Not as much a rumour as just a fun thing - GW managed to screw up the GUO in their latest Daemons promo pic.

They've been having a bit of trouble recently haven't they, the GW online team ;). Maybe they are new holographic models?

Yes noticed that myself. A little bit quick with the photoshop chop-chop. :D Though I don't think this counts as news. ;)

Maybe it was just Tzeentch messing with them and us? A portent of sudden duplicate creatures?

Using a ball of string and a spoon I have been able to figure out that it was photoshopped to cover...

Seriously? You thought I could figure that out with some string in a spoon?

You guys have waaay too much faith in me...

Click on the original than onto the photo shop mistake, as you do make a farting noise and imagine what would happen to the greater unclean one, LOL

Hours of endless fun I could do that all night.

Does this mean that they make their pictures (promotional or just to show off a battlescene) using photoshop? i.e by copying and pasting miniatures on a miniature-less layout ? I guess for the superb battlescenes presented in the rulebook they may have (no way they have painted so much minis just for the sake of the picture), but for such a small display they do too?

You would think that would be more time consuming than just actually setting up the models...

They only have a limited number of models on hand in the Studio, so they do do it sometimes. e.g. when an article calls for three units of Chaos Marines, but they only have two, and I'm pretty sure they did it with the Spear of Sicarius product photo too. Sometimes for huge battles they rope in models from other stores, etc, but that is rare.

They don't shoot on a featureless background though. It's usually models on a battlefield which are then cloned and such. I'm not sure what they were trying to do in this case as it doesn't look like they were duplicating models as there's nowhere for the extras to "go".

I also remember a photo in the old IG codex. There were as many models as would be in a whole regiment. It was easy to see though that they copied a company about a dozen times.

See also this thread, although ignore the OP:

Does GW photoshop pics of their minis? (http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=243827)

Maybe the GUO's regeneration screwed up, and out came three heads!!!

They were probably color correcting a selection or something similar, and then accidentally alt-moved the selection (It creates a double when you do that).

Yeah that was my feeling too, that it felt like a slip rather than a WIP that got accidentally published (like it did with the Play Island Of Blood In Stores article).
