While most models for Bushido are unique characters, and thus have lots of complex things they can do, sometimes you need simple, straight-forward figures that cost a few points less to fill in your forces. That's where models like Kira come in. She's a new monk for the Temple and she can be a little... pushy.
Along with the new figure, there's also an announcement about the upcoming Grand Masters event. It will be at the UK Games Expo. The winner of the event will work with the design team to come up with their own figure for the game (I'd suggest making a giant polar bear, but that's me).
