I was going through my Skaven last night and noticed that about 30 of the clan rats (old style) and Rattling Guns are a odd white plastic (resin) look to them... this was out of a lot I picked up about a year/two years ago but just now noticed this.. posiblly was an e(vil) bay purchase... 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...

That could be possible on the Hero Quest Skaven, When I get home I will double check everything and maybe get some pics... IF i have time... That is what I thought on the Rattling gun but let me triple check everything...
Well that is true however if the seller is still selling stuff on ebay and you let them know that you think he might be selling forgeries... oh hell forget about it then... And yes they are a very white - and not to bad job and are a non GW plastic and they are not the Skaven from Hero quest... so i just cleaned them up and applied primer... I let GW know and they didn't seem to give a shit either so why should I. Thank your for all the comments and there IS a policy on Ebay about reporting forgeries and i didn't notice a time frame for that...
I was looking at it, and the color of the skaven in question was a yellowish white, and the body and arms and sword are all one piece but the shields look to have been glued on, there are no GW markings on it anywhere not even the plastic tab. I compared it to the (old) plastic Skaven Clan rat and it looks exactly like the one with the champion head... I was wrong on the Ratling Gun... one is metal the other is plastic so I know the plastic one is forgery
