Straight off, for the record- I like the new skaven. But I'm also a bit of a painter so what other models can I choose from if I start this army?

Very few and now not really alternatives.
Best alternatives are OLD GW models, all metal, only on ebay.
Then there are Black Tree Design http://www.blacktreedesign.com/europe/home.php?cat=2343 , but their design is far inferior (I only like the flamethrower).
Grenadier had 4 ones but they are currently OOP. Mirliton has the rights now and may some day rerelease them http://www.mirliton.it/ . Also 4 ratmen by Ral Partha.
Anyone else has no ratmen, as they are too GW specific, not even Gamezone, Rackham or West Wind.

There are only some single models
like this Rat Ogre by "Impact! Miniatures" (not released yet, pic 2)
or this single rat warrior by MSB Toys http://www.battlefield-berlin.de/shop/index.php?cat=WG892&product=MSB_RG001 .

There also is this fantastic bloodbowl team by Green Dog which seems currently unavailable (legal trouble?).
