The next piece of free DLC for Total War: Warhammer II has been revealed. It’s none other than Tretch Craventail, a Legendary Lord for the Skaven! Tretch leads the Skaven sub-faction Clan Rictus, with bonuses that focus on inducing fear in his enemies and benefiting from treachery (in classic Skaven fashion.)

Tretch will be available to download for free on January 23rd, 2018 at the same time as the Rise of the Tomb Kings race pack. He’ll be available for use in the Eye of the Vortex and Mortal Empires campaigns. You can find him on Steam here.

If you’d like some more background lore on this latest addition, here’s the synopsis of this verminous villain: 

Chieftain of Clan Rictus, the warlord Tretch Craventail is unique amongst his kind. Even for a Race which exemplifies high cunning and peerless guile, Tretch stands head and shoulders above the Skaven pack thanks to his startling gift for underhandedness.

His legendary instinct for self-preservation has saved his skin on many occasions and continues to do so. Moreover, it informs the manner in which he exerts controls over Clan Rictus. In battle, Tretch’s army will gain attack bonuses when ambushing or fighting a battle after an initial retreat. Troops under Tretch’s direct control can vanguard deploy in all battles, and his empire revels in discord, gaining public order bonuses whenever diplomatic treaties are broken.
