About:

This idea came to me when I originally fell in love with GMK Honeywell. I decided to see what a keyset would look like if I inverted the colors, and ended up changing the white to a grey color. I instantly fell in love with the result.

An explanation for the light grey/blue modifier color thanks to the help of Mito!

The code 250 85 05 give a lot of information about the color
It informs it is a blue because the hue (250) on RAL goes from 10 to 360 and 250 is on the blue range of the RAL circle
It has a lightness of 85, which goes from 0-100, which means it is pretty light
And has a little bit of chroma or saturation 05 (goes from 0-100 too)
05 means the color is not very intense
If you memorize the 10-360 circle position, you can tell by the code itself what color is being discussed and even have a rough estimate it in your mind


Keyset colors:



Kits: Ashes | Ghost | Caldera | Lahar







Deskmats

Adventurer


Ghost


Sales Tracker


Renders

Satisfaction75 by Upas



Bauer by DixieMech



HB-CP by Hineybush

In for base + novelties + adventure deskmat.

I've been looking for a set to throw on my K-Type for a while and I really think this will be perfect :D might actually get some use out of the RGB for a change doing a cinder effect.

Are the ship out dates for the desk mats going to be the same as the keysets? Not sure if the plan is to ship everything out at the same time or as the production orders are met. I'm getting both the ghost and adventurer mat :D

Per 159's message on discord when someone asked the same thing: "Deskmats usually arrive quicker than keycaps. Production lead time is lower, but still subject to color sample and shipment by sea. I would say q3 to be safe but honestly with recent worldwide effects of covid19, a lot of dates have been up in the air."

Wanted to thank Tyson for adding 40s support back in, if it doesn't make MOQ I feel all of us that are interested will understand if it's cut and appreciate that you added it anyway. I haven't bought my kit yet but will soon :)

A question about deskmats, what is the surface material? Is it cloth or something hard? Asking from a mouse pad perspective, i.e. how good is it for a mouse.

I had been in thoughts which gray set should I buy (Ashes, Apollo or Lunar) but after cancelling Basalt this set is no buy for me.

This groupbuy is the huge disappointment.

Update: saw the message from your Discord. Sorry for emotions. I appreciate your efforts. But anyway, why you didn't want to wait until the end of groupbuy, I don't know.

Waiting until the end of the gb to cancel a low selling kit is worse. If basalt never hit MOQ by the end then people that only wanted ashes if they could get basalt would likely have missed alternative group buys that had kits to support their layout of choice.

Yeah I've ordered deskmats that go with keysets before and they're made of the same material as most mouse pads (the soft ones, not the hard plastic ones). Sometimes they're a little thicker than a mouse pad (4mm). IMO they're great for mice and usually dampen the sound of a keyboard a little.

I agree with this, and Tyson did originally say they were going to drop 40s because of lack of interest, but we asked and he tried it anyway. It didn't move from 16 kits the entire time it was open, so I fully understand pulling the kit. I've bought a few other kits and the deskmat and I'm very grateful we had the opportunity to show our interest for the 40s kit even though there wasn't enough to get it over the line.

Good Morning,

I apologize about the Basalt kit, we tried but there was just no way it was going to hit MOQ by the end of the month. Vendors numbers are not up to date right now, here is the last update I received from them. Thank you for the continued support!

Ghost Kit(Alt Alphas): 83
Caldera Kit(Accent/Novelties): 97
Lahar Kit(Spacebars): 48
Adventurer Deskmat: 148
Ghost Deskmat: 53

I will be flying to Japan on Tuesday for a vacation with friends, I'll try to update when I can, but expect the updates to be less frequent than they are right now.

Just got an update from some of the vendors! We hit MOQ on Ashes Base and Caldera! We are 6% away from Ghost kit hitting MOQ and 48% away from the Lahar kit hitting MOQ! Thankfully we are just hitting the 2 week mark, should be able to have all kits hit MOQ before the end of the GB! Thank you everyone for joining and I can't wait to see what final numbers!

Current Numbers as of 3/13:

Ashes Kit(Base): 262
Ghost Kit(Alt Alphas): 95
Caldera Kit(Accent/Novelties): 113
Lahar Kit(Spacebars): 54
Adventurer Deskmat: 176
Ghost Deskmat: 61

Re: [GB] GMK Ashes (March 2nd - 31st) [Base Kit MOQ hit!!!]
« Reply #41 on: Mon, 16 March 2020, 07:30:04 »
So since you dropped the 40s kit that had the only 1u ctrl and alt will they be added in the base kit since they are used in many keyboard layouts and most of the time are included in base kits. I feel like not having any 1u ctrl and alt keys is a big oversight and definitely makes this set a deal breaker for. I was planing on getting the base kit, 2nd alphas kit and the 40s kit which would be enough to outfit 2 of my keyboards for around $231. Which would be nice considering gmk base kits can be 130-170 so 2 sets for 2 boards could be anywhere from 260 - 340 often higher when including novelties and other kits.

SodieCaps just posted their Ashes collab artisans for the set! Sale will go up some time on Friday. Anyone can enter but GMK Ashes joiners will have 3x better chance to win.

Would've bought if the basalt set hadn't been struck down, what a disappointment.

Does the base kit include a 2U shift key?

Nope, you would end up using the numpad 2u 0

Hey, with the increasingly global shutdowns of businesses and deteriorating income sources thanks to Covid 19, what are the chances of this GB getting extended?

Would have loved to join, but the 40s kit being axed is a deal breaker for me. :( can't you just run that extra like the WoB extension kits, that are currently running? I am not going to join another group buy instead, because none of them run the Ashes colors for the mods. And I want those mods!

This is my first participation in keycap GB. Is there a chance in vendors investing into space kit so that it gets made? I really need them spacebars.

Sometimes. Fingers crossed that happens here, I need them too...

There's only 17 kits left for moq and the buy hasn't ended yet. I'm sure they will be made.
