Where to find Gamma World Miniatures: Gelatinous

This post is part of a series where we explore good places to find Gamma World PC minis.  If you want the rest of the series, click the “Article Series” link on the menu bar above.  Please contact the seller if you are unsure of a mini’s size before you buy it.  Caveat Emptor and all that.

So, if there’s one character origin that begs for a do-it-yourself mini, it’s gelatinous.  (A close second is wheeled, but we’ll get to that another time.)  I mean, how could you screw it up?  You’re supposed to be this grotesque…blob.  Even a three year old could do that.  I mean, look at that picture there – my three year old did that with some play doh and a toothpick.  Ok, maybe not, but getting some sculpy  and fashioning it into a blobby lump approximately 1″ around isn’t exactly rocket science.  You could probably also use water effects, which is a product I detailed in the “Well & Pool” post.  At any rate, if you’re not feeling  especially artsy and craftsy, here are some other ideas to bring your gelatinous mass to life.  As usual, I’ve divided your choices into “unpainted” and “prepainted,” though I’m not sure if I should have bothered with the unpainted.  I mean, if you’re the type of person to take the time to paint a mini, you could probably take the time to go the sculpy route.

So, there aren’t a ton of “ooze” minis out there, but if you think a little outside the box, you can find what you need.  What do I mean by “outside the box” you ask?  Elementals, of course.  There are plenty of those, and they’re this kind of amorphous creature, not unlike an ooze.  Personally, I favor water elementals for ooze-type minis, with air and fire tying for second, and earth a distant third.  Unless, of course, you’re a gelatinous seismic, in which case earth elementals are pretty much perfect.

Unpainted Minis

  • Slimes, Undead OozeReaper Undead Ooze?? Did someone say “Gelatinous Reanimated”??
  • All Elementals – Reaper Sorry, I’m getting lazy.
  • Make Your Own!!  Hirst Arts Not for the faint of heart.
  • Air ElementalWest Wind Productions They probably have more, but I had a hard time navigating the store.

Prepainted Minis

So, just a heads up, I may be taking a break from this series for a while. I’m itching to do some other stuff, but when I come back to it, we’ll be covering….Simian

    Hey, I’m loving this series! I’ve recently been “curating” my own little Gamma World army of minis and you’ve got a ton of great suggestions. I found a good ‘gooey’ guy you may want to add–the Imaginary Friend from Horrorclix: http://www.trollandtoad.com/p183436.html

    Looking forward to the Simians! 🙂

    This is a brilliant idea from Wizards. Sometimes we just don’t have time to organize and play an RPG section, so this Starter is a nice way to play right away, with no DM needed! The rules booklet explains everything in a straight way, it’s easy to understand (my daughter and nephew loved it) and it’s all fun. And of course, you can use it to play DnD. The maps can be used for a lot of adventures.

    The only cons I see is that you have to buy more minis to play it better, since 5 is a small number. And I think the maps could have a better quality material, since it seems that they will tear apart in a not distant future!

    But anyway, this was a NICE buy!
