Looks ‘Shopped: GW Rumor Engine Emerges

rumor engine 4-7-2020Another rumor engine is here, and this time, it looks like some obvious editing has been done. Check out what could be missing from this teased bit.

May 5th, 2020

Mmm … Brains! Flesh Eater Courts GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine 5-5-2020Another rumor engine is here, and it might be some delicious Flesh Eater Courts as the new Games Workshop models previews circles back to an Age of Sigmar faction again. 

June 15th, 2021

Throne of Skulls: GW Rumor Engine

Rumor Engine (1)This one is honestly pretty vague because there are plenty of units holding human skulls in AoS. It must be a rough world out there, where the majority of your enemies just run around with your head after taking it off! Still, it looks to be a stone throne of some kind with a thin-ish hand. Meaning we can probably rule out some of the bigger factions. It has a very Flesh-eaters courts vibe, though.

New Chaos Hammer Time: GW Rumor Engine

At first glance, this seems to resemble a Sigmar/Stormcast hammer. However, the comet doesn’t look quite right and there’s definitely some chaos trim in there… Maybe this is a form of mockery?

October 19th, 2021

New GW Rumor Engine: It’s 40k Chaos Finally

rumor engine 10-19-21This claw is actually super easy to predict. Unless GW is pulling a fast one, these clearly belong to a new 40k Chaos model. From that Iconic trim to fingers that look very similar to Venomcrawler legs,  with a Helbrute style armor plate, it doesn’t seem likely to be anything else but a new Chaos Space Marine model.

October 26th, 2021

New Imperial Big Guns Never Tire: GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine 10-26-21This new weapon packed with rockets is actually another easy-to-place engine. There’s only a small handful or likely factions… The first and most likely is Imperial Guard / GSC as we had been hearing rumors of a new Imperial Guard tank coming soon that was scaled in between a Leman Russ and a Baneblade.

These are both popular factions so getting new toys is pretty standard for them (even though it doesn’t seem like they do). Second, there are Space Marines, because if this is a vehicle, it could just be wider imperium easy-peasy.

November 16th, 2021

New Necrons Initializing: GW 40k Rumor Engine

rumor engine 11-16-21Thanks to the very unique cube effect, this bit is very easy to place. It is almost certainly a Necron bit, either for 40k or maybe Kill Team. There’s also a slight chance it could be some repurposed gear that an inquisition agent got a hold of, but that’s always the case with Xenos gear bits!

March 15th, 2022

More New Death Korps of Krieg: GW Rumor Engine

The Rumor Engine – 15th March 2022

Ah, it’s that kind of tip. Is that a spear with a grenade tied to it? 

From the look of this, we have an explosive spear tip that appears to have some sort of power coupling attached to a shaft. While it could be anything still at this point, the only thing that comes to mind is the hunting lance for the Death Korps of Krieg Death Rider Squad.

However, as you can see for both the art and the existing Forge World models, they dont look quite like this…

April 12th, 2022

Lookout Duty: GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine 04-12-22Right out of the gate, the Armor style looks much more in line with AoS themes, meaning it’s probably for Age of Sigmar or a specialist game in the setting. Additionally, the Armor looks a little similar to Sigvald, meaning there may be a new armored model incoming!

April 19th, 2022

Now This Is Warhammer! New GW Rumor Engine

4-19 rumor engine

Right out of the gate, we might want to think this is AoS due to its primitive nature; however, there’s a checkerboard pattern on the right that’s nearly exclusive to 40k Orks!

This looks like a new Warhammer or some kind of counterweight…

May 10th, 2022

Lizards & Evil Robots: Another New GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine 05-10-22

This spear looks sweet, and there’s no questioning that it’s definitely for poking enemies. However, in an interesting twist, the two factions that come to mind couldn’t be further apart! The blade looks strangely Necron, while everything else looks mostly Seraphon…

So whose is it anyway?

May 24th, 2022

Book of Grudges-Thrower: Another New GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine 05-24-22Right out of the gates, GW introduced the new Engine by saying this:

Like all Votann, the Rumour Engine is stuffed full of secrets lost within its wizened digital architecture, with no way of knowing when they might surface… or why. Here’s yet another blessing from the Ancestor Core.

