    Games Workshop and the Height of Hypocrisy

    Well, isn't this something: https://www.pcgamer.com/games-worksh...an-animations/

    Apparently Games Workshop takes issue with fans using their IPs for their own enjoyment. Rather ironic considering the blatant theft the company is built on.

    While I don't agree with everything here, it is an interesting POV:

      Thanks for that. It is a cynical take on the issue but it is hard not to be cynical considering the actions GW has taken over the years. The concluding paragraph sums it up rather nicely:

      The sin isn’t in the taking, it’s in the pretense that it never happened, and the vicious grifting that punishes anyone who does unto GW as they did unto everyone else.

        Not sure if it fits perfectly with the Height of Hypocrisy angle, but it seems related: Warhammer 40K’s Creators Needed to Renounce Real Monsters Long Ago.
