EDIT: Actually, I do quite like the guns. Nice and quirky.

Trying too hard to be Skaven "in space" and thus failing to be of much use for anything else. If it had been less blatant the bodies could have been used as a base for mutants or beastmen... but no, rat tails, paws and bad skaven heads.

wow tough crowd - personally I like them - they are ugly, mean scifi ratmen using cobbled together cyber/steam tech - I can picture them with paint on and looking the biz 8)

Agree 100%. Couldn't have put it better myself.

In fact, I think it is Mantic's biggest flaw. It's like miniatures-wise they are harking back to the really bad GW era around 1995, when GW were turning out really uninspired and uniformly boring (and boringly uniform) sculpts for most of their ranges. Not saying all Mantic sculpts are like that, but certainly a lot of them are. It's really really boring.

The teeth make the top two models ridiculously stupid too.

I like these space-muppets 8)
One of them could be gang leader of my Ratskins

I like the fact that the ones with the open mouths would never ever fit into the gasmasks as they would skewer their own jaws when shutting thier mouths.

I love the weaponry though, wish it could be purchased seperately, would make great xcom sonic weaponry :(.

Unfortunately they are all rather samey. The guns are so covered in gubbins that, if they are the only real difference, it's hard to tell the models apart. I know they want to make the most out of the kits by just adding new heads/arms, but they lose something in the process.
