Clan Wolf - Silver Keshik  - Daishi is MIA  :)
Looks like we lost that one somewhere along the way.  Removed.  Thanks for finding it.

Just discovered that there's a page for Fire Horse Galaxy (https://camospecs.com/unit/fire-horse-galaxy/), but there's no link for it on the Clan Hell's Horses faction page (https://camospecs.com/factions/clan-hells-horses/). Instead, if you click the faction link on the former page, it takes you here: https://camospecs.com/listing-cat/clan-hells-horses
Hell's Horses faction page updated.  Thanks!

Will Clan Wolverine get a gallery like the rest, or are they doomed to a Not-Seen status as well?  ^-^
For the moment, they're on the list of factions waiting for a product or special project that lists out their units.  I have no inkling of one for them being on the horizon.

Got a 404 error when I clicked on the link for the Umayyad 1st Corps. https://camospecs.com/factions/umayyad-caliphate-2/umayyad-1st-corps/
Link from the image fixed.  Thanks!

Do Sulla Omnifighters now come with tracking?  ;D

https://camospecs.com/listing/sulla-omnifighter-2/

we get a google maps section instead of the faction information.
Fixed (along with incorrect era info).  Thanks for pointing that one out.

Curious if their is a new images page planned?

I know the six tiles on the front page seem to be the new ones, but wondering if more than those are added how you'd find them?

That's a bit of a relic.  On the old site there was only IWM #'s, and we salvaged what we could of that database.
Think of it as Item # for the time being.  If it's a 20-, it's truly an IWM item.
Fixing that would be pretty involved, so I don't know when (if) it will happen.

Short answer at the moment is you generally can't see everyone's minis at once in order of posting.
That request has come up a couple of times, and is on the long-term "to-do" list.

found this on the last couple pages while searching for thor. Really odd page, maybe left over from the template?

OTOH, it let me find this one, which is actually useful - it's pretty much a new listings page that goes back to the beginning.

Firstly,  I want to say a big sincere "Thank you so much!" for all the effort that went into this site.

Secondly, I love the expansion of canon schemes that can now be posted. I'm in love with several - McIntyre House Guard, and Steel Viper Rho Galaxy, amongst others. Is there any way to get a listing of newly canonised schemes, along the lines of most recently posted minis?

When you click on the Capellan logo link just above their Fleet Assets link on the Capellan Confederation faction page, it takes you to the 5th Sian Dragoons page instead of the Fleet Assets page.

This one is a weird one.  Maybe something in the metadata on the images, and how the site reads it.  Not sure how we're going to fix it yet.

It's a good thought.  We shall ponder.

After further research, it's the metadata that WordPress uses to fill in the title.  On most of our images, that is the same as the file name.  I updated these two to use a more generic name, but I'm sure this will surface and mess with my OCD again soon.

Is there a rhyme or reason to what mechs are painted in certain colors? obviously for the gencon/diorama stuff its somewhat pre-scripted. but for the regular stuff is it an 'assigned' mech and color combo, one or the other, or just paint something good?

In Weirdo's thread about Highlanders paint schemes, we noticed that MWDA Highlanders paint scheme was canonized on the old site but is missing from new site. Error, deliberate change, "can't talk about it", something else?

With the exception of certain projects that have assignments, artists are, generally speaking, free to paint up whatever miniature and unit they wish, so long as all the facets meet the requirements of BattleTech canon.

Checking.
If you hear a small swish of air and feel a pinch in your neck, it was "can't talk about it".

While we are on the topic of what’s official camo colors, what is up with Clan Wolf/Wolf Empire beta galaxy? They are brown and orange in some DA books and nothing since, until the battle of terra diorama where beta galaxy is back in their classic colors.

DA minis weren't big on checking existing canon.
