"Break out the whip!"

Zanko Presents: Artisan's Contest XXV!

Slave Flesh

The goal here is to make some slaves for your Chaos Dwarf collection! People can enter with any number of slave models, but note that ordinary Hobgoblins do not count as slaves for the purposes of this contest (they're rather a privileged middlemen slave caste). Slaves can come in virtually any shape and size, be it Gnoblar, Goblins, Orcs, Manlings, Ogres, Giants, bound Asscannons or weirder still: They can be gladiatorial fighters, labourers, sacrificial victims, cannon fodder, sentient beasts of burden, unwilling mutilated body part donators locked up in a Daemonsmith's cage like a bird with clipped wings (a fate especially prone for Elves, due to their flesh's value as alchemical ingredients, see Tamurkhan), or something else entirely. Likewise, you are welcome to include slavedrivers (whether Chaos Dwarf or Hobgoblin, or something else) to keep your slaves attentive.

You are welcome to make a diorama out of your entry, if you wish, e.g. having a monstrous slave or a whole gang of lesser slaves hauling bagage or towing a war machine; or toiling in a mine; or hard at working digging out in the field; or being blasted apart, drowned or crushed in an industrial accident;  or having dozens of slaves carry an oversized throne for a Chaos Dwarf overlord during a parade; or having slaves thrown into molten metal or scorched upon a fire altar; or having living slaves disembowelled for scrying in their intestines; or polishing their master's  vaunted big hat; or rising in revolt against their oppressors; or being auctioned off at the slave market; or sitting in cramped cages or chained up in tight slave barracks; or something else entirely. The sky is the limit!

The CDO Staff won't be picky with what entries are accepted. Instead we expect voters to reward those entries which play to the spirit of the contest theme, as is usually the case.

Still, if you are unsure whether your entry will meet the requirements please PM Admiral.


Zanko will reward the gold a kit of resin Goblin Wolfriders from the Russian Alternative!

While the silver winner will carry home a kit of 4 Deathspitter Blunderbusses of Ancient Times, sculpted by Jon Horsleben:

The bronze winner will get a little kit of 2 Tjubling Blunderbuss Extras, courtesy of Tjub:

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


The deadline for the submission of entries is September 4th 2018 at 11:59pm EST.

Rules of the Competition

Each member may only enter once.

Model and paint slave models.

Bases or no bases are up to you.

Submissions should include up to four pictures. No overlaid words of explanation or photoshop effects in your submitted photos please.

You may not submit pictures of a model that have been entered into other online competitions or posted in a finished state before.

Don't post your entries in the forum before the contest is over.

See also the General Rules & Guidelines.

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. 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 missed.

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?

Sometime after the due date we will post all entries to a new thread and voting can commence!

Good luck everyone!

  Exporting the CDO Contest Model in T9A & Chaos Dwarfs sighted in AoS

0Chaos Dwarfs Online stand as an example of how a wargaming community, when left out in the cold, can keep the flame alive by all manner of creative drives, ranging from fan-written army books, artwork, conversion articles, contests, image galleries and a string of other activities and features. What once was true for a fringe element of the Warhammer community, became true for large parts of it following the End Times.

One fruit of the new fantasy wargame scene is the Ninth Age (T9A), a historically based fantasy setting and miniature game close to Warhammer Fantasy. Now, T9A has followed in Chaos Dwarfs Online's footsteps and launched their first competition based on CDO's doings over the years (but with a contest software of their own for voting). Might be fun to check out, and maybe even an excuse to draw some evil midgets in combat against dark warriors of fell gods:

T9A Wrote:

Today, the Ninth Age Team reveal its first Art Contest, pitting Warriors of the Dark Gods against others. Itching for some drawing or painting? Have some ideas to sketch out? Got an epic visual in your head to get down on paper? Then now is a good opportunity to let loose your inner artist!

Check it out, there are a slew miniature prizes up for grabs, including a random give-away:

Art Contest I

This is your chance to have your fantasy artwork show up in official publications!

Expect more of the same to come if this catch on, and who knows if modelling/painting and even writing competitions could lie around the corner?

Furthermore, Chaos Dwarfs have now been glimpsed in Age of Sigmar background! Chaos Dwarf pirates spotted. Who knows what hobbyist creativity this may spark? Pirate

Promising fluff nuggets indeed, and a sign that the evil Dwarf archetype refined by Games Workshop and Chaos Dwarf enthusiasts over the years is here to stay in fantasy.

Just wanted to mention it: Back in the day, these kinds of sightings and developments may have been front page stuff on this very site.
