  1. We are very excited to be able to come back and participate at ReaperCon again this year! There are a ton of new releases that will be in-stock at the show and a couple of other special items. Bombshell Miniatures presents the 2021 Golden Maelee Award. This is a Sponsored Award section of the annual Reaper Master Series Open Painting Contest. All entries will be awarded a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Bombshell Dog Tag depending on the level of painting and presentation of each entry. The brand new, larger, Golden Maelee trophies will be awarded to the top three paint jobs (Gold, Silver, and Bronze) depending on the number of entries. Entries will need to feature at least one or more Bombshell Miniatures as the prominent subject. This can be anything from Babes, Sidekicks, KritterKins, to robots, or busts. Each entry will be judged on its own merit of painting execution, presentation, and skill. Entries from artists who have been professionally commissioned by Bombshell Miniatures are ineligible for the Golden Maelee Trophy at this time, they may still receive Dog Tag awards. BADGE RIBBONS We have some new ribbons. Come by our booth and receive our Bombshell ribbon for your visit. You may receive one of the other themed ribbons depending on your purchase. THE RESIN VAT This year we will be offering seconds and mis-cast resin parts for sale by weight. Just scoop out what you want and we'll weigh it at check-out. Although these castings didn't pass muster, you may find a gem that is just right for that conversion or terrain project down the line. COUNTERBLAST FOR SAVAGE WORLDS Over the past year we have been working on creating a setting book of our Counterblast game for the Savage Worlds RPG. Come by our booth and get the details to sit in on a couple of impromptu RPG preview sessions during the con. There may even be freebies involved! We are super excited to visit with all of you again and we're looking forward to see what you've been painting! Patrick & Vicky

  9. Yes - there will be Sidekicks in all of the regular swag bags. Five of them will be gold randomly distributed. Yes - you'll get to keep the Golden Sidekicks. You just need to present your ticket with the number to claim your Mystery Box.
  10. Bombshell Miniatures has seeded the ReaperCon Swag Bags with some rare critters! In five of the randomly selected swag bags will be a Golden Sidekick. If you receive one of these rare treasures, bring the accompanying card to the Bombshell booth and choose your Mystery Box prize! Even if your Sidekick isn't gold, the cat and dinosaur Sidekicks are out of production and no longer available for sale. This will be your only opportunity to receive these particular Bombshell Sidekicks. Not going to ReaperCon but are planning to order a swag bag online? If you receive a Golden Sidekick, just email us your winning ticket number and we'll be happy to ship your Mystery Box to you! Send your info to --> [email protected]

  16. Production Update 4 WIP WEDNESDAY Hey all! It has been a rough start to the new year with the Bomb Squad being pulled in every different direction. But we are all back on track now. So, I have some good news and some bad news. Custom dictates I deliver the bad news first. THE BAD NEWS Today is February 1st and the remaining three sculpts are still not done. This has a little to do with shuffling some scheduling around, and a lot do with handling outside client work. THE GOOD NEWS The pledge manager will remain open on your web store account until you place your order. So, if you are holding out to see the final sculpts before placing your order for your rewards, nothing will change. We will begin processing orders and shipping rewards for those who we can fulfill. This will get a jump on things well before our posted estimated delivery date of June 2017. In the interim, here are a few pics of what is going on at the moment. Anugrah work-in-progress Master castings for approval. Production castings on the way. Bz-R printed by Trenchworx ready to go to mold. Officer Chase painting in progress by Mary Profitt Medieval Maelee painting in progress by Mary Profitt Operative Haley painting in progress by Mary Profitt Anvalla the Forgemaiden painting in progress by Mary Profitt More pics to come as soon as we can post them! Our big push is to get all of this wrapped up to take to AdeptiCon and we hope to see some of you there. Thanks for sticking in there with us! --Patrick

Bz-R bot is off to the printer and we should have the pieces back ready for mastering in a couple of weeks. These are the remaining sculpts for the project ready to go!

Shaeldaryth, Anugrah the Oracle, and Ellie If I can manage to get the sculpts done and out to production by the end of January we should have all of the production castings back in time to wrap up fulfillment before AdeptiCon.

  20. Hi all! I know the update is late in coming and we are working on organizing a time to get the surveys and details out about the B3 pledge manager. Both Vicky and I are working behind the scenes to get Bombshell organized again after clearing out the KritterKins project. We will do our best to get you info as soon as possible.
  21. Hi all - thanks for hanging in there over the past couple of weeks as we waited for Kickstarter to complete payment processing. We received notification that the funds are being transferred and we can begin putting the existing sculpts into production! FUNDING REPORT Kickstarter will be transferring $22,861.66 from 452 backers to create 10 new Babes, three new Sidekicks, and a Forge Set. PRODUCTION Sculpts ready for molding The completed sculpts will be molded and resin masters shipped out for production in November. Sculpts in progress Sculpting will resume and updates will be posted here with work-in-progress for the remaining pieces that were unlocked. PLEDGE MANAGEMENT Kickstarter surveys will be going out soon to collect your email address so we can set up your pledge amounts in the web store. Once your account info has been updated, you will be able to access the web store to select your rewards items and pay for your shipping at that time. We understand that we are deep in the fourth quarter of 2016 and the holidays are looming. With that in mind, pledge management will be open through the end of January to allow you to select your rewards and choose any additional items you may like to add on. Thanks so much for your support and enthusiasm for our work. It means a great deal that you have all stuck with us as the Kickstarter pool gets more and more crowded. Hopefully we can continue to create excellent models for your enjoyment! We look forward to seeing many of you at ReaperCon this week! --Patrick
