We've got a few pictures from last night's playtest of Hostile Takeover.

If you enjoyed last year's game, How the West Was Eaten, then Hostile Takeover will be right up your alley.

Sorry, there's no church to burn down this time…  <_<

Those the Bulldogs?

 

Great looking board. Love the diamond plate floors.

 

Those are indeed the Bulldogs.  :wub:

 

Thanks, Brad has been working very hard putting the ship together and there's going to be a second one too. :ik_oops:

The diamond plate floors are (iirc) Hirstarts.

This game is one of my primary sadnesses for missing the con this year. I had such a blast at y'all's table last year, and the concept for this game--the flying back and forth between ships--sounds like loads of fun (and rife with opportunity for some shenanigans, even without a church). The ship looks great, too. Can't wait for more pics!

This next squad was inspired by the Terminator movies (we assume the sculpts were as well).  These combat drones only have one mission: destroy the opposing units as quickly as possible.  There weapon is pretty good at cutting through armor and, when they are shot down, they have a chance to self repair and get back up the next turn.

Finally, here is a sample panel from one of the space ships.  Dan created the etching file from Brad's sketches.  We found out that if we spray paint the MDF before etching, we can get a finished product off the machine.  We are looking at ways to make building kits out of these tiles.  We got the mottled effect by using 2 different spray paints at different intensitites.  We were sure if it would translate to 28mm scale but are happy with the results.  The only thing we will be changing up is making some additional resin features to make the tiles pop out.

Why do resin? Wouldn't an overlay done in a thinner material cut on the laser work just as well? I'm intrigued by this concept as well. My issue with most "starship tiles" are that they always have these huge hallways like your in a space station and often I want to create something smaller like the classic scout ship from Traveller.

We will do overlays when appropriate. When we would do resin is when the piece has a rounded or organic look to it - like the lights shown on this tile. I love the creativity of MDF kits. What I don't love is when these kits try to emulate a rounded or uneven feature. I think taking the best qualities of both rain and MDF will make both shine even more.

 

Or I'm on crack....

      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

      Hey its buc. I have run games of Rangers of Shadowdeep at Reapercon and the Reaper online conventions. Is there enough interest for me to run Rangers of Shadowdeep at Reapercon in person this year? Would it be better to put my effort into Stargrave and or Frostgrave?

      I was considering running a game at Reapercon this year (assuming it happens). Is there interest in Stargrave as a convention event? Are other people planning on running the game at the convention?

      This one was for a facebook competition about color. The rules were, basically, don't worry about anything else but color. Do something different with color. I started with the idea of a dress palette of blue, teal, purple, and magenta. Once I had those colors in place, it was a matter of incorporating them in different areas of the model. I went with cotton candy roses and a galaxy print on the wings. The galaxy was a matter of stippling the dress colors (plus a bit of white) back and forth until the effect was convincing. Then I masked the body of the model and flicked a stiff brush at the wings to make star patterns. I then went back to the dress colors and stippling to blend them in a bit. This was a blast to paint, because I've never really done anything like this before.
