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.
- 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 Droid, R2-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.
- Civilian Pack 3 – Old Glory Miniatures There’s a guy in a wheelchair in this pack
- CAV Line of Miniatures – Reaper Speaking of Mechwarrior, Reaper has this line of mechs, tanks, and various other vehicles. I believe there is a miniatures game that goes along with it.
- Cyclops Land Wheeler – RAFM Miniatures Built in gun + steampunk look = win.
- Imp APC – RAFM Miniatures
- Post-apocalyptic figs in vehicles – Fenryll Miniatures Scroll to the bottom of the page.
- Ape on Bike – Eureka Miniatures Look! Wheeled/Simian!
- Patrol Steamer – Armorcast Minis From their clockwork line.
