|Chief Sayis' Warband, Blizzard did a wonderful job on this model!|
It turns out this boss is actually an entire war party called Salyis' Warband. The party is made up of several saurok (reptilian humanoids) who man two huge cannons on top of a kodo-like beast called a mushan named Galleon. The party is led by Chief Salyis (seen standing on Galleon's head).

Fire Shot: Saurok Skirmishers riding on Galleon's back fire flaming crossbow bolts at random players, inflicting 15,000 Fire damage.
Stomp: Galleon stomps the ground, inflicting 100,000 Physical damage to players within 100 yards and knocking them down for 3 sec.
Cannon Barrage: (this one you need to watch out for, ouch) Chief Salyis orders his minions to fire off eight powerful cannon blasts. Each blast inflicts 600,000 Fire damage to players within 10 yards and knocks them back.
Salyin Warmonger: Chief Salyis' Warmongers periodically jump down from Galleon's back to engage players. The Warmonger uses an ability called Impaling Pull to bring a distant target towards them and inflict 15,000 physical damage.

I got into a raid group last night that was able to kill him. We had a LOT of people there this time and it went much more smoothly. Here is the video of the kill. ~
