Henry Cavill is in the new Total War: Warhammer 2 DLC

Painting Warhammer miniatures made Cavill’s nerdy dreams come true.

When Henry Cavill isn’t slaying monsters and saving the princess of Cintra as everyone’s favorite Witcher, Geralt of Rivia, he’s been known to spend his free time being quite the nerd. Besides the well known story of getting the call to play Superman while he was raiding in World of Warcraft, Cavill has spoken many times about the superiority of PC gaming, and isn’t shy about sharing his love for painting miniatures and playing Warhammer.

It seems that Cavill’s very public display of his love for Total War: Warhammer 2 hasn’t gone unnoticed by the game’s developers Creative Assembly, as it’s been discovered that the game’s upcoming DLCThe Warden and the Paunch — will feature a new character modeled after none other than Henry Cavill himself. The epic war between High Elves and Greenskins will feature a new special addition to the forces of good, with the High Elf Loremaster ‘Cavill,’ who sports a special ability called White Wolf, which just so happens to be Geralt of Rivia’s nickname.

“For me I love nothing more than bringing the world of Warhammer to life, and like many of our fans I get a buzz out of playing with a new character or painting one of my minis at home,” Total War: Warhammer 2 game director Richard Aldridge said to PCGamesN. “So when when I saw a certain Mr Cavill mentioned that he enjoys nothing more than firing up Total War: Warhammer or painting a few models in his spare time, I thought it would be fun to somehow inject him into the game, like we have with a number of developers over the years. You might even spot me.”

“With the Warden and the Paunch coming up, it felt like a good time to include Henry, and what better way than having a mighty Loremaster of Hoeth by your side with a few personal special traits to play with when starting a campaign as Eltharion.”

Total War: Warhammer 2 — The Warden and The Paunch DLC will be available to buy on Steam on May 21 for £7/$9.
