UPDATE - FRIDAY 29th April 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.
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.

UPDATE - MONDAY 11th April 2016:
SALUTE 2016 - EXCEL CENTRE, LONDON DOCKLANDS, SATURDAY APRIL 16th.
Sorry for being a little late with posting this info - I've STILL got the flu-like bug that has kept me down for nearly six weeks now, and over the last couple of weeks it's been a real struggle trying to get some stock made ready for the show. I'm MOSTLY back up to date with mailorders, though there are still a few delayed ones that I have to finish, and some of those placed in the last week or so will not go out until after the show next weekend.
The good news is that we WILL be at Salute (barring any further disasters of course), our stand is TB02, which is the same location as we were in last year - you come in the new main entrance (at the side of the hall), turn immediate LEFT and we have the end stand on the first "island".
I had a number of things planned for this year that simply haven't happened due to the events of the past few months, but there will still be some new releases - the long-promised MOONGRUNT range expansions that I held back due to all the problems here WILL be out at the show, along with the new Heavy Weapons releases for the Xar ("Chitters").
The big news is that we will have a LIMITED QUANTITY of new FULL THRUST GAME BOXES, a complete boxed starter game produced between GZG and the great guys at MECHWORLD in Germany, who will be at SALUTE running demos of FT using some really amazing illuminated gaming tables!
The new STARTER BOX contains TWO fleets of our FT starships (the NSL and the alien "Crusties"), plus a new starter rulebook, two fleet data sheets, two non-permanent markers, a tape measure and ten "custom" D6 all in a great new box design!
ONE random box of the stock on sale will have a special note inserted giving the lucky buyer of that particular box a special bonus!
We should also have some extras copies of the new starter rulebook from the box set available for separate sale, AND we will be running a special discount promotion on additional FT ships for anyone who buys one of the boxed sets on the day.
OK, I'm getting back to stock casting so that you all have something to buy from us on Saturday - hope to see lots of you there, old faces and new!
Jon (GZG), Monday 11th April 2016.
UPDATE - TUESDAY 15th March 2016:
JUST ONE THING AFTER ANOTHER…..
After everything else that has happened over the last couple of months, now I've been out of action for the last ten days with a nasty flu-like virus of some sort…..
I'm just starting to get over it and be able to spend a few hours a day out in the workshop again, trying to work on the massive orders backlog; can I please thank you all yet again for your great patience, as I still have a huge pile of orders dating from February before I can even start to make inroads into the March ones.
I have had just a couple of customers asking to cancel orders, and this is of course fine - if you feel you've waited long enough already, then I'm happy to cancel and refund if you can't wait any longer, BUT, if you do want to to cancel an order please LET ME KNOW DIRECTLY rather than simply cancelling it on the store - if I don't notice that you've done it, then I can't sort out the refund for you!
One major casualty of all this is my attendance at Sheffield Triples this coming weekend - I was all booked to be there as usual, but the illness has meant I've had to cancel; sincere apologies to anyone who was hoping to see us there, but if the Gods are willing we will be back again in 2017.
I will post further updates as the backlog pile hopefully starts to go down a little - till then, thank you all once more for your support and patience!
Jon (GZG), Tuesday 15th March 2016.
UPDATE - SUNDAY 28th February 2016:
MAILORDER SITUATION UPDATE, PLEASE READ.........
Hello all, please accept my thanks again for all the thoughts and good wishes that have been sent in email and in orders over the past few weeks.
Things are now getting back to normal on a personal level, which means I can also start to make progress with work (GZG) matters…. For reasons that most of you already know (those who don't, it's explained in the earlier updates below) I have lost a huge amount of work time over January and February - while I have been able to get some orders processed, I've been able to produce almost no stock besides what was immediately required for the orders that have gone out. The result of this is that now, when I have a VERY large pile of orders to process (which will only get bigger over the next 24 hours) and very low stock levels across most ranges.
I have therefore had to make the decision to stop trying to piecemeal-cast items just to fill individual orders, because that way I will only fall further behind; what I will be doing over the next couple of weeks is working through all my stock codes and refilling in bulk, as I would before a show - as and when I get all the item codes made that are necessary for a particular order, that order will be packed and mailed.
The result of this is that some orders may not go out for another week or two at least, even some that were placed earlier in February. I apologise for this, as you all know I don't like to keep customers waiting - but it is the only way I can see of getting through the backlog. The best I can say is that as soon as all the items for your order are ready, it will go immediately.
