This are "miniatures" - they are not real. Which means that any fur detailed is not real.
But what about art? Its not real.
How about in computer games? Its not real.
No animals were harmed in the creation of any of Games Workshop's IP.
Wait... do they still sell horse hair brushes to paint these fur wearing miniatures? Are the horses harmed? It may be time for a revolution!
Now, if Games Workshop were to declare the not real fur in the first place to be faux fur, would that make PETA go away? Probably not: "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"
How many Warhammer players drape themselves in fur? Fuck, who could afford to at the price GW minis cost.
