Gamma World minis from Grenadeir

A wacky, wily game of postapocalyptic peril.

Gamma World minis from Grenadeir

Lost Minis Wiki has a page listing the Gamma World minis from Grenadier.

Here is what their blurb says:
Lost Minis WIki wrote:About the Range

Released around 1979, Grenadier incorporated various older ranges into the Gamma World line including the Star Soldiers and a John Carter Warlord of Mars range that they had failed to get a licence for (due to Heritage having the rights at the time). Later much of this range was incorporated into their fantasy releases.


Has anyone got any of these? What do you think of them?

Have any other companies made minis that are good for Gamma World games?

I have a Gamma World boxed set of minis, still unpainted, and they're somewhere with the rest of my minis in this cluster**** of my new apartment. :oops:

I also have a boxed set of Grenadier (?) Star Frontier minis, as well as Star Wars minis, released during West End Games' heyday of Star Wars d6 rules. I missed the Paranoia minis, although a single Infrared Drone came with the 2nd edition boxed set - the chap looks like ROn Perlman, holding a large wrench like a club. :cool:

The WH40k minis would make good Gamma World minis too, especially the heavily armored Gamma Knights.

D&D minis of simple humans with simple weapons like swords, bows & spears work good too.

I'm not sure, but I think there are minis being produced for Metamorphosis Alpha, might want to check that. MA would have all sorts of robots, androids & mutations. :mrgreen:

Grenadier is the only company to ever have a license to manufacture Gamma World miniatures. That being said, there are plenty of unpainted and pre-painted Star Wars and Dungeons & Dragons miniatures that work, and there are unpainted miniatures available for the "father" of GW, Metamorphosis Alpha.

And although not licensed, you might recognize (if you are old-school GW) the creatures at...

I pop my head out of the hole when I have something to contribute ;)
Most of the time, everyone else has it covered... plus, I've been focused on writing for D&D on DMs Guild. (Not that I've produced that much, but I have works in various states of progress. If they would only do something like a GW Guild.)

I haven't done anything with GW for years now, :( while most of my time is focused on creating 5e content for my face-to-face group I feel the same way about DM's Guild, only I'd add in homebrew campaign settings into it, so I don't have to adjust my setting to FR.
