FURTHER UPDATE - FRIDAY 25th NOVEMBER 2016:
CHRISTMAS SPECIALS NOW RUNNING!
Our 2016 Christmas Specials are NOW ON as of today, FRIDAY 25th NOVEMBER, and they will run until MIDNIGHT (2400 Hours) UK time on FRIDAY 23rd December. Our Christmas offer has been extremely popular over many years now, so this year I'm keeping it exactly the same as last year - including the simplified qualifying criteria for the offers that worked very well last time, just using the FINAL TOTAL VALUE of your order - the actual amount you pay - rather than getting all complicated about sub-total values, VAT-exclusive prices and stuff….. so once again, ALL ORDERS WITH A TOTAL VALUE (INCLUDING SHIPPING AND VAT WHERE APPLICABLE) of 30 GBP or more will qualify for both parts of the special deal:
1) All qualifying orders will get a FREE CHRISTMAS GOODIE BAG of extra minis and stuff - how much you get depends on the size of your order, and we'll tailor most of the contents to fit the kind of items you are ordering (and maybe the occasional sample that might tempt you into other ranges and scales...). What goes in the bag is OUR choice, so no being cheeky and asking for specific codes please - but those of you who have had our previous Xmas deals will know that we give you a very generous selection of items that you can actually use for your armies/fleets - and usually much more stuff than you'd get from a simple discount offer!
Sometimes I may put in the odd special or unreleased item too, so you never know what you might get....
2) In addition to the Free Stuff with your order, all qualifying customers will also get a VOUCHER that you can use to get a generous DISCOUNT off a further order placed after Christmas - so you can get all your pre-Xmas stuff AND free goodies now, and then use the voucher up when you have some gift money from all those relatives who have absolutely NO idea what to buy for you!
This year, the vouchers will be valid for the whole of JANUARY and FEBRUARY 2017 - so the voucher codes will become "live" on the store on Sunday the 1st of January 2017, and any un-used ones will expire at Midnight (UK time) on Tuesday the 28th February 2017. This should give you plenty of time to use your vouchers after the holidays are out of the way.
The value of the voucher you will receive varies according to the size of your pre-Xmas order - if your total order value is from 30 GBP to 100 GBP then you'll get a voucher for 15% discount; any orders with a total value of OVER 100 GBP will get a 20% discount voucher!
Each voucher carries a unique code number that allows you to use it for online orders. Each voucher code is valid for ONE USE ONLY, and after that use the store will not accept the code again. Therefore please don't complete checkout or make payment unless you are 100% sure that your order is correct and complete. In the case of any difficulty, please email me (Jon) immediately through the contact information on the store and I can re-set your voucher code for another attempt.
Christmas dispatch times and ordering dates, and Christmas/New Year break:
Throughout the pre- and post-Christmas period, I will be trying to keep as much up to date with order dispatches as possible - but please understand that things can get VERY busy and some orders may well take a few days longer than normal to be shipped out. If there are any serious delays then we will try to let you know where possible.
Obviously we are all at the mercy of the postal services as to delivery times - but we would strongly recommend that international orders (especially for Australia, NZ etc) are placed no later than the first week of December if you want any real hope of them arriving before Christmas. With some larger orders it is possible to ship them via parcel courier (UPS etc) rather than by airmail, the couriers are faster and with much better online tracking - if you want me to do this, or just want more details on this shipping option, please ask when you place the order.
I will continue to dispatch orders up to Friday 23rd of December - after that date we will be CLOSED for the Christmas/New Year break, re-opening on Monday 2nd January 2017. The online webstore will remain "open" throughout the Christmas period so you can still place orders, but no orders will be processed and dispatched until after the 2nd January - and of course the New Year vouchers won't become line until the start of January.
Thanks to you all for your support and valued custom through 2016 - as many of you will know it hasn't exactly been the easiest year, in fact it's one I'd quite like to forget in many ways - but most things are pretty much back to normal now, we have a whole bunch of new product already out (and more coming!) with some exciting things planned for 2017.
Wishing you all a great Christmas (or whatever other seasonal festival you choose to celebrate around this time of year) and a safe, happy and gaming-filled New Year!
All the best,
Jon (GZG), 25th Nov 2016.

WARFARE show approaching fast.....
This morning I switched off the casting machine for the minute's silence at 11:00am to mark Remembrance Day - but apart from that, it has been running full tilt to make stock ready for WARFARE next weekend (19th/20th November).

I hope to have plenty of NEW releases for the show, and will be posting more information about them in the coming week - so please check back here every now and then for the latest news.

UPDATE - FRIDAY 14th OCTOBER 2016:
ALL THE SELWG NEW RELEASES ARE NOW ON THE STORE!
All the new items listed below that we released at SELWG on Oct 9th are now up on the store, with pictures, and ready to mailorder!
Please note that the MOONGRUNT US ROVERS (USV01A, 01B) and CHINESE ROVERS (PSV01A, 01B) are available in LIMITED NUMBERS at present because I am having the resin body components cast elsewhere, and at the moment I only have a limited quantity of them. I HOPE that stocks will keep up with demand, but there is a possibility that any of these particular models may go temporarily out of stock if I'm waiting for resupplies of the resin parts. All the other items in the range are all-metal and cast in-house, so I can restock on these easily whenever I run low!
The vehicles in the MOONGRUNT range represent our first foray into 3D design and printing of masters, and much kudos is due to MMG ("Mad Mecha Guy") for the wonderful design work he has done on these!
For all the NEW items, please check the featured items at the foot of this page, or go to the relevant pages of the Stargrunt 15mm listings.
Jon (GZG), Friday 14th Oct 2016.

