NOTE ON PRICES FOR ALL NON-EU CUSTOMERS:
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.
UPDATE - SATURDAY 29th AUGUST 2015:
"COLOURS" IS BACK....
....and we will be there supporting it as usual! After their break last year, the ever-popular COLOURS show (by Newbury and Reading Wargames Society) is back at NEWBURY RACECOURSE on Saturday the 12th September. Please note that this is a ONE-DAY event rather than the old two-day show, which makes a lot of sense - the Sunday was always very sparsely attended anyway, with public transport being much more difficult. On Saturday, the Racecourse's own rail stop is open making this one of the easiest shows to get to by train - but there is also masses of free car parking. We will have a whole load of NEW RELEASES out for the show; if I get the time to preview any here I will, otherwise you'll just have to turn up and see for yourselves!
More details between now and the show, please check back here regularly for further updates....

ARMED FORCES DAY CHARITY DONATION:
A BIG THANK YOU to all those of you who got your orders in over the AFD weekend - as soon as I get the chance, I'll sort out how big this year's donation will be and how I will divide it, and between which charities. More news soon!
UPDATE - FRIDAY 26th June 2015:
GZG: 30th BIRTHDAY OFFER!
As some of you may have realised (I know that a few of you have been with us since the start!), GZG is officially 30 YEARS OLD this year!
The very first products I made and sold under the GZG name were produced in 1985, when people had to find out about my products from small ads in the back of White Dwarf (still an independant gaming mag in those days!) and Military Modelling, and then had to send orders by post with cheques or postal orders - yes, kids, there really WAS gaming around before the Internet….
I can't recall exactly what date in 1985 I actually began selling stuff - so July, being the middle of the year, seems as good a time as any - plus my own birthday is also in July, making it a good month to celebrate this milestone (sadly my own is considerably more than GZG's 30 years….).
I was planning to run an offer just for the month of July - but as the Armed Forces Day falls just at the end of June, I decided that I may as well start the Birthday Offer today, a few days early, so that those of you who wish to order this weekend can take advantage of the offer as well as contributing towards my AFD charity donation as detailed above.
So, even though it is GZG's and my birthday, I'm giving YOU the gifts! As it's GZG's 30th, every order totalling £30 or more* which I receive between now and midnight on Friday 31st July will have a generous GZG 30th BIRTHDAY GIFT PACKET of free extras included with the ordered goods! This will be along the same lines as my regular pre-Christmas special promotion - a "goodie bag" of free minis picked by me, that are relevant to the sort of items you have actually ordered - so if you order FT ships, you'll get extra free ship minis, if you order 15mm then you'll get 15mm freebies, and of course mixed orders will get mixed freebie bags! Just like the Christmas offer of course, the bigger your order the more freebies you'll get..... ;-)
Please don't be cheeky and ask for specific items - it's a gift, after all - but those of you who have received our Christmas goodie bags will know that I do my best to supply interesting things that are actually useful in your games - those of you who have had the Christmas offers will also know that you will get much more value in your freebies bag than you would if I simply offered a % discount - plus you'll have the fun of the surprise!
* I'm keeping the qualifying value extra-simple for this time - if the final total of your order, the amount you actually pay INCLUDING postage and VAT where applicable, is £30 or over - then it qualifies for the 30th Birthday Freebies offer! :-)
There you go - help to celebrate 30 YEARS of GZG products, and get some great FREE stuff - what could be better?
Thanks for reading,
Jon (GZG), 26/6/15.
EXTRA UPDATE - THURSDAY 4th June 2015:
As promised earlier today, here are the NEW RELEASES, all AVAILABLE NOW! See the "new products" pics at the foot of this page, or just search the relevant sections of the 15mm Stargrunt listings.
NEW 15mm MERCENARY/IRREGULAR TROOPS:
The first packs are now available in an extensive new range of figures that can serve many purposes within your army - with a wide variety of uniforms and headgear, and carrying a mix of various low- to mid-tech weaponry, we’ve called them “Mercs”, but these troops can represent individualistic but highly trained Mercenary units, Special Forces teams or PMCs (Private Military Contractors), or equally be irregular militia, resistance fighters or almost anything else that you want them to be! There is a good mix of male and female troops within the range, and hopefully almost everyone will be able to find a role for a group of these attached to their army, or even as a complete force in their own right.
Every different figure sculpt in this range is highly individual in style, and they also lend themselves perfectly to further customisation with some simple head swaps using our SG15-XH1 and XH2 “head packs”.
AVAILABLE NOW: ALL PACKS £3.00 each (inc VAT) or £2.50 ex VAT for non-EU customers.
SG15-M01 Mercs rifles pack A - 8 figures, 2 each of 4 sculpts: 3 male figures and 1 female figure, all with various rifles and headgear (beret, field caps, bareheaded).
SG15-M02 Mercs rifles pack B - 8 figures, 2 each of 4 sculpts: all female figures, with various rifles, all bareheaded.
SG15-M03 Mercs rifles pack C - 8 figures, 2 each of 4 sculpts: all male figures, with various rifles, all bareheaded.
SG15-M04 Mercs squad support pack with SAWs/LMGs - 8 figures, 2 each of 4 sculpts: male and female figures advancing, male and female figures prone firing.
COMING SOON: further support packs with RPGs and rocket launchers, marksmen (and women) with sniping rifles, command groups and “character” leader figures, groundmount heavy weapons and crews, gunners and weapons for the backs of trucks and pickups (ideal to make the “technicals” so commonly used by irregular forces) and more!
Other NEW RELEASES available NOW: (All £3.00 per pack inc VAT, 2.50 ex VAT):
For the CDF (Colonial Defence Force) range:
SG15-C22 CDF mounted scouts in field caps (2 horses, 2 riders in different poses).
For the FSE Colonial Legion troops:
SG15-F24 FSE Colonial Legion troops in KEPI - Command and Comms pack (8 figures, 2 each of 4 different sculpts).
SG15-F25 FSE Colonial Legion troops in KEPI - RAM Mortars pack (2 weapon teams each of mortar, base mount and 2 crew figures).
More new items to follow soon in several of our most popular 15mm ranges!
UPDATE - THURSDAY 4th June 2015:
It's been a while since my last update on here - nothing to worry about, I've just been keeping the orders up to date and getting some other stuff done that has needed attention for some time. This brief post is just to let you all know that I'll be posting a batch of NEW ITEMS later today - so please check back here in a few hours' time!
This batch (all 15mm) will incude some new packs for the FSE Colonial Legion, the CDF troops and, at last, the all-new MERCENARY forces that were launched at Salute - these will now be available for mailorder!
Jon (GZG) 04/06/15.
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.
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).
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:

NEW RELEASES NOW AVAILABLE!
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.
Check out these great products...
