Beautiful definitely going to pick this up. I'm a sucker for greys.

Thank you! I've been working today on contacting Artisan Makers to get some collaborations going for the keyset! I also sent another message to Rama about a potential Rama Cap for the set. We will see how that goes! Hopefully this is the one! It's a alternative Novelty that didn't make it into the set.

I am also in. Love the color scheme and homage to Dark Souls. Interested in the pad as well. Looking forward to participating.

There are minor discrepancies, I need to remove the Alpha colored Esc key from the Ashes kit, add a 1.25u Enter Key and 1.75u Enter Key to the Basalt Kit, and add a accent numpad enter to the Caldera kit. After this there will be no more changes to the kits. These changes were suggested to me and seemed minor enough for me to make. I'm hoping for the best prices possible with these kits.

Thank you everyone for your feedback!

I am also excited to let you all know that there will be some artisan collaborations happening with this keyset! I have been in talks with a few artisan makers to design caps for this set! More information will be coming on in the next couple of weeks on those collaborations, along with the cable collaboration that we will be having for this set!

As two kits, both struggle to meet MOQ.  Combining them to make one kit should reduce the odds of all these keycaps being canceled.

The UK ISO was originally in the base kit, which would have been handy

I cut a lot of things out of the base kit to try and reduce cost for the over all kit, I added UK ISO to the Caldera Kit to try and give iso, ext, and 40s a good chance to all make it, I apologize that it got moved, but I want to try to get all kits to make it at a reasonable price, and thought that this would strategically be the best way to get UK ISO and 40s made.

Actually just spoke to OneFiftyNine today about this, he mentioned that he is going to fix the renders for the Ashes kit (removing the alpha colored esc key) and the Basalt kit (adding the 1.25u enter and 1.75u enter that are missing from the kit right now), then send the renders off to GMK to get quotes, after that him and I will discuss pricing and post it as soon as possible to prepare people. :)

Re: [IC] GMK Ashes [1/21 Cable Update] (GB starts Feb. 15th)
« Reply #263 on: Tue, 21 January 2020, 16:16:51 »
Just a quick update today! Hope everyone is doing well! I have been in contact with SpaceCables for quite some time now and have been working with him on collaborating for this set! There will be two coiled cables for the set one in mini b and one in type c, to make sure most keyboards work with the cable. They will both the the same length and color. I am currently working with him on getting samples (he lives like 2 hours away from me so managing this is going to be a piece of cake, I might even help him make the cables by hand :D). I will post pics of the cables in here once everything is finalized for them! I also wanted to let everyone know that OneFiftyNine and I just ordered a sample mat for the main deskmat, I am not too worried about the Ghost Deskmat since it is an extremely simple design. I'll post pics of the real deskmat once it comes in, it should arrive either right before the GB starts or during the GB. Thanks for having patience with this GB and I look forward to posting the next update! :D

Contacting GMK today to find out if all the Novelties are within spec. I am worried that the Bonfire Novelty will not be within their standards, if that is the case I have a alternative novelty that will replace that bonfire. More info after they reach out to me. :)

It's staying on the deskmat and the bandoleer for sure! After looking at some other GMK novelty kits it looks like it might be fine, just want to double check for sure.

Still working on fixing the renders then going to email GMK for quotes, we probably won't know until a week before the keyset got live. If we know sooner I will update you :)

I know UK ISO was previously pushed to the 40's kit, but now essentially all the keys are in the base minus 2 which are in the 40's. Meaning you have to buy that kit for 2 keys which is a pain

Unfortunately it's too late to add the keys as the keyset goes live in 15 days. I would have loved this feedback earlier in the IC. I also tried slimming down the base kit to help cut costs while also trying to make kits that would help out everyone, normally it's really hard for 40s kits to hit MOQ, so to help that out I combined the 40s, UK-ISO keys and 2 extension keys for WKL layout boards, hoping that everyone would be willing to work together to help this kit hit MOQ.

0 chance, sorry, I am trying to keep the kits cost as low as possible, which is why I made the entire F-Row Ghost colored in the base kit so we wouldn't have to put any F-Row keys in the ghost kit. I am trying to slimline things down right now to lower the cost even more for the other kits too.

I've been seeing a little bit of concern for the Ghost Deskmat, people saying that it will get dirty real quickly and collect dirt. This is not true, I used a white NASA deskpad at work for over a year before I switched it out with a white GMK Space Cadet mat. I've had this one on my desk for the past 3 months and no dirt marks or anything, it's still the same color as it was the day I got it! The chances of it getting dirty are the same as any other deskpad! I'm still waiting on samples of the Adventurer Deskpad but due to the Coronavirus it is currently delayed. Hopefully we can get it in to QC it during the group buy so we can make any changes on it if necessary. I will be in Japan for the last half of the GB, so OneFiftyNine will have to QC the mat for me to let me know if everything looks good on it!

I wouldn't know, we aren't even in GB yet, usually we can find out when we submit the order to GMK. It also all depends on when GMK gets their 4th machine up and running, if it's before Ashes hits production (hypothetically speaking because idk if the set will hit MOQ) then the queue time will be faster than what it is right now, I think there was an update on GMK Night Runner saying that it got delayed to July Shipping, the set was supposed to ship this month but GMK is so backed up right now that they pushed it back 5 months. If the new machine isn't up and running by the time Ashes start we might be looking at a Q1 2021 release date, or a Dec 2020 release date. I really hope not but who knows.

Crazy the delay! I'm just wondering then why in the GMK Apollo Thread there was said September/October. Modern Dolch light is stated at late Q4 2020.

Good Afternoon everyone,

I just wanted to update the IC to announce that I will be removing the 40s kit from the set. After working on pricing it was discovered that the initial cost for the set to work on a 40s board was going to be over $200. With that being said there would have been a very slim chance of the kit hitting MOQ. Pricing along with giveaways will be announced soon.

Thank you for the continued support,

Tyson
