Where to Find Gamma World Miniatures: Humanoids & Miscellany

This article is part of a series in which we point readers to good sources of Gamma World miniatures to represent their PCs.  For the rest of the series, click the Article Series menu item on the menu bar up top.  Always be sure to check with the manufacturer before buying if you are unsure about scale.

So, we’ve covered quite a few of the odd origins so far, but we haven’t pointed you to good sources of humanoid minis yet.  Not explicitly, anyway.  And let’s face it, a whole lot of the origins can be represented by humanoid minis.  I’d recommend exploring any of the manufacturers we’ve mentioned already; we’ve got you started with some good choices below.  Also, there are some weapons links for you mini modifiers out there, and finally, some good sources for Gamma World terrain.  Let’s do this!

 

 

 

Humanoids

  • Sci-fi lineHeresy Miniatures The Heresy minis are usually multi-part, meaning there is some gluing and assembly involved.  Scroll down to find the “Trenchcoat Warriors,” as they are some of my favorite in this line.  I think they’re perfect for Gamma World; two of them are the pictures in this post.
  • Post-Apocalyptic line, Science Fiction line – Fenryll Miniatures If you get this page in French, there’s a tiny British flag at the top to switch to English.
  • Pulp City Miniatures (most any)Pulp City Miniatures They even have a mini called “Nuke” who would be a perfect Radioactive.
  • Chaos Space Marines, Space Marines, Witch Hunters, Dark Eldar, and many more… – Games Workshop There’s really too much that would work from the Warhammer 40k line for me to list here.  Just head over to their site and shop around; click “armies” on the left menu bar.  Many of the really good Gamma World-ish minis are in the “Troops” sections.  As a side note, DON’T get sticker shock.  People sell their Warhammer 40k armies on ebay all the time.  You don’t need to buy a $35 army pack to get the one mini you want.  And the bonus is, the ebay mini you get will most likely be already painted. You could also check at your local game store for sellers.  (Side note: don’t miss Games Workshop’s non-40k “Necromunda” line)
  • AdventurersHasslefree Miniatures
  • Shadowrun – Iron Wind Metals  Some of these would work, and some wouldn’t.  Be sure to scroll through all of them, it’s a bit of an eclectic mix.
  • 3 pages of minis with rifles, 4 pages of minis with pistols -  Reaper
  • SuperfigsOld Glory Miniatures  This will take you to the category page, no pictures, but click on links that look interesting.
  • Gun Possessed Killer, Hawk Eyed Instigator – Dreamblade
  • Modern HeroesUSX Miniatures
  • Eden Line - Taban Miniatures Some of these minis even have things like stop signs for weapons and car doors for shields

Really, that’s just a start. I’d encourage you to explore some of the many miniatures manufacturers we’ve been mentioning over the past few weeks.  And hey, if you find a really good one, leave it in the comments!

Weapons

If you’re the type of person who likes to modify your miniatures, here are some good sources of weapons to swap out on your minis.  I could even see some fantasy/Gamma World hybrid minis by swapping medieval weapons for guns.

  • Guns, guns, gunsHeresy Miniatures  Here is a good selection of guns for your miniature.
  • Sebecki Hand WeaponsCrocodile Games A meat cleaver, baseball bat with a nail in it, and a wooden mallet
  • Sci-fi guns & Zombie Hunter WeaponsHasslefree Miniatures I especially think the Zombie Hunter weapons are Gamma World appropriate; a hockey stick, a baseball bat, a chainsaw…
  • Chains & Some flintlock pistolsReaper There’s nothing like a Seismic Simian wielding a chain to say “Welcome to Gamma Terra.”
  • And more guns – Armorcast

Terrain

Obviously, most of the D&D dungeon tiles don’t work too well in a Gamma World setting.  The exception being, of course, the outdoor tiles.  Stretching your creativity by reusing the poster maps that came with the game in different scenarios will only take you so far.  Here are some other sources of terrain for your game.

