Do we have a list anywhere of the Rumour Engine posts from 2020 that haven't been matched to a model yet? Might be worth including the "unsolved" in here too.

The top rocket is a common design on the boyz kit. The whole thing looks like it could be attached to a backpack. I would love a plastic squiggoth kit. It would help add character to the ork line. I use to kitbash the fantasy orcs with the 40k orks to make my snakebites boyz. It would be good to see some clan specific bits to spice up my different boyz units. Hopefully we see some of the gaps filled in the ork line soon.

Looking at what was posted above my Mobilesuit, I honestly expect to see a chunk of death this year.

We have a weapon that is bone reaper (really unmistakeable)
Tons of undead looking parts.

The crab claw could be a weird one though.
Too crab like for slaanesh, so my bets are either deepkin or (please be) vampire coast.


At this point in time, vampire coast would be an easy sale.
Lore, artwork, ideas etc - it’s already there.
We even have in-depth unit info thanks to total war.
They have all the groundwork laid for them.

They are a popular concept already and plenty of people like them.

They can be different enough from what we already have in the death line.


It’s generally wishful thinking, but I’d love to see it this year.

the bonereaper weapon is most likely for the underworld warband that will come this year

Gathering the Informations.

Vampire Coast, as far as I have seen, is not a thing in AoS...which would make it extremely unlikely for the crabclaw to be tied to them.

On the flipside though, it would be interesting to start to see some of the warbeasts that the Idoneth Embailors(the beastmasters only mentioned in lore so far) via Underworlds.

Unfortunately it’s a bit too terrain-y for a blood bowl team so I guess the new Amazons will have to wait for a while.

Given that we have the Lumineth getting multiple factions, sort of like stormcast chambers, it would be nice to have some deepkin groups, besides "regular elves with eyes" and "eyeless pale elves." I've always assumed whatever the claw rumor engine is, is a hand, but it totally could be just an AOS crab and one of the Underworld "pets", alongside the Godsworn dog, sabretusk, and a few other things.

Although I don't think we have any Vampire Coast lore bits, a lot of factions have been introduced and handwaved as being part of the "necroquake" or hidden until now. Plus, that New Year's Eve video showed a guy that looks like he has a nautical themed cloak (though it wasn't covered in barnacles and that seems like something GW would do)

I would LOVE for the Amazons to show up for bloodbowl, but at the same time am really afraid they are just gonna be Eschers under a different name. But at the time time the new slaaneshi mortals give me a limited amount of hope that GW could find the right balance between cool, classy, and old school "pulp-amazon" aesthetics that the old models and PC game had.

But I'm not expecting it.

The lizard could be part of an artwork as well, and not a model. They teased Warhammer: Underworlds game boards with the rumour engine before, and the cover of the 8th edition index books.

I’ll dig out the book as it’s mentioned a few times in one of the battletomes.
Granted, it’s not a 5 page spread, but it mentions them plenty, so it’s an acknowledgment of their existence.

Gathering the Informations.

The closest I can think of was the Wraith Fleet from the Firestorm Campaign...and that was more just "Nagash undead" than "Vampire Coast".

Vampires, as far as we've seen in AoS, aren't free to act like they were in WHFB. Nagash has a hold on things.

There was a tease of something Sylvaneth-y a few months back so that might be part of the base.

They did.
But I’d say that is clearly a model.
You can see the paint job.

The last art they’ve done that way was a silhouette so could have gone either way

Lets hope. Actually lets hope all the imperial guard get plastics (with the exception of Cadia of course).

So just updating this one btw.

It's me or could be something quite large? the upper side of the spiral thing looks like it's where 2 piezes interlock and glue to get some stability.
That or some strong shade to mark a transition from the effect to something solid?
