RE: Golden Hat XXX - Abecedar - 05-25-2018 08:56 PM

This could be a huge GH.
I don't know what to do.  .. Panic


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Carcearion - 05-25-2018 10:30 PM

Holy Hashut!!! An open subject Golden Hat!? Shock

We have lots of time to work on the entries as well!

@Abecedar I feel like your right about this one being huge. I think this will be the fiercest Golden Hat that has been held in my time, hats are gonna fly!


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Admiral - 05-26-2018 02:04 AM

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.


RE: Golden Hat XXX - tjub - 05-26-2018 03:00 AM

Should be able to enter this I hope, just need to finish a few projects first... err...


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Uther the unhinged - 05-26-2018 07:21 AM

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


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Uther the unhinged - 05-26-2018 07:39 AM

Lifesize chaos dwarfs are tricky. The kids complain that the beards are itchy, the girls whinge about the colour of the hats and no one wants to sit on the bulls head. Kids no dedication these days


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Zanko - 05-26-2018 10:22 AM

Oh man, it's all happening here! Shock

An open theme ... very interesting! After all, I already have a vague idea what kind of models I can send into the race! Cheers!

Let's see what will happen! Tongue Wink


                        Hashut!


RE: Golden Hat XXX - HPN - 05-26-2018 12:05 PM

Wow this is going to be a great one!  Good luck to everyone!


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Ghrask Dragh - 05-26-2018 06:03 PM

Wow, the big 3 0


Great choice of theme for this one Cheers!


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Xander - 05-26-2018 07:43 PM

Very exciting! Big Grin


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Jackswift - 05-26-2018 08:43 PM

Hmm... Well I have this model I have been looking for an excuse to paint.  Needs a bit of conversion work first though...


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Abecedar - 05-26-2018 09:13 PM

Okay. Things sound odd there Jack...  A Single model needing paint,  an excuse to paint.
They are terms I'm do not understand.
I'm a bit like a dog with two bones.  I don't know which to eat first


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Jackswift - 05-27-2018 03:45 PM

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!


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Uther the unhinged - 05-27-2018 04:15 PM

Yeah, I get it Jack. I dont enjoy the painting (any of it) and that is one of the reasons I am rubbish at it. Now the coversion is fun. I have lots of nearly finished or finished waiting paint figures then I get distracted by a new idea. Same with deadlines, my golem had been in my head for months just always pushed back for something else. I neeeeed deadlines. On the positive side I have lots of stuff to play with for the gh. Can not wait for the reveals

RE: Golden Hat XXX - Grimstonefire - 05-29-2018 02:27 AM

Hmmmm…...


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Strutsagget - 05-31-2018 02:41 PM

So fun Happy
I have no clue on what to do here Happy


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Zanko - 06-01-2018 11:46 AM

I think I have a quite cool idea, let's see how it can be implemented. An order at e-Bay has been placed. Wink


                         Hashut!


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Admiral - 06-10-2018 08:19 AM

Ideas falling into place? Happy

Nope, not at the moment. Im struggling to finish a Blood Bowl project in time for our new season. Might be able to squeeze out something Chaos Dwarf related after that. If not, atleast there will be more 15mm Tjublings coming soon.


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Abecedar - 06-10-2018 08:01 PM

Progress is slow but good. I got a bit of prep work done yesterday at a beautiful spot in Narooma NSW.
Work sent me down there for coverage so instead of sitting by myself in a cold station waiting for a call I went here.

Did some study so the employment part was taken care of.  4 hours of miserable australian winter weather with this view.
Pretty tough to handle some days, Jeez we have it hard down here. And yes that is people swimming
But I got some models cleaned up of mold lines etc on GH 30 option A.
Slow going though as holding anything tight for a period of time is difficult and painful.

Carpal Tunnel surgery, at least the stitches are out now but it doesn't look much better

I wish you a good recovery! Takes Hat off

For my part, I'm making halfway good progress, the preparations are done, now all I have to do is paint. Wink


                         Hashut!


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Admiral - 06-11-2018 12:56 PM

Ouch! Best recovery, Abecedar. For a moment I thought it was the work of your bloodthirsty hobby knife.


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Abecedar - 06-11-2018 06:59 PM

Thanks. I am making progress myself.  Am definitely being more careful with this one.
And I'm being even more careful with tools. I took a chunk out of a finger in February but that wasn't for hobby stuff so it didn't count


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Carcearion - 06-13-2018 05:41 PM

Assembly completed!

