Not sure how accurate, but I’ve heard “ranger jetbike” tossed around. Which would give us that swept back look.

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.





Good point. Also if it actually does turn out to be a Warp Spider Exarch, I would lose my collective gak. Back when I got into 40k in 3rd ed, I was debating between Space Marines and Eldar as my starting army. I thought the Warp Spiders were super cool, but I didn't really like the look of their monopose metal models vs plastic space marines. So I went the SM route with the decision that I would seriously get into Eldar once they got new Warp Spider Models.... I'm still waiting.

Big eldar release in January? Something in the various rumours of an Eldar release?

I don't think that's happening, Blackfang.

There's definitely some Lictor and another Tyranid's bits and some bits that look very Guard/Guard-adjacent though.

Do we think the runes on the frame have significance? They remind me of the exodite runes from the 2nd ed codex.

It's apparently an Old One device... so I guess the Eldar take their aesthetics from the Old Ones far more than the Krork did.

I suspect the frame is just a decorative element, but let's assess it after another couple of days, where we can see if it is a static element, or if it changes with each preview.

It does indeed. But more Dark than Craftworld to my eyes?

No, ignore. Just checked the current ones and it’s now a standard Eldar look.

Yep, the first one was a Ranger, and this one is his Jetbike.

I’m very happy if all they show is craftworld teases. But having a clearly Aos themed image would confirm if the Eldar themed design around the pics is an obvious eldar tease or just gw just having the design because eldar have foresight

I might as well set my wallet on fire now.

Before we go to far down the jetbike route though, I'd still consider this an updated Vyper. Although the old one doesn't have the engine exhaust, could be an updated look.

<hands over the matches>

Like it maters to our wallets what kind of jetbike adjacent thing it belongs to? Vyper, ranger, shining spear, autarch, or whatever else it is, you know the hobby budget is taking it right on the chin.

Did you guess yesterday’s Advent Engine picture? Really? Hmm, time will tell. Let’s see how you get on with today’s mystery image.


It's almost like they're aware of the "leaks" elsewhere and they're trolling us in the Warhammer Community article, heh.

Still eldar big release for 2022 anyway.

As far as I'm concerned, they can even have Wraithguard on motojets.
