Golden Hat XX Winners - Nicodemus - 12-09-2013 02:11 AM


Golden Hat XX - Open Theme

We had an excellent turn out of entries, with submissions spanning quite a range - from individual models, entire units, infantry, monsters, cavalry, to mini dioramas, and warmachines. It was great to see the fantastic work coming out of the Dawi Zharr forges!  No doubt many a slave gave their feeble lives willingly for such great and admirable entries Takes Hat off

And now, your winners!

<1st <2nd
<3rd (tie) <3rd (tie)

1st Place - Golden Hat Winner: Entry #8 - Fuggit Khan
2nd Place - Silver Hat Winner: Entry #15 - JMR
3rd Place - Bronze Hat Winner: Entry #2 - BABIS (tie)
3rd Place - Bronze Hat Winner: Entry #11 - Nicodemus (tie)


And an honourable mention to Entry #10 - Skink! (who trailed Bronze by 1 vote!)

As per the CDO contest rules, under the FAQ fineprint we clarified the rules for ties several years ago. Just scroll to the bottom of the post or do a find for "What happens if we get a draw?". The quick and dirty of it, if there are clear Gold and Silver medalists and a tie for Bronze, two Bronze medals are awarded.

The entry key!
You can share your love for each entry by donating slaves to the owners of the entries!

And now for the Big prizes:


I'll e-mail The Russian Alternative tonight and let them know who to expect an e-mail from. I will then send a PM to each of the winners with the e-mail they are to contact in order to supply their mailing address for The Russian Alternative to ship out the models directly. I have a couple of these models already, so I've decided to simplify the sorting of prizes and have removed myself from consideration.

As for the donated prizes.... C'mon down! Congratulations to:
Vogon you'll be going home with... a big hoard of bitz!
JMR you are about to be the proud owner of ... a blister pack of 4th ED Big Hat models!
DAGabriel, we're going to send you home with... a huge pile of plastic and metal Big Hat models, courtesy of Sticklander!

I'll leave it to the lot of you to sort yourselves out via PM for supplying mailing addresses and such.  Vogon, contact me!


A big "thanks" to everyone who participated and voted, as well as a big thanks to Fuggit Khan and Sticklander for their prize donations as well!

Can't wait to see the blog entries for everyone who participated Wink

P.S. A Big thank-you to Bloodbeard who made himself available at the drop of a hat (pardon the in-joke) to help select the random numbers for the prizes!.

The individual votes are all stored in the Golden Hat account, along with all entries (for every GH contest) and any staff member can check or verify data... just so that we can always avoid potential conflicts of interest when we have one member run a contest...

Along those lines - We don't post the voting key publicly, but if anyone is curious just PM one of the staff, as the voting key has been posted to the staff section of the site and any one of us can tell you how you did.  

There were certainly some surprises this time, as some of our veterans who have performed consistently well in the past either didn't win a medal or in some cases didn't get many votes at all (I was surprised at this!!).

Good competition, an absolutely fair fight. Two of my votes got in top 3. There are were so many great entries.

Thanks Nico, you did a hell of a job! Posts, answering questions, counting votes and getting the awesome prizes. Thank you!t
Besides that you are a gentleman - giving up your own prize.

I'm mostly curious about how many actually voted in total. I have no clue if it' 20 or a hundred. Would be cool to know. Especially since I know how few votes I was from the top 3.


RE: Golden Hat XX Winners - Zanko - 12-09-2013 01:48 PM

Congratulations to the winners! Takes Hat off

It was a great competition and now I'm looking forward to the next GH! Cheers!

RE: Golden Hat XX Winners - cornixt - 12-09-2013 05:19 PM

Everyone got at least one vote, which shows how spread the field was this time round, and with so many entries that shows how good they all were.

RE: Golden Hat XX Winners - JMR - 12-11-2013 12:19 PM

Wow! That's amazingly cool, my entry made 2nd place -and- I won one of the random draws?! Awesome!

Thanks to everyone who voted for my entry and many thanks to Nicodemus for organising this GH. It's been the smoothest run GH I've seen since I joined the forums. Well done! In combination with the generously offered prices, this GH has been one of the best ever.

Congratulations to the other winners too, 2 of the winning entries got my vote and Fuggit's entry well deserves first place.


RE: Golden Hat XX Winners - Goltor Lintrepide - 12-12-2013 12:24 AM

Congrats to all! There was so many wonderful entries!

Even if the subject matter was a bit undefined, it gave the opportunity to be very creative, and it was nice to see such variety in the entries.

Bravo again to everybody and our 4 winners!

Edit : I'm gonna be there next time Tongue Wink
