West Wind Distribution

We are pleased to announce that West Wind Productions has agreed to distribute Bombshell Miniatures and COUNTERBLAST™ products in the UK and EU markets. This will make it easier and less expensive for our European customers to order our products and have them shipped without incurring the dreaded Import Fees.

We are working hard to provide them with our entire range of miniatures so they will be able to manufacture and stock all of the same models we provide to our US-based customers. A selection of our previous releases are available in their web store now!

Kickstarter Fulfillment Update #5




FULFILLMENT PHASE 1 IS COMPLETE!


Vicky sent out the final remaining packages to the domestic and international backers that were receiving product from us last week. GALACTIC DOMINATION backers will be receiving their rewards packages with their regular rewards selections soon, the painted items will be shipped when the painting is completed.

FULFILLMENT PHASE 2 - WEST WIND


She is now collecting up the rewards items to send those packages to the UK for the backers who selected fulfillment from West Wind. We are also sending sets of masters for West Wind Productions to begin casting their own product for web store orders and distribution in the UK and EU. They have already posted a selection of our previous releases for Babes, Sidekicks and Epic Models in their web store.




Have a look at the models that all of you, our fantastic backers, have made possible through funding this project! All of these models are now available in our web store.




























I wanted to say thanks again to everyone who contributed, shared, and supported our project for COUNTERBLAST™ making the launch of our new game possible. Look forward to more releases coming soon from Bombshell Miniatures!

Fulfillment Update #4



PLASTIC PARTS DELIVERED!!!





On Tuesday afternoon UPS dropped off 9 boxes from GPI that had the plastic sprues for the GDF helmets. Over the next couple of days Vicky and I clipped enough of them apart to package them for fulfillment. The bins below contain approximately 200+ sprues each.













We now have ALL of the offered items from the Kickstarter project in hand and are proceeding to package them for shipping.

SHIPPING


See the SHIPPING REPORT HERE

If the chart shows a green box for your Order Number, that means we have shipped your rewards. White boxes have not yet shipped. If there is NOT an Order Number for you in the list, you need to email us at support@bombshellminis.com with a list of your rewards selections for your pledge amount. Only email us if you do not have an Order Number.




After an unexpected root canal and crown on Wednesday, Vicky resumed packing orders and running shipping labels to send the next wave of fulfillment packages out. On Friday we delivered another 50 packages to the post office. Next week another wave will be packed and shipped out.

It is anticipated that all of the packages, except the West Wind shipment and the Galactic Domination backer levels, will be shipped by the end of September.

WEST WIND / UK


We are assembling the shipment to go to West Wind for our UK / EU backers who selected that as a delivery option. We anticipate that the package will go out over the next week or so. There are other components that will go along with that for their regular stock so it will be a relatively large shipment.




Over the next few weeks we will begin soliciting COUNTERBLAST™ to additional distributors. Even if you backed the Kickstarter project, please ask your local retailers to look into carrying our line and support the range. We still have a whole rulebook full of faction models to release over the coming months.

Currently we supply to Warpath so retailers can order from there or they can contact us directly for a wholesale/retail discount at info@bombshellminis.com .

Thanks again for your patience! I know we are running about a month behind schedule from where we wanted to be at this point. I will post another update once we have completed shipping out the remaining packages.

Fulfillment Update 3




Vicky has processed another batch of rewards packages and our postal carrier just picked up the boxes five minutes ago. Some of you will be receive more COUNTERBLAST goodness in you mailboxes after the weekend.

News from GPI this week.

I received confirmation that GPI has, in fact, received the shipment of plastic helmet visor sprues from China earlier in the week and they are going through the the QC process for them. As soon as they make sure the parts are all fit to ship out they will notify me and I will pass the news on to you.

As soon as we receive the parts from GPI, the remaining rewards packages will begin shipment. We will also be packaging a certain amount of them to supply West Wind in the UK for fulfillment and distribution.
