According to the current Codex: Necron on page 17.

Twisted and ghoulish terrors of the night, the Flayed Ones advance before the Necron force, spreading fear like a plague before them. Stooped yet terrifying agile beast's from man's darkest nightmares, the Flayed Ones long flensing blades can strip the skin from their prey in seconds. Thin and wiry, they adorn themselves woth the still wet hides of their victims, leaving the skinned corpses to sow fear and confused amongst their enemies ranks.

Why did i quote this passage, well Nicholas Hadrian stated that the current Flayed ones look like they are wrapped in "Toilet Paper". I would consider that it would be hard to sculpt any Flayed One model that has flayed skin on it and does not look like "Toilet Paper".

Ultramarines are Pussies

Except Dark Angels, any chapter that sounds like a Death Metal Band can't be that bad.

Prepare for terminator 2 style sculpts to be designed and never see the light of day due to law suits. Though I'm totally fine with things like this:

I agree with everything everyone has said in my defense, Personally I have no plans on starting a Necron army, i'm imperial all the way, I just like facing down opponets with really cool models, really fun rules and really cool fluff.

And on an aside, Achaylus, there's no need to be rude.

Veiw my Blood Ravens army in army showcase!

Do you ever go into a fight thinking there's no point giving my best, I'll get another chance later? We only ever get one shot, Marlin. Life is one shot. Making it count is all that matters.

*googles flayed ones*

Well, I'm not sleeping tonight then, am I.

I don't think the new ones look that bad though. Posed kinda weird.

I've never seen impossible as a reason not to try.
