Artisan's Contest XXIX - Admiral - 11-23-2019 03:55 PM


Madness. Madness has entered the world. It was seen emerging on claws and cloven hooves out of Daemonic pits or chanting out of crazed Temple chambers. Nay! It was seen creeping out of mutant lairs and insane men's cages. Nay! It was seen charging down the steps, sweeping all before it. Nay! It was seen dropping out of a portal rift in the fabric of reality, roaring its hellscream and turning marrow to ice. Nay! It was seen drenched in blood, chest heaving under heavy breath, searching for its next prey; for truly it had already slaughtered all in its path...

"Nyahahahaha!"






Zanko Presents: Artisan's Contest XXIX!

Disciples of Lugar: Chaos Dwarf Berzerkers Artwork Challenge


As some of you may be familiar with, there is a new Infernal Dwarf unit in their Ninth Age army list. Like so much else in this emerging setting, nothing is known about their background until the full army book gets released (we're next in line). They are called Disciples of Lugar, and all rules point toward them being Daemonically possessed religious fanatics on fire: They are found in the army list category "Bound and Binders" alongside Kadim fire Daemons and Infernal Egnines; they burn every foe they touch just like Kadim fire Daemons do (and K'daai in Warhammer) thanks to their rule Volcanic Embrace; they sport Frenzy and unbreakable; and they are protected by a Daemonic Aegis (Ward) save which is much stronger against flaming attacks directed toward them.

We would like to recognize this new concept for our Infernal Dwarves by throwing an art contest where all kinds of Chaos Dwarf berzerkers are welcome to join the fray!

The goal here is to create a piece of artwork featuring Chaos Dwarf berzerkers in some way. This can be done by drawing, sketching or painting it (i.e. no miniature entries). Digital tools are allowed, and some scribblings as seen on many concept sketches are likewise allowed, but please keep any text amount low. The amount of work invested in the art entry can vary from a simple sketch up to a full-blown illustration.

Grab the opportunity to present us your own take(s) on Dawi Zharr berzerkers! Here are some examples of previous Chaos Dwarf berzerker concepts for your inspiration. All styles and designs are naturally welcome, and remember that nothing is too crazy for our Chaos Dwarfs. The sky is the limit!

Prizes

The Gold winner will take home this fully painted plague circus, donated by Zanko!


The Silver winner will receive an unpainted Enslaved Elf of Ancient Times!


The Bronze winner will get an unpainted kit of Tjubling Fireguard Command, sculpted by tjub!


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

Deadline

The deadline for the submission of entries is February 9th 2020 at 11:59pm EST. (eight weeks!)

Rules of the Competition

Each member may only enter once.

Sketch, draw, paint and use digital tools to come up with an artwork or concept image having to do with Chaos Dwarf berzerkers.

Submissions should include one picture file only. Your one picture with art may contain any number of objects, figures and scenes.

You may not submit a picture of a drawing or painting that have been entered into other online competitions or posted in a finished state before.

Don't post your entries in the forum before the contest is over.

See also the General Rules & Guidelines.

How to Enter?

Submit your entry by sending a PM to Staff (a special user that all Staff have access to) with one link or image of your entry. Please do not send an e-mail to any of the admin or staff accounts as this is a sure fire way to have your entry missed.

How will this be judged?

Sometime after January the 18th we will post all entries to a new thread and voting can commence!

Good luck everyone!
The Staff

Ooooh Great.
Its me other bestus thing I iz real good at doing.


RE: Artisan's Contest XXIX - Reaver of Uzkulak - 11-26-2019 03:46 PM

Interesting theme, nothing jumps to mind immediately, will have to do some thinking to pull something from the nebulous storm of ideas. Evil idea


RE: Artisan's Contest XXIX - Admiral - 11-30-2019 09:10 PM

Looking forward to see what you come up with. Happy

RE: Artisan's Contest XXIX - Admiral - 12-19-2019 11:17 AM

Bump!


RE: Artisan's Contest XXIX - Abecedar - 12-23-2019 05:34 AM

Absolutely no joy for me so far.  I have a lovely new toy.  No not a pencil sharpener but
a graphics tablet.  But I don't have a clue what to do now.
Apparently I need a program for the computer, but which one?

Anyone have any hints?


RE: Artisan's Contest XXIX - Admiral - 12-28-2019 12:32 PM

I'm too primitive to be of any help, I'm afraid! Perhaps some tech forum could help you out?


RE: Artisan's Contest XXIX - Reaver of Uzkulak - 01-05-2020 08:20 PM

Certainly neglected this over the holidays. Finally had some time to sit down and marinate a few ideas today. Hoping everyone's forges are stoked for 2020! Big Grin


RE: Artisan's Contest XXIX - Admiral - 01-13-2020 08:16 PM

My forge is stoked, but the blacksmith just got sick, I'm afraid. Sick

Deadline moved to 24th of January, which might be prolonged a bit more if Nurgle prove stubborn. Don't be shy of asking for some extra days if you would need it for your entry; it might suit me fine anyway, if it turns out I need more rest to recover properly.

Anyhow, looking forward to see what everyone cooks up! Happy

Sorry to hear that, Grandpappy Nurgle does tend to lay siege this time of year.. dead Get well soon.


RE: Artisan's Contest XXIX - Admiral - 01-22-2020 01:35 PM

Thanks, Reaver! It is indeed that time of the year.

Need to rest and recuperate, so deadline is now 9th of February. Make the most of it, folks. Happy


RE: Artisan's Contest XXIX - Abecedar - 01-23-2020 03:13 AM

Still no joy at all for me on making anything for an entry.  Just way tooo much bad shit happening here these past months.
Will be the first one I've missed for years.

We are living in our own little slice of the Dark Lands at the moment as the bush fires have hit the streets on the western edge of my town.
They jumped the 100 yd wide river at that point to do it.  Constant sirens from the poor old fire fighters.
Smoke so thick its not nice to breath at all.  Blood Red sun when the smoke clears enough so you can see it.
We've been warned not to go swimming as the rivers and ocean are polluted from all the ash and debris.
Yep sounds like the Dark Lands
At least we still have power at the moment, not like a few weeks ago.


RE: Artisan's Contest XXIX - Admiral - 01-23-2020 07:47 AM

Ouch, you truly have been marked out by Hashut Down Under. Shock

Please stay safe in the mad heat, and take care of each other.


RE: Artisan's Contest XXIX - Abecedar - 01-24-2020 06:49 PM

Yeah, really sux.  Our "Moruya Marauders" Clubhouse (was in a members business shed), was destroyed.  
We're more upset about the loss of Sam's business.
I lost a few pieces of terrain but no models, though I haven't seen anyone else to find out if they've lost anything.
And my local Archery club, set in bushland, was burnt out.


RE: Artisan's Contest XXIX - Uther the unhinged - 01-25-2020 03:44 AM

Take care and stay safe down there
