Ground Zero Games (GZG) is owned and run by Jon Tuffley, as Proprietor (Sole Trader). It is a one-man business, which means I get to do almost everything! Website administration (the technical stuff) is handled by Paul Owen of Binary Networks Ltd. At shows, I may have one or more volunteer helpers with me, but they are not GZG employees - so please be patient and polite with them, any complaints should be directed to me!
I have been running GZG since 1985, and it has been a full-time business for me since 1991; starting with a few resin-cast 15mm vehicles, the company and its ranges have grown and changed a lot over the years - now we produce exclusively in metal, having recently sold off the last of our resin model ranges. The one thing that has not changed is that I still produce everything (with a few minor exceptions like decals and dice) IN-HOUSE - design, mouldmaking, casting production and packing and dispatch are all handled in one place.
GZG trades predominantly by mailorder, shipping goods to customers in all parts of the world - we do not sell through distributors or retailers, preferring to deal directly with our customers. The one exception to this is that certain of our product lines are available in licence-produced form from Eureka Miniatures in Australia, for sale within the Australasian market. VAT is deducted from our retail prices for orders being shipped to countries outside the EU - the online store will show VAT-exclusive prices for you if you select that option.
We also attend a number of the major wargame shows in the UK each year, usually including SALUTE (Excel, London), TRIPLES (Sheffield), GAMES EXPO (Birmingham), COLOURS (Newbury), SELWG (Crystal Palace, London), FIASCO (Leeds), WARFARE (Reading) and possibly one or two others. For further information on show dates etc, please see our news announcements.
