If I had to guess I'd say it's an Admech skimmer sort of along the line of the land speeder storm.

This is from the design cues of it, I'm not sure how likely it is that GW is giving Admech another vehicle. Although to be fair, if they give admech a non-forgeworld transport that would fix most of their needs in regards to the model range (another cheapish HQ is needed in addition I'd say)

My money is on a SoB vehicle.
The vents them selves make it imperial but they do not link it to any particular faction. As others have pointed out, we are seeing the back of a vehicle from the top. We see a turbine pointing into a rudder.
The big deal for me though is that it is curvy. Look at the gentle taper of the right side and the rounded bevel of the bottom right corner. This alone marks it as not being SM AM or AdMech. It could be a GC or RT vehicle but I feel a SoB vibe coming from it.

Just my wild shot in the dark

I don't think its Sisters of Battle. GW aren't teasing that one out they are giving bold "here it is" releases for Sisters in a much more open air release.

My guess is its a marketing attempt to see how it works when GW teases and releases clear visual designs ahead of a release. Seeing how the community reacts and how the 3rd party manufacturers react.

I'm not seeing anything in that image that remotely resembles a human thumb. I see a grenade, with a main cylinder, two rounded end-caps and angular spoon and a cloud of smoke coming out of it.

It looks far too 'clean' to be a fantasy piece, in my opinion, so I think that a smoke marker for necromunda would be the best guess.

The white bit on the bottom of the cylinder, with what looks like a grey fingernail on it. Although it could be a lever, surely that should've pinged off after being thrown?

There are a couple of very squig-like parts which could be either 40k orks or AoS moonclan. Also the crudely stitched fabric could possibly be orky.

EDIT: I wouldn't take the number of rumour images as much indication of the size of release we will be getting. Kharadron overlords only got three images but ten different kits.

I thought bonesplitterz as well, but the spearhead appears too small and symmetrical, unless it’s a design change. Moonclan seems more likely, but I won’t rule it out.

The CSM backpack idea seems likely. I would be very glad to see a generic Sorceror.

Generic CSM do have a remarkable lack of plastic characters. They have the old Terminator Lord/Sorceror, and the Aspiring Champion clampack (one of the very earliest 40k clampacks). All the other Chaos clampacks are god-specific. There is also the now-OOP Dark Vengeance Lord.

I find it very odd that no generic Sorceror or Lord has been released, and to a lesser extent no plastic Dark Apostle or Warpsmith. Yet they have an Aspiring Champion...

The Cadian kit is about the same age as the Fire Warrior kit was before its revamp. I've been saying for awhile that it would make sense for the Cadian kit to get recut like the Fire Warriors did and to include some new weapon options/profiles as well.

Clearly, the Imperium is populated by dog people, therefore cats will only gain rank amongst the forces of heretics

Those heretics called the Eldar.

To be fair, UM players are kinda shafted. You can buy SW, DA, and BA specific squads in the price of normal ones, and there is a lot of boxes with their upgrade sprue thrown in for essentially free. Neither of UM upgrade sprues were ever put in combo box in the last decade, and UM have no squad of their own, just generics. Just look at the clownery that was holiday 'squad + vehicle' boxes - all of them except UM got free upgrade sprues. So, out of these 4 chapters, if you collect UM, you have to pay essentially the most for what is the closest look to vanilla, when there was no good reason for GW to not add that sprue in anyway to represent chapter relics or something even if you don't play UM.

And that's just before looking at actual rules - in 8th, it's kinda bearable (although UM have less and weaker options than the 3 deviant chapters), but in 7th, you had double shaft of everyone having their speshul snowflake stuff on top of UM rules, while UM itself got nothing to indicate their superior discipline and training being virtually SM -1 (last time they had anything like it was 5th edition and even then wolfwolves and BA were the 'best' marines, though at least back then UM could have at least pretend to compete with some builds...).

The base Marine kits come with UM transfers. That's why upgrade frames are in the kits for DA, SW, and BA.

Other than Ultramarines having a huge roster of characters and access to stuff that the BA, DA, and SW didn't?

That's assuming they're on the same sprue...which isn't likely what this boxed set would be. From what's been hinted at it will be something akin to Forgebane or Tooth & Claw, a mixture of new stuff and old.

