Not to mention some of the Trolls and NEs have their own facepaints/tattoos, so it would be interesting to see something implemented for the other races aswell, imo.
The Dwarves we play are the dwarves of Ironforge, not the Dark Iron, not the Wildhammer.
Just like we play Durotar dwarves, not Mag'har.
Durotar dwarves sound pretty hardcore.
Dark Iron and Wildhammer dwarves are in The Alliance proper, now. Their leaders help rule over Ironforge. A Mag'har is Warchief of The Horde. There's no reason any of these models shouldn't be available to the player.

Forsaken would be the easiest. Considering that "undeath" is not a race, but a condition. In addition, a large group of Forsaken in the lore are made up of high elves that fell when The Scourge swept through Lordearon and Quel'thalas. These individuals exist, but are not represented in-game.
Forsaken "sub race" could be undead High Elf. Of which models already exist in the form of blood elf death knight unique skins.
It gets challenging with the Draenei, who have several related species (Man'ari, Broken, Lost Ones). The one that makes the most sense would be The Broken, but the two models aren't even similar.
The Broken model would have to be fixed up, brought to today's graphic standards and rebuilt around the draenei "wire-frame" (they're currently on the Tauren, as the current Broken One/Lost One model actually predates The Burning Crusade) and the female model would have to be built from the ground up. That's a lot of work.
How about, instead of all that they just give everyone face-paint and tattoos and call it a day.
