Taurens look bad in all Pally Gear? Sunwalker Dezco would like to say hello. http://www.wowhead.com/npc=64853#
Yea, i think Dezco looks horrendous. Whilst he might be on the better end of a bad lot of terrible looking sunwalkers, the t6 red recolour ends up with him having huge shoulders join with his head to form some abomination of a shape. Not only this, but wtf is that racoon thing he has on his chest and back? Anyone know?
Additionally, and most importantly, the t6 paladin set was meant to be the most divine of the tiers; i.e. it is meant to be the one someone would transmog if they were wanting to be a defendor of the holy light (a paladin) and not a druid of the sun (a sunwalker). The shoulder item of this tier is even radiating holy light...that says it all. So from this perspective, his gear not only looks awkward, but it doesn't make much lore sense, since sunwalkers don't use/connect to the holy light, but instead the sun. However, I do have the mace he uses and it is one that I like quite a lot. I don't know if this is for sunwalkers, but I think it is a great paladin item. Furthermore, I am also not a fan of the shield Dezco has; where does the fluro blue come from? Doesn't match his set at all...
If blizzard wants to make some true sunwalkers, they need to revert to a leather-looking style, as that is after all what druids of the sun wear. The items the Dawnchaser Brave NPCs surrounding Dezco are wearing look much better suited for a 'sunwalker' however perhaps they could have brown/yellow/red colour theme instead of green? Also even Nala is wearing an outfit that would be more of a true reflection of a sunwalker.
Also just a note; oversized weapons =/= cool necessarily. For me, they are horribly daggy. Paladins are not meant to be like warriors that just hit things and tear through enemies. They are meant to have intelligence. Even sun druids are meant to be intelligent as they have learned to harness the power of the sun; not just pick up a weapon and start hammering away. So in this regard, female tauren > male tauren (see below for more discussion) as males look too brutish and awkward for this class (even more so if you rolled male tauren priest) when compared to the more refined blood elves and humans.

May I ask which planet you are on? You must be on Argus, certainly not Azeroth, or any other ones tauren sunwalkers are found on. Have you seen the tauren sunwalker kodo? It looks like some 2 year old has grabed a paint brush and 3 pots of purple, red and yellow paint and just sploshed some of each all over a poor kodo. It looks horrendous - possibly the 2nd worst look in the game, behind a tauren sunwalker in judgement armour with the HOOD. THAT makes me shudder.

Male Tauren look bad in most pally tier. Go female Tauren.
For me, female tauren > male tauren, simply because weapons are not so oversized - but still large - and also their animations are much better and their shoulders don't form one with thier head. They also don't have a tiny face with little beady eyes that pokes out from the hulking ugly mass behind it. They are not hunched, and are more refined than their male counterparts.
Oh, and don't forget, the first to bring you the power of the sun in the form of sunwalkers was a female... Aponi Brightmane. And guess what she was wearing? Leather... and still is to this day, even in her new role as a sunwalker/paladin. So perhaps some leather-themed plate armour for sunwalkers is much needed (see Dawnchaser Brave NPCs).

Well, transmogrification and aesthetics in terms of outfits in wow are basically totally subjective. So if you are offended, well tough, because at the end of the day there will be people who like what you wear and people who loathe it. Transmogrification, especially for RP realms, especially requires the gift of choosing things that more people will like you for than dislike you for.
Considering you are wearing similar things to Dezco, I would have to say I am not a fan. But, at the end of the day, what you wear is your choice and up to your taste of fashion. So ultimately, pick something that you are happy wearing, but something that you won't get /rofled or /loled at for.
