Games Workshop Rumor Engine – Click To Detonate

2 Minute Read

There is a new Rumor Engine from Games Workshop and this one is all about that remote detonation.

Sometimes the Rumor Engine is a pretty random bit that is hard to figure out. Sometimes it’s entirely straightforward. This new one falls into the latter catagory. Take a look for yourself:

“We’ve liberally applied some oil so that the Rumour Engine doesn’t make a grinding noise anymore. Let’s see if it improves the futuristic images too.”

We’re looking at some sort of remote, probably with a big red button. And that hand? Well, that’s got some Genestealer Cult vibes for sure – which also fits with the remote detonator-vibe.

That’s either a member of the Genestealer Cult or they have the same manicurist. So what does this mean? Are we on the road to another Genestealer Cult invasion? New models? New Tactics? Probably all three, yes. But the question is now when will this model get released? Are we a couple months away or will this be one of those long game previews that takes a year to come out?


We will have to wait to find out. In the meantime, it might be good to brush up on your Genestealer Cult Army basics.


What do you think? Is it a new Genestealer cult miniature or are the Tyranids swapping out Bio-weapons for Technological Weapons? Let us know in the comments!
