"... and the heavens shall be swathed in darkness and lit by lightning and balefire; and the ground shall crack and quake and roar to let forth the flaming bowels of the earth; and those mighty turned to stone shall wake to walk again; and the slave shall turn upon the master, and the dead shall turn upon the living; and everywhere order shall turn into Chaos; and crops shall fail and plague shall reign; and works shall be shattered and lands shall die; and the lords of the world shall clash, and gods and mortals alike shall slay each other, and horrible wars shall rage and even titans shall fall. These shall be the signs of final doom, and by them, all shall know that the End Times are come..."

Subject Matter: Chaos Dwarf of the End Times
For this Golden Hat contest we want you to make a single
Chaos Dwarf End Times-styled miniature! A character on a titanic mount (in true End Times fashion) will count as a single model. The rule here is one model on one base. Extra miniatures on that single base, such as fleeing or trampled enemies, swirling fire Daemons or Daemonforged familiars, are allowed, though they shall not overwhelm your entry and steal too much attention.
Let your imagination run wild within the above limits! The End Times supplements have introduced new units, new or updated monsters, and new or updated special characters, most mounted on big monsters. The scope is big and the aim is epic. To help inspire ideas, here's a list of but a few of the possible creations that could be entered into the competition:
A revived petrified Sorcerer-Prophet. A monstrous infantry or monster-sized stone, obsidian or mechanical idol Colossus. A Chaos Dwarf Loremaster of Undeath on a mechanically bound Zombie Dragon. Astrogoth or a Chaos Dwarf monstrous infantry model in a steam-driven megasuit of armour. A Daemon Prince of Hashut. An Undead Lamassu with rider. A character shooting Warpstone metorites.
Korakagrakk, mounted atop a lava beast. A lone Sorcerer-Prophet riding a platform for sorceries and sacrifice, built upon a giant Iron Daemon. A Chaos Dwarf character mounted on a titanic K'daai Destroyer, full of flames. A giant bull of molten metal. A Sorcerer-Prophet busy casting spells, standing atop a giant pillar carved with fresques and runes. A sorcerer surfing on a possessed lava wave. A Bull Centaur temple guard leader with ensorcelled equipment.
Feel free to make something which will work as a unit from Legion of Azgorh in your army, example given: Astrogoth on a mechanical Bale Taurus, counting as a K'daai Destroyer.
If you are unsure if your entry will fit the subject matter, please contact Admiral or Bloodbeard and they'll sort it out with the rest of the Staff.
Basing is up to your discretion with the following exception: Display bases and plinths are not allowed, though diorama style bases are. Also, models must be based on a square base of appropriate size already used in Warhammer Fantasy Battles.
Subject: Single Chaos Dwarf End Times miniature, mounted or not.
Bases: One base only, otherwise up to your discretion. Must be based on an appropriate sized square base already used in Warhammer. Diorama style bases are allowed! Large models mounted on e.g. 100mm by 150mm bases have a lot of base to work with and ought to be an army's centerpiece. No display bases or plinths, though, please.
