GW: Rumor Engine “Potions-R-Us”

Games Workshop has pulled out a new Rumor Engine and this one has the cure for what ails you!

We’ve got potions, potions, POTIONS! Maybe GW is branching out in to games like Snake Oil or Potion Party? Nah…this one is definitely miniatures related.

With Necromunda coming soon and the new General’s Handbook right around the corner, who knows what might be next for the worlds of Warhammer? The Rumour Engine does – here’s the latest:

Well now, we’ve got painted bits that have been de-satirized. Not only am I curious as to what is in those pots, but also what faction they are for. Like they said, Necromunda is coming – could these be for new Ratskin Renegade Shamans? Or perhaps some new faction for Age of Sigmar? Maybe the Greenskins are experimenting with the alchemical side of things…I get a very “Weirdnob Shaman” vibe from these – I think it’s because of the extra cloth used to tie the potions on whatever stick they are on.

The jars, however, are throwing me off. I’m getting a “nature vibe” from those aesthetics. Not so much from the jars as much as the straps that are holding them up. Perhaps Aelf-ish in design?


What do you think internet detectives? Let us know your theories in the comments below!

  • BaronVonYoloing

    My guess would be the slowly gestating elves. They look slightly wood-elvish to me anyways.

  • Chris Koster

    Aos Nurgle unit. possibly a new festus.

    • Commissar Molotov

      Agreed, looks like Festus’ gear.

  • SilentPony

    Clearly holy water from the banner of a Sister of Battle. Plastic Thunderhawk confirmed!

        I’ll allow it…

      • SilentPony

        …yeah, fair enough…

      • Michael Garrett

        fire points? access points? options? armor values? oh wait……..

    • Spacefrisian

      I wonder if we get plastic battle Sisters before half life 3 is released, although seeing the reactions of half life 3 fans when Dota tcg was revealed we might see that game before plastic battle Sisters.

      • Michael Garrett

        plastic sister of battle riding plastic thuderhawk in halflife 3 confirmed

  • Severius_Tolluck

    Could be any mage for AoS, but… and here is a possibility, it could be for the upcoming Talisman remake… if that isn’t being third partied again that is… Or even a shadespire, but yes.. probably a mage of some sort for AoS.. or even something silly for bloodbowl…(I always default to BB, my first true love of GW)

  • AircoolUK

    Those look like maracas, so I guess we’re getting either a 40K or AoS Bez.

    • euansmith

      That’s stinky thinkin’, you playground superstar, do it better!

    • Michael Garrett

      Samba Samba video game featuring nightlords comfirmed

  • Chris Hateley

    It’s a space marine.

  • EnTyme

    Pandaren faction confirmed!

    • Maitre Lord Ironfist

      my first thought too :,D

  • David Mayfield

    C’mon Kroot Mercs!

  • Talos2

    Well there looks like slime or something is dripping so something nurgle is a good bet. I wondered if maybe Fabius bile but it looks too low tech for a marine

    • Spacefrisian

      In the distant future of the 41st millennium they use the high tech abacus…

      • Talos2

        Lol true.

  • piglette

    Hobbit breakfast syrup bottles.

  • banana raccoon
  • Michael Garrett

    they look like the little bags you bring goldfish home in. Fishmen confirmed.
