Creative Assembly has outlined their plans for Total War: WARHAMMER DLC.
The DLC will include new units, new Heroes, Legendary Lords, a free campaign expansion and a new playable race. Not bad at all.
“With both Rome II and Attila we were able to release playable factions, new formats and even a free campaign expansion as a thanks to players for supporting Total War,” said Rob Bartholomew, Brand Director at CA. “The Warhammer Fantasy Battles World is gigantic, and we’re looking forward to exploring it over the forthcoming trilogy. But that incredible cast of characters and monsters also provides us the chance to make lots of interesting Free DLC to support our games over time.”
The planned Free DLC is highlighted in this image which was posted on the wiki.
The update also reveals the paid DLC although these are subject to change according to CA. These release plans are as follows:

Typically they’ll reflect the theme of the Pack, probably having been instrumental in the conflict. Given their power and rarity, you might only be able to field one unit of them at a time, or they may be subject to other restrictions.
Race Packs introduce a new playable Race to the game, either as a first appearance, or adding a full Unit roster, Heroes, Lords and playable Legendary Lords to non-playable existing races in the core game. They might typically include:
A supercharged version of a Race Pack, Campaign Packs not only contain a brand new Race for use in the Grand Campaign and Multiplayer, but also add a new Challenge Campaign to the game. Themed on an epic event from the Warhammer Lore, these self-contained Campaigns will present a distinct and challenging scenario. Contents might typically include:
