  Golden Hat XXVIII
Posted by: Admiral - 10-13-2017 11:37 AM - Replies (8)


CDO 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):

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 some Slave Orc heads! 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!

And now for the prizes! Will Liam has won these Hobgoblin slavedrivers in metal from Admiralty Miniatures (to be released properly once the caster has got around to sort out an important thing on his end):

While this nifty sprue from Carcearion's Bit Forge is passed on to a worthy grindstone builder, Abecedar!

A big "thanks" to everyone who participated and voted, as well as a big thanks to Carcearion for his prize donation!

0Hello potential new user,

To combat bot sign-ups to the forum, I have changed the registration settings. Registrations will now need to be manually activated by site Administrators. This may be temporary as we attempt to resolve this issue.

Thanks for your patience,

  Stopgap Manual Fix to Locked-Down Photobucket Pictures

0Stopgap fix to Photobucket images under lockdown (my emboldening):

Warseer's Captain Brown Wrote:

As some long term PLOGers and cornerstones of some of the Painting Log areas, the member Ash has come up with a fix.

"With the Photobucket pictures not showing; if you go into edit post and insert ~original between .jpg and [/img] as in .jpg~original[/img] then the original picture will show again..." and it works!

I have asked him to share that in the stickies at the top of each painting forum, but thought I would pass that on to you who had large PLOGs blocked in the meantime.



Those who have not yet replaced their own Photobucket pictures with identical pictures hosted elsewhere, may want to scour their army blogs and other hobby threads. However,  adding ~original to the address lines will not make the linked images compatible with the more thorough Migration to the Darklands solution!

Note however that we cannot consider this a permanent solution, only a stopgap option. It is possible that Photobucket may come to block this fixture, transform itself beyond recognition or go down altogether as a site.

Please see our Migration to the Darklands below for a sturdier long-term fix, and above all, please keep backup copies of your pictures on both physical and cloud storage, as many different devices and online albums as possible. Also, if you have memory space to spare, please consider downloading the following Google Drive folders to spread the picture files over as many heads as possible to give us insurance in case of digital disaster!
