    Has any one noticed that in baldurs gate, there are aot of similarities.
    For example:
    in Baldurs gate 2, in the masion place, the basement contains two mosnters that look exactly the same as chaos spawn, as goes for the hounds looking like chaos houns.
    also, in both baldurs gates, there is a lizard man who is called seslyth. he looks the same as the saurus warrior range doesnt he?
    And there are also many more.

    :realmad: has anyone else noticed this?

    yes, and thers that too. infact, i think that many directors get "inspired" (*coughbribed*) by GW.

    I think it's a little from both. GW never directly rips of ideas, they atleast have the sense to make good fluff and some nice models to overlook that fact and besides if you cant take inspiration from others ideas then where are you gonna get em?

    There's a little give and take in the Starship troopers movie.

    The directors used the concept of IG to portray the Soldiers.
    GW now have tyranid models who look alot like the aliens in the film.

    If you are looking for some real similaritys check out Starcraft. Or DoW hehehe.

    All that stuff is from Dungeons and Dragons: Forgotten Realms. So if you want to say that it looks familiar to D&D, well there is little mystery left.
