    Lovely to see the old CS figures appearing again. :)

    I've looked on the Facebook page and the website address given - No prices or photo's of the resurrected figures yet that I could see.
    It would be great and very helpful if you could add some (Possibly on this thread to give everyone an idea)
    Will they be cast in resin or metal?

    Look forward to seeing some 'in the flesh'
    Cheers

    Afternoon Paul,

    We will be hopefully posting pictures next week.

    Prices we are hoping should be around 12.50 a figurine and 19.50 for a double figure set

    i will try and get some more information together these week,

    We are working through so many boxes that haven't seen the light of day for along time.

    If people have any old reference information would be much appreciated also any old images packaging we have already found information for figures we haven't got and we would like to get these reproduced.

    Cheers for letting us know.

    I'll have a look through and see if I've got any old instructions/info for the ones which I've bought.
    In the meantime here are a few photos of some of the ones I've painted up in the last couple of years

    There are a couple of pdf files showing Chota Sahib catalogue pages HERE (courtesy of 'Mirofsoft' on PF)
    Just scroll down the page.

    Cheers,

    I've just come across another site with details on Chota Sahib figures:-
    http://www.lrmminiatures.com/chota-sahib-miniatures.html
    There is a copy of an article from 'Military Illustrated' on Chota Sahib.
    Immediately below this is 'The full Catalog of Chota Sahib Kits', which also contains photographs of most of them.
    Hope this fills a few gaps.

    Cheers,

    Do their moulds exist?
    I remember the Bengal Lancer officer in Shep Paine´s book about figure painting,standing on a magnificant fibre flock tigerskin!

    Nice to see these resurrected. It'd be interesting to see how they stand up to today's stuff.

    CHOTA SAHIB RATTRAY'S SIK OFFICER.

    I have recently taken delivery of this figure. Unfortunately no painting instructions were available.
    I am in the main o.k . re the painting of the figure but I need advice re the medals shown on the figure.
    The officer has 3. I can paint the first 2 as Indian General Service Medals -- the 1896 and 1909 issues. Or do I him from an earlier period and change the medals. The figure is a some point from 1886 onwards, as he has white facings. The 3rd medal though is the problem- it looks like a star rather than a round medal. I doubt it can be the Indian Order of Merit as it is the last medal in the line regarding precedence.
    Any clues?
    Sadly enlarging the Chota Sahib image on Mirof's excellent site does not give good enough definition to resolve my question.
    Many Thanks in expectation.

    Can you post pics of instructions ?

    Nice one Steve

    Afghanistan and Punjab were clasps added to GSM as were Ali and Malakand as far as I can see after a quick look

    He would have done at least 45 years service and joined very young to get the Mutiny IMO of course

    Personally I would go for the diamond medal ......as the Regt didn't serve in Egypt that's out ! ......unless he transferred !

    Happy days

    [IMG]Hope this image helps. There is also another version at the beginning of this thread at msg 5. The Queen Victoria Jubilee medal would be a nice one to go for but not sure -- the issue medal to military was round, the diamond one went to Provosts and Mayors. The order of precedence also would not apply till post WW1 according to Wikipedia(?).
    Thanks for the the contributions so far.
