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.
VERY IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ!
Welcome to the freshly 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.
The NEW RELEASES that we launched at WARFARE are now all up on the store, please make sure you check them all out - see below for a full list of the categories that have new items in them!
In addition, the CHRISTMAS OFFERS go live as of now - all qualifying orders placed here on the new store will be included, full details of this year's offers below.
UPDATE SAT 30th NOV: IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ! Having said a couple of days ago that the Card Payment gateway was now operational, it appears there are still glitches with it - some customers can access it, some can't. If it doesn't show up as an option for you at the checkout, then please continue to use the PAYPAL payment gateway for the time being; please note that you can still pay through the Paypal gateway using your card as a one-off transaction - you DON'T have to have a Paypal account or Paypal funds to use it, and you don't have to give Paypal any more information than you would have to enter anyway if using the card payment gateway.
IMPORTANT NOTES while we get the new store version up and running:
1) 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 2013 CHRISTMAS OFFERS!
The CHRISTMAS SPECIALS are now LIVE, and will remain available until we close for the Christmas break on FRIDAY 20th DECEMBER. We're doing very much the same as we've done for many years now, as it always seems to be popular and successful: all qualifying orders placed during the offer period will get TWO special extras - a generously-stuffed Christmas Gift Packet of FREE EXTRA MINIS, chosen by us to (mostly*) suit the kind of items you have actually ordered (the value of the extra freebies will be in proportion to the value of your order - the more goods you buy, the more freebies you'll get!)... PLUS you will get a NEW YEAR DISCOUNT VOUCHER that you can spend with us online anytime during JANUARY and FEBRUARY 2014, so you can buy some stuff that you want with any Christmas gift money you've received! This year, we've decided to do away with the old 10% vouchers that we used to do, and have gone for a simple two-tier system: if the value of your order is above the qualifying threshold (see below) but below £100 before VAT and postage, then you'll get a 15% New Year Discount voucher; if the order is £100 OR OVER (before VAT and postage), then you'll get a whopping 20% discount voucher!
This year, the qualifying threshold (minimum order size) for the Christmas Offers to kick in is £36.00 inc. VAT for UK and EU customers, or £30.00 ex-VAT for non-EU customers; both these figures exclude postage/shipping costs. So, as long as the subtotal figure (before VAT or postage added) on your order form equals or exceeds £30, then the order qualifies for the freebies and voucher!
* "Mostly" because we will sometimes put in the odd extra item from a different range or scale that we think might tempt or interest you - where we feel it is appropriate we may also sometimes include a novelty figure or two from our more "adult" mini ranges; if you would specifically NOT wish to receive such items please tell us in the order comments, eg: if you are ordering a gift for a youngster or you simply don't like that sort of thing!
CHRISTMAS ORDERS AND POSTAGE TIMES:
We all know what the Christmas post is like, so PLEASE order early if you can! We will go on dispatching orders right up to the Christmas break, but if you're ordering from overseas then you really do need to get your orders to us by around the end of the first week of December if you want a good chance of them arriving in time for the holidays. We will get all orders dispatched as fast as we possibly can, stocks permitting, but once they leave here they are at the mercy of the postal authorities.... PLEASE DON'T LEAVE IT TILL THE LAST MINUTE! Thanks!
UPDATE - FRIDAY NOV. 22nd: NOVEMBER NEW RELEASES ALL NOW AVAILABLE:
All the new items we launched at WARFARE are now up on the store here for mailorder! There are new items in the STARGRUNT 15mm INFANTRY ranges (check out the NSL (New Sculpt), Colonial Defence Force, Pan African Union, Japanese and Robots categories), and in the 15mm VEHICLES (check the CIVILIAN/PARAMILITARY category for our new SWAT vans, the MANNED GUNS AND GROUNDMOUNT WEAPONS category for the new Heavy Missile Batteries, MLRS Batteries and Tracker Systems, and the WHEELED COMBAT VEHICLES category for the new MRAP Patrol Vehicles!).
TOMORROW'S WAR SUPPLEMENT (BDoT) and GRUNTZ RULEBOOKS:
For the recent shows, we've had a small stock of the new By Dagger Or Talon (BDOT) book from Ambush Alley Games (this is the first print supplement for the Tomorrow's War rules), plus copies of Robin Fitton's excellent GRUNTZ 15mm ruleset.
