Over the course of the campaign I will be working on the rest of the initial set of sculpts to give you a bit of an inside look at how I produce models for Bombshell. Here are a few more looks at the completed minis I finished at the time of launch.






On Saturday Sept. 24 at 3PM CDT / 1PM PDT I will be taking you through a back-stage tour at the mid-point of the Babes3 Kickstarter project via Google Hangouts. Be there for an inside look at the sculpts, concept art, stretch goals, and more!

Thanks again for all of your terrific support, and for getting the word out to the painting and gaming community. We have said it many times, and it is always true, none of what we do, can we do without you.  :)

KritterKins Update 9

As you can see we are a couple of weeks into September and we’ve shipped a handful of packages for the items that have been completed so far. What we didn’t account for was how hot it would be in the afternoons and how that would affect our casting progress. The resin tends to cure faster, forcing us to run smaller batches of molds at a time.

Tracking our progress, we are a little over half way to completing all of the production castings.

  • Lady Sakura and Jonsey have been mastered
  • Naito production castings are in progress
  • Flint, Coco, and Managara will be mastered next

Once the original sculpts are molded, a set of blue resin masters are cast, usually about six of each part. These resin masters are used to make sets of production molds, usually a dozen or so, in order to make batches of production castings at a time.

We restocked on supplies Thursday and have been making more molds, cleaning masters, and casting production runs.

Kero is just about wrapped up and the rest of the molds for Naito are going into production today.

Vicky has been hard at work cycling through trays of production molds to get all of the KritterKins wrapped up. This has allowed me to focus on sculpting again, although I still handle all of the mold-making.

Currently the schedule will have us wrapping up the casting around mid-October. As it cools off here, and we have fresh materials to work with, production should go as planned.

Thanks again for all your patience and support! We are looking forward to getting your KirtterKins to you as soon as possible!
