I remember the IC had mentioned a cap on sets (to 500 I think), is that still the case or was that changed for the GB?

The set has since moved to an unlimited GB. There is no cap :)

Who is the keycap manufacturer?

The manu's name has not been disclosed but is a manu that is said to have worked with Cherry before and has never made custom designed keysets for the hobby. This is their first project. I have been working with IV Works for the past year to improve the quality of the caps before running the GB!

When asking $120 for a keycap set, I think that the manufacturer information being disclosed is a minimum acceptable standard.  We have seen so many issues with new manufacturers over the past couple years that it's hard to trust a group buy that refuses to disclose this information.  Doubly so for a set that is full reverse dye sub given the problems that even major manufacturers like ePBT, Keycreative and Infinikey have had with reverse dye sub quality control and lead times.

Re: [GB] IV Ashes | zFrontier added as CN vendor!

Small Update:

I was able to get ahold of zFrontier to get them to run the set in the CN/Asia region! I will make sure to bump the thread again when they get everything going for the set on their sites!

What is that Alice-like keyboard in the renders? Is that for sale anywhere? The combo looks amazing!

Sample looks great  :thumb:
Nice numbers as well. Grats (& hopefully I can join by the end of the GB), Tyson!

Will there be extras available for those who missed the group buy, btw?
