[Archive] Golden Hat #10 - Voting!


I hope everyone had an excellent Halloween! Please submit 3 numbers as votes by sending a PM to Golden Hat. We had 17 entries this time, which means 17 slaves will be heading your way, if you entered. I can hardly believe that the this small little contest has now made it to its 10th iteration! We have some stunning entries here, and I have a feeling the voting is going to be very tough! Decisions, decisions!

Keep up the great work everyone: your participation is what makes CDO awesome!

PM Golden Hat with the three numbers of the entries you like best!

And remember!

Additionally, when you cast votes you must vote for your 3 favorite entries. Your votes will not be counted if you vote for only 1 or 2! Each (more or less) anonymous entry below is numbered ranging from 1 to 17. After one week, we will post the results. All staff will have access to the votes if you have a problem with the voting or have questions as to how to vote, likewise, contact one of us.

There is no need to specify which one you think is 1st, 2nd or 3rd. Simply list the three that you like we will do the rest.

Note that entry 10 is a large scale sculpt.

(Entry #2 removed for rules violation. If you voted for #2, you may resubmit your votes)

<1 <3 <4 <5 <6 <7 <8 <9 <10 <11 <12 <13 <14 <15 <16 <17


Great standard, most of these would have stood excellent chances in previous competitions.


Awesome stuff here, this will be a hard time choosing a top 3 methinks. Great job everyone.


Great work, there are some awesome entrys here!

Yes i don't think it matters too much, if i remember correctly the rules stated that you can participate with something you have shown on the forums unpainted.


Cant believe that we only get to chose 3, its going to be hard to pick now as they are all to such a high standard, well done to every one and best of luck :slight_smile:

Gar Shadowfame:

but no 2 was shown painted on this forum, rules were against it


Has this been worth waiting for? oh yeah! Great entries, guys. Awesome, work - well done all of you :hat off

Now I’m actually glad I didn’t finish in time.

But as feared, tough to pick 3. Now, how do you compare a singel hero character to a Kollossus :~

Btw: What’s the deadline for voting?


Can you vote on your self?:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


Warh shamless slef promotion is something that I never expected from you :wink: But i vote for 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 Damnit I cant decide there all good well done all that have enterred,


haha i just asked:P

i probably vote for the lammasu,

but i cant decide the other two:~


First, compliments to the staff as you have been very fast! :slight_smile:

Second, I could be dumb but I cannot spot when the voting is going to end x.x

Third, I already have my winner, it’s amazing and… it’s not mine :expressionless:

Wish to get at least a medal this time… :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Clam: I already pointed out your point about comparing a single mini to a kolossus and I agree with you but it’s funny to be crazy sometimes…  I do not think larger is always better… try to judge converson and painting skills… you can see both of them even in single mini. :slight_smile:


remember to vote on what you think is best.

even if it is just a sleeping goblin;)


“After one week, we will post the results.”



Jesus christ!

This time the level of this competition rose to unprecedented levels. I actually drooled when I saw some of the entries. No need to say “good job everyone”… This is almost perfection :o

Border Reiver:

To all the competitors - you have definitely done yourselves proud - all of the entries are thematically wonderful.

Some made my jaw drop, others not so much, but the level of effort and care that people put in shows.


I’m particularly impressed with the variety of entries we had.  There were some concerns in the staff section that the huge variety of things people could do might put people off entering at all.  But looking at what we’ve got here it’s got plenty of variety.

2 duels

5 monsters/ mounts

A couple of warmachines

A large scale sculpt even!

A couple of regiments and a load of single minis.

Another successful golden hat, and those who entered (and those who didn’t quite finish in time) have more great models to add to their collections. :slight_smile:


All the entries are so killer sick but still I wondering I see some things there that i’ve seen days and days back on the site tought it wasn’t allowed to enter anything you have showed before :frowning: means I could just have finished my steam tank :stuck_out_tongue:

but damm some sick entries in there :slight_smile:
