GW: Rumor Engine “Like Clockwork”

Games Workshop has another teaser image for you – can you figure out what this one is?

Clocks, gears, and mechanisms are all the clues you’re going to get from GW in this latest rumor engine:

“Work it out, and you may well have just given yourself a sneak preview of an upcoming release. Fail, and…well, wild guessing is pretty fun anyways!”

Oh my…What could this be?

The exposed cogs could certainly be a clue for the Adeptus Mechancius. We do know they are getting some new Knights – but GW generally doesn’t tease things they’ve already shown previews of. But maybe its another unit – something smaller perhaps?

All your cogs are belong to us…

At the same time, I’m also getting a very Age of Sigmar vibe. We saw a similar “device” with the Lord-Orinator’s video:

Plus he’s got that weird circle/gyro thing on his back too:

Could this be for some other Stormcast thing? Quite possibly.

On the other hand, we know the next 3 for Warhammer 40,000:

Could it be something from one of these books? Or perhaps it’s from the upcoming Daughters of Khaine line:


Hmm…the mystery unfolds!


Well Internet Detectives – what do you think? Is it from something that’s been announced or it this something completely different? Let us know your best guess in the comments below!

  • Tshiva keln

    So basically it could be anything.

    • fat spider

      The usual conclusion for BoLS hahaha

  • generalchaos34

    My bet is new stormcast artillery/ war machine of some kind, the symbol on the bottom is like a compass tool, which we also see mirrored on the Lord Ordinators belt. Plus it would make sense for the ordinator to be able to actually do something within a stormcast army since they currently do NOTHING

    • Kabal1te

      I suspect you are on to something

    • Koldan

      The “compass tool” or “device” as the author of this article calls it, is named a sextant. But noone would make a symbol for it without a circle at the top. Here on this clock, whatever this clock is measuring, it is most likely just the latin number V turned upside down.

  • Steve L Duelist

    Lion’s broken alarm clock

    • Borja Saiz Bustamante

      Yes… from the inquisition… Yes… A Vindicare would be cool. User name Steve L … That one. On your list already? I see …

  • kobalt60

    Hi tech dash mounted astrolabe, on the plastic thunderhawk

  • Chet Atkinson

    Doesn’t look very crisp whatever it is.

    • euansmith

      That’s what I was thinking. It is either a very small detail, blown up huge; or a terrain kit like the AoS ones.

  • Fyourdatajack

    The symbol at the bottom looks like its from Necromunda

  • MechBattler

    It’s Emp’s pocket watch from that time he was really into steampunk.

  • Limpingfox

    It’s the broken Squat clock, on the back of the new 40k standard bearers for the resurgent Sqaradrun Warlords!

  • bad mood

    What did all the other preview pics turn out so far?

  • EnTyme

    I mentioned something about plastic Sisters, and it reset. Odd.

  • Chris

    It’s a space marine.

    • Bri B

      Always a good bet, unfortunately.

  • zeno666

    Its a space marine

  • “Hmm…perhaps some kind of death-clock?”

    • josh

      Heh, isn’t that what you presented last year, professor?

    • euansmith


    • LankTank

      I’d do anything for Dethklok

  • Spade McTrowel

    I may not know what it’s supposed to be, but I do know what it will be used for: Aspiring Champion Flayer Flayed.

    • Jared van Kell

      It is an Adeptus Mechanicus themed terrain piece.

    • euansmith

      That is my favourite comment this week, booooi!

  • Kyle Stetson

    I think it looks way more Sigmar than Skitarii.
