Artisan's Contest XXIVAdmiral 04-04-2018



"Who needs life when you've got constructs?"





HPN & Carcearion's Bit Forge Presents: Artisan's Contest XXIV!

Stone, Flesh and Fire: Chaos Dwarf Golems

The goal here is to make some golems for your Chaos Dwarf collection! People can enter with any number of golem models. Golem constructs can be made of whatever you fancy: Magma, stone, clay, obsidian, metal, flesh, a wild Daemonic mass, fire (i.e. K'daii), chains or something else entirely.

You are welcome to make a diorama out of your entry, if you wish, e.g. having a Golem being activated by a sorcerous handler, or having a Golem unit tearing an enemy monster apart, limb for limb, or having a golem construct tear open a Goblin's hut.

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.


Prizes

HPN will reward the gold winner with something special, namely one fully converted model based upon either this male or this female "blank" figure, tailored according to the winner's desire:


The silver winner will get an Evil Dwarf Bull Demon Altar from Carcearion:


Tjub and Admiralty Miniatures will reward the bronze winner with a kit of metal Tjubling Hammer Guards!


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

Deadline

The deadline for the submission of entries is May 16th 2018 at 11:59pm EST.

Rules of the Competition

Each member may only enter once.

Model and paint golem models.

Bases or no bases are up to you.

Submissions should include up to four pictures. No overlaid words of explanation or photoshop effects in your submitted photos please.

You may not submit pictures of a model that have been entered into other online competitions or posted in a finished state before.

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 four photos of your entry. Please do not send an e-mail to any of the admin or staff accounts as this is a sure fire way to have your entry missed.

Please note that your entry will benefit if the photos are all clearly composed, since voters will base their judgement upon what they can see in the pictures on their computer screens.

How will this be judged?

Sometime after May the 16th we will post all entries to a new thread and voting can commence!

Special thanks to Carcearion for making us the snazzy contest banner.

Good luck everyone!
The Staff

Only have to put the hands on him and he's ready to paint - He is about 17cm high and 10cm wide - what standard size do you guys think the base should be for a warhammer miniature of this size and race? cheers

Perhaps 150x100mm (Hellcannon and K'daii Destroyer base) if going square?

Yep going square so 150x100 it is - does it matter which way the base is facing or can it face ether way and while I’m asking what size is a juggernaut base? I always get stuck on the base sizes with these comps

RE: Artisan's Contest XXIVAdmiral 04-09-2018

For tabletop wargaming, use the longer 150mm side as the flanks of the monster, with 100mm sides as the rear and front. Like a chariot base, only bigger. This way a flank charge by a wide regiment is more punishing. If you're just out for the looks of it all (or your opponents don't mind), you're of course free to put it with long 150mm side as front. But for games, long side as flank is a safe bet.

Once upon a time Juggernauts were based on 50x50mm bases, but then a wave of monstrous cavalry regiments washed over Warhammer, and they got a 50x75mm base. Demigryph-size. I'd go with the latter, the bigger one. For AoS rounds, it's a 90mm oval base.

Of course, you're free to base your models however you like, including on hexagonal bases, chariot bases, cavalry bases (counts-as Bull Centaurs?), infantry bases (counts-as Disciples of Lughar in T9A?), crescent-shaped bases, a single regimental base (Kings of War) or no bases at all. And entries in other scales than 15mm are also welcome. The days when miniatures had to be on army list millimeter correct bases for contests are over, although we're happy to advise if someone wants to keep their minis based in a way consistent with standards for one wargame or another.

Unlike in the actual Warhammer Fantasy army books, the base sizes are written down in the unit entries for the 9th Age army books. And since T9A is the direct though fan-driven inheritor of the Warhammer Fantasy wargame with its square bases and distinct regimental combat, its army books is always a good go-to. However, everything is renamed, so finding what one seek requires some familiarity or it will be a hassle. So don't hesitate to ask here if you want to keep basing consistent with WHFB. Happy

Smashing this Golum out - recon he will be finished by the weekend and he was easy to make - first time I’ve used a glue gun to put a warhammer model together lol - I’m finding the hardest thing to do is not post pics of the work in progress on the net - it doesn’t happen often but it seems to be all falling together nicely Happy

I have parts from like four different miniature companies - I just need to do allot of sawing and sculpting and cutting and sanding to make them into one cohesive construct. I am very glad we got allot of time for this one.
