The new store exclusive steed for the month of May is Obsidian Steed. This steed appeared in the store starting on May 1st and will be available in the LOTRO Store through May 31st.
Turbine added a full size screenshot for this steed on their web site!
This mount is as fast (+68%) and same morale (250 HP) as the previous store exclusive mounts with the same price tag. This steed is a per character purchase so be sure you spend the Turbine Points on the character you want riding this.
Danania AKA Supergirl of the fabulous danania.net has sent us some pictures of the war-steed in the game including a look of how it dyes. Here is a screenshot of the horse with black hide and the cosmetics dyed crimson. As you can see the blue stays and its sort of little detail sections on the steed that dye.
Since people have been asking about the wingspan of this steed, Danania has also sent in a screenshot of a straight on view to show this. She calls them “leg shields”. Thank you Danania!!
Purchasing this steed will also allow you the use of the appearance items for your War-steed (does not include hide/tail coloring).

If it is just the stats of the horse you are looking for, there are in-game alternatives. The Elf Ambassador and World Renown horses have equal stats but a different look. If it is the look or the cosmetics of this steed that has you enamored, this is your only option.
