Golden Hat XXVIIIAdmiral 10-13-2017



"Reload!"





CDO presents: The 28th Golden Hat competition on Chaos Dwarfs Online!

This contest has been sponsored by Admiralty Miniatures - The gold winner will claim a kit of 12 unpainted whitemetal Slave Orc Heads of Ancient Times, soon to be released (shown here with Citadel plastic Orc for scale purposes only):



Subject Matter: Chaos Dwarf Gunnery Teams

For this contest we want you to model and paint one Chaos Dwarf Gunnery Team of some sort.

This contest is not about Hobgoblin bolt throwers, Dreadquake/Earthshaker Mortars, Deathrockets/Deathshrieker Rocket Launchers, Hellcannons/Asscannons or Magma Cannons; or rather, it is not about big artillery (though people are welcome to make much smaller versions of the mentioned themes). Think small; light artillery; support weapons. 2 Chaos Dwarf crewmembers per team, no more, although one single Chaos Dwarf crewmember could be used instead if you have reasons. You can use non-Chaos Dwarf slaves as helpes aside from the actual Chaos Dwarf crew.

A gunnery team could be anything from a machine gun; a flamethrower; a mini-mortar/petard; a swivel gun; a mini-Hellcannon/Asscannon-style Daemonforged or possessed shooting weapon; a bazooka; a fireball-casting statue with handlers; a wimpy Obsidian golem spitting shards with handlers; a K'daai spitting fire with handlers; a gigantic two-man blunderbuss; or something else entirely. So long as you go for something you would deem too small for heavy artillery service, then the sky is the limit!

If you are unsure if your entry will fit the subject matter, please contact Admiral or Bloodbeard and they'll sort it out with the rest of the Staff.

Bases are to be max 60mm wide (Gunnery Teams in the Ninth Age go on 40mm rounds, but pick whatever shape and size you like within the 60mm limit). Display bases and Plinths are not allowed. You could also skip a base altogether if that suits your collection better.

Specifics
Subject: Chaos Dwarf Gunnery Teams.
Bases:  Max 60mm wide. No display bases, plinths, though, please.
The Due Date: 11:59 PM November 9th, 2017 EST (Eastern Standard Time Zone)

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

Submission
All entries must be sent to the Golden Hat account no later than the due date. Entries will not be accepted after this. (Entrants have approximately 4 weeks to complete entries). If for some reason you are having trouble with your submission, contact Admiral or Bloodbeard. In order to avoid problems, entrants should not wait until the last minute to submit their entries.

How to Enter
Upload up to 4 photos of your entry to the Internet. Photos may not have additional text or items/models unrelated to your entry. 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:
- Walk across the backs of the cowed masses you have scorned and pushed aside, in order to take your place in the vaunted Golden Hat Hall of Fame.
- Receive the Golden Hat medal for your online persona.
- Everyone who enters gets a number of slaves equal to the number of entries. If 20 people enter we award 20 slaves to each person who entered. Entries will count towards a veteran medal.
- Win some Slave Orc heads! See above for details.

Once all entries are received a thread will be created for voting and determining the winners!

If there are any questions it is best to post them here so that everyone can benefit from any details or clarifications that may arise.

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

Good luck everyone!

RE: Golden Hat XXVIIIGrimstonefire 10-14-2017

I've come up with a really cool idea for this, but it would take ages to build...  Which is saying a lot considering it's only two dwarfs!  lol

Incidentally, are people thinking of going 'old skool' with this (as in 5th-8th ed), or AOS theme?

RE: Golden Hat XXVIIIGhrask Dragh 10-14-2017

This is the conundrum, the theme suits some of the old minis I have from that era with the bazooka dudes and swivel guns but I'm so tempted to go for something brand new instead to bring them up-to-date...  so in answer to that question I have no idea yet Happy

RE: Golden Hat XXVIIIAdmiral 10-15-2017

Thank you, Kamphre! Updated the crew section, to not have rules getting in the way of creative builds (that was never the intention):

GH XXVIII Rules Wrote:
2 Chaos Dwarf crewmembers per team, no more, although one single Chaos Dwarf crewmember could be used instead if you have reasons. You can use non-Chaos Dwarf slaves as helpes aside from the actual Chaos Dwarf crew.


The cap on CD crew to 2 is still in place to help get the gunnery team/light artillery impression over and not trample on bigger artillery territory, but if you want to include slave helpers, then do so.

There are some miniatures in existing ranges out there that could be used straight off for gunnery team weapons. Mantic has a light mortar and flamethrower, while Macrocosm at least used to have lots of different gunnery teams. CDO's AtomTaylor has, or had at least, a petard on offer.

There might be more available gunnery team models still out there. Please share if you know of any.
