Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Grimstonefire - 01-09-2009 01:08 PM



Welcome to the 8th Golden Hat competition of Chaos Dwarfs Online!

By popular demand the Staff are pleased to announce the following competition for the 8th Golden Hat miniature contest:
Create a warmachine!

Subject Matter
Create a Warmachine

So what do we mean by this?

Create a Chaos Dwarf themed warmachine that has at least two crew members.  To make this clear, it can be any of the known warmachines; Death Rocket, Earthshaker, Bolt Thrower or Hellcannon.  OR you can create a completely new warmachine!

If you create a new warmachine it doesn't have to represent any of game legal machines so you can make up some house rules for it if you want (don't include these with your entry though, you won't be judged on this).

You must include at least two crew members.  The machine should be themed towards Chaos Dwarfs, but you can have a hobgoblin or slave crew if you want, perhaps even a bull centaur and something else.

Some examples of the more unusual things people could make are flying warmachines (with at least 2 crew), or even an iron golem style creature with 2 crew herders.  Creating something new can be refreshing from time to time.

Crew members can be mounted on it, on a scenic base, or on seperate bases.  

There are no size or basing limitations, only your imagination is the limit!

Particulars
Due Date: 11:59 PM 28th February 2009 EST (Eastern Standard Timezone)
Subject Matter:  Create a warmachine

What is the deadline?
Once again same basic premise as previous Golden Hats; send all entries to the Golden Hat account no later 11:59 PM 28th February 2009 (Eastern Standard Timezone). Entries will not be accepted after that date and time regardless of how cool your submission is. (Around 7 weeks to complete your entry).

If for some reason you are having trouble with your submission, contact one of the Staff. in order to avoid problems. I "highly advise" that entrants do not wait until the very last minute to submit their entries...

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:
- Rightly take your place in the Golden Hat Hall of Fame, where your glory will be remembered for years to come.
- Receive the Golden Hat medal for your online persona *
- Everyone who enters gets a number of slaves equal to the number of entries. If 50 people enter we award 50 slaves to each person who entered.

*= As with GHV, VI and VII: If there are more then 10 entrants the silver and bronze Golden Hat Medals will be awarded as well.

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

RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Kera foehunter - 01-11-2009 02:36 PM

War machine  that different well i give it a try since i have no war machine done !!


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Obsidian - 01-11-2009 02:45 PM

Hmm, not what I hoped for but I think I'll give it a try. Nice to see we can invent stuff! Cheers!:

Only six weeks, hmmm...


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - al-hashut - 01-11-2009 04:22 PM

It'll be tricky but i'll see what i can get done


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Loki - 01-11-2009 04:50 PM

Looking forawrd to taking part in my first golden hat , good job i ordered that hell cannon last week, good idea guys Cheers!


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - AGPO - 01-11-2009 05:12 PM

Shock But... but... this rules out whirlwinds and tenderisers!!!!!!


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Grimstonefire - 01-11-2009 06:21 PM

Yeah, I started the thread on the 1st, then left it open for staff to make changes.  When you move it the date stays the same.

@AGPO

No it doesn't!  I said two crew minimum.  So you have the boar/ bull centaur 'driver' and another crew member (CD/ hobbo/ slave) just sitting on a 20mm base nearby!  Simple.  Or you mount a snotling 'crew' onboard, or drag a slave 'crew' along behind etc.

I was very careful when I wrote the rules to make sure people could still do things like this.  It's why you can mount the crew on the machine, on a scenic base, or on seperate bases.

Just because it may not look like a traditional tenderiser (with the additional 'crew'), if you keep it on a seperate base there's no problems if you plan to use it afterwards (not that it has 'official' rules anyway).

I should really finish my hellcannon, but I am tempted to do an earthshaker.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - furrie - 01-11-2009 06:43 PM

i started creating an earthshaker for this comp, i just need to buy some stuff tomorrow, so i can finish the basic shape of the barrel :p


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Willmark - 01-11-2009 08:39 PM

I have an idea, I bought parts and I am assembling them no that's all I'll say, mwwwwwaaaaahhhaaaaaa!


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Hammerhand - 01-11-2009 08:46 PM

I have a couple of ideas, now where is the bits resource thread......

