Thats a great point.

While I empathise with PETA wanting animal cruelty to stop, I also think that it is worth gaining some perspective, and understanding that of all the potential targets they might attack for their involvement in fur trading, those who wear only plastic fur, as part of what amounts to a Fantasy or Sci-Fi universe ought to be pretty far down the list, when compared with those who wear fur now, those who demand fresh kills to suit their wardrobes.

Seen on a (tastless) T-shirt:

PETA

People Eaging Tasty Animals.

But seriously, these groups should have a sunset-clause in their charters.

(My kids are warhammer nuts by the way.)

Warhammer is where the Trump God Emperor of Mankind meme originally came from. Can this simply be a coincidence? Or is there something more sinister behind this unusual attack on the Warhammer series?

Yes, indeed. The point was so far off it was indiscernable from background noise. Still not sure where that came from. I just wanted to clarify that i meant no harm.

Correct me if I am wrong, but the warriors depicted in this fantasy universe do not yet have a technological society capable of producing synthetic fibres...and so they are certainly entitled to wear cartoon pelts to protect themselves from the non-existent elements they face.


Seeing as you have invited us to correct you...


The warriors in that fantasy universe have spaceships, laser guns, genetic manipulation, and highly advanced cybernetics; I'm fairly certain they're capable of producing synthetic fibres.

Many of the characters' story arcs involve them undergoing tests that include killing ferocious wild animals with their bare hands as a demonstration of strength and courage, so plenty of the models include pelts and furs kept as trophies. It wouldn't surprise me if PETA complained about that, but they seemed to have missed that and focused on the models having some plastic fur attached.

Edited to clarify: Warhammer is broadly into 2 universes. Warhammer Fantasy is the "traditional swords & sorcery" version, while 40K is the "futuristic space vikings with guns" version. PETA seem to be focusing on the latter rather than the former.


I stand corrected...

Alright. PETA has outlived its usefulness. Time to get real jobs.

PETA GTFO OF MY WARHAMMER

I find it odd that they attack the Space Wolves (actually Vlka Fenryka), yet give the Night Lords a pass.

There are many reasons to hate the "fluff" and game of 30k-40k. Galactic fascism, rampant misogyny, The Emperor of Man destroying all religion in the galaxy to become a god, an income inequality that makes today look like a socialist utopia (whole planet press gangs, desperation cannibalism in the lowest levels of society, soylent-green style bio-reclamation in the 90% middle "class", off world delicacies served by slaves in the upper class estates/spires).

A hole is literally torn in "hell" to allow FTL travel. Genetically modified super soldiers spit acid, have two hearts, three lungs, eat the flesh of their enemies to gain memories, carry atomic grenades, and kill entire planets for the crime of "seeing" the wrong thing (Exterminatus). Did I mention the soldiers must be recruited before puberty, but only after they have proven their ability to kill.

40k is every bad trait of human government multiplied by 1000 and set free. It is mans worst inhumanity to man multiplied by 500 and set free. It is the FINAL dark age of mankind.

I think plastic fur is the last thing to set your sights on when protesting Games Workshop.

I guess you just don't like PETA? I'm neutral here and see it as something they would naturally oppose. The idea behind it from their point of view is that kids get conditioned and see wearing animal furs as an ok thing to do. Right?!?

With all the yelling at ATS about conditioning by the media I'd expect this to be a non-issue but who am I to say...

I can see why Warhammer can be particularly triggering.

Kids these days dont know where milk comes from - do you really think they would make the connection of animal furs.
