This week, the almighty Rumour Engine is giving us a punchy image. We’re clawing at potential solutions to this mystery… Maybe you’ll have better luck.

What could it be? We’re sure you can make a good fist of guessing. Head over to the  Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer Age of Sigmar Facebook pages to share your theories.

I'm going to go out on a limb, and say Death Guard or World Eaters.

"Aren't you jumping the gun a little, just assuming from the get go that this is Death G..."

 

Yeah no. You're right. This one is pretty obvious.

Are there any prominent Death Guard characters that don't have a model?

It may be a replacement for the Lord of whatever, who we are now losing from the Dark Imperium Starter Box?

Style is consistent with other Death Guard power fists / claws.

I’m a bit surprised they’re launching more Deathguard stuff considering how much support they had recently compared to a lot of other factions. Kind of feels like it should be another factions turn for some attention from GW.

Might be a generic Death Guard Chaos Lord, since the CSM Chaos Lord doesn't make much sense in a DG army.

Interesting then.

Blackstone fortress or similar?

I'm going out on a limb and saying emperor's children 😁 this wrong clock will eventually be correct!

Lord of Contagion cannot take Power Fist (which this appears to be).

Only Forgeworld heros

Except that there isn't a DG specific Chaos Lord, so it does kinda fit? I see your point, but I also see it remaining a generic Chaos Lord

 

 

 

It may be a piece of terrain, a Custodes/Primaris on top of a DG. The liquid is in a odd place for DG models (although liquid is all over the place for DG). Just an Idea.

Those will probably get thrown into a Start Collecting box down the road. More likely it's one of the other "Mantles" from the Death Guard book: e.g. have the Lord of Contagion, but the codex references Lords of Poxes, Lords of Virulence, Lords of Parasitism, Withering, Flux, etc.

Thinking this could be a curveball and it's Emperor's Children, or Fabius Bile's New Men. But yes, the obvious conclusion to draw would be Death Guard.

This is true about the lord of contagion, but it could come with an updated datasheet.  They did update the primaris sergeants and lieutenants as they released models for them, so who's to say it won't be the same for the DG characters?

Since it's so obvious, my guess is the Death Guard will be a decorative body for a base.

This is a fair point, but I don't believe they've teased Heroes via the Rumour Engine before? I would expect Wave 4 to be another legion.

 

Wave 1 - Ultramarines

Wave 2 - Blood Angels

Wave 3 - Death Guard

Wave 4 - Thousand Sons?

It does look like two horns, that would make up a triangle, on the top of the powerfist. Seems like DG.

With respect, even though they were painted as Ultramarines and Blood Angels, neither wave 1 or 2 had Chapter specific Iconography. 

 

So, really, wave 1 and 2 as just Space Marines. 

Which leaves wave 3 and 4 to potentially be both Death Guard.

This is true - although, they were named as those chapters respectively, with the former even having a short novella. I guess we'll see in the long run.

 

I'm still going to hold out hope Wave 4 is a different legion that hasn't been touched upon yet.

It could potentially be a new kit for models that are currently stuck in limbo with the Dark Imperium box set and have no other models: Lord of Contagion (you can get this guys with the ETB blightlords), Malignant Plaguecaster and Noxious Blightbringer. If it's in the Rumour engine it's probably a while out so could be with the new codex?

 

If I'm being honest I think it's for another Chaos range

I don't recall them every having teased the Heroes guys. Have I missed one?
