Artisan's Contest XXI

Chaos Dwarf Boardgames!

The goal of this contest is to create a 'Chaos Dwarf themed boardgame'.

In recent years Games Workshop have put of a truckload of different boardgames, based around their miniatures. Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower, Bloodbowl, The Horus Heresy: Betrayal at Caith, Gangs of Commarragh, Gorechosen, Stormcloud Attack etc.

We want you to create a boardgame using Chaos Dwarf miniatures (or related miniatures).

The size of your boardgame is completely up to you as an entrant.




Must contain:
* Your boardgame must include rules for and be centered around some kind of Chaos Dwarf, Hobgoblin or Bull Centaur miniatures.

You can use 28mm miniatures from any company as long as they are evil dwarfs (or bull centaurs, hobgoblins), Manowar ships, Warmaster etc.

* Your entry must include all rules, graphics, counters etc that must be used in playing the game. Besides miniatures.

Your entry must include written rules for your game. If the game needs specific counters you must include those for printing.

* You're allowed to asume your players (being wargamers) have access to some standard terrain, rulers, assorted dice, coins or coloured stones for counters.

* Scale. You can enter as little as a 1 page pdf document with text on how to play duels between two heroes. Or you can enter a .rar archieve with a full colour rulebook, art, fluff text, print and cut tokens and a campaign system for your game. The scale is completely up to you.

Ideas:
Here's some ideas for possible boardgames containing Chaos Dwarfs.
* Bullcentaur track racing.
* Zharrling bathtub ship battles with Manowar or Admiralty miniatures.
* Knife in the back - a sneaky git game of knife fighting.
* Arena Combat - Dawi Zharr pitfighters against the monsters from the wasteland.
* Petried! A magical duel between propehts, last to petrify wins.
* Minecart racing. Hobgolin slavemasters racing in cart through a labyrinth.


You're allowed to be inspired by known games, but with changes. Think 2d6 dice games, ludo, chess, rock-paper-scissors. There's a lot of simple mechanics, that can make a quick small boardgame.




How and what to enter
To enter this competition you must provide a single file for the Staff, containing your finished game. Please provide a link to dropbox, googledrive or similiar cloud service. Send the link in a PM to Bloodbeard.

Or send your entry in an email to Bloodbeard on
Blodskaeg (funky-a) gmail (dotdotdot) com.

Please provide a .pdf, .rar or .zip containing your complete boardgame.

The Staff will then host all entries, so entries can remain anonymous.

Deadline
Writing rules, making a nice setup, testing your game - it all takes time. Entries must be provided to Bloodbeards mail or as a PM before:
April 19th - 2017, 23.59 GMT+1.




Prize
Our very own Jackswift have donated a mighty fine prize for the 1st place in this competition.

10 metal miniatures from Russian Alternative. The Dwarfs of Fire Canyon with Harqebuses.


A big thank you to Jackswift! You should consider sending him some slaves.

If you want to contribute with prizes for this or future competitions, please contact Bloodbeard og Admiral.

Go go go! Let's make some cool boardgames. Any questions, please let us know.

On behalf of the Staff

Boom baby! Create your own board game...damn!

A little bit too ambitious don't you think so?

What amount of time and energy you will have to offer for such a project?

And don't forget to mention talent and some sort of idea.


How many guys would enter that contest? I guess 0 to 1.

RE: Artisan's Contest XXIBloodbeard 03-08-2017

You don't have to make anything that's insanely big. A boardgame can be something as simple as rock-paper-scissors hidden as a small miniature game.

Sneaky Git stabs Black Orc
Black Orc crushes Chaos Dwarf
Chaos Dwarf whips Sneaky Git

Or a simply 2d6 game

A bull centaur has 2d6'' of movement. Whos first around the track.

Or ludo. But instead of 4 similar pieces, you choose models and they have some spefic rules. BCs roll 2 dice and choose the highest for movement. Chaos Dwarfs have to be hit twice to die.

Added the following (as it is in the thought behind the competition, but not really clear enough).

Super cool idea! Yeah! Cheers!
Do I dare say it? I love board games more than table top miniature gaming (I'll have to keep an eye out for a knife in the back after that comment).
I grew up on board games, especially Avalon Hill and SPI games: Panzer Blitz, Squad Leader, Iron Ships and Iron Men, Shiloh, etc.
But sadly I can't participate Sad
Too much real life stuff taking up my time at the moment, but I will be waiting with great anticipation to see what you guys come up with Takes Hat off

Hmm... some deep thought, and time may have to go into this one.  Will have to think on it.  Sometimes it is harder to do something simple...  Plus gaming and the prerequisite modelling have only had about 1% of my time of late...

Well if you turn a big hat upside down you could fill it with oatmeal... and then try to run it across a lava field whilst being shot at by hobgobilns and chased by hangry (ie. angry because they are hungry for oatmeal... and chaos dwarf chef) bull centaurs without spilling too much to have something to put on the altar... call it "Hashut's Breakfast" or "The Most Important Meal... (whose meal is up for debate)" and I think you have the base for a lively game... Tongue Wink

Aww flirk... gave it away... now I have to come up with another idea...

My basic idea's already taking some shape.

I love AH games as well, Fuggit,  for example 1830, Republic of Rome or my favorite Merchant of Venus. Most of them are very time consuming Wink.
