We’ve actually seen quite a bit of Blackhand the Destroyer lately–well, alternate universe versions of him, anyway. Between Warlords of Draenor‘s alternate timeline and the Warcraft movie’s separate universe, we’ve seen encountered him several times, but not quite like this.

Kate “Smirka” Smirnova’s portrayal of the Horde chieftain is truly remarkable (just check out the exhaustive process she went through making the costume in the gallery below), and worth a venture through the Dark Portal:
