"Pull!"





Zanko Presents: Artisan's Contest XXVII!

Monument

The goal here is to make one or more monuments for your Chaos Dwarf collection! People can enter with any number of monuments, and likewise you are free to include miniatures not shared online before in a finished state as part of your entry. The field is wide open to craft dioramas surrounding e.g. the building of monuments complete with ramps, teams of slaves, draft animals and slavedrivers, scaffolding and so on; or dark sorcerous rituals taking place on monuments; or battles; or bored guards at duty; or victims being dragged onto altars or into torture chambers. Make a scene out it if you like, preferably with a megalomaniac backdrop!

If you're looking for ideas, then here are a few just to get the imagination in gear: Ziggurat temple; palace; stele; triumphal arch (Gates of Zharr?); mausoleum, a bronze or stone colossus that also happens to be your army's big monster;  triumphal column; obelisk; clockwork statue; tower of skulls; giant Rune of Hashut floating in the air ; unstable Daemonforged petrified Greater Daemon locked in worldly stone and chained agony; a ruined and toppled monument; macabre display arrangement of flayed skins or bodies or bones; or an idol statue spewing molten lava into a sacrificial pool; or a stepwell leading down to bubbling lava; a Realmgate; or something else entirely. The sky is the limit!

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

Zanko will reward the gold winner with this scenery piece:


While the silver winner will carry home a kit of 15mm Tjubling Hat Command, sculpted by tjub:


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 the 3rd of July 2019 at 11:59pm EST.



Rules of the Competition

Each member may only enter once.

Model and paint monument/s.

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 the due date we will post all entries to a new thread and voting can commence!

Good luck everyone!
The Staff

Cool, better get ready for some terrain making then... Happy

Would this include an AoS "Realm Gate" as well, or is that planned for some future contest?

Ah, very nice topic for the next Artisan's Contest! I don't think I will be able to enter, it's just too early in my plans to already think about monuments, but you never know, 56 days is a long time Tongue Already excited to see what everyone will come up with! Takes Hat off

That's a great idea for a separate contest theme! We'll run it in due time, though not too soon after this comp. But yes: This monument contest includes AoS Realmgates as well. Happy

And speaking of Realmgates...

Igor. I feel the time has come for a memorial to my modest achievements. A monument perhaps? Subtle and understated like myself. Call the masons. I think I will need maybe one, maybe two thousand. Oh and slaves it will need a lot of slaves. Subtle and understated is, after all, hard to achieve!

@ Abecedar. Why torture yourself? You know you are going to give in. Resistance, as they say, is futile. Looking forward to your entry alteady!