@Abecedar Ouch! I hope you are back up to 100% in all good time man!


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Dînadan - 06-13-2018 05:50 PM

Ouch, best wishes with your recovery.

As for weather; it doesn’t look all that bad - bet it’s better than those of us in Britain and Scandinavia get in our Winter. Tongue


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Will Liam - 06-14-2018 10:41 PM

Wow - hope you get better soon Abecedar - those stitches look nasty dude - My entry is in - had some trouble as each time I failed painting the eye the details in the miniatures became less and less so I hope they are close enough to where the eyes are supposed to be - other than that I’m happy with the end result Happy


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Abecedar - 06-15-2018 12:18 AM

Thanks everybody.  It only hurts if I use it.  The weather here has been gorgeous though it is getting a bit colder.

Will, you are always entering early if I remember right.

I try and get them done as quickly as I can otherwise I keep migrating back to whatever I’m working on and I tends to upset the warden/wife - l think she’s just jealous Wink


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Uther the unhinged - 06-16-2018 03:12 AM

Wait. People are finished! Ahh! I’ still at the emergency buying of more greenstuff stage!


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Zanko - 06-16-2018 03:44 AM

I think I'm halfway through the project but it will still take some time to complete ... Unsure


                        Hashut!


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Kamphre - 06-16-2018 06:01 AM

I finally found an idea, I'm still in building phase. Not sure to finish in time due to my slow painting skill.


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Zanko - 06-17-2018 12:32 PM

Damn, what I had planned looked built together looked really stupid. Mad

Now I have re-arranged and ordered new miniatures, I hope the Polish post is on time! Wink

Now we may be running out of time after all. Unsure


                        Hashut!


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Uther the unhinged - 06-17-2018 06:27 PM

Forced to buy stuff for this one. May have bitten off more than I can chew. But it advances and is suitably odd.

Same here and I've definitely made plans way too big for my britches again.  
Option A has been shelved and Option B is proving much more fiddly and tiring than I thought


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Jackswift - 06-18-2018 09:43 AM

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!


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Strutsagget - 06-22-2018 09:10 AM

I have an idea finally. But not sure I will finish it on time... Just bought last pieces in eBay and shipping Will probably take too long time. Sad

... is still waiting for his package from poland! Angry


                        Hashut!


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Uther the unhinged - 06-23-2018 02:14 PM

@Abecedar.  Fingerprints in greenstuff is realistic texture, isn’t it?

Oh dear. More magical male words of power may be needed on this project.


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Admiral - 06-27-2018 03:05 PM

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.


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Helblindi - 06-28-2018 01:19 AM

My entry's finished (although during photography, I remembered I wanted to do some more highlights) and not too soon either. Leaving for holiday on saturday, and it's busy times at the end of the schoolyear.
Best of luck to all!


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Uther the unhinged - 07-02-2018 05:04 PM

Aaaaaaaah. 4 days left. Where did all the time go? Blast last minute ‘great ideas and improvements’. Eat sleep paint repeat.[/u]

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


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Admiral - 07-03-2018 12:15 AM

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


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Kamphre - 07-03-2018 05:00 AM

Great news !


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Zanko - 07-03-2018 12:05 PM

Awesome to hear that the deadline changed! So I would be able to finish my 3rd attempt! Big Grin


                        Hashut!


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Uther the unhinged - 07-03-2018 12:37 PM

Good news on the deadline. Sadly not useful for me as I am away all weekend with the kids. But on a better note my magnum opus nears completion(well to my standards amyway). Hope to get it in soon. Good luck to the rest of you, may the mortal realms tremble at your approach.


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Uther the unhinged - 07-05-2018 04:37 PM

My entry is in now so I can relax (well act as kiddy chauffeur which is my proper job). Good luck to the rest. I hope it comes together for you


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Abecedar - 07-06-2018 06:59 PM

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.


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Jackswift - 07-07-2018 11:50 AM

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.


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Strutsagget - 07-07-2018 02:02 PM

I am still waiting for my last pieces to arrive before I can finish my idé Sad


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Admiral - 07-07-2018 04:17 PM

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


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Zanko - 07-10-2018 02:29 PM

The pics are send! Takes Hat off


                        Hashut!


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Admiral - 07-10-2018 04:41 PM

God job, folks! Deadline closing, last chance to enter.


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Admiral - 07-11-2018 05:11 PM

Any last minute stragglers, hop on board!


RE: Golden Hat XXX - Abecedar - 07-11-2018 07:33 PM

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
