Rogal Dorn; part 1


Finally, I have him, my Primarch, the final piece of my Imperial Fists puzzle (until I decide to get a new thunderhawk)!

Simon has done a fantastic job with him - I am incredibly happy with the pose and everything, he's what I expected to be: the general, the tactician - he's not a fighting machine like Corax or Curze is so I was glad he has been modeled in a more contemplative and analyzing pose like as though he is taking stock of the battle in front him and working out what the Imperial Fists next move it.

So, as you may have seen, I made a start on painting him last week and I've slowly but surely been making progress. At the moment I am still basecoating him as I want to make sure I get it right. There's some work to be done on the non-golds on him but I've planned how I'm going to paint him now:

Gold armour:

  1. Retributor Armour
  2. Riekland Fleshshade
  3. Auric Armour Gold
  4. Liberator Gold
  5. Stormhost Silver

Red detailing (cloak, Storms Teeth casing):

  1. Screamer Pink
  2. Druchii Violet
  3. Mephiston Red
  4. Wazdakka Red
  5. Evil Suns Scarlet
Bolter grip and tabard detailing:
  1. Zandri Dust
  2. Agrax Earthshade
  3. Ushabti Bone

Bolter casing and armour seals:
  1. Abbadon Black
  2. Eshin Grey

Exposed cables, gun barrel, etc.:

  1. Leadbelcher
  2. Nuln Oil
  3. Stormhost Silver


  1. Bugmans Glow
  2. Riekland Fleshshade
  3. Cadian Fleshtone
  4. Kislev Flesh

I imagine this is going to keep me busy for a while but I don't mind, I want to make sure I do this beautiful model justice!

Until next time,