I'm definitely in!Happy


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Sojourn - 01-12-2009 01:54 AM

oh.... *puts aside carefully sculpted CDO members....* this is cool..........

man, I dunno if I'll get this together in time or not; or if I can even come up with an idea. Definitely not my forte =S

BUT, I can't wait to see what other people get done! Happy sounds like there's some positive feedback already based on who wants to participate! *excited!*


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Revlid - 01-12-2009 04:44 AM

Since this is a painting competition, I assume it doesn't matter if we've already converted the thing before the competition began?
This is a perfect excuse to get started on my Doomblaster!

Also - I totally called it.

Ohh! wait - I then have - like 6 or 7 classic models that could be use then. Thank you for that, my Lord Big Grin

No.  We discussed it and overall we decided it's better to only allow one entry per person.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - clam - 01-12-2009 08:15 AM

One is totally fine with me Big Grin

And with the project I'm planning on I have plenty to do within the 28th.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Obsidian - 01-12-2009 10:42 AM

And I thought Clam would just paint his way cool scratch-built Earthshaker! Wink

Either I am converting something new or if time doesn't allow maybe a classic warmachine.
But honestly I don't have any inspiration at all! Sad


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - furrie - 01-12-2009 11:31 AM

I got an awsome idea last night, so scratch build, unless off course time doesn't allow it, then I will finish an older project


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Pyro Stick - 01-12-2009 11:49 AM

Im torn between three possible entries, one from each of the three era's of chaos dwarfs. I will just have to finish them all and then choose which one i think looks the best.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Bassman - 01-12-2009 01:45 PM

Said that I have no time before leaving for USA... I'll be back the 21st of february. Shock
One week only? I can do that this time Hashut!
Be the might of Hashut with me!!! Hashut! Hashut!


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Willmark - 01-12-2009 01:48 PM

There seems to be a high level of interest in this Golden Hat! Awesome, let's see if we canbeat the record for most enteries in a GH; 16 I believe in GH V.

Though about it too, but I wouldn't enter it - for two reasons:

1) You have already seen almost everything of it. So there is not much new to show really. So if I had to paint a piece of old news, why not something that looks old too - like some 3rd ed stuff Wink

2) I have decided that 2009 is the year for painting (that means painting something already bought and build). So '09 is going to be the year were I painted my classic chaos dwarf collection - and build that mechanical dragon Big Grin Hey wait a minute - I see it clear now: 'GH IX - Mounted Tyrant'


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - centauro enano - 01-12-2009 07:16 PM

Good news, I would like to participate, if they get more free time to try something

I think even *I* participated in that one. lol, the gaoler competition?

this sounds so fun though. I must discuss with Xander as to whether or not my idea is sufficient/possible. hehe

Got ya there, the wow-factor would also be less and people would know exactly who's entry it is. Spoils the fun of guessing allright! Wink

I'm still hoping I'll have the time for this. it coincides PERFECTLY with an essay I've just been given lol Tongue

Sojourn, it certainly was the one ya entered Wink

As for people's styles, I might have to go a little mental then, eh? Tongue

Wel, well, well I just noticed there is my death rocket in Golden Hat VIII banner!! Mad

I wanna credit, slaves and a little hat as a reward! Or I'll call my layer... ok well maybe not Happy

RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Vasquez - 01-14-2009 07:13 PM

I was reading the rules for the GH8, and as I read the four examples of warmachines ("Death Rocket, Earthshaker, Bolt Trrower or Hellcannon") I started wondering what a Colossus counts as? Is that also a possibility to make a such, or is it categorized as something else?

RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Obsidian - 01-15-2009 08:03 AM

No, it's chips here in the Netherlands too! Wink

RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Abyss - 01-15-2009 11:42 AM

RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Willmark - 01-15-2009 11:56 AM

Alright everyone this is sounding like the best participation we have had or will have, remember 16+!


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - maelzch - 01-16-2009 08:41 AM

dependant on how me moving into my new place this weekend goes, i may well be up for this one, I've got two possible ideas in mind.

Cheers,

RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Pyro Stick - 01-16-2009 11:05 AM

Im assuming the juggernaut counts as a warmachine?


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Ishkur Cinderhat - 01-16-2009 02:20 PM

Juggernaut = siege tower = war machine.
Sounds like flawless dawi'zharr logic to me! Respect to the Hat!

As long as the chaos dwarf juggernaut has two of more crew it qualifies for the contest.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Zanko - 01-16-2009 04:30 PM

I´ve also a nice idea!  Cheers!

Something new, I hope!Cheers!

So long ... Hashut!