The events of the last couple of weeks have also meant that the previously promised new releases - the Moongrunt and Xar packs - are still not up on the store, as I have not had the necessary time to fettle the moulds ready for quantity production. These will get done and released as soon as I can get to them, but right now the already-placed orders must take priority.
Thank you all again for your patience and understanding - I WILL get everything back to normal service as soon as I can possibly do so.
Jon (GZG), Sunday 28th Feb. 2016.
UPDATE - MONDAY 15th February 2016:
ANOTHER RATHER IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT....
I'm afraid that things are still rather chaotic here at present, as my mother passed away on Friday 12th Feb, which means that the next week or more are going to be largely taken up with making all the necessary arrangements, many phone calls and form-filling.... Those of you who have been through such things yourselves will know just how much work this entails, and how many things need to be dealt with. I WILL also be doing my best to get at least some orders dispatched (short and simple ones that can be done quickly may well go out ahead of any large, complex ones, just to reduce the number of overdue ones that I have here) but please be patient if yours is delayed a while - I will get them all done eventually! Remember the voucher expiry at the end of February, and you are all welcome to get your orders placed - just please don't expect the usual very fast turnaround, at least until things are back to normal again.
Thanks to you all,
Jon (GZG), Monday 15th Feb 2016.
UPDATE - MONDAY 1st February 2016:
NEWS and NEW RELEASES!
Good grief, is it really February already? Doesn't seem five minutes since Christmas, and it won't be long before the next one.
January has been a difficult month, with my mother coming out of hospital and having to be found a nursing home place, and I'm afraid that family and personal stuff has used up a lot of the time that I had hoped to use to work on GZG projects.....
BUT on a brighter note, I have still managed to get some more NEW RELEASES almost ready for launch - watch out for them appearing here in the next couple of days; the first two packs of MOONGRUNT figures have been extremely successful sales-wise, so they will very shortly be joined by no less than SIX more packs - three each for the US Lunar Marines and the Chinese PLASF - each force will get a second pack of rifle poses, a pack of RF Support Laser gunners (SAWs) and a pack of Rocket Launcher troops! Plus, the XAR ("Chitters") are getting some heavy fire-support in the form of Heavy Beam Cannon teams and RAM Launcher (mortar) teams!
On the mailorder side, I've been keeping up with dispatches as best I can, but things have slipped a little towards the end of January due to circumstances outside my control (the aforementioned family stuff) - my apologies to anyone still waiting for their order, I'm working hard this week to get back up to date as much as possible; thanks to you all for your patience.
Please check back here very soon, as the new releases will be posted as soon as photos have been taken of them.....
Jon (GZG), 1st Feb 2016.
UPDATE - SUNDAY 3rd January 2016:
NEW YEAR DISCOUNT VOUCHERS ARE NOW LIVE!
All the New Year Discount Vouchers that have been sent out are now entered up on the store and are LIVE, so you can start redeeming them any time you wish! Those of you who have had and used the vouchers in previous years will know the drill by now, but for those of you who don't, you need to read and follow the instructions below.
Place your order on the store, and once you are 100% happy that you've ordered exactly what you want then go to the VIEW BASKET step. On this page you will see a box marked "Add Gift Certificate or Coupon" - type your unique voucher code into this box, and then click the purple "UPDATE BASKET" button.
It is important that you enter your code in the correct format and case: each code consists of THREE LETTERS IN UPPER CASE, followed (without a space) by a FIVE digit number. Please ensure that you don't mix up letters and numbers, for example an uppercase "O" with the digit "0", or an uppercase "I" with the digit "1".
When you do this, you should see the discount amount displayed in RED. Now click the "CHECKOUT" button, and enter your details on the name and address page - the VAT and shipping amounts will be altered according to the delivery country you enter - and if you are happy with everything then you can proceed to the payment step as usual.
Please note that the % discount will be deducted from the goods subtotal (and of course from the VAT on the goods in the case of UK/EU orders), but will NOT be deducted from the shipping charge; sadly, offering a discount price doesn't magically make the goods any lighter to post!
If you do NOT see the expected discount displayed in red, then please DO NOT COMPLETE THE ORDER, check you have followed the steps above (especially clicking the "Update Basket") and if there is still a problem then please contact me by email. Please note that each voucher code is good for only ONE use, and after you have used it on an order (even if that order is not paid for) the store will reject further uses of the code - if you do make an error don't panic, just contact me and I can re-set the code so you can try again!
