Never thought I'd see Calvin and Hobbes on here. Makes the choice not a bit easier, though.

Splendid stuff, both.

Excellent entry Maledrakh, nice stripes! Very creative, I love that comic strip.

both great entries and hard to decide …

for Susie and the Snow Goons: Although the tiger looks like a Siberian tiger I would  suggest that a snow tiger (i.e a white tiger, a white variant of Bengal Tiger) might be more exotic!

Thank you all for your kind words :)

@Dr Mathias: Thank you, and right back at you. That is some seriously inspiring work. You have even managed to capture the mesmerizing eyes of Thulsa Doom. I love that movie :)

@argsilverson: all of the minis except snow goon #3 from the left are made by Reaper. The three remaining Snow Goons are "03296 Monstrous Snowmen", Hobbes is "03668 Tiger"  and the children are "50042 Townsfolk: Modern Children". The third child in the pack was used as Linus van Pelt in my round 4 Great Pumpkin piece. All are in metal and available from the Reapermini.com store. I made Susie's santa hat in plastic putty though.

The last snowman is Evil Snowman by Ral Partha Europe (from their Wicked Wonderland kickstarter last year). I do not know if it is available to buy or not.

The faces and eyes on the two Doom dudes with visible faces are fantastic, especially the dark-skinned guy. Possibly the best eyes I've seen on 28mm figures!

The Snow Goons entry is seriously inspired and hilarious, though. Love the whole thing!

Hobbes is not a White Tiger in the comic strip though so it would completely destroy the reference.

Both brilliant entries - so hard to choose.
