Hero Forge Adds Customizable Wheelchairs For Minis
The custom miniature store has added options for wheelchair-using characters, in honor of International Wheelchair Day.
Hero Forge's range of options for its customizable tabletop minis just got a little bigger, with the addition of a set of wheelchairs for adventure-ready wheelchair-using characters. The new options include three different styles of wheelchair, which have been added in time for International Wheelchair Day.

Hero Forge is a service that allows you to design a customized TTRPG miniature, complete with weapons, mounts, and even animal companions. The finished designs can then be bought as a pre-made figure, or downloaded as a 3D-printable STL file.
The new wheelchairs have been added in the "Mounts" category, and include a basic "Modern Wheelchair," a decorative "Fantasy Town Wheelchair," and a "Fantasy Battle Wheelchair" that's exactly what it sounds like. The parts can also be mixed and matched between styles, with customizable wheels and handles.
Hero Forge also shared a tweet by Sara Thompson, a TTRPG designer who designed the homebrew Combat Wheelchair ruleset for Dungeons and Dragons 5E. The Combat Wheelchair got a big boost last year when it appeared in Critical Role, with NPC Dagen Underthorn proudly sporting the chair.