  • Modern Models & TerrainArmorcast This is a whole category, so be sure to click through to the different sub categories. For those of you with fat wallets.
  • Molds 270-280 & 300-327Hirst Arts Most people don’t know that Hirst Arts has a line of Sci-Fi molds.  Until Dwarven Forge starts producing post-apocalyptic terrain, this is pretty much your only source of 3D terrain.  Visit the Sci-fi section of the projects page to see some of these molds in action.
  • Modern & Sci-fi Terrain – World Works Games I would point especially to the Modern sets; there seems to be a lot that could be useful there.  Sci-Fi sets could be useful as well, depending upon your campaign.  In the modern line, the Mayhem Destroyed set looks especially Gamma World-y.
  • Modern & Sci-Fi Art PacksDundjinni If you’d like to try your hand at making your own Gamma World dungeon tiles, I’d highly recommend Dundjinni.  Not only do they have Modern and Sci-fi art packs, but they also have very active user forums that are always producing new FREE art that you can use with the program.  Also, if you don’t want to buy the progam, you can still go to the user forums and surf around for user-made maps.  I haven’t been able to get on the Dundjinni store for a few months now.  I’m not sure what the story is there, but the forums are still working if you’re looking for free user art (if you already have the program) and free user made maps (if you don’t). 

So, now it’s time to start in on the origins from Famine in Far-Go.  If you have any origins you’d rather see sooner than later, leave us a comment.  Next Thursday, we’ll cover: Gelatinous

Where to find Gamma World Miniatures: Swarm

This post is part of a series pointing readers to good sources of Gamma World miniatures for their PCs. I do not own all these minis, so please check with the manufacturer if you’re unsure of their size.

So, I get it.  Swarms, while being a strangely iconic foe that break the mold defining the word “monster,” are kind of hard to play as a character. And I will admit (confession time) that swarms are my least favorite of the Gamma World origins. I could certainly go on for several more paragraphs on that, but I will spare you.  Suffice it to say, there are ways to play a swarm that don’t involve what we traditionally think of as a swarm.  Use your creativity.  Or, if you insist, use one of these minis…

Swarms (Prepainted)

Swarms (Unpainted)

Well, sorry the list is so short, but that’s about it for swarm miniatures.  And that wraps up the origins from the first Gamma World book.  Next time we’ll tackle some general issues before we dive into Famine in Far-go’s origins with: Gelatinous 

Where to get Gamma World Miniatures: Felinoid

 This post is part of a series pointing readers to sources of miniatures to use for their Gamma World PCs.  For the rest of the series, click the “Article Series” link on the menu bar.  By way of disclaimer, I do not own all the miniatures listed here, so if you’re unsure about a miniature’s size or anything else, please contact the manufacturer before purchasing.

Heeeeeere kitty kitty! Today, we’re going to look at the Felinoid origin.  I’m going to organize my lists a little differently this time as well.  Instead of picking miniatures based upon whether they’re representative of “primary” or “secondary” origin, I’m going to list them in “Prepainted” and “Unpainted” categories. 

I think most people buy their miniatures based on that criteria, rather than the former categorizations.  Ok, let’s look at some catfolk minis.  And whatever you do, don’t pull his tail.  He hates that.

