Don't get me wrong, Cheng Pu was invaluable to Wu, long serving, wise head, an example to others, did a lot of important roles like securing Sun Quan's throne, always did well. Every kingdom needs a Cheng Pu. In terms of DW type stuff they can do, one saving Sun Ce from Zu Lang, rowing with Zhou Yu and what?

Didn't he have a massive row with Lu Xun as well?

People linked to a picture of Zhou Cang when he was announced, but not to Cheng Pu -- so here, have one.

Cheng Pu

EDIT: They revised the image of Cheng Pu so it's tiny (761x1000 -> 200x263)! So I edited the link to the previous, nice big version.

EDIT 2: Apparently they decided to edit that one too -- so give it a day or two and we should have a better link.

In the meantime, have some screenshots -- apparently wall climbing is a thing.

I assume that is your wishlist diegroup? Welcome to the forum

KW has scans of Xiahou Dun, Guan Yu and Zhao Yun here

Thoughts on looks:

Cheng Pu: I very much like the look. Stern, wizened, strong appearance, the spear stands out in a way that doesn't tend to (for me) with weapons and glad they have gone for his traditional weapon, god mix of costumes with armour that looks well fitted. The blue scarf is a nice little touch 8/10

Xiahou Dun: Xiahou Dun's new look generally feels return to past, not been a big fan of his yellow sleeves and legs but the blue and silver chest armour looks lovely. Hate his new haircut 5/10

Guan Yu: I don't like the helmet for Dw9. Everything else, the red face, the long beard, the green and red robe with golden dragon looks very nice and very Guan Yu but the helmet just does something to his face that feels wrong. 6

Zhao Yun: Looks nice, the white knight with the armour (though not a fan of big shoulderugards), the green sleeves and trim, the golden dragons. It feels like Zhao Yun 7

Man Chong has leaked out and looks we de some scans.

Fairly happy with him, helps Xu Huang as a friend in the novel, opens some mid Wei's fights with Wu as one of their key commanders which is something DW hasn't tended to cover so offers something new, I assume will have an engineer role for his Hefei work which Wei doesn't have. Perhaps lacks personality and relations though and has a large pre Fan gap due to being a law officer

Wei is the kingdom that I have least interest in but I think Man Chong has lots of potential. Where are the scans DZ? What weapon is he using?

I like the weapon but I think I imagined him being older than he is there!
