RUMOR CONTROL: Beautiful Homebrew Rogal Dorn

There’s a beautiful new model of Rogal Dorn – but it’s not what you think…

Sculptor & painter Andrey Demidov has been working on a new sculpt of Rogal Dorn for a couple of months now.

You can see the models progression from digital sculpt to physical model here:

Demidov is an astounding artist and his painting is off the charts. Just go back and look at his Instagram gallery.  The model is inspiring and full of detail.

It’s now doing the rounds on Reddit and everywhere else – so just a quick note.



~So enjoy the beauty and the skill – but let’s not put the cart in front of the horse.

    In pretend… Yeeeessssss….. No.. The magic pain glove has see me a vision. And yes… I’m fortying this comment.

      There’s no such sauce product.

  • Quintian

    Of course it doesn’t have anything to do with GW – except, naturally, the IP.
    It’s obvious in both proportions and angles.

    Nice homebrew, still, but very different in overall style.

    Geedubs is suing him in 3…2…1…

    • Andy Wise

      Cue armchair lawyers but if it’s only for his own use and he’s not profiting from it in any way can they sue? Not sure if he’s planning to profit mind you…

      Checks Facebook page. Yep, that should be a suing.

        Legality does not define morality.

  • Adam Richard Corrigan

    GW need to give this man a job, that is gorgeous.

    • ZeeLobby

      Way better than the girlyman model.

  • 3dken

    The rivet on the belt buckle makes it look like it’s flipping you off! Haha!

    • Andy Wise

      It looks like he’s flipping himself off!

    • I noticed that too….lol

    • Severius_Tolluck

      Had same thought

  • Rafał Pytlak

    Where’s the 70s Moustache?!

  • BaronVonYoloing

    I’m going to go against what seems the majority opinion here. To me it doesn’t look right.

    I think it’s the abundance of aquilas but it looks more like an Emperor’s Children model than it does an Imperial Fist. Sans the fist belt of course.

    It’s still a nice model though.

  • David Smith

    I… really don’t like it.
    I can’t put my finger on it, but there’s something which is not quite right.
    Also, what’s with the screaming face on his knee?

  • Kabal1te

    There are some noticeably different proportions here from GW models, which I think makes something seem off. It ids still beautiful work though. I would love to know what printer he has and what techniques he used to get such a smooth finish

    • Severius_Tolluck

      Probaby ha a higher end printer and probably does a quick acetone bath on the fig. Plus a sanding

  • Emprah

    The head is a bit too narrow for the rather bull-jawed Dorn and his wide face.

    However, I think this model is not 40k sized but much bigger, at least I think the Kharn one was, and if they are side by side….

    I like his belt buckle lol
