I found a few minutes here and there over the last few evenings to continue with the terrain for 55 Days at Peking.
Adjacent to the British and Russian Legations was an area known as the Mongol Market which I've not managed to find much information or imagery on unfortunately. Undeterred, I've decided to represent this as a rather rough and ready marketplace with a number of stalls of various sizes and construction methods.
Some dowel, canvas squares, bamboo matting and a pile of cork off-cuts have subsequently been turned into four quite serviceable market stalls with removable roofs.
A number of online vendors produce some quite reasonably priced and comprehensive market goods collections which combined with some crates and barrels should give me a quite convincing representation I think.
Next up? Some ruined housing destroyed by Chinese shelling...