As it stands, this looks to be the same type of kit as the Beasts of Nurgle. Those things have quite a few extra bits. The size is even right to be a kit similar to the BoN.

I'm expecting to see Daemonettes, a new plastic Daemonette character of some type, one of these new Fiends of Slaanesh, a new Khorne plastic character, Bloodletters, and new Flesh Hounds...and amusingly enough, something like that assuming Flesh Hounds go to a kit for $40 would be $188USD leaving enough wiggle room for it to be one of the $120-$130 kits instead of the full $150-$160.

Also, there's apparently a 360 view on GW's instagram and it does look really close to the rumor engine one.


Warhammer Community Rumor Engine Thread - page 135 latest hint @ 2018/10/01 21:45:53

Nah, the one in the 360 is different. There are only 3 spines leading up to the longest spine in the RE pic, whereas there are 4 spines preceding the longest spine in the 360 and sprue images.

I'm thinking it is going to be for a plastic Herald now.

Looks like a twin belt feed. Depending on the actual size, could be a storm bolter or a TL heavy bolter, or a combi-bolter.

Given the Chaos backpack we saw earlier and the fiend of Slaanesh and the rumours about a Khorne vs. Slaanesh boxed set on the horizon, it might well be a combi bolter from, or adjacent to, that set.

The Khorne vs Slaanesh set is confirmed. They gave us a video for it back with the Nova Open.
It's Daemons only. It's called "Realm of Chaos: Wrath and Glory".

We also know there's a 40k set called "Warhammer Quest: Blackstone Fortress" coming, which was heavily hinted at being like Silver Tower which saw brand new models all around, and a new faction(Tzeentch Arcanites) previewed that way.

Eyup, only because it's a belt, and not because details are nearly identical, and pretty unlike all other SM examples, or anything

Though, while I picked Cypher's gun because ammo on it is more pointier than other bolter belts, something bothers me - bolts are usually nearly cylindrical with round tip and wide bottom. This might actually not be a bolter at all but some sort of heavy stubber because narrowing ammo and belt look pretty close to CSM one:

The details aren’t nearly identical at all? Cyphers is just a solid leather strap, while the rumour engine one has a much more open structure. Apart from both being belts holding bullets, the details are very different.

Well, they’ve teased Specialist Games stuff in the past. And whilst definitely fantasy of some kind, I don’t feel we can entirely rule out LotR.

Really hope it’s Free Peoples though. Much as I think Stormcast are cool, Free Peoples are the ones that inspire me, for the same reason as Guard do when compared to Astartes.

It’s one thing to stand firm when your a genetically engineered or magically reforged demigod. It’s quite another when you’re just Bob, with barely enough training to show you which end of the Lasgun or Pointy Stick goes toward the enemy.

They sorely need it as well. Bring in the Ironweld, Free Peoples and Collegiate Arcane and that into a single Battletome. I feel we need a proper hodgepodge Mortal list, spesh as we’ll be getting Darkoath, their Chaotic (but differently evil from regular Chaos( counterpart.

Let the mortals have their time to shine. Show us the little men and women fighting against the horrors. After all. If they don’t, all is lost.

Looking at the pictures of the recently revealed pippin and gandalf models, I am pretty convinced this is not lotr or in fact anything specialist games. The painting styles are quite different. The highlight lines on the rumour image are extremely smooth, precisely painted in the eavy metal style. The specialist games and lotr stuff is not so smooth, as can be seen by the highlighting on gandalf and pippin's belts.

I don't think that is a standalone piece, but armour around something else, like a tail. If you zoom in, the outer edge looks a lot fuzzier than the inner edge, which I think has had something (like a tail) cropped from the image.

Maybe so, but GW has been going back and reworking a lot of material from that time period into a more palatable updated form. If that armored claw was a thing back then, this looks like a good indication the new KoS will mimic it in some ways. Excellent, Smithers.....

Let's also not forget that all the greater demon plastic kits get multiple variants you can build. We might get like two different types of claws for example. Maby a crusher claw like on the old model, and a pincher claw like the current model.

I imagine the Keeper will have organic claws, but that's just my thought on the process.

I think it is probably Moonclan based on the armored squig herder in the new warband. Maybe the armor on an armored centipede (the Fungoid shaman has a centipede on his stave), or some sort of sickle type weapon or a herding hook.

Something for Slaanesh is a possibility though.

