Netflix's latest The Witcher star reveal is Roach, the horse

They've ponied up.

The Netflix gods heard your cries and are giving the people what they want - a first look at Roach in upcoming The Witcher series.

Unsurprisingly, they've cast a horse that looks like Roach from the game to play Roach in the series. However, there might be a bit more to this teaser image than meets the eye.

Executive producer of the upcoming show, Lauren S. Hissrich, tweeted out the image of Geralt sat on Roach with a follow up, telling users: "Squint and you'll see something else in this picture."

Attentive fans have picked up on the glint of what could be a silver sword pommel on the bottom right of the horse - either that or Hissrich just wants everyone to really appreciate the fine details in the scenery, though my bets are on the sword thing.

Earlier this month, more images were revealed of fan favourite The Witcher characters, though I'm rather disappointed that Roach didn't get his own little description of personality traits like Geralt, Ciri and Yennefer did.

With Netflix's The Witcher slated for release later this year, it won't be long now until we get to see Roach in action, though maybe not this sort of action.

Horsin' around.
