Warlords of Draenor page updated with new gnome, tauren models

The official Warlords of Draenor web site has had two new additions -- both the female gnome and male tauren 3D models have been added to the page. The male tauren was showcased last month in an edition of Artcraft that primarily featured the animation of the model, including expressions, speech and movement. In all of the emotive cheering, laughing, dancing, and speech, there wasn't exactly a lot of menacing expression -- which is why I'm happy to see the new screenshots added to the site as well as the 3D model.

As for the female gnome, we saw her briefly at BlizzCon, but she was never actually featured in an Artcraft of her own. I have to say the female gnome update is one of my favorites so far -- the current gnome model, while adorable, doesn't quite capture the sheer range of expressiveness like the new model does. Although the additions are a definite bonus to the Warlords of Draenor website, I hope we see more of them soon -- we've had a lot of Artcraft content featuring models in progress, I'd like to see more of them in action. For both female gnome and male tauren, be sure to take a look at the official Warlords of Draenor web site -- and for more of the new character models, check out our compilation gallery below.

Compare new and old female gnome model animations

Though we saw some brief previews at BlizzCon -- and detailed Artcraft posts on certain races since -- we're still waiting on the official unveil for many of the updated character models coming in Warlords of Draenor. But for those of us who can't stand to wait any longer, Wowhead's model viewer offers previews of female and male gnomes, female and male orcs, female and male dwarves, and male tauren.

But if you're particularly interested in gnomes, like I am, you'll be especially interested in this video preview of the updated female gnome model complete with animations and emotes. Compared side by side, the new animations -- especially the facial animations, which bring a lot of life and personality to the character -- are pretty stunning. Keep your eyes open for more videos from Wowhead -- and more Artcraft posts from Blizzard featuring the remaining races.
