More likely because that:


Only kinda looks like that:


Head is similar, body is similar, armour is similar; but at the end of the day it still only looks similar to a warlord titan. This isn't like chapterhouse blatantly ripping off GW.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

And it looks like too many other things for GW to sue over (Think Mech Warrior, etc)

I doubt it. GW haven't brought out a model, so they should be safe enough, in the same way that all the 3rd party companies that brought out thunderwolves were because there was no minis for them when the rules came out.

so im going to assume your ignoring the warlord model it was clearly based on,the picture of which is posted in dark reavers post just above yours....?

They are based in Greece so well within EU boundaries, the main thing is hes kept away from using GW terminology and not copied the warlord exactly, GW tend to get the major arse on when people start chucking around words like "warhammer 40k" etc etc to sell things, i still stand by that if chapterhouse had just used generic terms like scibor and maximini etc, they wouldnt be in court now with there assets frozen.

anyway its not a bad model, not sure its sale worthy looking at his stuff on face book but its certainly not a bad "not warlord" .

Bits is right. I don't think this one is likely to attract any flak from gw legal.

Which is good, since it sits about half the cost of a fw reaver titan and represents something twice as powerful.

Doesn't look big enough to be a warlord anyway and as GW has no model its all down to intellectual property so they still can take them to court as it looks too similar to a warlord titan.
