Nork Deddog is a legend in his own lifetime, an Ogryn whose fighting ability as an Astra Militarum soldier is almost as astonishing as his mental aptitude, which is rare for one of his subspecies. His reputation for loyalty is unsurpassed, and his skills as an Ogryn Bodyguard are in high demand by Imperial officers across the galaxy. Throughout his long career, Nork has saved the lives of well over one hundred officers, earning himself a chest full of medals.
This multipart plastic kit builds Nork Deddog – a unique regimental attaché assigned to protect Astra Militarum Commanders. Nork’s clad in particularly ornate heavy armour, as a reward for his many achievements, and brandishes a huge knife alongside his brutal ripper gun. His distinctive face bears the scars and stitches of Bone ‘ead cranial upgrades, and he has a personal vox-caster mounted on his shoulder, built into the sanctified skull of a fallen Commissar.
The remaining components of this kit can be used to build two Ogryns or Bullgryns.
This kit can alternatively be used to build three Ogryns, three Bullgryns, or an Ogryn Bodyguard with two Ogryns or Bullgryns.

How to paint the Nork Deddog Set
- Step 1: Prepare the Miniature
Inspect your Nork Deddog miniature for any mold lines or imperfections. Use a hobby knife or file to carefully remove or smooth out these lines. If needed, attach the miniature to a base or painting handle for stability.
- Step 2: Prime the Miniature
Apply a thin, even layer of primer to the miniature. This helps the paint adhere better. For Nork Deddog, you can use a black or grey primer spray. Shake the can well, hold it about 6-8 inches away from the miniature, and spray in short bursts to cover the entire model. Let it dry completely.
- Step 3: Base Coat
Start by applying the base coat to the different areas of Nork Deddog. For the armor, use Retributor Armor. Load your larger brush with paint and gently cover the armor areas with smooth brush strokes. If the paint looks too thick, you can dilute it with a small amount of water.
- Step 4: Blocking in Colors
Now it’s time to block in the main colors of Nork Deddog’s details. For his clothing, use Abaddon Black. For his skin, use Bugman’s Glow. Use a smaller brush to carefully paint these areas, making sure to stay within the lines. You can thin the paints slightly with water if needed.
- Step 5: Layering
Layering adds depth and highlights to the miniature. With a smaller brush, apply a lighter tone of paint over the base coat. For Nork Deddog’s armor, use Liberator Gold to add highlights to the raised areas. Apply this paint sparingly, focusing on the edges and raised surfaces.
- Step 6: Fine Details
Now it’s time to add fine details to make Nork Deddog stand out. Use Mephiston Red for any red details, such as insignias or decorations. Be patient and work slowly to avoid any mistakes.
- Step 7: Washing
Apply a wash to enhance the shading and add depth to the miniature. Nuln Oil works well for Nork Deddog. Load a brush with the wash and gently apply it to the recessed areas and crevices, allowing the wash to flow naturally. If it looks too dark, you can use a clean, slightly damp brush to remove excess wash.
- Step 8: Basing
To finish off your Nork Deddog, you can add a simple base. Paint the base in a suitable color, such as Steel Legion Drab. Once it dries, you can glue on some static grass or add other scenic elements if you wish.
