kypto, Tauren hunters in WoW start off using guns as default. And if anyone's going to claim that WoW's lore is "wrong", Blizzard is the authority and whatever they say is canon, no matter which game of the franchise it is.
Also, great model. If you ever update it though, could you possibly fix the attachment points? I haven't tested the other ones, but anything that's applied to this model's origin ends up on top of its head. I'm pretty sure that means auras and buffs would do the same. (I can't believe no one's mentioned this.)
