewings for Thiel. Does anyone know anything about these figures. I have seen polishes soldiers from about 1939 that have his and Krunert's signatures.
