[size=xx-large]Evil At Heart[/size]
Welcome one-and-all, to the 15th Golden Hat modeling and painting competition!
We are pleased to announce that this Golden Hat has been sponsored by Mantic Games! They have offered up prizes for contestants placing 3rd, 2nd and 1st!
Yes, absolutely we’d love to do some giveaways with you guys. We could do a Black Souls Regiment (20 Warriors) worth £20 for 3rd prize, Abyssal Dwarf Half-Breed cavalry worth £35 for 2nd and an Abyssal Dwarf Army Set worth £50 for 1st prize? How does that sound to you?That sounds awesome to me!
In addition, I want to have some random-draw giveaways so that any participant will have a chance to win a prize. If you want to contribute a prize, you must be willing to pay for the shipping to send it to a fellow member. I am donating my Big Hat Death rocket.
Random Prize Draw Items (donated by members):
- Death Rocket with Crewman (Xander)
- Dronzak Bannerfist [MM90 Standard Bearer] (clam)
As we all know, the look-and-feel of the evil-hearted Dwarfs have a long and storied history that includes many different styles. Be it Helms, Hats or Masks (or some combination of the three), we all have our favourite variety. With many miniatures companies throwing their hat in ring, the evil-hearted Dwarfs are finally having their day in the sun!
So, what faction do you represent?
The challenge for Golden Hat #15 is to create a single Evil Dwarf Infantryman on a 20mm base that represents your idea of the perfect Evil Dwarf.
The model should be a rank and file trooper. Any equipment is allowed: hand-weapon and sheild, great weapon, any variety of firearm. Just make sure the model is not a hero, champion, musician or standard bearer. You can convert or model your own figure, or use any existing model from any applicable miniatures range. Just make sure it is fully painted (though WIP shots of any conversion or modeling work are welcome).
20mm - A small amount of scenic basing is allowed, but bare in mind the model should represent a run-of-the-mill trooper of whatever unit type he (or she?) happens to be.
Diorama style bases are not allowed.
The full rules for basing can be found here.
Please read the full rules that apply to the Golden Hat competition before submitting your entry.
When is the deadline?
Once again same basic premise as previous Golden Hats; send all entries to the Golden Hat account no later 11:59 PM June 30th, 2011 EST (Eastern Standard Timezone). Entries will not be accepted after that date and time regardless of how cool your submission is. (You have around 4 weeks to complete your entry)
If for some reason you are having trouble with your submission, contact one of the Staff. In order to avoid problems, I “highly advise” that entrants do not wait until the very last minute to submit their entries…
How to Enter
Upload up to 4 photos of your entries to the internet. 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:
- Rightly take your place in the Golden Hat Hall of Fame, where your glory will be remembered for years to come.
- Receive the Golden Hat medal for your online persona
- Everyone who enters gets a number of slaves equal to the number of entries. If 50 people enter we award 50 slaves to each person who entered.
- If you place in the top 3, you’ll win a prize, courtesy of Mantic Games
= As with previous Golden Hats; if there are more then 10 entrants the silver and bronze Golden Hat Medals will be awarded as well.
Entries will count towards a veteran medal.
As usual once all entries are received a thread will be created for voting. And as always if there are any questions please PM me, another Staff member or post them here. Ideally pm one of the staff as it’s less likely to be missed.
Subject Matter: Create an evil dwarf infantryman on a 20mm base.
Due Date: 11:59 PM June 30th, 2011 EST (Eastern Standard Timezone)
Also, I am revealing now that we will be running the 16th Golden Hat from July-August and it will likely have a Warhammer Forge theme (so don’t worry!). More on this later!
So that’s it, get cracking! What does the perfect Evil Dwarf warrior look like? :cheers
