A press exclusive featurette can be viewed here:

Deadly Legendary Lords

Malus Darkblade is the scion of Hag Graef and is possessed by a daemon of Slaanesh, Tz’arkan the Drinker of Worlds, whom he can call upon in battle to give him great strength. Riding his ever-loyal Cold One, he can inflict tremendous armor piercing damage and instill fear upon his enemies.

Deathmaster Snikch is the deadliest assassin known to all Skavendom, and his infamy is only exceeded by the mystery which surrounds his whereabouts at any particular time. Armed with Weeping Blades, he excels at dueling other characters but can rely on his stalk ability to prowl the battlefield undetected.

Terrifying New Units

These monstrosities range from new hero units such as the High Beastmaster and Eshin Sorceror to terrifying ground troops such as the Medusa-bound Bloodwrack Shrine, Scourgerunner Chariots, the Poisoned-Wind Mortar Weapons Team and much more.

This Legendary Lords Pack will also welcome in a new update to the base game of Total War: WARHAMMER II which includes a free Legendary Lord for Bretonnia called Repanse de Lyonesse alongside the mighty paladin Henri Le Massif.

Sneaky Magic

The Skaven sorcerer has access to a new Lore of Stealth which has a focus on sneakiness and pulling the strings of battle from afar. These spells are aimed around manipulation of what the enemy see’s and where they’re allowed to move, whilst also including several powerful damage spells that light up the battlefield.
