1st: Grimstonefire
2nd: Clam
3rd: Abyss
4th: Ishkur
5th (Tie): Pyro
5th (Tie): GRNDL

Exceptionally close voting for 3rd, Abyss edged Ishkur by 1 vote!

Congrats to Grimstone who not only wins the GHV medal, not only gets enshrined in the Hall of Golden Hat Fame, but a nice spiffy White Dwarf Presents: Chaos Dwarfs from Bloodaxe!

In closing: round of applause for all, especially the site and foremost to Grimstonefire, well done and well earned.



congrats grimstonefire! this will be your first medal and certainly deserving. more than alf of the voters must have voted for you so its certainly deserving, although it was very tight in the end!

and its nice to finally see whose entry belonged to who


Your telling me Torn, counting this was anything but fun!

Lord Archaon:

Congratulation Grimstonfire, Clam, Abyss, Iskur, Pyro and GRNDL! :cheers

Ishkur Cinderhat:

OMG almost made 3rd! :o I would never have thought that, with all these great entries. Congratulations to all who won a medal, well deserved! I was also quite pleased to see the big hat faction very strong in this contest, with a lot of very cool models. :slight_smile:

Kera foehunter:

congrades to the winners :cheers:cheers

i had a great time


This was the most infuriating GH to count the votes, between the staff I think we must have done it at least 7 times :slight_smile:

Well done to all those who entered.

My first medal!  I won’t need to enter any more now :wink:

Seeing as I already have a copy of WD Presents: Chaos Dwarfs, I offer this to 2nd place.  So Clam if you want this it’s yours!

I love your new avatar Willmark!

Pyro Stick:

Congratulations everyone! Wooo i voted for the ones that got 1st, 2nd and 3rd! I guess 5th place isnt so bad considering its my first Golden Hat entry.


Phew, am I glad that’s over! The anxiety in waiting was getting to me. Now at last, there is catharsis.

Conga rats to all the real winners! Now I’m going to look forward to the detailed posts about their methods, construction, etc.

(and steal all your secrets!)

(especially Warplockmonkey’s!)

(who, it turns out, I voted for even though I didn’t know it was his entry)

(curses Warplock)



what is interesting is that vexxus managed to get more votes than his much more chaos dwarf experienced brother lol

i wonder if that is going to be brought up around the table at thanksgiving :stuck_out_tongue:


GREAT STUFF!! awesome work from everyone ,some great ideas and colour schemes in there congratulations to all :hat


It’s not uncommon that I lose out to Vexxus. In a GW painting contest, I placed 2nd to his 1st with a Chaos Champion conversion. So it’s nothing new to me. :stuck_out_tongue:

Plus, he is very experienced with Greenskins!

EDIT: Gold, Silver and Bronze Hat medallions have been awarded. :slight_smile:


jesus don’t believe i managed 3rd with the quality of all the other entrants, and to edge ishkur of the podium by just one vote, i really am honoured… i was execting to be much further down the rankings. well done though grim, you definatly deserve it as your entry was a cut above the rest. well roll on the next golden hat i say, we all know what we’re capeable of now

Ishkur Cinderhat:

I’d say now is the time for you to get a proper Xandatar™, abyss. Your Golden Hat entry will make a nice one! :slight_smile:


Grim- too true.

Special mention goes to GRNDL- best commentary on the entries!


yer i think i’ll have to do that, now i’ve got a medal and all i think it would be wrong not to have an avatar lol.

Knight Of Awsome:

Aw… i got lower than expected… some how spending the last three days on my model was not much time

Congrats to the winners:cheers

Hashut’s Blessing:

Well done to all. Cngratulations to the winners. As expected, zero votes. Shows the standards of everyone else at least :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


A wise man once said “the journey IS the reward”:slight_smile:

Hashut’s Blessing:

I’ve heard that. Can;t remember who said it. I agree anyway :wink: I never said I was displeased with my resulting model, I just expected it to occur. Curse the fine sculptors and painters!
