Post-apocalypse merchant planned

So I was browsing through random bits and pieces of 54mm stuff on the web. I look through a bunch of old Marx reissued toys and found a set of dairy accessories.

The first thing that caught my eye was the little hand cart with big tires. Then I spied the milk cans. In my mind, I put those two elements together to create a post-apocalyptic street wine vendor. I'm even thinking of painting the milk cans to resemble old Greek amphoras.

The remaining items will be great for some more random post-apocalyptic kipple.

Now, I'm not sure what I will actually create when the items arrive (oh yes, I did order the set along with a few random Marx figures to see how they'll fit in with a little conversion work), but I'm pretty certain I will be creating a post-apoc travelling merchant cart of some sort. What will it be used for? It'll just be some nice scenery on the side of the arena. I'm doing it more for the fun of the actual creation.


  1. Master-Blaster runs Bartertown!

  2. Mmm, milk cans full of garum and post-apocalyptic bathtub soy sauce...

  3. Oh no- I was reading one of my books on ancient Rome, and I just found out what Garum is. Awesome.
