well i was looking at a picture of that new CSM raptor lord, you know-the one everybody hated and i was thinking man, that guy looks exactly like Manfred von Carstein! so i decided to find both pictures and compare them.

turns out i didnt have to becuase some idiot put them right beside each other in a display case, same head eh?

See, a solid proof that the WHFB and 40k universes are one and the same!

GW do it all the time in the LOTR range which is one of the reasons i stopped doing it, they just find the orginal model shave abit of here and there and add a few more pieces

Its hardly a rarity. Older GW sculpts were especially bad at this with exactly the same model repeated 5 or 6 times with minor details altered.

well the funny part i found was that they stuck them side by side in the same case, another thing is since they did the raptor first (well if they didnt they atleast released it first) they look extra stupid because Von Carstein is a special charicter, doesent that just seem weird? they were to lazy to make a unique head for a SPECIAL CHARACTER that they just cut and pasted one?

It also could just look similar and not be the same head at all

... I quite like that Raptor lord.

No accounting for taste, eh.

i actually think its pretty cool too

They appear to have the same head as they were both done by Mark Harrison. Coincidence? I think not. ;)

I dunno, they look similar, sure, but Mannfred looks a little more gaunt and there is something different about their teeth...

Well yeah but, its been like, 40,000 years. Even a vampire's fangs would get worn out after existing that long.


EDIT: oh oh, and now he needs a jump back to fly around with instead of just turning into a bat. Poor guy.

I don't wanna be the nay-sayer again, but I don't like them both much. Manfred doesn't look like the classic Bela Lugosi-style vampire which he always was to me and the pose and over-presence of bling on the Raptor fella is just too odd. Funny coincidence about the heads though.

I have got to get that sword!!!:eek:

Ehem OT...
It loks like the raptor has a larger nose. But maybe it's just the angle.

A good example, the Mordian and Praetorian models.

Same models with different heads.
