And I supose you could make a small 3rd ed style mortar, swivel gun, bazooka. Small weapons, quick to misfire, used to send in with the waves of slaves.

Or a juggernaught pushed forward ny slaves, while CD are protected inside.

And once there was a hobgoblin rocket launchers. Those china style rockets on a stick.


Bolt Thrower and rocket launchers are artillery. Happy

Contest rules updated. Inclusion of Bull/Boar Centaurs treated as counting toward Chaos Dwarf roof. Teams of warmachines explicitly allowed. Maximum amount of Chaos Dwarfs/Centaurs raised to one extra per warmachine after the first one. Note that the focus for this contest is still on the slaves.

What are the allowances concerning big beasties? For example, having one pull the artillery.

No limits whatsoever. Enslaved Snotlings, Orcs, Minotaurs, Giants, Arachnarok Spiders - you want it, you grab it! The sky is the limit, as long as you keep to the theme and the few restrictions of the contest.

Pack/draft animals of any kind are naturally also allowed, but we thought it could be confusing to mention it in the text.

Don't hesitate to ask me via PM if your planned entry will make the cut. It's safest. Should there be any "issue" I'll talk with the rest of the staff. The rules have already been modified, or indeed improved, to allow for some people's most ambitious entries. Wink

I'm curious how everybody is coming along on their Golden Hat entries? And hopefully plenty of you are entering?
The more the merrier Cheers!
I'm off to a rather slow start, and I've already changed directions 3 times, each time wanting to make something a bit bigger. I'm just going to have to fight the urge that 'bigger is better', otherwise I'll never finish it...anyways, hope everybody's project is coming along nicely Takes Hat off

I decided to finish my august paint pledge (the iron demon) before starting Golden Hat. I hsve to finish the Iron Demon omin the weekend to have a fighting chance.

I've decided to make my primary entry idea a secondary one, downsizing to something else. Otherwise I won't habe anything ready.

Good luck eveyone.

RE: Golden Hat XXIAdmiral 09-03-2014

Good luck folks!

Contest rules updated. Monstrous warmachines allowed on one condition: They must be accepted my me (and the rest of the staff if necessary), since the line between monstrous warmachines and plain monsters can be hair thin. See first post for further details.

Remember that the focus of the contest still lies on the slaves, and having your warmachine as more Daemonic monster than machine can open some interesting conversions for the slave crew, such as slaves goading it with bait, or even getting loaded into the monster cannon.

RE: Golden Hat XXIBloodbeard 09-09-2014

Today I started painting my GH contribution. It's a relief to have started on that part of the project. Sitting painting I've been thinking about two things.

1. What motivates you guys to enter Golden Hat? First I thought I enter because I don't want to miss anything. But I actually ended up with another reason. I know it's unlikely I'll win, because there are some insanely talented painters and sculpters in the community. But knowing that pushes me to really rise above my current skill level, wanting people to go "wow. That's a great idea! I might put a vote on that". And that is why I join Golden Hat - because it makes me better. A medal would of cause be super cool. Why do you join?

2. I will never ever speak for a wider theme or a change of competition rules after the launch of it. I spoke for a widening of the theme - to not only include artillery slaves, but just something slave themed. Never again, part of the challenge is to fit something into the theme - even if a bit narrow. And I end up making way to ambitious plans anyway, now sitting back with something relatively small. ... Never enough hours in the day.

Yeah I agree I find the limitations to be part of the challenge. It also makes voting easier when all the models are the same thing.

My reasons for entering are pretty much the same as yours...I think it gives me an opportunity to try and improve my skills at something that perhaps I would not of had modeled/built in the first place...or at the very least it gives me some motivation to tackle a new project/idea now, instead of putting it off with the old "one day I'll get around to that idea" excuse. Golden Hat is a great motivator to keep things new and fresh in the Dawi Zharr world...a huge thanks to staff for getting these contests up and running.

And I also prefer not to request for widening the scope of the contests...yes, I welcome extensions on the deadlines (because I am damn slow), but I love the challenge of coming up with something new within the original stated theme. And all for the same reason I stated above: it helps me to improve my skills outside of my 'comfort zone'. Limitations on the theme forces me to try harder, and I like that Takes Hat off

But the biggest reason I like entering in Golden Hat is I enjoy being part of the community here, joining in with my fellow Dawi Zharr to (hopefully) contribute some idea's with others...I always feel like I get more out of this great forum than I contribute Cheers!

RE: Golden Hat XXIMalorndk 09-09-2014

I won't make an entry this time, but I'll speak my mind anyway Happy

1: Why would I enter?
To be a part of the community is key on CDO. We are such a small community, that we need each other's opinions and enthusiasm to stay motivated against all odds, whether it's hatred from other player, bad reputation at tournaments, badly worded armybook or ridiculous ebay prices. At the end of the day, I simply NEED to read some army blogs. Skink is my paintmaster, Tjub is the consistent entertainer, Bloodbeard is a warmachine artificer and Fuggit always deliever the exact feel that got me started on CD. I NEED Tommy H to write rules and show me a good concept is playable in a friendly environment, and I NEED Willmark to absorb some divine powers and live for eternity without disease, while throwing Word of Hashut out to the public. Baggronor NEEDS to finish his grafic novel, while Ravenswood owe me a battle standard bearer to stand beside Bezhukk. In such a little community we have to take care of each others motivation, so that we in turn can get motivated by others creations. That is why everybody should enter Golden Hat. I don't care who wins the actual medals. Even sloppy entries can spark my imaginations, and good ones can send me hellbound toward the workstation. For every entry CDO wins.
Also: Participation medals!

2: Widening the theme.
I think it's a good idea to have somewhat open themes, as they allow for more fun and ideas.

3: What is keeping me from entering?
My greenstuff abilities sucks so much D that I am immensely embarrassed about it xD
But since I understands the importance of a supportive community, who participates in the website events, the real reason is usually time.

Well written, Malorndk. A proverb came to my mind:
The journey is the reward.

I`m a member of cdo for a relatively short time but it`s definitely different from other forums in a positive way.
