In the back of the first edition (not second edition) of the Black Powder! rules (on pg. 182) there is a sepia-tone photo of what is clearly a 19th Cent. photographer, his assistant, a tripod camera, and the horse-drawn van for and his photographic equipment. I had assumed the "set" was painted to represent Roger Fenton, from the Crimean War. However, perhaps it was produced by some vendor as an ACW photographer, like Matthew Brady (?), and the gamer who lent his set to Warlord Games for the photograph that appears in the rules book had possibly painted the set to LOOK like Fenton & his van (based on a photo taken in Crimea at the time?). Was hoping that someone could identify what 28mm miniatures manufacturer makes/made that set?

Thanks in advance for assistance! grin

I despair. No one knows anything of the "set" of which I inquire?