UPDATE - FRIDAY 1st January 2016:
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
While I'm still technically "closed" till Monday, I've been doing as much as possible this week to clear the remaining December orders - those that haven't gone out yet should do so in the next few days. Because I've been working on the orders, I haven't yet had time to enter and activate all the New Year Voucher Codes (every one is unique so has to be individually "created" on the store), but they WILL be done over this weekend so that you can start using them from Monday 4th. Please check back here again then for full details of how to use your vouchers.
Let's hope we all have a good 2016!
UPDATE - WEDNESDAY 23rd DECEMBER 2015:
ALMOST CHRISTMAS, AND LAST DAY OF SPECIAL OFFERS......
The 2015 Christmas Specials (as detailed below - lots of extra FREE stuff in your order, PLUS a New Year discount voucher) END TONIGHT, strictly at 12:00 MIDNIGHT UK TIME, so if you're in the US, Canada or elsewhere please remember the time difference. Thanks to all those of you who have placed your orders already, I've dispatched as many as I possibly could and will continue to pack and dispatch until the remaining ones are cleared - I will be working on through the period between Christmas and New Year to clear any outstanding pre-Christmas orders, but any NEW orders that arrive after midnight tonight will NOT be processed until after I re-open on Monday 4th January 2016.
I'd like to say a very big thank-you to all those who have been in touch directly, or added notes to your orders, about the family crisis mentioned in my last update below - my elderly mother is in hospital following a major stroke, and that has naturally thrown a lot of plans for Christmas and the New Year into chaos... but we will work on through it, and hopefully 2016 will bring happier news.
I'd also like to take this opportunity to once more wish all my customers and friends, old and new, a very Happy Christmas and a safe, peaceful and healthy New Year!
Jon (GZG), 23rd December 2015.
UPDATE - WEDNESDAY 16th DECEMBER 2015:
IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ.....
I'm afraid that some orders are taking a bit longer than expected at the moment, due to a close family member being rushed into hospital at the weekend.... as a result I'm falling further behind with order dispatches than would normally be the case at this time of year. If you've placed an order and not yet had an email advising you of dispatch, please know that I will get to it as soon as I possibly can - thanks for your understanding.
Jon (GZG), Weds. 16th December 2015.
THIRD (and last!) UPDATE FOR TODAY - THURSDAY 26th NOVEMBER 2015:
KRA'VAK, XAR and MOONGRUNT!
As promised, all the rest of the WARFARE releases are NOW UP ON THE STORE - FIVE packs of new-sculpt Kra'Vak including SAW gunners, support weapons and command, FOUR packs of the Xar ("Chitters") again with various support weapons and command/leader packs, and the two first-release MOONGRUNT packs - one each of the US Marine Expeditionary Unit Luna (MEUL) and the Chinese PLASF (People's Liberation Army Space Force)!
Click on the pics of the latest items featured at the foot of this page, or just go to the relevant category pages in the 15mm infantry listings (you'll find a new category for the MOONGRUNT packs, and the Xar are listed both under the "Characters and Miscellaneous Aliens" and also on their own new page).
Thanks for reading all of today's updates!
FURTHER UPDATE - THURSDAY 26th NOVEMBER 2015:
CHRISTMAS SPECIALS NOW RUNNING!
Our 2015 Xmas Specials are NOW ON as of today, THURSDAY 26th NOVEMBER, and they will run until MIDNIGHT (2400 Hours) UK time on Wednesday 23rd December. This year I've kept to the same offers that have been so successful and popular over many years, with one difference - I've simplified the qualifying criteria for the offers to use 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 this time round, 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 - usually much more stuff than you'd get from a simple discount offer!
Sometimes we 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 your pre-Xmas stuff 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 2016 - so the voucher codes will become "live" on the store on Friday the 1st of January 2016, and any un-used ones will expire at Midnight (UK time) on Monday the 29th February 2016. 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 are placed no later than the first week of December if you want any real hope of them arriving before Christmas.
I will continue to dispatch orders up to Wednesday 23rd of December - after that date we will be CLOSED for the Christmas/New Year break, re-opening on Monday 4th January 2016. The webstore will remain "open" throughout the Christmas period so you can still place orders, but they won't be processed and dispatched until after the 4th.
Thanks to you all for your support and valued custom through 2015.
Wishing you all a great Christmas (or whatever other festival you choose to celebrate around this time of year) and a safe, happy and gaming-filled 2016!
All the best,
Jon (GZG), 26/11/2015.
