Golden Hat #9 - Willmark - 05-06-2009 09:14 PM



Welcome to the 9th Golden Hat competition of Chaos Dwarfs Online!

By popular demand the Staff are pleased to announce the following competition for the 9th Golden Hat miniature contest:
Create a Bull Centaur!

Subject Matter
Create a Bull Centaur

So what do we mean by this?

Create a Chaos Dwarf single miniature themed on a 'Bull Centaur'.

Unlike some of our Golden Hat themes there are several ways you can interpret this.  So you can make:
- Bull Centaur Lord
- Bull Centaur Hero (can be a Battle Standard Bearer if you wish)
- Bull Centaur (a command model if you prefer)
- A 'Bull Centaur' themed special character.

I have tried to leave this as open as possible within the theme, so if people want to create something completely new they can.  Remember of course that we will all interpret the 'Bull Centaur' theme in a different way, so hopefully our entries will not all look the same!

Basing
In the past we may have insisted that a model like this should be based on a game legal base.  For this one (and maybe more), your entry can be based based on a circular display base if you prefer (up to 50mm), a cavalry base, or maybe even a 20mm x 40mm base (Wink).  Doing it this way opens it up to really show off more about your model, but (being a single miniature) it cannot be in combat with anything else on the base.  Bodies incorporated into the base etc are ok.

Particulars
Due Date: 11:59 PM 29th June 2009 EST (Eastern Standard Timezone)
Subject Matter:  Create a 'Bull Centaur'

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 29th June 2009 (Eastern Standard Timezone). Entries will not be accepted after that date and time regardless of how cool your submission is. (Around 8 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 previous Golden Hats; 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.

Do this "something completly new" means that I can do something thats not a Bull-body/dwarf torso creature - like boar centaurs, spider centaures ect. - or could I even do some kind of cavalry looking figure - like a dwarf riding a cool monster? as long as I keep it on a 50x25mm base?


RE: Golden Hat IX - furrie - 05-07-2009 04:51 AM

I have the same question as clam, if the answer is yes I have a very cool idea for the comp Tongue


RE: Golden Hat IX - Thommy H - 05-07-2009 04:59 AM

Well the competition is for a Bull Centaur... Clue's in the name, guys.

Well as said I'm stupid - but to me it says 'Bull Centaur' and not plain Bull Centaur. The plings could indicate that 'count as' would/could be accepted. In danish that is of course.

So for the non english guys here - can it be a bit more accurate? Can it be a count as BC model? - or shall it have a bull body/dwarf torso?


RE: Golden Hat IX - Thorne - 05-07-2009 06:54 AM

Cheers! today I begin what I have wanted to do for such a long time. Today I begin my Chaos dwarves ! (starting with the bull centuar that is)


RE: Golden Hat IX - ryanamandaanna - 05-07-2009 09:50 AM

Ugh.  I just finished a unit of 5 Bull Centaurs...  I guess now I have an excuse to work on a Hero...


RE: Golden Hat IX - Pyro Stick - 05-07-2009 10:36 AM

Ill just be entering a normal Bull Centaur as ive got about 7 needing painted up. I would have preferred this to have been for more than one Bull Centaur though.

Register - 6 more times then - and you can enter all 7 Wink


RE: Golden Hat IX - Zanko - 05-07-2009 11:27 AM

May Hashut bless my work - count me in! Takes Hat off

The "stupid" German has also a question ... Wink

can we use a "normal" Bull Centaur model or must we create a complete new model from different bits?

             Hashut!


RE: Golden Hat IX - Hashut's Blessing - 05-07-2009 11:55 AM

Mwahahahaha. I have two to make (well, 6, but two to make for this) and so I have double the chance of not winning Big Grin Of course I can only enter one, but it;s a case of choosing between classic character or self-made (idea stolen elsewhere) unit command? Well, we'll see which I decide is more worthwhile.


RE: Golden Hat IX - Tarrakk Blackhand - 05-07-2009 12:17 PM

I have made my Bull Centaur Battle Standard Bearer @ 3 weeks ago, but haven't painted him. (Remeber my You Tube video?)