The modern Slaanesh vibe has a lot of emphasis on perfection and pride; I don’t think dull, chipped armour fits that at all.
Even if the general shape and flow does.

That’s why I said Dark Aelf - close to the slaaneshi aesthetic but tempered by practicality.

The more I look at it, the more I am almost certain it is not a claw. The inside of the claw is far too dull and untextured, I'm pretty sure it's just a piece of armor, probably for Moonclan, but maybe a Slaanesh mortal.

I suppose it could be claw armor, though considering the picture is almost certain a side view, it would really only make sense if GW photoshopped the inner claw out. I'm not sure if they photoshop these pictures however, I'm unaware of them every doing so before (though I don't follow these too closely).

I think the claw armour sounds plausible. Magnus had lots of optional armour pieces.

However, it looks like it has to much of a curve to make a decent claw. The curve make it look more like it could be a halfmoon icon or something. the bottom part of the picture even looks like it could turn in to a nose if the picture was not cut.

I'd love for it to be lizard- related, but I feel like they'd have been dropping more hints about them otherwise. Plus the embellishments on their weapons tend to be a bit simpler around the edges and the hilts.

On the other hand, there were some weird mentions of Seraphon in that 500 facts FAQ they put out. Something about what the Seraphon were actually created from and how we'd find out soon enough...

I do think the picture is upside down though. The way the edges of the feathers fan out makes me feel that way.

Honestly?

I think we're all set on priests. Between the Enginseer, Datasmith, Dominus, and now the Lectro-Maester...I think it's time we get an actual Skitarii character choice.

Big reason why I say that I think it's a Skitarii character is the setup looks like an enlarged version of the Skitarii backpack.

Also because I really want a Skitarii HQ choice dangit.

Wrath and Rapture has new plastic Flesh hounds and Fiends of Slaanesh, but I get the feeling that won't be all. Seems a waste of an opportunity not to release a Keeper of Secrets and have all the Daemon range finally updated to plastic (heralds already have plastic version in their chariot kits)

My guess would be that bit is a claw/sword for a Keeper that'll be in the Wraith & Rapture set, along with a BloodThirster so there is a GD on both sides

There’s not going to be a £70 (at least) brand new KoS in Wrath and Rapture. We’re most likely looking at a £95 Blightwar equivalent box here.

Eh. I doubt very much that there will be one (let alone two) GDs in Wrath & Rapture. Thats a huge and pricey centerpiece kit, not something you stuff into a boxed game that will have only a slightly higher price point.

---
Math digression:
Boxed games are usually about $150, 2 lowest cost GDs would be $230, fiends and fleshhounds are probably (once they come out) min $30 each (and potentially much higher given beasts of nurgle are $40 each, juggers are 3 for $50 6 for $100 and flies are 3 for $60), so we're are nearly $300 (assuming an unrealistic lowest price point possible) value with nothing but ~10 models. Unlikely at best.


---
A unique herald sculpt seems more likely.

I won't be surprised if a Herald and Karanak will be the only 'unrevealed stuff' and likely the rest will be filled out with some existing daemon kits. An additional surprise or two for both gods would be nice, but it absolutely won't be two GDs.

--
I'd expect a Keeper kit to come out in roughly the same time frame, however, and for the fleshhound and fiend kits not to. Much like the two buggies in Speed Freaks, those will be used to push sales.

Shame. It really is the final piece of the Daemon range that NEEEEEEEEDS a plastic update. Everything else has something plastic somewhere

-

It hasn't had a price revealed, but it's not hard to figure out the intention with the set.

We've already had hintings as to what it contains and that would put it at the Blight Wars price point. It having a KoS in it is incredibly wishful thinking that will just end up disappointing you.

You'll see a KoS come out--GW has hinted/implied as much. It just won't be in Wrath & Rapture.

It hasn't, but the marketing of the boxed games is pretty consistent (barring the limited Titanicus All-the-Things edition), both in price and what they put in there. A $115+ single model doesn't make any sense to include in a box set, especially not a new one that will sell in its own right. Doubly so when the major draw (probably for multiple copies for some people, and I include myself there, since I'm working on that army) is the long awaited plastic fiends and fleshhounds. The GW marketing team would want whoever proposed that shuffled off for a psych eval.

