Doesn't seem like anyone has intentions of posting this one, and I can probably guess why, but I'm here to convince you otherwise, at the risk of creating hopes that can, and might, be utterly destroyed. But I digress, so let's get to it.
Now, as I said I can guess why this one wasn't posted, and what a lot of you are probably thinking: "This looks like AoS".
But does it?
Allow me to present my counterargument. His name is Khârn.
Look at the weights at the end of his chains, now back at the Rumour Engine, now back to Khârn, now back at the Rumour Engine. The Rumour Engine is now
diamonds a World Eaters Retiarius wielding a weighted net. Say that three times fast.
At the very least it's so similar in design that it might even be the same bit pulled from their CAD files, and anyone that knows me knows I have a tendency to go on and on about GW's use of design language to establish a coherent look across their different ranges. Option B to keep it 40k is that it belongs to the Beast Snaggas, but again, the fact that they're practically identical is making all of my alarms go off.
So again, at the risk of creating hopes that might be dashed later on, I must ask: Is this it? Are we finally seeing a sign of the next Traitor Legion rear its spiky, bunny-eared head over the horizon?
If you have any compelling arguments against it, then please, destroy my dreams now so that they won't grow larger.
