My wild guess is that it's from a new Mutilators kit. We got the revamped Obliterators (As a release even if not in a box), but the Mutilators are still old models.

IMHO, it's not DG.

Look at it.These are all claws, they are not fingers, they are too sharp. And even in the article they use the pun "clawing". 

 

I think it will be something new, maybe Huron Blackheart? Or a new character? Maybe even a new future so need World Eaters weave?

 

Dunno, I for sure can be wrong.

It feels extremely Death Guardy for sure, and that was my first reaction, but they could be playing on that.

 

It's not exactly the same as DG fists (it features claws rather than fingers), that goop could very well be blood rather than slime, and DG have never had a monopoly on symbols growing out of armour.

I would have expected a solo DG character to come out alongside PA. My cynical guess is that they'll package a new DG character in with the new DG Start Collecting, so that everyone who bought Dark Imperium is forced to buy it. 

 

A super long shot, but maybe it's a Chosen upgrade kit for each of the founding legions.

Looks deathguard to me though it does seem a bit obvious.

 

It 'could' be another faction and be some kind of poisoned weapon. I was wondering if it is marine scaled or if it could be redemptor dread sized

Everyone seems convinced it's a deathgdeathguard model. So even to just go against the grain.

A model/kit or upgrade kit for the new Fabius Bile faction.

Unfortunately, the last Blackstone Fortress release has already been announced - the one with the giant Spindle Drones.

They did say there was going to be new Kill Team stuff in the future. Maybe a one-off DG character for that? Or whatever the next 40k-based Warhammer Quest is, the sequel to Blackstone Fortress.

Judging by the bolts, rivets, and liquid details it heavily leans to SM size.

A model/kit or upgrade kit for the new Fabius Bile faction.

They’d be coming alongside Fabius, and therefore we’d know about them by now.

I know, it LOOKS similiar to Death Guard.

But the 'finger' the blood is dripping from looks like it's parted into two.
Think "backwards" Edward Scissorhands.
Claws that can open up, to shred even more, once inside a victim. (There are (illegal) Arrow tips for hunting that work similiar)

...or more importantly HOLDING a victim, so it doesn't slide off your claws.
Who'd want to HOLD a victim, instead of letting it go?

Or maybe they open up and work like a syringe?

Either way, this could be a curveball they throw at us.
Instead of being the usual o°○ triple circles of Nurgle, maybe it's the base.of one of Slaanesh's twisted Gender symbols?

I was going to say New/updated DG character for the PA book with Bile iin but maybe a new super marine for Bile's lot, the nodules on the back of the fist look like cables not pustules or growths

I hear you, and I can see what you saw in these. 

 

Maybe it's even a new event exclusive DG, who knows?

 

But I'm not confident as you. Still think it can be something else.

Either Death Guard or it's gore and we're looking at a Khornate Space Marine (new berserker kit?).

Doesn't Fabius Bile have a DG companion in the books or am I mis-remembering? Maybe Fabius is getting an eclectic release of him plus friends.

It would be great if they correct the weird thing that lords and sorcerer's don't have T5 and death guard rules...

If they DG a unique lord kit that would be great. The current CSM options dont look right, and also have a thunder hammer.

At first I went out and looked at the SM heroes series 3 set to see if this was one of those models, it was not.  I'm glad GD will likely get something even if it is something small.

I don't see how you guys can come to the conclusion that it belongs to any other of the Chaos range but Death Guard. All other flavors of Chaos has the chaos trim DG does not because they are all in Mk. III armor. There is nothing about that shot of that is inconsistent with the DG aesthetic.

Its definitely a heretic's power fist. It has a lot of features that support it being death guard but it doesnt appear to be bulky enough (same for mutilator). I like the idea of it being a wounded berserker or an emperors children even just a regular aspiring champion.

In combination with what looked like a nurgling hand playing a bone flute that was in an earlier Rumour Engine image, I think it's Death Guard.   I had been hoping for a plastic Daemon Prince, but a new Lord of Something seems plausible (hopefully with a more useful ability than the current Lord, or even a gun!!).   Could be an alternate psyker too, although a power fist on the off hand would be unusual.

 

Another possibility is that it's a non-Japanese Space Marine Heroes wave 3 release.   Wave 2 included some non-Japanese terminator variants.   I presume they still have a few spare digital assets lying around for Death Guard from early 8th edition.  

 

Off topic, if Space Marine Heroes releases are determined by whatever they have spare digital assets for, expect wave 4 to be necrons I reckon.

Yes, it is without the chaos trim, neither does the Chaos Noise Marine, (not the old upgrades) and the Thousand Sons have a different take on the chaos trim. Some of the new Chaos aesthetics do take cues from the Death Guard range and they were not they only Legion to use mark III.

 

Now all in on the balance of things and at first look, it strongly suggests Death Guard, but GW have hidden just enough of the power fist produce some ambiguity over which non follower of the corpse Emperor it is! I think followers of Slaanesh and Khorne deserve some hope, given that it has been hinted that another big player than the Silent King will/could be returning in 9th!