UPDATE - SATURDAY 1st OCTOBER 2016:
SELWG SHOW NEXT WEEKEND (9th Oct)!
The popular SELWG (South East London Wargames Group) show is just over a week away now, it's on the 9th October (Sunday) at CRYSTAL PALACE SPORTS CENTRE in South London as usual; we will be there as always, ALMOST in our usual spot on the main concourse as you enter the show, but this time we've changed sides and will be on the RIGHT as you come in, rather than the left - we will be almost opposite our old location - this is so we can get a bigger stand in, eighteen feet rather than the usual twelve!
I hope to have LOTS more new stuff ready for SELWG, including (at long last) the MOONGRUNT VEHICLES! Please check back here during the coming week for further details, and we hope to see lots of regular and new faces at the show.
Jon (GZG), 1st Oct 2016.
UPDATE - SUNDAY 18th SEPTEMBER 2016:
COLOURS NEW RELEASES ALL NOW ON STORE FOR MAILORDER!
All the new 15mm Infantry packs (and the ESU PowerArmour) that were launched at COLOURS last weekend (see the seven new packs listed below) are now up on the store and available for mailorder - the SPECIAL LAUNCH OFFER of TWO FREE SAW GUNNERS in each rifle pack (making TEN figures instead of the usual eight) is now available by mailorder, but will only run for a couple of weeks or so - just until I get the full packs of SAW gunners for each force into production, which I hope to do at the beginning of October in time for the SELWG show!
You can find all the new packs by going to the foot of this page and clicking on the featured new products pics, or by visiting the relevant pages of the SG15 (Stargrunt 15mm) figure listings via the main menu.
Please note that in the case of the ESU NAVAL INFANTRY and the NSL JAEGER figures, the new-sculpt ranges are intended to REPLACE the old early sculpts like packs SG15-E01, E02, N02, N06 etc - I will be removing the old-style packs from sale very shortly, but for those of you who already have forces of the old-style figures they will remain available to special order if you want to finish off any units - just email me (Jon) for details.
Jon (GZG), Sunday 18th Sept 2016.
UPDATE - THURSDAY 8th SEPTEMBER 2016:
NEW RELEASES FOR COLOURS!
As well as casting loads of stock for the show, I should just about have a number of NEW releases ready for the show - I'm making the moulds for these this week in between casting stock, so it'll be down to the wire as usual, but I hope to have at least a small stock of these new packs on Saturday - so come and see us as soon as you get to the show, to avoid disappointment!
Don't forget we are up on the FIRST FLOOR of the Grandstand, in the same position as last year.
I will have the following NEW packs available on the day, though some will be in very limited quantities (they will be up on the store for mail-order shortly after the show, with pictures):
TWO rifle packs for the ESU Naval Infantry - the start of a full re-sculpt of the ESU troops, replacing the old E01/E02 packs with greatly improved sculpts; similar overall style to the originals but now with redesigned helmets, new weapons, better posing and much more detail!
SG15-E10 ESU Naval Infantry (new sculpt) Rifle Pack A - 8 figures (4 different poses)* £3.00 per pack. SEE SPECIAL LAUNCH OFFER BELOW!
SG15-E11 ESU Naval Infantry (new sculpt) Rifle Pack B - 8 figures (4 different poses)* £3.00 per pack. SEE SPECIAL LAUNCH OFFER BELOW!
Also for the ESU, some heavy support in the form of the all-new Chernyy Medved ("Black Bear") Heavy Power Armour, complete with jump-jet packs and shoulder-mounted micromissile clusters; a selection of weapon options is supplied including standard PA automatic hand weapons, over/under combo hand weapons with grenade launcher, and rotary support cannon.

The first pack of ground troops for the OutRim Coalition (ORC) forces - despite their acronym these are nothing to do with green-skinned alien hooligans, they are a high-tech force of human troops raised to protect the Outer Colonies against aggression from both alien incursions and the threat from the "old" powers of the Inner Worlds. All-new designs and sculpts.
SG15-RC01 ORC (OutRim Coalition) Marine Assault Troops in Combat Hardsuits, Rifle Pack A - 8 figures (4 different poses)* £3.00 per pack. SEE SPECIAL LAUNCH OFFER BELOW!
The first pack of re-sculpted figures for the Islamic Federation forces - as with the ESU troops, this is the start of a complete rework and expansion of the range, with all-new sculpts, improved weapons and much finer detail! As with our original IF range, figures will be available in different headgear, including combat helmets and traditional Keffiyeh.
SG15-IF10 Islamic Federation Infantry in Helmets (new sculpt) Rifle Pack A - 8 figures (4 different poses)* £3.00 per pack. SEE SPECIAL LAUNCH OFFER BELOW!
TWO rifle packs for the NSL Colonial Jaeger Light Infantry - the unarmoured light troops to support the NSL Panzergrenadiers - these are all-new re-sculpts to replace the original N02/N06 packs, with much improved proportions, poses and detail, their distinctive combat helmets and the same weapons types as the Panzergrenadier armoured troopers.
SG15-N41 NSL Jaeger Light Infantry (new sculpt) Rifle Pack A - 8 figures (4 different poses)* £3.00 per pack. SEE SPECIAL LAUNCH OFFER BELOW!
SG15-N42 NSL Jaeger Light Infantry (new sculpt) Rifle Pack B - 8 figures (4 different poses)* £3.00 per pack. SEE SPECIAL LAUNCH OFFER BELOW!
* SPECIAL LAUNCH OFFER: for the show, AND then for a strictly limited time on mailorder, all the standard 8-figure Rifle Troops packs listed here will contain TEN figures instead of eight, as we're giving you TWO FREE SAW GUNNERS with each Rifles pack!
Thanks for reading, hope to see many of you at Newbury Racecourse this Saturday (10th)!
Jon (GZG), Thurs. 8th Sept 2016.
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...
