Golden Hat XXVII - Winners! - Admiral - 07-09-2017 02:29 AM
Abecedar & Titan Wargames Presents: The winners of the 27th Golden Hat competition!
A nailbiter of a voting has finished. We had a soaring turnout of entries, with submissions spanning from Daemon blimps and steam flyers, to flying sailing ships and giant zeppelins. It was splendid to see all these airships take to the skies!
Well done, folks.
And the winners are:
[attachment=5380]<1 [attachment=5381]<2 [attachment=5382]<3
1st Place - Golden Hat Winner: Entry #1 - Grimstonefire
2nd Place - Silver Hat Winner: Entry #3 - Pappa Midnight
3rd Place - Bronze Hat Winner: Entry #6 - Will Liam
And an honourable mention to Abecedar, who trailed the bronze winner valiantly. Also, a special mention of honour goes to Pappa Midnight, who edited Grimstonefire's originally washed-out pictures for clarity, to give entry #1 a sporting chance.
The entry key!

Congrats to the worthy winners!
RE: Golden Hat XXVII - Winners! - Abecedar - 07-09-2017 06:41 AM
Well done all, congradulations. I loved the ones that placed.
And I got to build something I wanted but couldn't get into the manufacturing que.
So there's still a bit of work to finish it up to what I envisaged.
Hint Hint.. I still need a Skullcracker and a tunneller
RE: Golden Hat XXVII - Winners! - Pappa Midnight - 07-09-2017 06:43 AM
Thanks to all who voted for me, the other entrants and to the moderators!

Congrats to everyone!! Fantastic effort all around.
RE: Golden Hat XXVII - Winners! - Skink - 07-09-2017 01:17 PM
Awesome! Well deserved wins guys! Those models are astounding!
RE: Golden Hat XXVII - Winners! - Abecedar - 07-09-2017 10:31 PM
I'd love to know (in this thread) what the models you all used are.
Mines pretty obvious. Cardboard, superglue, flyscreen, superglue, scrap bits of junk, more superglue, a couple empire guns and FW Fireglaive models for crew.
It will be a while before I get any other photos up due to th FN Photobucket debacle.
RE: Golden Hat XXVII - Winners! - Will Liam - 07-09-2017 11:32 PM
I have some pics of my build - do I put them up on this page?
RE: Golden Hat XXVII - Winners! - Willmark - 07-09-2017 11:58 PM
Great stuff and congrats Grim.

All 3 top tiers could easily have been first placed, really cool models and great to behold.
RE: Golden Hat XXVII - Winners! - Parish - 07-10-2017 02:44 PM
awesome stuff guys, well done everybody
RE: Golden Hat XXVII - Winners! - Grimstonefire - 07-11-2017 03:45 PM
Wow! I won. A great return for me, I think this is my first golden hat since 2011 possibly! It's a very long time anyways.
Thanks to Admiral for doing all the work behind the scenes, and for Abecedar for his very kind offer here. Sadly I have a very long list of things to paint, and the ass cannon doesn't really fit in with my army aesthetic (great model though it is). So I would kindly like to offer this to my fellow medalists, or failing that to whoever scored 4th place.
I would also like to add that my model is for sale if anyone wants it.
It was great fun doing it, and I am so tempted to do the biggest of the airships complete with tentacles out the front... But I also have many, many other models I'd like to buy.
It wasn't the best photos I took for it, but I realised you can't see the mouth very clearly on the lower part of the ship. I'll take some better photos when possible. The ship is called the Hrakenfel, which I planned to be part of the Black Kraken fleet (in honour of the Dreadfleet ship) fluff wise.
RE: Golden Hat XXVII - Winners! - Will Liam - 07-12-2017 01:21 AM
Wow Grim if Pappa Midnight does not want the cannon i would love to have it - I have an ass cannon body without crew, balls or the base so it would help me out a lot - and i would be happy to pay postage if someone wants the crew-less ball-less base-less leftover ass cannon monster - i understand if you dont want to split the model because i have a hard time doing that to sets myself but If you are happy with splitting it i will gladly take it providing Pappa Midnight does not want it cheers

Do we normally post the rankings for the remainder of the entries?
RE: Golden Hat XXVII - Winners! - Admiral - 07-12-2017 06:35 AM
No, but anyone is free to ask via PM and he shall receive his ranking.
RE: Golden Hat XXVII - Winners! - Fuggit Khan - 07-13-2017 03:45 AM
Congratulations to the winners
Although all entries are wonderful in their own right, I'm still surprised that only one of my votes won a medal. Oh well, Da Khan needs to send some "messengers" skulking in the darkness of night to deliver a proper Hobgoblin "handshake" (with a rusty knife)
Well done gentlemen
RE: Golden Hat XXVII - Winners! - Grimbold Blackhammer - 07-13-2017 08:50 AM
There were some pretty darn nice entries! Good job folks!!
RE: Golden Hat XXVII - Winners! - Grimstonefire - 07-13-2017 03:27 PM
I'm more than happy to donate my prize to you Will-Liam, but only on the condition you paint it up and take loads of photos!
If you want to give Abecedar a message and he can sort it all out.
RE: Golden Hat XXVII - Winners! - Admiral - 07-13-2017 04:50 PM
A-ha! You are slipping, Will. Now you truly are using non-GW models. We got to you at last.
RE: Golden Hat XXVII - Winners! - Will Liam - 07-14-2017 03:55 AM
ahhhh you have now got me second guessing my self now Admiral haha - but its such a cool mini set and would look great painted next to my CDs (and I will take lots of pics for you Grim) Also another non-GW thing i would make an exception for is those slave orc heads that you sculpted - are you molding them yet and do the have a price - I get a bit lost on this site so if you have them for sale somewhere point me in the right direction
RE: Golden Hat XXVII - Winners! - Admiral - 07-14-2017 04:08 AM
Yep, the heads are sent to casters. Czech CMM, so cheap and but will take its pretty time. The prototype Orc slave body turned up with some anatomical flaws (it mainly looked like it lacked strength and tension despite bulging muscles, actually flayed one in the prototype instance), which was to be expected but not what I needed at the time. I'll return to the slave Orcs proper down the road, but not very soon. Need to practice in some areas first. But in the meantime the heads will become available separately. Will shout when they go for sale.
RE: Golden Hat XXVII - Winners! - Will Liam - 07-14-2017 04:36 AM
great - the heads put such a dark morbid look on the orcs - i think it raise the bar on the chaos dwarfs as the sadistic evil army they should be - looking forward to buy some in the future from you - cheers
