The latest one definitely looks like AdMech.

And I'll go out on a limb and say that it's DARK Mechanicum, with the keys being a conceptual nod to the Vaults of Moravec. "Unlocking" forbidden knowledge and all that.

Nah, in that case the key would be half an 8-pointed star. GW is subtle like that.

I'm going to go in a completely different direction and guess that the keys make this relate to the Dark Angels in some way. The key motif has been used in Dark Angels stuff before and they're the only non-codex chapter that hasn't received some sort of campaign book.

DA don't have anything to with the mechanicum though and that's clearly a half cog. At least to my knowledge.

Post by: Starfarer


Well, we have Imperial agents right around the corner, so it is probably a techpriest or Inquisition model. Inquisitors have lots of keys as well, so I really doubt it is Dark Angels, especially with the half cog mechanicus bit.


Warhammer Community Rumor Engine Thread - page 101 latest hint @ 2016/11/30 17:51:42


Post by: Unix


True, but the cog motif has shown up on marines in the recent past, most notably on the Deathwatch Overkill sprues. It definitely looks like a servitor arm and I wouldn't be surprised if it was some kind of mechanicus thing, but servitor arms and cogs, while part of the mechanicus iconography, are hardly unique to their models and if I'm right the Dark Angels are the only ones who have been sporting keys in the past. Not saying you're wrong, just stirring the pot since there's no way to say anything conclusively anyway.

Inquisition does make sense to me though considering the upcoming releases.

Indeed, Inquisition also crossed my mind, it could very well be a henchman carrying around the personal belongings of the Inquisitor, including a set of keys, which or may not be ceremonial.

Grey Knights also have key bits. It's not a Dark Angels thing specifically.

Personally I'd love to see some new servitors that are as creepy as the tech priests Ad Mech has.

Frankly, Inquisition needs models for basically everything since it's all metal and finecast currently.

It's obviously not a Marine arm so I'd probably rule out a Marines. It's a little spindly AdMech arm so that's the safest bet.

You definitely converted me with your the Inquisition argument. We know they're coming, they need models, the key motif fits them, and a servitor would make a great retinue member.

It's obviously something ad mech.

But much like the other 'vague' images released, it is fruitless to get excited about because GW has been known to sit on product for a long time, that has been done. These things could come out in 4mo to a year. Tough to get excited about it.

Perfect example: Ad mech was split into two different books, they milked that cow dry purely for profits. They didn't need to, but now will be at some point releasing a third combo book for them.

Either release product or keep it secret, just rip that bandaid off already.

Same. Thought some sort of undead guy with the keys to the underworld. They were a artifact the god mor gave to sigmar a when he was mortal in the 2nd time of legends book. They let him talk to his dead farther and some other plot important stuff.

But the enhanced pic and the cog makes it clear that was wrong.

Chaos Dwarfs don't really make too much sense considering most of them have their own god (Hashut), but I suppose if it was a splinter group, or they've been mostly scattered from each other for a while..

The Mechanicum don't seem to realize that it's a C'tan. I'm really hoping they wake the Void Dragon so we can get a badass new LoW Awakened C'tan.

That keyring is totally Mechanicus, but being a keyring I'd love it to be a Dark Mechanicus.

That whirling screaming faces, eye symbols and Druchii violet are definitively Tzeentchian. Arcanite disc or scenery.

There seems to be a recurring belief that when AoS starts a new "season" in its story line there is going to be a new starter set to go with it. There was speculation about a Nurgle vs Sylvaneth box as well. As cool as it would be to get a 2nd starter its IMO just wish listing.

Yeah, rumors all the way back before this year kept saying the Silver Tower game would be the Tzeentch vs Duardin starter set but were only half right about a Silver Tower game.

So with the recent hints it's looking like the old rumor may have some weight to it about the starter release.

We'll have to wait and see, though. I doubt it will arrive before the general's handbook 2.0 release.

It makes plenty of sense. There's a longstanding rumor that the Tzeentch Arcanites are scheduled to be fleshed out for Age of Sigmar and we've already seen GW tease the Tzaangors for them as well.


The December edition of WD, inside front cover in the Meet The White Dwarf Team, under the blurb for Stuart Edney, it does say:

"Stuart's been terrorising the battlefields of the Mortal Realms with his Tzeentch Arcanites this month..."

So I'm pretty sure rumour confirmed

Also the latest Rumour Engine I'm thinking possibly a disc mounted model (there's a black blob which looks like a hole for a peg), maybe even a unit of the blighters (Chaos Warriors on discs like the good ol' days)?

That looks quite Elven to me, maybe Aelves are coming in the future? Bearing in mind though, there's no timeline on these, and the studio starts work on projects about 7 years before release, so a painted figure could be between 1 and 5 years old before the sprue gets released.

Following that logic Sisters are at least 10 years away.

It looks like a dress hem honestly so it could be Aelf or any kind of "wizardy/Noble "

Dark/Shadow Elves/Aelfs? As Azreal13 pointed out, the thorn pattern is similar to the Dark Eldar deck design. The two new elves in Silver Tower were Shadow Elves, so we may be seeing them soon'ish.

Shadowkin is the term that's been used for them in the past, just so everyone knows.

They got first mentioned in the big AoS book, and are led by Malerion.

Definitely a larger base, maybe 50mm, and the purple thing can only really be the tail of a cloak trailing on the ground. What it might be attached to, however, I have little idea except that it is most likely on foot and Eldar. Would be quite a surprise if it turned out to be an Aelf.

FYI there are tons of Gems all over the Ravager and raider, that share the same design in the deck plate.

Looks to be a long flowing coat/cloak of some kind. And while I said early it is Lady Malys, she perhaps is riding something, as the base does look bigger?

Do all skimmers still come with clear bases?
Do DE have anything other than Skimmer type vehicles?

Not for nothing, but wasn't there a long dead (maybe even long-debunked) rumor about Vect having a model float around? Im a shameless Deldar player so Im more than happy to wishlist that.

But the truth of the matter is after seeing the hint of the obvious mechanicus hand(with the keys), I can only imagine that GW is bouncing back and forth between showing us 40k and AoS. If the Mechanicus stuff is definitely 40k, then the swirly staff and this flowing cloak I lean are definitely AoS.

No they don't. You get a few of those blister type things around the spars of the sail but thats it, no actual gems.

Yes, they come with the clear bases and other than Flyers DE have no vehicles that aren't skimmers.

I think it's an Aelf of some kind for Sigmar, they've just reused the design pattern for the Raider/Venom/Ravager decking as a texture on that cloak.

Because purple cloth is exclusive to the Dark Eldar? It's covered in gems, which is definitely not a Dark Eldar thing, more Craftworld if anything from 40K.

Dark Eldar can be pretty stylish. Robes made from some poor beastie's pelt, or silk cloak woven from some doomy silk worm thing. Plus they like to torment people, so stealing someone's spirit stone and fitting it on their pimp-ride wouldn't be too hard to imagine.

More along the lines of craft world specifics, I'd love to see rangers be useful again, AP2 on a 5+ instead of 6 and some fluffy rules, possibly let them use battle focus with their long rifles and plastic minis .

Scrz from thedarkcity might have cracked the case on the DE model. He looked back at these old rumors. More and more of these are coming true. I remember being ridiculoud quite a lot when I mentioned this rumor back then. Not to mention no one beleived me Eldard was coming, but that's a bygone. http://natfka.blogspot.ca/2016/07/40k-8th-edition-campaigns-exciting-look.html?m=1

As posted by Scrz.

Scrz wrote:According to an old rumor that has had a lot of correct info so far Volossian Sythrac of the Black Heart is Dark Eldars next new centerpiece model.  

Whoever wrote the Dark eldar codex wrote:Archon Volossian Sythrac prized possessions are his collection of soul traps - vile devices that act much like the spirit stones of the Craftworld Eldar, though in a far more hideous and predatory way. The act of parting a soul from its mortal body is child’s play to Sythrac. A single scratch from his ancient huskblade will turn his victims to dust in seconds. The disembodied soul, torn so quickly from its physical vessel, is then easy prey for the spirit vortex of Sythrac’s rapacious soul trap. Once a soul is claimed within for all eternity, its captive energies harnessed to energise Volossian Sythrac’s ancient body.

(Emphasis is mine).

That could explain the gems, and the strange vortex like thing in the previous rumor image.
I don't think the staff is DE related. Not enough knives attached to it.
The grit of the sand on the base under the cape/cloth looks like it is a smaller base in a really close up photo. The brush strokes on the model indicates the same. That the cloth looks like it is close to the ground could be a compression effect from the picture being taken with high focal length. Which means that the cloth does not have to be that close to he decking either. For instance it appears to have the same color but is not highlighted in the same way as the cloth , which is odd if it is directly connected. Then again, the small creases in the top and bottom left side, makes it look like the cloth is steeply angled upwards right there which in turn might mean that it IS something that is dragged along the ground like a cape.
Oh how I love to over analyze things...

Seems that way. Also I was no aware they had a decurion style formation. In that case they good.

Edit
If it turns out it is Sythrac then that means we need to take a hard look at that 40k rumor since it paints a very good picture of things to come.

Whoever wrote the Dark eldar codex wrote:Archon Volossian Sythrac prized possessions are his collection of soul traps - vile devices that act much like the spirit stones of the Craftworld Eldar, though in a far more hideous and predatory way. The act of parting a soul from its mortal body is child’s play to Sythrac. A single scratch from his ancient huskblade will turn his victims to dust in seconds. The disembodied soul, torn so quickly from its physical vessel, is then easy prey for the spirit vortex of Sythrac’s rapacious soul trap. Once a soul is claimed within for all eternity, its captive energies harnessed to energise Volossian Sythrac’s ancient body.

(Emphasis is mine).

That could explain the gems, and the strange vortex like thing in the previous rumor image.
I don't think the staff is DE related. Not enough knives attached to it.
The grit of the sand on the base under the cape/cloth looks like it is a smaller base in a really close up photo. The brush strokes on the model indicates the same. That the cloth looks like it is close to the ground could be a compression effect from the picture being taken with high focal length. Which means that the cloth does not have to be that close to he decking either. For instance it appears to have the same color but is not highlighted in the same way as the cloth , which is odd if it is directly connected. Then again, the small creases in the top and bottom left side, makes it look like the cloth is steeply angled upwards right there which in turn might mean that it IS something that is dragged along the ground like a cape.
Oh how I love to over analyze things...



Thanks for posting that link again, that's the rumour I meant and woops I meant to say I think the DE is that guy, I remember seeing Vect in the rumour so thought he was supposed to be the character.

Really hope this turns out to be true, all those new plastics seem glorious. I would buy every single set. He mentions the next books but how they aren't set in stone, this could really be just an outline as he states but the part about the EoT campaign, he mentions the SW and DA have to race to Cadia, isn't that exactly what they are doing at the end of WoM?

The rumour threw me off a bit with the Magnus being described as red armour and flying with wings but perhaps just mistook the red skin and outstretched wings as something else? The mid casting spell is pretty spot on, as is Kharn and Eldrad and Rubric Termies are almost spot on too.

I really want this to be true, mostly for the plastic KoS.

Shadowkin are the only "new" type of Dark Elves we're going to see. From what we know of them, they're led by Malerion, they dwell within the Realm of Shadow, and the Saih Mistweaver and
Tenebral Shard are examples of their aesthetic and what we can expect from them.


