Yeah it's sarcasm, it's a British pastime. I find it funny that so many people here can't see it for what it is and are all up in arms about it.

On the whole fan animation IP thing, that changed up pretty quickly. 'You must not.......'

Well, I have to admit he's right... most of the "knockoff" stuff I've printed is a full order of magnitude less impressive than the official GW miniatures.

I mean, it's just self evident:

Spoiler:




They're maybe even two full orders of magnitude more imposing.

And so very expensive! At that scale I can only print a paltry three, maybe four full armies with a single bottle!

No, it's called a blatant attempt to get the mods to shut the thread down by making references to recasting, since the longer it goes on, the worse GW looks. Making fan film and putting it up for to be viewed for free is hardly the same as recasting or 3d printing minis. (And I really want to mock the quality of whoever printed that dread since they clearly had no fething idea how to do it, even at an early point. I made better minis on a 3d printer than that in the 1990s)

On the 'truth' content of your statment, there really isn't any, since GW steals most of it's 'intellectual property' from others. Remember, folks, no matter what fancy new name they put on it, the Dark Eldar remain Moorcock's Melnibonéans in SPAAACE.

Surely you mean GW Melnibonéans. Look, they're just reusing their old designs.

And that is how you do sarcasm.

It made me chuckle.
Seems I was the only one that saw the humour in it.

Ah well. I guess some people are having a grumpy sunday.

The Sarcasm didn’t match the image.put a nice print up there and accurate pricing and it would have been a good joke.

You immediately thought the red one was printed, yes a crappy one. But I've seen what excellent 3d printers can do and I immediately thought the ultras one was printed....ya know cuz it's a joke.

I... I'm not sure you understand what makes a good joke. Exaggeration to the point of hyperbole is often part of a good job.

Since I guarantee stuff like that is shared amongst 3D printing hobbyist (because it is, after all, a funny joke), I"m baffled by the responses.

Good, we'll give our money to Moorcock, Herbert, O'Bannon, Heinlein, and Roger Dean (or their estates). You know, all the people that GW stole everything from.

Stuff like this really shows a complete lack of understanding of how IP works. By definition, you cannot copyright an idea, only the expression of that idea. With the exception of the Chaos star (which appears in a wide range of games), GW took inspiration and ideas from these other works. Just like those works took ideas and inspiration from other works.

I laugh quite frequently and do understand humor.

I also own two printers, a Ender3 for terrain and a Photon Mono for models. I know what is available out there .

I guess humor is like the difference between pornography and art, you know it when you see it.
