Patch 4.2 Models - Bosses and Mounts!
Patch 4.2 added a fair amount of models to the game files, see the newest ones below!

PvP Mounts
Both Horde and Alliance got brand new PvP mounts, they seem to be a reward from the existing rated battlegrounds achievements. It's not very clear which achievement is required, Blizzard is probably still playing around with those:

Tarecgosa and Tarecgosa Whelp
Tarecgosa, the blue drake from the legendary staff questline got her own model. There's also a model named "TarecgosaWhelp" and I really want to believe that it is the Dragonwrath Whelpling rewarded by Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest - Guild Edition. There is no indication in the game files yet that it is indeed the reward, I will try to confirm that as soon as possible.

Malorne is also in the game files and got a pretty nice model. For more information check Malorne on Wowpedia

Fandral Staghelm + Fire Scorpion
Fandral's model and his Fire Scorpion forms have been added.

Lord Anthrycist - Lava Form
It looks like Lord Anthrycist's fight will have two phases, he's much more fiery in one of those.

Lava Spiders
Two sets of Lava Spiders models have been added in this patch and they look awesome.

Winged Lion Pet
Yes. Seriously. So much cuteness.

Fire Elemental - Kar
A new Fire Elemental "Kar" model appeared in this patch, not sure if it's just an updated trash mob model or a boss.

Ragnaros Revamped
Ragnaros has been slightly revamped and looks a lot less stupid than in the Patch 4.1 game files.

    o.O For the same reason it is wolves again for the horde. Stormwind and Orgrimmar are considered the "head" of each respective faction.

    This doesn't mean they can't do something a little more imaginative. Another scorpion for Horde (there's only one scorpion ever now) and a stag for Alliance?

    Wow @ those PVP mounts, Blizzard stepping up in the model design, well the races needs those, and they know it.

    Question. I haven't logged in a couple months, rated is guild only? A solo PVPer can't get these? ;/ Tell me thats not true.

    Change the horns around a little bit and Malorne looks just like the goat God in Zelda: Twilight Princess.

    If/when I resign up for WoW i'm gonna try my darnedest to get those wolf mounts. The horse mounts are cruddy in comparison. FOR THE HORDE!

(The Blademaster class, which was heavily influenced by the samurai, was one of the first classes/characters to display one of those standards.) It has nothing to do with "American flag-waving", but some historical referencing in a fantasy game.

    1/10 a'cause you got me to respond.
    you totally failed to see my point

    Didn't stop him from being one of the bossiest bosses since this game went live though.
    I always thought it was his hair, and that it was goofy on purpose as an homage to Heat Miser from The Year Without a Santa Claus.

    Also Lord Anthricyst Rhyolith is totally the Yellow Demon from the classic Megaman games.
