You can asterisk, bold, italicize, and emphasize all *YOU* want, but GW calls the shots, and if they say they are seperate - they are indeed. Having Space Marines descend from the skies to reconquer a the Warhammer World would just be plain mean.I *CHOOSE* to ignore that!
Someone at GW (or whatever they called themselves before they were GW) must have read a lot of J.R.R. Tolkien. He had dwarves, orcs, elves, humans, trolls, beasties, dragons, halflings, goblins, sorcerers and other "fantasy" creatures all thought up on one world too. So, no real creativity or huge thought process put into it by GW, it was already done for them.In addition if it were true how did all the other races get trapped on this lowly planet unable to reconnect with their space faring brethren? In addition to even that what a coincidence that Orcs, Elves, Dark Elves, Dwarves (Squats), and humans all ended up on this planet altogether.
Probably because the Tolkien estate has no copyright on the various races, they existed in literature before J.R.R Tolkien's work.Oh I totally agree. I think they started out as Citadel and then Citadel took over the miniature side of things. I still wonder how they got the rights to use so many from the Tolkien lore I'm sure it cost them a pretty penny.
Oh absolutely, I was just referencing the fact that he put them all on one world to duke it out for supremacy. The "idea" was nothing new.Probably because the Tolkien estate has no copyright on the various races, they existed in literature before J.R.R Tolkien's work.
