  E-mail Contact for Registration
Posted by: Admiral - 05-13-2018 04:54 AM - No Replies
0As many of you know, we've experienced increasing registration issues over the last few years, not due to bugs in forum software (but possibly connected to new E-mail spam filters). Many send-outs of automated E-mail confirmations never reached the inboxes. As of presently account activation is set to manual. Anyone registering is invited to shoot an E-mail to this address to speed up the process, or even make it happen at all, unless they can find a registered user to act as middleman:

Please share if you happen to know someone likely to want to register on Chaos Dwarfs Online. Apologies to those long stuck in the loop: Hopefully things will work for you now.

Note that the old CDO Hotmail address no longer exists, according to Hotmail (we have reason to believe otherwise), and is at the least inaccessible for us. Please turn to the above Gmail address for contact: This is the current stopgap measure.

Things are being looked into. Ideally we'd like to both update PHPBB software; retain or reimplement the heavily customized features; find a working and free software alternative; and not least get automated activation by E-mail confirmation working again. Any quality recommendations for free forum software are welcome. We'll keep you updated if and when solutions are found.

Thanks for being part of CDO, and thanks for wishing to become part of this forum!

"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.


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.


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
