I would really love taurens, of both genders, to have "no-caveman" option and stand tall and pround. Also removing hump would solve alot of armor problems.
Current model seems to have spine of hydralisk.
They are not. Obviously, if you wish to play a teenage human female, I guess they are. Teenage girls usually have quite small hips.
Possibly draenei. I can't really imagine how they could turn out. Any other race I can only imagine as an improvement. I think I read somewhere that the dwarf models look awesome according to Blizzard btw. I don't like them saying that, but hey, either way it is quite likely an improvement to what we have now.

I have a sneaking suspicion that human males aren't going to turn out the way most people expect or want them to. I think right now a lot of players have such a suspense of disbelief when looking at their low-fidelity human avatars, their imagination paints a picture of what they really want them to look like, without realizing that Blizzard has quite a stylized approach for their depiction of humans. The whole deliberate neck tumor thing being one of them.
I have a feeling gnome players will be disappointed. Theirs is the vanilla model which simply has the least room to work with, being so compact. The changes won't be as glaring or polished as some of the others IMO.
Top 5 guesses in order of likelihood:
1. Dwarves. I don't know why but I feel like dwarves will be messed up.
Professional glass cannon since 2004. I live and die a mage.
One thing I am concerned about is our community's expectations of the new models. A lot of players are expecting a complete overhaul of the models, like fixing the undead hunches all the Horde characters have, or something really drastic. I am calling it now: instead of completely redoing the models, what they will release are models that follow the same exact build as what they are now, but with just more lively animations, and larger polygon count. doing so avoids them having to redo all the individual model/skeletons that the armor sets out there.
with that being said, they can't really "mess up" the old races, since the basics are already there.
Mmm, concerned about the Forsaken. The current model is so ugly but do I want them to completely change it? Hard to even know what I want them to do with it.
Don't know why you'd worry about male dwarf. All they need is more polys, animations and higher res. I love the male dwarf model.
on another note, i think forsaken should have tattered robes for cloth users. cant be that hard to use a template and have holes appear near the edges of a robe.and ffs, i hope my character can still be missing his jaw.

Forsaken has alot of potential for improvement, but it could end up looking even worse.
As an orc, I'm hoping for something in between Thrall's model and Garrosh's 5.4 model. I don't necessarily want to be as roided out and hunched like Garrosh, but I don't want my back to be as straight as Thrall's. And please, please have animated hair and facial hair. I want my enormous braided goatee to bounce around.
My tauren and blood elf alts wouldn't mind some love either. I like my tauren's hump, so I hope they keep that, but the mane and fur in general could be a lot better. A more expressive face wouldn't hurt either. My blood elf looks okay as is, but I think his proportions are a little off. Blood elves should be slimmer, in my opinion.
