I just looked at his Wikipedia page, having been a fan since Trollslayer, I hope it would be AoS.

This is just me hoping, but if anyone could bring F. Jaeger into AoS it might be William King and Teclis (who actually met Gotrek in Elfslayer if I remember correctly).

Gotrek did indeed meet the great mage Teclis - and was very grumpy about it!

In those release leaks there's a grot bomber mentioned. Its probably 40k but may be AoS. 😬

The Grot Bombers are planes for Aeronautica Imperialis.

@Landohammer I just do not agree people tend to overreact when their army is concerned. You can win ultra-competitive games with almost any unit in Idoneth Deepkin book but Lotann, Leviadon and Shakrs. And Sharks still can be good in friendly games/narrative games. 

Also calling for brand new faction to be updated with new models just over the year after it was released is just unrealistic knowing that GW releases are planned for 1-2 years in advance. 

Sylvaneth and other books are just bad examples. GW made a lot of effort to bring all armies up to AoS 2.0 standard. Once we get 2.0 Books for DoT, KO and Seraphons we can judge GW. But calling for new units for almost brand new army is just unrealistic. 

I think once all factions are up to 2.0 (which could happen in Q1-Q2 2020) I think we will see new armies mixed with small updates for existing armies. Take Deepkin for example I can see them with new book in 2021 example along new unit, hero, endless spells. Now GW won't need to rush refreshed battletomes and can flesh out factions with smaller releases like that. Sometimes it will be new unit, sometimes only new hero + endless spells. And I think Maggotkin, Deepkin, DoK and SCE will be first to get that.

Part of this is just bad internal balance of points costs though. Reducing the costs of most of the non-eel units could make the list a lot better. It's not in immediate need of an entirely new tome.

Agreed, but Namartii would also need Higher bravery. They‘re too expensive, squishy and they flee in masses, that‘s too many negative points.

Inspiring Presence is the general workaround for big units. Also, don´t forget the bravery bonus for 10 models ;) The most forgotten rule in whole AoS

New Rumor Engine:

Yeah...I got nothing on this one.  the one thing I'll note is that the tassels look like they match with the spear butt looking rumor engine from a while back, so it looks like a shared aesthetic, and because I can't see this one being 40k, I'm guessing they are both AoS.

I can't think of any existing units with this kind of aesthetic, so new race, maybe?

Decorated horns or more likely tusks ... looks interesting.
The decorations make me think Slaanesh or similar however I could see it easily be a named character for a destruction faction that doesn't necessarily resemble the rest of the faction that much.

Looks like the dice for the sisters of battle box are perfectly sensible and usable dice...

I must have missed something.

Assuming the two images are of the same model, I could see a rider with a spear on some kind of horned creature, or else something more like a minotaur or satyr like horned creature.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say it's either Hysh aelves because the casing of the tassel in the first rumour engine pic is similar to the less aquatic elements of the Idoneth or it's some kind of expansion for the Cypher Lords because I feel it sort of fits their asethtic.

The Gem on the horns is a pretty good match for the gems Cypher Lords are covered with, so that's a good call out. The metalwork is a little differently shaped though, and their stuff is spikier.  Plus their aesthetic is Hyshian, so...

I'm going to guess either Tzeentch or Aelf.  It doesn't quite line up with anything we've seen, so it's hard to pin down.

I hope it's aelvish - I need egyptian-like miniatures for my free city. That "eye" on the horns definitely looks egyptian.

Lots of people were already guessing  a Kurnothi faction was in the works prior to this rumour engine...

I'm thinking (and hoping) this is a return of Orion King in the Wood.

I dont get the "metal tips" on the "horns".

If it were Antlers or a Weapon, it wouldnt make much sense covering the piercing part.

If it is a tail, now an extra weight could be effective to hit something harder.

I thought Slaanesh at first glance. It's got that ornate look to it. That said it could also be aelven. 

As for the "blunt tips" don't forget that, in reality, pointed bone can shatter and break so tipping the end of a bone/antler weapon isn't too daft. It's just like putting a shoe on a horse. In the wild its fine, but for prolonged combat it actually makes good logical sense. Plus never underestimate the power of a ball against armour and the resulting breaking of bones and crushing of it.

That is really interesting! Learning something every day i guess.

Is it not obvious ? It's Dasher...the fastest Reindeer of Santa Claus. He came from the far away north, land of the snow elves, to bring the most wonderful Christmas of all the Mortal Realms ....

And to massacre some beastmen of course...

Hmm. I am sure I have made scenery out of similar bits from banners. Failing memory! Will need to check when I get in

Both true yet IDK usually need to save their CP for turn 3.
