Never mind the destruction of civilizations, the human skulls, or the other violent themes, PETA (specifically the UK organization of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) wants Games Workshop to stop sculpting its Warhammer 40,000 miniature figures with images of animal fur.
PETA has written to Games Workshop CEO Kevin Rountree asking that the leading British miniature war-gaming brand ban “fur” garments from all Warhammer characters. While we appreciate that they are fictional, draping them in what looks like a replica of a dead animal sends the message that wearing fur is acceptable – when, in fact, it has no more place in 2017 than it would in the year 40,000.
Come to think of it, how do they know it’s not fake fur?
