    Hi all

    It has taken me some yeards to try to paint a "big" figure again. Well as the title sais it's a 554mm Chota Sahib figure. I chose trhis figure becouse I really love the "backdated" modelling style. I think it enhaces it's Victorian vive. I'll just add a piece of furniture (chair, small table or whatever) and a carpet in the floor.
    I'm happy with the results and I think that all that small figure painting I've done these years hacve helped me to improve. This has encouraged me to paint another figure in this scale.

    What you think?

    Hi Angel,

    This is a very elegant Chota sahib figure and your painting has captured the mood of the piece perfectly, hopefully you will be encouraged to paint more in this scale!?

    ah hah. I wasn't even being sarcastic about the scale. I really thought it was a huge figure. Now that I know it is 54mm it is even more terrific. Great job sir. what scale did you used to paint?

    Hi all

    Thanks a lot for your encouraging comments.

    No worries Meehan :)
    I usually paint 28mm and 20mm. Sometimes up to 40mm. But I started triying painting 54mm and I didn't get the resuts I wanted. Now I've tried again after some years,a and I think I've improved.

    It's gorgeous and very beautiful.
    Your red is wonderful.
    The facial expression is also excellent.
    I congratulate completion.

    Beautifully done! Every aspect of the figure looks good, but I really like the hair.

    Those Chota sahib mess dress figs were great. I still recall being impressed by a dio with maybe 15 of them that I saw in MM. They also did some great Crimean figures inluding a really neat little Lord Cardigan that I still have in a box somewhere. As I recall the sculptor was Sid Horton.

    Great paint job too!
