[4th] Ye Olde Inn Christmas 2015 Exchange

Back in 2013, we organized a cool mini exchange event for Christmas. The rules were simple:
Each forum member interested in participating paints a model, and sends it to a randomly drawn member as a gift. Only you will know who you're sending to so keep it as a surprise. In return you should also be receiving a gift from another forum member.
This year, the traditional Christmas exchange is organised by Tasoe !

1. People sign up here and I collect the names/addresses up via pm until the end of September.
2. I make a draw so each participant has someone to send to and someone (other) to receive from. (Ideally a non-participant can make the draw for me as I want my sender to be a surprise).
3. People paint something for their recipient, and send it by the end of November.
4. People receive their gift in December and post pictures of them.

1. Participants have to PAINT a heroquest figure.
2. Participants are NOT to reveal their recipient or their sender, until everyone has received their figure.
3. Participants are expected to commit to this. If they can't do for certain, then they shouldn't sign up.

1. Regarding rule 1, I say that the painting part is mandatory. If someone wants to convert something as well it is allowed of course, but the finished result should be painted up.
2. Don't feel like you have to paint something exquisite and that if you are not that good then you shouldn't join in. It's a fun thing and the level of the painted figures is irrelevant. Just paint however you can. It's always been that way, you can read the comments of the previous exchanges.
3. If you finish your figure way earlier than the deadline, hold on to it and send it near the end of November. In any case, please DO NOT post any photo of a received figure before November 30.
4. It's customary to paint your name under the base of the figure you're sending.

Here is an overview of all the Received List from the previous exchange (2013):

I don't need to say more. This figure speaks for itself.
I thank the person who sent it to me, maybe you guys could guess who it is.

And it is...

An ice gremlin santa! Very fitting! And he's got a reindeer, too! I love how he made the antlers out of a jawbone :skeleton: :mrgreen: 
Also like the dog, where is this figure from?
Moreover, with the greenfaced Santa and the dog in costume, I think there is a Grinch reference.
The translucent ice staff is magnificent (one piece broke, but I think I can easily fix it).
Thank you very much!
