The Rogal Dorn Battle Tank is a formidable war machine, capable of holding the line or leading assaults with its massive firepower. This versatile multipart plastic kit allows you to construct a Rogal Dorn Battle Tank that surpasses the size of the mighty Leman Russ Battle Tank. Its main turret offers a choice between the relentless firepower of a twin battle cannon or the devastating might of an oppressor cannon with a co-axial autocannon.
Equipped with a secondary hard point on the hull, the Rogal Dorn can be armed with either a castigator gatling cannon to decimate hordes of infantry or a pulveriser cannon for engaging enemy armor. The kit also provides various optional weapon configurations, such as sponson mounts with heavy bolters or multi-meltas, as well as forward mounts for heavy stubbers or meltaguns. Enhancements like additional armor for the tracks, tow hooks, viewing slits, extra fuel, a search light, and stowed equipment allow for further customization.
In addition, the kit includes three crew members: a spotter, a tank officer, and a gunner for the pintle-mounted heavy stubber. The gunner can be assembled with a choice of five head options or replaced with closed hatches for added variety and personalization. With its extensive range of options and details, the Rogal Dorn Battle Tank offers an impressive centerpiece for your Astra Militarum forces, ready to unleash devastation on the battlefield.

Apply a base coat of black or grey primer to the entire Rogal Dorn Battle Tank model. This will provide a smooth surface for the paint to adhere to and enhance the overall appearance.
- Step 2: Base coat the hull and turret
Using a large brush, apply a base coat of your chosen color to the hull and turret of the tank. For example, you can use Mechanicus Standard Grey to achieve a neutral gray color.