I'm not sure why there's a June deadline, but hopefully I can get a digital camera by then and get some good photo's off. At least there's that opportunity!

I might also start another Bull Centaur, but I hate the idea of customizing my last 2 Grudge Ponies as I was going to keep them for a Dwarf Mine I was going to build for some instore gamming. I also guess I'm going to have to write off my last (for sale) box of Dwarf Warriors. Oh well....I think I'm the only guy playing them anyway!Big Grin

@ Clam....I think the best way to answer your contest question is in Danish : Jeg Vill De Ikke! Big Grin

The actual theme is a 'bull centaur'.  So a spider centaur does not really fit into that theme as well as something on 4 legs.  A boar is a little more open to interpretation, as some people may feel a lot more comfortable using that as a base for their entry.  I wouldn't want to stop these people from entering if they consider it to be a bull centaur.

A CD mounted on something is not a centaur.  Unless he happens to have no legs, and his mount has no head ... Wink

The 'completely new' part of that was intended to allow people to create a robotic/ daemonic bull centaur etc if they wanted to without feeling that they would not be allowed to enter it.  Some people may do upper bodies with an actual bull head etc.  The main thing I wanted to achieve with this theme is to open it up so people did not feel they HAD to stick to the 'traditional' image we all associate with the Bull Centaurs.

So stick to the 'bull centaur' theme; something involving bulls and preferably on bull like legs.

You could do a spider themed bull centaur simply by doing 4 mechanical legs that ended in spikes.

I have seen a BC lord in the past that was the size of a giant!  Although I increased the base size to allow for scenic bases, I think people should bear in mind that an entry this big may not score as highly as others.

If anyone was looking for inspiration, I just had an idea (not the one I will be using).  What about a Bull Centaur Sorcerer!  It would be considered a themed lord/ hero or a special character.  If you did him rearing up you might even be able to get away with 20mm x 20mm base and treat him as a regular sorcerer to be ranked up.


RE: Golden Hat IX - Tarrakk Blackhand - 05-07-2009 01:00 PM

Hmmm...a reversed Bull Centaur....makes me think of that Red Dwarf episode where The Cat was telling Rimmer that he wanted to meet a Mermaid that had the fish head on top and woman's legs on the bottom because the girl on top, fish body was boring!


RE: Golden Hat IX - Kera foehunter - 05-07-2009 01:40 PM

so a cow centaur would be out ????


RE: Golden Hat IX - Ishkur Cinderhat - 05-07-2009 01:40 PM

Aw this is a tough one.
Hmm... it would give me a chance to try a new take on my bull centaur design, though! ^^

What kind of a base is 20x40mm? Shock

Well there are more ways than one to make a bull centaur... not just deity interventions.... lol.. a nice cow centaur could be so cute...

woot!!! I was a little apprehensive about entering the artisans comp, but this one shouldnt be an issue, so my first golden hat aspirations.. definately gives me reason to start crack'in on the ole'bull centaur idea.

looking forward to the fun.


RE: Golden Hat IX - Thommy H - 05-07-2009 01:45 PM

It's one that's about 20mm by 40mm. GW don't make one like that of course, but if one were to theoretically come into existence somehow I guess it would be okay.


RE: Golden Hat IX - Sojourn - 05-07-2009 01:54 PM

what about... a bull centaur UNICORN!? eh? eh? Wink

I doubt I'll enter, CMA in full gear, but I KNOW I'll vote Wink super excited guys.


RE: Golden Hat IX - Kera foehunter - 05-07-2009 02:01 PM

Come on sojourn!!!! now that would of been the winner!!!


RE: Golden Hat IX - Hashut's Blessing - 05-08-2009 02:02 PM

A cow centaur is simply a female bull centaur and so I think we'll allow it Wink Mind you, we all know that if at least one comes up, one of them will be Kera's Big Grin

Sojourn, if you're BC's have single horns, that's fine Big Grin


RE: Golden Hat IX - Kera foehunter - 05-08-2009 02:30 PM

well if everyone knows it mine !! i have a good chance of beating ishkur !!!!!


