Has any one else noticed?

Some of you may be asking, 'What the heck is Cap talking about?' For those of you not familiar with the games Warmachine (and Hordes) colossals (and gargantuans) are huge Warjacks (and Warbeasts) on 150mm bases.
So now that Privateer Press is starting to out sell them in some markets they are going to take their cues from the youngling in the industry?
Now I'm not entirely sure what the base size is of the models in question but what's next... Is GW going to copyright the 150mm base?
I'm sure I'm going to be booed by the GW fanboyz and let me just stop you before you start, I have been a "fanboy" of GW since Rogue Trader was first released in England. My loyalty (as disgruntled as it may be) should not be in question.
I just wanted to see if any one else is thinking the same thing.

It's more than just 40k, Since the release of the new Hardback Army Books and Codexes nearly all of the updated armies have gotten 1 big new kit. Off the top of my head:
Sphynx for TK
Arok Spider for O&G
Chaos Warshrine for Chaos
Celestial thing for Empire
For 40k it's mainly been flyers but looking back
GK - Dreadknight
Helldrake for Chaos
Now Eldar with the flyer and Wraithknight
Also note the 40k rule book has pictures of Titans inside it and I think the Mega Bolter is in the weapon section? it's late and Im not fact checking this post, but the trend was established 2-3 years ago. It just seems with the recent shake up in GW leadership, that the green light in production has been lit and now we are in a golden age of new products.
Though I personally think this Wraithknight has broken the limits. I fought 2nd edition Armourcast titans, heck the old guys around here might remember "Benny" my pet Reaver Titan. And unfortunately my ex-wife got the Great Gargant and Phantom Titan in our divorce. but anyways. They just don't belong in 40k, Bring Epic, back.
We rode on the winds of the rising storm,
We ran to the sounds of the thunder,
We danced among the lighting bolts,
And tore the world asunder.

to be fair, the "knight" class has been around for a very long time. Epic had the "knight" class as a sort of infantry for titans and 40k has had a knight since the greyknights dreadknight. i think we will see in the very near future another stab at largescale games from gw.

GW has been working on bigger and better plastics for as long as I can remember, so its only natural that they would start making things the size of their Forge World line in 40k. Now if you ask if some of the recent model design from WarmaHordes then I will agree with you (Forgefiend, DE Talos, etc).
