Colors:
For the colors I wanted a simple look that kind of resembles a mountain.
The 4012 is a gray with a hint of purple as to not make this a boring gray set.
The WS2 resembles the Snow and the beautiful Edelweiss, the national Swiss flower.

Thank you so much to Virtual Designworks for the amazing art. It's been an absolute pleasure to work with you and I love what you did!

Keebstuff Kabelmanufaktur (https://www.keebstuff.com/en/c/cables/gmk-alpine-presale)

I'm very happy to announce that I will be working with Keebstuff on an unlimited number of high quality custom cables!
He puts amazing and careful work into each cable and they end up looking fantastic!

The cables will be coiled with the coiled side being Purple and the non coiled side will be white. They will come with LEMO Connectors (Made in Switzerland :D)!

Imperfect Link:
Thanks for the countless blender questions which you answered, the cases you redesigned so they’d be easier to work with and reminding me that I should’ve used texture legends and good keycap geometry. :p

Do you have a photo of a physical color sample, and/or RAL or Pantone colors we can use as a reference? It's hard to tell what color this will be IRL based on the renders.

This is the best image I was able to get. This is in insanely strong lighting and looks a bit oversaturated due to me not having a proffessional camera and having to use my phone.

So that means no vendor won't buy out the NorDeUK kit if it doesn't hit MOQ?

Purchased. Nice set.

Funny thing, even though I live in Canada, I ordered through the American vendor, Kono. For a single set, the total was $50 cheaper and the shipping was $5 cheaper. I understand that this is partly due to the way that taxation and customs works, as well as differences between USPS/Canada Post, but I still found it pretty bizarre.

Ash keebs is und CAD and Kono in USD, I don't understand what you mean exactly? 190 CAD is 149 USD

After shipping and taxes, one base kit from ashkeebs cost me over 250 cad, whereas one set from kono cost me about 205 cad.

Shipping to Toronto from ashkeebs was 25 cad, whereas shipping from kono was 20 cad.

Just found it kind of peculiar.

In my renders and in my geek hack I've always showed that the homing keys will be Barred only and the 2nd pair will have no homing at all (no bar and no scoop). I was never asked until a few minutes ago and apparently everyone just expects them to be scooped? I can still change this (I think) Please vote below. This will affect the F and J and 5 keys that currently have no homing at all.

It's standard practice to have both scoops and bars with GMK, and if you must get rid of one, I think scoops are much more popular. I think you're wasting both your time and participants' time with a poll like this.

Typically Scooped is a given for homing keys, it's also kind of hard to noticed the scooped keys in renders all the time, if you want to run a set without it best practice would be to let the customers know that your only providing barred and no homing for the set. When I discovered GMK Umbra didn't have scooped keys I was quite disappointed. It's one of the reasons why I ended up selling the set.

I never specified scooped keys in the renders, I did specify barred keys in the renders. I thought it was clear enough with the info I gave. I never knew about this standard Practice. I also don't understand why no one asked? I understand that it might be difficult to spot in the renders. Either way I don't think it's a waste of time since the people who bought the set can vote. If it happens to be scooped I'll gladly change it.  :D
Luckily I was told before it was too late!

(Also currently no scoop is leading, obviously it's too early to tell)

People didn't ask because they weren't expecting to have to.

Either way, now there's a vote and if the people don't like it, they can vote! Majority wins.  ;D

I have a couple vintage Cherry boards that don't have homing keys. They aren't great.

Adding the results from my discord and the google form the result ended up being 18-15 in favor for scooped key. I've contacted gmk and it should be worked out soon!

Color matching complete! I approved both colors, they're spot on! Really like how the purple turned out!

Those look amazing! Do you have a GMK set or two in grey or purple we can see in comparison? VoC, Plum, iris, q01, Carbon, oblivion, etc?

I don't own any purple sets sadly. I'll try to find some purple/colored objects you may know to show a comparison.

Which keys are planned to be in the grey color?  Looking at the sample set images, they all appear purple/white to me?

The white keys use grey text. The purple wouldn't have fit!
