It is a Dragon
I'm sure the KC will consider this in their deliberations, but one thing to consider is that for new players coming to LCC raising armies from the old factions may become expensive, as the figures become progressively harder to find. To keep the game moving it might be a good idea to allocate at least some of any new mainline factions that do appear.
If it is felt that the Outlaws need a bump then the idea quoted below may be a way of doing that. As anyone suddenly getting (or re-getting) into castle this year is likely to have these guys, and as Loreos and Lenfald got the last two factions, Garheim and Outlaws getting these would seem fair.

I suppose against that is that it is nice to make your own men up, just using the colours as a guide.
