Good eyes. This photo and set-up is for Tamerlane II, a variant on a 11x11,
not on the 11x10 + 2 extra cases of orginal Tamerlane Chess.
Here, there is no need to differentiate the Pawns.
In Tamerlane Chess, they used to play with 2 sets, one big for the major
pieces and one small for the pawns. Then, they could recognize which Pawn
is at every moment.
