  Artisan's Contest XXVI
Posted by: Admiral - 11-24-2018 09:27 AM - Replies (13)

Steaming upon high seas do the Chaos Dwarfs scourge distant shores and forgotten lands in their maverick search for plunder. Borne on vessels of sooty steel and sporting smoke-belching chimneys do the Dawi Zharr traverse the world to sate their hunger for wealth, slaves and power, and they will let nothing stand in their way to profit and dark glory. As such, the Blacksmiths of Chaos are a fearsome sight for sailors and shoresfolk on any ocean, carrying blade and guns to foreign realms for the sake of their baleful Dark God, and woe! Woe betide those taken alive...

"Harr harr yarr!"

Titan Wargames Presents: Artisan's Contest XXVI!

Mariners of Malevolence Artwork Challenge

To celebrate the glimpse of Zharr Vyxa (thanks to Thommy H for spotting it!) we're throwing a salty contest! Come join if you ever fancied getting your feet wet, whether in the Old World or beyond fabled Realmgates, or in whatever setting you fancy for your evil midgets! The fiery Dawi Zharr have a solid history with the sea, with official material ranging from an enormous underground tunnel connecting the Sea of Chaos to the navigable River Ruin, through a navy in Man o' War to Dreadfleet's Black Kraken, not to mention various community produce here on CDO. Certainly, the seven oceans and their dark depths are not safe from our grasping hands!

The goal here is to create a piece of artwork featuring something relating to Chaos Dwarfs and the sea, river or ships. 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 Hobgoblins on the high seas! Your entry could be a sketch, a technical/architectural schematic or an illustration. You could depict a sailor; a slavedriver whipping slaves to shovel coal below decks; a harbour; a drowning Chaos Dwarf; a submersible vessel; coastal fortifications; pirate scenes; a naval battle; boarding action; Chaos Dwarf warship classes or other vessels; coal barges steaming down River Ruin; oceanic platforms; scenes from Dawi Zharr myths connected to the sea; a convoy steaming through a dark naval tunnel; a Chaos Dwarf flotilla attacked by sea monsters; or something else entirely.


The Gold winner will take home a Dwarves of the Dark Bell Tower Bazooka Team kit, sculpted by Fuggit Khan!

The Silver winner will receive an unpainted Marrog Blackhand from Titan Wargames, courtesy of Baggronor!

The Bronze winner will get a kit of 7 Dwarves of the Dark Bell Tower Big Hats, sculpted by Fuggit Khan!

While a random entrant will claim a 15mm Tjubling Thunderhammer Rocket!

Also, another random entrant will win an unpainted onion hat axeman, donated by Zanthrax!

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 January 19th 2019 at 11:59pm EST. (eight weeks!)

Rules of the Competition

Each member may only enter once.

Sketch, draw, paint and use digital tools to come up with an artwork or concept image having to do with Chaos Dwarfs, Hobgoblins and the sea, rivercraft or ships.

Submissions should include one picture file only. Your one picture with art may contain any number of objects, figures and scenes.

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 January the 19th we will post all entries to a new thread and voting can commence!

Good luck everyone!

Warcolours presents...

We did it first, we still do it best: The Flaming Taurus!

Subject Matter: The Flaming Taurus (what ever you imagine that to be)

As with past Golden Hat competitions, this is a modeling and painting competition.

The entry an be anything you like.  It may be a single model of any size, it may be two models locked in a duel, it may be a unit, multiple units, a warmachine, or perhaps your vision of "The Flaming Taurus" is the local pub in old Zharr Naggrund where filthy hard-working folk gather to drink and trade tall tales of their slave hordes and latest exploits at the forge!

You can convert or model your own figure(s), or use any existing model(s) from any miniatures range (maybe the recently released Blazing Taurus for that other army should be shown its new home in your army? Just make sure it is fully painted and hasn't been shown in its completed state before (although WIP shots of any conversion or modeling work are welcome in the submission photos).

The choice is unrestricted, so you may choose to go with a diorama style, a plinth, or any other sort of base - or no base at all.

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


The gold winner will receive a €30 store coupon from Warcolours! Courtesy of Poison...

...and likewise the gold winner will receive a kit of Pantry Produce Set - Twisting Catacombs from Zealot Miniatures:

The silver winner will win 10 Sons of Adramelech with hand weapon and shields plus command group, courtesy of Werewoolf Miniatures and shipped by Bloodbeard!


While the bronze winner will get to pick something from Thingiverse or a suchlike source and have it printed for them by Kamphre, as long as it's not too big for his 3D-printer!

And finally, one random entrant will get to claim a Tjubling Skull Mask Command Group!

When is the deadline?
We are going with the same deadline as previous Golden Hats; send all entries to the Golden Hat account no later 11:59 PM Nov 16th, 2018 EST (Eastern Standard Timezone). Entries will not be accepted after that date and time regardless of how cool your submission is. (You have around 8 weeks to complete your entry)

If for some reason you are having trouble with your submission, contact one of the Staff before the deadline. In order to avoid problems, we strongly advise entrants not wait until the very last minute to submit their entries... As things can and do go wrong. Please do not send entries to individual Admin or Staff members to submit on your behalf as they may not check their PMs!

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:
- Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals will be awarded.
- Take your place in the Golden Hat Hall of Fame.
- Receive the Golden Hat medal for your online persona *
- Stay tuned over the first few days of the competition too for news of prizes for this GH! More news to come.
- Everyone who enters gets a number of slaves equal to the number of entries. If 10 people enter we award 10 slaves to each person who entered.

Entries will count towards a veteran medal.

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

Subject Matter:  The Flaming Taurus
Due Date: 11:59 PM Nov 16th, 2018 EST (Eastern Standard Timezone)
