A nice part of this community is the achievement system we have going with medals! Small tokens to show the honour in completing models, uploading in our gallery, making grand armies and winning competitions.
Today we are introducing two new medals to the site. Both were made by members finding time to help out CDO. Check out the Call to Arms thread and see how you can help the community.
The medals have been discussed in the Immortal Section (thanks for your input) and the Staff Section..
This beauty is designed by Enjoysrandom.
This medal is awarded for bringing new Chaos Dwarf models into the world. It's awarded to the members who're responsible for making this happen. A criteria for recieving this medal is that the models have been cast in a reasonable quantity and sold or given back to the community.
Bronze - is for making 1 model.
Silver - is for making 5 models.
Gold - is for making 10 models.
And as we have some excellent sculptors in our community we'll be handing out some right away!
Gold: Baggronor, Rozmax and Admiral - with LKMiniatures and Macrocosm getting theirs upon completion of their campaign.
Bronze: Ravenswood (1), Grimestonefire (3)
Are we missing someone? Properly - then please give a shout!
This beauty is designed by Carcearion.
The Dark Apostle medal is handed out for bringing word of CDO to the internet. This community is driven by members uploading content, donating prizes, discussing rules and joining competitions. We want to award those members who spread the word of CDO. Link their own blogs in facebook groups, promote our competitions, commenting on other forums, bring in new members from tournatments and so on. For this medal to work, members will have make mention of themselves. Please keep in mind that CDO does not want to become known for spamming.
And to get the show started we'll be awarding to bronze medals right away.
Both tjub and TheHoodedMan have very recently been directly responsible for bringing in new members to the site.

|Community Awards 2015|
The nomination period is over. Let me say a big thank you to all the members who have sent in nominations for the community awards.
The three members with most nominations have now been posted in a voting poll.
Go to this subsection of the forum to cast your votes: Voting threads.
The voting will end after 14 days on Aug. 28th, after this the winners of every category will recieve their medals.
Any comments posted in the voting threads for Community Awards will be deleted. Discussion about the subject should be taken elsewhere.
A task for the members and nominees
We have no clue as to how many members actually check the news section of the forum. And since no posts are made in the voting threads, they won't pop up in "View Today's Posts". So every member (especially those with medals on the line) are encouraged to link/promote their voting threads in signiatures, blogs and showcases. Spread the word.
| Community Awards 2015 - (Late) Nominations!

|Fellow Dawi Zharr. Another great year (and a half) has passed in Zharr-Naggrund and the CDO community. So it's once again time to show our appreciation of fellow members with awards. |
Thanks to Carcearion we now have some medals for this - and already the ones for next year.
Our newer members might have seen profiles with some impressive Golden Cups, this is the yearly Community Awards. Members are nominated and voted for by the community.
Only 5 medals are awarded each year, special pixel bling never to be awarded again - as such these medals are held in high regard and it's an honour to receive a nomination.
So with all this now is the time to get your nominations in. REMEMBER: As in years past this is only for achievements in the year 2015. Anything that has been achieved in years past other than 2015 is not counted for nominations. So keep this in mind when nominating your fellow hobbyists.
We know this is really late in the year for this! So you guys have to do some work now. Go scout the sub sections, check the blogs, look at the dates and look back in your memories.
The categories for 2015 are unchanged from previous years and are as follows:
Best Attitude - A member should be nominated on their forum presence and behavior toward other members, displaying exemplary attitudes of kindness and encouragement.
Best General - 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 -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 - 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 - 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!
What to nominate for?
The staff encourage you to supply the reason for your nominations. As these nice words should not be left only for the Staff, reasons will be posted as anonymous quotes in the upcoming voting threads. If for some reason you can't think of who to nominate in a specific category, please do some research. If you don't know who the best general should be for example, take a look at the Gaming section of the forum - some members shine through with their tactical knowledge and advice. Who's been posting battle reports, tactic and helping others with army lists? These should help you come up with a nominee.
Given the late nature of this years awards, we'll do something new. If members feel the need for, they are welcome to make a '2015 summary post' in the thread. Highlighting the best blog projects, count their number of games played, link their battle report section etc.
It will not be counting as unsportsly or against the rules.
How to Nominate
PM your nominations to Staff (a special user that all Staff have access to).
NOTE: You can only nominate one person per category. If you can't decide which one, flip a coin! You can nominate the same person for different categories.
Nominations should include this:
The contribution that should be recognized and why they should be recognized.
As in the past the nominations will be tallied and ranked. The top 3 members for each category will then be sent a pm asking them to accept or reject their nomination. If they accept they will then become an official nominee.
If a member rejects the nomination it will be offered to the person with the 4th highest votes, and so on. This may mean if a lot of people reject nominations, or there are not enough people nominated in a category there may only be 1 or 2 people to vote for (or potentially none).
If a person does not reply to the pm we will work on the assumption that they want it and it will automatically be accepted on the behalf of the Staff.
We will not tell people how many other nominees there are, nor will we reveal who the nominees are prior to the next posts that announces the official voting.
The final nominees' names will then be prepared in separate polls for all to vote on early February. After this there will be a 2 week public poll to decide the winners.
The deadline for sending in nominations is 11:59 PM EST (eastern standard time) August 13th, 2016. This gives a solid 2 weeks to get nominations in and prepare the polls.
Note, any members with warnings outstanding will not be given the opportunity to accept a nomination. We will not discuss any of this with the community at large as this is only pertinent to the Staff and the member(s) in question.
The Staff CAN be nominated, HOWEVER, they must not be nominated for their staff-related duties. For example, Admiral could be nominated for his work on organizing competitions and themes, but not for being excellent at moderating the forums (sticking threads, being sheriff etc.). This way we are all on fair ground. We are dealing with what we offer the forum as members, not as staffers.
If you have any questions, ask Admiral or Bloodbeard, we'll take it to the Staff section if we can't answer right away!
Think about it all, find your nominees and send them in.
On behalf of all CDO Staff

K'daai Fireborn do not qualify, since they lack musicians and standard bearers.

Basing is unrestricted and up to your discretion with the following exception: Display bases and plinths are not allowed, and neither are diorama style bases.
