Tauren ideas?
Tauren with big-ass scythe, to chop Centaur legs off in battle
Tauren with big horns, attachment points on those horns, and a set of simplistic corpse attachments of different races - i.e. enemies he impales on his horns
Unarmored Tauren with massive helmet, humanoid Stand and Walk animation, but Wolf's Walk Fast, Ready, and Attack animations - i.e. a savage, who runs on all four (as a nod to their Plainsrunning from WoW Alpha), rams enemies with his head and mauls them with his fists.

Defensive structure that is a big Barrens stone pillar with another rock balanced on top, surrounded by ropes. Attack animation drops the rock and destroys the pillar in explosion of dust (basically, a heavy-duty land mine)

There are some old warcraft 3 concept art pieces about taurens that could be great to translate to models:

@stein123, you are the man for dredging up some Samwise art. Don't forget this great WIP lost to time:
full


OP, also consider poking around the forum/concept art archives I've made of the Ominous Horizons total conversion mod; they had 4 factions planned, and one of the only ones they finished was the Tauren, so there's lots to look at:

(I particularly like the fem!Tauren concepts (Ardent is bae), but also the "Obsidian Pillar" thing they had going on for their towers)

I friggin love the plainstrider model from OH, i tried to fix it a bit to use, but a modern remake of all of those sweet models would be fantastic; also, i kinda peregrin every year to that old gallery to give a 5 stars to all those abandoned / lost meshes u______u
