Golden Hat #11 - Chaos Dwarf SorcererXander 01-05-2010



Welcome to the 11th Golden Hat competition of Chaos Dwarfs Online!

Subject Matter
Create an unmounted Chaos Dwarf Sorcerer.  Unit Strength 1.

Basing
The model does not have to sit on a game-legal 20mm base, but it cannot be in a duel with anything.  The base can be no larger than 40mm.

Particulars
Due Date: 11:59 PM February 28th 2010 EST (Eastern Standard Timezone)
Subject Matter:  Create an unmounted 'Chaos Dwarf Sorcerer'

What is the deadline?
Once again same basic premise as previous Golden Hats; send all entries to the Golden Hat account no later 11:59 PM February 28th 2010 (Eastern Standard Timezone). Entries will not be accepted after that date and time regardless of how cool your submission is. (Around 6 weeks to complete your entry).

If for some reason you are having trouble with your submission, contact one of the Staff. in order to avoid problems. I "highly advise" that entrants do not wait until the very last minute to submit their entries...

How to Enter
Upload up to 4 photos of your entries to the internet.  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:
- Rightly take your place in the Golden Hat Hall of Fame, where your glory will be remembered for years to come.
- Receive the Golden Hat medal for your online persona *
- Everyone who enters gets a number of slaves equal to the number of entries. If 50 people enter we award 50 slaves to each person who entered.

*= As with previous Golden Hats; if there are more then 10 entrants the silver and bronze Golden Hat Medals will be awarded as well.

As usual once all entries are received a thread will be created for voting. And as always if there are any questions please PM me, another Staff member or post them here.

Nice, I'm on Big Grin

But no GH thread without a question from me:

Unmounted?? ... would mechanical devices such as mech legs be considered as being mounted? or more precise - could this be Astragoth?

this can turn out very interesting!
cant wait to see what all you guys (and gals) come up with!
good opportunity for me since I have no sorcerer on foot at all so far,
the big question is what lore I will pick... grumble...

RE: Golden Hat #11 - Chaos Dwarf SorcererGrimstonefire 01-17-2010

For the sake of being concise, I will edit it to be a model of Unit Strength 1.

This leaves it open for people to do some sort of steam legs (that would for instance grant +1M and +1 Armour save, but not have a separate profile).

Xander originally had it written as 'on foot', but I figured that was making things equally as complicated and restricted things a bit.

So people can be imaginative, but if you cannot convince the staff it looks like a Unit Strength 1 model it will not be allowed.

Question #2 -

Could my sorcerer be sitting on something, like a rock, chair, 1957 Chevy front fender, or whatever, and still be considered "On Foot", as long as he wasn't riding on some kind of beast?

The reason why I ask this is because I have an interesting idea of where I want my Sorcerer to be. Without divuldging too much, I'd like to do something along the lines of Thorek Ironblow or whatever he's called, size permitting, of course.

RE: Golden Hat #11 - Chaos Dwarf SorcererWillmark 01-17-2010

In order: Tarrakk Blackhand- It has to fit onto a 20mm base so it could be tight trying to do so.

Thommy- Yes. Like past competitions the model cannot have been pictured on the site painted; if it appeared in a WIP it can be used for this competition. Bear in mind however it tends to detract (somewhat) if you know whose entry it is. However at this sage we can generally guess whose entries are whose... Happy

Gar- for default purposes of the site and contests unless otherwise specified Ravening Hordes is the default.

RE: Golden Hat #11 - Chaos Dwarf SorcererGrimstonefire 01-17-2010

Is the Daemonsmith a sorcerer?  If so, any sort of themed sorcerer is cool.  Sorcerers are pretty much in every list anyway in some form or another.

@Tarrakk/ Willmark

I did think of that specifically when I was answering above. Wink  The Dwarf lord on shieldbearers is unit strength 3.  So whilst it doesn't have to be on 20mm (for those who want to do a small display base) it does have to be unit strength 1.

RE: Golden Hat #11 - Chaos Dwarf SorcererTarrakk Blackhand 01-17-2010

To Quote Willmark -

Quote:
Tarrakk Blackhand- It has to fit onto a 20mm base so it could be tight trying to do so.


To Quote the above rule -

[quote]Basing
The model does not have to sit on a game-legal 20mm base, but it cannot be in a duel with anything.  The base can be no larger than 40mm.[quote]

Therefore, I have from 0mm up to 40mm to design this Sorcerer.

I wasn't thinking of Shieldbearers, or that concept. Just to have the Sorcerer sitting down on something.

Therefore, with all due respect, if I understand Willmark and the rules correctly, as long as I can stuff the whole thing into the 20mm-40mm base allowance, and as long as the Sorcerer isn't on a mount (Being animal), and isn't dueling another figure, then I'm ok to go ahead with my idea.

Example - On his 30mm base, the Sorcerer is sitting on a rock and brushing his teeth and in his other hand, he's holding a spitoon.  - Is that all right? (I'm not doing that for the contest, it's just so that the concept is coming across.)

A spitoon eh... nice...  So I'm pretty excited about this, I've been sculpting off and on all day and it's coming out pretty well, (I'm sure nothing compared to some of the work I've seen on this site - but I'm happy ;-) Competitions like this are really excellent, a way to get people creative, and encourage people to develop their art!  Kudos to CDO!!!!!
