Much as the Golden Hats are part of what the staff have organised, we are not the only ones that can organise contests. Wink

I feel it's a shame that some people don't want to enter this, but anyone so inclined could start another painting contest to run at the same time so you can take part in something.  It would not be staff run, or with medals, but it could be challenging nonetheless.

I don't want to ruin it. It will be a fun thing, very low expectations. I haven't even mentioned it to the rest of the staff. I was planning a reveal at the end of summer but things overran at work so I didn't have time to oversee it then (or yet)

Yeah, headed down to GW tonight, so I might get something then. REJOICE! This may be the first competition I actually spend money on rather than just cobbling s*** together!


Madness? THIS IS... Well, maybe it isn't Sparta, but it's still pretty awesome.

So....can I build a Temple to Hashut for this competition if i wanted to? It said that Terrain wouldn't be allowed....or is this something different?

I think that having "No theme" is a bit better in some reguards. It makes it more of a "bigger" contest than just a contest with all Bull Centaurs or Hobgoblins or what have you.

However, I think that if the contest is going to be wide open with many catagories, then having a "First, Second and Third" overall won't be good. That would mean that a bull centaur competes agains a diorama.

Instead, the models should be grouped and then there should be multipule 1sts, 2nd's and 3rds for each catagory. Therefore bull centaurs will be judged with Bull centaurs and dioramas with Dioramas.


Amaze your friends when you post your Chaos Dwarf model pictures on our forum at http://www.monster-hobbies.com today!

Whatever your final entry is at the deadline is what will be counted. Wink  It allows people to improve their photos etc as well if they feel they need to.

@tarrak
As long as the temple has models as part of it like a diorama then yes.  If they are just sitting on it on their bases, or it's in the background then no.

RE: Golden Hat #10 - Closes 31st OctoberPyro Stick 09-19-2009

Could this GH please have its deadline extended to the 30th of November? It calls for seriously big entries that a lot of people who want to enter probably wont be able to finish in the time allocated, so i think because of the nature of the contest subject the deadline should be extended. I know that i for one will not be able to finish my planned entry in the time available if i get the job im applying for and im going away for a week in the last week of october. By keeping the deadline the same as a normal GH you will be seriously cutting back on the number of entries in this contest.

You see, now we are talking. Thought I would personally have liked to see deadline extended to something like 31. December instead - now that would give most of us a fair chance doing something spectacular.

31st of december would be good as well but i would have thought a hell of a lot of people would be preoccupied with new year/christmas etc to be thinking about entering a painting contest.

With Christmas, 2 kids  Birthday's and new year - I would concider being on of those presccupied persons - but will have to finish the week before Christmas, then. Would still have liked to see a 10 or 12 week deadline with a theme like this.

RE: Golden Hat #10 - Closes 31st OctoberGrimstonefire 09-19-2009

I would say extending it more than a couple of weeks is unlikely.  If we extended it until the end of december the next GH would be 2 months later than usual.

November/ December is usually a very quiet time for forums, hence us putting an artisan's there. Wink

The ways of our Mods are past understanding - when it comes to the subject of GH.

They want a grand, outstanding, big#10 - but not willing to give the contenders time to actually fulfill it - because of ... a hypothetical deadline of a futher contest - not even announced yet. You guys really have a strange way of thinking (IMO).

But like Pyro S said: 'so what'?

@Ishkur
Something that can't be fitted on a 20x20 base Wink

My bigest problem with this GH is the fact that I have a demanding job, a house, wife and two kids, so I'll have something like 20-30 hours within a 6 week time frame. That's perfect for a single miniature or two.

- but I think this calls for something other then a singel miniature - to force you to do your absolute best to win this one, too. But you are obviously not interested in that, I see (can't blame you, though) Big Grin

A yes, think we are back where all this started (for me), that this theme: 'will only favour those who have already started something or those who have way to much time one their hands'.
