I just checked my PMs.

I dunno Kyte.  The contest is supposed to inspire new creations... it's not really for entering models you have already made...

It's a tough choice for sure. There are a lot of good models here.

For me it came down to either #8 or #1, either model I'd be proud to call my own (as I would their creators' respective armies actually), but I voted #1 in the end for its originality.

I did also want to mention that the wooden handle (of all things) on Entry #7 came across as being especially well painted. I hate painting wood. The rest of the figure is also very well painted and it may actually be the best based figure out of the 10.

So many great conversions/paintjobs here Takes Hat off- but I have to chose only one - wright?Wink
It's nice to see so many new ideas how to represent the hobbos - and #1 and #7 are really great examples of this "new look", but they are not hobbos - just beautiful gnoblars and gobbos-slaves IMO - sorry!

I will also vote for the classic mongul wolf rider. #8 is exactly how I always have pictured a Wolf Riding Hero and the paintjob is brilliant preformed. And definitely the best GW wolf I have seen.

I look forward to hear how this convertion was made!

RE: The Golden Hat #3 - Voting Threadcornixt 10-02-2007

Now that I am sure that I won't win, I'll post my mini-blog of my entry.  I never expected to win but I didn't want to influence the voting at all.  There are some astoundingly bold entries, some of them look almost sculpted from scratch and outside the competition they would be getting huge amounts of praise.  Other ones have relatively simple conversions that worked very effectively.  The effort that went into all of these deserves a beer at least!  In the end I went for #7 because it is much closer to how I'd like my Hobgblins to be.  I'm sure that if something other than a Gnoblar head had been used then it would have received a lot more votes.  The shading and highlighting are wonderful, the pose is great.

It's always a small shame that the top 3 entries get 95% of the votes, not matter how well done the 4-6th entries are done.  Might be nice to see how the entries would have done if people marked them out of 10 like on coolminiornot.

Mini-blog of my Hobgoblin Hero for Golden Hat#3

Part 1 - Construction
Finished the sculpting on Sunday, giving me a week to paint it.  The base model is an ordinary BFSP night goblin with a bow.  I replaced the bow in the left hand with a shield from a Desert Dog since it was the smallest shield I had - bigger shields just looked odd - sculpting a handle for him to grip onto.  I completely replace the right arm with the commandar arm from the plastic Dark Elf box, cutting the sword down.  I chose this arm because the hand was closest in size to the right hand, goblin hands look huge in comparison.  Only after I had stuck it on did I realise that the left hand is actually a lot bigger than the right, it just isn't noticeable because the hands are so far apart.  I sculpted a bit of armour onto the left arm to match the right.  The normal feet were completely removed and I sculpted on some new ones.  I had orignally planned to make the shoes a bit pointier but I guess my sculpting skills don't stretch that far at the moment.  The quiver on his back had the arrows removed and replaced by a dagger, and the hood was turned into a traditional Hobgoblin hat.  In total it took me four greenstuffing sessions to complete, and I used the surplus (there is ALWAYS a surplus) each time to finish my neglected blunderbussers, mostly done while watching Family Guy and South Park (just 50 episodes left on my DVR to see...)

Part 2 - Painting
I didn't manage to get hold of the paint I wanted so I used what I already had.  I had intended to paint his skin an orangey-brown to mark him as a Hobgoblin as opposed to a Goblin.  Unfortunately, I couldn't get any paint of the right colour and it was hard to mix what I had into the right colour.  It would also mean I'd have to repaint all my current HG models, which I don't fancy - especially if I can't mix the right colour for just one model.  So green he is.  I've gone for an almost classic GW Hobgoblin colour scheme, the light brownish clothing and red hat.  Armour under the clothes is hinted at by the metal on the arms.  He looked too plain so I planned to add detail on the edges of the clothes, but ran out of time.  Finding a colour scheme that matched the rest of the model was difficult.  Too much red could be overwhelming so I had to make it more subtle.  I origonally had lots of gold but it really didn't suit the beige clothes so I had to repaint that, and the clothes had to be repainted because the brown wash I put over it made it far too dark.  This meant I had to repaint 90% of the model in the last two days, and had almost no time to base it.  Plus I have very little time each day for painting as it is.


Part 3 - Finishing Touches
The base would have been the standard light green that the rest of my greenskin related armies have, but I can no longer get that shade in a form that covers well (the manufacturer waters it down so much now that it takes at least two coats).  Bestial Brown covers really well and matches well as a contrast colour so I might go back and redo the edges of all my other CD models I have converted so far.  
I've named him Wazgab the Skinna, using my own name generator programme (more on that soon).  

Conclusions
I would have added a sash if I had more time for sculpting.  I have to be more patient when sculpting, so many times I would finish one part and move onto another, only to squash the part I had just done.  In this case I didn't really have the time for patience though!  I took some pics of it before painting but only a couple turned out okay, but these weren't in the best positions, and I forgot to try for some more before painting.  My white paint was not responding very well to the moist air here.  Despite now living further from the coast than ever before, the humidity is so much higher.  I'll have to adapt my (admittedly rusty) technique if I want to paint my hordes.  The black works much better though!  The GW employees here undercoat using the grey foundation paint then put a single coat of Skull White over the top - if undercoating with just white you need at least three coats to get a consistant shade.  As if I'd ever do a High Elf army anyway...

The extra height he gained from new feet and standing on a rock made him taller than the other BFSP Night Goblin models that I will be using unconverted as Hobgoblins (except for handweapon conversions and a HG colour scheme) but he is still a little short next to the 4th/5th ed HGs.  Got some new paint for the rest of the HG unit so it should be pretty quick once I start.

Overall I am pleased with his stance and the conversions I did to him, another week of painting would have helped with making him stand out a little more, rather than him just looking like a standard Hobgoblin, but I would probably have started a week later anyway.  I will spend a bit more time on him once I've got the HG unit done so he can be used as the unit leader and look like one.  Maybe some horns added to the hat, more decoration painted on.

That would be a good idea i voted for 8 but all are really good and deserve a mention for being wonderful takes that fit really well with there creators armies.
For my very simple conversion i ended up posting an earlier WIP picture because after another days painting i just couldnt get a clear pic(after over 30 attemptsShock) using a tripod too!

Voted 8 too.

He really looks like an arrogant son of a...hobbo.
The sculpting is great and the painting looks really crisp. I also quite like the backbanners.
And the pose of the wolf is just brilliant, like he's lurking for some prey.
Gotta love that squig-bunny though Takes Hat off.
You can see the quality of the entries improve every competition.
Congrats to all entrants!

First, to all of you, great models. Nice work, well done!  

For me, it was either #1 or #8, both really nice modells with a lot of inspirational ideas.
But then, finally, I voted for #1. Mostly because my girlfriend forced me to do.

I was torn, like so many of you between 1 and 8. In the end I chose 8 because a) It looks like my idea of a hobgoblin khan of the steepes and b) The reposed wlf and quality basing really makes the model look superb
