A big pile of bad news now…
I was contacted by GW Legal. They requested that I remove the website and I did. It is their right and I must comply.
I was infringing on their IP with:
- GW artwork (featured in the background of your website)
- Photographs of GW’s painted miniatures (taken from the GW web store)
- Legion logos/ iconography
- Army points and stats for 40K units
- The Warhammer 40,000 logo
Seeing all of these I feel lucky they didn’t actually sue me.
I didn’t actually remove the site but, as you can see, it is unusable – I am leaving it for now just for this news so you know what’s going on.
I cannot say I wasn’t expecting this. I really did use a lot of their data. But I have to say I just cannot use the new points without some kind of list builder. And using things like BattleScribe is total bullshit. Those lists are UGLY as hell.
I really hoped when GW contacted me it would be for some sort of collaboration. Not removal 😦
I want to thank all of you for all the gratitude and some of you really helped with the data.
If you think something can be done about this maybe you could all send emails to Games Workshop saying you really want this… There are 12 000 of you each day on here… It may make a difference.
I am so sad… 😦