Now that our shows are finished for the year, I can offer the remaining copies by mailorder TO UK and EUROPEAN CUSTOMERS ONLY; both BDOT and GRUNTZ are £20 each from us, plus £3 per book postage and packing to UK customers - for European buyers, please contact me for a postage quote. Due to limited stocks and the fact that VAT is not charged on books, it will complicate things a bit to actually put the books on the store - so if you'd like a copy of either (or both!) then please EMAIL me either through the store contact system or directly to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please remember quantities are limited, and once these are gone we probably won't be restocking until the 2014 show season starts!
UPDATE - MONDAY NOV. 18th: BACK FROM THE SHOW!
We're back from a very successful and enjoyable WARFARE, which means the 2013 Show Season is now finished for us - so now all the pre-Christmas stuff starts...! It will take me a few days to sort things out following the show and to catch up with outstanding mailorders, then as soon as all that is dealt with I'll be getting the various NEW RELEASES up on the store and ready to order. As a heads-up to you all, I'll be announcing the CHRISTMAS OFFERS for this year at the same time as the new products are uploaded; the threshold at which the offers will kick in will be £36 of goods (or £30 ex-VAT for non-EU customers), so anyone thinking of placing an order for over that amount might want to wait a few days until the annoucements are made....?
Check back here regularly this week for further news!
UPDATE - WEDNESDAY NOV. 13th: WARFARE NEW RELEASES!
Just a few days now before WARFARE, and here's a taster of the NEW items we're going to be launching at the show. In 15mm infantry, as well as the NSL packs and Robots already released last week, we will have COLONIAL DEFENCE FORCE (CDF) troops (4 different packs), PAN-AFRICAN UNION (PAU) troops (3 packs) and JAPANESE CORPORATE ASHIGARU (4 packs). In 15mm VEHICLES, we have a whole bundle of stuff, including SWAT Riot Vans (4 variants), MRAP Patrol Vehicles (3 variants), trailered and ground-mount long range Missile and MLRS Batteries and Sensor/Tracker units for them! All the new releases will be available for mailorder here on the store as soon as possible after we're back from the show, but if you can make it to Reading on Saturday or Sunday then you'll have the chance to see and buy them - while stocks last, of course!
UPDATE - TUESDAY NOV. 5th:
Some NEW RELEASES are now up in the 15mm section - four packs of all-new-sculpt NSL Panzergrenadiers (SG15-N10 to N13), and a pack of Combat/Security Robots (SG15-R01), humanoid but with loads of mechanical detail! Check them all out either by clicking on the "Latest Products" at the foot of this page, or by going to the 15mm Infantry menu. Please note that there have been NEW menu pages created for both the Robots and for the NSL new sculpts, to avoid confusion with the original-style NSL figures - the new versions, though following the same designs, are very different in detail and style from the old N01 and N05 figures. These releases are all AVAILABLE NOW!
More to come soon - please keep an eye on the postings here!
UPDATE - WEDNESDAY SEPT. 25th:
The three NEW RELEASES mentioned below (TW US Power Armour, plus two SLAMMERS infantry packs) are now all up on the store and available to mailorder! Click on the "latest products" boxes at the foot of this page to go straight to them!
EARLIER NEW RELEASES:
All the NEW items released at SALUTE are now fully available on the store - you'll find them in the 15mm section, in a new page for the CIVILIAN MECHA, the CIVILIAN, PARAMILITARY AND MISC. VEHICLES page, the TOMORROW'S WAR infantry page and the UNSC infantry page!
From later releases, we have EIGHT packs of the all-new-sculpt FSE COLONIAL LEGIONNAIRES (codes SG15-F10 to F13 in HELMETS, and F20 to F23 in KEPIS), PLUS the next three packs of US ARMY HARDSUIT TROOPS for TOMORROW'S WAR - codes TW15-US04, US05 and US06.
For the UNSC/H Hardsuit Marines, we have a pack of troops on Grav Bikes (V15-82B); we also have a new Hover combat vehicle (V15-98A), the Gladiator III tank destroyer, which is used in the HAMMER'S SLAMMERS rules system as the HADES tank Destroyer for the Division Legere forces.
Finally for this batch, we have some good news for the Anime gaming fans out there - we are at last re-releasing the "Bubblegum Crisis" figure sets in 25/28mm - see the new page for BGC figures in the main menu at left.
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...
