Golden Hat #8 - Winners Announced! - Grimstonefire - 03-16-2009 05:59 PM

For those living miles away from the nearest phone point the last couple of months we had a competition to create a warmachine.  This was Golden Hat 8, the regular competitions that our members have to test their skills against each other.

The voting has now closed and I can finally announce the winners

(added suspense...) and a drumroll...

1st Place and Golden Hat Winner:  Ishkur Cinderhat with his awesome bull like warmachine thing


2nd Place and Silver Hat Winner:  Xander with his warmachine based on the one from Warhammer Online.


3rd Place and Bronze Hat Winner:  tjub with his hilarious death rocket team.


Congratulations to all the entrants, but especially to the top 3.  Ishkur has proven he’s up there at the pinnacle of competition by being the only person to hold two Golden Hat medals.  I’ll catch you up just you wait… Wink  I assume Xander will get in touch with details of your AoW mini soon.

Xander I know is really pleased to have won a medal for his painting, I know you put in a lot of time and effort with this.

Tjub It’s been a great few months for you, no doubt this will mean a lot to you.  I presume Xander will send you the Canadian WD supplement.

To all our contenders your minis will be shown in the CDO Hall of Fame and you will receive a number of slaves equal to the number of participants.  All the better for sending to each other in Slave week Wink

For those curious we had 168 votes in the final round, Ishkur secured 18%, Xander 15% and tjub 14%.

This has been the most successful Golden Hat by far, more entries than any other competition and certainly more voting (in both rounds).

A round of applause for everyone.  May the drinking and feasting last for a whole week!

Congrats to everyone and especially to the winners (i think that this was my top 3 so maybe congratulations to me as well?)

Fantastic modelling and painting and people really pushed the envelope in so many different ways - this can only be a good thing for the site and chaos dwarfs in general


RE: Golden Hat 8 - Winners Announced! - clam - 03-16-2009 06:19 PM

Yeah a big congrats to all the winners here Cheers! - best GH ever! May this set the standard for all future GHs Big Grin


RE: Golden Hat 8 - Winners Announced! - Swissdictator - 03-16-2009 06:25 PM

I think all my final three got it... nice.

Cheers! Ishkur! Nicely done sir!

Cheers! Xander, I really like how you brought a concept out of WAR into the game! Happy

Cheers! tjub This warmachine always puts a smile on my face. A wicked evil, but delighted, smile!

Congrats to all three! I love the work of all three of you.


RE: Golden Hat 8 - Winners Announced! - Border Reiver - 03-16-2009 06:41 PM

Well done all, especially to Ishkur - that bull is awesome!

Xander - nicely done

And to tjub - A wonderfully humerous look at rocket launching.


RE: Golden Hat 8 - Winners Announced! - Ishkur Cinderhat - 03-16-2009 07:17 PM

Whoa, I'll have to add a few centimeters to my hat to celebrate this occasion! Happy

Man, building the Shatterer Beast was one of the most rewarding things I did during the past months. I really enjoyed working on it for those weeks in January and February (or rather every now and then and on the weekends, mostly), so.. thanks CDO for this!! Cheers!

Congrats Xander, that's an impressive amount of firepower. ^^ And tjub hope you'll make many opponents laugh with this great model!

Now I am looking forward to seeing all those awesome entries in the individual blogs. With big pictures!


RE: Golden Hat 8 - Winners Announced! - Ubertechie - 03-16-2009 07:29 PM

Ishkur
Do you have a set of WIP photos / details on how you made the model - would certainly make a very interesting read


RE: Golden Hat 8 - Winners Announced! - GRNDL - 03-16-2009 08:04 PM

Bah!!

/shakes fist


RE: Golden Hat 8 - Winners Announced! - Willmark - 03-16-2009 09:29 PM

Damn impressive an awesome job all round!

Xander better get busy doling out the prizes, there is a veritable dwarf hoard there.


RE: Golden Hat 8 - Winners Announced! - wallacer - 03-16-2009 10:24 PM

An amazingly high calibre of entries in the comp this year.  Congrats to all who placed.  I am in awe of your talent.


RE: Golden Hat 8 - Winners Announced! - Xander - 03-16-2009 11:47 PM

The prizes, as explain in the prize thread work this way:

The winner, Ishkur, gets to choose which of the 3 prizes he wants.  The remaining two are raffled off.  Another person volunteered an AoW model.  So we might be able to get one for Tjub too. I will contact the donor.  The raffles will be random, and I will determine the winners in a couple days!

Thanks for all your votes! Happy  You can expect a LOT of WIP pics.  I took MANY of them.

SWEET! It looks like it took a lot of work Xander, so I'm looking forward to seeing them and perhaps sneaking off with a few ideas of how to make conversions easier!


RE: Golden Hat 8 - Winners Announced! - tjub - 03-17-2009 01:51 AM

Great contest over all!
