HAPPY THANKSGIVING, and a HEADS-UP ON CHRISTMAS OFFERS! - 28/11/2019

First, a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all my US customers, may you all have a great day with family and friends and have your fill of turkey and other seasonal comestibles!

Now, just giving everyone a heads-up on the CHRISTMAS SPECIALS for this year - due to various circumstances I'm a little later than usual with getting these announced and launched, but they WILL start in just a very few days - and the latest batch of NEW RELEASES (as first seen a couple of weekends ago at WARFARE) will go up on the store at the same time - so please check back here in a day or two for further news and details.

All the best,

Jon (GZG), Thursday 28th November 2019.

WARFARE SHOW (READING) 16th/17th NOVEMBER! - 10/11/2019

We’re now less than a week away from our final show of the year, WARFARE at the Rivermead Leisure Centre in Reading, held on the 16th and 17th November. Full details of the show are HERE.

Please come along if you can for a great event, with a large number of traders (we’re in our usual spot, in the first aisle at the left side of the hall) and a load of demonstration and participation games; we will have good stocks of the usual ranges that we carry to the shows (the SG and MG15mm, plus the major FT fleets), plus some more NEW releases - see them (and buy them!) at the show before they go up on the webstore!

As normal on the run-up to a show, I will be very busy this coming week with preparations and stock production, so I’m afraid there may be some delays on mailorders - any that I can’t get dispatched before the show will go out as soon as possible after it.

This will be your last chance to see us, have a chat and buy stuff from the tradestand this year. We hope to see lots of regular faces at the show, and maybe some new ones too!

SHOW NEWS - SELWG 2019, 20th OCTOBER - 13/10/2019

Just one week to go now until the SELWG (South East London Wargames Group) show at Crystal Palace Sports Centre in South London - the event is on SUNDAY 20th OCTOBER and we will be there in our usual spot, on the main upper concourse just as you enter the show!

You can find further info and venue details here: SELWG 2019

As we had to miss COLOURS last month due to various circumstances, this will be out first chance to see and talk to customers since SALUTE - hopefully many of you who had planned to see us in Newbury will be able to make it to Crystal Palace instead.

 

I've been working very hard on making plenty of stock over the last few weeks in readiness for next weekend, and of course this coming week will be even busier, so there may be some delays to mail-orders going out (especially those containing items that I won't be casting for show stock, such as the 25mm and 6mm ranges) - any that I can't dispatch this week will get top priority as soon as I'm back from the show - thanks in advance for your patience.

 

Hope to see lots of familiar and new faces next Sunday!

 

Jon (GZG), Sunday 13th October 2019.

More New Israeli Releases! - 23/09/2019

EIGHT new packs of 15mm New Israeli forces now up on the store - for the Hardsuit Assault troops we have a pack with pistols and carbines, a pack of medics and wounded, a pack of "down" casualties plus THREE more Heavy Weapon packs: Missile systems, Plasma Cannons and Rail Mortars. In addition, a pack of all-new-design GRAV BIKES and a pack of "GOLEM" Power Armour suits! This new batch of releases pretty much completes the full range of the new-sculpt NI figures for the time being. You can find all the new packs in the NI range listing here.

UPDATED SKIN - 30/08/2019

FURTHER UPDATE 29/08/2019 - New skin has been applied to the store, two issues I have seen so far

  • First one I will blame on Jon's Apple MAC for :) some of the item descriptions have hard code in them to set the colour to black which means they cannot be seen on the new skin unless you select them, CTRL A, is the quickest way to see if the text is hidden, I think I have got most of them but if you see any more please drop me an email.
  • Second one is that the category menu does not seem to be displaying properly for some devices like tablets - this is being looked into, but if you cannot see the menu on the left please alter the skin to MICAN black till this is fixed.

Thanks, Paul

STORE UPDATES - 28/08/2019

FURTHER UPDATE, WEDS 28th:

It looks like the problems mentioned in yesterday's update below have been sorted and at the moment everything is working well - but please note that I (Jon) will be AWAY for four days this week, Thursday 29th - Sunday 1st; I won't have email access while away, so any messages to me will not get dealt with until the 2nd September; while I'm away, Paul (my web admin chap) may be doing some further upgrades to the website, possibly including a totally new "skin" for the store - so if everything suddenly changes to a completely different look over the next day or two, then in the immortal words of Lance-Corporal Jones: "DON'T PANIC!" ...It will still be basically the same store system underneath the new look.

