Welcome to the Ground Zero Games Online Store
Please check back to this front page regularly, as important news and updates are posted here as frequently as possible.
Welcome to the recently updated GZG online store - though it looks different, most things should still work the same way as the old version; the reason for the changeover is that Cubecart 4, which ran the old store, is now obsolescent and so we've upgraded to Cubecart 5. Some things about this new version may still need a little tweaking over the coming days, if you find anything that doesn't work for you then please let me (Jon) and Paul (web admin) know via the "contact" section.
NOTES while we get the new store version up and running:
At present, all prices on the store are displayed INCLUSIVE OF VAT - we don't currently have the option to display the ex-VAT prices for non-EU customers, though we hope this will return as soon as we can sort it out; in the meantime, all non-EU customers please rest assured that the VAT will be deducted for you at the checkout stage, and the ex-VAT subtotal will be displayed at that point on all orders.
ADDITIONAL UPDATE - FRIDAY 27th FEBRUARY 2015:
NEW FT STARSHIP RELEASES NOW AVAILABLE!
Four NEW codes of Merchant Ships (or "targets", as some of you like to consider them...): the FT353A Bergen Starlighter is the first of an all-new design, which will shortly be joined by several variant codes with different cargo modules; FT338C, D and E are new variants of our popular "Tradewind" class ships with different cargo module loads AND an all-new drive module - this new drive unit will also now be supplied with the original Tradewind class ships (FT338A and B) unless the old design is specifically requested on ordering.
Click on the pictures at the foot of this page, or just go to the "Merchant, Civilian and Support Ships" page in the store.
PLEASE NOTE that this completes the new releases planned for this month - there will be no more additions now until March, so if you've been waiting till the last minute before using your discount voucher than you can now go ahead and put your order in! Remember that the expiry deadline is 12 midnight on Saturday 28th, by UK TIME - so if you're in a different timezone then please take that into account!
UPDATE - FRIDAY 27th FEBRUARY 2015:
NEW 15mm RELEASES NOW AVAILABLE!
As promised in yesterday's update, the new releases (in 15mm) are now up on the store and fully available. We have some lovely little Drone UAVs, designed and sculpted by MMG, in two types - a fan-drone with quad fan nacelles (V15-106 A to D), and a Grav drone with quad lift vanes (V15-107 A to D) - so you can pick whichever type best suits your army's tech level. Each drone is available in FOUR different weapon load variants - a heavy autocannon, a Plasma cannon, a pair of four-round missile packs or a pair of heavy machine-guns. Either click on the pics in the new products section at the foot of this page, or go to the "Drones, Remotes and Bots" page of the 15mm listings.
In addition to the eight versions of drone, we also have SIX new packs of 15mm troops - one (SG15-C20) for the Colonial Defence (CDF) of troopers with short assault-carbine or autoshotgun type weapons (as already used on the command and weapons crew packs for the CDF); the Pan-Africans (PAU) get a pack of MOUNTED SCOUTS (SG15-P17), with all-new riders on terran-stock horses. Last but not least, the FSE COLONIAL LEGION gets FOUR long-awaited new packs: with figures in Helmets we have a Command and Comms pack (SG15-F14), a RAM Mortars pack (SG15-F15) and a Plasma Cannons pack (SG15-F16), plus one pack of Plasma cannon teams with crew in Kepis (SG15-F26).
UPDATE - THURSDAY 26th FEBRUARY 2015:
ORDER DISPATCHES, VOUCHERS and NEW RELEASES!
Sorry for going a whole month without any news updates, but the orders have been coming in so fast that I've been putting all my time into keeping up with them! A lot of our regular customers have already redeemed their discount vouchers, but I know that some of you always save yours until the last minute in the hope that some new products will be available in time..... I'm sorry that I haven't announced anything earlier, but I don't like posting something until the mould is actually made and the item is in production and genuinely ready for sale - so I can now tell you that some new figure masters arrived from the sculptor yesterday, and combined with some items I've been working on myself over the last week or so I was able to get a master mould made yesterday - so today will be making some production moulds, assembling and photographing the display examples ready to upload them to the store. I HOPE, if everything goes well, that I will be able to announce the new items tomorrow (Friday 27th) thus giving folks at least 24 hours to get orders in before the voucher expiry at midnight (UK time) on Saturday 28th.
So, PLEASE CHECK BACK HERE AT REGULAR INTERVALS TODAY AND TOMORROW, MORE NEWS WILL BE POSTED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!
If you have already placed an order in the last week or so, or are planning to do so in the next couple of days, please be aware that I am currently VERY busy with a large pile of orders to get through - of course this pile will get bigger over the weekend - and while I am as always working to get orders out as quickly as possible there may well be some longer-than-usual delays, especially on large or complex orders where I have to cast a lot of product to fill them. Once the end-of-Feb rush is over and done, things will return to normal for a while before I get stuck into the preparations for SALUTE in April.
UPDATE - MONDAY 26th JANUARY 2015:
Now much better and back to work after last week's sickness, so starting to catch up with orders again. Apologies to those who have had to wait a few extra days, but thanks for your patience!
UPDATE - WEDNESDAY 7th JANUARY 2015:
Just managed to get the store upgrade installed which has fixed the annoying VAT miscalculation when UK/EU customers' voucher codes were used - it all appears to be working fine now, so ALL customers who have New Year discount vouchers can now redeem them following the instructions below!
UPDATE - MONDAY 5th JANUARY 2015:
It's back to work and back to normal for many folks today, I hope everyone survived the Festive Season relatively intact....?
Update on the New Year Discount Vouchers:
All the unique voucher codes have now been entered on the store, so the vouchers are now LIVE and may be used. If you have received a voucher with your pre-Xmas order, you will see that it has an 8-character code on it - this is your unique voucher code, and it is valid for ONE order placed on the store before Midnight (UK time) on the 28th February 2015.
To use your voucher, at the first checkout screen (when you click "view basket") you will see a box labelled "Add gift certificate or coupon": you need to enter your voucher code in this box, but it is important to enter it in the correct format or it won't work. Your code consists of a 3-digit number, follwed by three letters (all in UPPER CASE) and then two more digits. Please enter your code with NO SPACES, making sure that the letters are all in upper case (capitals) and that you distinguish between a zero (0) and the letter O, and between a one (1) and the letter I.
Once you've typed your code in, you need to click on the "UPDATE BASKET" button - this should then display the deducted discount in red. Now you can proceed to complete checkout and make payment as normal. Please note that as each code may only be used ONCE, if you make an error or decide you don't want to complete that particular order after all, you will have to contact me (Jon) by email and ask for your code to be re-activated, as the store will consider it to have been used.
UPDATE - WEDNESDAY 31st DECEMBER 2014:
HAPPY NEW YEAR to all!
Important news re New Year Discount Vouchers - please read:
OK, Christmas is now over and done - hope you all had a good one - and in a few hours from writing this, 2014 will be all over too...... it's been a good year for us overall, with plenty of new products and a steady flow of orders, culminating in a large influx just before we closed for the Christmas break - I've been working on-and-off over the holiday due to the sheer number of orders, and while I've cleared many of them there are still quite a few to be done. For that reason, I'm NOT now going to activate the New Year discount vouchers until Monday 5th Jan, which is when I'd originally planned to restart work anyway; this is because I don't want a large number of new orders piling up while I'm still trying to clear all the earlier ones. This slight change won't actually make any difference at all, because I wouldn't have been packing or posting any new orders till the 5th anyway - it will just give me a couple more days to get prepared, especially as actually entering all the voucher codes on the store is not a quick job - it'll take me the best part of a working day just to do that!
So, if you have a New Year voucher to use, please check back here on Sunday 4th Jan, by which time all the voucher codes should be entered and active, and I will have posted the details of exactly how to redeem your voucher and claim the discount.
Wishing everyone a happy, safe, healthy and prosperous 2015!
UPDATE - MIDNIGHT, MONDAY 22nd DECEMBER 2014:
OK, it's just gone Midnight UK time, so the Christmas Offers are now officially CLOSED!
