    Can we truly blame EA about this? I think the only one to blame is the developer of these models. It easily could be that the other developers didn't knew anything about warhammer and its tanks and never would have thought it was a copy of a warhammer figure.

    When the positions, shapes and styles of the individual detail hatches on the Bombard Tank match the positions, shapes and styles of the individual detail hatches on the Baneblade, I think any question of parallel inspiration kind of goes out the window.
    You'll also notice that the Bonecruncha has corrugated pipes along the length of its body just under the main turret, and crosshatched viewports on the turret and just behind the "death roller". As does the Grinder Tank.

    Oh sorry i said it wrong, can you really blame anyone else except the developer who made it was what i ment, it could be that the supervisors, co-workers, etc didn't know anything about this similarities and thus the question, can you really blame EA as bluntly stated.

    I believe it's the person responsible for pinching the idea's fault who is acting as part of EA, not EA as a wholes fault. It's totally their responsibility to discipline the people responsible and fix it though, it's wrong that it even happened.

    Why would anyone copy an orc tank anyway, Everyone knows Orcs weren't the cool Warhammer race. Pink & Purple space marines were THE way to go!

    When you said blame the makers of the "models"...I thought you meant the warhammer models (not the 3D game Models)

    I was like, what? are really trying to blame the warhammer guys for this ?


    I understand what you mean now

    I got a CS:GO beta earlier, and I sold the spare key for this baby. I added my paint to make it fit in.
