Warcolours Presents: The 35th Golden Hat competition on Chaos Dwarfs Online!
The silver winner will carry home a kit of 10 Ceramics of Ancient Times:
Subject Matter: Chaos Dwarf Warriors!
For this contest we want you to enter with one or more Chaos Dwarf warriors, however you imagine them to be.
The scope is wide and free: Arm them any way you like, and feel free to build dioramas; pit them against enemies; depict them enslaving, torturing or executing enemy captives; have their champion be a Bull Centaur or sorcerous-priestly acolyte; or have them accompanied by outlandish weapon teams if you like. If you wish your warriors to be attended by slave lackeys or Hobgoblin skirmishers, then go for it. You can enter with a single Chaos Dwarf warrior, or several in one or more different regiments.
Command groups with banners are always a popular sight and an excuse to go to town on freehand painting or converting. If you wish to build a battlement for your warriors to defend, or a whole altar with sacrificial scene in which the warriors partake, then by all means go ahead. If you think your warriors deserve some insane armoured personnel carrier or naval landing craft, then be our guest. Keep it as simple or as complicated as you like. Let your imagination run wild!
If you are unsure if your entry will fit the subject matter, please contact @Admiral and he’ll sort it out with the rest of the Staff.
Basing is unrestricted and up to your discretion. You may include plinths and display bases if you want. You may include fancy backgrounds. We want to encourage the creation of beautiful models and modelling scenes, not hamper it.
Subject: Chaos Dwarf Warriors

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

If for some reason you are having trouble with your submission, contact @Admiral. In order to avoid problems, entrants should not wait until the last minute to submit their entries.
How to Enter
Upload up to 4 photos of your entries to the Internet, e.g. with Imgur or with this forum’s direct upload function. Photos may not have additional text or items/models unrelated to your entry. Next, send a PM to @GoldenHat (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 at the top in the vaunted Golden Hat Gallery.
- Receive the Golden Hat medal for your online persona (if we manage to implement medals without hindering smooth updates of software).
- Win paints and miniatures! See above for details.
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.
Should you wish to donate a prize to the contest, please PM @Admiral and he will sort it out with you and the Staff.
Good luck everyone!
