At long last, the 19th Golden Hat competition is here!
This one is a big one! The K'daai Destroyer! In case you don't know, K'daai Destroyers are massive constructs fashioned into the form of mighty warriors or iron beasts, such as gargantuan monstrous bulls and other nightmarish creations, awakened by mass blood sacrifice and set loose upon the enemy! Your task is to bring one of these to life! With the release of the Chaos Slaughterbrute, there are definitely a bunch of great models on which to base a Destroyer conversion. Let your imagination run wild! For those of you who are already in the process of converting a Destroyer, you may enter them in this contest, provided they haven't been painted yet!
We realize we are a bit off track of our usual contest schedule. Sorry for this. We may run an Artisan's Contest along with this Golden Hat to try and catch up. Stay tuned for news on that. But for now, down to business.
Subject: 1 K'daai Destroyer on a 100mm by 150mm base.
Bases: Diorama style bases are allowed! 100mm by 150mm is a lot of base to work with and a Destroyer ought to be an army's centerpiece. No Display bases or plinths, though, please.
Due Date: 11:59 PM May 21st, 2013 EST (Eastern Standard Timezone)
Please sure to read the complete Golden Hat competition rules before submitting your entry.
All entries must be sent to the Golden Hat account no later than the due date. Entries will not be accepted after this. (Entrants have ~6 weeks to complete entries). If for some reason you are having trouble with your submission, contact one of the Staff. In order to avoid problems, entrants should not wait until the last minute to submit their entries.
How to Enter
Upload up to 4 photos of your entries to the Internet. Photos may not have additional text or items/models unrelated to your entry. Next, send a PM to Golden Hat (a special user that all Staff have access to) containing the links where the pictures can be found. (Note: This is the same as previous Golden Hats).
If you win:
- Walk across the backs of the cowed masses you have scorned and pushed aside, in order to take your place in the vaunted Golden Hat Hall of Fame.
- Receive the Golden Hat medal for your online persona (As with previous Golden Hats; if there are more then 10 entrants the silver and bronze Golden Hat Medals will be awarded as well).
- Everyone who enters gets a number of slaves equal to the number of entries. If 20 people enter we award 20 slaves to each person who entered. Entries will count towards a veteran medal.
Once all entries are received a thread will be created for voting and determining the winners!
If there are any questions it is best post them here so that everyone can benefit from any details or clarifications that may arise.

|For the 6th time in the history of CDO its time to take a step back and consider those that have contributed to the cause of Chaos Dwarfs in the year just past, 2012 namely. For those not in the know, every January we look back at the year gone by and start accepting nominations for awards as voted by the members of Chaos Dwarfs Online.|
At stake is the recognition of your fellows and the 2012 community award medals (yet to be created... hint, hint Xander). These medals are one of the most coveted medals that one can win as it is voted on entirely by your peers based on your conduct on the site. No other medal on the site is dependent on your actions and standing amongst your peers. As such only 5 are given out in one calendar year.
So with all this now is the time to get your nominations in. REMEMBER: As in years past this is only for achievements in the year 2012. Anything that has been achieved in years past other than 2012 is not counted for nominations.
The categories for 2012 are unchanged from previous years and are as follows:
Best Attitude - A member should be nominated on their forum presence and behavior toward other members, displaying exemplary attitudes of kindness and encouragement.
Best General - This member is always ready to give advice on army lists, has very good lists of his own, and perhaps has won a tournament or two using his Chaos Dwarf army.
Best Hobbyist -A nominee for this award has contributed an amazing model, or models that exemplifies what a Chaos Dwarf army should look like: flawless execution of conversion and painting while adhering to the Chaos Dwarf mythos.
Best Contributor - This award will go the member that has contributed most to the cause of the Chaos Dwarfs. He or she has done or made something that has profoundly benefited the presence of Chaos Dwarfs as a whole!
Best Overall Member - This member may not be the best hobbyist, might not ever win a tournament, but he or she has a great presence on the site, the forum, the wiki, the chat and whatever else! They are dedicated to the cause of the Chaos Dwarfs!
What to nominate for?
I encourage you to supply the reason for your nominations. If you can't think of who to nominate for a category, do some research. If you don't know who the best general should be for example, take a look at the Gaming section of the forum. Who's been posting battle reports, tactic and helping others with army lists? These should help you come up with a nominee.
How to Nominate
PM your nominations to Staff (a special user that all Staff have access to).
NOTE: You can only nominate one person per category. If you can't decide which one, flip a coin!
Nominations should include this:
The contribution that should be recognized and why they should be recognized.
As in the past the nominations will be tallied and ranked. The top 3 members for each category will then be sent a pm asking them to accept or reject their nomination. If they accept they will then become an official nominee.
If a member rejects the nomination it will be offered to the person with the 4th highest votes, and so on. This may mean if a lot of people reject nominations, or there are not enough people nominated in a category there may only be 1 or 2 people to vote for (or potentially none).
If a person does not reply to the pm we will work on the assumption that they want it and it will automatically be accepted on the behalf of the Staff.
We will not tell people how many other nominees there are, nor will we reveal who the nominees are prior to the next post that announces the official voting.
The final nominees' names will then be prepared in separate polls for all to vote on beginning in February. After this there will be a 2 week public poll to decide the winners.
The deadline for sending in nominations is 11:59 PM EST (eastern standard time) February 5th, 2013. This gives a solid 2 weeks to get nominations in and prepare the polls.
Note, any members with warnings outstanding will not be given the opportunity to accept a nomination. We will not discuss any of this with the community at large as this is only pertinent to the Staff and the member(s) in question.
The Staff CAN be nominated, HOWEVER, they must not be nominated for their staff-related duties. For example, Willmark could be nominated for his work on "X", but not for being excellent at moderating the forums. This way we are all on fair ground. We are dealing with what we offer the forum as members, not as staffers.
If you have any questions, just ask any of the Staffers! Send your nominations in as soon as you can!
