FIRST 54MM FIGURE - SIR GILBERT CHALFONT

Here is my first attempt at painting 54mm figures. I was pleased to be able to use plain block colours and no shading which certainly speeded up the process which is what I wanted with very little spare time. After years of painting 15mm and 28mm figures with heavy shading it was a real joy to return to basics.  I used a white undercoat on this one but will return to black I think for the future. Sir Gilbert will be in command of one of my Royalist foot regiments, as he looks suitably cavalier. The figure is an old Sandersen one I think from my odds box.
