GW: Rumor Engine “Curtain Call”

The Rumor Engine from Games Workshop is teasing a peek behind the curtain!

via Warhammer Community

We draw back the curtain on this week’s Rumour Engine to reveal – another curtain! Or a robe. Or some really ornate scrollwork. It could be anything really…

Yeah – it could be anything! But I haven’t seen drapes that dramatic since St. Celestine’s old model:

Maybe this is a tease at a new Sisters of Battle! And hey – it’s plastic, too!

But before we go all-in with the Sisters, let’s consider some of the other factions that are known to use flowing capes and robes.

The Stormcasts are known to rock a flowy cape or two. So do the Aelfs:

Chaos Warrior’s don’t shy away from that type of style either:


But that goes for both sides of the Warhammer coin:

And let’s not discount Robots and Robes:

It could even be a huge Knight Banner!

Come to think of it…I can’t really find an army other than Tyranids that doesn’t have some type of Cloth “thing” they wear. So clearly this is all a clever ruse and we’re getting a Caped Tyranid!

Yeah I got nothign on this one.


What about you Internet Detectives?! What do you think this bit is from?

  • Fraser1191

    A robe/length of cloth…
    Clearly new lizardmen!!!

  • SilentPony

    Its the Lion, clearly, riding a PLASTIC THUNDERHAWK CONFIRMED

    • Bakvrad

      Don’t forget the squat crew with plastic seraphim squads jumping out of it.

      • vlad78

        What? SQUAT CONFIRMED ?!!

  • orionburn III

    It does feel Dark Angel-ish, but not getting my hopes up that it actually is for the Lion. I can live without plastic sisters and/or Thunderhawks. Gimmie muh primarch at least!!!

    • BrianDavion

      could just be a dark angels primaris marine kit.

  • maverick40

    Could be a robe of a new primarch.

    • Marcet

      I was thinking Fulgrim’s loincloth 😉

      • euansmith

        Man, are we all always thinking about Fulgrim’s loincloth?

    • AEZ

      I’m going for primarch too.. it looks big

  • Kabal1te

    Isn’t there a bit that looks just like this in a space marine chapter master/captain kit that hangs from the belt? It is probably from the second wave of primaris models that is no doubt coming like the stormcast got their extremis and vanguard waves.

  • ZeeLobby

    Hmmm. How many people wear clothes made of cloth though…

  • Matt Sall

    It’s definitely Makari’s banner. Makari’s been resurrected from 2nd edition and he’s making a comeback! You can tell it’s his because of the grey.

    • Kabal1te

      Banner may not be a bad guess

    • I liked that poor little follow. 🙁

  • Chris Hateley

    It’s a space marine.

  • Dioscuri

    Dark Angels seem to love their cloaks and cloths (because apparently it can get chilly inside that Power Armour?). Maybe Lion El’Johnson? Or perhaps new Dark Angels primaris model.

  • Raptor987 123

    New Custodes Shield-Captain???

    There have been rumours of that.

    • BrianDavion

      rumors? didn;’t GW confirm it?

  • Algernon Bumbry

    clearly it’s a harlequin doom stage

  • BrianDavion

    could even be a new space marine captain.

  • Hagwert

    I’m taking a wild stab in the dark that it’s stormcast……. and if it is, that is exactly what GW is going to get from aelf fans !!!!!
