So... These are our new Ice Warriors.

I suppose they're not as hideously redesigned as the Silurians, but I'm not terribly impressed. Other than upgrading the quality of the suit material, some better makeup around the face, and not hiring one actor 2 feet shorter than all the others and giving him a comically oversized helmet, there was absolutely nothing wrong with the original design. The Troughton and Pertwee era Ice Warriors actually looked alien, whereas these guys just look like another generic humanoid wearing cheesy Skyrim armor.

EDIT: Or as my wife commented, it looks like he's wearing a snake-skin onesie that needs changing.
