I don’t think that’s a Genie. Check out the latest Rumor Engine from Games Workshop!
Unless 40k is getting Ghost Grenades, I don’t think we’re looking at something from the Grimdark. Then again… take a look for yourself:
The gears of the Rumour Engine grind and and crank up to speed. What revelations will it have for us today?
Well, this is indeed interesting looking. We’ve got a ghostly visage that appears to be coming out of a bejeweled object. Now, let’s start with that wispy figure. My gut tells me that this may have something to do with the Nighthaunt line from Age of Sigmar. I mean, they ARE ghosts, and they are very spindly on their bases (but somehow actually not fragile – having built a bunch, I’m surprised too).
Thematically, it seems appropriate. However, something else that strikes me is that the ghostly face is in the billowing wisp-trail and not on the face – maybe this is close to something like the Spirit Hosts. Perhaps it’s another Endless Spell – but the Nighthaunt Army already has their set:
But now let’s take a look at the Bejeweled Object the ghost-like figure is coming from – what the heck is that from?!
I think this bit will probably be the piece of the puzzle that unlocks the rest of this mystery. But for now, I leave this one to you Internet Detectives – where do you think this particular bit comes from? And what do you suppose the rest of this model is?
