Oh, I'm not upset at all lol Or looking for credit, even. Just the opposite. I was pretty excited to see them in some format beyond photoshopped minis and the paint swatches we use in MegaMek! And that someone liked them!

I actually have a ton of them. They all stemmed from camo swatches used in MegaMek for the Dominion campaign in my signature. Here's a link to a ZIP file with a bunch of them enclosed. You're welcome to use any you wish. I did one for the Fusiliers and a few unit-specific Fusilier colors, but nothing for the Legionnaires.

Thanks! I'll have a look later :thumbsup:

BRADIGUS' incredible art and redesign of the OSTSOL BattleMech allowed me to produce this template for repaints. Thank you BRADIGUS for letting me use your artwork.

Thank you JustinKase for pointing this out to me from the Kickstarter ...

*Camospecs: A Unit Art Manual PDF. The BattleTech community is fantastic, filled with great energy and passion that can lead to fantastic projects. One of those is the Unit Art Compendium, created by the community for MechWarrior Online. Our Camospecs: A Unit Art Manual PDF will be patterned after that amazing project. It will include a variety of paint schemes for various combat commands from the various factions, appropriate to each design, along with text discussing those details. This PDF will dove-tail into the Camospecs: A Guide to Faction Paint Schemes from the $1,750,000 Stretch Goal; each time a new How To Paint guideline is added to that PDF, it will correspond directly to a camo schemes from this Camospecs: A Unit Art Manual. WARRIOR and above will receive all PDF updates for free.*

A couple of points ...
A) the link included leads to the very first PDF version of the UCC. It's heavily outdated.
B) Even the latest version of the PDF is outdated by now. It's nice to browse through but yeah ... https://unitcolorcompendium.com/ is where you find up-to-date informations if you desire to.
C) It's title is Unit Color Compendium - BattleTech Unit Color Palettes and Paint Schemes (now: A Database for BattleTech Unit Color Palettes and Paint Schemes)
D) It's NOT just for MWO but rather for every hobbyist involved with BattleTech.

A feature much requested ... the Miniature Gallery is now online. Thanks to @col.matthew.steiner.
It’s pretty empty at this moment but I’ve written to many people and asked them to contribute.
Hopefully this will demonstrate that I am determined to make this happen.
However, success depends on you guys.
Cheers!

Is something wrong with the site? I'm getting 404 errors.

Over time I ran into multiple issues running/hosting the UCC site. They’ve accumulated to the point that I decided to take the site down and figure things out. I do not know how long this will take but I keep you updated. If you’re working on anything for the site I suggest you wait until you hear further news. Apologies and thanx for understanding.

That makes since. Since the address actually goes to a 404 page though I wonder if he could be talked into doing a flat placeholder page.

Sorry everyone, I'm hardly around here. However, today I bear good news for you.

The long waiting time is over and the UCC is online again! Thank you for your patience!

There’s been a change. The site and project has been transfered to @Insaniac99. The step was necessary and the main thing is that the site is accessible yet again. I’ll will continue to assist and help out on the project.

Please note that there might be some hick-ups like missing images here and there. We'll take care of those along the way.

IMPORTANT: If you contributed and you have an issue with your content now beeing used in this way, please let either Insaniac or me know and we’ll remove it!

This is also the time, where we’d like to reach out to find a small amount of trustworthy, reliable and overall determined administrators to join. We’ll firstly consider those who already contributed but if you feel like you want to become a member of the team, please let us know, too.

Enjoy! Cheers,
Insaniac99 + LK

p.s. for better communication you can find me on my discord!
