Like the Thamurkan Rulebook for Warhammer Fantasybattles the guys from Forgeworld also make a Blackfire Pass Supplemental for their Tabletop. Last info was in April and the Book will be on sale this december. Along with some new Orks, Dwarfs and Averland Humans. Marius Leitdorf was mentioned so it is likely that it is set in the current timeline before good old Marius "Klaus Kinski" Leitdorf disapears.

They say it looks like Warhammer Online and actually I think the Airship was exactly the Airship which was used in the MMO to reach Khemri.
So all in all it could be used as some fluff and maybe a military campaign set in the Black Fire Pass region.
