GW: Rumor Engine “Power Plant”

Start your Rumor Engines! Games Workshop is back with another teaser and this one will get your motor running!

via Warhammer Community

“What has the Rumour Engine unearthed this week?”

Well now, that is very curious indeed! We’ve got a lot of exposed piping and what looks like some type of exhaust ports. Could this be a new type of engine of some sort? We certainly think so! Now our first inclination to go with something from the Grim Dark. It could certainly be a new Imperial design – and that leaves lots of options open. Ad Mech, Astra Militarum, even Space Marines are a good fit. But what if it’s something else, like say something for Necromunda?! More gangs ARE on the way. They are techincally part of the Imperium as well…

But let’s not rule out the AoS side of things, either. This bit could also fit in with the aesthetics of the Kharadron Overlords. Now, this is a long shot for sure. They already have their battletome and a “full” model range. But maybe they are prepping up for an undersea expedition…


So what do you think Internet? What could this bit be a part of? Let us know in the comments below!

  • Deathwing

    My moneys on Necrons

    • Kefka

      that doesn’t look anything like necrons. with its exposed parts and pipes its much closer to AdMech if 40K at all or KO, maybe Freeguild stuff

      • Prisoner 42

        It’s the Men of Iron they’ve finally returned.

        • euansmith

          I, for one, welcome our genocidal automatronic overlords. They don’t care, of course, but I will go willingly in to the Exterminatron.

      • Fraser1191

        I think it’s too clean to be Ad-mech

  • EnTyme

    I’m betting this ties in to last week’s teaser. Ad Mech or IK

  • Pl4gu3 B4st4rd

    It’s a Space Marine.

    • Chris

      Oi, that’s my line!

      • euansmith

        Remember the Olde Worlde!

  • SilentPony

    Pretty sure its House Van Saar…

  • Jonathon Runge

    It’s a female Thunder Warrior in power armor created to bolster the Sisters of Battle in their purge of the Primaris Marines.

  • grenstauf

    My guess is the back of the waist of a Fulgrim daemon primarch. Anyone else hoping thats what it is?

    • Chris

      I am now.

  • piglette

    Named Iron Hands character to kick off the IH splash release.

  • Bastion8889

    new noise marine backpacks. im still calling Emperors children standalone codex Q4 2018 or Q1 2019. led by Fulgrim to be the third traitor primarch in 8th ed.

  • ZeeLobby

    Clearly a warjack.

  • Severius_Tolluck

    Hmm, weird, looks like a two stroke motor with like 4 pipes coming off it. Oh no, could it be a Trike for a Squat in Nwcromuda!? lol.. not likely, but would be cool.

  • Jim Cook

    Plastic Thallax? How’s plastic AdMech doing for TEQs? It’s kinda got that shoulder-waist-Gothic-arch thing going on

  • ja_kub_sz

    One of the guild factions for necromunda… I’d say water.

  • Ryan Miller

    I foresee those new little mini knights.. what were they called? Oh yeah! Armiger Warglaives! Either that or Robo Manus in a Destructor Dreadnought!

    • zeno666

      Robo Manus from Battletoads!?

  • zeno666

    A new imperial faction
