It's a very general problem hardly related to copyright. There are lots
sales sites on the web featuring Orcs, Roman Legionaries, Napoleon's Old
Guard or Waffen-SS Officers without pictures. Even if you have an idea
dress and equipment, this doesn't tell you what they really look like.
this isn't confined to websites. I have lots of paper catalogues with no
very few pictures, or perhaps just sketches. Pity really.

I know it takes effort and money to build a graphic website, but a plain
text list is a deterrent to buying, especially if you don't know the
and have no idea of the quality of their product.
