"Cry havoc and let slip the rules of war!"

Titan Wargames, Zanko &  AtomTaylor Presents: Artisan's Contest XXVIII!

Warcry: Chaos Dwarf Skirmish Warband Rules

The goal here is to write rules for a Chaos Dwarf skirmish warband! This contest is launched in recognition of Warcry, the new skirmish game from Games Workshop, set in Age of Sigmar's Eigthpoints, a place where small warbands converge from all over the realms of creation to seek the favour of Chaos, get a good scrap, or try and torpedo the Chaotic proceedings. Warcry is small in scale and designed to be fast-paced, generally played out on small battlefields with lots of scenery.

Chaos Dwarfs were never gifted a set of Warcry warband rules, and so we'll take matters into our own hands, yet again! (There is however a new Twisted Duardin miniature, part of the Iron Golems warband; but this contest is about proper Chaos Dwarf warbands.) This is your chance to put your mark on the Dawi Zharr heavens.

Some of you may recognize a  somewhat familiar theme here, as was found in the Path to Glory Chaos Warband rules. It goes without saying that this contest is open to ALL wargame systems and settings out there, including your very own homebrew if you are so inclined. So this is your chance to create Chaos Dwarf skirmish warband rules for Mantic's Vanguard, WHFB skirmish or Mordheim (including the unofficial fan rules pack Ninthheim), Frostgrave, Lord of the Rings or whatever you feel like.

Layout, maps, background/story text and visuals such as illustrations and photos are entirely up to you yourself to craft and decide. Just make sure you ask other artists and hobbyists for permission first if you wish to use their images (please keep such correspondence in private messages or E-mail rather than in public posts, in order to not spoil the surprise). We all would like to have beautiful rule packages to read through, so unleash all you've got if you'd like to!

Just avoid to use any official artwork and photos from companies such as Games Workshop, Forgeworld and Mantic.

Ideally, we would like to have your entries received in both PDF and images format (no upper limit on number of pages/images), but either of those will suffice. You can also enter your entry as simple text in CDO PM. We will make sure everyone can access all the entries as images in the end. Please do not send your entry as an MS Word document, though (the contest organizer do not own that program).

The CDO Staff won't be picky with what entries are accepted. Instead we expect voters to reward those entries which play to the spirit of the contest theme, as is usually the case.

Still, if you are unsure whether your entry will meet the requirements please PM Admiral.


Zanko will reward the gold winner with this Forgeworld Daemonsmith:

While the silver winner will carry home an unpainted Chaos Dwarf boss kit, courtesy of AtomTaylor at OldHammer Miniatures and Wargaming:

Baggronor at Titan Wargames will in his turn give the bronze winner an unpainted miniature of Cinneron Dhum, Dwarf Pyromancer:

And finally, one lucky entrant not in top 3 will claim the random draw prize of a 15mm kit of four Flora & Fauna Bonestingers, 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.


The deadline for the submission of entries is the 31st of October 2019 at 11:59pm EST.

Rules of the Competition

Each member may only enter once.

Write Chaos Dwarf skirmish warband rules. Whatever setting and system you feel you feel like. No contest rules limits on number of pages, illustrations, layout, text and photography.

Submissions can be entered as a text message, images or a PDF document.

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 your entry (as text, image files and/or a PDF document). You can also send your entry to chaosdwarfsonline ( at ) no later than the due date, but be sure to write out your forum name in the E-mail if doing so.

How will this be judged?

Sometime after the due date we will post all entries to a new thread and voting can commence!

Good luck everyone!
