Any chance to have it without the pad-printed sublegends?
Moar accented keys or rgb-like modifiers would be dope IMO

Nice, I like the green sublegends on the numpad and the dedication to the retro beige.
However if you're going true retro, I feel like you should have the Windows logo and Menu icon instead of the Super and Fn key, but that's probably not possible.

The extension kit is eye-catching with the relegendables, windowed keys and the BAE, but who the hell has a board that uses that BAE key? (sorry I have limited knowledge of the vintage boards).

BAE = COP

That said, thank you for accurate Runic sublegends, unlike that other kit... Please consider NorDe.

Love the idea! Since in the name there is the word "retro", it would be great to have OG Cherry logo and R5 bottom row :)

I believe it was for vintage boards like model f etc

Any board that supports ISO supports BAE. You're in luck!

Re: [IC] GMK Retro Runic | NorDe Added!

I've added accent 6.25u and 7.00 bars to the spacebar kit. I personally would not use them but they have been heavily requested and therefore I decided to add them.



I've also added a NorDe kit which isn't huge but supports a good amount of European layouts.



Please note that there should be an extra Z and Y without runes in case you would like to use this kit but not with this set, this way it fits most other beige sets. I am working on rerendering it now.

Is R5 out of question? Thought it would fit the retro theme.

Wouldn't it make sense to move all the ISO specific keys to the NorDE kit?
Cheaper base set, and most of the NorDE buyers would want the ISO keys, I imagine.
Counter arguments would be appreciated!

Note that the Dudeship is from UK.
Which is a region that uses ISO too (there are also multiple non-ANSI regions besides NORDE too)
As an ANSI user, I'm all for splitting ISO out of base kits if possible to reduce costs personally, but given GMK kit MOQ structure, this isn't really viable.

Counter counter argument:

There might be people interested in the NorDE kit (used with OG keycaps) that are not interested in the base, meaning you can piggyback the ISO-keys on the NorDE kit, saving base-kit customers some money. NorDE customers wouldn't have to pay more for their kits than they had to before (considering they would have bought basekit and NorDE), right? Because we're not adding a kit, and we're not adding keys.

Usually the international kits have the worst sales numbers, so why not make the NorDE kit better as a standalone option to boost sales? It does have the colors of other sets that lack these specific keys, making it an attractive option for people with OG sets on their hands.

You can use any board that supports the ISO enter with the BAE
