Would they try?
Would they really try? There are enough people to chase who are selling copies of their own models without going after people who are just trying to make and sell compatible models.
In many ways GW is entirely powerless to stop them. Their power comes in restricting the models from use in their stores and tournaments. Which I can blame them for. It would be a bit like Apple encouraging people to use PC's.
They are fantastic models though, if only there were a greater range available.

|KrythosMJarenkai||yes as we can see by the warcraft case way back when. aslong as you use Generic terms, and keep the models from being EXACTLY like the models GW produces, they can try to sue you, but they would, in the end, lose.|

Would you be so kind and post a link to the news instead of hotlinking the pictures?
I don't want to be all about the traffic, but i like clicks and views as well ...
However, as it was written in the news (and even without knowing any german) it was clearly to understand, that these are ULTRAFORGE Miniatures and no GW / FW Miniatures.

Heh...these are tricky legally.
It isn't illegal to produce models such as these, so long as you don't name them using GW's proprietary names. Several companies produce alternate IG or Space Marine models, primarchs, even the Emperor himself in model form...they just name their models using generic sci-fi terms. It's tricky as hell, but as far as I know it's totally legal.
NOT that I'd suggest doing it yourself. I'd think it'd be best to avoid the issue entirely.
