It’s 2018 – who knows what the year ahead might hold? The Rumour Engine does – here’s your first cryptic clue of the year:

Well now – that’s very curious! The first thing that springs to my mind is something on fire. It’s not like setting things on fire is a theme or anything in 40k or AoS either…

It could also be a rock formation. Or a Tree of some type. Maybe it’s a Flaming Tree! You know, maybe it’s a different type of fire altogether:

Oh who am I kidding – It’s gotta be the return of the Salamander’s Primarch Vulkan!

I hear he likes fire!

Okay Internet, I’ll leave this to you – who (or what) do you think those flames belong to? Let us know you best guesses in the comments below!

 

“Kill it with Fire!”

~Sisters of Battle

  • barry sadler

    Looks like the mist from yncarne to me, maybe they’ll get a stand alone codex

  • Chris Hateley

    It’s a space marine.

    • Luca Lacchini

      Legion of the Damned subfaction with a bunch of kits, Deathwatch style.

  • Kabal1te

    Surprised that ynarri wasn’t brought up as an option.

  • Deacon Ix

    Surprised it hasn’t been suggested:- it’s obviously the flames from incense burners on the new plastic sisters.

    • no no no, it’s obviously the exhaust fumes from the plastic Thunderhawk!

    • AEZ

      do you hear that tick? it’ the clock being reset 😀

  • Spade McTrowel

    Upside-down raggedy Squat beards.

  • eMtoN

    Obviously it is Vect’s chariot. It is powered by burning the very souls of his slaves – the Eldritch fire is a result of that.

  • Defenestratus

    Avatar of Khaine!

    • Shinnentai

      Nah – the current avatar model is only 24 years old. Got to wait for the 25th aniversary before it’s retired >__>

  • I’d say GW has to stop releasing such smoke & flame stuff. It’s getting boring for me and in my eyes doesn’t even look good.

  • dark-tadpole

    It’s the twin tails of a comet being ridden by a new Stormcast champion.

  • AntonisLak

    plastic fire dragons oO

  • timon meijer

    Nah – the current avatar model is only 24 years old. Got to wait for the 25th aniversary before it’s retired >__>

  • Jose Costa

    Obviously it is Vect’s chariot. It is powered by burning the very souls of his slaves – the Eldritch fire is a result of that.

  • abaddonsmummy

    It’s the return of a Primarch, and this is him lighting his fart.
    Got to be, surely.
    I’ll eat my hat if it’s not!
