Looks more like a fairly small power sword rather than a 'bulky' chainsword. I'd bet on an Exarch or Autarch over Karandras.

DA exarchs currently have a back-mounted power sword with a pommel.

I can't shake a feeling of it being a sabre rather than a power sword.

And it reminds me of the Inquisitor Aeldari Ranger something fierce.

I can see it being sabres. Thin Scimitars maybe?
What ever they are, it looks to be a pair crossed over. I'm thinking more Old World/AOS rather then 40k.

I'm mildly curious as to the relationship between these swords and the greater model it's a part of. It's not a back mounting, because wed be able to see the character. So whatever it Is, its separate from the model.

So, is it on a stand of some sort, a base feature?

They have cut parts of the background/miniatures out for past rumour engines so that’s not an indication that it’s a stand alone piece.

Looks very like the IDK Akhelian King’s back weapon

Yeah initially I thought Autarch/exarch but it might be something form a possible Killteam ranger set.

Idoneth. No questions about it. It's almost identical to one of their existing models.

Was thinking the other day that it's been think on rumoured images for anything elf/eldar, especially with a craftworld release sometime next year. Glad that we have another today. First thing that came to mind for me was Striking Scorpion, no idea why.
I'm expecting them to be 2 of the same weapon, with the pommel on right also having the tassle at the end. The handles are very smooth though, which seems odd. So what entity typically has dual swords/weapons?

Not specifically Rumour Engine, but has GW been sneaky and shown a silhouette of a new Armiger in the “Armies on Parade 2022” on the community site? I don’t recognise the arm (looks like a single melta) and it doesn’t have any hull mounted weapons.

The nearest equivalent is the moirax(?) from FW, it might be a lightning lock, but it really is hard to say.

Edit: pretty sure it is.

I would say it's more Elf than Eldar but if we have Eldar rumoured on the horizon then hopefully it's from that.

I really hope so because I want to get my mitts on Eldar again.

Yeah I think you’re spot on - forgot about the FW variants! Move along, nothing to see then.

With regards to the actual rumour engine, that feels too AoS to me, would love for it to be Eldar though.

No way it's Eldar, because it's almost identical to an existing Idoneth sword.

Not familiar with Idoneth models but after seeing the pic it is for sure Idoneth in style.

I just hope it's a significant addition to their range, and not just a one-off hero.

It has Idoneth tones...buuuuuuuuuut Idoneth tones are basically "Elf/Eldar" tones. Worth looking at the "angle" on the hilts though. The Idoneth piece has much sharper angles compared to the softer parts on the Rumor Engine.

Also worth mentioning that the full piece on the Akhelian King is much broader, flaring out fairly quickly.

IF it's something Idoneth, it's something entirely new with really thin weapons...or a really weirdly flaring out blade.

@toonboy78 on Twitter posted this that seems pretty conclusive that its Idoneth.

And Advent RE confirmed

This week we’ve heard rumours of another engine, more marvellous and obscure than this, revealing a new picture every day ‘til Christmas.

Too late, the damage is done

What are the chances the rumor engines they reveal daily will be revealed at the end of the month? I want to say very, very low.

The vast majority of 2020's advent rumour engine pics were revealed in Jan/Feb/March. Looks like two of them are still unresolved.
