|As some of you may know, one of our forum's most prolific posters, Thommy H, became a published author yesterday!|
From the publisher's website:
From writer Thomas Heasman-Hunt, Legacy follows Emily Ajax and her loyal crew across star systems and nebulae, taking in the astonishing sights of their universe and facing down enemies old and new in the finest tradition of space opera adventure.
In a distant part of space in some unknown epoch, humanity has spread across the stars. With access to wondrous technology like the tidal drive that allows for interstellar travel – albeit not without cost – peace has been won after long years of conflict. The architect of that peace was the swashbuckling Captain Ajax, a hero and a legend. But now Captain Ajax has died, leaving his daughter and only heir, Emily, to grapple with his legacy.
The petulance of a spoiled princess opens the door to a galactic conspiracy, and sets the scene for a new conflict in the troubled Four Quadrants. Emily Ajax has a lot to live up to, but in command of her father’s famous ship, The Sunskimmer, she may have the potential to become a hero of even greater renown than him.

eBook (All Formats): ISBN 9780995763784
For release worldwide through retailers, distributors and wholesalers on the 20th of March 2017.
That's right people, you can buy a legit pile of paper wrapped in a cover containing Thommy's printed words! I've always loved how this community has been able to attract and support creatively talented people.
I know Thommy isn't a huge fan of self-promotion, so I thought I'd do a bit of promotion for him. I think he's earned it! I bought a hardcover copy for myself.

Artisan's Contest XXI
Chaos Dwarf Boardgames!
The goal of this contest is to create a 'Chaos Dwarf themed boardgame'.
In recent years Games Workshop have put of a truckload of different boardgames, based around their miniatures. Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower, Bloodbowl, The Horus Heresy: Betrayal at Caith, Gangs of Commarragh, Gorechosen, Stormcloud Attack etc.
We want you to create a boardgame using Chaos Dwarf miniatures (or related miniatures).
The size of your boardgame is completely up to you as an entrant.
* Your boardgame must include rules for and be centered around some kind of Chaos Dwarf, Hobgoblin or Bull Centaur miniatures.
You can use 28mm miniatures from any company as long as they are evil dwarfs (or bull centaurs, hobgoblins), Manowar ships, Warmaster etc.
* Your entry must include all rules, graphics, counters etc that must be used in playing the game. Besides miniatures.
Your entry must include written rules for your game. If the game needs specific counters you must include those for printing.
* You're allowed to asume your players (being wargamers) have access to some standard terrain, rulers, assorted dice, coins or coloured stones for counters.
* Scale. You can enter as little as a 1 page pdf document with text on how to play duels between two heroes. Or you can enter a .rar archieve with a full colour rulebook, art, fluff text, print and cut tokens and a campaign system for your game. The scale is completely up to you.
Here's some ideas for possible boardgames containing Chaos Dwarfs.
* Bullcentaur track racing.
* Zharrling bathtub ship battles with Manowar or Admiralty miniatures.
* Knife in the back - a sneaky git game of knife fighting.
* Arena Combat - Dawi Zharr pitfighters against the monsters from the wasteland.
* Petried! A magical duel between propehts, last to petrify wins.
* Minecart racing. Hobgolin slavemasters racing in cart through a labyrinth.
You're allowed to be inspired by known games, but with changes. Think 2d6 dice games, ludo, chess, rock-paper-scissors. There's a lot of simple mechanics, that can make a quick small boardgame.
How and what to enter
To enter this competition you must provide a single file for the Staff, containing your finished game. Please provide a link to dropbox, googledrive or similiar cloud service. Send the link in a PM to Bloodbeard.
Or send your entry in an email to Bloodbeard on
Blodskaeg (funky-a) gmail (dotdotdot) com.
Please provide a .pdf, .rar or .zip containing your complete boardgame.
The Staff will then host all entries, so entries can remain anonymous.
Writing rules, making a nice setup, testing your game - it all takes time. Entries must be provided to Bloodbeards mail or as a PM before:
April 19th - 2017, 23.59 GMT+1.
Our very own Jackswift have donated a mighty fine prize for the 1st place in this competition.
10 metal miniatures from Russian Alternative. The Dwarfs of Fire Canyon with Harqebuses.
A big thank you to Jackswift! You should consider sending him some slaves.
If you want to contribute with prizes for this or future competitions, please contact Bloodbeard og Admiral.
Go go go! Let's make some cool boardgames. Any questions, please let us know.

