More New Chaos Spotted: Possessed or Mutilator?

GW is back again with another Chaos rumor engine. It looks like there is something very Daemonic on the way for Chaos Marines soon!

If you didn’t catch the first rumor engine from earlier, Warhammer Community announced that they would be doing a two-part rumor engine teaser showcasing some kind of new model that has definitely felt the taint of Chaos.

With that said, let’s check out the first rumor engine to bring you up to speed as well as the latest one right after!

Daemon Possessed Backpack?

Games Workshop was nice enough to give us a picture of a bit and there’s no doubt that a Daemon is inside whatever it is. At first glance, we thought it could be the backpack of some kind of new model/character like maybe a Possessed.

Speaking of Possessed, we know it looks like they’ve got some updated artwork on the cover of Shadowspear. Maybe this is the backpack to a newly sculpted Daemon-possessed Marine?


This Thousand Sons pack has the same layered plates as the snapshot GW gave us! The only difference is that there’s not a Warp-born face staring back at you! But speaking of Possessed Marines…

This rumor engine from a while ago looks to have finally been matched up to that Possessed artwork! However, we haven’t seen the official model that it goes to as of yet. But it turns out it looks to be the business end of a Chaos unit.

GW Rumor Engine Part II: A Paw Unbound

Looking at the latest rumor engine from Warhammer Community, this is without a doubt the underside of some kind of Space Marine’s foot. It’s clear as day that we can see the angled sloping ceramite that all Marines have around the bottom of their legs as well as the Chaosy trim. Whatever the model may be, it looks like it’s been surging with Warp taint for a while as it’s grown claws out of the ends of its toes!

Could this be some kind of twisted Marine that got one too many “gifts” from the Chaos gods?

Maybe this Master of Possession is bringing a new unit with him!

Possessed, or New Multi Kit Obliterators / Mutilators?

What do you think these two rumor engines could be hinting at? Is Chaos about to get even more support in the days ahead? Will the Black Legion take control of Vigilus with all their new toys?  Let us know what you think in the comments of our Facebook Hobby Group.
