Testing it right now and yeah I would mind to see these snowflakes ingame for christmas. Would suit the snowy parts of TMW anyday too, I think.

Here are some examples of hexagonal snowflakes: Snowflake imagry
Why not just deformed spheres? I think that works better. First of all heavy with snowfall snowflakes consist of multiple small flakes that are clustered... right? Second, camera-aligned hexagons are pretty flat 'n dull. Sphere-like flakes can be shaded.
