GW Rumor Engine: The Paws & Claws

2 Minute Read
Jan 19

Is it a paw or is it a claw? The answer is yes. Check out the latest Rumor Engine from Games Workshop!

I don’t think we’re dealing with the Paw Patrol here. This doggie has some bite based on the size of it’s print. Let’s take a look at the latest Rumor Engine and see if we can’t figure this one out:

“By its very nature, the future offers endless potentiality. However, the Rumour Engine has distilled one image of purest fact from all the infinite possibilities that await. The rest? Well, we’ll have to wait and see!”

It’s kind of interesting, no? I’m wondering what the heck this could be for. Clearly we have a beastial paw here and the bend of the leg is at a strange angle. Is it ready to pounce? What about the strange architecture it’s standing on? And is that blood or icicles forming below it. And does anyone recognize those strange carvings on the stone(?) that it’s standing on?

Anyone want to take a stab at what faction/game system this could be a part of? It could be chaos – Night lords have a habit of standing on strange architecture and leaping down on the unsuspecting victims below.

Maybe a new Chaos Raptor?


Eh…yeah, probably reaching on those. No, I think this is probably something from the Mortal Realms. It’s giving me a ghoulish vibe…or maybe something else that goes bump in the night:

Who knows – it could be some new unit for the vampires. We did see that new Vampire Lord earlier after all…

All will be revealed…one day. It could even be a soon as this weekend! Games Workshop does have a new Preview coming this Saturday. Then again, sometimes these previews take MONTHS to get revealed. I guess we’ll all have to wait and see.


If you’ve got guesses we want to hear them! Drop them in the comments and play along with the Rumor Engine.