Going by the pan on the Wrath and Rapture reveal trailer, the contents are
5 flesh hounds
? juggers
10 bloodletters
Probably Karanak (unrevealed)

3 fiends
5 seekers
10 daemonettes
probably unique herald (or new herald type (unrevealed)

That's pretty in line with this sort of boxed game. Possibly slightly more than usual, but they specifically pan over all those things in the reveal trailer and say more unrevealed models (which is at least 2)
----
The KoS is clearly being set up on both game lines, it will be a big splash when it comes. But it will be available only as a $115-140 kit on its on (or technically a 1-click deal on the website, but whatever)

3 Juggernauts and 5 hounds is about equivalent to 5 seekers and 3 fiends. 10 infantry on each side, Karanak for Khorne and the Slaaneshi herald with harp that is in the art as leaders.

You can tell by the scale of detail on the glove that this is a infantry sized modle. If a KoS that is pretty under detailed for something that large.

They have said there are more new models to come in the box too.
Though whether that just means plastic Karanak and Harp, or two heralds each side (my guess), rather than new units.

New Fiends and Hounds, 4 characters total, then one more unit each? That add up roughly to the usual £95 ish cost?

Or two more units each (one more new one each..)

Time will tell..

The video showed Bloodcrushers, Bloodletters, Daemonettes and Seekers. Looks like it’ll be 10 bloodletters, 3 bloodcrushers, 5 flesh hounds and Karanak vs 10 daemonettes, 5 seekers, 3 fiends and the harp herald.

It’s chaos, for sure, and it definitely looks similar to the plasma cannon of a mauler/forge fiend. That would make it super likely to be an Obliterator. Meaning it’ll probably be Dorn stepping on the crushed body of an Obliterator or something after curb stomping it!

Oooh, Chaos.

Obliterators is a good shout. I could also see it being a new Havocs kit (with more options- namely plasma cannons), or maybe even something for Noise Marines.

I dont know what that is but it looks chaos. I'd love to see the undivided or basic chaos marines get an update. The new blackstone fortress pair make the current csm kit look really dated.

That does make me think mutilators more than oblits. A plastic kit for both could be interesting.

Looking at it, how accurately can we judge the scale from the evident brushstrokes?

Genuine question,

Because this is clearly some kind of plasma weapon. But if we can reasonably inform from the brushstrokes whether it’s pistol, gun or cannon sized?

Dreadnought cannon sized, I'd say. You can't pack that much teeth much smaller.

Thinking maybe Chaos (of course) warhound titan weapon. As others have said looks both big and small at the same time (if that makes any sense).

I'm hoping for chaos marine or maybe obliterator weapon though.

Yeah great observation, looking at the brush strokes and going from 40k, it is most likely a plasma gun, if I had to pick one (or maybe plasma cannon). Could be redone Choas terminators?

Good call on the brush stroke, Mad Doc. I don't think it is going to be a particularly large model, like a Helbrute, given that the highlight look too thick for that.
But is also doesn't look like it would be too small either, like a pistol, due to how many "teeth" are packed in.
It's most likely a medium sized bit, like a plasma gun or arm of an Oblit.

Or it is not 28mm-sized but instead for Titanicus. Then the small size would allow for a Titan-grade Weapon and we're back to square one.

The Obliterator/Mutilator kit has been redone a couple years ago, so I don't think it'll be them. Havocs - or, for that matter a chaos marines basic infantry kit - would be A+, but when was the last time that GW remade the baseline infantry kit for a factions?

Could be for a new, as yet unseen Tank type?

Obliterator kit was redone 15+ years ago, for the 13th Black Crusade that wasn’t Mutilators are just hideous alt arms and bonces.

I wouldn't be surprised by a new Obliterator kit. I'd love it honestly if the Mutilators went the way of the dodo. They were crap in the codex that released with them, which is saying something.

But the Obliterators need a redesign.

I think I'd be happier if it was a new kit though.

I've been collecting Chaos for 20 years and I can't remember a single Chaos kit that had good rules on first release. Maybe the first Obliterator resculpt with Codex 3.5 if you want to count that.

My first thought was maybe some kind of backpack piece, with the arrows suggesting Chaos.

However, upon closer inspection it looks like a tactical map display of a battlefield, with the arrows being routes of attack or something! Some kind of Strategeos or command centre model?
