They're really fragile for the points. Guardsmen with Carapace Armour drop like flies to any of the high RoF AP4 anti-infantry guns (Heavy Bolters, Autocannons, Gauss Blasters - those kind of guns). Inexperienced/less competent Skitarii players can also end up opening themselves up with the downsides of a Doctrina Imperative - sure, they go to BS7, but WS1 (maybe 2? Kind of irrelevant either way) is a pretty significant debuff if you're in a position to take advantage of it.

Their Battle Servitors, the Grav Cannon/2-shot Plasma Cannon dudes, are really slow. They have a huge damage output, but I've seen games where they've done nothing due to being out-deployed or out-maneuvered.