Which makes a guess for the bit much easier; it might just be another new Votann model!

Just like that shiny new Exo-Armor for the Squats that was recently revealed.

June 7th, 2022

Slaanesh Slashes Into Frame With a New GW Rumor Engine

rumoe engine 06-07-22

For first impressions, this new curved sword creams AoS and looks like two potential factions in particular. One is Mortal Slaanesh units with its leather gloves and curved sword, and the other is maybe a revamped Black Ark Corsair for the rumored Dark Aelves’ re-appearance with Malekith/Maleron.

June 14th, 2022

Welcome To The Jungle: New Catachan GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine 06-14-22This rumor engine doesn’t really scream any faction or another, but there are two factions that might be more likely to have these sorts of plants on them. These are notably Seraphon and Catachan.

With Imperial guard just getting a few new models revealed, that doesn’t seem too far off either! However, it could always be terrain or something as well.

June 21st, 2022

Poison Ork Gas: New GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine 06-21-22While this engine doesn’t scream anyone one faction or another, something about it looks like Orks. Of course, it could be a plethora of factions and races in both AoS and 40k…

June 28th, 2022

Malerion Rises With The Dark Elves: New GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine 06-28-22

This new big arm could belong to a variety of factions. We want to be optimistic about a sweet new Malerion model which has been rumored on and off since the introduction of AoS, but really this could be nearly anything. The only thing that’s clear is it’s a bigger model and probably isn’t so nice.

July 5th, 2022

Chaos Chains That Bind: New GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine 07-05-22This set of binds in the newest rumor engine looks interesting! Right away we know it won’t be any “nicer” factions given the spikey bits (haha get it). So we think it has a strong possibility of being part of a new Necromunda gang or possibly even something for chaos in another specialist game.

July 12th, 2022

Construct Additional Pylons: New GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine 07-12-2022This new bit looks a little strange and probably reminds most of us of Necrons. However the markings are not usual for Necrons, so we think this might be for Seraphons or maybe even Slaves to Darkness in AoS!

July 19th, 2022

Strike a Pose: New GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine 07-19-2022

This new bit looks strange at first, but if you think about perspective and aspect ratio, the mace may be further behind the hand, so it’s actually bigger than it looks! Perhaps a pose akin to the Obi-Wan battle pose?

July 19th, 2022

A Not So Chaos Polearm: New GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine 07-26-22

Last week there were hints about something new and chaos-themed for the rumor engine, but this is noticeably not so.

The time has almost come, the Rumour Engine is swirling with more energy than ever before, and we’re only a few moments away from whatever grand design it has in store. Before the Dark Powers usher us into a new and brighter future, we have just one more vision of a forthcoming release to prepare us for the greatness that awaits.

Isn’t it wonderful? The warp has this and more to share – so the Engine tells us – if only we embrace it. We don’t see any downside to this, so let us know what you think this week’s Rumour Engine image is on the Warhammer, Warhammer 40,000, and Warhammer Age of Sigmar Facebook pages while we get everything ready for next week’s grand ascension. 

So, while they often write these like this, this is the first time they really mention any finality. They said this week will be the grand ascension and that only one more vision is left. To us, this feels like their way of telling us next week will be a big reveal and a change in how they reveal rumors.

Skeletons Adorn Flames & Fur: Rumor Engine

Rumor Engine 08-02-2022

When you first look at this, it almost looks like a skely on the back of some kind of beast, but if you flip the picture, it starts to look a lot like flames.

August 9th, 2022

Seraphon Power Up in New GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine 08-09-22

Immediately after looking at this new rumor engine, there seem only to be two possibilities… Necrons and Seraphon, but given the nature of the markings on the ring, we are definitely leaning way more towards this being something for our favorite Lizardmen.

