[IC] GMK Tactical Set
« on: Thu, 31 January 2019, 17:33:52 »


Are you thinking about cerakoting your board? I've got you, presenting the GMK Tactical Set, the first GMK set designed for Cerakoted boards (not really).

Features:
  • Cherry profile
  • Doubleshots
  • Monochrome
  • Cerakote inspired








FAQ:

- When?

I haven't contacted any vendor. This is an IC, if a vendor wants to make it, you'll know. It won't be on Massdrop.

- Split numpad?

Maybe.

- Second B for my Alice?

Maybe.

- Ne ISO avail?

If 100 different people complain I'll think about it, GMK Chocolatier had almost no units sold in Europe.

- Novelties?

I'm open for suggestions.

- More render please?

Jamón first.

- Hiragana?

No.

- Cadet alphas?

Cadet alphas are the new Hiragana. No.

Tactical cool . I think I’d need more inspiration like renders before I could make a decision. It’s definitely courageous though!

Maybe a novelty like camo or something that adds some green or grey?

Z obv gunning for large US military contract for new keycaps throughout the corps.

IN.

EDIT: Some darker beige/sand/cammo mods might look really cool. I hope it stays subtle and classy as always!

Some crosshair novelties might be cool. And/or bullet novelties: single bullet for semi-auto, two for burst, three for full-auto. Speaking of which, other gun-related novelties like SAFETY or SAFETY ON/OFF might be nice, as well. Just some ideas. Of course, these ideas might look too childish and we don't want that.

That would be expensive, but it could be done in large volumes.

They won't be as cool as CozCaps' camo mods.

I considered dark enter & escape accents. I'll test darker mods, but I'm into monochrome for this sets so people can match keycaps and case.

See latest reply. I don't know why you'd want orange accents too.

I'll consider then the accent kit with BRIGHT ORANGE and dark grey/dark olive mods. Something small.

As a beige connoisseur myself, I love the subtle play between the main color of Flat Dark Earth, and the creamy light beige accent keys.

Yes.  As it stands, I was planning to mix and match some PMK DSA PBT caps in various shades (GQN, GEC, WAN) for exactly that purpose, even though I'm not all that fond of DSA, because the colorways just make sense to me.  But to my eye, this is coming from the same place - and GMK would be far preferable.  Love it.  I'm in.

I already did actually!  :)) Only I went with "wild purple" and not "flat dark earth". Still a good looking set though.
