Can anyone help with identifying the manufacturer of the galleys in this photo from Carryings On Up the Dale Blog taken at Claymore 2018?

My limited amount of investigating indicates it may be the Tyneside Wargames Club's Bronze Age Naval game. I couldn't find out anymore but heres another photo:

Pretty impressive that they have full crews to include oars, rowers, etc.

The boats themselves look made by the club with bought castings for the crew.

Hi Big Red (an all)
Many thanks for the positive feedback on the galleys etal. It is greatly appreciated!!!
The galleys are the pre production proto types from Fogg of War Minaitures who sponsored the game for the Tyneside Wargames Club. The crews are also from Fogg of War. They are hoping to have these and other 10mm figures and boats with crew ready for production if the forseeable future (or sooner if the lads can retire from their current employ earlier. They will hit the usual sites etc when this happens. But in the meantime feel free to contact me).
