Hi, there ToP readers, Rich back again. In my last post (if you can remember that far back!) I promised more gold shiny miniatures, this time from Forge World, without any further ado here is my take on Rogal Dorn.
This was a really fun mini to paint, he has loads of detail, it was the first time I painted a head of the miniature, I found this helped me hugely, I’ll certainly be doing that again.
I chose to paint Dorn looking slightly younger than the Forge World painters did, giving him light brown hair with a fade as well as a less weathered face.
If it wasn’t for the scenic base that Dorn sits in I would have mounted him on a larger 50mm base. Overall I’m pleased with how he came out, I think its a really lovely miniature and the designers have done a great job with his heroic pose, what do you think?
Drop a comment below, bye for now – Rich.
Thank you 🙂
Great job, I see you resisted the temptation to give him mutton chops beard. Good.
Yea I’m not a fan of those either, I wanted a younger look. I’m glad you like it!
I've just received my own Dorn and he looks like a tricky mini to paint; very intricate detail. I'm still not sure where the internet got the idea that Rogal Dorn should have a moustache or some kind of facial hair!
Oh great I hope you enjoy it. You’re right he is intricate, he took me a while to paint but I really enjoyed it.
