You wish. More likely another ninja flip pose, in the new soulless GW style that conveys absolutely no motion, just looks like a person trying to hold a ninja flip pose for an instagram photo (see Harlequins)

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.

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.

Nah, the game doesn't need anything spiky at this time...

Ahhhh.....you won't let me have any fun.

Blame the people who keep classifying anything "fun" as "bloat"

if we're going with the Corsair/Yriel/iyanden theme, that rising piece could be Tyranid and it is just artwork instead of a model.

What's weird is the wording being "defeat" instead of "death" (which would automatically lean toward Ynnari)

Seems like a cheat, though I guess they didn't set rules as to what they'd actually show over the month.

I don't think it's Tyranids, the closer spine has a 'radiator grill' at the base. The bit at the bottom does look like the underside of a Vyper, facing down.

Perhaps some terrain, or Eldar ruins on a maiden or crone world? Kill team set, with rangers gathering Soulstones perhaps

Weren't Karandras actually defeated by Arhra/Drahzar in the duel and fled the scene, but by doing so infuriated Arhra/Drahzar into slaying his own disciples? That would literally be victory in defeat and there are rumours about new Karandras model.

It seems likely that we are getting both Karandras and new striking scorpions. As well as other new plastic aspect warriors too.

I'm hoping this is hinting at a new Avatar too. Eldar has soooo.. many kits that need updating that this had better cover it all.

Only thing we are concrete on is rangers. The jet bike could be updated shining spears. Now those are embarrassing models.

Current Yriel has a spikey tactical Tyranid cadaver on his base, even. Also, isn't basically everything he does somehow victory in defeat or vice versa?

I was just reading his entry in the last codex.
Spoiler:
Didn’t realize that he had been killed, and brought back from death. His cursed spear that was slowly draining his life was actually a crone blade, and gave the stolen life back to him to revive him.

I’m thinking it’s a spine/tower around the arena in Cormmorragh (however you spell it). Defeated on the battlefield to find victory in the pits. Showing a combined Aeldari force, and reunite the imperium with the Khan who won’t be happy that Rowboat has an Eldar girlfriend.

With how crazy GW has gotten recently when it comes to have Swirly Gak(tm) and gratuitous bases with dead primaris lieutenants and other followers-on for centerpiece models, I'd be surprised if the Avatar of Khaine DIDN'T have a bunch of weird stuff alongside it. At the very least expect one dead body of some sort and a giant broken eldar webway portal or runestone for the mandatory tactical rock pose.

I'm expecting him to have a similar base to Be'lakor, except with ruined Eldar architecture and dead Space Marines instead of whatever Be'lakor has.

Yeah pretty much this. If you're lucky there might be dead Daemonettes or Slaaneshi Marines instead.
