Here's a break from our usual political slogs.
Animal rights organisation PETA has asked Warhammer publisher Games Workshop to remove the depiction of characters wearing fur from its range of miniatures and games.
PETA, which has become well-known for its anti-fur campaigns involving celebrities and its calls for the humane treatment of animals both in reality and fiction, said in a statement that it had written to Games Workshop CEO Kevin Rountree to request a ban on the portrayal of fur clothing in the Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 universes.
The move is likely to rile up some fans of the series who see the ethical treatment of animals in real life and the depiction of fur and animal suffering in fictional worlds as different, a stance that PETA acknowledged in a statement.
I'm guessing they ran out of stuff to be irate about. It's also rather ill targeted considering how inhumane most of the factions can be to people, not even various local fauna. I like how they call out Russ and Horus for bad treatment to animals, lets just forget about the heresy and the deprivations of chaos... Or flayed ones, dark eldar, etc... I'm curious why they didn't start with video games though. Far Cry springs to mind, as does Ark Survival.
