  Golden Hat XXI

Welcome to the 21st Golden Hat competition!

"Horns and tusks, unrest 'mongst the thralls! Watch out for slave rebellion and keep on loading that Hellcannon's soulfurnace with Goblins..."

Subject Matter: Slavery and Warmachines
For this Golden Hat contest we want more warmachine slaves! This could range from solitary slave crewmembers, such as Dreadquake Mortar slave Ogres; through Hobgoblin Bolt Throwers; to artillery or Tenderizers crewed entirely by the lowliest of slaves. It is as such a theme with a relatively free scope for your creativity.

Entries will consist of one or more warmachine slave crew members. Optional composition considerations: Inclusion of the associated warmachine for the slave(s) is entirely optional in the entry photos.  Furthermore, although the focus of the entry must be on the slave models, a maximum of one Chaos Dwarf or Bull/Boar Centaur model may also be included in the entry, if desired (see below).  

Aside from slave crew for warmachines there is no limitation on warmachines from a particular army list and entrants may take their queue from any source, including creating and painting crew for a warmachine of their own design.

Any number of slave-crewed warmachines may be part of your entry. If you choose to enter more than one warmachine into the contest, then the maximum amount of Chaos Dwarfs/Centaurs is raised to one extra Chaos Dwarf or Bull/Boar Centaur per warmachine after the first one, though the slaves should still thoroughly outnumber their overlords.

If you are unsure if your entry will fit the subject matter, please contact Admiral and he'll sort it out with the rest of the staff.

Basing is unrestricted and up to your discretion with the following exception: Display bases and plinths are not allowed, though diorama bases are allowed for entries featuring a warmachine.


Specifics
Subject: Artillery slave(s)
The Due Date: 11:59 PM September 30th, 2014 EST (Eastern Standard Timezone)

Please read the full rules that apply to the Golden Hat competition before submitting your entry.

Submission
All entries must be sent to the Golden Hat account no later than the due date. Entries will not be accepted after this. (Entrants have ~8 weeks to complete entries). If for some reason you are having trouble with your submission, contact one of the Staff. In order to avoid problems, entrants should not wait until the last minute to submit their entries.

How to Enter
Upload up to 4 photos of your entries to the Internet. Photos may not have additional text or items/models unrelated to your entry.  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:
- Walk across the backs of the cowed masses you have scorned and pushed aside, in order to take your place in the vaunted Golden Hat Hall of Fame.
- Receive the Golden Hat medal for your online persona (As with previous Golden Hats; if there are more then 10 entrants the silver and bronze Golden Hat Medals will be awarded as well).
- Everyone who enters gets a number of slaves equal to the number of entries. If 20 people enter we award 20 slaves to each person who entered. Entries will count towards a veteran medal.
- Win a flayman! See below for details.

Once all entries are received a thread will be created for voting and determining the winners!

If there are any questions it is best post them here so that everyone can benefit from any details or clarifications that may arise.

Prize
The winner of the contest will have 1 unpainted flayed enemy of the Chaos Dwarfs converted by Admiral after the contest. It will be based on a 20x40 or 25x50 base, and posted on his expense to the winner's address. The base size of the "flayman" is the winner's choice, as is the enemy's race in question, though it may not be larger than an Orc, Gor or Saurus. Also be careful with your choice, since not every man-sized creature will make a good-looking "flayman"! The winner will be contacted about the prize via PM after Artisan's Contest XV is over.

Also, one random entrant will receive a set of 3rd edition Chaos Dwarf mortar with crew from Fuggit Khan!

Should you wish to donate a prize to the contest, please PM Admiral about it and he'll sort it out with you and the Staff.

Good luck everyone!

Welcome to Artisan's Contest XV!

The Dark Sorcery Unleashed

The theme for this Artisan's Contest is to create up to 3 pieces of magic counters for Chaos Dwarfs, which somehow relates to the subject "The Dark Sorcery Unleashed" (which could be a literal or abstract interpretation of the concept). These could be anything from spell counters, Storm of Magic frog markers, miscast markers to Sorcerer's Curse counters. Submissions of spell counters must be for spells available to Chaos Dwarf wizards in Forgeworld's Legion of Azgorh army list.

This contest is relatively unrestricted in terms of scope - if you think a magic counter is appropriate for Chaos Dwarfs, then it's most likely suitable. Any uncertainties you may have about fulfilling the criteria can be mediated before the deadline with Admiral via PM.

Your pieces of magic counters must be painted 3D models, meaning no cardboard or stone counters may be submitted. The magic counters may be of any size and have any kind of base, though bear in mind it should be practically useful during games. Bigger does not equal better! Whether you kitbash or sculpt your magic counters is up to you as a participant, as is the choice of whether or not to identify your markers with text descriptions (on their bases perhaps, or maybe on a small sign or spell card beside them) with their particular spells. It is also up to you whether or not to include miniatures like burning enemies, Daemon familiars or acolytes as parts of your magic counters (though they must be on the same base as the counter they're part of). Let your imagination run wild!

Deadline

The deadline for the submission of entries is the 14th of July 2014 at 11:59pm EST.

Only enter if you are happy with the rules as they are stated:

Rules of the Competition

Each member may only enter once.

Each member may submit up to three (3) magic counters, all of which must be in the same submission PM and the same photos.

Create pieces of magic counters, with "The Dark Sorcery Unleashed" as your inspiration. The maximum and minimum dimensions of the counters are unrestricted. Basing is unrestricted, though each counter must be confined to one base and not spread over several.

Submissions should only include pictures of the magic counters, not of other miniatures or scenery.

You may not submit pictures of counters that have been entered into other online competitions.

Don't post your entries in the forum before Artisan's Contest XV is over.

How to Enter?

Submit your entry by sending a PM to Staff (a special user that all Staff have access to) with four photos of your entry. All of your magic counters should feature together in each of the photos. Please do not send an e-mail to any of the admin or staff accounts as this is a sure fire way to have your entry overlooked.

Please note that your entry will benefit if the photos are all clearly composed, since voters will base their judgement upon what they can see in the pictures on their computer screens.

How will this be judged?

By the middle of July we will post all entries to a new entries thread where members can vote.

There will be Gold, Silver and Bronze Artisan's medals.

Prize

The winner of the contest will have 1 unpainted flayed enemy of the Chaos Dwarfs converted by Admiral after the contest. It will be based on a 20x40 or 25x50 base, and posted on his expense to the winner's address. The base size of the "flayman" is the winner's choice, as is the enemy's race in question, though it may not be larger than an Orc, Gor or Saurus. Also be careful with your choice, since not every man-sized creature will make a good-looking "flayman"! The winner will be contacted about the prize via PM after Artisan's Contest XV is over.

Should you wish to donate a prize to the contest, please PM Admiral about it and he'll sort it out with you and the Staff.

Good Luck everyone!
