I find it kinda funny that 1942 is called "early war". (And yes, I do know it was actually the last week of 1941)
BUM/GerMan/Metch are renowned for copying figures. As are Mars, MIR and Hegemony. I think people don't see it as theft, in the same way they don't see downloading a movie or music as theft. But maybe if they considered how the artists are expected to live or survive with no income from sales...?
It's a shame, really, because when BUM do something original, it's usually quite good:
Let down technically by their choice of material, but the figures look marvellous. I'd like that sculptor to work for me!
ill wait for early war marines from strelets.im sure they will be better than this.
