Subject: Chaos Dwarf Open Competition.
Bases: Up to your discretion.
The Due Date: 11:59 PM July 11th, 2018 UTC (Central European Time Zone)

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

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 approximately 6 weeks to complete entries). If for some reason you are having trouble with your submission, contact Admiral. 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 (when it gets updated).
- Receive the Golden Hat medal for your online persona.
- 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 paints, Rackham Dwarves, Tjublings, a Pyro Stick mini or a choice 3D-printed item! See above 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.

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

Good luck everyone!
This may be the most prize-filled Golden Hat up to date (not counting models total, but prize donations). Carcearion has thrown his hat into the ring as well, see above!

Also, plinths and display bases allowed. Thanks to Clam for pointing out the inconsistency of having an open theme but limiting in these areas.

Ooooh Open subject. How odd can I go?

There are a few half finished projects that could be cobbled together.
Come Igor we have work to do!

Well, no one has ever built a lifesize Chaos Dwarf before... Tongue

Hmm... Well I have this model I have been looking for an excuse to paint.  Needs a bit of conversion work first though...
Lol.  I'll try to explain. Unlike some, the painting part of the hobby very much comes second or fourth for me... well behind conversion, kit bashing and scratch-building which I love to do.  I struggle to sit down and paint, especially base coats and block colors.  It's really only the last 10 percent of fine detail work that I really enjoy.  Second, I work way better and actually finish things far more often when I have a deadline that I am working toward that forces me to get in gear and get the work done.

Soooo... if I have a great model (one of many, many models, but tiny space ships, sci fi troops, and Zentraedi battlepods don't exactly fit this contest theme) that has been languishing in it's box.  The contest gives me a much needed push to get it done.  Cheers!
Ideas falling into place? Happy
Ouch! Best recovery, Abecedar. For a moment I thought it was the work of your bloodthirsty hobby knife.
I finally found an idea, I'm still in building phase. Not sure to finish in time due to my slow painting skill.
Haven't had a chance to start.  Just got back from a 9 day camping trip with the family.  Perhaps I will now have time to turn to it.  I'll get something in even if it ends up plan C or D.

Abecedar, hope your recovery is smooth and quick!

Clean up mold lines
Find more mold lines
find your fingerprint in the dried greenstuff

Best of luck, lads. I'll be busy something silly for a couple of weeks and it's not unlikely that the deadline might get extended a couple of days or so if I cannot at all find the spare time.

You could go ahead and extend it now to be a nice boy

Ok, I need to do so on this front as well. Too much work too little time. Deadline extended to 9th of July. Can't edit first post on phone. Please keep stress low, kind regards
Great news !
I almost had to dedicate these ones to Nurgle.  Have had a massive head cold for a week and I'm sure they're embedded with germs now.

Thanks for the extension.  Will try to get the pics done today.
Nice.  Any chance you can extend it another three weeks or so? dead

Never got anywhere near the model I wanted to work on.  To little hobby time of late.  I've played exactly one wargame in the last 6 months.  Did just finish a repaint and rebuild a 15 year old bicycle though... Not really topic appropriate for Golden Hat though.

Maybe I can pull something out in 3 days... We shall see.
OK, unexpected hiccup of lots of job early the coming week. Won't have time to fix entries by monday/tuesday, and need to clear other backlog in weekend.

Deadline set to 11th of July, should be the last push forward. Best of luck and make the most of it. Happy
God job, folks! Deadline closing, last chance to enter.
Any last minute stragglers, hop on board!
I've hopped.
Didn't cut or stab myself once and I didn't glue my fingers together but I did lack fingerprints for a couple of days
