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.
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!

It would be nice to think about cyberpunk utopias, but somehow those just don't grip the popular imagination. Instead it's always overcast or raining, the sky is brocced, corporations own everything and everyone and surveillance is ubiquitous. There's money to be had, but barely enough to buy noodles unless you're connected...or willing to ignore corporate law.
Devo Ranks eats the *fancy* noodles every day. They have Skillz.
Click for more angles.
Hacking into a Public Service Panopticon? CHILD'S PLAY.
If you need muscle? Devo Knows A Guy. Or lady, really.
Don't worry, Dez! Those cameras are showing nothing but innocuous looped footage now.
No one pays the cleaners enough in the cyberpunk dystopian future.
I won't pretend to understand what kind of cyber-heist these three are conducting.
But you can be sure they have made Powerful Enemies, as well as enough credits to afford the FANCY noodles for the rest of the year!
Devo is a fun one. Gender-ambiguous and tech-savvy. Because cyberpunk is inextricable from the late 80s and early 90s, I gave Devo the most day-glo Nickelodeon counterculture wardrobe I could think of. Dez from Bombshell we have seen before, in the post-apocalyptic Radlands, as well as the little sniper from Crooked Dice.
The Public Service Panopticonnouncer was made from SD card placeholders and chunks of expired credit card, along with I think a vape component. The text, like much of the signage on the building, comes from a beer can label artfully chopped into pieces and rearranged into vaguely menacing advertisements. Also some sprue and all the camera-looking Bitz and Gunz in my Bitz Box.
I don't have any cyberpunk setting or games planned, but I can feel the itch growing. C&C welcome.
A warrior woman of the wastelands, the mohawked Dez is a formidable figure. Where does she even get hair color and makeup in the Irradiated Zones? She's not telling, other than to say "If it was easy, I'd send a man to do it." Also, she's a deadly shot with a wrist crossbow.
Here she is with a few of her pals (Wasteland Maelee, also Bombshell, and a Crooked Dice survivor).
More than a match for the average mutant horror.
and a credible threat even to above-average horrors!
This is from a collection of STL's I purchased through some Humble Bundle deal that popped up for $20. I couldn't resist the deal of like 38 minis for such a decent price that looked high quality. Only problem - I didn't have a printer. I ended up linking up with one who I found on Insta and wow - the dude is great to work with. I have a lot more of this frog theme to paint and I'm stoked if they all come out like this.
This is now my FAVORITE painted mini. I'll need to base him, but I need to do something really special for him. Any thoughts?
* Taking my time to layer up was the biggest test of patience, but what a payoff! The skin combo was VGC Goblin Skin and layered up with VGC Khaki and a little Buff added in. Looks like...well frog skin.
* The eyes I saved for last, but they have a slight cheat to them in that they have little spots where the pupils are. I didn't want to just lay white down and then dot the eye. Instead I used an offwhite and highlighted bright white around the edges and then dotted it. They have a great look.
* The backpack area has a lot of little details! I managed to pull off a distressing to the leather backpack that I'm super happy with. I did a fun color combo on the leather straps across the top with an orange/brown combo. Finally, the barrel at the bottom has a 4 color touch to it. I think using a little black was a bit too much, but overall it looks like a believable wood barrel.
* I went a bit heavy with the metal colors, but it all seemed to tie in well. I questioned making his medallion a copper color, but after looking at it, all of the magical items (except the scroll) seem to have a tie-in with Copper. It came out looking good.
* Not using washes as much and trying to darken the lines with ink or careful placement of deeper base colors worked really well.
* Getting the hang of my airbrush and priming. Not a fan of all the cleanup with an airbrush, but I certainly love the even paint it lays down, the fact I'm not wasting paint cans, and the amount of paint needed is minimal.
* If you look at his left eye (his actual left) it has a weird little spec in the middle of the eye ball. I somehow in layering ended up pulling the paint by adding another layer too soon and it left a divit. Had to do some careful painting over it, but it's still there - darn it!
* This guy took WAY more time than I'd like it to have. I think it's about 3 hours. Now, the outcome is great, but I think a bit of it was looking for my next color as I didn't plan the scheme ahead.
* Interesting how many layers it took for me to get an even coating on over the Badger primer. Where the white DR ink was, it grabbed the paint better, but I wasn't too happy with how many coats it took. 3 in most cases. 5 in others.
* The skin took a good deal of time to hit and I wasn't sure how to use the airbrush to do that, so I only primed, but would have liked to have green skinned him first.
The wins FAR outweigh the misses this time. I usually don't get to the end and smile at my work, but this little fella was not only fun to paint, but really enjoyable to look at after and just feel happy. Lots of work, but the outcome speaks for itself.
