    Good morning everyone,
    I just finished this old beauty, a 54mm from Sarum Soldiers, a lovely and classic piece for me.
    Most of it is painted in acrylics but there is also some use of oils.
    It's time to put some beloved figures into my showcase !!!
    Greetings,
    Christos

    Just make another one click on the photo after the first one, it will open a page and you will have a magnifying glass to make a close-up.(y)

    Carl I think that you are not reading what I am writing :D
    It's a "Sarum Soldiers" miniature.

    Thanks for the comments guys

    Thank you, yes that helped

    Really lovely paint on that, I agree with other posters the white is superb.

    I have always struggled with white, so avoid it (but then again, I struggle with white, yellow, black, green, blue, pink.......)

    Outstanding work, I love it!

    Hey Carl, the hands are different, what is going on? I think that the info is wrong, it is a Sarum, I have the box.
    And I am not sarcastic :(, I am just teasing you.;)

    Hi Christos, very nice work!
    It is actually a Chota Sahib figure.
    The moulds were sold to Sarum after Sid Horton died in the mid 1990s.
    They continued to make some of the Chota figures from then on.

    Regards ...
