Golden Hat #13 - MusicianGrimstonefire 09-12-2010


Welcome to the 13th Golden Hat competition of Chaos Dwarfs Online!

Subject Matter
Create a single Chaos Dwarfs themed musician

The model has to represent an entry from the Ravening Hordes list.  There is a lot of flexibility here to theme it as something from a fan list, as for example you could create a musician in plate armour (a 'warrior' that looks like an immortal).  Or a slave brute (goblin/orc/black orc counts as model).  Maybe a sneaky git musician, or some kind of sorcerer themed thing, or a CD miner.  Or two hobgoblins on a wolf (cavalry base) fighting over a horn etc.  You could even do a model of similar 'importance' to a Battle Standard bearer (albeit without any rules).  Plenty of ideas.

For those thinking this is too restrictive, bear in mind that this will make it very competitive, it will be a true test of creativity and skill.  Wink

Basing
The model has to be on game-legal base.

Particulars
Due Date: 11:59 PM October 31st 2010 EST (Eastern Standard Timezone)
Subject Matter:  Create a musician

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 October 31st 2010 (Eastern Standard Timezone). Entries will not be accepted after that date and time regardless of how cool your submission is. (Around 7 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.

Entries will count towards a veteran medal.

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.

RE: Golden Hat #13 - Musicianclam 09-12-2010

Hmm! - not exactly what I was hoping for. No musicians in the classical old school production line - I'll have to think this one over - and see if I can come up with an idea.

@Warh
That's a secret not be revealed - but I guess someone forgot to mention that for Willmark - lol.

We've introduced the Veterans' Medal as a non-exclusive way of encouraging participation, in much the same way as slaves and the other medals on the site. Like the slave system there is a set way to earn these medals, but the precise method is kept a secret.

This is to stop people simply entering half-hearted efforts to chase medals in the same way that some people flood or spam to get a high post count. The medals are awarded for being a frequent participant in our 2 main contests


But as you can see in my medal collection' there is really nothing to it - as it is an invisible medal - and how wants that anyway Tongue

RE: Golden Hat #13 - MusicianNicodemus 09-12-2010

Yikes. For once I don't immediately have something in my head for an entry. I'll need to give this some careful consideration.

I can see that picking a Bull Centaur or Hobgoblin Wolf Rider will give a lot more opportunity due to the much larger base size (25x50 vs. 20x20) which is a big consideration at the judging stage (assuming everything else being equal, of course).

What about a Bull Centaur blowing through huge horn that's being held aloft?  ... except that the horn has been rammed through a Dwarf's mouth and out his backside? Could I do that? Wink  I guess everyone will know what my entry is now Tongue

RE: Golden Hat #13 - MusicianHashut's Blessing 09-12-2010

I'm pretty excited about this. I think that there's loads of potential. However, the current state of my army means I am only considering two different units for this. However, I'm likely to go with a specific one (duh: I mean I've pretty much decided which, just now) and have two thoughts on how to gabout it. I may incorporate both, lol Big Grin

Single figure aye? Makes me tempted to dig out what I have left of Dwarf bits and pieces and maybe make something.

We shall see, we shall see.

Either way, I look forward to seeing what people come up with for this one.

@Da Crusha.  Nothing that has been shown painted before can be entered, if you've shown it undercoated we'd allow it.

@Golder Goldeater.  2 models on one game legal base is a perfectly fine conversion.  You'd have to consider how it ranked if it's going to be an issue.
