[IC] GMK Frost Witch 2

OFFICIAL GROUP BUY THREAD

GMK Frost Witch 2



Hi everyone! Adam still loves Emilia.

After deliberation with the designer of GMK Frost Witch, megaforce, we would like to let you all know that a rerun of Frost Witch is going to happen soon! The original GMK Frost Witch run was over 2 years ago, and since there seems to be a pretty significant demand we thought it a good time for this set to be rerun. There are some pretty drastic kitting changes from the first set, as well as usage of the updated hiragana legends. We invite you to participate in this buy, and hope you'll enjoy it.

The GB will be running from August 19 to September 16.

These are some pictures that I've asked of from the Switchmod Keyboards discord for use in this IC. While the colors remain the same, the legends shown in these pictures will not be accurate to the legends that we will be using on the group buy.

I'd like to extend a big thanks to Adam, the designer of the set. Oblotzky, who did the renders. I'd also like to thank OneCreativeMind, as he designed the original novelties that we will be reprising for Frost Witch 2. Lastly, everyone else, there are a lot of you, thanks for the support.

If you'd like to keep up with this set and Switchmod Keyboards' future projects, my discord is at https://discord.gg/invite/8TkjXTr. Thank you!


Kit developments can still be made at this time, we trimmed down and modified the kits heavily but any worthwhile caps that we overlooked could still possibly be added - please let us know.

Seems odd to me to have so many spacebars but not include any 2.75u to go with the 2.25u ones.

Unless those 3.00u ones are mislabeled.

Checked the KLE, they are mislabeled, my bad. They should be 2.75u.

we'd like to keep broad 1800 and tsangan compatibility, also adam likes altgr.

and excess of spacebars?

We trimmed our Spacebar kit from GMK Frost Witch, and reintroduced it into Frost Witch 2's Base, as well as the accents. The new base is an amalgamation of all 3 kits with more underused keys being removed.

unfortunately no nordeuk at this time. If the demand for 6u space actually becomes more visible we could probably add it - It's just that we never really see anyone use it aside from the 5 people who really like (true) MX HHKB.

also without nordeuk I won't buy (I've typed on blanks since 2008 so not that I need it, but ffs if there's going to be lettering on my board it should at least reflect reality), so -1 for 6u space as well :-P

Super understandable - I personally just can't swing it most times, with the amount of sales the nordeuk kits get.

There have been an influx of 6u MX HHKB boards recently (AKB Vero and Baul's Type-B) for which 6u support would be nice. Also we finally have good MX sliders for topre in the des option. Would definitely like to see a 6u spacebar option offered, especially since 1.5u supers are already being included in base.

since you are going hard on spacebars, i'd add an alpha color 6u.

i personally wouldnt run that spacebar kitting in base.. but its unique for todays standards and your price is fine  :thumb:

glad to see this set come back. maybe ill grab a kit.

The last time we tried Latin, in a market that seems stronger than our current market, it failed. We are hesitant about trying it again, we see very little actual demand for it.

even zam has proper 40s now you're the one stuck in the past, gramps
Seems like you shifted from over including caps locks to bars this time
Your prime e picture is a nice way to showcase how awful this set will look on smaller boards
One off row key and four incorrect legends, but it is imperative this set has two stepped caps

I understand this, as a lot of people buy this set as a weeb set and want the hiragana sublegends, but I feel that as Frost Witch R1 shipped out, a lot more people saw the colorway in real pictures instead of renders, and the set gained a lot of popularity, so hopefully this time around there can be more support for the latin kit.

You should add minimal 40s support to base. You only need:

R2 1.75U Backspace
R3 1.25U Tab
R3 1.5U Enter

why the 2x1u ctrl, alt gr,

we'd like to keep broad 1800 and tsangan compatibility, also adam likes altgr.

Nobody uses 1800s with full 1u bottom row. Even if they did, you need a 6u spacebar for it which the set doesn't have. IMO double 1u Control is pretty useless. I think a 2nd 2.25u Shift for 660-esque layouts, a 2u Shift for 60s with arrows or a double zero would be useful to more people.

Seriously consider adding a 6u spacebar into the base kit since you're trying to make it all inclusive.
Nevermind, you did it as I was writing it. Good stuff!
