Ah, wonderful work Samuli! I think I've seen this (or something like it) over at the Wargames Foundry site and was sorely tempted to pick it up. I love his saw beard and this boney shoulderblades coming through the Santa costume. He looks like he should be in a snow-globe with black ash!
A well-earned 5 points. Well done and welcome back Samuli!

From SamuliS - Citadel Chaos Santa (5 points)
In a bid to once again grab the lead for a fleeting few hours I have prepared a quick entry that should see me open my point tally and be the first one to post! (Sorry Samuli, I bumped you on that one. ed) So what I needed was a simple mini which would only require a few different shades to make it a speedy entry.
Going through my lead pile I came upon a box with an assortment of old school Citadel miniatures and remembered I had once bought the Chaos Santa (who is totally not a chaos warrior in disguise) sculpted by the Perry twins sometime in the mid 80s. With me coming from the land of Santa Claus and the miniatures being pretty much the same age as I am, I figured it would be the perfect first entry. I had originally planned on painting this and putting it inside a see through Christmas tree ornament, but that never really worked out as I had planned.
A fairly simple paintjob with only a couple of shades that were washed and then highlighted twice before slopping on some snow flock. The PVA is still drying, but I declare this a finished mini now! The better half wasn't too happy about the early morning alarm clock episode followed by borrowing her hairdryer to speed up painting. But hopefully all will be sorted as I'm free to make breakfast after posting this :)