UPDATE - THURSDAY 26th NOVEMBER 2015:
HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY to all our customers "Across the Pond"!
And of course to anyone else who celebrates this day wherever in the world you may be!
There will be a much longer update later today, but for now I just wanted to mention that the NEW HEAVY-LIFT VTOLs are now available for mailorder at last! Find them either in the new release photos at the foot of this news page, or in the "VTOLs and Flying Vehicles" section of the 15mm vehicles pages.
OK, more later when I've uploaded all the rest of the WARFARE figures releases - the Kra'Vak, Xar and "MOONGRUNT" new packs!
UPDATE - THURSDAY 12th NOVEMBER 2015:
NEW RELEASES AT WARFARE THIS WEEKEND!
OK, I promised to let you know what new stuff I'd have available at WARFARE this weekend (Rivermead Leisure Centre, Reading, Saturday and Sunday from 10am).
Well, the main thing is LOTS MORE ALIENS! There will be FOUR new packs of the Xar ("Chitters") - each pack contains 3 different two-part figure poses. We have a "Leaders" pack with Beam Pistols; a "Command/comms" pack with a leader with Beam Rifle, a comms tech with data unit and an observer with vision enhancer; plus two support weapon packs: one with Quad-Barrel Heavy Beamers, one with Grenade Projectors!
Then we have FIVE more packs of new-sculpt KRA'VAK to add to the recently-released K-Rifle packs: full packs of SAW troops with heavy RF K-guns, a pack each bareheaded or with mask/helmets, Support Weapon packs (again bareheaded or helmeted) with a mix of 3-cell missile launchers and sniping/antimateriel "long rifles"; plus a pack of (bareheaded) Command/comms figures consisting of two Officer poses with K-pistols, a kneeling observer and a standing figure with data unit.
Also on the figures front, there will be the first two packs of the all-new MOONGRUNT line - vacuum-suited figures for near-future Luna combat, US Marine Expeditionary Unit Luna (MEUL) against the Chinese PLASF (People's Liberation Army Space Force); launched at the show (and available in very limited quantities) will be the first pack for each side, each of six suited figures with laser rifle/low-V grenade Launcher combo weapons and separate suit backpacks!
Last but far from least, we will have limited numbers of the largest single all-metal kit we've ever produced - a wonderful Heavy Lift VTOL with interchangeable payload pods, masterfully sculpted by MMG. This kit weighs in at 400g of metal, and will be available with a choice of either four Jet Lift units (the same engines as on our V15-48/49 VTOLs) or four larger ducted fan units (which will also retro-fit onto the V15-48/49 models for extra variety!). For this show we have just the standard general purpose transport pod cast up for the craft to carry, but alternative pod designs will be available soon (Gunship Pod, Command Pod etc). The complete VTOL is 110mm wide (across the Ducted Fan option, 100mm with the Jet units) and almost 120mm long from chin gun to tail fins!
UPDATE - TUESDAY 20th OCTOBER 2015:
NEW RELEASES NOW AVAILABLE FOR MAILORDER!
All is nicely back up to date after all the sorting out post-SELWG, order turnround is back to normal fast service, and I've just uploaded the SELWG new releases (and more!) to the store, so you can now order them here!
The new-sculpt JAPANESE POWER ARMOUR (SG15-J31), FSE POWER ARMOUR (SG15-F31) and HELMETED KRA'VAK (SG15-K11) are now fully available, just scroll to the foot of this page and click on them (or check the relevant 15mm infantry pages of course).
Also AVAILABLE NOW are three more V15-ACC range turrets and accessory packs - some twin-barrel autocannon turrets (V15-ACC32, 4 to a pack), tribarrel mini-turrets (V15-ACC31, 6 to a pack) and Multi-Sensor package mounts (V15-ACC30, 4 to a pack) - these are also in the new items section at the foot of this page, or under "15mm Buildings and Scenics - Accessories".
Thanks for reading!
UPDATE - SUNDAY 20th SEPTEMBER 2015:
MORE NEW RELEASES NOW ON STORE!
Following the release of the Infantry packs (including the Kra'Vak and new Xar aliens) a couple of days ago, I have just uploaded the new vehicles, drones and accessory packs that were released at Colours - the new variants of the Bulldog trucks are up with two new chassis options, the Tri-Track high mobility tread system (V15-110A, B, C) and the Fan-Truck GEV variants (V15-111A, B, C) - both types available with Personnel Carrier (A), Command Van (B) and Cargo Van (C) bodies as used in V15-42A, B and C respectively. You'll notice that I don't yet have photos up of each separate variant, that is temporary till I get the chance to assemble display models of each type...
