Very nice task. Cheers!

We haven't had a CD unit to paint for a long time, if I remember correctly.

I will probably, contrary to my own assumption, still paint an infantry unit. Wink

RE: Golden Hat XXXII - tjub - 02-02-2019 06:26 AM

Great, a theme that should fit most of us! Happy


RE: Golden Hat XXXII - Admiral - 02-02-2019 09:52 AM

Cheers folks!

Besides, would some kind souls kindly share this announcement on Age of Sig Zharr and KoW Abyssal Dwarf Facebook groups if there are any? Having the community spread out isn't that big of a problem if we still keep in contact between the sites and Facebook groups, and gather for competitions and suchlike online community events.

I once registered on Age of Sig Zharr, but got blocked for some unfathomable reason and no response yet. Sad


RE: Golden Hat XXXII - Bolg - 02-02-2019 10:03 AM

Oh nice.. I still have some sculpts I made way back that needed a purpose. this will be a great opportunity to finish them and slap on some paint (:


RE: Golden Hat XXXII - skutche - 02-03-2019 03:52 AM

Nice, I wanted to build a CD army anyways, I guess this is the right motivation to get me started Happy

Jupp, Im on it. Covered the Warmaster and Dragon Rampant groups on FB as well, might be someone there who find it interesting. Happy

Tack tjub! Happy


RE: Golden Hat XXXII - Reaver of Uzkulak - 02-03-2019 03:36 PM

Can't wait to see what everyone enters! Really hope to get something done in time. Pirate


RE: Golden Hat XXXII - Jackswift - 02-03-2019 05:21 PM

Definitely in on this one.  Not 100 percent on exactly what I will enter.  

Should we assume this should specifically be a standard "warrior" type model or unit; versus some other type of related unit that are technically warriors but would count as something else for purposes of gameplay (ie bull centaurs, etc.), or is any type of warrior acceptable?


RE: Golden Hat XXXII - Admiral - 02-03-2019 07:22 PM

It's originally intended as meaning footsoldiers (incl. elite units, berzerkers and so on bearded infantry), but good point there!

Let's open it up to bull/boar/other centaurs, Chaos Dwarf cavalry, helicopter hats/flying infantry, mechanical leg (st)riders, weird mutants and other freaks that people interpret as Dawi Zharr warriors.

Good intentions to micromanage rules in detail for sake of fairness & even playing field tend to result in needless restrictions that at the end of the day just limits creativity, when all we're after is a fun community hobbying event. Creativity and thinking outside the box are always at risk from rules strictures, and we want to encourage creativity. Let's keep it open and see what people cook up. Happy


RE: Golden Hat XXXII - Uther the unhinged - 02-04-2019 05:46 AM

AhHa! Hashut requires warriors of ANY sort! Igor, to the laboratory. I have some needlessly painful experiments to perform!


RE: Golden Hat XXXII - Admiral - 02-04-2019 06:42 AM

Oh my.

Viewer discretion is adviced. Tongue


RE: Golden Hat XXXII - dancingyakminiatures - 02-04-2019 07:39 PM

finish up one now . gonna try to get some of my stuff painted up by then also but count me in for at least on entry


RE: Golden Hat XXXII - Admiral - 02-04-2019 09:52 PM

Nice! Good going.


RE: Golden Hat XXXII - Grimbold Blackhammer - 02-05-2019 08:01 PM

Love it!


RE: Golden Hat XXXII - Gargolock - 02-10-2019 09:22 PM

Bit of a strategy questions here, what is best for warriors? Great weapons or shields? I have no clue whether to re-roll saves of 1 or subtract 1 from enemy saves. I will need to decide eventually as the weapon is seemingly a crucial part of a warrior.

Talkings AoS I assume? Guess it depends of what you are facing and the rest of your army. I play Nurgle Demons for AoS, and against say Stormcast I feel like I miss rend for the attacks. Most damage is by mortal wounds of course, but when you go up against say 3+ rerolling 1, its nice to have some rend.

So go for a unit of each? When facing Beastmen or Nighthaunt you'd much rather have the defense than rend. Takes Hat off


RE: Golden Hat XXXII - Admiral - 02-13-2019 10:37 AM

It's much the same in other systems: Damage or shielding, what's best depends on the opposition. Happy


RE: Golden Hat XXXII - Admiral - 02-21-2019 05:31 AM

Going well, folks? Happy

Still lots of converting to do. Happy this theme has pushed me to make a lot of progress even if I don't finish on time. It'll be great to see what a variety of entries this pulls in. Really hoping to be a part of that. Pirate


RE: Golden Hat XXXII - Abecedar - 02-21-2019 11:54 PM

I have finally have dragged my feet up out of the rut and found something I want to paint.


