New race models!

Any news? :)

Please let them be ready for patch 5.2, pretty please!

Can you perhaps say how it's going? Dwarven models were done before MoP release (if I remember correctly), how is it going with other race models?

They said the dwarves were almost ready at that time, and we have no reference as to how long it takes Blizz to make a new model, so it's impossible to guess.

With the limited news about progress, I wouldn't get your hopes up for any time soon. :P
I'd say mid of 2013
No news this week, just like the last time someone asked, and the time before that, and the time before that....

As Soxxy said, the Dwarves are the closest to being completed. That doesn't mean that they're done and they've been promised to be out by.... yesterday. They're keeping it nice and quiet, and I'm glad of that, because whenever news is blurted out it tends to go poorly as there's a rush. And when something is rushed, it's almost-always a shoddy job.

Like codename: Titan, they're playing their cards close to their chest. Let sleeping dogs lie, because these ones will bite you in the backside if you rouse them from their slumber too early.
I hope not soon. I don't want half-arsed models to look at.

I wish the model creators took their time and did every model to perfection, even the Horde ones. So, I'm guessing 2013 autumn or 2014. :)
New race models? I didn't expect blizz to make them so soon after just releasing this expansion.

I'm so excited nvliuehviu

On a purely practical note, any character with only half an !@#$ would have great difficulty in standing up.

Or in other words: Please shut up about this annoying topic already !
Actually... the development team is working on new character models for the vanilla races. Unfortunately, we don't have an estimate yet on when they'll be available.

I can't wait to see what the next iteration of the Kaldorei models is going to be! I hope they'll finally return to the amazon-like statures they had back in Warcraft III, unlike World of Warcraft.

Because people keep being impatience, how else would you shut up the same people asking the same thing over and over again?

Are the races of TBC included in this?

That's impossible. It won't be long until another "New race models" thread appears.

I'll give it another year before we start getting "OMG Worgen/Goblins need updates" as well.

Hey, I've said Worgen need updates for years, that clearly haven't happened...

Or just not being walking glitches.

Well at least they're working on them. I hope the new models will be fantastic, I expect nothing less from Blizzard. Oh and don't nerf orc shoulders please :D It drove me crazy when you did it last time!

Some time ago in a dev Q&A ,Blizz said that the TBC races will also be updated,but probably done last since they are newer then the vanilla ones. So its safe to assume that TBC races will also be included in this update ,right ?