Unpainted Miniatures

  • Tawny Firehair, Kyoko Silvers, Weretigress, Daughter of Sekhmet, Another Weretigress, Cheetah Girl, Lady Tiger and Sabretooth Tiger Man - Reaper Whew. Who would have thought Reaper has so many Catfolk? You’d think it was a regular fantasy race.  Oh, and here’s a bonus one for all the Felinoid/Hawkoid characters out there: Winged Tiger
  • RarRegiment Games These are 28mm figs, making them slightly larger than the standard 25mm fantasy. I’ve never seen a 28mm fig, so I can’t say how they fit on a battle map.  At any rate, they’re pretty cool lion-esque minis, and they’ve got Omega tech; the Reaper minis don’t.
  • Tigrid Aliens – Khurasan Miniatures You’ll have to scroll down to find them.  15mm Sci-fi scale, and they have the Omega tech to prove it.
  • Bastet Cat Woman lineEureka Miniatures This is a series of minis in the Chaos Egyptian line.  Scroll down the page to find them.
  • Cat BodyguardsBlack Cat Bases The only two I like in this set are the bodyguards.
  • Panthera WarbandBlack Orc Miniatures These minis come in a set of 7.
  • Cat ThiefDark Sword Miniatures This one looks like a cat (as opposed to a cat-person)
  • BastiCrocodile Games This is a whole line of miniatures, with an Egyptian feel.
  • Cat Burglar – Iron Wind Metals
  • 2nd Irregular CamerooniansInfinity Miniatures Lion people. In kilts. With sci-fi guns. If that doesn’t get you to click through, you should give up gaming.

Prepainted Miniatures

Well, that’s all we have for you this time.  If you know of any that should be added, leave them in the comments.  Next up: Swarm

 

Where to Get Gamma World Miniatures: Hawkoid

This article is part of a series where we link to good miniatures to use for your Gamma World PC.  By way of disclaimer, we do not own all the miniatures reviewed here, so if you’re not sure about the size of a mini (i.e., if it will fit in a one inch square), you should check with the manufacturer first.

Hawkoid, also known as “the guy with the wings.”  We’ve got some fun choices, especially if you have Hawkoid as a secondary origin.  As a matter of fact, there are just too many secondary origin choices for me to link to all of them.  I’m basically going to point you in the right direction and say “have at it” because finding winged fantasy miniatures is pretty easy.  It’s the “mostly bird-looking” miniatures that are a bit more scarce.

 

Primary Origin

  • BirdmanReaper This guy is pretty much the quintessential  Hawkoid figure.  My first choice, all the way. (And the mini pictured at the top of the article)
  • Bloodbound SkeeverDreamblade This mini’s wings aren’t what I’d like, but he does have the bird head.
  • Kenku Wingmage, Kenku Sneak, Kenku WarriorD&D Miniatures  Kenku are, of course, D&D’s “birdmen.”
  • KenkuRal Partha The original Kenku miniatures produced by Ral Partha; very rare and hard to find.  Probably expensive.  But they’re out there. (Painted Pics, you have to scroll down to find them)
  • Wereraven – Mage Knight
  • Talon WarriorMage Knight
  • Lox JargEnigma Miniatures This is probably the coolest mini of the bunch, definitely a contender for my favorite.
  • Falcon SoldierDreamblade

Secondary Origin

So, the secondary origin is generally interpreted as “winged,” meaning the character looks like their primary origin, except with wings.  The easiest way to do that with a mini is to, well, add wings.  Reaper has wing packs that you can get to add to an existing mini.  Just glue and go.  Well, glue, PAINT, and go.

You can also just get an “angel” mini, and there are a few to choose from. This set of search results from Reaper has all figures with wings; you’ll get more than just humanoid figures, but there’s just too many to link individually.  Here are a few more from other manufacturers:

You get the picture. 

So how about you?  Did I miss any? Do you know of the perfect “XXX/Hawkoid” mini? Think you can find better angels? Leave them in the comments! Next up: Felinoid!

Where to get Gamma World Miniatures: Cockroach

This post is part of a series pointing readers to good sources of Gamma World miniatures for their PCs.  For the rest of the series, click the “Article Series” link on the menu above.  By way of disclaimer, I do not own all of these miniatures, and I can’t always tell what size they are.  It’s best to contact the manufacturer before purchasing to make sure a mini will fit in a 1″ grid.

Ah, cockroach.  Unless you want to use a rubber cockroach from a novelty supply company as your miniature (and hey, if that’s your speed, who am I to judge? You there…move along please…), you’re going to have to allow me to expand our definition to “bug man.”  I’ve searched far and wide, and no one really makes a cockroach miniature, per se.  However, if we say the Cockroach origin is more like a generic bug man, our pool of possible minis increases dramatically.  So then, let us jump into that pool of bug men…or not, your call.            (Side Note: the “Primary” “Secondary” categories on this specific origin are a bit arbitrary.  They all look pretty much like bug men.)

 

Primary Origin

  • SPUGsSpriggan Miniatures  These little guys are some of the many 15mm Sci Fi minis included here.  The really cool thing about the 15mm scifi minis is the weapons they’re carrying – definite Omega tech going on there, which is something the other minis don’t sport. The 15mm scale means they’ll be a bit smaller than the standard 25mm minis.  That’s ok; just because they’re giant bugs doesn’t mean they’re human sized bugs. (US Distributor)
  • Mantis WarriorReaper I think this guy is Reaper’s version of the Thri Keen (below).
  • Dreenoi -  Reverisco From the “Science Fiction Starguard” line.
  • Vespulid Swarm & Mantoids & Spearbear Insect Men- Khurasan Miniatures You have to scroll down to find them.  All 15mm scale.
  • Myrm Warrior & DriverBlack Orc Miniatures
  • GlockroachOld Glory Miniatures This one is really cool – a bug man with 4 guns. How could you go wrong?
  • Hooked Hulk – Reaper This guy is probably size large, though I suspect that could be “fixed.”
  • Umber HulkD&D Miniatures – I know for SURE this one is size large, and at $25 (currently) on the secondary market, he’s probably not a candidate for base separation surgery.  But I thought I would include him anyways; he’s pictured at the top of the article.
  • Thri Kreen Barbarian, Thri Kreen Ranger, Thri Kreen Warrior – D&D Miniatures From the Dark Sun setting.
  • XillD&D Miniatures
  • Crucian – D&D Miniatures
  • Hive Pincer, Deathhead – Dreamblade
  • Meik – Heroclix
  • SwarmlingMageknight
  • KithixHydra Miniatures

Secondary Origin

  • Red Mantis Assassin – Reaper I put this one in the secondary category because he only has two arms.
  • Roach Spirit – Iron Wind Miniatures
  • Shelled OneMage Knight  More crab than insect, but who looks that close?
  • Crusties & More Crusties -  GZG Like the “Shelled One” above, these resemble crustaceans… hence the name “Crustie.”
  • Verpine Tech – Star Wars Miniatures
  • General GreviousStar Wars Miniatures If you have an Android/Cockroach character, this is pretty much the mini for you.
  • Mezzodemon, Mezzoloth – D&D Miniatures Cockroach/Demon or Cockroach/Nightmare

We hope you found a good proxie you can use in your Gamma World game.  If you know of any we’ve missed, please leave them in the comments.  Next week, we’ll be covering Hawkoid!

Where to get Gamma World Miniatures: Yeti

 

This article is part of a series pointing readers to good sources of Gamma World miniatures to represent PCs. By way of disclaimer, I do not own all of the minis named in this article. It’s best to contact the manufacturer before buying if you are unsure of the size and scale of the mini, and whether it will fit in a 1″ square.

Yeti. Sasquatch. The Abominable Snowman. Bigfoot. Wendigo.  No matter what you call him, he’s a big hairy ape-man.   Believe it or not, there’s a pretty good collection of these guys (or proxies) out there for you to choose from. Some may require a little repainting if you prefer your Yeti to be shades of white, but then again, I don’t see why you can’t go with more of a brown haired “Bigfoot” look.  And now, without further ado, big hairy ape-man miniatures, coming at you…Oh, and it probably goes without saying, but if you’re playing Gamma World, you’re calling him a Yeti.

Primary Origin

We’ll start with Reaper because, well, that’s usually where I turn first when I  need a mini.  Turns out they have a few to choose from.