RE: Golden Hat XXXII - Gargolock - 02-22-2019 12:08 AM

finished converting and assembling mine only to realize I was out of primer, minor setback but I am doing well. Should be done on time. Excited to see what everyone else is gonna do.

The Admiral
Moderator of Hashut
(All tremble at his name)

Zharr Naggrond

Dear Admiral,
     Thank you for your recent letter. With reference to your query about the progress of project “Warrior”, I regret to inform you there has been some slippage in the proposed time scale. This has clearly raised some serious questions for the project manager, Igor Igorson. I have of course put Igor to these questions. This was a full and frank discussion and I feel the answers are probably best expressed in his own words:

“No.No. Please No.
The forge broke down
We could’nt get the parts.
There was a fire.
An earthquake.
A plague of Locusts.
A terrible flood.
I swear to Hashut it wasn’t my fault!
Please put that down!”

     Igor’s response have led me to carry out a root and branch review of our production systems. The reccomemdations of this review have been fully implemented. Therefore from today I willl be taken a personal role in the oversight of the project. The previous management team has been dismembered and replaced. I have installed a new and enthusiastic project manager, Igor Igorspawn (no relation).
     These changes are fully expected to result in the project meeting our new demanding deadlines.
     I hope this answers any queries or concerns you may have had.

Your Humble Servant

Uther the Unhinged
Sorceror Prophet of Hashut (all tremble at his name)


RE: Golden Hat XXXII - Admiral - 02-22-2019 06:00 AM

Ahahahaha! Artfully written, Uther. Poor Igor! Big Grin

May I suggest you include this mighty fine letter in your project log after the contest is over and you share your entry? It deserves some spread. Takes Hat off


RE: Golden Hat XXXII - TheHoodedMan - 03-03-2019 12:00 PM

Ha. This time I'll be in. My entry is nearly finished!


RE: Golden Hat XXXII - Abecedar - 03-04-2019 06:37 AM

Still going but having a small hiatus whilst on holidays and I wasn't allowed to bring any hobby stuff.

Wasn't too bad.  Had some beers with a best mate,  walked around for hours in beach-side bush picking up other peoples rubbish for our annual "Clean up australia day", had some nice meals out (and one shit one), got my compound bow adjusted to fit me better.

If my wife was scared of me hurting myself - it wouldn't be the hobby. its about the safest thing I do.


RE: Golden Hat XXXII - Vantraxx the Thrice Cursed - 03-11-2019 10:39 AM

I'll probably go overtime but dammit i am trying!


RE: Golden Hat XXXII - TheHoodedMan - 03-18-2019 02:57 AM

There are still a few days to complete an entry, folks Takes Hat off.


RE: Golden Hat XXXII - Abecedar - 03-18-2019 03:53 AM

Don't worry. Still working on it, so last place is still sown up


RE: Golden Hat XXXII - Uther the unhinged - 03-18-2019 05:04 AM

@Abecedar Not so fast in claiming that coveted last place Sir! Igor informs me that the warriors have been recruited and training is complete. They are now fully equipped as per my detailed instructions and await only my artistic  input as regards final ornamentation and regalia (sadly Igors though essential do lack any artistic flair).

Great going, folks! I came down stomach sick today. Sacrificing to Nurgle or Poseidon, so to say. Sick

Back home at least, but please expect things to move slowly on this end during the coming days. Will get there, just not quickly.

Cheers

Abecedar, have you forgotten to update your track record? Or have you really stayed safe so long? Big Grin

Also,  being sick I wasn't much up to checking closely on background in the images. My fault if anything is awry. I've been thinking about opening up for some scenic background as a test, so we can discuss experimental changes after the contest if you like.

But voting thread will be up tomorrow nevertheless.

Well I did have a gluing accident last week but only a fingernail got glued down to its own finger, So that technically isn't gluing my fingers together.
As for bleeding for my hobby, I haven't slipped with a scalpel lately, not decently at any rate.  And I've stopped counting minor pin (or drill) picks that only draw a wee bit of blood.  Serious Ouchies only
