Received my set yesterday. The accent (teal) and mods (gray) look good. I really wish the gray was a bit more washed out like the renders, but atleast they’re not navy blue in person which some photos suggested.

The alphas on the other hand ruin the entire set. They’re green. Light mint green and nowhere near acceptable deviation from the renders which were cream with a very slight hint of green. Lesson learned I suppose to never join a GB without color codes since what was showed to us did not align with the designer’s vision. In hindsight, the reason for not wanting to share color codes should have been a red flag to me.

Going on mechmarket if anyone is interested.

The set went through so many different samples / colours in the sampling process that I just didn't see the point in keeping that constantly updated. I definitely didn't intentionally hold out on what codes were used or anything, just never felt the need I guess? Especially since the colours are physical booklets that don't translate exactly to the comparisons you find online.

If anyone is still interested, the green gray and dark blue RAL. RAL 160 80 20, RAL 240 20 22, RAL 260 40 10 (I'm not 100% sure these are the final colours I went with but this is the only list I can find in my emails) and the blue was colour matched to a gift bag I found in a craft store, since the blue was proving to be really tough.

Sorry to hear you're not satisfied with the set, but I do appreciate your support regardless :)

On an semi related note: If anyone got their Nightcaps Necro caps and is interested in trading for a different sculpt, I got an Idyllwild (I think I spelled that right..) and would love a Menloe, either Eggface, Skullthulu or Fugthulu. Just not interested in the blank unless that was a group with another cap?

Happy new year :)

Is there a place where we can see all these different artisan versions?
This is the one I ended up with.

GMK matched the colors very good to the RAL codes, but the codes doesn't match the final color renders at all...I'm very disappointed by the designers color decision.

Agreed. That green RAL is way too green... but the keycaps match damn near perfectly!

Finally got a shipping notification from zFrontier!

EDIT:
So I received my set today. The mod and accent keys are OK, but the alphas were rather disappointing :/
I would either re-use the mods and mix-in a different set of alphas or sell the set entirely. Hmm.
