There’s a new Advent Engine and it’s teasing some Xenos goodies. Pretty sure it’s Aeldari of some kind. Have a look for yourself!

Sometimes the teasers are tough to figure out. But other times…well, we get tossed an easy softball like this one. If this one ISN’T an Aeldari of some kind I’m going to be surprised.

“We’re turning on the Advent Engine again so that it may harness the erratic warp tides and give us another look into the future. Don’t stare too hard, though, because that way madness lies.”

This one’s got a lot of tell-tale Aeldari features. That much is apparent. I suppose the real question is what’s this from? You know what this kind of reminds me of…Dark Reapers.

It’s got all the same design elements from the possible grip-like section to the stablizer appendage. Plus all the knobs and doodads that scream Aeldari. It’s kind of at a jaunty angle as well, possibly resting on a hip or shooting an arching shot? We’ll have to wait to find out if I’m right on this one.

How long in the tooth are those models anyhow? And perhaps importantly, how old is Maugan Ra’s model?


Regardless, I’m pretty sure we’re looking at some pretty heavy duty firepower from the Aeldari. We’ll have to wait and see how this one pans out. For now, this is my final answer for the Advent Engine Day 3. What do you think it could be? Drop us a line in the comments with your theories!
