In this week’s Rumor Engine, we are highly certain what it is. While it’s easy to determine what piece of object Games Workshop has thrown us this week, the real question is, who or where is it from?
At first glance, there is no doubt that it’s a spear type of a weapon. There’s a blade that looks like it’s made from a rock instead of metal, and its wooden shaft has a tooth tied into the binding. The material that this spear is made of points us directly to the Orks.
In the context of Warhammer 40,000, definitely, this weapon is from no other than the Orkz. The look of the spear alone is quite tribal and explicitly savage. No other race in the 40,000 fits the bill.
However, we do have to remember that Age of Sigmar is also a thing, and recently, it’s been getting a lot of love from Games Workshop. In this context, this tribal looking spear could also be from the Savage Orruks.
Looking at the photo of a Savage Orruk below, the material and build of its spear is closely similar to the one from the Rumor Engine.
Until we get a confirmation from Games Workshop, we really can’t say which of the two is this week’s Rumor Engine pointing us to. At least now, we can expect one of the two will be getting an upgrade real soon.