RE: Golden Hat IX - TwilightCo - 05-08-2009 02:53 PM

Eh, why not. They are the only troop type I DON'T have in my army... which I should take pictures of. Rats, I still have tones of them to draw too.  Sad

From what I know, Bull centaurs have a lot of tackle that cow centaurs would be missing, and cow centaurs have a lot of features thankfully missing in bulls, soooo....

If these were Bovine-centaurs, I would agree, but the competition is for BULL centaurs and if species are regulated by this motion, then so should gender... And if gender is not an issue, then we should allow cross-species centaurization as well....

After all, its not like this is an extension of GW Canon for Chaos Dwarves anyway; the last GH and the recent Artisan's Contest was anything but...


RE: Golden Hat IX - Hashut's Blessing - 05-08-2009 03:00 PM

Bull-centaur IS the species, a cow-centaur is, presumably, a female of it, otherwise it's a slang term for one. That's my reading of it, anyhow. The staff shall discuss and decide.


RE: Golden Hat IX - Kera foehunter - 05-08-2009 03:44 PM

no!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the contest will be over before the staff could decide this !!
i do a bull its ok!!


RE: Golden Hat IX - Grimstonefire - 05-08-2009 05:20 PM

'Bull centaur' is like having 'beastmen'.  There is no mention of the female of the species.  I agree a Bull is not a Cow, but I doubt we would make this a seriously unbalanced competition to allow it.  Just remember to include udders. Wink


RE: Golden Hat IX - Hashut's Blessing - 05-12-2009 04:11 PM

Thanks GSF, I just wanted to make sure I wasn't assuming the opinion of the other staff members, but we're agreed now it seems.

Bull Centaur is the race for the purposes of this competition, not the gender.


RE: Golden Hat IX - tjub - 05-13-2009 04:43 AM

If not able to beat last GH, I do hope we get atleast 15 entrys. Shouldnt be a problem since there is alot of good BCs on CDO! Happy


RE: Golden Hat IX - kerbak - 05-13-2009 11:22 AM

Takes Hat off This a very good oportunity to end my unit and make a New hero...

i saw a question but no the answer) on.. do we have to create Bull centaurs, or could we make some conversions in a classic Bull centur??


RE: Golden Hat IX - Tarrakk Blackhand - 05-13-2009 12:51 PM

GRNDL - I work in the cattle industry and I have heard the truckers stories of them getting charged by female cattle. I didn't know before, but they can charge too and be equilly damaging!

RE: Golden Hat IX - Hashut's Blessing - 05-15-2009 05:01 PM

Right, still need to find a suitable weapon for my pre-made BC and then paint it. Also, I need to get work on my unit of them, so I can alternatively enter one of those... However, I do have a while, so I may be able to take some more time. As always, I don;t expect to win, but I'ma enter for the fun of it Big Grin


RE: Golden Hat IX - centauro enano - 05-17-2009 02:40 PM

I do not feel involved then, good luck to all Cheers! Cheers!

I would only post your entry in your blog after voting is finished.


RE: Golden Hat IX - Kera foehunter - 05-19-2009 06:43 PM

also  do not post on other sites  please !!


RE: Golden Hat IX - Hashut's Blessing - 05-20-2009 08:05 AM

Well, thus far, I have not looked for a weapon for the traditional BC, but I HAVE nowofficially begun work on the self-made bull centaur Big Grin It looks like this could be fun :p


RE: Golden Hat IX - Schlanger - 05-20-2009 04:32 PM

I believe I can't enter with a bull centaur which is in my army blog, even if it is an unfinished one there? Should be totally new and never seen before/ Right?

I'm in.


RE: Golden Hat IX - Hashut's Blessing - 05-20-2009 06:42 PM

It's preferable to have it new/unseen. It's also beneficial to you as it means people haven't already begun to form an opinion. it simply brings everything onto a more even playing ground.

