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

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
and they'll sort it out with the rest of the Staff.
