Games Workshop has a new Rumor Engine Teaser and it’s going to take a sharp wit to crack this clue.
“It’s rumour engine time, and this one is particularly puzzling…”
My first thought for this bit takes me right to the Skaven miniatures. Something about the curve of this weapon just reminds me of rat-tails.
There is also the cruel looking serrated edge that is very popular for the Skaven model range as well.
However, the Skaven don’t have a monopoly on curved blades with serrated edges, either. We’ve seen the Death Guard get tons of weapons with curved blades recently. However, the blade doesn’t look pitted and dinged up enough to be Death Guard – plus these teasers are generally a few months out and the Death Guard are coming out now…I’d say that probably rules them out.
the Dark Elves or the Dark Eldar might be good candidates for a weapon like this – neither faction has had a release in a while and they are known for their cruel weapons.
The other issue we don’t really have a scale for the size of this blade – it could be a random bit, a hand weapon or the size of a model’s body. It’s hard to really tell. The only real clue is based on the fact you can see tiny pits in the materials. Based on that, I’m leaning towards this blade being on the smaller side of the spectrum and not “man-sized” in proportions.
Another option is that it’s actually “organic” in nature and not a blade but a claw…That would be a pretty good twist!
