I hope that instead of a big monster or named character, Steamhead just get a massive airship that's bigger than a Dragon and bristling with guns and armedcrew. Would be a good shakeup from the current aesthetic (which I like, but change is cool).

I get that. it is just odd that so many of the rumour engine hints have been revealed to either be 40K, with only 1-2 AoS so far. It is also odd that a few hints are still waiting that have been out for longer than the hints that have been revealed.

Yet so far ZERO have been Duradin. Are Duradin rumored to have a release soon? Or does everything 40K that is remotely "steam-punk" automatically invoke the "dwarves" response?

And except Cawl ZERO have been AdMech. Besides, the "Steam-punk" look of the mechanicum has a different color palette and look than this one.

It's how they do market research.

Exec 1: "What should be make next?"

Exec 2: "No clue. What do these nerds want, anyway?"

Exec 1: "I have an idea so crazy, It. Just. Might. Work. You, web boy. Post a rotated picture of a random bit from something that is coming out soon. And make it out of focus."

Web Guy: "Ok, then."

4 days later.

Web Guy "Sir, nearly 80% of the guesses are for dwarves."

Exec 1 picks up phone: "Sculpting team? Yes. Give me dwarves. How many? All of them!"

That's how it's done!

Yep.

The first Rumour Engine was clearly a Dwarfen construction of some kind, as you saw the classic Ancestor Face. The big spear thing? I'm not sure that's Dwarven myself, as it's not an army I usually associate with the spear.

The door? Shape and simplicity of the piece suggest Dwarfen to me as well - if it was Mechanicus, I'd expect far more embellishment.

And this? Sure, it has common design cues to the Phosphor Pistol - but the rest of it doesn't look especially Mechanicus. Bottled Lightning also riffs off Seraphon and Stormcast...

People who have talked to the painting teams at events have been told the figures in more recent books are 3D prints. This came out with the last 8th edition Dwarf book because people were accusing the painters of being sloppy due to the appearance of a "finger print" on one of the new dwarf figures.

The paint studio starts working on the figs while the molds are still being produced. They actually produced some some small scale Mawcrushers for the paint studio to develop paint schemes for the AoS Ironjaws. They were on display at a Warhammer World open event and led initially to speculation of a new version of Warmaster.

This is a really confusing one. For a start it could easily be from (nearly) any range they do which doesn't help. However, the confusing part is the colour. It looks more like FW resin than GW plastic, but there are quite obvious print lines from the 3D printer GW uses to print their CAD miniatures (look at the lower skull), whereas FW does theirs all by hand at the scale they mould at.

I'm 100% convinced this is FW resin. FW doesn't do everything by traditional hand sculpting these days. I think I'm right in saying that the Solar Auxilia range was the first that are entirely CAD in FW's catalogue. It's also the case that, if you look very closely at the Solar Auxilia, you can make out the print lines on some surfaces. The cost of 3D printing depends a lot on the resolution you print at. What a lot of companies do, is use a fairly low quality print and then do lots of manual clean up. FW seems to take the route of doing a very high quality print, which then doesn't need cleaning up by resculpting spoiled details. So, there are a few (barely) visible print lines in some areas, but not enough to be a problem.

I'm pretty sure FW uses 3d printing.

Both companies would produce prototypes using the same techniques, so this doesn't get us any closer to figuring out what that thing is.

The front sort of looks like material is bent away from the skull thingie, like pierced armour. A couple of years ago I would've guessed "battle damaged Fantasy cybot", but nowadays GW makes far sharper blades. Unless it's a tiny, skull-encrusted dagger.

But tgis whole post is just a front for me saying: I would have been all over a range of made to order small scale prints of monsters. The new gribblies are all way too big to paint or transport well. A tiny Warboss going with a tiny Maw Crusha would've been so cute to boot. Or not. At half scale he'd still be close to a regular Ork in size, wouldn't he

There's clearly chainmail in there. That's pretty rare in 40k, so I'm leaning towards AoS. Battle damage makes any of the Order factions unlikely, but it's difficult to narrow it down further. I'm leaning towards a chaos warrior of nurgle, since the round thing looks a lot like besagues seen on previous chaos warriors, mail is most likely to be seen on chaos warriors, undead or orrucks and nurgle or slaanesh seem like they should expect some new releases soon (and it looks a lot more like what I would expect from nurgle than slaanesh).

Going with that and some comments in the past from Atia, I'm going to say that they're Pestigors.

It actually makes a kind of sense. We never got a Battletome for Rotbringers, and Disciples of Tzeentch had Tzaangors in there too.

Considering its being attacked by a bloodthirster, a usually airborne unit...it's probably a flying contraption. I'm kind of glad as that is what I was hoping for since the original dwarf image was shown.

If they want to give AoS its own particularly unique identity they have to go away from the more stereotypical depiction of dwarfs. And this could work out well, definitely could end up being my first AoS army I try to collect in any serious way.

It would make since, if the time line advanced, dwarfs would advance in their tech.

I really feel AoS is making races look really individual. The Wood Aelves in particular are a good example. Wood Aelves in the old world looked just like dark Aelves or High Aelves just painted different. Now they feel more feral and back to the wild.
I would be ok with Dwarfs looking less dwarf and more steam punk

It more than resembles it. If you have Nagash handy, it matches his crown with a stylized skull in it and his "bone wings".

I suspect if WHQ continues to sell well you'll see a load of expansions. It's dead easy to photoshop up some floor tiles and assemble a small pamphlet with rules - toss in some plastic minis and hit the print button. If you get people excited about it and they spend $60-80 a dozen times you've done well.

For me, Quest is pretty much them printing munneh.

Provided they manage to avoid model repitition, I'll keep on buying whatever they put out.

That said, provided the heroes are kept new, I'm not adverse to having increasing numbers of random rank and file stuff - the more of those I gather to me, the more dungeons I can easily design and populate.

It kind of reminds me of Undead though design wise. So in a long shot as a side bet new Undead?

While my first thought was "sewer" too , it could just as likely be a window, like a medieval prison cell window kind of thing. It could be 40k but the sector imperialis also has sewer grates which look nothing like this.Though, personally, I find the sector makes no sense, not even as a pedestrian zone, never mind as a road so perhaps they're making alternative terrain.

Abbaddon's back-scracther/toilet paper (he uses one tool for both). Millenia inside that armor is murder on the skin, and that Talon doesn't make a great body tool, he learned after the first time.

The two limb design does have a Slaaneshi vibe to it. A winged Steed would most likely look like that.

Yeah, but so would any number of the "Spites" that are in the Sylvaneth/Wood Elf kits when painted dark grey.

Honestly, it looks more like some of the designs for "Evil Fairies" that got done for the Dark Elf zones in Warhammer Online than it does anything Slaaneshi.

We've known their name since the launch of Age of Sigmar. They get namedropped in Fyreslayers as well, with one of the Lodges having been influenced by their style of fighting(hit and fade).

Aren't those their codenames? Much like MTG's blocks have crazy names until their reveal? E.g: Innistrad's block was named Shake - Rattle - Roll while in development.

I sincerely doubt that.

Shadowkin have had multiple mentions since the main rulebook; Red Slayers and Steamhead didn't appear aside from one or two snippets.

I will support you, and also say that Æ is the coolest character out there, only beaten by ⌬ and ⎃. Maybe ⎉.
So I support the use of Æ wherever possible. For my future dwarves, I hereby declare it's not aether, it's æther.

I really like it because of that reason but on the other hand it's boring because it's still just elf. Now Aeldari or something else mystical sounding would've been a better idea for them. (IMO)

My guess is that the IP is worth more than the models. Or maybe that's what they're calculating. Rights to video games, movies what have you. Maybe?


oh and... the reason I searched this out was because I saw a Warhammer community link regarding 8th ed rumors. Looking for that discussion.... is that here or elsewhere?
Rumors like:
- bringing back the Movement Value per model
- no more initiative in the assualt?
- bonuses for all one race
- morale change to something like 5th/6th ed fearless.

Is that on this thread?

Well that's not the racial title change like in AoS. Imperial guard is to astra Militarum what space marine is to Adeptus Astartes. To apply AoS name changes you'd have human become humyn for example.

Besides IP it also helps differentiate the setting from others when someone's looking for information and models.

That's meant to say Dwarfs, I hope? Otherwise this insulting misspelling of a proud races' name will go right into the book of grudges


I'm not fond of the renames myself and they probably hurt themselves with online searches. Searching for "Orc weapon compatible with GW Orruk Brutes" will show third party kits while searching for both "Orruk" and "Orc", but searching for "Orc", as most newcomers would probably do, won't show them GW's new range. But I don't have to call them that, just like I don't have to move my armies from their Old World settings in my mind. Who'll force me? And if they should fight agains AoS exclusive races or minis, well that was clearly just a dream the general was having

People actually call them Astra Militarum? For real, I've not heard it said once from anyone but a GW employee

I could understand their motivation for the various name changes... if they offered any! If nothing else, their execution of the changes was pretty poor IMO.

Given the name change occurred at the height of GW's Age of Darkness as part of its insane 'MAKE EVERYTHING COPYRIGHTABLEWJSWGJESGEHGIEG'... I'd be very surprised if within another two editions they don't just change it back to 'Imperial Guard'. They'll still use Astra Militarum for the High Gothic organisational charts the same way they do Adeptus Astartes, but everything from store branding to company talk will go back to the Guard.

I think even GW employees stopped trying to refer to them as Astra Militarum.

Are we really going to go through the whole Inception like multi level off topic to discover the whinging about AoS names was nothing to do with the topic either? Nor is 99% of the permawhinge?

But by all means pick posts in the middle of loads of off topic and tell us how terrible we are

I'm not telling anyone is terrible, but I will throw a bucket of fresh sense to chill out some guys if I can.

I don't actively promote topic deviation, but is not like we get more than one Rumour Engine per week, to be fair.

Ah, so via pointless hyperbole. Gotcha.

Maybe not waste yours or (more importantly) everyone else's time in future with this sort of petty nitpicking? If one can demonstrate an opinion is held by more than one person, as has been done, then saying 'we' is perfectly acceptable.

Just checked out the first post and wanted to point out some stuff that has not been updated. The nagash face is from shadespire. You can see it on some of the boards used at the preview event.
The circle armour plate is from the Deathguard release.
That leaves 4 unsloved. The glowing thing is probably mechanicus. It very similar to the datasmith's back pack.
The recent one is almost certainly shadow Aelves. The other two are a mystery still.

The spikes on the left and right sides of the metal bits look more like they're intended to be decorative for the flesh hooks rather than part of the beasty.

The more I look at it though, the more I think that this is definitely supposed to be something dug into the flesh of a critter. It's the kind of bit that would likely be optional between a dual kit build, where one variant can be "ridden" by someone or another can be it roaming free and nomnomming its way through the baddies.

There has been mention of one "sky pirate" faction, and that's the Grotbag Scuttlers introduced with the Kharadon Overlords.

Nothing about the Shadowkin("Shadow Aelves") made mention of "sky pirates". The closest thing would be the Scourge Privateers, but even then they're less "Sky Pirates" and more "Realm Privateers" as they travel the various realms, getting up to no good.

Scourge Privateers are already out.
The Black Ark Corsairs, Fleetmaster, Scourgerunner Chariot, and Kharibdyss are all Scourge Privateer stuff at the moment.

Grotbag Scuttlers maybe, but since we don't even get the Kharadon stuff until late April...or know literally anything about them other than "sky pirates" and "Grots", it's pretty difficult to definitively say:
"Yes these are Grotbag Scuttlers"
or
"No these are not Grotbag Scuttlers"

What we do know is that there has been rumblings from reliable rumormongers about Shadowkin coming, and since we know as little about them as we do the Grotbag Scuttlers...

Have we heard absolutely anything from any rumormonger about another ship-based faction? Not that I'm aware of. What we have heard (from one of our most reliable sources) is that we are likely to get a Lovecraftian Aelf faction and Skaven, neither of which have been mentioned in conjunction with "sky pirates".

And "Lovecraftian" could basically mean anything from any of Lovecraft's works. It's not an exceedingly helpful term, yet people are immediately jumping on it as meaning "tentacle monsters".

Never mind that a big part of Lovecraft's works deals with forbidden knowledge; say something that Malerion and his followers have cribbed from their enslavement of Slaanesh...

I think it's scourge privateers they have been featuring a lot in the lore lately the city of secrets and the new warhammer quest. Thinking about it they have enough units to receive the "sylvaneth treatment" they are also clearly styled to be Cthulhu/deep one themed also an extract from city of secrets.

Gonna spoiler tag it just in case people haven't read the book. 


Spoiler:
"Something" muttered Toll. "Something I'd hoped avoid using." 

He withdrew a small oval object. It looked almost viscous in his hands, glimmering dully in the soft lighth of the glow-oil lamps. As callis watched, the witch hunter gently caressed the edge of the object, and it quivered organically." 

What in sigmar's name is that thing? Said Callis, his stomach squirming in disgust. 

"This," replied toll, "is a kraken's eye. It's also a method of direct communication to the one of the most dangerous people in the city. And if I use it, I'll be in that person's debt. Which, historically, has never been a good place to be."

"Worse that being tortured to death by a mad cult leader in his underground dungeon?" 

"Potentially. Now quiet. And stand back." 

Toll muttered a word. At least, Callis assumed it was a world, a glottal mumur that sounded like the death rattle of some aquatic monster. Instantly, the organ in the witch hunter's hand contracted and pulsed. Black ink poured from the eye, coalescing into a vaguely oval shape, the size of a full length mirror. Shapes writhed and moved in the depths of the darkness.

"Zenth," the witch hunter repeated. I'm calling in my favour. Now answer me, damn you."

The ink swirled and reshaped, and now a humanoid outline was visible within the mass. Slowly the rippling surface calmed, and the outline came into a sharper focus.


Of course I could be totally wrong but the last two rumor images I think fit the theme of scourge privateers also there must be some secret to their success a pact with Malerion or something like that. 

Also war of sigmar post on it.

I asked my local tentacle expert. I'm pretty sure it's a coiled tentacle, and not a shell. I must agree.

I only hope all this pirate and sky stuff means there'll be some more Swifthawk stuff. They did the whole flying seamen thing first, even if GW made a huge mess with the pricing and availability. They really should stick around. Not expanding them would be a bit premature. Maybe a a few giant swallows for the flying seamen to ride. It might be a stetch to fit them inside a force of seamen, but whatever, just takes a bit of elbow grease.

I'll stop now.

But I actually do like the Skycutter, just not the GW Direct price, so I never bought one for my tiny IoB HElves force. Battletome Swifthawk Agents sounds pretty cool, too, and wouls make a nice adversary for creepy deep sea elves, goblin pirates AND flying dwarfs.

You know it's happening.

Who's real moody and lives in the sea?

Spongebob Sea Aelves!

Emo and purple, they like to be!

Spongebob Sea Aelves!

If nautical adventures be something you wish.

Spongebob Sea Aelves!

Then drop on the deck and get beat with a fish!

Spongebob Sea Aelves!


As for HE.... they need some sort of airship or sea vessel that is like an aircraft carrier.

So a giant eagle, or sea dragon, that carries hawks and riders on it back.

See, Magical-Steampunk Corporate Skyprivateer Dwarfs, Spongebob Cthulu Elves, (hopefully)Spider-Gobbo Ramshackle Skypirates - where was all this before? Nearly two years of Land Marines, Slightly Bigger Orcs, and More Khorne Because It's Always Khorne seems like such a wasted opportunity if they had all this mental stuff in their back pocket.

I don't think the Sky Grots are going to be spiders, if only because silvertowers spider gobbo's are because of Tzeentch and crazy Silver Tower magic.

yeah. This stuff seems good enough to make us (nearly) forget the 2 horrible years of sigmarine. What were they thinking?

Bloated Squig ships, tiny-winged beasties being forced to fly via Grot-magic, strapped with giant platforms and 'sails'.
I can see it now.

Bravo sir! Depending on how they look I'm going to be real torn on who to start this year. Dwarves or Elfs.

Damn you, now I want to do a Grotty salvaged Kharadron frigate covered in rust and crude patches and held aloft by gas-squigs.

Well, maybe they focused on a faction similiar to Space Marines, they thought would sell well and the ever present arch enemy of everything, Chaos, to introduce a new system and recover from dwindling WHFB sales, while going into full brainstorming/production mode for new factions for the next two years and we're now seeing the results of this?

Spider Riders with balloons. Not like Kharadron balloons, but just rubber ones. Archanarok Spider tied to 4000 pelicans.

Why not have the spiders suspended by those silk "parachutes" that baby spiders make? That would be fun.

And by magic, we mean grots shoveling gassy vegetables in one end so "propulsion" comes out the other.
