very good miniatures. i like your basing...have you used some epoxy material for the snow effect? i have always trouble with artifical snow (i use woodland scenics flocks), it looks ok when the glue is fresh, but when it dries, the snow turns translucent and non realistic (even with or without varnish)
about a constructive critic about your painting, try to draw highlights smoother, specially on round surfaces (arms or so)
nevertheless, they look very good

Arctorius Lensk, here is my tip for snow using woodland scenics...
Firstly here is the example...
and here is how you get it so bright...
paint on glue, add snow. Once dry, paint on white paint (slightly watered down) then add snow. The snow drys a very bright white.

GAH! MOLD LINES!!!!! Seriously, just take the time prior to painting to file/cut them all off. Nothing ruins a great paint job like seeing the mold lines on the mini. Just a little time before painting pays ENORMOUS dividends.
That being said, try blending your highlight in a little more (believe me, I know how time-consuming that can be). I notice that the highlights are better on the crux terminatus, so try a similar trick on the armor.
Still, good for tabletop.