Well im going to enter a bull centaur that there are probably unfinished pics of in my blog. But im just painting up na original so its not that big a deal and i have stripped a lot of my bull centaurs since the last pics of them were taken probably.


RE: Golden Hat IX - Schlanger - 05-21-2009 04:05 PM

so, before I start- it can be a monster on monster base, a piece of machinery, a hero, a cavalry model, anything that has no rules for, but on a base from 20x20 to 50x50 and having a hoofed bestial body and humanoid torso, beard, and dwarven style. And it should be something from the warhammer universe. Right?

I think the general consensus was that it also has to be bovine in appearance as well, at least bull centaur themed.

Mechano-udders...


RE: Golden Hat IX - Hashut's Blessing - 05-26-2009 02:59 PM

Schangler, it must be able to be recognised as being able to be called a bull centaur, whatever your interpretation of that may be.

On that note, I finally began work on mine about 5 days ago, but haven't had the chance/time to continue since. May do so tonight though Wink


RE: Golden Hat IX - furrie - 05-27-2009 11:44 AM

I still need to find time to start this thing Tongue


RE: Golden Hat IX - Arashi - 05-27-2009 01:18 PM

I will not be able to participate in this one. Sadly, because I really wanted to try a bullcentaur Sad


RE: Golden Hat IX - Gundini - 05-27-2009 10:37 PM

Of course, a Pirate-ninja-cow-centaur-zombie-vampire-male-heroine would be hard to model.

I regret that too but releasing new Moscals is pretty time consuming and to build bull-centaur I'd have to sacrifice one of models I often use for gaming Wink

RE: Golden Hat IX - Hashut's Blessing - 06-11-2009 12:49 PM

I need to get back to work on this. However, I kind of need some shoulderpads, which I have none of since I'm at my girlfriend's house. Looks like I'll need to do some greenstuffing then Wink

RE: Golden Hat IX - dedwrekka - 06-11-2009 06:07 PM

Can we send in photos that contain close-ups of parts within the photo?

Such as this one of my Chaos Dwarf Lord:

It turns out that I managed to get mine finished and I'm very proud of it, even if it gets no votes!

RE: Golden Hat IX - Ishkur Cinderhat - 06-15-2009 01:48 PM

Sadly I won't be able to participate in this one. I haven't yet had any cool ideas for a BC character and time is almost up to be able to realize a proper entry now. I'll just save all my creative energies for GHX! Takes Hat off


RE: Golden Hat IX - Snotling - 06-15-2009 06:21 PM

I'm forsaken by Hashut, so i won't be able do finish my BC in the next two weeks. to study sucks, no time for the cool stuff ^^. the good thing is, when i had hopes to joint the contest, i finally started my BCs... before i was too lazy to build all the parts...


RE: Golden Hat IX - tjub - 06-18-2009 02:59 AM

Tada, my entry is painted and varnished... Big Grin


RE: Golden Hat IX - Skink - 06-18-2009 06:51 AM

Wow, can't wait to see what you guyz came up with! It seems that this time it will be a HUGE competition! So sad that I haven't decided yet a design for BCUnsure


RE: Golden Hat IX - Hazkar - 06-20-2009 06:46 PM

RE: Golden Hat IX - Willmark - 06-21-2009 08:17 PM

RE: Golden Hat IX - Xander - 06-23-2009 11:50 AM

I should power through an entry, lol.  Or at least convert something. Hrm...


RE: Golden Hat IX - Willmark - 06-24-2009 08:47 AM

I might have time to get mine shot and in for this, perhaps tonight...


RE: Golden Hat IX - Grimstonefire - 06-24-2009 05:10 PM

I will have to skip this one.  I started something a few weeks back and got about half way through, but I've been rushed off my feet and busy trying to finish my golden daemon entries asap.  Maybe next time.


RE: Golden Hat IX - kefas - 06-24-2009 06:49 PM

Im afraid I'll finish one hour before ending time Sad lots of work! lots of gs :>


RE: Golden Hat IX - kerbak - 06-25-2009 02:12 PM

RE: Golden Hat IX - kefas - 06-26-2009 04:45 PM

RE: Golden Hat IX - GRNDL - 06-26-2009 07:23 PM

I'm not even bothering. The Golden Hat has drained enough of my soul already!!! BAH!!!

