GW: Rumor Engine “The Maw of Madness”

This new Rumor Engine from Games Workshop wants to take a BITE out of your sanity!

via Warhammer Community

Looks like the Rumour Engine is hungry – any ideas on what this might be?

This one looks quite “painterly” – it might not be a model or bit – then again, maybe GW took a bit a tossed it through some photo-editing software to make it look painterly…

Sharp teeth that look like the stuff of nightmares could most certainly fit in in 40k or AoS. That could be some foul horror from beyond the warp or it could also be a snarling squig:

Is this a sign from Gork (or is it Mork)? Is it a warning from the warp? I’m not sure but I do know staring into that maw will eventually drive you quite mad…or it’s a Jackal. Always guess Jackal…


Well Internet Detective Agency – we’ve got another case for you! What do you think this one is? Let us know in the comments below!

  • Swimpackus

    Great unclean one art no doubt.

    • Darkcat

      You are wrong… Its a new primaris miniature…

      • Angel Grinder

        Primaris Dentarium?

    • Angel Grinder

      yep got to be with Nurgle Death Guard on the horizon – expecting a Glotkin kit with an extra sprue in the same way the Bloodthirster upgraded

      • Boondox

        A 40K Glotkin would be pure awesome! I’ve been thinking about a conversion like that for ages. And I don’t even like Death Guard or Nurgle. The model is just so kickass!!

    It seems like we get these ‘clues and teases’ regularly but I don’t remember seeing a post about what the mini is once it’s revealed. I guess I’m just missing the big reveal. Total jip.

      Only one I’ve recognized lately was the rumor with the somewhat decapitated marine. Think the majority thought it would be the base for Morty and turned out to be the Primaris Apothecary.

    • georgelabour

      There were the teasers leading up to the release of Cypher, and then the Kharadrons. They just mixed the teases in amidst each other, and with some stormcast teases, to keep everyone guessing.

      But eventually folks did figure it out.

      • dave long island

        Hmmmm… I guess so. IDK. I’ve fallen through the ‘clues and teasers’ safety net, and ended up living on the streets, eating food thrown into garbage bins and ranting about the federal reserve fraud to passersby… lol

      Dakkadakka has a post dedicated to GW rumors. You can see all the solved and unsolved images here:

        Oh okay. Hey thanks!

  • Darkcat

    The picture is GW eating our wallet….

  • orionburn

    Think the last time they did an artwork type rumor was one that ended up being the cover artwork from the Xenos index. While I want this to be something for my Nids I’m thinking it’s Death Guard related. Seems a little late to do a rumor when their dex is dropping soon.

    • Dooms Day

      Well its not the cover artwork for deathguard. Im guessing either tryanid or orks cover artwork

  • Emperorofsarcasm

    Plastic Sisters attack dog.

    • Graham Bartram

      A joint kit that can also be built as an Arbite’s Cyber Mastiff as well…. ..probably.

  • WhenDidVicesBecomeVirtues

    I just think squig when I see this.

  • Dan Wilson

    Death Guard related. Likely beast of nurgle.

    • Andrew B

      Maybe related to those caterpillar legs that we saw back in April.

  • benn grimm

    Daemon or Squig, I’ll be happy either way 🙂

  • Tshiva keln

    Extreme close up of girlymans lice.

  • thereturnofsuppuppers

    maybe the stomach of the new great unclean one based off the glotkin sprue

  • Coltcabunny

    Well, that thing has more teeth than the Osmond family. That’s not good.

  • Fraser1191

    See it’s not just space marine stuff!

  • Chris Elie


  • piglette

    New Krootox

  • Chris Hateley

    It’s a space marine.

    • euansmith

      Primaris Space Wolf Dentator Marines.

  • Squats!

  • Brutus Motor


  • Kiskatona

    Looks like dinosaur teeth to me. Exodites confirmed……;)
