Marco Polo’s home town … as a pot!Posted: October 6, 2014
Besides having a Marco Polo Museum, there are several shops selling Marco Polo merchandise. Besides the normal pens, pencils, fridge magnets etc., the shops also sell more up-market goods, including a rather interesting lidded storage pot. Both Sue and I saw it and thought that it might have potential use in a wargame as it resembles the sort of prototype built-up areas that I was working on earlier in the year. Rather than being two dimensional flat buildings, the storage pot is round and hollow, thus allowing figures to be placed inside it.
It has certainly given me some more ideas about creating built-up areas that figures can fit in, and even if I don’t end up using it in a wargame, it is a nice storage pot to have on my desk.