RE: Golden Hat IX - Pyro Stick - 06-27-2009 11:08 AM

My entry is about 95% complete. Just need to glue it together, finish a few details and take some pics which i will send tomorrow.


RE: Golden Hat IX - chipie_ambrosia - 06-27-2009 08:01 PM

Hi,

I would like to participate on this. I have my boar centaur sculpt/conversion 90 % ready. It only has to cure. Do I have to paint it as well? Shall I take pictures of the process as well?


RE: Golden Hat IX - Ishkur Cinderhat - 06-28-2009 04:37 AM

Hi there chipie! Yes it has to be painted so better get going because you only have one day left till deadline. Wink You don't have to take pictures of the WIP, but it may be interesting after the contest to see such pictures.


RE: Golden Hat IX - Willmark - 06-28-2009 09:58 AM

Indeed you do and please send them into the Golden Hat user account, that all Staff can access goldenhat


RE: Golden Hat IX - Pyro Stick - 06-28-2009 10:31 AM

Entry sent. Finished it just in time as ive got to go away for a few days.


RE: Golden Hat IX - chipie_ambrosia - 06-28-2009 09:02 PM

Hi,

still painting. How much time do I have exactly till the deadline, because I can't find a converter to Eastern Standard Timezone. Here in Hungary we have CET. Am I right that I upload the pics e.g. to my homepage and send a PM to the Golden Hat account with the link to my pics. Any restrictions about the size of the pics? Or type? Is jpeg okay? What additional information is required?


RE: Golden Hat IX - Tarrakk Blackhand - 06-29-2009 03:29 AM

Got my entry finished! I was at a Tattoo Convention selling stuff from my store, Monster Hobbies.

I came home and finished the final details and picture taking/uploading.

I sure hope that "Golden Hat" gets it in time!

Please let me know!


RE: Golden Hat IX - clam - 06-29-2009 03:31 AM

EST is GMT -5 hours, so I would say deadline for us CETs is the 30th at 06.00 a.m. - but daylight saving time could change that a hour or so.

We don't have restrictions on size as Xander/Willmark will edit them and merge them together nicely - for reference try look at earlier GHs entries.

.jpeg should be fine and just upload them to a hosting site and then just PM the Golden Hat-user the links to your 4 pictures (max).

And last - welcome at the site Wink Looking forward seeing you entry Big Grin


RE: Golden Hat IX - chipie_ambrosia - 06-29-2009 07:58 PM

Finished and sent the PM. At last I can get some sleep.


RE: Golden Hat IX - kefas - 06-30-2009 12:15 AM

my entry time 11.55 P.M. uffff I menaged put my entry before end. It was really close! I find out about this competition two weeks ago!
actually I made decision near 2 weeks ago and I had 10 days to finish it. Short time but  did it! I didn't have a time to make properly photos Sad


RE: Golden Hat IX - clam - 06-30-2009 05:02 AM

So we have passed deadline - so how many entries? - did we beat the record??

Looking forward to see what all you guys (and maybe girls too) came up with for this one!


RE: Golden Hat IX - Tarrakk Blackhand - 06-30-2009 12:44 PM

Well, I hope my entry made it to the GH mailbox. I think all the staff went for summer holidays!


RE: Golden Hat IX - Willmark - 06-30-2009 12:49 PM

Nope. Some staff have been verY diligently working on a lot of stuff, often behind the scenes. Happy Right now best bet if you need someone is to get ahold of Wallacer, Grim or I for fastest response.

In terms of the Golden Hat... WOW! looks like 18 entries tying Golden Hat V for second most entries. So right there everyone will receive 18 slaves at the end of the competition.

The entries are awesome and there are some damn impressive ones. Excellent work all around everyone.

Ive been away for a few days and was hoping that the voting thread would have opened already but i guess with all the entries it can take some time to edit all the pics. Cant wait to see all the entries though.
