The thing about Warhammer Fastasy was that it was that it swallowed up so many fantasy tropes and left enough to the imagination that people could fudge a few things if they didn't fit into their view of what the setting was like, even when it explicitly stated to be one way only.

I've met enough WFB players in my time that play down the high fantasy elements because they want to focus on the low fantasy stuff (and vice versa). But this approach does lead to some very interesting cognitive dissonance at times, such as the Settra example above.
