GW: Rumor Engine “All Systems Go”

Games Workshop’s latest Rumor Engine is firing on all cylinders – now we just need to figure out what the heck it is!

The Ad Mech are up to something – what that is? That is anyone’s guess…

On this week’s Rumour Engine, we’ve got something that looks notably mechanical – maybe it’s the Rumour Engine itself?


So this one is pretty clearly for 40k – I think we can all agree on that one. It’s probably either Ad Mech or something related to a Forge World. That’s evident from the symbol:

Now the question is what the heck is it from? Could this be a part of a new Flyer Kit/Transport that Ad Mech players have been wish-listing for? Maybe – but they already got a Codex so that feel unlikely. What about a new Terrain bit? It fits with the new stuff coming out:

It’s an even closer fit for the new Plasma-inspired Terrain:

The Plasma-coils are a big clue:

At the same time, it’s bugging me that the Skull in the middle is just a regular Skull and not the Half-robotic/Half-Human skull. You know what faction uses that icon? Imperial Knights.

Interesting, no?


Well Internet Detectives the ball is in your court! What do you think it is? Let us know in the comments below!

      That’s what I’m hoping. Especially if Deathwatch can take it… why we can take primaris Apothecaries, but not regular ones, is beyond me.

  • I_am_Alpharius

    Well evidently, 100%, 40K based with a Imperial theme. My guesses would be: more scenery, New Ad-Mech unit, upgrade sprue for the Knight kit or possible part of a Primarch new armour ala Girlyman.

    • Fraser1191

      I’m saying it’s a vehicle of some sort. I have nothing to base it on but there’s nothing to disprove it either lol

    • WhenDidVicesBecomeVirtues

      That is what I also thought at first but then I was thinking to myself that they have so much admech themed terrain, would they really make another kit with it?

    God, I’m 1 hour late and no one has pointed out its obviously the interior details of the PLASTIC THUNDERHAWK CONFIRMED!

    Come on guys! Get your head in the game!

    Something Something ugly primaris based.

  • Fraser1191

    One thing to notice is that there’s a reasonable reason the skull isn’t split. It’s too small. Look on skitarii infantry, no spilt. So it’s small and on Ad-mech. That’s all we know lol

    “Looking for Freedom”

    It looks like it is for the knights, and it may be part of a K.I.T.T. (Kit of a transporter). It even looks alittle like a wheel. I am 100% sure it is a Knightrider, talking with his car while driving over the enemy army.

  • BigNorthMxO

    Doesn’t the Landraider kit also have a skill a lot like this one on the back and/or inside?

  • eMtoN

    It’s a shield for a plastic sisters knight.
