"A brave new world."
Warcolours & AtomTaylor Presents: The 33rd Golden Hat competition on Chaos Dwarfs Online!
This contest has been sponsored by Warcolours! The gold winner will receive a €30 store coupon at Warcolours, courtesy of Poison:

While the bronze winner will receive a kit of 15mm Bak-kak-ku from Tjub and Admiralty Miniatures:
Subject Matter: Your own vision of Chaos Dwarfs!
For this contest we want you to enter with your very own vision for how Chaos Dwarfs (or their lackeys and creations) look like. This theme is particularly with Age of Sigmar in mind, since it's a brave new world of a setting, and very much open for weird new takes. Of course, your own vision for Chaos/Infernal/Abyssal Dwarfs, for whatever setting other than Age of Sigmar, is just as welcome. See this as an open contest with an invitation to get experimental, if you like to think outside the box. All manner of scales allowed. One or more models an/or terrain pieces; you yourself set the upper limit. You may of course include non-Chaos Dwarf models and/or terrain pieces, such as enemies fighting your visionary Dawi Zharr. Build a diorama if you like!
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.
Subject: Your own vision of Chaos Dwarfs in Age of Sigmar.
Bases: Up to your discretion.
The Due Date: 11:59 PM September 23rd, 2019 EST (Eastern Time Zone)
Please read the full rules that apply to the Golden Hat competition before submitting your entry.
All entries must be sent either to the Golden Hat account and/or to chaosdwarfsonline ( at ) gmail.com no later than the due date. Entries will not be accepted after this. (Entrants have approximately 9 weeks to complete entries). 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. Photos may not have additional text or items/models unrelated to your entry. 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:
- Walk across the backs of the cowed masses you have scorned and pushed aside, in order to take your place in the vaunted Golden Hat Hall of Fame.
- Receive the Golden Hat medal for your online persona.
- Everyone who enters gets a number of slaves equal to the number of entries. If 20 people enter we award 20 slaves to each person who entered. Entries will count towards a veteran medal.
- 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!

|Since mid-June CDO has been experiencing issues with particular areas of the forum. The error message will occur after a new post is made to a forum that someone has subscribed to for updates. You will see something like:|
MySQL error: 1364
Field 'headers' doesn't have a default value
Query: INSERT INTO mybb_mailqueue (mailto, mailfrom, subject, message) VALUES ('email@example.com', '', 'New Thread in Staff', 'Username,\n\nNicodemus has just started a new thread in Staff\nThis is a forum you have subscribed to at CDO Forums.\n\nThe thread is titled test2\n\nHere is an excerpt of the message:\n--\nanother test...

On the server-side it seems that some of the SQL functionality of our host's server have not been configured correctly, which results in an error message being issued instead of being forwarded to the new post.
While the posts still get created, the error triggers before the form can update the other parts of the site that keep track of the latest posts. As a result you will not be aware of some new posts if you are browsing the forum and clicking the "View Today's Posts" won't display these new posts either.
We've been aware of this problem since the site was migrated to a new server mid-June and there are several posts behind-the-scenes in the staff and admin sections of the site that most forum members don't have access to. Xander and I have exchanged text messages about this as well, but it requires some level of involvement from our hosting company as well, which adds to the delays.
Hang in there... we have a very good picture of what the problem is and how to fix it. It'll just take some time!
Meanwhile, feel free to browse through the forum manually and you may be surprised at a few of the thread contributions hiding here and there!!
