Where to get Gamma World Miniatures: Wheeled

This article is part of a series discussing sources for Gamma World PC miniatures.  The rest of the (rather large) series can be found in the “Article Series” link above.  As always, check with the manufacturer before buying if you are unsure of size.

Well, we made it! This is the last origin I will be covering, and I thank you for reading along as I did this series.  There will be one final wrap up post talking about monsters and the origins that didn’t get their own post, so stay tuned for that.  Until then, I give you: Wheeled!  I have to admit, this isn’t my favorite origin.  When I think wheeled, I think “vehicle,” and a hunk of metal that you ride around in doesn’t seem to fit into my idea of “origins.”  There are very few origins that reconcile well with wheeled (AI, for instance – Knight Rider, anyone?).  Of course, you could also go the “in a wheelchair” or “on a Segway” route if you really need your PC to be an organism.  Either way, here are some minis for your wheeled character.

Prepainted Miniatures

  • Professor Xavier (1, 2, 3, 4), Oracle - Heroclix The aforementioned “person in a wheelchair.”
  • One Man Army, Malefic Steamroller, Mobile Command, Wicked Carriage - Dreamblade I have a feeling the designers were imagining something like One Man Army when they came up with wheeled.
  • Monocycles (1, 2, 3, 4, from the Wolf Strike line) – Mechwarrior
  • Mechwarrior line - Mechwarrior Speaking of Mechwarrior, pretty much any of the Mechs could be considered “wheeled” in my book, even if they are technically lacking actual wheels. The miniatures line also has tanks and other vehicles (transports, ATVs, missle launchers, etc.).  You’ll have to sift through them yourself, because there’s too much for me to post here.  Choose a category that has “singles” after the name, and have at it.
  • R5 Astromech Droid, E522 Assassin Droid, R4 Astromech DroidR2-D2, R7 Astromech, Mouse Droid - Star Wars Miniatures There are also several flying droids, if you want to stretch the definition of “wheeled” (and hey, why not?).  The mouse droid would make a perfect Wheeled/Swarm.

    There are actually more wheeled miniature options than I anticipated. Nice finds.

    Another option that I’ve considered for my GW game (for people who don’t want a cyborg or machine character) is to interpret the wheeled origin as a centaur-type creature (depending on your other origin you could be all sorts of animal combinations – felinoid + wheeled = wemic, for example). After all, at its core, the wheeled origin just means you move fast, and can overrun people – powers that would fit with any big, multi-legged creature (roach + wheeled = giant sentient centipede).