Not only has the site surpassed ten years online, but another important milestone was hit. I noticed it a few weeks ago, but wanted to make sure everyone had chance to focus on the 2016 Community Awards and voting:
Tjubs blog has reached over 1 million views for his awesome chaos dwarfs despite the fact of them being sold)
To the best of my knowledge this is the first thread on the entire site to reach this many views (probably one of the most replied to as well).
Congrats in the journey/endeavor Tjub.

|Community Awards 2016|
The voting period is over and we have some winners of the community awards 2016.
First of all thanks you to all the Members who took time to nominate their fellow Dawi Zharr. Thanks to the members who actually votes on the different categories to let us find some winners!
We've included all your heart warning words attached to your nominations. There's far too much warmth here for you do Dawi Zharr. Better go skin a goblin, get some evil back in those hearts.
Let the awards be given!
Best Attitude -
Abecedar, A constant motivator, commentator and hobbyist over an extensive period of time, always positive and nice to read.
Always ready to pipe in and tell you what you need to hear (good or bad), and never leaves you wanting to give him ten lashes with your whip.
A member should be nominated on their forum presence and behavior toward other members, displaying exemplary attitudes of kindness and encouragement.
Best General -
for his massive nights long 8th edition battle, for his endurance, good tactical decisions and creativity in preparing the game.
14,000 Point Legendary Battle!!! His tactical analysis, strategic gambits (or fumbles), amazing battle report, and over all sharing the event with us from building the battle field and writing the scenario all the way to through to the actual weekend of mayhem it self was the most fun I've ever had war-gaming while not actually war-gaming.
This member is always ready to give advice on army lists, has very good lists of his own, and perhaps has won a tournament or two using his Chaos Dwarf army.
Best Hobbyist -
Pappa Midnight, Winner of the latest GH, but otherwise also an excellent and talented convertor and astonishing painter which does really inspiring models.
His high contrast work and color scheme exemplifies not only the gruesome burning darkness of the Chaos Dwarves, but also their over the top ostentatious style.
For the best red in the business.
A nominee for this award has contributed an amazing model, or models that exemplifies what a Chaos Dwarf army should look like: flawless execution of conversion and painting while adhering to the Chaos Dwarf mythos.
Best Contributor -
Admiral, To say nothing of his work as a moderator or his numerous contributions as a writer of engaging lore and stories of Zharr-Niggrund I think his work on the extremely interesting and characterful Evil Dwarves of Ancient Times alone is enough to mark him as best contributor of the year- giving all of us new hobby fuel and more then a few great discussions about chaos dwarf society as we follow along with his progress and bounce around ideas with him as sculptor and fellow hobbyist.
His slow but amazing conversion work and excellent theme really pull the hobbyist portion together for me.
The Dwarves of Ancient Times are a great addition to the Chaos Dwarf world. Exquisite quality, Extremely defined and detailed, and consistent in releasing new content to the range. Honorable mention to AtomTaylor who has released some great work in the way of old 3rd edition Dawi'Zharr and although the style isn't what i am looking for 2017 should hold some big hat variants of his work that will be great additions to my army.
Admiral's green stuff skills has reached new levels this past year and his productiveness is through the roof. I like it.
From the minis, to the bits, to the stories, Admiral as every angle covered when it comes to selling your soul to Hashut.
This award will go the member that has contributed most to the cause of the Chaos Dwarfs. He or she has done or made something that has profoundly benefited the presence of Chaos Dwarfs as a whole!
Best Overall Member -
Admiral. Admiral for sculpting the wonderful Dwarves of Ancient Times, and working hard to create some amazing works with regards to his commercial thread and the additions to both Lore AND encouraging other members.
With moderating the webpage the way he does as well as his updates to the "Of Ancient Times" range is always helping to improve CDO in many ways. Making this forum the best out there, not just for the topic but for the community and a good community needs someone like Bloodbeard and Admiral to keep things afloat, Great work to both of you but Admiral takes the ship! so with that said Honorable mention to Bloodbeard, slthough I have had little to do with him, from what I read is a good contender for the spot.
We should rename this the Admiral award. Year after year the lovely swede delivers an extraordinary amount of work to the glory of Hashut and our community. Even though 2016 has been less active than usual, Admiral is still the man <3
This member may not be the best hobbyist, might not ever win a tournament, but he or she has a great presence on the site, the forum, the wiki, the chat and whatever else! They are dedicated to the cause of the Chaos Dwarfs!
Thank you CDO
Thank you members for making this community what it is! Thank you for bringing content to out site! Keep it going.
Stay tuned for Artisan's Contest
There's another contest in the making and there a really nice prize lines up for the winner!
