GW: Rumor Engine “Horn of the Mountain”

Games Workshop’s latest teaser has us wondering what part of the beast we’re looking at…

I’m not sure what is going on with this one folks – so here goes:

Riding into view like an ancient hero atop some kind of flying machine, the Rumour Engine is here, with a particularly cryptic instalment. What could it possibly be?

Whelp…we just don’t know what is going on here. Is that a tail? A Rock? Why does it have “scales” if it’s a rock? Also are those vines coming out of it? Perhaps roots? What if it’s not a plant and it’s some type of weird appendage? And how about the “horn” on top. It’s obviously tied to this “rock” and it appears to have a ring through it. I’m just not sure…

As far as which system this is for – again, it’s really REALLY vague. It could be some weird alien thing for 40k or it could just as easily fit in the AoS universe. Heck, let’s not get into the “side” games like Shadespire, Blood Bowl or the up coming Necromunda…


I leave this one to you Internet Dective Agency – what do you think it is?

  • ZeeLobby

    The way the horn is hanging it looks like it’s rotated 90 degrees.

  • Looks a little like a Pineapple…

    • Jabberwokk

      Under the sea or combined with an apple pen?

  • Talos2

    Whatever it is it will be a really small inconsequential detail as always

  • I_am_Alpharius

    I no expert but a, very, basic recolour gives this finish. I would place my money on something AoS. Perhaps some more flora type scenery like the 40k Alien plant life sets?

    • J Mad

      I think its AoS for sure, most likely Skaven or the Syltenth? I can’t spell their name.

      Its most likely in a dynamic pose and that is the base.

  • fenrisful2

    Could that “horn” be a tusk from a squiggoth?

  • Matt Halkos

    The bottom part looks to me like some piece of tyranid terrain with the part people are saying is a horn looking more like a tail, perhaps having just leapt from the spore?

  • Talos2

    What’s an “internet dective”?

  • MMO Builder

    Shadespire scenery

  • EnTyme

    It looks to be chained to a piece of scenery. The “scales” match those on the Ophidian Archway.

  • zeno666

    I think its dragon poop

  • Chris Hateley

    It’s a space marine.

    • Pl4gu3 B4st4rd

      Looks more like a space marine imho

  • SilentPony

    Looks like parts for a Custodian PLASTIC THUNDERHAWK!

  • Tore Hansen

    Perhaps we’re finally getting some love for the Aelfs in AoS. Though knowing how often GW loves to disappoint us I’m not keeping my hopes up.

    • zeno666

      Hey now. You got a large beetle with a transgender person on top.

  • Shenordak

    Shadow elf lord on dragon. This is part of the base. The creature behind the rock matches the dragonling familiar we saw earlier

  • Vepr

    Inuit fertility charm.

  • mafiacheese

    Every time I see one of these rumor image things, this is what I think of:
