Quick word on kitting: Yes, there is no way around it, there are a lot of kits, but:

۞ don't let sheer number of kits discourage you, there are basically 14 different kits (40s, Alphas, Colevrak, Ergo, French, ISO, Mac, Modifiers, North, Novelties, Numpad, Ortho, South and Spacebars), if you want a better visual representation of those kits, you can head over to Geekhack; and

۞ alpha + modifiers is enough to cover any standard layout from 60% to TKL, including 65% and 75% (which costs €90 (EU) | £79 (UK) | $87 (NA) | $118 (CA) | $85 (Asia)).

FAQ

* What colors will you be using?
Before you guys check the kits, I wanted to mention the colors I’ll be using here:
White: WS2
Black: RAL 000 15 00

Why not CR just like GMK Monochrome was? Simply because I got informed that it was impossible. I will aim for the darkest black possible (and I do think RAL 000 15 00 is quite nice).

* Why should I buy Monochrome and not Refined?

Refined is a really good set, I've said it countless times and will say it again because it's true. That said, Monochrome and Refined have differences worth noting:
۞ Different whites (WS2)
۞ Difference in kitting:
   ※ Wider compatibility in Monochrome's modifiers kit
   ※ Icon Ergo kit
   ※ Stand alone ISO UK, North, South
۞ Wider choices in Alphas
۞ Different font (which I feel is the bigger differentiating point - GMK vs KAT font)
۞ Different icons (which ties up to the resemblance (or lack thereof) to GMK)

As a lot of things in our hobby, it's all a matter of preference and whether you pick this or Refined next month, you are making a wise choice :)

* Where can I get the icons you used?
Ping me, I'll send you the updated ones used for KAT HFO, Monochrome and Iron :)




Thanks

OCM for his help with the original icons, the hiragana alphas and allowing me to run the WoB variant;
Konstantin for this help with the icons, the arabic, cyrillic, zhuyin and hangul font and for discussing kit updates with me;
FatBoyCarney for helping me and listening to me rambling all the time;
Manzel for the awesome renders; and
All the vendors that accepted to run this keyset despite the huge amount of kits.

Will you get better prices from the manufacturer as more people join or is the price what is listed on the original post and it won't change?

is the unit count is the number of keys?



Quite excited to see what artisans we get  :thumb:

I have to say that it is you, I see the extra B both in the BoW (https://i.imgur.com/fiaEr1u.png) and WoB (https://i.imgur.com/oKMV0wL.png) kits.

Will you get better prices from the manufacturer as more people join or is the price what is listed on the original post and it won't change?
These prices are final. Previously Massdrop/Drop used such system, but they gave up to because of its complexity and costs. Nowadays group buys start with a pretty high MOQ, so the quantity discount is calculated into the price from the beginning.

is the unit count is the number of keys?
Number of key surfaces, so a Backspace is 2, a Caps Lock is 1.5.

I think it was regarding, say, a hiragana B in the spacebar kit to go with the hiragana alphas. In which case, indeed, there is no extra B key per language, I didn't want to add another 5 keys to the spacebar kit or make the alpha kits more expensive for everyone; I had in mind that people would use the blank 1u key in the spacebar kit.

Indeed, on top of that, PP changed their policy last year, iirc, and fees don't get refunded when a vendor refunds (not sure how it works with partial refunds, but still). We started with the second tier MOQ and worked to get low prices across the board for everyone :)

Ah, I see. I forgot that your set has extensive non-Latin language support.

Quick update on this sunny sunday (for me at least). We are almost at MOQ, it's safe to say that all kits will be made. Deskmats and the salvun keys need a bit of love but I'm working on things to get them produce no matter what (I know the salvun key is not listed on zFrontier, they have been a little slow at updating things over there recently, I'm working on that as well)

I'll be giving away an Alpha+modifiers+deskmat bundle on my discord later today (at around 10.00 PM CEST) so feel free to join us there - Join the discord by clicking the image bellow:

Just found out about this a couple days ago, and seems like something I'm interested in and will grab, but hopefully this isn't too late to point out (and I see that your prior sets also do this, so maybe it's just stylistic? Hope I'm not being out of line.): your icon for the "Option" key is upside down. The small short/separated line should be on top, with the longer continuous/angled line going from top to bottom, as seen here (http://"https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Option_key").

If this can be changed/corrected this late in the process, that would be cool. Not a deal-breaker for me, but just something I thought I would mention, because I didn't see it brought up previously.

Welcome here and thank you for reaching out about this :) This has been done on purpose as it's meant to be the Alt key for windows, I wanted someting a little different than the Mac version yet similar enough not to shock Apple users :)

The error message shown was "There was an error adding this card".. this is the same for different credit cards. Paypal and ApplePay don't work either.
I did make purchases before and after using the above various payment modes with no issues. But its just zFrontier that I am not able to process the payment.

I hope the Novelties kit will look good with KAT Refind, because that is what I'm aiming for.

Will these ever run again?

Probably not for a while given the current lead time is around 7-8 months and then vendors need to ship to everyone; this will probably not run again for another year I'd say, and most likely not in the form it is right now :)

Is there a possibility I can pick up a BoW (and/or WoB) Icon/Text Ortho kit? I forgot to pick one up.

I'm in the same situation. BoW Icon Ortho. Hoping to avoid aftermarket flipper-fest. >_<

Unfortunately I didn't pick one up myself so I can't help you guys out here :( 16 extras Ortho kits were picked up by vendors, so there will be extras, hopefully you can get in on those :)



Got samples in on Friday and finally had some time to take a picture or two:
