How do?

A new weekly feature coming to Warhammer Community, as of 1 March 2021.

And they’ve kicked us off with a silhouette. Me, I reckon it’s another Vampire being shown off. Whatever it is, that’s one long handled sword right there!

It’s the Warhammer Community logo, rather than the straight up Aquila.

Someone mentioned Aekhold Helbrass, a slightly obscure Tzeentchian Character from WHFB.

Got to say, they might be on to something.

Got to echo the thought that I find a weekly model reveal more appealing than the rumor engine as it is now. There's stuff like Belakor that you can see coming, but the majority simply lacks context to build any kind of anticipation. At least for me.

So I hope this is a feature that lasts.

You know what would be neat? If the part of the silhouette that is inevitably hair that defies gravity was an elongated Genestealer* head with mouth tentacles looking to the sky in anticipation. Not the least because of the distinct lack of "visionary" poses in GW's model ranges.



* But since it's AoS GW's now just copying the DnD tentacle face dudes. But with three arms! Because AoS!

The problem with the rumour engine is when GW teases a lizard skin and lizardmen/seraphon players get all excited and it turns out to be a dead skin on a character in an entirely different army (once it was even a space marine).

I get that GW likes to tease like that, but its annoying. It sets up hopes and sometimes some of those rumour engines last for a LONG time before being revealed (even before Corona threw a spanner in the works).

Well, to be fair I think the hand on the scaly skin on the would-be-slambo guy in the chaos underworlds warband suggests it came from a saurus warrior, so that must count for something, right?

Sounds like someone's jealous that AOS gets new races and factions :p

Yeah the rumour engine sometimes can be hit-or-miss with the teases. I'm not a fan of their more obtuse teases - The tease should hint towards the nature of the model in question IMO, showing us lizard skin would make everyone think the model itself is a lizard unless its obvious that its being worn as a skin or accessory/decor, etc. from the tease.

Right behind you.

I think the Rumor Engine has its place, but it really needed to have a note as to what system the item was for. That would have helped manage expectations a lot...as would places like BoLS and Spikeybits not running effectively garbage "news" all the dang time.

rumor engine has it's place if it's resolved in like...two months, not a year or 6 months later. All tease with no payoff, and the customer will get bored

I made this mistake too, but that says they'll "be further quenching" our thirst, so that's an additional thing to New Model Monday.

Screen capping the wrong paragraph of the article doesn’t make the rest of it disappear, you know?

Yep the new model today "could" be part of the later week Necromunda reveal, however it would be a bit cheeky to do that on GW's part.

I would assume they are separate and that the Necromunda is likely to be the Water Guild.

There was also more separation between the two in the video than the article. The Necromunda reveal is a separate thing to new model Monday.

Article is up:
Kritza, the Rat Prince

Ex-noble of Ulfenkarn, got beat up by Radukar, accidentally vamped and escaped in the laundry on a corpse cart by feeding on the rats feeding on the corpses. Might be part rat.

Kritza the Rat Prince

I wonder if he’ll be doing double duty in both Cursed City and AoS. They do seem to be linking the 2 more narratively.

DANG! I wanted my vampire to have that backstory. The whole feeding on rats=rat like.

Also, his rat belt insignia looks a lot like the Wolf of Cursed City.

Or it might be tied to the upcoming Death release.
