I think most Warhammer 40.000 fans are very well aware of the current uproar on the updates to the Games Workshop IP Guidelines and their crack down on fan creations. As I understand the need to protect ones IP I simply don’t understand the lack of appreciating from GW’s side of having an active – and amazing – community.

I have over the last few years added more than 200  Warhammer 40.000 vector icons to the repository in hope of it helping other community members and for the passion of the universe. With the updates and the general way of thinking on GW’s side I have decided to shut down the repository.

My apologies to the 7.000+ monthly visitors and I hope I will be back once GW sees the light and start to approve what we do for their universe.

I will also stop working on the Rhino racing game I was doing. Nothing big and mostly just to get my hands dirty in Unity and practice some 3D modelling. I just thought it would be a fun little game for people to race a Rhino of the chapter against their friends.

So, I’ll be stopping 40K related stuff and move on to something else.

  1. Man… right when I find out about this and have a hope that someone has an Iron Lords vector… it goes away. I understand though, best of luck.

  2. I wonder if there’s some kind of ARCHIVE ORGanization that might allow you to view websites from WAYBACK? It would surely would take quite the MACHINE to accomplish all that…

  3. yeah – kinda sucks in every way what GW are doing. But I guess as they grow and profits increase the shareholders want more and more. I have found your icons super helpful over the past few years for my own projects so thanks so much and hopefully things will change in the future and we can get back to fan made stuff again which was after all the life of the community.

  4. for those who liked these icons, i’d recommend using wayback machine, it has a snapshot of this year. I hope that’s useful.