  • Sasquatch – Reaper This guy looks like your classic Bigfoot.
  • Sasquatch (angry) – Reaper This one, while sharing a name with the mini above, looks to have more of an anger management problem.
  • Yeti WarriorYeti Chieftan, Yeti Warrior (2), Yeti Shaman   Reaper - These guys are similar, thought I’m partial to the Shaman who boasts some Gamma World bling (if painted correctly) and a staff.
  • Yeti -  Reaper The guy pictured at the top of the article.
  • YetiCopplestone Castings You’ll find them listed near the bottom under “Other Animals.” (Not under “Polar Perils” or “Lost Worlds.” Go figure)
  • Abominable Snow Beast & Snow Warriors -  Crocodile Games There are several of these guys, in different poses, and all awesome.  Some have horns.
  • YheteeGames Workshop These guys are “Special Units” in the “Ogre Kingdoms” Warhammer Army. They sport weapons made out of ice, which is pretty cool.
  • Giant Hairy Hominids -  Pulp Figures
  • Yetis and Yeti LeaderWest Wind Miniatures
  • Ice TrollsOld Glory Miniatures In my opinion, these guys are more “Troll” than Yeti, but they may suit what you’re looking for.
  • Snow Troll -  Heresy Miniatures This one looks almost like an alien Yeti.
  • SasquatchIron Wind Metals
  • Yeti – Black Tree Design – Ummm… obese yeti? This one doesn’t look too imposing, but if that’s what you’re going for, this is your mini.
  • White Tusk One Horn GrowlersRal Partha Europe From the VOR line of their miniatures, you need to scroll down a bit to find them on the list. They have a huge horn on their head, but hey, this is Gamma World mutants we’re talking about.
  • Warlord Grom - Old Glory Miniatures This one would serve really well if your secondary origin is cockroach.  The tusks look just like bug mandibles.
  • SasquatchMasquerade Miniatures

 For pre-painted minis, we have a few choices as well:

  • Wookie, Wookie Freedom Fighter, Chewbacca, Wookie Berserker, Tarfful – Star Wars Miniatures Oh come on, am I the only one who thinks that Chewbacca is pretty much just an overly shaggy bigfoot??
  • Rampaging WampaStar Wars Miniatures
  • Talz – Star Wars Miniatures Not really at the top of my list, but I thought I’d throw him in there.
  • YetiPathfinder Miniatures This one is from the Rise of the Runelords set (and unreleased at the time of writing)
  • YetiHeroscape This one links to a blog because it’s difficult to find the actual product for sale.  Try ebay, and search for the “Tundra” expansion to Heroscape.  I’m guessing it’s out of print, and judging by the ebay prices, it’s in demand.  At any rate, it comes with 3 Yeti figures.  They’re painted white, and are in different poses.
  • SasquatchHorrorClix Stereotypical, no surprises here.
  • WendigoMarvel HeroClix This guy has a tail and huge claws.  And gives me the willies for some reason.
  • SasquatchMarvel HeroClix This guy looks more human than the HorrorClix Sasquatch, and has much longer hair.

 Secondary Origin

I have just one recommendation for a character with Yeti as a secondary origin and something human as their primary: Bugbear.  Now hear me out.  Isn’t that what a bugbear is, really?  A hulking half beast half man.  Go look at the picture in the monster manual if you don’t believe me.  Of course, if you prefer your Yetis white, there will be some painting required, but I think you will be pleased with the results.  D&D Miniatures and Reaper have a good selection of Bugbears, so I’m just going to focus on them.  First, the unpainted ones from Reaper:

Bugbears (all)Reaper

And the prepainted ones:

BugbearReaper (Legendary Encounters Line) What? You didn’t know Reaper made prepainted minis?

Since D&D Miniatures are out of production, I’ll just list the miniatures collection the bugbear came out with and its name.  Then, you can check out the miniatures reseller of your own choosing.

