[GB] KAT Lich - GB CLOSED! MOQ HIT!
« on: Mon, 06 January 2020, 18:35:17 »



Hey there!
I'm eskimojo, and have been in the community for a year or so. This is my first set, and I'm super excited to share this with you.
This set is inspired by the character Wiz from the anime Konosuba, who is a kindly undead shopkeeper.


IC link

Vendors
US - Novelkeys
EU - MyKeyboard
Asia - zFrontier (EN) zFrontier (CN)
Canada - DeskHero
Australia - SwitchKeys
Ukraine/Russia - FunKeys

Prices

Please note that the MOQs noted above are purely suggested, and Keyreative's MOQs work in a very different manner to any other manufacturer.
MOQ has now been hit, and all kits will be made.

KAT Lich launches on the 7th of January 2020, and run until the 31st!

The current estimated shipping date of this keyset is July 2020.



Kits

Base alphas for ANSI, ISO US and UK.


Modifiers for boards sized 60% to TKL. Includes ISO, tsangan, HHKB, and most others.
This also includes an R3 up arrow, as this was a feature from MT3 I particularly enjoyed and wanted for KAT.


Coverage for those inclined for smaller boards.


For those who like their board a little more gridlike.


Covers ergo boards and Boardwalk.


Covers ergo boards and Boardwalk.


Support for those who like their boards big and beautiful.


Add some magic to your board with these icons. Accent arrows also included.


For those who like their spacebars accented (or smaller). Includes extra B, for Alice users.


Adds coverage for northern international languages. Essentially a NorDe+ kit.


Adds coverage for those further south, covering both Spanish and Portuguese layouts along with Italian.


Coverage for AZERTY users (including France, Belgium and Northwest Africa).


Coverage for Dvorak and Colemak derived layouts.



Renders
Fjell (Mekanisk)

More

M65-A (Rama Works)

More

M60-A (Rama Works)

More

Tofu (KBDfans)

The below renders are from before the legends were tweaked to be thinner and smaller. The above renders are more accurate for legends.

Iron165 SE (Smith + Rune)

More

Iron165 FE (Smith + Rune)

More

M0llY (TheKeyCompany)

More

SP-111 (TheKeyCompany)

More



Profile
I have chosen to design this set for KAT, as its silky smooth PBT surface combined with a comfortable and subtle sculpt makes it my favourite profile by far.
Additionally, they have the capability to do reverse dye sub, as seen in samples for KAT Eternal and KAT Oasis.
The MOQ system for KAT is also unique, and is done in such a way that allows for child kits that may not usually get enough support to be made. I've taken advantage of this by offering multiple international kits and colevrak support.

Colours
This set uses four Pantones as these are preferred for dye sublimation.
I have samples of these pantones in-hand to match to, and am happy with them.




I have a channel for updates and discussion in Emir's Discord server, and will of course keep this thread updated.

Special Thanks
  • Minterly/Nat and the neccsock crew - General advice (especially with kitting) along with the incredible support from the whole crew (love you guys). Special mention goes to bhk, who was a lifesaver for getting hold of Pantones. (Grinsepo also suggested lowercase legends, which turned out great)
  • Rensuya - Support since the beginning (this set was originally conceived in the Discord channel for Ren's set PBT Aqua Goddess) along with advice and feedback.
  • Manzel - Assisted with colour conversion very early in the process, along with providing the excellent renders for the Fjell, M65, M60 and Tofu.
  • DepletedVespene/Miguel - Tireless feedback, and his awesome resources for international kits.
  • OneCreativeMind - Feedback on the vector art in the set. Also created the arrow icons, which fit perfectly with the font.
  • MKUltra - Assistance and feedback on the Ergo kit.
  • MetallicCharles - Awesome renders for the Iron165, M0llY, and SP-111.
  • All of my vendors - Amazing support and making this all possible!

Changelog
  • 2020-01-07 - Initial GB post.

I believe the English site for zFrontier should allow orders from outside of China - is this not the case?

Yes, it is usually the case, but the listing on English page is separate. For example GMK toxic not available on international zfrontier

Not sure I understand. My OP links to two separate Zfrontier listings - is neither of those what you're looking for?

Ahh gotcha. I may split the zF column into two, that's a good point :)

First numbers are in! Making steady progress - currently at 17.5% of MOQ.

Alphas - 44
Mods - 33
40s - 6
Ortho - 8
Ergo - 2
Ergo-Legends - 4
Numpad - 9
Novelties - 25
Spacebars - 6
North - 1
South - 0
French - 1
Colevrak+ - 3

As a quick reminder, KAT MOQ is based on overall unit numbers rather than specific kit sales, so don't be worried if your kit of choice isn't selling as much as you'd like. If MOQ is met, all kits get made regardless. ;)

Our Ukranian/Russian proxy is also now live! Super glad to have them onboard <3

Deskmat will hopefully be ran at a later date. There were CNY timing issues which prevented getting samples.

Deskmat will hopefully be ran at a later date (after March) as we were unable to get samples due to CNY. Will update here once I know more  ;)

Will vary per vendor - I believe NovelKeys closes at midnight EST, but don't know for other vendors. Will likely be late in the day (for each timezone).
