Artisan's Contest XXIII: Watchtower Artwork Challenge

"It's toppling! Run for it!"




We had a whole bunch of excellent entries this time around, spanning walking Chaos Dwarf towers, through never-before seen steel structures, to IKEA-style assembly instructions for mobile Hobgoblin watchtowers and multi-level constructs complete with a Daemonic bull gate. The creativity on show in this round of contest is impressive. Well done, everyone!

And that's it for this round of Artisan's Contest, folks. Now let's see the participants' entries in the blogs and in this compilation thread. Wink

Next up, a sporty Golden Hat!

Congrats to all, very worthy winners. The whole lot were so good I really could have seen any of them winning

Congrats again Cheers!
Who knew Fuggit Khan didn't yet have a bronze AC medal? Well, that slot is plugged in now. Big Grin

Great work everyone! Splendid turnout.

The funny thing for me here is that when I first saw all the entries, I relaxed with a smile and thought: Ah, better and worthier designs than mine, and some in colour. Mine isn't even 3D, so no chance of winning there. (I prefer not to take up medal space in competitions I run.) Then the voting turned out a surprise.

Ah well, thank you everyone! And more importantly, we've collectively carved out a range of different Chaos Dwarf and Hobgoblin watchtower designs. I'm impressed by a lot of what everyone came up with. Great job all of you who managed to enter!
Congrats to the winners.
Congratulations to the winners! Takes Hat off
Not all of my votes made it in the top3 this time, but this is a matter of the great variety of the entries and tastes!

I did Happy


I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed the concept you created. A mobile hobgoblin watchtower is simply a brilliant idea. I am inclined to revisit it myself, eventually Big Grin

It was an honour to participate on this contest, eagerly looking forward for more Happy

Well done everybody. Loved the concept and entries. However there is a special place in myheart for the prefab IKEA tower.


I think you’ll find it’s IKHARN Tongue Wink

Well done to everyone, plenty of great designs here!
Congrats to everyone Takes Hat off
And while I'm happy to have won a medal, I'm even more feeling a bit in disbelief (because of some superb competition)  Shock
Thanks to everyone who voted for me.
And Hoodedman! I just absolutely (pineapple) *@$#! love your entry! So damn cool, I  love everything about it (and I have to admit that I'm a little bit jealous that I didn't think up such a great piece of art as you did) .
I especially love the CD on the watch lookout, but oblivious to the sneaky git coming from behind  <3
So I would respectfully like to donate the prize that I won from Zanko to you. You deserve it (plus it has a very nice MM90 look to it).
And Admiral, your entry was the only one that I knew who made it. Your attention to detail and cool visual style gave you away  Tongue Wink
And finally, Mr Jackswift, what did you use to make your outstanding artwork? Inks? Oils? It's really stunning!

Anyways, thanks again  Cheers!
Congrats! Superb wrok... Takes Hat off

You had me thinking about this concept for a while, great idea! Might have to try a 15mm model of it some day. Happy

Congratulations to all the entrants.  Loved them

That was really a great contest, you`re absolutely right. If you really don`t need your prize I`d gladly accept that, I can use the wizard for my Mordheim Warband. Thank you!
I didn`t really think of who made the entries but was definitely wrong about yours. I thought you made another entry Happy. One of my votes was for your drawing, I liked the innovative design. Altogether it was unbelievable difficult for me to find my three votes. Hope this will be so difficult again next time.

Thank you sir, much appreciated! The Wandering Tower' is wax pencil 'Prismacolor' on Canson paper (basically think textured high quality construction paper designed to capture the color and give some added depth).  I'll post it up on the artwork page in the next couple days with initial sketches, a detail shot, and some fluff.  Really struggled to get a decent shot and lost alot of the detail.

Have to agree re the Hoodedman's piece.  Love the sheaky git!
Cheers!  JR
