GW: Rumor Engine “Bracing For More”

Games Workshop has a new Rumor Engine and this one is well constructed.

This week’s Rumor Engine looks like it’s ready to keep itself together – but is it a terrain kit or part of something else?

“Ready for your weekly test of observation? See if you can work out this week’s Rumour Engine:”

What we’re looking at here is a classic knee brace of a Pergola type structure (note: edited for clarity). What’s really interesting to me is that this looks like it’s already been painted. And it’s very similar to another model we’ve seen VERY recently:

It’s the same type of wooden pergola corner brace with bolts keeping it together. Coincidence? Perhaps. Although the Lord of Blights has a very Nurgle bolt pattern and this one looks more like it was built by someone with less nefarious intentions. My money is on something for Age of Sigmar as it just doesn’t have the same vibe as a 40k model…then again, maybe that’s the point! Maybe it’s a section of wooden beams being eaten by Space Termites!

The lack of rot says otherwise…but we never can tell. So do you think this is part of a terrain kit of some sort or for a new unit in the game? What if it’s the Lord of Blights BEFORE he gets all converted to Nurgle – that would be interesting.


Alright internet, place your bets and tell us your best guesses!

      And squats.

      • Jonathon Runge

        Surly the Sisters of Battle also recruit from the Squats as well.

          I just pictured a short, stout, bearded woman in power armor. Thank you for that.:/

            I just pictured a short, stout, bearded woman as a Repentia. I’m going to go lie down…

          • wibbling

            And grumpy for being surly.

      • bobrunnicles

        Squatters of Battle?

  • Kabal1te

    My guess is a terrain kit. It’s too clean for much else. Though the way things are going it is probably somehow some kind of imperial something or other.

    • SacTownBrian

      Reminds me of the bretonian trebuchet.

  • Joyous_Oblivion

    No idea why they are doing wooden supports for the new plastic thunderhawk, but I’ll take it either way!!

    • Multigeneral

      It’s the Mosquito of 40K. XD

      • bobrunnicles

        My favorite plane of WWII – I’ll take three please 🙂

    • Kabal1te

      Well obviously the thunderhawk is secretly designed off the plans for the famous spruce goose of old terra.

  • Hagwert

    Looks like a gibbet….so my guess is something for Death .

  • Chris

    It’s a space marine.

    Hmm Gallows perhaps? Road sign?

    • euansmith

      A gallows is a road-sign. It is the international symbol for “Keep right on movin’, stranger; you ain’t welcome here.”

      • Matthew Pomeroy

        how about “please just hang around” 😀

  • Alexis Muscat

    Something related to Inquisition for 40k or AoS

  • eMtoN

    That is the wooden post which holds the noose that the memory of Vect swings from.

  • Lyca Atteneder

    It’s a fishing rod of course… for FISHMEN!!!

    But in all honesty i wouldn’t be surprised if it was some gallow related Undead Model. Or maybe something freegildish…

    Looks a little Middle Earth to me.
