Warhammer demon thing apologises for wearing fur

Quote:
A CHAOS Daemon from space wargame Warhammer 40,000 has shamefacedly yielded to PETA’s request to remove fur from its armour.

The immortal fiend, who entered our galaxy from the hell-realm of the Warp to murder and lay waste to the living, has issued a full apology following pressure from the animal rights group.

It continued: “Somehow, as I was ravening across the cosmos eviscerating and mutilating any sentient being I could, I lost sight of what was important.

If you weren't aware, this was a reference to PETA asking Games Workshop to remove fur from one of their daemon models.

Quote:
Yes, Warhammer characters wear fur. But at least they do their own flaying

The tabletop wargame Warhammer 40,000 lays its cards (and plastic, resin and metal miniatures) on the table from the word go. Its famous tagline warns players: “In the grim darkness of the far future there is only war.” Well, war and fur stoles.

It’s the latter that has got Peta UK up in arms, it seems, with the animal rights organisation writing to Games Workshop, creators of the franchise, to protest about the fact that some characters wear animal hides. “From the mighty Leman Russ and Horus Lupercal to Chaos Warriors and the Sisters of Silence, Warhammer features an abundance of characters who wear what appear to be animal pelts, which just doesn’t add up,” the group’s senior manager, Yvonne Taylor, wrote.

“Indeed,” she adds, “nothing on the bloody battlefields of Warhammer’s war-torn world could match the horrific reality that foxes, minks, rabbits, and other living beings experience at the hands of the fur trade.”

Yvonne, forgive me, but are you kidding? The only thing Warhammer 40,000 is worse for than ethical instruction is the wallets of young nerds. Its creators have spent 30 years coming up with grim, dark tales of warfare and violence that absolutely match the horrific reality of animals in our world.
