[IC] GMK WoB Red Cyrillic - GB October 1st
« on: Sun, 25 July 2021, 09:04:29 »


WoB featuring UV-printed red Cyrillic sublegends

IC form




Colors: CR/WS1 + P3


This set will feature new set of Cyrillic legends that Alexbarb and me put together. They are very similar to latin GMK/Cherry in the sense of typeface. The idea was to make as accurate as possible Cyrillic. In addition to most noticable legend changes (У, Ж, Л), Cyrillic was completely redone from the ground up.
Sublegends on R (К), T (Е), Y (Н), [ (Х), D (В), F (А), H (Р), J (О), Z (Я), C (С), V (M), B (И), N (Т) as well as sublegends on num row will be using original GMK (Cherry) font since glyphs are the same. Rest are custom outlines with original latin legends in mind.

Huge thanks to Alexbarb for make this happened!

Thanks for running this. I am in.
A couple of suggestions for your consideration:
As you said, WoB is constantly running, so we would have the icon+text mods already. Will you consider a set of icon only mods?
Also, can you consider the 1.25u bottom row in R5 instead?
Finally, any plans for a spacebar kit, including 2x 3u spacebars? Thanks!

Busy sets with sublegends doesn't looks good with icons for most of the time for me personally. And I'm a fan of icon + text.

Also, can you consider the 1.25u bottom row in R5 instead?
A fever peope would use that, so I decided to not include ansi bottom row R5 support. It will just make base more expensive.

Finally, any plans for a spacebar kit, including 2x 3u spacebars? Thanks!
Recent WoB sets run with split spacebars support in base or as a separate kit. I want to keep it simple.

Thanks for the replies. I personally think icon only mods are cleaner when there are sublegends for the alphas. But respect the designer's choices. Happy to support.
Lastly, pls consider an SEA vendor like Monokei or IlumKB :)

I liked how ttom include 2.25u and 2.75u spacebars in the base for Cyrillic beige and wob that ran not long ago. It’s an added incentive for incentive for me.

I'd be curious to how many here -don't- have WoB in some format and whether this could be an alpha kit.

In for sure, please get UK ISO into the base kit and lets get a Rama or similar to make this.  I think a lot of people will love to have this so there may be enough support for a lot of kits.

Pretty much. It's pretty standard to respect the designers and not run similar sets, but originative isn't really a designer, and wob with sublegends isn't really a design, it's just something that is extremely rare right now and this runner is making it available since originative hasn't in several years IIRC.

Yes and no. Yes in the sense that I'm using the same idea. No 'cause this set will have correct cyrillic legends compare to what was before (old cherry ones).

I have similar thoughts.  I have the Inifiinikey Dark Cyrillic sets in blue and purple and I really like them.  Interested to see what GMK can bring.

Any reason to go with this over tripleshot JTK?

Sent from my GM1911 using Tapatalk



Not the TS, but I have used and sold JTK tripleshot alphas before (JTK suited assassin). I find the keycaps to be inferior to GMK in terms of how they feel when typing. It feels more hollow/cheap (sorry, may not be the best word here).

And I think GMK UV printing is pretty good. I own GMK keycaps that are UV printed and they hold up well.

Looking forward to the GB already!

I used the tripleshot Zen and loved the quality, hence I had asked..ofc it's upto the runner what manu they'd like to use but given GMK delays I would think twice before entering GBs..

JTK iirc have only old cyrillic molds, and this set using new correct legends, so going with JTK will require new set of molds. Also I'm personally not satisfied with the quality of JTK (especially legends).



As you may notice, I took some feedbak and adjusted kitting accordingly. That includes: full R5 bottom row, adding numpad as well as 1800 support (numpad "5" will be only nipple), 2u spacebar will be added later. There is some changes pending for the sublegends, currently waiting to set up the details.

A lot of people asked for icon only mods. I'm personally big fan of icons + text but I can see desire for icons only. They will be available as separate kit (base still stays with icon + text).

This is ****ing rad! Love the way the black white and red look together.

Please add two 1.5u Super keys and a second 1u Alt key either to the base kit or an extension kit to add support for macOS 7u and HHKB layouts. Responded on the IC Form too.

Updated base kit
Thanks for feedback everyone, I tried to consider everything and changed kitting accordingly.

Base kit changes:
- as previously stated, bottom row switched to full row 5 as well as added numpad and 1800 support (numpad "5" will be only nipple style) + updated devide and multiply symbols
- added missing 2u spacebar
- removed front print on Print and Pause
More


Added icon mods kit
There was a lot of requests for icon mods. Icon + text is still my prefered style of mods but I can see desire for icons only.
More


Sublegends update
Even though T0mb3ry's set of Cyrillic legends are allowed for anyone to use, we couldn’t reach an agreement regarding of changing the legends mentioned previously to make them more accurate.
This set will feature new set of Cyrillic legends that Alexbarb and me put together. They are very similar to latin GMK/Cherry in the sense of typeface. The idea was to make as accurate as possible Cyrillic. In addition to most noticable legend changes (У, Ж, Л), Cyrillic was completely redone from the ground up.
Sublegends on R (К), T (Е), Y (Н), [ (Х), D (В), F (А), H (Р), J (О), Z (Я), C (С), V (M), B (И), N (Т) as well as sublegends on num row will be using original GMK (Cherry) font since glyphs are the same. Rest are custom outlines with original latin legends in mind.

Huge thanks to Alexbarb for make this happened!



GB tentatively starts October 1st and will run for a month at $130 (500 MOQ) on Space Cables. Regional proxies will be announced later.

