Was/Has this been an issue where someone just copied a bunch of GW models and sold them online? When I researched it some I found a you tube video on how to create molds outof existing figures... and it seems like someone might have done just this.. I am going to go back through my ebay purchases when I get home form work and try and find if/when/who i purchased these off of...

I also have some creamy-white pieces I obtained from someone at my gaming club. They are skeleton weapons: spears, bows and lances. Anyone know if these are forgeries?
Way back in the late 90s skeletons were made in "bone" coloured plastic (actually a sort of off cream colour) so you may just have old parts.

With parts that small I wouldn't worry anyway - moulding parts (so you can have a full regiment of skeletons with the same shield etc) is a grey area in the law, as long as they are for personal use, so its unlikely GW could enforce copyright even if they wanted to.
