Games Workshop has another teaser from the Rumor Engine. It’s a dangerous mystery…

Let’s see what the Rumour Engine has churned out for us today…

What in the name of Sigmar and/or the Emperor could it be?

 

 

Now, a couple of things:

  • OK, so my first impression is a a hook halberd with a glowy center.
  • On a purely “vibe” point of view I would say this Age of Sigmar and not the Grimdark – but just maybe Ad Mech?
  • My bet is on Age of Sigmar Dwarfs

Internet Detectives – what are your theories on this one?

  • Andersp90 .

    Ahab’s harpoon, clearly..

    – the white scars are boned.

  • Talos2

    Bit elegant for dwarfs I’d have thought. Crystal instead of rune?

  • Jukka Vuorisalo

    might be something from “aelf” line or some new daemons again, shaft seems to be… square?

    • Hedwerx

      Looks like a reeded cylinder to me.

      • Muninwing

        i’d go with somethign related to the lizardmen in their new role as incarnations of the history channel’s programming…

        magic lizards in flying space pyramids, and all…

  • SilentPony

    It’s just a thing. No need to get excited.

  • Severius_Tolluck

    Based on how long this takes to go from concept teaser to release the cat is usually out of the bag near release time. I will think it ties in to all the Tzeentch stuff popping out, mainly AoS. Maybe should double check what those Tzanngors are carrying on those discs.

  • Manu De Pouget

    Can’t it be a part of the (hope, hope, hope) new multi plastic kit great demon of Tzeentch ?

  • Hedwerx

    There’s a spear works down the chip shop swears he’s elvish.

    Reminds me more of a Katakama Yari than a Halberd tbh.

    • euansmith

      But he’s a liar, and I’m not sure about you. 😉

    • Severius_Tolluck

      or the what you call it bul hook from ancient china?

      • Hedwerx

        Gou Lian Qiang? Sort of a spear with a sickle blade on the side.

  • grenstauf

    Tallarn lances…… I hope.

  • Horus84cmd

    Sneaky elvish weapon me thinks

  • Christopher A. Herrera

    New Slaanesh “wargear”

  • Xodis

    Im hoping an Aelf design, I know they could use some love, kind of think it will be part of the Tzaangors AoS kit though.

    • Aezeal

      Tzaangor stuff so far is less edgy right? more rounded corners etc?

      • Xodis

        Eh not really IMO, I think this Glaive would work well with them. Hopefully its the Glaive of a brand new White Lion Aelf either fighting with or on top of some giant white Sabertooth tiger/lion looking thing…..but who knows lol

        • Aezeal

          Just google Tzaangor.. and you’ll only see very curvy moonlike weapons, nothing similar to this.

          • Xodis

            Fyreslayers have a very specific Axe look as well, until you look at their other weapons which are completely different from their normal look. All in all, we know AoS Tzaangors are coming, so its not out of the realm of possibilities (pun intended) for it to be a new, possibly unique weapon for them.

          • Aezeal

            True.. but I just don’t think that is it :D. We’ll know in a few weeks 😀

  • Jonathan Ellsworth

    Probably Ogor

  • SupPupPup

    sisters of silence hook halberd?

  • EnTyme

    The hooked bit looks a lot like the weapons used by the Tenebael Shard from Silver Tower. Dark Aelves?

  • BLACK ARK CORSAIRS!!!!!! 😱

  • benn grimm

    I’m going to go out on a limb and say spear…

    • Hedwerx

      Well whatever it is, it’s definitely not a halberd…
      (edit) or if it’s supposed to be one, it’s sculpted by someone who doesn’t know what a halberd looks like. (edit)

  • Emperor’s Champion

    enlightened?

  • Hendrik Booraem VI

    Exodite halberd!

  • euansmith

    Spiky McHookstick?

  • BigD

    Its a harpoon for the new Duardin. They are skyborne… zepplins, balloon jump packs… 100% Zepplin troop carrier, New long range rifle heavy armoured dudes..

    • BeneathALeadMountain

      Awesome, not really a fan of most of AoS but I’d love to see this, I hope I like the sculpts.

  • Martin McGinley

    Given that it’s a polearm with a hook no less, I’d have to say that Duardin is a good guess. Halberds, especially those with hooks, were designed to dismount cavalry. A perfect weapon then, for someone short of stature.

    The material is also seemingly all forms of metal, and it has a very no-nonsense shape, which further reinforces a Duardin weapon to me, as Aelf’s would likely be more stylized (and with a wooden pole), and Tzneetch would have some trace of mutation or Daemon possession, which I just don’t see with this.

  • onlyonepinman

    A Halberd? My guess would be new Aelfs or Humans.

  • Why, that’s an Exodite weapon, of course! =D
    The look of the halberd makes it look quite Fantasy, but the glowing thing in the middle screams Eldar.

  • ☕ Rich Brimson ☕

    Eldar Exodites!!!!!