If anyone has any immediate problems with the new version, or finds anything that doesn't work, please contact Paul directly via the email link in the Contact section - if you email me instead, then I won't see it till Sunday night so no-one will be able to act on it....

Please note that this ONLY applies to messages or problems about the actual functioning of the website and store - for anything to do with specific orders or product enquiries, please do still send those to me (Jon) and I'll deal with them as soon as possible after I'm back; Paul will not be able to deal with any questions like that.

Thanks for reading, I will be posting more info after the coming weekend.

Jon (GZG), Weds 28th August 2019.


UPDATE - TUESDAY 27th AUGUST 2019:

APOLOGIES - SOME STORE GLITCHES....

Since an upgrade to the store software version a couple of days ago we seem to be having some hassles - my apologies if part or all of the store is not working properly, it will hopefully be fixed shortly - if you're having problems accessing anything other than this homepage, please try again later!

PREVIOUS NEWS & COLOURS - 29/08/2019

UPDATE - MONDAY 19th AUGUST 2019:

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - re COLOURS...

I wanted to let everyone know about this as quickly as possible after the decision had been made and the show organisers informed - sadly, we will now NOT BE AT COLOURS (NEWBURY) THIS YEAR....

I have been all booked and ready for it, but a combination of circumstances and events beyond my control have made it impossible for me to attend this year, which is a big disappointment - I really hate having to cancel attending any show, and letting down both the attendees who expect to see us there and the show organisers who put a lot of work into the event.

All being well, we WILL be back at the show in 2020 - and this year we will still be at SELWG (Crystal Palace, London) on the 20th October and WARFARE (Reading) on the 16/17th November - so I hope that most of the people who were hoping to see us at Newbury will be able to make it to either Crystal Palace or Reading.

The good news is that I will now have a little bit more time to get some more new releases ready, so there should be more new stuff out for SELWG and WARFARE than there might otherwise have been!

Thanks for reading,

Jon (GZG), Tuesday 13th August 2019.

XAR AND MOONGRUNTS - 29/05/2016

NEW 15mm NOW ON STORE - XAR AND MOONGRUNTS!

At long last, the six new packs of MOONGRUNT figures (a second Rifle pack, a Support Laser pack and a Rocket Launcher pack for each of the US Marines and Chinese forces) AND the two XAR (Chitters) Heavy Weapons Teams are all now uploaded to the store and available to mailorder! You can find them via the "featured new items" at the foot of this page, or by going to the relevant parts of the 15mm Stargrunt listings in the main menu at top left.

Sorry they have taken a while to be put up, I wanted to get all the mailorders back up to date before I released them.

Jon (GZG) 29th April 2016.

FULL THRUST BOXED SET - 25/04/2016

UPDATE - MONDAY 25th April 2016:

THE FULL THRUST BOXED GAME IS AVAILABLE NOW!

The ENGLISH version of the FT game box, which we were selling at SALUTE last weekend, is now up on the store - click the link in the main menu to the left!

At the moment we only have a VERY LIMITED NUMBER of the sets - once these are gone there may be a bit of a delay before we have more available, so if you want one then get it now!

SALUTE went off very well, especially considering the problems of getting ready for it while still being ill.... despite feeling rough I had a great day, and since getting back I've managed to get the mailorder situation under control and almost completely up to date, so most new orders should now start going out much faster than over the last couple of months. After everything that has happened since the New Year, I'm pretty much starting 2016 again from here on, with things being back to normal!

The new figure releases we had out for SALUTE (the long-awaited Moongrunt packs and Xar heavy weapons) will go up on the store in the next few days, so watch out for them finally being available to mail-order.

More news soon, please check back here regularly for more updates!

Thanks for reading.

Jon (GZG, Monday 25th April 2016.

IMPORTANT NEWS - NEW ISRAELI & KRAVAK 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.
