Hi all! Quick look at my Rogal Dorn, which I converted from the model of Roboute Guilliman.
He’s wearing his golden armour, which was a gift from the Emperor during the Great Crusade. Some more details to work out, i.e the cloak on his back, the head. Pretty happy with how he turned out so far… What do you think?
I like the use of gubbins to cover up all those U's and Goolimans. What are you doing with the left pauldrons? A double high pauldron, what's the grey middle bit? Great use of RG model, really rich golds too, they washed with Flesh Shade?
Thx?? Well i filled the gaps with parts from shoulder pads or bodies. Have to work this out a little bit. The left side eagle will stay as it is. Retributor Gold washed with Reikland Fleshshade, then Retributor, Liberator Gold, Ironbreaker.
The right foot stands out to me. I know on Guilliman's base he has it planted on an eagle head, but without something there I feel like it's unbalanced. Would it be possible to build up some rocky outcrop there, or maybe some vehicle wreckage so it looks like he's standing on it?

What chainsword bit is that? Looks awesome – better as Dorn than as Guilliman!
Hi thx, it's a double handed chainsword from FW, i think from the Mk III power weapon set??
Oh man, the armour looks so much better in gold than it does in blue! Great job 😀
What did you use for the pteruge on Dorn's armour?
I would like to do the same thing since I think it's missing from the original model and would fit with the Ultra theme (and the FW version of RG)
Aside from that, it is a really great model and you did an incredible job with the gold. Also glad to see someone giving Dorn some love, since I love the Praetorian of Terra (Black Templars and Imperial Fists player here)
Thx?? I used pteruges from a Space Hulk Terminator ( Blood Angels)??
How did you make the eagle? Was it free hand or grabbed it off another model?
It's a Custodes banner.
