I think that weapon could go either way, although I suspect it makes sense that it's a ranger rifle based on the rumours.

So are we getting the likelihood of a ranger kill team as well?

Ah, rangers!
The unit least in need of an update -they have really cool models as it is, but their rules are so bad they would only ever be a waste of points.
*facepalm*

But I guess there is lots of teasers left in the advent rumor calender. I will take this as a promise they will update (upsacale?) every elf in the range.

“Rules are bad” is also not a reason for models not to need updates, especially for Eldar. Classically our internal balance is hot garbage. When the wheel spins for what units are brokenly powerful in the next codex, it might be rangers!

They are also the iconic unit for one of the classic craftworlds, which is more than enough reason for them to get an upgrade.

It was all a cruel joke. Give Eldar fans hope for three days and on the fourth day, when the guard is down, put a dagger in their hearts.

Does anyone think we might possibly be getting new Rangers? I don’t think there are enough Rumour Engines of them yet.

I mean, we still have 20 images to go. Looking forward to seeing what other bones are thrown our way. So we know we're getting Rangers and possibly mounted rangers. Let's see what comes next.

So we are now looking at two or three kits - Ranger bikes, Rangers and maaaybe new Illic. That gives me back a little hope, that there will be ~10-12 kits. I guess we'll see the day after tomorrow if there is any pattern at how many rumours per kit GW has planned.

I am hoping we're going to see something other than just Eldar hints, though - be that something for Age of Silliness, Underworlds, or other Specialist Games.

Not saying Eldar don't deserve the focus, but a little seasoning of something else will improve the main course.

Aye, especially if that "something else" is something in spikey power armour. I want to see some of those new Chosen already.

Most likely these advent previews will be 100% Eldar. Then on Xmas day / New Years they'll show off other new stuff like Darkstrider, whatever's next for AOS, plus an Eldar teaser of some kind.

To be fair, it could be one kit. Ranger topknot, Ranger rifle, ranger posed on crashed jetbike, ranger posed on tactical rock.

But so far, I suspect its two kits. (Rangers on foot/rock and something with a jetbike), with a tiny chance of dark reapers.

Checks out.

That’s the problem with Lictor previews; due to their camouflage, we can’t actually see them. Which is why we only see the base decoration.

Although we can’t rule out new Tau stealth suits.

I know it’s not necessarily super credible, but there has been that rumor floating around that the next KT box will be Eldar vs. Chaos. If you ask me Rangers would be a perfect unit for a Guard Vets/Commando style box.
