Subject Matter: Chaos Dwarf Battle Standard Bearer

For this Golden Hat contest we want you to make a single Chaos Dwarf Castellan miniature carrying a Battle Standard!

Basing Your entry can be submitted on either a 20mm square base or a 25mm or 32mm round base. Display bases and plinths are not allowed, though diorama style bases are.

Specifics

Subject: Single Chaos Dwarf Castellan miniature with Battle Standard.

Bases: One base only. 20mm square or 25mm/32mm round.

The Due Date: 11:59 PM September 18th, 2015 CEST (Central European Summer Time).

That gives you 6 weeks to come up with an entry. We want all members to have the time to order bits, do proper conversions and nice painting. You should all have a nice go at the prizes!

Please read the full rules that apply to the Golden Hat competition before submitting your entry.[/u]

Submission

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 approximately 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.

Inspiration

Why not check out the Image Gallery and the Golden Hat V gallery for inspiration.

I already have a BSB

No worries. You should enter anyway! If you’re playing AoS you can field as many as you like. Are you playing 8th edition End Times it’s the same thing.

And if you only play older versions? Enter as well. Your army and skills might have grown - make a better BSB. Use your old BSB in a regiment and the new one as a hero. An army can never have too many cool banners!

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. Please crop your pictures, cut away empty space. Please make sure your 4 pictures are roughly equal in size. 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. 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.

- Win some nice miniatures.

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.

Prize

Gold winner will win 13 Sons of Armadelech by Werewolf Miniatures. Three random entrants will win 3 Russian Alternative Miniatures.

Should you wish to donate a prize to the contest, please PM Bloodbeard and he’ll sort it out with you and the Staff.

Good luck everyone!

Zanko:

Awesome theme for a GH! :hat off

Hopefully we will see a lot of entries! :cheers

I will try to make a suitable entry though I have actually no idea which model I should use as a basis! :wink:

We do hope that the crazy amount of prizes, the long time line and the limited size will bring a lot of people to entering.

The good thing about organizing these things, is that it gives you more time to think. I do have a miniature in mind. ;P

tjub:

Im in, you can never have too many standards! :smiley:

Abecedar:

So, a Battle Standard it is then.
My track record so far shows no unit standards bar basically painted models.
No rushing in though.  This time I’ll actually think about it.

Grimstonefire:

One of the key models I’m missing…  Hmmm tempting.

I consider the battle standard to be the most impressive model outside the army general (or other large monsters/ mounted models).  So this will be a challenge for me.

Though personally I’d prefer 30th Sept as a date. :wink:

Timothy Archer:

Ok

Battle standard +werewoolf minis



Lets go �Y~S

Bloodbeard:

Glad to have so many of you aboard!

Hill_Billy_Bub:

Even though I still think of myself as a novice, I’ll give this a shot and see where the dice land.

Kamphre:

A shame Ravenswood didn’t released his BSB yet…

Just to give people heads up, I will be travelling on vacation during most of September, and then travelling afterwards for another week for work...so I probably won't get a chance to mail the random prizes until the early part of October. But don't worry, I'll put the postal service slaves to work quick enough upon my return :hat off

Kamphre
Yep, this was the first thing that popped in my head too...

Helblindi:

I’m passing on this. Alas! Been looking for an opportunity to join a GH-contest, but I have a BSB already, and so much other stuff to paint…

Bloodbeard:

So are people getting some ideas for this? I have the miniature ready.

Zanko:

The miniature is not the problem, the painting of the banner is very tricky for me! :~

                     :hashut

Fuggit Khan:

I’ve got an idea…but I’m leaving for vacation in a couple of weeks, so I may not be able to finish it beforehand.

Hopefully real life won’t offer too many distractions for the next two weeks…

Kamphre:

I’m still on the conversion phase, playing with needles, green stuff and bits.

At least I found a suitable mini and I receive my first ever plastic sheet.

I have the colour scheme and a good idea for the banner, I just have to put everything together.

I’ll do my best! :slight_smile:

Abecedar:

Have just been on my first holiday for two years. All of a whole week away.

So I’ve only just gotten into looking at what model I could use.

Tarrakk Blackhand:

Can I use an old Tall Hat model?

Bloodbeard:

Can I use an old Tall Hat model?

Tarrakk Blackhand
Yes sir.

Abecedar:

Tarrakk Blackhand
Please just don't "Tjubize" it
