From the Realm of Suffering…

FFG has announced the Shogunate’s Itami a half Oni blue giant, armed with a kenabo, his human side does show in his inner anatomy, if not his outer appearance.

From the FFG release…

A Shogunate Champion from the Realm of Suffering

Fantasy Flight Games announces Itami, an upcoming single figure hero expansion for Tannhäuser! With his enchanted kenabo, he presents an imposing figure on any battlefield. Drawn forth from Naraka by a blend of science and mysticism, Itami is a hybrid of human and Oni, the denizens of the Realm of Suffering. While even the Shogunate do not fully understand his abilities, they are astounding. For now, he works to ensure the mutual benefits of the Shogunate and the Inferior Worlds, swatting aside enemies with a kenabo wrapped in mystically imbued leather…

Here is his box art.
