Oh! So Maliti was still a real person?  But what happened to him then when the Changeling was using his identity for so long?  I'm assuming he was "disposed of"?

Well, I think that given the size of the Mortal Realms , and the fact that the Season Of War (both Seeds Of Hope and Firestorm) is still an "all out war" time, so a chaotic (:P) period of time, the Changeling's plot wasn't noticed until Sigmar's agents finally caught him in Hammerhal Gyhra. And the Changeling is a very cunning creature, and Maliti only one person who canot be everywhere at once, so I think the daemon played carefully his hand...

On a sidenote, Greywater Fastness in Ghyran was the first city founded by Maliti and using Realmstone as power source, and this city is (still) loyal and uncorrupted.

Edit: Here's the cryptic Facebook quotes:

AoS: The stars have aligned, and a strange constellation has formed in skies across the Mortal Realms - unusually, it looks just like an upcoming release. We blame the Rumour Engine - do you know what it is?

40kThe Rumour Engine has something exciting to show you - first one to get it right wins our undying approval!

I'm trying hard to justify this somehow NOT being an elf thing, but struggling. 

Thing is, if this is the Order hero then it must also have the feather and scroll/parchment? But that's a human type of thing surely? (the parchment). 

Which means this could be an additional model, an elf additional model. Its surely AOS, right? 

The chat about stars and constellations could be a reference to all sorts of factions though: various gods, navigation stuff, that light realm, no idea.

Feather for Free Guild...that quiver is very elvish...

What if they start introducing mixed races, as ways to add to both general factions/aesthetics? So, the Herald of Order is a half-aelf, perhaps? Mixing things from assorted parts of the Grand Alliance would be tge easiest design space, though the DarkOath only fits that if you count her as Chaos Undivided...

Thoughts?

Seems elfish to me, I cant imagine them not doing a whole elf faction with lore and the whole nine, since that aspect of the fluff has been hardly touched

The Quiver could be Vanguard-Hunters for shadespire? 

But my guess is Elves.

You mean Cthulhu elves for sure, right?

Stars align = Cthulhu | Arrows = Elves :-)

New undead archers.  I'm assuming that the undying clue is supposed to be an actual clue, and I think the quiver shape could fit into the Death aesthetic as well.

New faction, surely. One who is heralded by a new constelation of stars. 

To avoid guessing Cthulhu aelves..

..STAR AELVES!? Wearing capes of shimmering starlight, pew pew'ing dudes with black hole arrows. Fiery hair, glowy eyes, a pantheon of gods. :ph34r:

"Undying" is a word I've heard used for elves, with the immortality/eternal youth thing and all.

Seraphon are also undying (being Ancient Toads or dream Daemons)....

You know I would totally not be angry if they introduced every new army with a Shadespire unit as a taste of what's to come. I mean, we've had some pretty wicked looking skellybones, so hopefully some shadespire Aelves??

If we look back at the accompanying text for the past rumour engines that have been solved, were they actually helpful clues?

Not that I recall.  I could be pessimistic and point out the UK news yesterday morning was full of news about Venus and Jupiter conjunction visible in the sky the night before ('stars' aligning), but i dont want to spoil anyones hopes and dreams :$

This is the first rumor engine in a while I'll agree has a good chance of being Elven. That being said, if it is from and elf, I'd say the odds are better at it being a Shadespire squad.