August 16th, 2022

Seraphon Get New Bling in GW Rumor Engine

Rumor Engine

Honestly, this could be for a ton of stuff if we’re being honest, as tons of models have little dangly jewelry. Especially GW even said this is an extreme close-up. However, with last week’s rumor being pretty clear for Seraphon (or Necrons), maybe they are doubling up and grabbing two in a row.

August 23rd, 2022

Sea Vegetation in New GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine 08-23-22

After looking at this new rumor engine, there are many possibilities… There is simply nothing very exclusive about plants. It could easily be 40k of Aos and even Terrain or a Character. Our only guess is that the Vegetation does look slightly oceanic, making us lean toward a potential Idoneth Deepkin release.

August 30th, 2022

The Riddler Invades Warhammer: New GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine 08-30-22

Without immediately recognizing this engine as an iconic “?” not so different from the riddler, we think this does look like a good tool for some Destruction factions.

The most likely candidates are, of course, Ogor Mawtribes or maybe even Gloomspite Gitz. Mainly because of the tools and craftsmanship they have on their models already.

September 6th, 2022

Cherry Blossoms & Poxes: New GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine 09-06-2022This Rumor engine scratches our brainstorming and theory-crafting itch! While it doesn’t like a potential tree with poxes for something Nurgle, Warhammer Total War 2 recently got a resurgence thanks to Immortal Empires breathing life back into the game…

That’s Important because the high-Asia-inspired Cathay is a major faction there!

Rumor Engine Roundup: Last Batch of Bits Debunked

solved-rumor-enginesEach of these rumor engines would have been fully debunked (showing the full model). Luckily for all of us, an interesting bit was finally solved!

March 8th, 2022

Another New Baby Carrier Model: GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine 03-08-22

This little guy is clearly wrapped up in something else’s hair, but what is it? Games Workshop called it a “blighter” in the engine post, but besides being informal British, it seems like their words rarely mean anything to help uncover what these images ever are.

Perhaps it could be a new character model with its own little science experiment. That’s the main possibility leading us to give a Cursed City expansion a possibility. We can also tell it doesn’t really look like any other “small” models we’ve seen before…

sons of Behemat new models 2

We can’t see it from this angle but that little guy is on this giant’s back! You can see some of his buddies elsewhere on the model too.

April 5th, 2022

A Baby Looking For Its Carrier: GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine 04-05-22

Right out the gate, this looks like the exact same creature as another rumor engine a while back, which we also included below… This makes us believe it really is a new creature we haven’t seen before, probably coming in the form of a specialist game or even a cursed city expansion.

sons of Behemat new models 2

We were right about this being the same as the only little guy, but not about the placement on this new Giant!

May 17th, 2022

Robots For the Squats

rumor engine 05-17-22

Initially, this might seem pretty difficult to place since there’s nothing that stands out for one faction or another, but luckily we have some help. GW had this to say:

The Rumour Engine is back to normal, having accepted our offering of a shiny new Warhammer Underworlds: Nethermaze set to apologise for implying that the Warhammer Fest reveals were better* than its own images. 

While this doesn’t explicitly say that this is definitely a Nethermaze rumor engine, it sure does seem like it. And if that’s the case, there’s only one faction advanced enough to use full advantage of the robot-like tech, and small enough to match those hands…

Iron Master

Our joke guess was right! This was before the Squats made there return but we still saw a hint of them! The bit is on the robots holding their weapons.

June 29th, 2021

Tools For Every Occasion: New GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine 6-29-2021

At first glance, this looks like a utility belt with some wiring and even what looks like a wrench on the left edge and perhaps another set of tools on the right. However, the Steel beam on the bottom throws a small wrench in that plan; why is it there?

Iron Master

This one was a tough nut to crack, but we think we came close! It’s the Ironkin’s belt on the far left.

July 6th, 2021

Screaming Eagles: New GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine 7-6-2021

The big question comes down to could this be 40k and what would it even be used on? It seems much more likely to be AoS, but it technically could be 40k. If anything its probably either on the backpack of a space marine or perhaps on a chariot/staff in AoS


We were almost right, it was sorta a backpack, but not for Space Marines!

