Pass. New positioning of legends is incompatibile with all existing keys. It can't complement or extend any existing sets.

Shift keys go in pairs, arrows are full sets. There is no reason to mix and match them, if you will have a full set anyway. Nonsense argument. Your money your call, but your argument is totally flaw.

Is 9009 RAL color matched? Just curious to know how the rounds are going to match up. I have a VIM kit from after R2 but not sure how good GMK's matching is.

9009 is stock GMK colors, even the accents (3B/3C).  So, I'd say pretty darn good.

Nice one! I'm in for one base and one norde after the 25th  :D
Excuse me. I dont see the R5 caps on Modern kits on Dixie mech website. It is correct or not?

The Modern kit doesn't use R5, as stated in OP:
Modern
Want to add a modern look to your set? Or maybe you’re just a fan of the uniform look having only icons on the modifiers gives you? Then this kit is for you! It features icon modifiers for all of the bottom row, escape and 1.75 control while also adding a more modern interpretation of the tab key and caps lock. This kit features a more modern R4 bottom row.

Would it be possible to get a render of the modern kit on a tkl (or anything with an arrow cluster)? I'd like to see how the sp style arrows will look on a board.

Nevermind, I'm blind.

You should check the OP one more time. It shows at least three images where the arrows are included.

That is correct.

I have GMK Nord and Phosphorus as fallback for NorDe, but if this set does not make MOQ, I am not sure if it is possible at all... GMK should lower the MOQ to 50 at least, they could sell 50+ base and addition kits (my humble Milchmädchenrechnung), so at the and of the day they have their profit and we would have our NorDe kits.

If 9009's Norde set would not reach MoQ is very unlikely that any other set's Norde would. Beige is pretty common, thus, if any Norde may reach MoQ is this one.

Quickly trying to remember what I've learnt in secondary school German language lessons - Milchmädchenrechnung - milch is milk, Madchen is girl, right? Rechnung is counting or calculation.
So Milchmädchenrechnung is calculation of milk girl? Milky girl?! Milky milky!!  :)

Indeed, this literally translates to something as "milk maid calculation", it is based on an old tale about a milk transporting girl who already thinks about what she could by from the price of the milk before she sells it, eventually spilling it on the way to the market. It translates to "calculation based on naive assumptions", such as in my case: if GMK would lower NorDe kit MOQ, more people would buy other kits (would they?), what would compensate for the lower MOQ (would it compensate the effort?).

Cool, thanks for explaining it:)
I like these kind of stories of different cultures:)

Yeah, same for Additional kit - 150 is pretty a lot, I hope it will get more attention in next few weeks.
This is an eternal problem of NorDeUK kits...

I've just made a post refering to this GB on the forums of ComputerBase, a german tech site. They have done GMK Group Buys with ISO-DE layouts before, so there might be some people interested in this...

Strong disagree. People can just buy German OG doubleshots and get the same for way less than half the price. Beige Norde sets are kinda cutting off 50% of the buyers. And at 188€ before shipping and without numpad this isn't the most appealing set in regard of pricing either. Also quite a few people who spend money onto these sets already have one from the last round.

I can see you point. But DE does not cover all Norde layouts. I have one DE set, that I bought for few bucks, but it misses 5 or 6 keys for SW. It is not a bad compromise though, but it is not the same as having the correct legends in new caps. But at the end you may be right for many users that only needs DE, but for the rest of us that need other Norde legends, this international kits are the only true real options.

That's obviously true. It's pretty much the only option for Nordic people cause OG sets are rare. The population of these countries is probably less than half of what the German-speaking population is so these kits will always have a smaller group of interested people which makes it quite a bit harder to reach moq than for other popular colourways.