Further updates, Sunday 23rd November 2014:
NEW RELEASES - OUT NOW!
The four new 15mm packs that were released at WARFARE last weekend are now on the store here and available to mailorder! Check the Stargrunt 15mm PAU and Japanese pages, or simply click on the pics of latest items shown at the foot of this page!
SG15-P15 Pan-African Union weapons teams with Rotary Heavy Machineguns (2 teams each of gun, tripod mount, gunner and spotter, both in helmets)
SG15-P16 Pan-African Union weapons teams with RAM mortars (2 teams each of mortar, baseplate and two crew, both in helmets)
SG15-J15 Japanese Corporate Ashigaru weapons teams with Heavy Tribarrel Autocannons (2 teams each of gun, tripod mount, gunner and spotter, both in helmets)
SG15-J16 Japanese Corporate Ashigaru weapons teams with Multilaunchers (2 teams each of launcher, baseplate and two crew, both in helmets)
IMPORTANT NEWS RE OUR SG25 RANGE OF 25mm FIGURES:
As some of you may know already, we recently agreed with Eureka Miniatures the termination of our long-standing license production agreement which saw Eureka producing a selection of the GZG ranges (including our "old-style" FT starship fleets) for sale in the Australian/NZ markets.
The most important effect of this decision as far as our own customers are concerned is that we will be ceasing production of a number of the lines in our SG25 infantry range, because these figures were designed by or for Eureka and have been produced by GZG under a reciprocal licensing agreement.
The 25mm figure ranges that are affected are as follows:
All of the SGZ (New Israeli) range
All of the SGO (OUDF) range
All of the SGD (Dutch) range
All of the SGB (Indonesian) range
Part of the SGP (Pan African) range - figure codes from SGP-09A onwards
Part of the SGU (UNSC Hardsuit) range - figure codes from SGU-14A to SGU-20A
Part of the SGE (Eurasian) range: the Heavy Infantry only, figure codes from SGE-50 to SGE-71
Part of the SGA (NAC) range: the Gurkhas only, figure codes from SGA-61 to SGA-72D
Part of the SGN (NSL) range: the JAGERS only, figure codes from SGN-41 to SGN-62
The "EBH" Alien Bounty Hunters figures (EBH-1,2,3)
All other SG25 code figures will remain in production as normal, but as of December 31st 2014 all the items on the list above will be removed from our webstore, and will not be available from us even as special order items; they will, as far as I know, remain available direct from Eureka Miniatures for the foreseeable future.
So, especially if you are in the UK or EU, if you want any SG25 figures from the ranges listed above to complete your forces, and want to get them from us, you have just over one month in which to purchase them before they are gone from sale.
PLEASE NOTE THAT NONE OF OUR SG15 (15mm) FIGURES ARE AFFECTED BY THIS CHANGE - ALL THE 15mm FIGURES ARE OUR (GZG) SCULPTS!
UPDATE - MONDAY 27th OCTOBER 2014:

SEVEN new 15mm packs plus one new vehicle - all in full production and AVAILABLE NOW - check the relevant pages of the store, or just click on the latest items displayed at the foot of this page!
THE NSL HEAVIES HAVE ARRIVED! Stomping across the battlefield (or soaring on jump-jets) in support of our recent NSL troops releases, we are very pleased to announce the all-new, resculpted NSL POWER ARMOUR TROOPS!
While similar in design to our original SG15-N03 pack, these all-new sculpts are significantly bigger and more imposing than the old figures, with the addition of jump-packs and a much wider weapons selection. Please note that the old N03 pack will remain available for those who wish to add to old units of them, but these new figures don't really mix with them.
SG15-N31 NSL "PKaZ" (PanzerKampfanZug) Powered Armour Troops pack A: Hand Weapons £4.50 (£3.75 ex VAT)
Six figures with PA-modified Assault Rifles, plus over-shoulder grenade launcher racks on (optional) jump-jet backpacks. Pack contains 6 body castings (3 each of 2 different poses), 6 backpacks and 6 sets of separate arms to allow maximum pose variation. The back of each body casting is fully detailed to allow the figures to be assembled either with or without the jump-packs, to your choice.
