Ever had a look at the Miniatures of the North minis?
They've been around for a while and recently uploaded some really great Techno Communion previews. These would be great tech priests or Mechanicus guys.
The poses are dynamic, full of detail and certainly cater to a market that Games Workshop only really seem to cater to through limited Forge World releases.
It was while I was looking at these great previews that I came across a certain mini that I think might bring the type of legal ire we saw directed towards Chapterhouse...
Don't get me wrong, it doesn't worry me if people draw influences from GW or any other media - we wouldn't have Genestealers without Giger and the Aliens movies, in fact the Imperial Guard would look a bit different too. Games Workshop is hardly innocent of getting influences from other media - it's just they tend to be very very protective of their Intellectual Property, and Hell they spent lots of money so why wouldn't they be?!
But after all the Chapterhouse legal hoopla, this seems to be the next things that could get this cool little studio in trouble.
It would be a shame to see Miniatures of the North lose what they have, some really great Mechanicus-style designs for this one mini!
Here's hoping it works out and there isn't heavy legal action or threats or unpleasantness in the community, because.... well dammit, I want to buy some of those Techno Communion guys with their cool hoods and funky steampunk backpacks!
