0Happy Holidays-2017 from CDO!

I hope everyone here has a great Holiday Season! (whatever you personally celebrate) and a great New Year.

So you know what it means... The Holiday Thread! The Dark (Lord) Shogun of Hashut (aka) me, has once again rounded up more slaves from the Pits of Zharr Nagrund. What better way to celebrate being Chaos Dwarfs than to dole out slaves to do your Christmas shopping, clear the latrines or

Partake in the poll and see if you're rewarded. Poll will run until December 31st.

Special thanks to CDO member Forgefire for the picture.

A lonely watch. A thankless death.

Zanko Presents: Artisan's Contest XXIII!

Watchtower Artwork Challenge

The goal here is to create a piece of artwork depicting one or more Chaos Dwarf or Hobgoblin watchtowers. This can be done 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 to present us your take(s) on Dawi Zharr or Hobgoblin watchtower! Your entry could be a sketch, a technical/architectural schematic or an illustration. You could depict a lonely watchtower out in the ashen wastes or overlooking some craters, open pit mines or lava springs, or even place a watchtower in the middle of a lava pool. Likewise, you could have a watchtower out of the rock wall of a mountain or an open pit mine, overlooking the wilds or works below; or a coastal watchtower; a mobile watchtower mounted on a train car; or even a watchtower floating on the water or in the air; or something else completely!

Surrounding facilities such as lodgings, stables, stores, water tanks or barricades are welcome if entrants want to add such details to the watchtower. Watchtower personel are welcome, and if you want to include a scene of enemies sighted, Nasty Skulkers climbing the walls of the tower or monsters attacking the outpost, a mechanized war caravan steaming past or an important courier being received, then by all means do so!


The gold winner will recieve one kit of four 15mm Tjubling blunderbusses from Admiralty Miniatures (note: can be used for terrain decoration in 28mm collections):

Plus Grulka Blackhand, Dwarf Heroine, from Titan Wargames. Courtesy of Zanko!

Furthermore, Zanko has donated Marrog Blackhand, Dwarf Hero, to the silver winner:

And Cinneron Dhum, Dwarf Pyromancer, for the bronze 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 December 8th 2017 at 11:59pm EST. (3 weeks!)

  Golden Hat XXVIII

Warcolours presents: The 28th Golden Hat competition on Chaos Dwarfs Online!

This contest has been sponsored by Admiralty Miniatures - The gold winner will claim a kit of 12 unpainted whitemetal Slave Orc Heads of Ancient Times, soon to be released (shown here with Citadel plastic Orc for scale purposes only):

Furthermore, this contest has been sponsored by Warcolours! The silver winner will claim a €30 coupon on Warcolours shop.

As for the bronze winner, Zanko has kindly donated a couple of OldHammer Miniatures (made by AtomTaylor), namely a big hat Overlord on foot and a Boar Centaur boss:

Subject Matter: Chaos Dwarf Gunnery Teams

For this contest we want you to model and paint one Chaos Dwarf Gunnery Team of some sort.

This contest is not about Hobgoblin bolt throwers, Dreadquake/Earthshaker Mortars, Deathrockets/Deathshrieker Rocket Launchers, Hellcannons/Asscannons or Magma Cannons; or rather, it is not about big artillery (though people are welcome to make much smaller versions of the mentioned themes). Think small; light artillery; support weapons. 2 Chaos Dwarf crewmembers per team, no more, although one single Chaos Dwarf crewmember could be used instead if you have reasons. You can use non-Chaos Dwarf slaves as helpes aside from the actual Chaos Dwarf crew.

A gunnery team could be anything from a machine gun; a flamethrower; a mini-mortar/petard; a swivel gun; a mini-Hellcannon/Asscannon-style Daemonforged or possessed shooting weapon; a bazooka; a fireball-casting statue with handlers; a wimpy Obsidian golem spitting shards with handlers; a K'daai spitting fire with handlers; a gigantic two-man blunderbuss; or something else entirely. So long as you go for something you would deem too small for heavy artillery service, then the sky is the limit!

If you are unsure if your entry will fit the subject matter, please contact Admiral or Bloodbeard and they'll sort it out with the rest of the Staff.

Bases are to be max 60mm wide (Gunnery Teams in the Ninth Age go on 40mm rounds, but pick whatever shape and size you like within the 60mm limit). Display bases and Plinths are not allowed. You could also skip a base altogether if that suits your collection better.

Subject: Chaos Dwarf Gunnery Teams.
Bases:  Max 60mm wide. No display bases, plinths, though, please.
The Due Date: 11:59 PM November 9th, 2017 EST (Eastern Standard Time Zone)

Please read the full rules that apply to the Golden Hat competition before submitting your entry.

All entries must be sent to the Golden Hat account no later than the due date. Entries will not be accepted after this. (Entrants have approximately 4 weeks to complete entries). If for some reason you are having trouble with your submission, contact Admiral or Bloodbeard. In order to avoid problems, entrants should not wait until the last minute to submit their entries.

How to Enter
Upload up to 4 photos of your entry to the Internet. Photos may not have additional text or items/models unrelated to your entry. 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:
- Walk across the backs of the cowed masses you have scorned and pushed aside, in order to take your place in the vaunted Golden Hat Hall of Fame.
- Receive the Golden Hat medal for your online persona.
- Everyone who enters gets a number of slaves equal to the number of entries. If 20 people enter we award 20 slaves to each person who entered. Entries will count towards a veteran medal.
- Win prizes! See above for details.

Once all entries are received a thread will be created for voting and determining the winners!

If there are any questions it is best to post them here so that everyone can benefit from any details or clarifications that may arise.

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.

Good luck everyone!
