You get very generic faces from the default mesh. You can build your own meshes and use them for generating new heads, but it quite a lengthy and complex process.
As long as you tweak them abit and make new textures for them, it's ok I suppose for background characters. I wouldn't use them for any main charcater though, because they totally lack any character whatsoever.
If you need a LOT of different heads for a project, then I'm sure it's a very tempting software.
