Default well look what i found...

while looking up pictures for my Guerra codex i stumbled on this:


so is it just me or is this our new vostroyan commander in the flesh? we got the mustache, fur hat, skull and cross bones, fancy uniform, its all there! it seems GW's capacity for coming up with new guard regiments has gone down hill since 2nd edition.

What GW stealing ideas is anything new... I wish they could have found something more realistic though, there is a reason nobody uses such uniforms anymore in actual combat.

Yeah, 40K is basically Dune with Aliens, Starship Troopers, and Lord of the Rings tacked onto it.

It's not about whether or not you steal ideas, it's whether you steal the good ideas or the crummy ideas.

Don't tell me that you fell for the MTV lie?
The MTV lie is that people who rebel against tradition are thnking for themselves, while those who follow tradition are just sheep who do not think.
It is, of course, completely untrue. The decision to follow tradition is just as much an exercize of free will as is the decision to depart from it.

I think we are all familiar with the expression: Good writers borrow, Great writers steal. Or something similar to that.

Is he a nazi or what? I mean, 4 iron crosses on his chest. The fur hat doesn't fin in though. Tell me where you found this picture, please.

Why should this mean that GW are lacking imagination nowadays? It's not like the Valhallans, Cadians, Catachans, Praetorians, Steel Legion, and Death Korps are entirely made up either. The Vostroyans aren't anything new in this regard; they are taken from a historical army just like most other Guard regiments. It's practically tradition nowadays.
