Although we're using a term like "Babes" to describe the line, these characters are much more than just a label. The concept is something retro and nostalgic that is intended to evoke images of famous paintings like J. Howard Miller's "We Can Do It" and Rockwell's "Rosie the Riveter".

We have a fantastic list of classic character archetypes with a fresh take on the designs from the mind of concept artist Chris Walton for the core set as well as numerous stretch goals. Care is taken to size the figures so they are compatible with other models from the most popular manufacturers within the 28mm range of heroic sizes. Babes™ are cast in the finest lead-free pewter to assure as much of the detail of the original sculpt is preserved. All models are supplied unpainted and some assembly may be required.

Sculptor - Chad Hoverter is best known for his renditions of the critters in Mice and Mystics. He has some critters in the Bombshell range along with a couple of Babes and we are happy he has been able to help with this current project.

Artist - Chris Walton is probably best know for his iconic character designs on games like WARMACHINE® and HORDES® as well as designs for Z2 Inc, Forrest-Pruzan Creative, Sodapop Miniatures, Paizo Publishing LLC, Exato Game Studios, Reaper Miniatures, Antarctic Press, Atlantis Studios, Eos Press, and Scrambled Eggz Productions.

Artist - Mary Profitt knew as a child she wanted to be in the creative field and started painting and drawing at age three. During high school she won three Gold Key awards at the national level and went on to study fine arts in college. Being blessed with a natural talent she has done commission work in portrait oil painting, pencil drawings, and painting in acrylics, so miniature painting was a natural fit.

She's been painting miniatures for several years and loves bringing miniature characters to life.

We will charge shipping after the Kickstarter based on the actual costs. This will be collected via our pledge manager after the campaign ends. DO NOT INCLUDE ADDITIONAL FUNDS TO COVER YOUR POSTAGE PAYMENT IN YOUR PLEDGE AT THIS TIME!

Any funds collected through the KS system are reduced by 10% when KS takes out their fees. This means that any funds collected to cover postage are 10% less than what is actually needed to cover postage IF the postage rates do not increase between the time of billing and shipping. (Postal rates have increased on us during our projects at least once prior to fulfillment. In one case the rates increased twice!)

After the campaign ends, backers will be able to select their rewards via the pledge manager. Shipping costs will be calculated and collected at that time. You will also be able to select additional rewards options at that time if you wish.

Postage will be billed by region when backers make their choices via our pledge management system. All postage fees must be paid at that time before shipment can be completed. Rewards will be posted from the US to all backer's addresses.

Postage ESTIMATES by region: (Please note these are estimates only. Your actual shipping charge may be higher or lower depending on the type of shipping selected and your region.)

US $4.00 - $15.00 (1st Class or Priority Mail)

CAN / UK / EU $15.00 - $25.00

AU / NZ / ROW $15 - $30.

Bombshell Miniatures is not responsible for any customs duties, taxes or fees incurred as a result.

US rewards may be shipped via either USPS 1st Class or USPS Priority mail. All International Mail is shipped USPS 1st Class International mail.

Risks and challenges

Why return to Kickstarter? We have all of the models shown ready to go into production, but molding and mastering, and casting runs are expensive. It would take longer for us to raise the funds to put all of these models into production over time than if we ask for funds to make a collection of them at once. We want to get these models out to you as soon as possible, and Kickstarter can make that possible.

We have fulfilled seven prior Kickstarter campaigns and have experience with managing projects and handling production requirements. Bombshell Miniatures works with an exceptional print vendor providing only the highest quality digital printing technology when needed, and a molding and casting facility with over 50 years of resin and metal casting experience.

Delays may occur but every effort will be made to deliver your rewards in a timely manner with proven quality. We encourage you to examine our other projects as proof of our track record.