SG15-N32 NSL "PKaZ" (PanzerKampfanZug) Powered Armour Troops pack B: Heavy Support Weapons £4.50 (£3.75 ex VAT)
Six figures with support weapons (3 each of Plasma Gun and Heavy SAW), plus over-shoulder grenade launcher racks on (optional) jump-jet backpacks. Pack contains 6 body castings (3 each of 2 different poses), 6 backpacks and 6 sets of separate arms to allow maximum pose variation. The back of each body casting is fully detailed to allow the figures to be assembled either with or without the jump-packs, to your choice.
SG15-N33 NSL "PKaZ" (PanzerKampfanZug) Powered Armour Troops pack C: Command and Missile £4.50 (£3.75 ex VAT)
Six figures: 3 command suits with PA-modified Assault Rifles and comms system plus sensor pod on (optional) jump-jet backpacks, 3 Multi-Role Missile operators with 4-round box launcher and jump-pack with sensor/designator pod. Pack contains 6 body castings (3 each of 2 different poses), 6 backpacks and 6 sets of separate arms to allow maximum pose variation. The back of each body casting is fully detailed to allow the figures to be assembled either with or without the jump-packs, to your choice.
The BRAZILIANS for TOMORROW'S WAR: sculpted to designs from Ambush Alley Games, publishers of the Tomorrow's War rules system (available from Osprey Publishing). Check AAG's website for more information on these figures and the TW rules!
Three packs out at present - more to follow if these are popular....
TW15-BZ01 Brazilian Riflemen, 8 figures with assault rifles £3.60 (£3.00 ex VAT)
Eight Brazilian troopers in combat hardsuits with "Cyclops" helmets and standard infantry assault rifle, 2 each of 4 different poses.
TW15-BZ02 Brazilian Support Gunners, 8 figures with SAWs £3.60 (£3.00 ex VAT)
Eight Brazilian troopers in combat hardsuits with "Cyclops" helmets and Squad Automatic Weapons (SAWs) , 2 each in kneeling firing and prone firing poses, plus 4 in advancing pose.
TW15-BZ03 Brazilian Heavy and Special Weapons, 8 figures £3.60 (£3.00 ex VAT)
Eight Brazilian troopers in combat hardsuits with "Cyclops" helmets, 2 each of 4 different poses: 2 poses with shoulder-fired rocket system (kneeling firing, and advancing), one pose of Marksman advancing with sniper rifle, one pose of Grenadier standing firing auto-grenade-launcher.
A new (and rather different!) addition to our very popular Colonoal Defence Force (CDF) troops range:
SG15-C17 Colonial Defence Force (CDF) Mounted Recon Scouts £3.00 (£2.50 ex VAT)
CDF scouts mounted on Terran-stock heavy horses, pack contains 2 horses (different poses) and 2 riders (also in different poses), both with assault rifles or autoshotguns. Good old-fashioned low-tech Colonial scout forces, extremely capable in bad terrain, long-ranged and low-maintenance - much more reliable than a grav bike!
Plus a new variant of the MRAP 4-wheeler, great for any colonial, low-tech or near-future forces....
V15-100D MRAP Open Cargo Truck variant £7.50 (£6.25 ex VAT)
A further variant of the MRAP protected patrol vehicle, this time with an open cargo bed - for logistics support, basic troop transport or ideal to fit any kind of weapon mount in the back to make a "technical" for colonial and irregular forces!
IMPORTANT NOTE ON NEW ISRAELI AND KRA'VAK STARSHIPS:
Please note that these two ranges of FT starships (the NI 15xx codes and K'V 4xx codes) are now suffering from significant mould wear, and in due course they will be withdrawn from sale pending the making of new moulds for them; if you wish to order any in the meantime we can still supply them for the moment, but on the understanding that some (especially the larger K'V classes) will need considerably more clean-up work (flash removal, re-opening mounting holes etc) that our normal castings. Thanks for your attention.
