Well it wasn't for you telling me that and by extension GW legal getting their panties in a twist I wouldn't know about these. And fuck I want some. GW really missed a chance with loxatl, They should have brought out some minis for them especially with the cultists being in the new dex.
I don't know about Giger, but Disney (who now own the Star Wars IP) could probably afford to sue the piss out of GW, if the number of similarities between the Komodo Warrior and Loxatl is enough for GW to sue the pants off Blight Wheel miniatures.It actually makes me wish that one or two of the people that they have ripped IP from would fight back, liek the guy who designed the aliens from alien, or lucas kicking off about the dark eldar raiders...but they never do.
not likely, maximini have copied the "idea", not directly made a miniature that looks exactly like a 3d representation of GWs art work, Im not really sure why this situation keeps cropping up, GW are pretty well known for having an active legal team,you would have to be stupid to create a miniature based on anything that has more than a passing resemblance to anything in the GW IP portfolio.
