Alternate Heroes are cosmetics designed to replace the default Hero portrait of the class. These alternate skins do not affect the gameplay, but merely add visual diversity to the game. All of them, apart from the 1000-win alternate portrait of the default hero, come with a unique set of emotes, and some of them also have their own thematic card backs. In this guide, we'll explain how to obtain Death Knight's alternate Heroes which can be used to replace the default Hero, The Lich King.
For Death Knight, five alternate Hero skins exist:
How to Obtain Arthas, Kingslayer in Hearthstone
Arthas, Kingslayer is the alternate version of the default hero, The Lich King.
The skin can be obtained by reaching 1000 wins with Death Knight in Ranked, Arena, or Duels game modes.
Arthas, Kingslayer does not have a unique set of emotes, nor does it come with a card back.
How to Obtain Arthas Menethil in Hearthstone
Arthas Menethil depicts Arthas before he fully became The Lich King. The skin was the first 3D modeled legendary skin in Hearthstone. The portrait responds to in-game actions with special animations (such as attacking, playing minions, casting spells and emoting), has a unique hero tray, and new voicelines.
The skin was obtainable as a part of Arthas Menethil Bundle. The bundle was purchasable for 2500 Runestones or $24.99 USD from November 8th, 2022 until December 13th, and it included 5 Death Knight packs.

Perhaps I missed the news, but did they already announce whether a Death Knight portrait would be added as a level 100 rewards track choice?
I am inclined to wait for this and refrain from claiming my next portrait in a few more days.
Considering they didn't add it with the current track, my guess is it's gonna get added with the next one
