“Only the most distinguished companies will gain everlasting recognition by the Dark Father”
Antenor and the Brazen Broadcast Present: The 37th Artisan’s Contest on Chaos Dwarfs Online!
This contest has been sponsored by @Antenor ! The gold winner will get an unpainted set of three metal evil dwarves sculpted by Antenor and cast by Hagen Miniatures.
And the silver winner will carry home 2 printed bastards, we are hopeful that some of the new sculpts will be available by the time prize delivery rolls around but that is subject to the whims of the winds of magic and the government postal carrier sector snailmailicus pidgeon’tarii-automadrones.
And finally one lucky random draw winner not in top three will receive 1 printed bastard of their choosing
Subject Matter: Regiments of Renown
This contest is open both to non-miniature art, and miniature entries, both painted and unpainted.
This time around we want you to draw, paint, sculpt or convert an artwork, sketch, miniature or diorama which in some way feature infantry or cavalry regiments of renown in service to the Chaos Dwarfs roster.
You could tackle this theme in myriad ways. For instance, you could convert your own spin on a traditional Chaos Dwarf unit, creating an elite squad to suit your army theme, replete with squid heraldry or steampunk greeble or chequerboards or eyeballs or… We all know this is standard operating procedure for all of you creative Daemonsmiths of CDO. You could create a scene depicting one of the classics like Oglah Khan’s Wolfboyz raiding an innocent trading caravan. Or perhaps you were inspired by Total War Warhammer 3’s take on Regiments of Renown such as the Granite Guard or the Blazing Beards of Bazherak! Maybe this is an excuse to make a unit of dynamically custom models for skirmish or warband style games like Warcry or Wherelards of Hairyron or Disney Princesses of Shade-cursed undermunda worldregionplacecity. Or a pet-having penal regiment of Chaos Squats ready to take on aliens or predators with their axe-guns.
The Brazen Bastard project has regiment of renown written all over it! Kitbash an Onion Dio or a Boney Porco with the interchangeable-ish parts. Add to the brazen project with art depicting current Bastards, new Bastards, or scenes from @Uther.the.unhinged 's unhinged lore. __ insert other shameless plug for the Brazen Bastards __ . Since unpainted greens are allowed in this contest, sculpting contributions are also fair game!
Or anything else entirely, as long as it involves loosely infantry or cavalry Chaotic Dwarf things or Hashut/Chaos-aligned regiments. Let your imagination run wild and be welcome to surprise us all with weird interpretations!