  • Bugbear gang leader – Unhallowed
  • Bugbear – Dragoneye
  • Bugbear Footpad – Giants of Legend
  •  Bugbear Champion – Angelfire
  • Marauder Bugbear – Dungeons of Dread
  • Bugbear Lancebreaker – Against the Giants
  • Bugbear Strangler & Bugbear Warrior – Demonweb

And the D&D miniatures galleries can be found here, if you want to check out the minis listed.

That’s all the Yetis we could find!  If you know of one we didn’t include here, please post it in the comments. Next up: Cockroach

 

 

Where to Get Gamma World Miniatures: Plant Origin

This article is part of a series pointing readers to good sources of Gamma World miniatures to represent PCs.

At first, the plant origin may seem a bit daunting.  After all, how do you represent your character if he’s a giant ficus tree?  Luckily, plant beings are already a part of many fantasy settings, so there are plenty of miniatures available to fill this niche.  Please note that I do not own all of these miniatures.  Some of them may be too big for a 1″ battle grid.  Check with the store about whether they’ll fit on a 25mm base before purchasing. Also, since some of the minis are based on a 1.5″, chunky “click” base, you may want to do a little research on re-basing the Mage Knight, Dreamblade, and Heroclix minis.  It’s an easy procedure if you know where to get new bases and own a razor blade and some glue.

Prepainted Miniatures

  • Man ThingHero Clix
  • Green Crusader - Dreamblade These are out of production, see the secondary market.
  • Black Woods DryadD&D Miniatures
  • Wizened Elder WatcherD&D Minatures
  • Bog ElementalWoW Miniatures
  • Bogillian – Dreamblade This one would work well as a Plant/Swarm or Plant/Gelatinous
  • DryadDreamblade This was a miniatures line by WoTC that is out of production.  Check the secondary market.
  • Green CrusaderDreamblade
  • Swamp Thing – Hero Clix
  • Splinter, Thorn Maiden  – Mage Knight
  • Saproling WarriorReaper This miniature is a small treant, basically.  Games Workshop makes something similar, called Dryads (core units in the Warhammer Wood Elves army), but as far as I can tell, you can only buy them in packs of 12 for $35.  The Reaper mini is a better choice if you’re looking for something like a treant.  If you do like the Games Workshop Dryad better, you can check Ebay – search for something like “Games Workshop bits Dryad” and make sure to check the box that says “Search in description.”  You could also include “Tree Elf” in your search.  You may find someone selling leftover pieces, or if you’re really lucky, you’ll find someone selling off their fully painted army.  Just yesterday I saw some stuff there for pretty cheap.
  • Swamp Shambler - Reaper There are actually two “Swamp Shamblers” (second one here) which have more of a “mound of seaweed” look than a “tree” look.  The only caveat with these two guys is I don’t know how big they are.  They may be size large; from looking at the pictures though, it seems as though you may be able to modify the base, or rebase them entirely.  Most “large” Reaper minis don’t take up a full 4 squares.
  • Tree ManFenryll Miniatures I suspect this guy and his friend are also too large, but I thought I’d include them; I will also note that they have some pretty cool “Post Apocalyptic” line of minis.  Check out the menu.
  • The Greenman – Darkson Miniatures This one comes with a 40mm base, but I can tell from the picture that it should definitely fit into a 25mm base.  Probably.
  • Tree Familiar – Reaper This little guy is part of one of the “Familiars” packs. 
  • Tree Spirit - Trollforged Comes with a 40mm base, but unassembled, meaning you can position the legs to fit on a 25mm base.
  • Deadwood Stumpy & Deadwood Shredder – Impact Miniatures These guys just look like brutes.
  • Father OakPulp City I believe this one comes with “acorn” a little girl miniature who could also be a plant miniature – secondary origin.
  • Redwood Treeman – Blacktree Design This guy just looks creepy.
  • Wormwood – Ral Part… I mean IronWind Metals He’ll be the guy at the top right.  Click the thumbnail for a larger view. They also have a Demon Tree.
  • Tree LordUltraforge Miniatures Not sure on the size of this guy.
  • Mutant Plants – Ramshackle Games
  • Carnivorous Plants I & II -  Fenryll Miniatures
  • VarduHydra Miniatures
  • LoreleiReaper  You can’t really tell from the unpainted miniature, but there are all sorts of leaves growing out of this mini’s skin.
  • Timberline Elf DryadImpact Miniatures This one is part of an “Elfball” team, so she’s wearing some sports pads.  Great for a Gamma World mini.
  • Wood Elf BranchwraithGames Workshop This one is probably more plant than human, but it looks really cool.  It could probably serve well for either a primary or secondary plant origin.
  • Ou-schaa Dryad PrincessEnigma Miniatures Another mini of a different scale, but should fit in a smaller base with a little modification.

