GW: Rumor Engine “Bubble Wrap”

Games Workshop has moved their Rumor Engine to Tuesdays and the new one is ready to POP!

via Warhammer Community

Try as we might, we can’t tell what this latest Rumour Engine could be:

I think this one puts a whole new meaning on the term bubble wrap! It kind of reminds me of something Tyranid-like only because it looks like it’s organic. Like some type of organic transport:

I don’t actually think it’s an actual Tyranid but the theme could be similar. Whatever it is, I don’t think it’s mechanical. It could be some type of rock formation however – what if it’s some new type of Rock-based life form? That would be a pretty cool new (or old) race. It’s a weird one, I’ll give it that.


I’m stumped! What do you think it could be internet detectives?!

  • Red_Five_Standing_By

    Could be Nurgle or Tyranids. Maybe even Skaven.

  • Balor

    Spider eggs?

    • DoctorBored

      Oh yeah!! That’s a good guess, it could be Goblin related!

  • DoctorBored

    Considering how many little pieces they showed us leading up to Blightwar, this could really be anything. It looks organic, so that does narrow it down to a few factions. Nurgle, Tyranids, Skaven, or even the Dryads. It reminds me a little bit of barnacles and other underwater things, or it could be something Lizardman related, though I doubt it.

    It looks like a hive of sorts to me, like.. the type parasites make on hosts and burst out.

    • Tshiva keln

      Plus the “try as we might” comment could be a hint at a mite.

    • dave long island

      Thanks for giving me nightmares for the next 2 weeks… lol

    • Shadowstrife

      I was promised a HD bluray release of this by the studio. I am still waiting on my high quality Ninja Scroll, dammit…

    • Socrates Kentaro Matsuura

      yeah i thought of this guy from ninja scroll too!

  • I_am_Alpharius

    This is a peculiar one…could be any of the suggest people have already made. I’m pondering if it could be related to some kind of scenery or basing kit?

  • zeno666

    I think those are the plot holes from Dark Imperium 😉

    • Muninwing

      only if a space marine is the height of each hole in comparison…

    • Severius_Tolluck

      Zing, good night everybody, try the Quiche, it’s to die for!

    • benn grimm

      Good call, they are a bit small for that though…

  • Its nurgle-related. And that could either be new beast of nurgle forthcoming or maybe even the rumored GUO.

  • Christie Bryden

    I wonder, could it be barnicles! from a undead ghost ship! would love it if it were.

  • dave long island

    Whatever it is, it’s gross…

  • miniwar monger

    GWs teaser suck. They say as good as nothing.

    They should make stuff more puzzlelike. It would be so much better if this whole thing lead somewhere instead of just causing random guessing.

    Is it really that hard to do something actually good ?

    • I_am_Alpharius

      The teasers seems to be working then….by getting people to have discussion about what it could be…and by extension thinking about GW and their products. Advertising 101.

      • miniwar monger

        Its actually the first and last time ever I commented on one of them. There is a lot of potential left.

        Then there is sometimes a huge gap between the teaser and the actual release or them showing the model. They could build tension and make it interesting. But yeah, why being great when being mediocre is easy.

        Worked great for White Dwarf eh ?

  • Chris Hateley

    It’s a space marine.

  • pokemastercube .

    given they had that thing about other xeno forces i will put it out there: hrud

  • EnTyme

    Whatever it is, it’s triggering my trypophobia.

  • Socrates Kentaro Matsuura

    plague hive for nurgle!
