RE: Golden Hat XXIMadHatter 09-09-2014

I believe the contests are the wheels that carry the community forward. I believe it keeps the veterans with complete armies in the hobby and sparks creativity and sets a goal for new members. Personally I'm honored to be able to enter a contest at this high skill-level, normally I wouldn't be allowed to even compete... To win a Golden Hat medal of any value would be awesome, it's on my "things to do in life" list, but I don't expect to. Since I joined this january I havent met even one member I've even slightly disliked... Amazing CDO, truly amazing. I just want to be a part of all of this as the community has become one of the good parts in my otherwise quite rough life. Each and every one of you a gem, keep it in mind.


May your hat be tall and your beard ever coiled.

It is definitely that I enjoy trying to create something.   If my basic skills are improving, it is only because the GH, Artisans and the old Brush Slave comp's have drawn me further in and pushed me to try more with greenstuff and other substitutes for store-bought items.

I can only agree with all above! Wont be entering this time either though, was too focused on the troops and didn't feel the need for any more slaves right now... The official contests spins the wheels at CDO. Happy

@Malorndk: There are actually a medal for participation. Its the "veteran" badge, which comes in bronze, silver and gold afaIk.

Yeah I know. I named the participation medals as one of the reasons I want to apply an entry. It's weird how much work one is willing to put into some pixels and internet points on an online profile xD

You are all in trouble now. I've bought a real dry-brushing brush instead of using an old one that looks like a toy troll dolls hairdo.

I love to take part for the challenge. Like some form of medieval/Brettonian tourney, except with models!

I also really enjoy looking at what everyone else has produced. It's a shame some of the links to the older Golden Hats galleries are broken, because I like to look at them from time to time.

According to this rumor robin williams played chaos dwarfs. http://www.40konline.com/index.php?PHPSE...msg2160900

I wonder if he frequented or lurked on CDO, a great man, loved all his movies.

I met him quite a few times over the years at local San Francisco area toy/collectible conventions...he was an avid collector of 19th century tin soldiers. Last time I saw him was at least 6-7 years ago, so I have no idea if he continued collecting tin soldiers over these past recent years, but it's not surprising that a collector of tin soldiers might also be interested in gaming miniatures as well.
He was incredibly nice and outgoing, he'll be missed.

Sorry to see that "Raven.."

Starting to get stressed now.   Just had to recheck the deadline as my home computers broken and it is what I normally use to resize the photos from my camera.  Not to panic though as other options are available just not as easy.

Give others a worthy chance of wining - very noble of you Ravenswood. Joking aside: I'm sorry you didn't manage to get an entry done.

I just managed to finish up a model today! Wuhuu! The last week I've literally only managed between 5 and 10 brushstrokes a day. Everything from now is going into perhaps adding something extra to the entry.

RE: Golden Hat XXIAdmiral 09-21-2014

I'm sure they were all good attempts, though, Ravenswood. When painting at your superb standard it isn't strange if one or two month deadlines prove hard to adapt to, especially for larger stuff like warmachines. Here, have some slaves and better luck next time! The next time we have a single-model contest I'm sure you'll manage to enter and win a trophy. Wink

Notice: I will check all submitted entries before deadline, and send out verification PMs. Just like we did with Artisan's Contest XV. We don't want any mystical technical error to stop people from participating, so this is a simple double-check.

Studies and an upcoming tournament might delay this somewhat, but I'll start with the task by Monday the 29th of September at latest. If you do not receive a verification PM before the deadline is reached, please contact me or any other Staff member, and try re-sending your entry to the Golden Hat Account.

And... best of luck, folks! Cheers!
