Around Christmas, I had one of my periodic brilliant ideas and threw together a bunch of junk from my bits box to make some post-apocalyptic market stalls. The project developed gradually over the next months; I put together a load of civilian models from different manufacturers and various trade goods and merchandise. Some of them are here in these photos I took over the weekend.
|The market is a hive of activity, where different tribes meet in peace under the watchful eyes of the guards.|
|Some merchants collect scrap from all across the wastes.|
|A happy couple ties the knot in the market's wedding chapel.|
|An itinerant water peddler on his way to market.|
|A rad-farmer sells his wares while luckless prisoners are taken to the slave markets by mercenaries.|
|The preservation of pre-apocalypse culture is a sacred duty for this friar, but the monastery has to eat and so they must part with a few of their least valuable treasures. A psion guild officer looks over the wares, hoping for a bargain.|
|A vendor of survival goods glowers at the missionary of Robot Jesus who is scaring off all his customers.|
|A mutant merchant and his porters bring cool, refreshing water into the market, while in the background a scavenger and an android royal haggle over valuable space spice.|
|Doctor Jeff runs the clinic; it's very hygienic.|
|The Gnomads don't sell the best weapons, necessarily, but the price is right.|
A lot of manufacturers are represented, including Oakbound Games, Ramshackle Games, Blind Beggar Miniatures, ThunderChild Miniatures, Wargames Foundry, Wargames Terrain Workshop, Fox Box, Prince August, Grenadier and more. I particularly want to thank Ramshackle, Oakbound and Blind Beggar, who provided some of the models in this display free of charge!
