Games Workshop has a new rumor engine teaser and this one all chained-up!
It’s that time of week again and Games Workshop did not disappoint. Check out this week’s rumor engine:
The Rumour Engine continues to turn out new mysteries – on your marks… get set… wildly speculate!
Interesting! Obviously we have a model holding a chain – but the question is what is the chain attached to? Also, who’s holding this chain!?
My first inclination is that maybe this was a Ganger from Necromunda. Chains are a pretty good “to-go” in a street fight after-all! Perhaps this model is related to that. But on closer inspection, you can see that this model is using this chain to steer something – or hold on to it. How can you tell? Because it’s got a handle.
Now, this is actually a fairly common motif for GW. Lots of models use chains to control whatever Warbeast they are attempting to ride/hang-on to. But Khorne units have a particular attachment to chains:
I would point on in both these cases, it appears as if the “rider” might be using the chain to simply “hang-on” vs “steer” – no, I think the Rumor Engine model is attempting to actually guide whatever it’s riding. Why? Because if it was simply trying to hang on, then one length of chain and not two.
So what faction would use a chain to hang on to a beast and try to ride it? What faction is rumored to be getting an update for next year? What model line needs to get some new models in general? Those are the questions that need answers folks!
It’s just a guess…
Alright Internet Detective Agency – I’ll leave the case up to you! What model/faction do you think is holding this “chain gang” in checK? Who’s it going to be?!