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Willmark - 01-19-2009 07:27 AM

Made tremendous headway on mine this weekend. Still quite a bit to go but the basic structure is now in place.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - furrie - 01-19-2009 08:26 AM

I realy need to speed up a little Tongue


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Obsidian - 01-19-2009 08:51 AM

I think I'll need more time! Wink


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Willmark - 01-19-2009 11:22 AM

Time is not one thing we have on this however.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Obsidian - 01-19-2009 12:38 PM

If only you guys anounced this contest sooner! Rolleyes Tongue


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Willmark - 01-19-2009 12:49 PM

It was a only a week difference really; as to the why, I could tell you... But you know the rest! Wink


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Obsidian - 01-19-2009 01:01 PM

RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Hashut's Blessing - 01-20-2009 11:57 AM

Borador, we had 15 members enter one GH and that is our record to beat. It's not an age limit Wink So get building!


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Willmark - 01-20-2009 11:58 AM

There were 16 entries for Golden Hat V our record, we want to see more them that! Nothing to do with age.   Happy


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Hashut's Blessing - 01-20-2009 12:10 PM

My apologies, thought it was 15 Wink But yes, let's beat the record. Pulp it, smash it, grind it, WARMACHINE IT!

RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Onii One Orc - 01-20-2009 12:57 PM

that sounds like lots of work. if you have the spare time, maybe I can have you do most of my GH entry, and I can add some feminine touches at the end *read ivy and floral patterns, and nice CD shoes Wink)


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Borador - 01-30-2009 01:54 PM

I don't have enough time i think :O
Just recieved my order of 2 Epic Pulsa Rokkits, but still gotta mold the rokkit, duplicate it like 20 times and then build the entire thing :O
so don't think I can make it Sad


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Zanko - 01-30-2009 03:20 PM

The work goes on!  Happy

I hope my minis which I auctionend at ebay will arrive as soon as possible!

I´m eager how the finished warmachine will appear!  Takes Hat off

                                         Hashut!


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Obsidian - 01-31-2009 09:17 AM

I think I'll need another week to finish converting atleast. Then paint the damn thing...

*sigh* need time! Tongue

I can't feasibly see how a kollossus could crew a hellcannon...?  I doubt they're very good at fine tuning/ loading. Happy

I'm not sure if you could call them skirmishers being monster sized?  There's nothing in the rule book as far as I know on warmachines being crew in their own right, but I don't think ogre sized creatures or larger can be crew?  Would be a tricky one to make a call on if each of them had a CD pilot.

If you want to do a kollossus you should make only that IMO, with 2+ crew on it, on a scenic base or separate bases.

If you do seriously want to do something like that pm one of the staff and we will have to discuss amongst ourselves.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - furrie - 01-31-2009 12:42 PM

I still need lots of converting to do Sad, but I will try to finish it on time


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - demi_morgana - 01-31-2009 02:11 PM

RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - demi_morgana - 02-02-2009 09:40 AM

hmmm... on the other hand last evening I reminded a never-finished (actually never-started) project I made up when I was still playing warhammer fantasy battle so any chance I still can participate?
of course If I manage to finish whole thing on time Unsure


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Obsidian - 02-02-2009 10:03 AM

As long as it is a Chaos Dwarf warmachine then I see no reason why not.
You still got untill the end of this month.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Pyro Stick - 02-02-2009 10:17 AM

Im probably going to be cutting it close, between working on COTT2 and this as im still waiting on important parts from Viskar but as you all know he has been in hospital so they havent arrived yet.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Obsidian - 02-02-2009 10:43 AM

Sorry to hear Pyro, hope they'll be in on time.

Going to cut it real close myself too, letting it drop yesterday (broke in half) doesn't help at all! Sad


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Xander - 02-02-2009 11:20 AM

As long as I stay on track, I should be able to finish. Happy

RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Borka - 02-08-2009 04:44 AM

I'm in, as a CDO:er I feel I have to contribute to the 16+ Big Grin. I started working on an earthshaker today. This is going to be fun I think, I have some pretty nice ideas.

RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Grimstonefire - 02-08-2009 12:07 PM

Incase I am running short on time I think I will paint only 2 crew to start with, then paint the machine, then if I have time paint the 3rd crew.  A few fiddly bits on mine keep slowing me down Sad  I keep seeing all the bits I thought I'd leave until the end...


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - demi_morgana - 02-08-2009 12:14 PM

RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Revlid - 02-13-2009 04:40 PM

More or less done modelling the crew, and I've undercoated the machine itself. Time to get painting, I guess.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - cornixt - 02-13-2009 05:19 PM

I guess I'd better get cracking this weekend.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Revlid - 02-15-2009 09:26 AM

Setting up a checklist here to motivate myself.

FINISHED:
Most of the Doomblaster itself.
Most of one crewmember.

UNPAINTED:
Two crewmembers.
Doomblaster wheels.
Doomblaster bellows.

UNMODELLED:
Details on one Crewman
One Crewman's hands+barrel
Doomblaster lever
Bases!


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Willmark - 02-15-2009 10:22 AM

There is some great stuff in already everyone lets get cracking an make sure you get your entry in on time.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - furrie - 02-16-2009 03:52 AM

Things to do:
- sculpting the latest things on the warmachine.
- finish sculpting the third crew member.
- painting everything.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Obsidian - 02-16-2009 04:48 AM

Did finish sculpting the warmachine and painting is 25% done. Crew is halfway converting/sculpting.

I can do this! Tongue


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Ishkur Cinderhat - 02-16-2009 03:11 PM

Warmachine: 80% sculpted.
Crew: 15% sculpted.
Time check: still 12 days to go. More than enough time. Happy


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Zanko - 02-16-2009 04:38 PM

I´m really eager to see all the sculptured and painted minis ...

RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Grimstonefire - 02-16-2009 05:37 PM

If anyone gets the chance, make sure you take some pics before painting as well so we can see all the work you did after it's been judged.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - demi_morgana - 02-17-2009 01:46 AM

RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Borka - 02-17-2009 11:49 AM

RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - cornixt - 02-18-2009 09:32 PM

I'm half done, but it isn't turning out as good as I hoped. I might not be able to reimprove it in time though.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Revlid - 02-19-2009 01:53 PM

RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Borador - 02-21-2009 01:10 PM

Any chance there will be another GH of this caliber? I like the warmachine theme, but since  don't have the time to create one now, I just wondered if something like a GH for flyingmachines or something is planned.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - tjub - 02-21-2009 01:14 PM

Id like to see one for characters, wont take as much time as a warmachine... Wink


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Canix - 02-21-2009 01:28 PM

I know we've done one for Rykarth the Unbreakable, and at least one previous one for lords/heroes. Maybe revisiting a previous topic would be good.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Tarrakk Blackhand - 02-21-2009 02:17 PM

Got mine done in 1 night! Now I just have to paint it and the crew.

I made a Dwarf Death Rocket Launcher using Evergreen Sheet Styrene, Plastruct Rod, Chaos Shields, and some other GW parts and small parts from some garbage electronics I have around the house.

Looks good!


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Pyro Stick - 02-21-2009 03:22 PM

Im slowly getting an entry put together but its going to be cutting it close. I would say im 60% done.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Borador - 02-22-2009 04:51 AM

Well, mabye I can finish it in time, only thing is that if got to work really hard then XD
And hard work ain't my thing ^^
If I can make it in time I'll surely enter.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Liam the Marxist - 02-22-2009 07:49 AM

I am about 3/4 of the way there, just a couple more days should do it.

RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - furrie - 02-22-2009 09:54 AM

RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Groznit Goregut - 02-22-2009 10:03 AM

I'm quite interested in seeing these results.  I've been thinking how I don't like the old Earthshaker cannon and I am hoping to see something new.

Also, I think this contest is a good way to promote new ideas for Chaos Dwarfs since there have not been any new CD in a while.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - demi_morgana - 02-22-2009 10:18 AM

RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Hammerhand - 02-22-2009 03:26 PM

not started yet.  the free time i was supposed to have never actually materialised and I don't have enough time to do it any justice now.  Why is work always busy when GH is on?  It's as if they know man - look forward to my entry about 2 weeks after the deadline Sick


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Tarrakk Blackhand - 02-23-2009 12:34 AM

Got mine finished. Just going to work on a base for these guys. HEY! These are actually the first CD's I've compleated! Thanx!

Additional info at 2:16 AM...

MY GUYS ARE DONE! MY GUYS ARE DONE!

Think I'll make a quick You-Tube Video as well.

Additional 4:45 AM - I sent PM to moderators. Please let me know if you got it.

