Interested, but please pull out the numpad as separate kit.

I’ve been thinking about that honestly. IC form shows that 60% of people want the numpad to branch off into its own kit. I’m going to decide after consulting with a vendor, but as of now, it’s going to remain in the main kit.
Any new developments on this? I'd prefer to opt out of numpad if at all possible, saving some money to allocate towards a space bars kit instead.

As others have said, would like to explore monochrome mods as well.

Any thoughts on when GB might start on candy keys?

After seeing the color comparison from GMK Dracula's IC thread I think I like Nord's colours the best but I prefer the monochrome modifiers offered in Dracula. Please consider adding something similar to Nord :D

Would also like monochrome kit, almost a dealbreaker for me without it.

Branch off numpad to separate kit please, who needs it will buy it. This will be probably my first GMK group buy, you got me with the color scheme and the NORDE kit.

This looks super nice, but as some have said, you should remove the numpad from the base set to reduce costs, whoever wants a numpad could buy it separately.
Is there a specific reason you chose muted blue colors for the alphas and their legends...

I can see what you mean. IMO, OP chose to stay 100% true to the color palette, but iy would be interesting to see it with the "usual white gray-ish" as well!

I would love to see a render of that as well!
Maybe make one and see if people like it more?
Unless he chose the colors deliberately like that of course.

It would still be 100% true to the color palette, I would have just preferred the Snow Storm instead of the Frost colors from the Nord theme for the legends.

I think this is too Oblivion, but would like to see it anyway.

Suggestion:

The base kit supports ISO, but supports properly neither US ISO or UK ISO: for US ISO, the R3 \| key is missing (there's a #~ in its place); for UK ISO, only two out of the six needed symbol/number keycaps are present (R3 #~ and R4 \| --- missing are R1 `¬ , R1 2" , R1 3£ , R3 '@).

My recomendation (obdis.: WDIKAA) is to replace that one R3 #~ key in the base kit with a \| and call it done for US ISO support. Then expand NORDE support to NORDEUK and put all the missing UK ISO keys there.

Also, add a numpad comma key to the NORDEUK kit because commas. :cool:

Exactly. I would think it would add a bit of pop, while still being somewhat understated with how muted the colors are. I'd be super interested to see what it could look like in renders, because I feel like it would be so sick to have that muted purple or blue.

This. So many GMK kits include very strange quasi-UK R3 and R4 keys when there's already ISO-style US layouts, particularly popular with Apple keyboards in Europe. Would love to see more backslash in the right place. :D

Indeed. I took a look at the kits as they stand now, and it calls my attention the following:

1) The Norde kit states "The NorDeUk kit adds support for these languages: Norwegian, British, German, Danish.", yet none of the keys specific to the UK English layout is present. AltGr keys aren't present, for that matter, either.

2) The base kit doesn't have complete support for UK English, either; there's R4 \| (good for both US ISO and UK ISO) and R3 #~ key (the only UK-specific keycap), but the rest is missing.

My suggestion is simple: in the main kit, replace the R3 #~ key with an R3 \| key (keeping unaltered the number of keys in the base kit) and then make a choice as to whether GMK Nord's international kit will be Norde or NordeUK (if the latter, then add the six keys needed for this: R1 , R1 2", R1 , R3 '@, R3 #~... and the oft-forgotten R1 4$€ key).

I mentioned it this time around because the rest of the Norde kit is not shy of adding tertiary legends for the rest of the keycaps.
