I guess Ishkur did do an awesome job. Well done for winning Ishkur. I still think Snotlings entry was awesome as well.


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - AGPO - 10-11-2007 11:44 AM

Great model Ishkur, well done! Any chance of seeing a unit of wolfboyz to go with him?


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - Revlid - 10-11-2007 12:01 PM

Three cheers for Ishkur!

Hip hip, hooray!


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - Ishkur Cinderhat - 10-11-2007 01:27 PM

Yay! Cheers!

Many thanks! I feel very honored.

I had a lot of fun preparing for the contest. It also finally got me to make something new for my Chaos Dwarfs, after having been inappropriately distracted by Space Marines and Death Korps for awhile!

I'll definitely make him the leader of my wolf boyz. Just have to finish 4 more models now, then my unit of 10 is complete and he can join the fun on the battlefield... ^^


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - Pyro Stick - 10-11-2007 01:37 PM

Cant wait to see the completed unit. Its going to look awesome


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - Willmark - 10-11-2007 01:47 PM

Nice job Ishkur. Excellent job.

And great job everyone who participated.

Xander it would be helpful for those of us who are newer to the site to know what the previous Golden Hat competitions were so we could better suggest what Golden Hat #4 should be about.


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - Ghrask Dragh - 10-11-2007 02:35 PM

Cheers! Ishkur! Great Job Takes Hat off

A thread is usually started by an admin to ask for suggestions as to what people want the next competition to be. If you want to know about the previous two you could search for them


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - Canix - 10-11-2007 03:43 PM

Congratulations IshkurCheers! great mini as were all the entries IMO Takes Hat off to all  great to see everybodys take on the hobgoblinsRespect to the Hat!

Yes Congrats Ishkur - you did a awesome job on this - now please enlighten us! How was this beauty achieved?

Edit: Sorry - found it! Never read the forum from the top - I guess!Happy


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - wallacer - 10-11-2007 04:14 PM

Congrats Ishkur.

Warmachines!


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - AGPO - 10-11-2007 05:10 PM

An award for a unit would be good, it would encourage people to get their armies done


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - Gilzam - 10-11-2007 06:03 PM

Congratulations on an awesome model Ishkur and well done to everyone else who entered they were all really good.

If you wouldnt mind Ishkur please do enlighten us on the techniques you used to create it, it would be really helpful to the CD community as I have no doubt that people would love to create something similar, myself being one! Takes Hat off

Yeah that would be cool. Though everyone has his Earthshaker already, and bolt throwers don't make for much of an interesting project... Maybe a piece of terrain, next time?

Of course. We need to further our cause after all! Clam linked to my army thread just a few posts above. I pretty much explained everything there in detail. More text and no one would ever read it Wink


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - Tallhat - 10-11-2007 07:14 PM

Congratulations Ishkur! A very deserved victory. (I wish I had you talent)

I agree! And since everybody has an earthshaker done *cough*hellcannon*cough* I suggest Deathrockets!  I know they aren't that popular among the masses, but hey, its the other daemon engine in the army and would make for some imaginative conversions.

Oh yes, and congrats to Ishkur on another stupendous model! No harm in losing to the best Cheers!


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - angryboy2k - 10-12-2007 01:04 AM

Well done Ishkur. It's another fine addition to your army, which as I've already said, I'd love to own.

Steve

Nor is the Hobbo leader (hero)! Deathrockets is a great idea, but I would prefer BCs/BC heroes

RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - Willmark - 10-12-2007 08:38 AM

Many thanks.

My vote for GH #4 would be one of the following with #3 being my fav.
1) a single regiment
2) a character model any type, mounted, or on foot
3) a standard bearer army or unit.


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - AGPO - 10-12-2007 07:37 PM

Characters c=have been done, but I'm noticing a distinct lack of converted bull centaurs on the site compared to other units, how about a bull centaur hero? On the other hand maybe an effective war machine conversion is an idea...


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - Malificant - 10-12-2007 07:43 PM

how long does the contest run for?


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - Xander - 10-13-2007 01:49 PM

Bull centaurs are an interesting idea. Happy


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - Willmark - 10-13-2007 08:09 PM

on light of what I have seen with the previous golden hats my vote is now definately for standards of any unit. Or barring that army standards.


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - Pyro Stick - 10-14-2007 06:54 AM

Hasnt the standard competition been done before? Cant we have one that doesnt involve converting but just a simple painting competition?


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - Willmark - 10-14-2007 01:24 PM

I'd have to say no Pyro.

GH#1: a figure from the Battle for Skull Pass st
GH#2: Rykarth the unbreakable
GH#3: Hobgoblin
GH#4: ...


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - dedwrekka - 10-15-2007 02:45 AM

A Bull Centaur based contest would be excellent.

Perhaps a Monstrous Creature based one for the Lamasu, Great Taurus, and any other Monstrous creature they think is fluffy with the Chaos Dwarfs?


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - Willmark - 10-20-2007 10:56 AM

Any updates as to what GH #4 will be guys? Inquiring minds want to know.


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - Hammerhand - 10-20-2007 02:55 PM

Having just bought most of the bits I need for a death rocket, A war machine is a really good idea I think!!

But another thing into the mixing pot if I may- The most notable thing that stands us apart from our imperial cousins (apart from curly beards, fangs and general spikeyness) is our Sorcerors, the rulers of our kingdom and the priests of Hashut.  I think a Sorceror would be a magnificent subject for GH4!!

Could we know when GH will be as well, I'll try and plan anything such as holidays/moving house around it this time!!


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - Rumi - 10-22-2007 04:28 AM

yeah! sorcerers all the way dudes! sorcerers are hardcore too! (although aren't all Chaos Dwarf Tongue)
Although with the unit as an idea, i'm gotta be what I think is honest (although you may disagree with me, everyone is entitled to an opinon) Ishkur Cinderhat's Big Hat unit would kick everyones ass.


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - minty - 10-22-2007 06:10 AM

nah, has to be snotling either Hobgoblin - deamon potato sack unt or his head blasting blunderbussess


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - Willmark - 10-22-2007 10:04 AM

huh? Not exactly sure what you are alluding to there Minty...


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - minty - 10-22-2007 10:55 AM

Rumi siad if we did unit Ishkur's unit would wina dn I was dissagreeing


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - Willmark - 10-22-2007 01:20 PM

Ok, got it now.


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - Ishkur Cinderhat - 10-22-2007 01:34 PM

Well since I think that bringing along a unit that was already finished a long time before to a contest is quite lame, I'd have to make new unit anyway. But I agree that there are many cool units out there and definitely some that are more innovative than mine.

The bigger problem with a unit would be the timing, I guess. Since many (and that includes me) barely manage to finish one miniature on the deadline, we'd probably see a lot of incomplete entries...

Concur totally.  If it was a unit thing it would probably be better to do 'Front Rank of a CD Unit' to be 5 models wide.

I don't know about anyone else, but I'm nervous about doing my warmachines and I think that a GH for them would be just the boot up the backside I need to get started!

But I also think a Sorceror would be a great subject and would alow people to go wild.


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - Willmark - 10-22-2007 07:52 PM

Agreed. But army standard is just one model as well, full of modeling opportunities. Plus it might get those who don't have one to actually make one.


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - Hammerhand - 10-23-2007 03:22 AM

Actually, I prefer the army standard idea too! nice one WM Cheers!


RE: The Golden Hat #3 Winner! - Ishkur Cinderhat - 10-23-2007 06:56 AM

Didn't we have that army standard thing already? Or was that on HoH?
