Golden Hat XXNicodemus 10-03-2013



The Russian Alternative Presents: The 20th Golden Hat modeling and painting competition!

We are pleased to announce that this Golden Hat has been sponsored by The Russian Alternative!  They have offered up prizes for contestants placing 1st, 2nd and 3rd!

The Russian Alternative Wrote:
We are very happy to say that we would love to take part in this contest! We are prepared to provide sets of our Dwarves of Fire Canyon models (Dwarf+Unit+Command Group) for all three prize places!


That sounds awesome to me!  Each winner will receive a unit of Dwarfs of Fire Canyon, a command unit and the Dwarf of Fire Canyon hero - that's 14 of these fantastically sculpted multi-part metal models to each winner!! Did we also mention that our very own Rozmax is the sculptor? No?! Well more of his work can be found here.  Of course if you can't wait for the end of the contest to get your hands on some of these models you can always get a head start over at http://russian-alternative.ru/.



In addition, we'd like to have some random-draw giveaways so that any participant will have a chance to win a prize.  If you want to contribute a prize, you must be willing to pay for the shipping to send it to a fellow member.


Subject Matter
How powerful/amazing/frightening/inventive/fantastic Chaos Dwarfs are!

The challenge for Golden Hat #20 is to give your creativity and skills free reign while showing off just how cool Chaos Dwarfs can be! That's it. Think of the coolest thing(s) you can paint and go with it.  
(The only catch is that it must be a model or models and can't be an art painting or life-size cardboard fort in your living room that you've painted up and moved into for the duration of the competition.)

The entry an be anything you like.  It may be a single model of any size, it may be two models locked in a duel, it may be a unit, multiple units, one or more warmachines, a whole Chaos Dwarf outpost, city, shipyard, an entire army on a display board, anything - as long as it is painted.  Your entry need not be limited to a literal "Chaos Dwarf" piece either, and any reasonable 'slave' model(s) can be entered as well.  You can convert or model your own figure(s), or use any existing model(s) from any miniatures range. Just make sure it is fully painted and hasn't been shown in its completed state before (although WIP shots of any conversion or modeling work are welcome in the submission photos).


Basing
The choice is unrestricted this time, so you may choose to go with a diorama style, a plinth, or any other sort of base - or no base at all.

Please read the full rules that apply to the Golden Hat competition before submitting your entry.

When is the deadline?
We are going with the same deadline as previous Golden Hats; send all entries to the Golden Hat account no later 11:59 PM Nov 30th, 2013 EST (Eastern Standard Timezone). Entries will not be accepted after that date and time regardless of how cool your submission is. (You have around 8 weeks to complete your entry)

If for some reason you are having trouble with your submission, contact one of the Staff before the deadline. In order to avoid problems, we strongly advise entrants not wait until the very last minute to submit their entries... As things can and do go wrong at the last minute. Please do not send entries to individual Admin or Staff members to submit on your behalf as they may not check their PMs!

How to Enter
Upload up to 4 photos of your entries to the internet.  Next, send a PM to Golden Hat (a special user that all Staff have access to) containing the links where the pictures can be found. (Note: This is the same as previous Golden Hats).

If you win:
- Take your place in the Golden Hat Hall of Fame, where your glory will be remembered for years to come.
- Receive the Golden Hat medal for your online persona *
- Everyone who enters gets a number of slaves equal to the number of entries. If 40 people enter we award 40 slaves to each person who entered.
- If you place in the top 3, you'll win a prize, courtesy of The Russian Alternative.

*= As with previous Golden Hats; if there are more then 10 entrants the Silver and Bronze Golden Hat Medals will be awarded as well.

Entries will count towards a veteran medal.

As usual once all entries are received a voting thread will be created. If there are any questions please PM me, another Staff member or post them here.

Summary:
Subject Matter:  Create anything you like that will showcase just how great Chaos Dwarfs can be!
Due Date: 11:59 PM Nov 30th, 2013 EST (Eastern Standard Timezone)

If any forum members would like to help "up the ante" by donating models or other materials as prizes, feel free to contact myself or one of the Staff to help sort out the details.

I myself will be donating a bag of Warhammer Fantasy bits to one random entrant, and I'll make sure it is a good pile of stuff too!

That's it, so get those slaves back to the forges and salt mines and let's have a record-setting number of entries for GHXX!!

Insane! So many ideas.

High Lord Sorcerer Messiah on shield carried by steampowered Dawi Zharr? Chaos Dwarf Siege Airship of Armageddon? The whole tower city of Zharr-Naggrund? Hashut?!

It's gonna be epic!

WIP shots of conversion work is okay on my blog? Or should I keep it all completly secret?

I have two ideas for this comp. I am going to have to pick one and do it. Oh my...I will have to just gather my thoughts, and maybe even create some sort of timeline to follow, so I don't run out of time.

I'm really looking forward to see what everyone creates.

It is OK if they've already been posted to your blog, but generally from this point forward it should not be shown until after the competition has closed and results posted. This is partly to keep entries and entrants secret until the creators are revealed at the end of the competition.  Even if you make something amazing you're opening up your entry to early criticism, and the Internet being what it is, even a couple of people who may have voted for you might vote otherwise if they saw your WIP and then subconsciously think that you didn't complete it or paint it as well as they imagined.

So I put together a timeline last night. It's funny how tasks expand to fill the time you have.  Even making week-long task specific blocks through the entire 8 weeks I'm still unsure of how I'm going to finish what I want to make in time... let alone have time for real work or training.

Here's hoping I can actually finish this time! My track record over the past two years is not good Tongue

This is a cool theme and im sure it will attract some of the best entries we have seen in a while but i think ill have to skip this one. The only thing ive got left to paint are a few models to finish up my last few units which leaves me with my whole army as an entry lol.

I'm definitely in this one.

I know I often say that, but I'm sick of painting rank and file and need something cool to do. Happy

I have just the project in mind as well...
