...and carved into the rocks were graven images of tyrannical figures and heinous scenes...

Dark Art Studios Presents: Artisan's Contest XX!

Concept Art Challenge

The goal here is to create a piece of concept art of something Chaos Dwarfen by drawing, sketching or painting it (i.e. no miniature entries). Digital tools are allowed, and some scribblings as seen on many concept sketches are likewise allowed, but please keep any text amount low. The amount of work invested in the art entry can vary from a simple sketch up to a full-blown illustration.

Grab the opportunity for a new take on a Chaos Dwarf warrior, or to design a Sorcerer-Prophet, a new kind of Lammasu or some never-before-seen infernal contraption! Show us old weaponry redesigned in your way, or entirely new inventions. Draw Hobgoblins and slave chain gang rabble if you feel like it, or your version of K'daai and other shackled Daemons. Come up with concepts for evil dwarves from other settings if you wish. Show us your vision of the 9th Age Disciples of Lugar. Have an idea for a new kind of big hat? Put it down on paper! Be creative and let loose your originality!

The scope is wide and concepts of Chaos Dwarf architecture, open-pit slave mines, war caravans on the march, altars, domestic homes and similar things are welcome. Your one contest picture may include any number of related or unrelated objects, but note that clarity and a strong theme (e.g. one or a few sketches revolving all around some kind of Daemonsmith or torturer) will aid your entry in the voting.


Dark Art Studious has kindly donated this unpainted miniature of Goretrek the Chaos Dwarf for the gold winner!

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


The deadline for the submission of entries is September 27th 2016 at 11:59pm EST.

Rules of the Competition

Each member may only enter once.

Sketch, draw, paint and use digital tools to come up with a concept image of Chaos Dwarfs.

Submissions should include one picture only. Your one picture with concept art may contain any number of objects, figures and scenes. No overlaid words of explanation please.

You may not submit a picture of a drawing or painting 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 one link or image 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.

How will this be judged?

Sometime after September 27th we will post all entries to a new thread and voting can commence!

Good luck everyone!

Fuggit Khan
, doing every detail to the dot, CDOs perfectionist extraordinaire! Fuggit Khans skill with greenstuff is one of a kind, he's ability to make Big Hat conversions seemless. Fuggit has the medals to show this skill through a bucnch of won Golden Hats. A very well deserved medal indeed - and for the third time in a row. Congratulations Fuggit Khan.

A nominee for this award has contributed an amazing model, or models that exemplifies what a Chaos Dwarf army should look like: flawless execution of conversion and painting while adhering to the Chaos Dwarf mythos.

Best Contributor -
, contribution to the Chaos Dwarf chaos is excellent. Sculpting hobgoblin heads for conversions and writing fluff. Especially the fluff writing makes Admiral take the Contributor Medal of 2015. Bringing out a constant flow of short stories, poems, songs, sagas and other fiction regarding Chaos Dwarfs. Admiral has hammered out a library worth of fluff through 2015 - and the stories and background forum show it. Congratulations Admiral, well deserved.

Best Overall Member -
. CDO is a community and the best and most friendly miniatures community on the internet. The last half of 2015 was a hard time for CDO and many old Warhammer communities. Communities are made by all the members, but Admiral is special. Admiral steamed through 2015. Bringing a constant stream of competitions for the members to join, making jpg. banners, sending out prizes, putting threads together and counting votes. Admiral pretty much was the entire CDO staff for half a year.  
Thank you Admiral, very well deserved. Congratulations.

This member may not be the best hobbyist, might not ever win a tournament, but he or she has a great presence on the site, the forum, the wiki, the chat and whatever else!  They are dedicated to the cause of the Chaos Dwarfs!

Thank you CDO

  New Medals - Dark Apostle and Hellsmith
Posted by: Bloodbeard - 08-19-2016 08:42 AM - Replies (17)
0New Medals
A nice part of this community is the achievement system we have going with medals! Small tokens to show the honour in completing models, uploading in our gallery, making grand armies and winning competitions.

Today we are introducing two new medals to the site. Both were made by members finding time to help out CDO. Check out the Call to Arms thread and see how you can help the community.

The medals have been discussed in the Immortal Section (thanks for your input) and the Staff Section..

Hellsmith Medal
This beauty is designed by Enjoysrandom.

This medal is awarded for bringing new Chaos Dwarf models into the world. It's awarded to the members who're responsible for making this happen. A criteria for recieving this medal is that the models have been cast in a reasonable quantity and sold or given back to the community.
Bronze - is for making 1 model.
Silver - is for making 5 models.
Gold - is for making 10 models.

And as we have some excellent sculptors in our community we'll be handing out some right away!
Gold: Baggronor, Rozmax and Admiral - with LKMiniatures and Macrocosm getting theirs upon completion of their campaign.
Silver: AtomTaylor
Bronze: Ravenswood (1), Grimestonefire (3)

Are we missing someone? Properly - then please give a shout!

Dark Apostle
This beauty is designed by Carcearion.

The Dark Apostle medal is handed out for bringing word of CDO to the internet. This community is driven by members uploading content, donating prizes, discussing rules and joining competitions. We want to award those members who spread the word of CDO. Link their own blogs in facebook groups, promote our competitions, commenting on other forums, bring in new members from tournatments and so on. For this medal to work, members will have make mention of themselves. Please keep in mind that CDO does not want to become known for spamming.

And to get the show started we'll be awarding to bronze medals right away.
Both tjub and TheHoodedMan have very recently been directly responsible for bringing in new members to the site.
