It's the downside to making a game from common, recognizable concepts like Dwarfs and Elves. You have something everyone can relate to, but you don't own much of it. On the other hand you can do something completely original and claim ownership of it, but risk not drawing enough interest because it is too different.
Really a sad joke if a company lets loose their laywer dogs to punish, burn and crucify someone for stealing "their IP", when so much they
did release is not really of their origin.
I think they only get away with that because those on the receiving end of their lawyer-whip know that they would win a trial in the end, but fear the costs and the time involved, so they don't stand up for what is their right.
OT: I don't think this one is bad at all, but I also think it does not outstrip the actual GW Skaven characters.
Ah, and yes: Badsmile is correct: There should be more realism even on fantasy miniatures. I vote for pricks and balls!
