I assume wrong categories can be reported here?

Like https://camospecs.com/listing/sunder-sd1-0-7/
Labeled Sunder 20-665 but i'm pretty sure this is the Sunder resculpt 20-462.
Despite modifications, comparing legs and chest detail really makes me question it is the original Sunder.

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?

The Northwind Highlanders entry was updated to include the missing information.

Small heads up:  The Mercenaries faction page has become unwieldy.  We will be looking to split that in two.  Additionally, Wolf's Dragoons will be split into multiple units (likely a parent plus one for each regiment, but other sub-units are being discussed).

Mercenaries split completed.  Wolf's Dragoons still pending.

Noticed that the Dire Wolf A posted today (2-23-2022) has a map on the page.

In the Solaris Stables page, Blue Fist Stables has Bromley Stables' logo.

Just because it's my historical OCD getting the better of me:

The logo description for Snord's Irregulars (https://camospecs.com/unit/snords-irregulars/) is incorrect.

There exists no coin called a "buffalo quarter." It should be a "buffalo nickle" or an "eagle quarter" (technically, the second is the reverse of the "Standing Liberty" Quarter type 1 of 1916-1917).

Yet, the Snord's Irregulars have one as their logo.  Turning Points 3039 Vega shows it, and it's clearly labeled as "quarter dollar" on one side, and a buffalo on the other.
I don't know if it's an in-universe joke, or divergent history.

It doesn't have to be either -- it's entirely possible the Buffalo Quarter is a product of the period between the present day and the dissolution of the American polity.

What has been pictured are two different coins: The "flying eagle" quarter and the Buffalo/Indian head nickel. They seem to be used interchangeably. The text is from a sourcebook that would need to be errata'd.

TP:3039 Vega effectively did that.

I see that the Scorpion Empire has been added to the list of factions covered on the CSO website.

Are there any plans to include a sub-section for Hellion Keshik, based on the paint scheme in the unit description on page 4 of their Spotlight On... volume?

Also, both SO:HK and Operational Turning Points: Hanseatic Crusade note the existence of a "Seeker Keshik", which was created at around the same time Chi Galaxy was re-named to Seeker Galaxy. It is a Supernova Trinary assigned to protect the Clan's Loremaster. Might there be an opportunity to work up an appropriately distinct paint scheme (and/or logo) for this particular unit?

Further, SO:HK refers to a new (post-Hanseatic Crusade) "Eta Galaxy"; six Clusters of mostly (ex-)Hansa freeborn warriors, akin to how Omega Galaxy was formed to incorporate Castilian and Umayyad freeborns after the initial Goliath Scorpion conquest of Nueva Castile. Might it be possible to work up a new colour scheme and logo for that unit in turn?

The short answer on adding those units is not right now, but they will hopefully be added at some point. 

CSO maintains an internal list of units that need to be added to our site.  We also have a list of products we have completed data-mining and which ones still need data-mining so that the unit list is as comprehensive as we can make it. 
Neither Hanseatic Crusade nor SO: Hellion Keshik have been completely data-mined yet.

Also of note, CSO doesn't usually design logos, just schemes.

Thank you for your feedback.

Hopefully the Scorpions aren't too far down the list of factions-to-be-datamined-for - and that someone cooks up a suitable set of unit logos for the folks at CSO to make use of.

Currently, there is not.  While we do hope to add one in the future, at the moment all I can say is that there is no canon scheme for the Rim Worlds fleet.  Sorry.

Apologies 00Dawg but that may not be true. There is a scheme given for the RWR navy in Field Report 2765: Periphery, stating on page 18...

Quote
Vessels of the Rim Worlds Navy are painted
a dark blue-gray on the dorsal surface and a
light gray on the ventral surfaces, blending
where the colors meet. Some captains have
taken to painting shark’s jaws to the bows
or even adding a light gray mottling or tiger
striping to the dorsal surface.
In addition, each ship sports a unique
heraldic shield design incorporating the
ship’s name, hull number and a specific
species of shark (depending on the vessel
class): great white (battleship), tiger (cruiser),
bull (destroyer), hammerhead (frigate) and
mako (corvette)
"Well, I do, Marcus, and rule number one of the MAC has always been that the man with the plan leads. If we get shot up, I'm the first one to get my ticket punched. There are no flags in the MAC."
"And there never will be," Barton said, nodding his head in agreement.

"You guys are facing a freaking Shadow Division! These guys have strict policies against playing fair!"

"I don’t care. Kill them. I planned the defense so I know it will work. If they claim otherwise, they’re cowards. Any step back is a betrayal of me, and saying they don’t have enough men is just an excuse for incompetence and disloyalty. Tell the Krypteia to do it if you’re too soft but get it done." -Emperor Stefan Ukris Amaris I

Fleet assets never seem to be a priority with the main fanbase, but i was a little shocked they didn't even have some ground forces.

Bishop Steiner's cockpit painting guide with info on cockpit locations on the new CGL minis has been added to the CSO site under the Other Stuff dropdown.  Thanks to he and Troy Starrett for putting that together, and Bishop for letting us host it.
