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.
GZG CHRISTMAS OFFERS NOW ON -
PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR FULL DETAILS!
UPDATE - SUNDAY 21st DECEMBER 2014:
HAPPY WINTER SOLSTICE to any of you who celebrate it!
Right, up until Friday everything was pretty much up to date, but over this weekend the amount of orders I've had in has been amazing - looks like quite a lot of you have left things to the last minute... ;-)
I will get as many as I can dispatched over the next couple of days, but please understand that I won't get through all of them - and any that are placed on Monday 22nd or later certainly won't be mailed until after Christmas. I'll probably post at least one more update before Christmas Day, so please check back here to see how things are going!
UPDATE - FRIDAY 12th DECEMBER 2014:
I'm keeping up with the Christmas orders pretty well, most are going out within a day or two - and some even same-day - and there is still plenty of time for UK and EU customers to get orders in and dispatched in time for Christmas delivery (Postal services permitting, of course). Orders from the USA, Canada and further afield will also be mailed as quickly as possible, of course, but they now may or may not make it in time for the big day - still, if it's stuff you're treating yourself to then that doesn't really matter!
The Christmas offers (free extra stuff and New Year voucher for all qualifying orders) are still on for another 10 days - ending Monday 22nd - so there is still time for you to get in on them. Please read the full details below on the offers, especially the info on the qualifying order size.
Wishing all our customers a happy, safe and enjoyable Christmas or whatever other seasonal festival you choose to celebrate!
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 - SUNDAY 23rd NOVEMBER 2014:
2014 CHRISTMAS FREE GIFTS and
2015 NEW YEAR DISCOUNT VOUCHERS:
RUNNING FROM 00.01 Hours on MONDAY 24th NOVEMBER to 24:00 (Midnight) on MONDAY 22nd DECEMBER 2014 - all by UK TIME.
Once again we are running our dual Christmas/New Year offer that has proved so popular for many years now - all qualifying* orders placed during the Christmas offer period will get TWO bonuses:
FIRSTLY a FREE CHRISTMAS GIFT BAG from us, enclosed with your order, containing our choice of free extra items as a Christmas Gift to you - those of you who have had these in the past will know that we enclose a generous mix of items which are mostly relevant to the sort of things you've ordered, plus sometimes the occasional item or pack from one of our other ranges if we think you might like it.
The amount of stuff you get in your freebie bag depends on how large your order is - a small order will get a free pack or two, a large one will get a positively bulging bag of free extras!
SECONDLY, all qualifying* orders will get a DISCOUNT VOUCHER valid from the beginning of January to the end of February 2015 - so that you can use it to order even more cool stuff with the Christmas money that you get from all those relatives who don't know what to buy you....
If the subtotal value of your order (excluding VAT and postage/shipping) is £30 or over, but less than £100, then you will get a voucher worth 15% discount off your New Year order; if the value is £100 or over, then you will get a 20% discount voucher!
*IMPORTANT: To be a QUALIFYING ORDER to receive the Christmas/New Year specials, your order must show a SUBTOTAL of £30 (30 GBP) or over at the checkout stage. This subtotal is the goods value EXCLUDING any VAT or shipping/postal charges. We have to do it like this because of the different shipping rates to various worldwide destinations, and the fact that some customers (UK and EU) are charged VAT while those elsewhere are not. Using the subtotal excluding VAT and shipping means that everyone ordering the same actual amount of goods qualifies in the same way, which is the fairest way we can work it out!
PLEASE NOTE THAT UK AND EU CUSTOMERS MUST ORDER AT LEAST £36 (at VAT inclusive prices shown on store) OF GOODS TO REACH THE £30 EX-VAT THRESHOLD AND QUALIFY FOR THE XMAS EXTRAS!
A couple of IMPORTANT NOTES about the Christmas free gift items:
1) Please DO NOT ask for specific items in the free gift bag - the choice of what to include is OURS, though we will always endeavour to choose items that we think will be useful and/or interesting to you! If you knew exactly what you were getting it would spoil the surprise, wouldn't it?
2) Please note that SOME of the freebie items MAY include a novelty piece or two from our "over 18s" adult collectable ranges, if you specifically DON'T want this (eg: if buying for a youngster, or if you simply don't like that sort of thing) then please tell us in the order notes - we don't want to offend anyone!
CHRISTMAS and NEW YEAR BREAK, and PRE-CHRISTMAS ORDERING:
The last day for placing orders with us before the Christmas break will be MONDAY 22nd DECEMBER; any orders placed after that date will most likely NOT be dispatched until we re-open for business on MONDAY 5th JANUARY 2015.
The webstore WILL remain open over the break, so orders may still be placed, but they will not be processed until after the 5th January. The New Year discount vouchers will become "live" on the 1st of January, and just before this I will be posting full details on the webstore front page of how to enter your code to redeem your voucher. Please DO NOT try to use your discount vouchers before the 1st Jan, as the store will not accept the codes.
While orders will still be packed and posted right up to (and possibly beyond) the 22nd Dec, please note that we cannot guarantee delivery before Christmas, because that is in the hands of the postal services!
If you have a last-minute order which you simply MUST have by Christmas, please contact me (Jon) by email and I can see what is possible using Special Delivery or Courier services - but note that this may incur additional charges.
If at all possible, I would STRONGLY recommend that if you want your goods to have a good probability of arriving by Christmas, then UK orders are placed before Friday 19th December, European orders before Friday 12th December, US/Canadian orders before Friday 5th December and any others (Australia, NZ, Rest of World) by the end of November!

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.
