Games Workshop Rumor Engine: ‘Looking Creepier Everyday’

2 Minute Read
Aug 2 2022

The latest Rumor Engine is out and it’s looking like a Creeper. Allow me to explain.

We’ve got a skeleton! And I’ve got a very odd comparison to make but before we get there together, you need to check out the latest Rumor Engine from Games Workshop. Because it’s Tuesday and that’s just how it works.

“Yank the Thrice-blessed Ripcord, turn the Sacred Crank of Our Martyred Lady, and kick the Sanctified Part Of The Side Panel That Gets Things Moving – it’s time for another bestowal from the Rumour Engine.”

So what the heck are we looking at today?! Well, it’s a Skeleton. And it’s got some fur-like stuff surrounding it. I don’t think that’s a good thing for the previous owner of that skeleton. So what could it be? I’m not so sure about it — other than it reminds of the The Creeper.


Big, toothy grin. Strange “Fur” substance around it’s back. Yeah, this skeleton is sharing some Creeper-vibes. But I seriously doubt we’re getting The Creeper in the Worlds of Warhammer. So, with that said, what the heck is up with this Rumor Engine? Well, the fact that it’s a skeleton doesn’t really help. And the strange stuff around it could be anything. Reminds me a certain Necron’s victim.


I don’t know if the Creeper skeleton is getting it’s flesh removed or what. But it could also be hanging in some fur or something. Maybe that’s a Khorne-thing? Point is, we’ve got a lot of guesses to make on this one. So if you’ve got ideas we would like to hear them in the comments!

This latest Rumor Engine has us pretty stumped — all theories are welcome on this one.


What the heck is this skeleton and which army do you think is being teased? Let us know in the comments!
