Well obviously, he's a fan, and his reason for this isn't to create cheap duplicates to be sold, rather - modified copies to be shared amongst other fans.
But i don't blame games workshop as it could potentially damage sales of their overpriced products. (i remember collecting these when i was younger,

But in saying that, he was modifying them with a creative goal. That was to bring about a community of enthusiastic fans, sharing their own work.
Of course it isn't seen that way where big business is involved.
So what are your thoughts, ATS? Could "physical piracy" be the next form of piracy? What sort of legal issues will it bring with it, and how far will
they go with this? Would it become the huge mess that is digital music and movie piracy?
It could destroy the sales of overpriced genuine car parts, for example
I was browsing a diy 'hack' forum and saw a story about a few engineers in germany getting their hands on a cnc machine that was previously used for
manufacturing wind turbines 50 meters in length.