Unpainted Miniatures

    In addition to any one of these miniatures, you could also take an existing miniature and merely paint the skin tones green, and/or glue some “clump foliage” onto it. Clump foliage is the stuff you use to make model railroad trees, and you would find it in that section of your local craft store.  If you use clump foliage, be sure to brush it with a thin layer of Elmer’s glue to keep it from rubbing off.

    Wow, that list got longer than I thought.  If I missed any, please leave them in the comments.  We’re hoping that this becomes an all-inclusive list.  Next up: Yeti!

    Where To Get Gamma World Miniatures: Introduction

    Let me begin by saying that this post is largely useless, and is only here because of my overwhelming need to be thorough.  If you insist on reading the entire thing, please go forward fully aware that you are most likely wasting your time. If you are hesitant to do that, you can also zip to the italicised text at the bottom for the summarized conclusion.

    Gamma World is to Dungeons & Dragons what Mr. Hyde is to Dr. Jekyll.  It’s got the same blood running through its veins, but Gamma World is looser, faster, and a lot more crazy and unpredictable.  If you watch the D&D blogs at all, you’d know that  Gamma World is the new hotness in the D&D community.  It’s true.  That’s why I’m a little surprised that the only miniatures support Wizards of the Coast (WotC) is giving for this new game is cardboard tokens.  I don’t know about you, but when I sit down to play D&D, I like to have a miniature to put on the board, and I like it to be painted.  I think most other players are in the same boat.  Since WotC doesn’t seem interested in providing miniature support for this game, I thought I’d do some research and provide you with some places to get the Gamma World PC minis you so badly desire.

    Now, originally, I had intended for this to be only one post.  However, as I began searching, tagging, and saving links, I realized that there is just too much material out there for me to cram it into one column.  For example, in my search for Hawkoid type miniatures, I found that guy up there at the top of this article.  Now tell me he wouldn’t make a perfect Pyrokinetic/Hawkoid.  (By the way, he’s the “Angel of Valor” from the D&D Minis line.)  That’s the sort of thing I kept coming across, each one making me more excited than the last.  For each category, I was coming up with 10 to 15 different minis (or more!), and trying to fit that many links into one article would become unweildy.  That wouldn’t be fair to you, and if there’s anything I’m concerned about, it’s how fairly you, gentle reader, are being treated.

    So before I lauch into the inevitable series of articles coming your way, I will note that there are only a few origins that are going to give you trouble.  Most of the origins are “human” in nature, and are covered quite well by any manufacturer that makes modern or futuristic miniatures.  Instead, I will focus on the six more exotic origins: Felinoid, Plant, Hawkoid, Cockroach, Swarm, and Yeti.  I may eventually dip into the expansion origins from Famine in Far-Go and Legion of Gold, but for now, the above list should suffice.

    In conclusion: come back every Thursday for the next month or so as I take each exotic character origin in turn, and hand pick some of my favorite minis to help bring your Gamma World character to life.   Or add us to your RSS reader –  that works too.  First up: Plant!