I finished mine a few days ago. TRUST ME! You CAN'T relax! Big Grin

I want to post mine because they're the first set of CD's I've done, but then it's not fair to the contest and i don't want to be disqualified. So I'll just have to be itchy for a while yet. Big Grin


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Hazkar - 02-24-2009 05:30 PM

RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Borka - 02-24-2009 05:42 PM

yeah baby! I will finish in time Happy

I have only one tiny detail left, but I need your help guys. Does anyone around here know if greenskins have green or red blood? Ten slaves to anyone who can give me an aswer with an official quote (like a story in an armybook or something similar) Big Grin

cheers


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Swissdictator - 02-24-2009 05:44 PM

Should be logical that they'd have Green Blood as they spawn from plant life.

Hazkar - I feel your pain. I think I might finish painting my figs that are NOT going to be in the contest. My warriors. I'll see if I can get them done in the next few days.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Obsidian - 02-24-2009 06:36 PM

Hmm, GW always paints Orc blood red as far as I remember...

There was a story behind this told by Andy Chambers once but since all my old White Dwarfs are at my dad's house I can't look it up for you.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Tarrakk Blackhand - 02-24-2009 06:42 PM

Paint the blood black. It always looks more horrifying when I do that in Silent Hill.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - WhyNotCrashDifferently? - 02-24-2009 06:57 PM

"An enormous orc turned to face him. A look of surprise froze forever on its face as Gotrek lopped off its head with one mighty stroke. Ruby blood spattered the Trollslayer's body."

From Trollslayer by William King.

"As an Orc ages, its skin becomes scabby, gnarled and even more impenetrable, to the point where the most determined sword stroke can cause only a scratch. If the skin is pierced and the purplish-red blood begins to flow, there is no guarantee that the wound will prevent the Orc from pulverising his opponent."

From the Orc and Goblin army book.

I've read descriptions of them having both green and black blood as well, though I can't remember where. Just pick whichever you prefer, I guess.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Hazkar - 02-24-2009 07:14 PM

wow,so many colors just for blood?crazy


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Tarrakk Blackhand - 02-24-2009 07:20 PM

RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Revlid - 02-25-2009 07:22 AM

Finished painting the warmachine - I'm having some trouble sticking the wheels on, but that's not an emergency. Yet.

As for the crew, I need to do the hair, skin, leather, and glass. And metal. :/

FINISHED:
The Doomblaster itself.
Most of one crewmember.

UNPAINTED:
Two crewmembers.

UNMODELLED:
Bases!
THE GODDAMN WHEELS ARGH WON'T STAY ON

RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - GRNDL - 02-28-2009 11:27 AM

I believe she's referring to Clam's request for affirmation that his entry has actually been received in spite of the errors he was getting from the website.

Just check your Sent Items to confirm that your entries were delivered. Happy
http://www.chaos-dwarfs.com/forum/private.php?fid=2

I often send confirmations if they are requested in the PM. Happy


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Revlid - 02-28-2009 09:27 PM

Finished.

I sent in my entry at 10-11 ish, and then had to resend it a few hours later because I stupidly sent six images instead of four (compilation images are a no-no).

Now, I wait - I'm happy with my entry beyond words, and safe in the knowledge that even if I don't win anything, I get the compensation prize of having seen AT LEAST three entries more awesome than mine.

Bring on the voting thread.

Sent a new, proper private message. Rule noted and filed for future non-screwuppery.

RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Golden Hat - 03-01-2009 05:27 AM

Xander here...

I think there are 28 entries.  I have formatted 16 of them... I've been working hard to make them look as best I can within the traditionally defined space.

But alas, it's 4:30am here and I must break for sleep!  Sorry to all my European friends! I am going to sleep for about 7 hours, and resume the work!

Sorry for the delay!


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - clam - 03-01-2009 05:50 AM

A massiv 28 - that's way more like it. Great work guys and girls. It will be so hard just to get in the top 10 Happy

Looking forward to see them all - sleep tight Wink


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Swissdictator - 03-01-2009 05:52 AM

RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Ishkur Cinderhat - 03-01-2009 06:39 AM

OMG Shock 28! How many points will we be allowed to give? ^^ I have a feeling we might not be able to decide this in one round.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - clam - 03-01-2009 06:51 AM

Yes, 'we' might have to just narrow it down to something like 5 or 10 - and then do a second round to find the winner.


RE: Golden Hat #8 - Painting Competition - Kera foehunter - 03-01-2009 07:03 AM

I'd hate to build somethign and find out it sucks. Anyway, that's just negative thinking on my part. At least this will be a real benchmark for me.
