Should you have earned a new Veteran’s Medal (gained at 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30 main contests entered), please contact us and link us all your entries in all previous Golden Hat and Artisan’s Contest competitions on both old and new CDO (note: Scribe’s Contest does not count towards this purpose, but have its own Veteran Scribe’s Medal).

And now for the prizes!

First off, @Zoddtheimmortal CDO’s very own BobRosstheimmortal of pastels will receive this set of mm90 miniatures courtesy of @LaketideMiniatures and @MichaelX

@Oxymandias and his red faced chequercannon bring home a €20 store coupon at Warcolours, doubtless he is running out of black, white, and red paint at this rate.

@Nicodemus who trailed the medals by a mere few votes in the hotly contested 4th spot will receive an assortment of nautical vessels in relatively Man-o-war scale courtesy of @Reaver and @MichaelX

And finally @Hashoooot snags the random draw and will receive a €10 store coupon at Warcolours

This was one of our best attended voting polls by a fair margin, with voters enough to rival the legendary Legendary Lords Golden Hat XLI. A great turnout of both participants and voters. Thanks to Warcolours and The Broadcast for their generous prize donations!

And that’s it for this round of Golden Hat. Now let’s see the participants’ entries in the blogs, hopefully with WIPs to show off that CDO creativity. deathly stare :wink:

Next up, Artisan’s Contest!

The Staff


Well done, worthy winners! Another great contest in the books


Really great year. Happy to see so much creative energy. I’ll have to start prepping for next time!


GZ @ all participants! ^^

Surprised the snail with the plough didn’t win anything, tough. I was almost sure it would!


Snail enthusiasts unfortunately had a hard time uniting behind a single snail it appears. Had the snail party gathered under a single snail candidate they would’ve easily slimed their way to a podium finish.


Awesome contest entries; enormously creative and beautifully painted. Congrats to the proud winners!


Yes!!! Thanks for the votes all who voted for me - can’t wait to spend the voucher tbh! Running low on some supplies

Great entries - real “spirit of CDO” kinda competition


I love a good bronze tradition meme. Just missing the splints on the middle fingers.


This comment made me giggle :grin: high five @MichaelX, a man of great taste!

These entries were incredible start to finish. The sightless eyes of Daemonic Thomas haunt me, in the best way.


Congratz to the worthy winners! :hatoff:

By the way, I also chose exactly the 3 entries … what good taste and style I have! :rofl:


Nice!! Congrats to all the winners. Great work all around!



Amazing entries everyone! You better believe I’ll be entering next competition! :metal:

Big congratulations to the winners! Some really inspiring War Machines here!


As is tradition when winning the war colours prize - I used it to spend a lot more than just the voucher covered haha!

Thank you for donating Warcolors!

If anyone is interested - I did a review of this product a few years ago when I won it before:

He’s also included some Cypriot delights which my 5 year old daughter ate. She has not, as of yet, blogged a review of them but she seemed to enjoy them.


Wow, everything was B.A.D ass.
The Ole mighty Hashut says this must have been a fashionable fight, it has drawn the finest people.