July 27th, 2021

A New Imperium Vehicle: GW Rumor Engine

Looking at this rumor engine, it looks pretty easy to place. Most likely, this is an Imperium vehicle, perhaps even Astra Militarum. The piping and hatches strongly suggest 40k; however, technically, Kharadron Overlord could also have this bit as a part of one of their airships. 

Sagitaur ATV 2

We got pretty close on this one too!

August 10th, 2021

Rocky Road: New GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine august 8 2021

Looking at this rumor engine, it’s hard to say with any certainty what this is for or even perhaps what system it may release as a part of.

One thing is for sure, though with no bands of energy around the stones, it looks to be of a non-mystic nature for sure.


The new Votann model is using these as stepping stones! But alas, we couldn’t guess that…

August 24th, 2021

More New Orks On The Way? GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine 8-24-2021

This clearly looks like an Ork chest with some neck/chest tribal garb right out of the gate. There are plenty of Snakebite Orks that  Games Workshop could preview new models for that could still use an update. Sure there is also alot of potential Ork models in AoS that could use a refresh, such as the very outdated Savage Ork lineup.

warhammer underworlds warband

No Orks to be seen, but still a great new model on the way!

August 31st, 2021

Burnin’ Rubber & Flingin’ Mud: GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine 08-31-21

At first glance, this is clearly a tire and suspension. The next question becomes, “What faction is this for?”, but some factions clearly are more likely than others. The easiest answer is Genestealer Cult, as they already have a lineup of off-roading vehicles like the unit of Jackals. However, this could also be some new Space Marine vehicle and of course even Astra Militarum…

votann rumor engine vehicle

We missed this one, but who could have thought the Leagues of Votann would go so heavily into a Mars-rover-style vehicle design?

May 11th, 2021

The Huntsmans Trophy: GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine 05-11-21

The rumor engine this week seems to be a newly acquired trophy resembling a lion’s head. This could be a White lion or perhaps even a young Manticore. Either way, it could be 40k or AoS, with only a slight edge to AoS thanks to the old White lion kits.

Who knew a new Ogor was coming? Certainly not us!

July 13th, 2021

Dressed For The Gods: New GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine 7-13-2021While this is a little difficult to make out, it does have some Lizardmen/Seraphon vibes. Being either a headdress or even top of a throne/harness for riding an animal seems like they aren’t too far off of possibility. If that is true and just by looking at this, this does seem to pretty much be guaranteed for AoS at the very least.

warhammer underworlds warbandThis one looks to be Dromm himself!

March 17th, 2020

Chaos Bonereapers? GW Rumor Engine Spotted

rumor engine 03-17-2020

Could we be looking at some Chaos Ossiarch Bonereapers? Check out this new bit that might be on the way for Age of Sigmar next.

This wasn’t even close to Bonereapers, but instead, we got a new chaos Sorceress! We were wrong but it’s a welcome suprise!

May 12th, 2020

Wow, GW Made a Bone Flute: New Rumor Engine

rumor engine 5-12-2020

Write this date down because it looks like GW revealed a bone flute in this rumor engine pic! Is this more proof of new Death models?

Two wrong guesses in a row? Not death, but Chaos causes death, right? haha… Anyways, new familiars are a huge surprise but the old models are extremely outdated!

August 17th, 2021

New Space Marine Scouts? New GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine 8-17-2021

This engine really has two clear possibilities. First, it could be some melee weapon overhead, or second, it could be upsidedown and actually be a heavy weapon (like the pose below)!

Either of these could be for Aos or 40k, but that’s definitely a human hand.

votann rumoe engine solve

No scouts, instead this is a  brand new Squat to add to the new lineup! DOPE!

May 31st, 2022

Squats Hammering Away With Another New GW Rumor Engine

rumor engine 05-31-22

Right away this new hammer is very clearly 40k and resembles other Thunder Hammer-like weapons. However, upon closer inspection, it has a ton of similarities to an old Forge World model that may give us a hint of what is coming soon in plastic for Leagues of Votann!

votann rumor engine solve 2

Finally, a correct guess! This was a perfect spot-on guess! Woohoo!
