Worgen Model Update

General
Hi,

For the longest time now alot of us have been asking for updated Worgen models, we have been told several times now that they are coming, last time during Q/A during blizzcon 2017, that they where not coming at 8.0 launch but later.

There was also an interview with a youtuber called Tradechat that asked the same question, but then the answere was all of the focus was on allied races.

Is there any more information that you guys can share with us worgen fans out there?
we just want a timefram, is it within this expansion or later?

If possible i would love to see a posture fix like the orcs got so we can stand straight.

Heres a picture if you guys need some new inspiration

Pick one pls
Imagine them showing new models at Blizzcon. Worgen deserve it's own panel :S
would love to see white fur too, greymane style
I lost all hope for them when they promised they'd come at the end of WoD
That will be the big announcment for WoW at Blizzcon this year. New Worgen and Goblin models.
Certainly hope it'll come soon. Worgen, especially the female, is completely broken and needs a total overhaul. Not only does it look ugly as sin even when it works, but most of the time it doesn't work. Limbs will be misaligned, arms will detach from the body, etc.

Goblin is the oldest model but other than facial animation it's pretty much fine.

Pandaren could use an overhaul as well, although on a smaller scale. The males look alright, but the females only have one face. Could use some more.

Well, I don't play females so I don't know but there are issues with males. 3d geosets for feet don't even touch the feet for some armors. Weapon for few years now is held way too far back. This makes some fist weapons clip with the hand and stick out wierdly. Swords are held way too far from the guard.

Goblins could also use toes. Now they are the only race in the game that has toes only painted on. Also both races need updated textures. They are the only ones that use 512x512, all other ones use 1024x512 textures. Body texture is the same size as 512 by 512 but it has much more detailed face on a sperate block of 512x512.

Pandarens were the first ones to use facial animaions and new high res textures. They are fine. But could use face deformation. That's how you get differently shaped faces for the other races, each one has different deformations of nose, eyebrows, etc giving slightly different shape. Both male and female pnadaren lack this.
I think we're getting new models together with the worgen/goblin heritage armor.

But i bet worgens and goblins will get heritage armor last, so we got like 10 more years of waiting atleast.

This is still one of my favourite artwork of a worgen but ingame they still don't look like that.
