EA: Tanks for the Warhammer 40K Inspiration?

This image from Reddit builds the case that a tank design for Command & Conquer Tiberium Alliances appears quite similar to a Games Workshop-designed tank from the Warhammer 40K series. Games Workshop is known for fiercely defending its intellectual property rights, so there is rampant speculation that if this claim turns out to be valid, legal action is likely to follow. Thanks Strategy Informer.

A tank is a tank is a tank. GamesWorkshop is run by a bunch of idiots to start with.

Secondly the designs are not even close to similar. Someone has gotten a bit too high.

I feel the second tank is the one that should really be in Blue's original post, as it's horrifically damning.

Sorry but I have to disagree with you, it looks like any tank and they are NOT similar, they have significant differences.

I'm no fan of Games Workshop so don't get me wrong but if they're so significant, care to actually name them? I'm looking at the pictures and not really seeing the difference. It's not like they just did a little imitation or something, it looks like the exact same thing.
