    Thrall- I think needs a new hairstyle xD But I love how they merged his shaman dress with the old armor. Also glad to see they kept him straight backed like he is meant to be.
    Durotan- I really hope we get some helm or cloak or something that lets us have a wolf pelt like that!
    Grom- Angry looking, skulls and spikes. Expectations satisfied.
    Velen- Epic Beard. Expectations satisfied. (Though in the novels they describe his skin as being white standing out against all the other draenei.. that's nit picking though.)
    Blackhand- Who needs a neck when you have fire?

    Everything looks good but Thrall...I mean come on! That haircut god it looks horrible. He should just go back to wearing FULL doomhammer armor not half and half. I mean seriously its about time! But the haircut is just horrible!

    Love the new Thrall model. He looks like an older version of himself from "Lord of The Clans," game.

    Velen is how the ugly Draenei males should look. I still wouldn't play one, but at least they won't be fatties that walk like they shit themselves.

    Why do you call it beta?

    It's a closed F&F Alpha.

    Thrall is our Thrall, he was born on Azeroth after the fel taint was a thing. There is no Draenor Thrall equivalent because he's likely yet to even be conceived.

    Depending on how many years have passed he technically could be a newborn, as he was born nearing the midpoint of the second war. Or his parents could've been extra busy baby making as they weren't off being exiled to alterac, so he might even have an alternate brother or sister that exists in alternate Draenor.

    ...or Garrosh, coming from our timeline, could've simply killed alternate Thrall as soon as he was born because of his experience with Thrall here. Probably what I'd do if I were him, just in case.

    Awesome pics. Great size. Look thick. Solid. Tight. Keep us all posted on your continued progress with any new progress pics or vid clips. Show us what you got man. Wanna see how freakin' huge, solid, thick and tight orcs can get. Thanks for the motivation.

    The only problem i have with this models: Thralls eyes should be blue, not Durotans. Also the ponytail is a bit weird.

    I see Thrall traded in his sandals for mud-stomping, shit-kickers! Also, wtb his coat!

    All of those new models look badass. SO much attitude and testosterone coming from this expansion, I'm loving in. WoW is getting it's balls back.

    Keep up the good work MMO-Champ peeps.

    Blackhand kinda reminds me of Deathwing if Deathwing had a orc form..

    wish they got rid of that awful necklace Thrall has.. or make it smaller so it actually is a necklace and not an ungly looking shoulder thing.
    Also, I'd love a transmog of the wolf hood as we had that hat from shadowphaan! <3

    They all look very good, but I have to nitpick a little:

    -Did Thrall really lose so much hair in the last months/year?
    -I was hoping Grom (and Durotan) didn't have such a noticable hunch, but at least I won't be sad when my orcs also have one. Also, Grom was very young back in the day (it is said in "Rise of the Horde"), yet he looks older than Thrall and Durotan. EDIT: Grom was also supposed to look thin and have a black jaw.
    -Why is Blackhand the Deathwing version of Orcs?

    I like that they added Gollum
    nice LotR reference. But he needs to eat fish and have a ring.
