Where to Find Gamma World Miniatures: Simian

This post is part of a series detailing miniatures for specific Gamma World origins.  For the rest of the series, click the “Article Series” link on the menu bar above.  And, as always, if you are unsure of a miniature’s scale, please contact the manufacturer before buying.

It’s time for Simian! Monkey men! Something I found fascinating was the range of “sentience” depicted in the minis presented.  Some of them exhibit merely an animal intelligence, all the way up through the ones that are fully dressed in human clothes and walking upright.  It wasn’t something I really thought about beforehand, but became rather obvious as I was sifting through minis.  It’s also something to think about if you create a character with the Simian origin.  What is his intelligence level?  Is he barely more than an animal? Or can he walk, talk, and dress like a human?

    I’d like to see either canine men or fish men next.

      Well, for now, I’m covering Gamma World PC origins, so I need to stick to what’s in the books. I’ll keep that in mind for a future post though!

  2. I’m very curious to see what you come up with for either fungoid or wheeled.

    Reaper has a bunch of unpainted Ape minis. Go to their site and type Ape into the Figure Finder.

    Ape-X and Tonga looks like fun.

      Ha! You’re right. I usually start with Reaper, but this time I guess I overlooked them. At any rate, I’ve added them.

    I’m not sure if you’re following the original/earlier editions or the latest 4E compatible version as far as origins go, but here’s a few I’d love to see:

    Androids
    Plants
    Insects
    Radioactive

    If it’s an older edition:
    Orlens
    Grens
    Iron Society

    This one is no gorilla, and is a bit steampunky, but it is a fantastic miniature; the Cybermonkey from Ammon Miniatures.
    It’s about halfway down the page at http://ammon-miniatures.com/?page_id=19&lang=en