GB tentatively starts October 1st and will run for a month at $135 (500 MOQ) on Space Cables. Regional proxies will be announced later.

I'm assuming the base kit render you posted uses the aforementioned new Cyrillic sublegends. If that is the case, then good job, because all of them look correct. I am noticing an improvement in consistency over the regular doubleshot legends used in sets such as Yuri.

That being said, one small issue that still remains is that the Х glyph is a tad too narrow. This has been the case in every Cyrillic GMK set so far due to the glyph being repurposed from the Latin X legend. Metrically, К, У and Х are usually the same width in neo-grotesque sans typefaces, but here you can definitely tell that the Х is narrower. Since you now have an opportunity to fix that, I recommend doing just that.

Also, purely typographically speaking, Latin K and Cyrillic К are not exact homoglyphs: the Cyrillic traditionally has a curved rather than a straight arm, and sometimes both the arm and leg are curved. This is noticeable in Verdana, the default typeface used here on Geekhack. However, making the arm/leg straight is a very common stylistic choice in modern sans typefaces, so I'm happy that you chose to go that route as opposed to e.g. following the example of Arial Rounded Bold (cf. the К glyph in IFK Dark Cyrillic).

I would like to ask you to consider adding R3 PgUp, R4 PgDn to the base kit for 65%/75% support. These keys are popular choices on 65% keyboards, both enthusiast (especially recent ones with corner blockers), as well as those intended for the mass market (e.g. Drop Alt, Keychron K6, RK68, Durgod, Akko etc.). With 65% being as popular a layout as it is, I think these keys would be worth including. If I didn't already have them from Drop WoB, I know I would like to get them from this set.

By the way, I think the fact that you included System/Sys keys and icon mods in CR/WS1 is really cool. Especially cause Emir's WoB icon extension kit has been so hard to track down lately. Very cool — I am definitely tempted to throw my money your way.

I'm aware of that but we decided to left those legends as it is, and there is reasons for it. X also might look a bit narrower in renders compare to real GMK one because we don't have original Cherry legends on hands.

The kitting is final, sorry.

Alright, no worries! I don't mind it in Yuri, so I'd probably notice it even less here. Still, I'd be interested in knowing your reasons, if you don't mind sharing for posterity's sake.

These keys are popular choices on 65% keyboards, both enthusiast (especially recent ones with corner blockers), as well as those intended for the mass market (e.g. Drop Alt, Keychron K6, RK68, Durgod, Akko etc.). With 65% being as popular a layout as it is, I think these keys would be worth including. If I didn't already have them from Drop WoB, I know I would like to get them from this set.

By the way, I think the fact that you included System/Sys keys and icon mods in CR/WS1 is really cool. Especially cause Emir's WoB icon extension kit has been so hard to track down lately. Very cool — I am definitely tempted to throw my money your way.

Edit: Блин я только что заметил, что раннер русский. Молодец)

Thank you for the feedback. I can tell you know what you talking about but would like to point on some details.


You can clearly see that X in Latin/Cherry are narrow. In terms of geometry, X (Cyrillic) and X (Latin) should be the the same in all of the fonts.

Verdana and Arial not the best examples of Cyrillic. Arm or leg (or both) can be curved or straight. It's acceptable both ways. In modern sans serif fontfaces they are straight and repeats the Latin. In this case it's more clean solution rather.

In image you linked Я can have a curved leg, it's acceptable to use it with straight leg R. But that's the matter for a separate talk.

We were trying to mimic Cherry font, that's why Я and R have the same shape, same goes for К and Ж (that made out of K). If we go back to IFK image, there is another thing to note: in Cyrillic Б, Ъ, Ь, Ы are made out of Latin B. Which is wrong. Bottom semicircle should be larger. Instead, it's better to make those letters out of inverted P.

Finally somebody carrying about Russian lettering instead of replicating that abomination of a font that's found even on the expensive GMK sets. Really happy to see Д, Ц and Щ aligned properly. Keep up good work! Waiting for the group buy. Салют

Thanks for noticing. You are talking about the baseline of the font. And this is important. But we've rethought a lot more

Just want to confirm this is running in Oct. originative just launched a rerun of their cryllic red, I do prefer this due to the R5 and updated legends (and presumably better pricing)

Curious to see what the prices are for the kits. If it's good, or even just okay, ill be down for both base and icon mods.

Look like kitting is done, but I would have loved NordeUK kit as well.
Maybe even something like a RU-DE kit as I proposed but OP ignored :(

I don’t think there are any custom colors and very few new molds. I don’t know UV sub legend pricing and it is a chonky base kit, so I’d imagine the set would retail somewhere between 120 and 140.

Edit: knowing GMK these days, I wouldn’t be surprise if they tack on hidden fees though.

Edit x2:

GB starts October 1st with base price of $130 (NA)

Nailed it

Eta for Oco Cyrillic is still Oct 2022, so their decision to run another round for $50 more doesn't make much sense

One more thing I wanted to share about the sublegends.

Once GB is over and preparations done on GMK side, this set of legends will be open for everyone to use in their projects. That also includes: modifying particular legends, taking them apart, alternating (for this, you need souce files which I can provide upon request), use separate legends in combination with the new legends set. I would like to open-source the file completely, but since this legends set uses glyphs from Cherry font that GMK put together on their side, it will only contain legends that made from the ground up (around 20), so there is no point for that unless you want to modify something (for which you can request file from me).

If anybody need renders with new sublegends, please reach out Marco (Marco#8888 on Discord, https://marcofriedrichs.com/).



Thanks again everyone for support! Looking forward for this to happen.
