I think it's a brazier in the shape of a stein.

so I guess we're getting the advent calendar treatment again with an image a day starting tomorrow. Really hope to see more Eldar images in these.

It looks like there's metal rune things in the fire, so I'm guessing it's a brazier that some dwarfy guy tosses runes into to create magical effects.

Maybe a new version of this guy

Looks like an axe with an torch instead of a blade.

That being said, something about the way it looks at first made me think of a helm with a flame on top of it.

It looks like there's still a blade just there's also a brazier. It's probably aos then?

Eldar pony-tail? Could be the rumoured female character for the Idoneth.
Or maybe an actual pony tail [kurnothi?]

The Eldar surround is probably just the graphic for the rumour engine this year, although I suppose it could be a hint in itself.

It's kind of interesting that the Advent Engine is made to look like something Aeldari.

Also feels interesting that it looks almost like the topknots that the Aeldari Rangers have had?

Excited that the engine is Eldar in design. That means we got a big update coming sooner rather than later.

His silhouette was shown though and he has a different topknot [looks braided].
Big eldar release in January? Something in the various rumours of an Eldar release?

Shouldn't that be the Aedventi Engine then?

I'm going to go with it being a horse's tail and the Eldar background just being a red herring. They do say that the Advent Engine is a "gift from the old ones" which could explain the Edlar design choice. If you look where the tie off ends there's a crease in the main body that looks very much like their horse models. No Tau or Eldar have that kind of crease on their heads and GSC are all bald.

The only current Eldar model that had even a bit of a forehead crease is Illic Nightspear. That being said, if they are doing a large range refresh like they've been saying, this could just be the new design direction for them. That being said, the part where the hair connects seems to be a bit too chunky for an Eldar IMHO.

The ponytails do look close for sure, but it's that shaded part in the middle that's really throwing me. Again, unless it's just a new design choice for how Eldar are going to look now. Also, these all fall like natural hair, where the one in the spoiler is much more up, like a horse's tail.

Pretty sure what we're seeing here is hair on the top of the head that is tied into a ponytail, with shaved sides. That's something GW would give their elves and Eldar.

Edit: I should say, top and back, mohawk shaped.

Looks a bit too dynamic for how I'd expect a ranger to be posed, but I could still see it being an eldar.

It being Eldar related is most definitely a probability. What it exactly could be from the roster we don't know. Could be a Ranger, could be an Exarch, could be a Guardian. It being upright is most definitely due to a dynamic pose, I would think.
