“Sharpen da knives…”
Zanko & Antenor Presents: The 33rd Artisan’s Contest on Chaos Dwarfs Online!

Subject Matter: Hobgoblin Artwork Challenge!
This time around we want you to draw, paint or otherwise create some kind of non-miniature artwork or concept sketch which in some way feature one or more Hobgoblins or Hobgrots, including your own reimagining of the concept - that cruel and sneaky middleman slave caste from the steppe who has grown fat lording it over the Dawi Zharr’s hordes of lesser thralls!
You could tackle this theme in a myriad ways. For instance, you could depict one or more Hobgoblins stabbing someone in the back, or Hobgoblins kowtowing to their Chaos Dwarf masters, or spreading lies with malicious intent, or dragging screaming captives in ropes behind their giant wolves, or flaying an Orc with sadistic glee, or whipping a Goblin, or mutilating a Gnoblar, or outriding pursuing cavalry, or Hobgoblins sleeping on a bunk, or having a great knifing booze party, or offering sacrifices to shady figures, or getting ripped apart by angry Greenskins, or bossing around slaves labouring with building a megalomaniac monument to their Sorcerer-Prophet overlord, or building a tent on the steppe, or sewing a cap, or shooting arrows at a bound prisoner, or something else entirely. Let your imagination run wild and be welcome to surprise us all with weird interpretations!
And this round, the gold-winning artwork will have the honour and duty of becoming the front page image for a future Brazen Bulletin webzine!
