World of Warcraft: New Orc Female Model

So I'm gathering we're going to see one of these about once a month.  Does that give anyone else a sinking feeling that Warlords is going to take a looooooooong time to get here?  They've done dwarves, undead, gnomes, male tauren, female human, and now orcs.  So that leaves......... like 10 more new models they'll have to give us a preview of, before the expansion will come out?  OMG it's going to be like a whole year before Warlords comes out?!  Uuuuuuuuugh!  Noooooooooooo!

Alright, whiny tantrums aside, here is the new orc female:





I don't really have a ton to say about this, orcs have never been my favorite race and I don't play one.

That being said, this model is, like the others we have seen so far, a VAST improvement.  Again, it amazes me how much just adding some shading to the texture on the model makes it look so much better.  Her skeleton structure is getting an improvement, too.  Her shoulders have always been positioned too far back, and her back has that weird inward curve that doesn't make much sense.  I guess she's had scoliosis all these years?
Anyway, I like this, I no longer look at that race and /facepalm.  Who knows, I might actually play one of these and finally make a shaman!
Can we all take a moment to also notice that her underwear looks a LOT better.  No more torn undies for her!  Finally made a trip to an actual tailor for her underwear instead of slapping on the first animal hide that got into her possession.
