What an unusual shape. Eldar?

Presume it is AOS Elves.

That screams AoS, but I'm not quite sure it's elves. At least not Lumineth, their weapons seem a different kind of ornate. Utilitarian shapes, but covered in runes, swirling patterns and tassels, as opposed to this spiky two-pronged stabby thing.

 

For now I'm going to guess either Scions of the Flame, the missing Warcry warband, which also have some fancy looking helmets and adornments, from what little we've seen of them, or something Slaaneshi, as the shape feels very appropriate and there was also that brazier that looked similar in style to the more recent Slaanesh releases.

Unironically, I'd love to see that.

The paint seems to be darker than you'd expect for wraithbone so Slaanesh or AoS elves, though the prongs or protrusions on the sides don't really make it look that much like what we've seen of the Lumineth.

Genuinely came into this thread just to say WORT WORT WORT

 

On topic, could be some sort of strange Eldar weapon? I'm still hoping for Exodites but I realize most of the hints I thought were Exodites turned out to be for the new AoS Elves.

Long as the "Halo: Even More Skulls" bits were compatible with the Astra Militarum and Astartes lines...

I'm thinking this rumor engine is AOS as well, most of the 'ornate' weapons in 40k include something to suggest they're powered.

I think it's something Warcry related.

It looks a little bit like a weapon a Blitzer from Blood bowl would have. But we have all the elves bar High Elves and its probably too big.

Warcry is my bet. Otherwise it might be a very early picture from the next wave of Elves, who are speculated to be Malerion's shadowy folk.
