Welcome to the voting thread for the 20th Golden Hat modeling and painting competition, sponsored by The Russian Alternative!
How to vote:
Please submit 3 numbers as votes by sending a PM to Golden Hat, account (an special account all Staff members can access). We had 19 entries this time, which means each entrant will receive 19 slaves once the winners have been announced. Also, because there were more than 10 entries, there will be Gold, Silver, and Bronze Golden Hat medals to be awarded!
Each (more or less) anonymous entry is numbered ranging from 1 to 19. There is no need to specify which one you think is 1st, 2nd or 3rd. Simply list the three that you like we will do the rest.
Voting will close at 11:59 PM Dec 8th, 2013 EST (Eastern Standard Timezone). Once the votes are tallied we will post the results.
Remember, each winner will receive a unit of Dwarfs of Fire Canyon, a command unit and the Dwarf of Fire Canyon hero - that's 14 of these fantastically sculpted multi-part metal models to each winner!!
In addition,there will also be a random-draw giveaway for a veritable hoard of bitz (donated by me), and any participant could win!
Great job everyone and good luck!
Update Correction... 19 entries.

The Russian Alternative Presents: The 20th Golden Hat modeling and painting competition!
We are pleased to announce that this Golden Hat has been sponsored by The Russian Alternative! They have offered up prizes for contestants placing 1st, 2nd and 3rd!
We are very happy to say that we would love to take part in this contest! We are prepared to provide sets of our Dwarves of Fire Canyon models (Dwarf+Unit+Command Group) for all three prize places!
That sounds awesome to me! Each winner will receive a unit of Dwarfs of Fire Canyon, a command unit and the Dwarf of Fire Canyon hero - that's 14 of these fantastically sculpted multi-part metal models to each winner!! Did we also mention that our very own Rozmax is the sculptor? No?! Well more of his work can be found here. Of course if you can't wait for the end of the contest to get your hands on some of these models you can always get a head start over at http://russian-alternative.ru/.
In addition, we'd like to have some random-draw giveaways so that any participant will have a chance to win a prize. If you want to contribute a prize, you must be willing to pay for the shipping to send it to a fellow member.
How powerful/amazing/frightening/inventive/fantastic Chaos Dwarfs are!
The challenge for Golden Hat #20 is to give your creativity and skills free reign while showing off just how cool Chaos Dwarfs can be! That's it. Think of the coolest thing(s) you can paint and go with it.
(The only catch is that it must be a model or models and can't be an art painting or life-size cardboard fort in your living room that you've painted up and moved into for the duration of the competition.)
The entry an be anything you like. It may be a single model of any size, it may be two models locked in a duel, it may be a unit, multiple units, one or more warmachines, a whole Chaos Dwarf outpost, city, shipyard, an entire army on a display board, anything - as long as it is painted. Your entry need not be limited to a literal "Chaos Dwarf" piece either, and any reasonable 'slave' model(s) can be entered as well. You can convert or model your own figure(s), or use any existing model(s) from any miniatures range. Just make sure it is fully painted and hasn't been shown in its completed state before (although WIP shots of any conversion or modeling work are welcome in the submission photos).
The choice is unrestricted this time, so you may choose to go with a diorama style, a plinth, or any other sort of base - or no base at all.
Please read the full rules that apply to the Golden Hat competition before submitting your entry.
When is the deadline?
We are going with the same deadline as previous Golden Hats; send all entries to the Golden Hat account no later 11:59 PM Nov 30th, 2013 EST (Eastern Standard Timezone). Entries will not be accepted after that date and time regardless of how cool your submission is. (You have around 8 weeks to complete your entry)
If for some reason you are having trouble with your submission, contact one of the Staff before the deadline. In order to avoid problems, we strongly advise entrants not wait until the very last minute to submit their entries... As things can and do go wrong at the last minute. Please do not send entries to individual Admin or Staff members to submit on your behalf as they may not check their PMs!
How to Enter
Upload up to 4 photos of your entries to the internet. Next, send a PM to Golden Hat (a special user that all Staff have access to) containing the links where the pictures can be found. (Note: This is the same as previous Golden Hats).
If you win:
- Take your place in the Golden Hat Hall of Fame, where your glory will be remembered for years to come.
- Receive the Golden Hat medal for your online persona *
- Everyone who enters gets a number of slaves equal to the number of entries. If 40 people enter we award 40 slaves to each person who entered.
- If you place in the top 3, you'll win a prize, courtesy of The Russian Alternative.
*= As with previous Golden Hats; if there are more then 10 entrants the Silver and Bronze Golden Hat Medals will be awarded as well.
Entries will count towards a veteran medal.
As usual once all entries are received a voting thread will be created. If there are any questions please PM me, another Staff member or post them here.
Subject Matter: Create anything you like that will showcase just how great Chaos Dwarfs can be!
Due Date: 11:59 PM Nov 30th, 2013 EST (Eastern Standard Timezone)
If any forum members would like to help "up the ante" by donating models or other materials as prizes, feel free to contact myself or one of the Staff to help sort out the details.
I myself will be donating a bag of Warhammer Fantasy bits to one random entrant, and I'll make sure it is a good pile of stuff too!
That's it, so get those slaves back to the forges and salt mines and let's have a record-setting number of entries for GHXX!!

Congratulations to everyone. I've updated my master work sheet of all GH and AC contests and we have 6 new Bronze Veteran medals to be doled out to Bolg, cornixt and Lord Aldades, so check your thing for your bling! Quite a few of you are very close to bronze, and four members are one contest entry away from a Silver Veteran medal! For those of you with Silver Veteran medals, keep it up, concerted effort is the way to Gold!!
Stay tuned!! As you all know, the big one, GHXX, is around the corner. Hold on to your hats/beards/yarbles!
