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.

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.
