0Happy Holidays-2018 from CDO!

I hope everyone here has a great Holiday Season! (whatever you personally celebrate) and a great New Year.

So you know what it means... The Holiday Thread! The Dark Lord of Hashut (aka) me, has once again rounded up more slaves from the Pits of Zharr Naggrund to do my Christmas bidding. What better way to celebrate being Chaos Dwarfs than to dole out slaves to do your Christmas shopping, clear the latrines or what have you. But be warned these hobgoblins are not yet house broken.

Partake in the poll and see if you're rewarded. Poll will run until December 31st.

Special thanks to CDO member Forgefire for the picture.

Steaming upon high seas do the Chaos Dwarfs scourge distant shores and forgotten lands in their maverick search for plunder. Borne on vessels of sooty steel and sporting smoke-belching chimneys do the Dawi Zharr traverse the world to sate their hunger for wealth, slaves and power, and they will let nothing stand in their way to profit and dark glory. As such, the Blacksmiths of Chaos are a fearsome sight for sailors and shoresfolk on any ocean, carrying blade and guns to foreign realms for the sake of their baleful Dark God, and woe! Woe betide those taken alive...

"Harr harr yarr!"

Titan Wargames Presents: Artisan's Contest XXVI!

Mariners of Malevolence Artwork Challenge

To celebrate the glimpse of Zharr Vyxa (thanks to Thommy H for spotting it!) we're throwing a salty contest! Come join if you ever fancied getting your feet wet, whether in the Old World or beyond fabled Realmgates, or in whatever setting you fancy for your evil midgets! The fiery Dawi Zharr have a solid history with the sea, with official material ranging from an enormous underground tunnel connecting the Sea of Chaos to the navigable River Ruin, through a navy in Man o' War to Dreadfleet's Black Kraken, not to mention various community produce here on CDO. Certainly, the seven oceans and their dark depths are not safe from our grasping hands!

The goal here is to create a piece of artwork featuring something relating to Chaos Dwarfs and the sea, river or ships. This can be done by drawing, sketching or painting it (i.e. no miniature entries). Digital tools are allowed, and some scribblings as seen on many concept sketches are likewise allowed, but please keep any text amount low. The amount of work invested in the art entry can vary from a simple sketch up to a full-blown illustration.

Grab the opportunity to present us your take(s) on Dawi Zharr or Hobgoblins on the high seas! Your entry could be a sketch, a technical/architectural schematic or an illustration. You could depict a sailor; a slavedriver whipping slaves to shovel coal below decks; a harbour; a drowning Chaos Dwarf; a submersible vessel; coastal fortifications; pirate scenes; a naval battle; boarding action; Chaos Dwarf warship classes or other vessels; coal barges steaming down River Ruin; oceanic platforms; scenes from Dawi Zharr myths connected to the sea; a convoy steaming through a dark naval tunnel; a Chaos Dwarf flotilla attacked by sea monsters; or something else entirely.


The Gold winner will take home a Dwarves of the Dark Bell Tower Bazooka Team kit, sculpted by Fuggit Khan!

The Silver winner will receive an unpainted Marrog Blackhand from Titan Wargames, courtesy of Baggronor!

The Bronze winner will get a kit of 7 Dwarves of the Dark Bell Tower Big Hats, sculpted by Fuggit Khan!

While a random entrant will claim a 15mm Tjubling Thunderhammer Rocket!

Also, another random entrant will win an unpainted onion hat axeman, donated by Zanthrax!

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 January 19th 2019 at 11:59pm EST. (eight weeks!)

Rules of the Competition

Each member may only enter once.

Sketch, draw, paint and use digital tools to come up with an artwork or concept image having to do with Chaos Dwarfs, Hobgoblins and the sea, rivercraft or ships.

Submissions should include one picture file only. Your one picture with art may contain any number of objects, figures and scenes.

You may not submit a picture of a drawing or painting 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 one link or image 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.

How will this be judged?

Sometime after January the 19th we will post all entries to a new thread and voting can commence!

Good luck everyone!
The Staff
