Games Workshop’s latest Rumor Engine is here and this teaser is soaring to new heights!

It’s Rumour Engine time, and this one is of something we think is PARTICULARLY awesome – if only we could tell you what it is…


Okay – that’s a pretty big teaser today! There is one force that immediately comes to mind just based off of this iconography:


That’s right – the Space Cops of the Grim-Dark, The Adeptus Arbites, fit this all most too perfectly.


Now, considering Necromunda is coming soon and the Arbites are know to patrol that beat…well, it fits! But before we rule out all the other options, let’s at least take a look at them:

Stormcast Eternals

Granted, they are more into “Lightning & Hammers” as their go-to, but they do have quite a few bird-like things as well.

Astra Militarum


Maybe Lord Solar Mecharius is back with a fancy new piece of wargear! It’s not like the Arbites are the only Imperial faction that rocks the Eagle…


The Aelfs of Age of Sigmar are also known to rock bird motifs, too. What if that’s NOT an eagle but a redesign of a Phoenix?

Adeptus Custodies

Oh and let’s not discount the Emperor’s Golden Boys either. They totally have Imperial Eagles all over their armor!


Whatever it is, this Rumor Engine looks pretty cool. Maybe GW has been watching a lot of Portlandia and decided to put a bird on it. Regardless, I’m looking forward to seeing this model when it gets revealed in full!



Okay Internet Detective Agency – you know what to do! Let us know your best guesses in the comments below!
