Artisan's Contest XVI
Welcome to Artisan's Contest XVI!
Displaced Chaos Dwarfs
The theme for this Artisan's Contest is to create anything Chaos Dwarf-related that shows Chaos Dwarfs displaced from their usual setting. Let your imagination go wild here! Have you been wanting to create Satan Claus on his daemonic sleigh being pulled by a flaming taurus? An evil stunty Dr. Who feeding slaves to his daemon-powered TARDIS? Polo playing Bull centaurs? A unit of Slaanesh-worshing Chaos Dwarfs? Ogres that look like Chaos Dwarfs (been done, but don't let that stop you)? Undead Chaos Dwarfs? A Chaos Dwarf version of the iconic HeroQuest characters? A Brony/Bull Centaur cross over (shudder)? Or, perhaps you just want to create something as quaint and picturesque as a Chaos Dwarf in his art studio making something Jackson Pollock-like out of entrails? Well now is your chance to do that and possibly go down in CDO fame by winning ACXVI and getting a medal at the same time!
This contest is unrestricted in terms of scope - it can be a single model, a diorama, a piece of terrain, an entire unit, etc. The minimum requirement is that there be at least one Chaos Dwarf-themed model (so a Chaos Dwarf, Bull Centaur, or something that looks like one of these... which could include Goblins with axes and beards, for example) that the model(s) must fit the theme/scene/character/sport/story/place/etc you are trying to convey. It is entirely up to you to figure out how to achieve what you're going for and we won't turn any entries away or be rules laywers about your interpretation of how to achieve this.
The very nice people at Dark Art Studios has been so kind to donate their new model Goretrek the Chaos Dwarf as a prize for the winner!
The miniature is limited to 100 castings, comes with a letter of authenticity - this price is marked 1 of 100.
A very big thank you to Byron Townshend and Dark Art Studios for providing this fine price!
The deadline for the submission of entries is January 13th 2015 at 11:59pm EST.
Only enter if you are happy with the rules as they are stated:
Rules of the Competition
Each member may only enter once.
Each member may submit anything they like, as long as there is at least one Chaos Dwarf/Bull Centaur model, based or unbased (plinths, display bases, dioramas, etc are all fair game, so no restrictions).
Submissions should include four pictures. No overlaid words of explanation or photoshop effects in your submitted photos please. They have to speak for themselves.
No posting of entries in the forum until after the winners of ACXVI have been announced, and you can't have shown any of the pieces in their finished form elsewhere before.
How to Enter?
Submit your entry by sending a PM to Staff (a special user that all Staff have access to) with four photos of your entry. Please do not send PMs or e-mails to any of the admin or staff accounts as this is a sure fire way to have your entry missed.
Please note that your entry will benefit if the photos are all clearly composed, since voters will base their judgement upon what they can see in the pictures on their computer screens.
How will this be judged?
By the mid-January we will post all entries to a new thread and voting can commence!
Good Luck everyone!
