Added all the new model pics they currently have available. I hope the Tauren one gets a bit more refined. Looks more like a dog to me.

And they're juggling the raid-size mechanics!

* Normal will now scale (!!)
* Heroic will now scale (!!)
* "Flex" is going away
* "Mythic" is the new hardest level for 20-man raids.

Woo hoo! We can get into scalable-normal and scalable-heroic raids!

So excited!
