GW: Rumor Engine “Whip It Out”

Games Workshop has just dropped a new teaser – this one will whip you into a frenzy!

via Warhammer Community

“Time once more for another wild Wednesday rumour. What are we looking at folks?”


Hmm. Who’s got whip-like segmented…TAILS.

The segments fit, the “spikey tail-ring” is pretty obvious…It’s gotta be Skaven, right? So…wait, that means we’re getting a new Skaven “something” right? So now I suppose the question is…What the heck could it be? Did GW just drop a clue that Skaven are coming soon?! I guess that means we should all stock up on rat traps. Or maybe it’s a Lord of Change who’s tail feathers got plucked…


What do you think of this new rumor engine from GW? What Skaven-esq model do you hope it is?

  • Manuel Bateman

    gonna be a bloodbowl starplayer or something like that

    • generalchaos34

      in the last white dwarf they did mention a star Rat Ogre who had 2 heads and 4 arms that got into an argument with itself it choked itself to death

    • Cristhian Mario Landa Rivera

      Not counting on that, there seems to be a bit of scenery in the base.

      • OldHat

        That is a big assumption. Could very well be an armored thigh guard for a BB player.

  • Severius_Tolluck

    Shame rat ogre was resin and not plastic. Wonder what this is then. New models for a battletome?

  • WhenDidVicesBecomeVirtues

    Given the past AoS releases, skaven with jet packs and lasers… on their heads.

    • wibbling

      That would be too cool.

      • Loki Nahat

        found the 4 years old

    • zeno666

      Probably yes..*shesh*
      Just so they will be compatible with AoS 40k

    • dave long island

      Frickin’ lasers on their heads… specifically…

    • benvoliothefirst

      *frickin’ laser-beams
      *frickin’ heads

  • silashand

    Probably either Hakflem Skuttlespike or Headsplitter star player for Blood Bowl. JMO though…

  • Chris Hateley

    It’s a space marine.

    • isn’t it always a space marine ??

  • Ryan C

    Might be a bit on the wild side but with Skaven joining Chaos for AoS AND a big Nurgle release rumoured to be on the horizon it wouldn’t be a huge leap to consider that Clan Pestilens will have become part of Nurgle and be part of that release. Perhaps fulfilling a similar thematic role in a Nurgle battletome that the Tzaangor were created to fill in the Tzeentch one.

  • Ravingbantha

    Plastic Thunderhawk

    • rtheom

      That’s definitely just one of the cabling bundles leading to the sponson bolters.

  • Simon

    Second Skaven faction? Orcs have two faction books out now.

    • GingerPowered

      Dwarves and (technically) Stormcast do as well

  • EnTyme

    I’ve heard rumor of a Clan Skryre update, so this would seem to fit with that.

  • Keith Wilson

    space skaven

    • dave long island


  • Rafał Pytlak

    For a second i was hoping a new Lucious…

  • Hagwert

    Sisters Of Battle……… sorry, sorry….I’ll get my coat !

    • rtheom

      The secret St. Celestine has been hiding all along… a tail…

      • Brutus Motor

        A she-tail!

  • piglette


  • Talos2

    There was talk of nurgle having a big year so plague monks getting an update?
