    As it seems we are unfamiliar with sarcasm, I will stop the thread.

    Warhammer did not invent dwarves and orcs. They ripped off Lord of the Rings' dwarves and orcs.

    Lord of the Rings did not come in 1999. It was written during world war two. It was first published over fifty years ago.

    Can an ork still be called an ork if it was skinny, got blue skin, and had laserguns instead of axes? Can a dwarf still be called a dwarf if it's 7 ft tall?

    It's like making a werewolf story, but instead of ripping off old werewolf stories where the dude turns into a wolf on a full moon, they make the dude turn into a rabbit when it rains, but still call it a werewolf.

    Moreover, LOTR didn't invent dwarves and orcs either. It borrowed them from older European mythology. Tolkien was the first to refer to hobgoblins as "orcs" though.

    No, he's right. Warhammer is just a ripoff of lord of the rings, except with guns and crap.

    Well, isn't there that ancient rumour that Warcraft (the original game) was supposed to be a Warhammer RTS blizzard was making for Games Workshop or some such thing?

    Either way, who gives a crap when all this human/orcy shit is just a long line of ripping off Tolkein.

    All the fantasy authors and developers had a huge rip-off party and stole each other's ideas.
