The latest lord to come with Total War: Warhammer 3 Champions of Chaos DLC has been officially revealed, following a pretty neat sneak peek. He is Valkia the Bloody, a Khorne-aligned demon queen whose melee abilities are among the most fearsome in the history of the strategy game series.
Once the queen of a northern tribe of barbarians, Valkia was resurrected by Khorne to be his personal consort.

Additionally, all characters in his faction gain a 20% movement bonus after winning a battle. They also gain access to bloodshed and gain 50% more souls from sacrificing captives – blood for the Blood God and all that.
