Why the fuck do people care if newer marine models look like something out of AoS or vice versa?

Did all of you forget that they use literally the same Daemon models in both their Warhammer ranges and have for decades now? And you're worried about things looking vaguely similar?

Player - Can chaos use the Primaris marines?
GW - No - but there will be new big nurgley marine..


Me - well, that doesn't help my Night Lords does it? General release for all Imperial Armies vs Faction Specific release is not the same.


GW said the same when an eldar player asked about plastic aspect warriors


Player - You've made more marines? What about plastic aspect warriors?
GW - Well, we did just give you guys a god


Me - well kinda, they made a new faction. New Faction does not equal plastic aspect warriors..


I like new GW, but I dislike answers that aren't answers :D

Beacuse i don't like the new modeling trend that has taken over warhammer fantasy and 40k in the last years. Bigger, rounder, beefier models, dinobots and steampunk dudes all-over-the-top. I honestly liked wh40k when it was grimdark and leaner. It's not that i dislike some mix between the universe, but c'mon. The last "dwarvs" from AoS looks like they can fit in wh40k. The new chaos marines models looks like they came out of The Endtimes releases. (Also, MOAR bells!)
I'd like to have some different looking models, thanks. (and less "gummy" in appearance)

EDIT: also, reusing parts from different model sets is truly a signal of scarcity of ideas from the sculptors (whose job overall i admire, because GW truly had/has some of the best models out there)

I'm not bothered by the aesthetic being similar between systems, if they've got the same design crew working on them it's bound to happen.

The models are fantastically detailed, well put together and even if they don't look 100% practical or realistic, they have managed to stay well within what I would expect of their respective settings. The fact that they share similar traits is a bonus as far as I'm concerned, as it makes it even easier to incorporate across range for good conversions.

I honestly fail to see the comparison between AoS nurgle units and the corrupted MK III armour of the new deathguard...

Because different people have different views and opinions on aesthetics

The aesthetics is not the issue. It's the fact that there are similarities between systems that people seem to have a problem with.

were we talking about the aesthetics of those models or am i wrong? No one said that he was pissed about the models because GW used many AoS rules in 40k
