gw rumor engineIt’s that time again! GW revealed a new rumor engine and if you’re a Skyrim/Oblivion fan you’ll know exactly what this looks like. Check it out.

Warhammer Community revealed another mystery bit. While we don’t know where this bit will end up exactly, it’s definitely no debate that we are looking at some kind of plant. Get a look for yourself.

GW Reveals A Nirnroot in Latest Rumor Engine!

nirnrootNyuuuuuum Nyooooooooooom!

It looks A LOT like Skyrim’s nirnroot. So let’s get into what could really be behind this bit. For starters, the fact that it’s a plant doesn’t really help us narrow anything down. This could easily be some kind of decorative basing material that’ll coincide with a new unit.

From bonsai trees to weeds blowing in the wind, it’s totally reasonable to think that this rumor engine bit could appear on a Realm-lords model.

We know we haven’t seen the entire faction line yet either…
