I love the grid 600 render where the alphas look midnight blue and the modifiers are a lighter blue. Not a huge fan of the yellow on black modifiers. I would buy that whole setup in the grid 600 render if I could.

This looks really neat. I am certainly getting that one. I like how it matches with black cases and the desk mat.

The deskpad is cool.
Have you considered about changing the font of the Chinese word.
It would make this more vivid and powerful.

Hey!

I made that render. In it, the keys reflect a lot of neon blue light. It's more of an artistic render to show off the theme.

This one has more natural lighting:

Been finalizing kits to get ready for launch, This is the current plan for the kits. Sorry for the novelties just being text, I just used shorthand to represent them in KLE.

Renders are too come as well, needed to get kits figured out before I could get those done.

Also looking to launch in a few weeks, so keep a look out for more posts!

Did you remove R3 PgUp and R4 PgDn on purpose, or was that a mistake in the new kit render?

Those were part of the group that was cut out to try and reduce the number of caps. I can't remember what boards needed those, if you could let me know I may add them back in if it would be worth it.

They get used in the right column of some 65% boards.  The Tada68, the Massdrop Alt, and the WhiteFox, for example.

Ah, Okay. I put them in there originally and couldn't remember why I did so I took them out but that was a mistake it seems, lol. Added them back in so don't worry.

Update:
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

Changed up kits a bit to give better support. And wanted to announce that the GB will be running very soon, Date is June 14th as I need to get the final set of renders in and ready for the GB launch and get all accessories ready as well.

Base kit: Now has the R3 PgUp and R4 PgDn caps added back in.

40's kit: Changed support quite a bit to try and get split space in there so 40's users weren't forced to buy 3 kits. Added full split space support to the kit but the compromise was keeping the accent colored 2U and 1U spacebars in the spacebar kit to keep the size of the 40s kit down as it is already fairly massive.

Spacebar kit: Moved the alpha colored 2u and 1u spacebars to the 40s kit and have duplicate alpha colored 2.25u and 2.75u spacebars for those that need split space support on non-40% boards.

Novelties kit: Added a new Skyline cap to allow for a full set of 4 for either function row or bottom row modifiers.

Glad to hear you love it that much!

Thank you, spent quite a bit of time trying to get it to work as best as I could.

Missed Nautilus so will not miss this set!

In for the base and spacebars.  Not a fan for the current novelty designs honestly, so will pass.  Personally, I love simple/conceptual symbols as the novelties like shoes, skyscrapers, etc.

I will announce when I have the final decision(I am pretty sure I know who, but want to get confirmation before I state anything). But that info will come fairly soon as the goal is to launch this week.

GB is delayed for a few weeks until we can get confirmation from GMK that colors are fine and there will be no issues trying to match. Pantone samples were ordered and I am waiting on them so I can look them over before shipping them to GMK for matching.

Sorry for the late notice but I have no control over this delay.

It seems like some group buys have had better luck getting GMK to match RAL than Pantone.  You might want to consider using RAL.

Main issue with RAL is the reduced color set, there is no equivalent for the blue ribbon or safety yellow, and the closest colors aren't close enough to use. Hence ordering samples and sending them to GMK to go from there.

I can sympathize. I also tried using RAL but the color selection is quite poor in comparison to Pantone. I think that is why GMK can match RAL a bit more easily.

Anyway, this isn't BlindAssassin's first rodeo and he has a good community behind him at TKC so I wouldn't worry about the color matching.

The novelties are just placeholders in those kit images.

Pantone chips are in and look really, really nice. Getting ready to ship them out to GMK right away to get matching feedback and go from there.

Hope everyone is as hyped as I am to get this set going!

Thank You! I really love how the colors look together.

I see artisans are still TBD, any word on which youíre leaning yet on either having or not having them?

At the moment it is mostly just a "Can we get something" as we are trying but have nothing confirmed at the moment, if it doesn't work out then it is what it is.

Have you considered running a NorDeUk kit or adding UK-ISO caps to the base kit?

ISO support will stay as it is in the base kit(only the num row keys missing from support).