The original Dark Elves became "Exiles" initially with the PDF Warscrolls, which further got subdivided into the following subfactions in the Grand Alliance Order book:
-Darkling Covens(Warriors of all types, Sorceresses, Executioners, and Black Guard)
-Daughters of Khaine(Cauldron of Blood and Bloodwrack Shrine, Witch Aelves, Sisters of Slaughter, and Doomfire Warlocks)
-Order Serpentis(War Hydra, Drakespawn Chariots[Cold Ones' new name], Drakespawn Knights, and Dreadlord on Black Dragon)
-Scourge Privateers(Corsairs, Fleetmasters, Kharibdyss, Scourgerunner Chariot)
-Shadowblades(Assassins and Dark Riders)

The last has to be Sythrac the gems fit his DE evilness. He steals/creates soul gems and stores the souls of those he kills in them to power certain technology.

Not to mention it has the raider grate insignia on it and images leaked of a DE boardgame of some sort. At this point anyone who bets it is not a DE model is going to be the kid who eats glue in class.

First thought was evil candy cane.

Anyway, a Griffhound tail looks possible but it's also worrying me with that color scheme. Since the theme of Tzeentch is his infiltrating Order cities with cultists, could it mean we're going to see chaos Griffhounds corrupted by chaos cultists?

Going to be a little sad seeing them turned from noble creatures into crazed beasts that need to be put down.

Probably not. The various previews have been from different things.

I'm actually thinking that this might be something Duardin rather than Shadowkin. The haft of the harpoon is all metal rather than wood or bone.

The circular detail is painted as a glowing light rather than a gemstone, so it's something powered. For AoS Steamhead Duardin is a good guess, I'd say. Could be almost anything if it's 40K - the rivets don't exactly scream Eldar, Tau, etc, though, so almost certainly Imperial.

1) I would truly loose my gak over the addition of fish-men race to 40k. I would LOVE it. More cool alien species (to be crushed by a resurgent Imperivm, naturally) please. (And yes, I would buy them)

2)If not fish men, that would make a cool Custodian jet biker pike.

Eh, looks more fantasy than 40k. Not industrial enough.
Its probably a Tzeentch thing or a new AoS thing.

Fishmen would be interesting, but I don't think its the right time to start introducing new armies. 40k already has a lot of stuff to slog through.

Hmmm. It depends. That teaser of the cloak on the floor base looks very DE. If it is something for Gangs of Commoragh then this may be related as well. May we a Hellion or Reaver upgrade?

However it is the blue that's throwing me off. That shade of blue so far has been associated with Order, either Elves or Stormcast. So this may be something Elfish or the Duardin have lightning spears.

Love to see some new handmaiden infantry models for Neferata - but it does look very dark Eldar/Dark Elvish - but then Nef did have a working relationship with the DE's (well one of the corsair captains)

I'd say the jewels match very nicely, though the layering on Neferata's cloak doesn't match the teaser. Still, could be someone related to Neferata.

Yup the runes on the crossbow look sigmarish and considering the story is dealing with the mortal cities I highly suspect its free people or devoted of sigmar. Since it has sigmarite runes I am thinking it's devoted of sigmar since they are the ones who are meant to stop the tzeentch nonsense.

I don't think it's duardin it has sigmarite runes on it. I think it's devoted of sigmar, in the context of the current narrative it makes sense.

I am hedging my bets on devoted of sigmar they would not give the faction a new hero model for no reason, also if you try and run the gryph hound with him for some reason it breaks the devoted allegiance and stormcast already have a mounted crossbow option. Still the runes on the weapons are clearly sigmarite.

Also about the crescent moon. It's not only a stormcast thing the new warrior priest has it as well and the same scroll runes attached to his gear in context of the tzeentch narrative it makes sense it will be devoted of sigmar I could be wrong but why would GW give devoted of sigmar a new model for sliver tower? Also I recall on facebook GW said it won't be the last we see of devoted.