The new Hornet Drones are available in either Fan (V15-108) or Grav (V15-109) types, both with a vicious little "sting in the tail" courtesy of a rapid-fire tribarrel!
In the V15-ACC Accessories range we have SEVEN new packs of weapon mounts and mini-turrets, all ideal for conversions and extra weapon mounts on our own vehicle range or indeed anyone else's; the seven codes are:
V15-ACC23 Remote mini-turret type A - single autocannon - pack contains SIX one-piece turrets with single barrel autocannon.
V15-ACC24 Remote mini-turret type B - rotary (gatling) MG - pack contains SIX one-piece turrets with rotary heavy machinegun.
V15-ACC25 Remote mini-turret type C - Flame or Water Cannon - pack contains SIX one-piece turrets with single projector for either flamethrower or water-cannon.
V15-ACC26 Remote mount type D - single autocannon - pack contains FOUR two-piece weapon systems each of single barrel autocannon and mount.
V15-ACC27 Remote mount type E - plasma gun - pack contains FOUR two-piece weapon systems each of single barrel Plasma Cannon and mount.
V15-ACC28 Remote mount type F - twin machineguns - pack contains FOUR three-piece weapon systems each of mount and pair of heavy machineguns.
V15-ACC29 Remote mount type G - twin 4-round missile pods - pack contains FOUR three-piece weapon systems each of mount and pair of 4-round missile pods.
For all these, scroll down to the foot of this page and click on the pics!
UPDATE - FRIDAY 18th SEPTEMBER 2015:
NEW RELEASES NOW ON STORE!
All the INFANTRY packs that were release last weekend at Colours have now been uploaded and are ready for ordering! That's SIX packs of PAU (including the new Special Forces in bush hats), FOUR packs of Mercs in Helmets, plus the first pack each of the NEW-SCULPT KRA'VAK and the XAR, which is what we've now named the "chitters"!
More details later....
UPDATE - THURSDAY 10th SEPTEMBER 2015:
The final pre-COLOURS update....
All stock is cast, just putting the displays of the new 15mm items together tonight - I know a lot of you have been awaiting news of the new releases for the show, so here we go….
In no particular order, there are:
Four new packs for the MERCENARIES range, this time in HELMETS - two rifle packs, one of SAWs and one of RPGs/LAWs. All these figures are in a fairly generic "bone dome" helmet with a half-visor covering the eyes. They are not just head-swaps, most figures also have modifications to their slung kit and equipment to give maximum variety to your units.
SIX new packs for the PAN-AFRICAN UNION forces - Command, HMGs and Mortars all with troops in Jungle Caps, plus three packs of SPECIAL FORCES SCOUTS - two mixed packs of rifles and SAWs, plus a mounted pack - these figures are all in floppy bush-hats, some figures are bearded and some clean-shaven, and they will have plenty of other uses besides the PAU force they are designed for - they will mix perfectly into the Mercenaries range, for example.
Moving away from the Human troop types, we have new releases previewing not one but TWO alien forces - we've started on a major re-sculpt programme for our ever-popular KRA'VAK, and we have the first pack for sale at the show - SG15-K10, Kra'Vak adult male phase Warriors with K-rifles; normally this pack will have the usual 8 figures (2 each of 4 poses), but for a VERY LIMITED TIME this preview pack will contain two extra FREE figures with Rapid-Fire Support K-Guns - so you'll get 10 figures for the price of 8!
Our other alien release is SO new that I haven't yet decided on the final name for them - for the time being I'm calling them the "Chitters", an eight-limbed race of very insectoid appearance….. they come 3 to a pack, with separate 6-legged lower halves and two-armed torsos holding energy weapons - each pack has one each of three different arm/weapon/head poses. I think these will be popular, and there are plans for plenty more with heavy and special weapons!
Now, onto the hardware….. we have two variants of HORNET DRONES, nasty little flying hunter-killers with a tribarrel "sting in the tail" - Fan and Grav versions are available, and you get two (of the same type) per pack. A cast metal base is included for each model, but you will need to provide your own length of thin wire to mount the drones in flight poses.
On the vehicle front, we have new versions of our ever-popular Bulldog trucks with new mobility options (courtesy of the sculpting talents of MMG) - new chassis are available with either a "Tri-Track" (four triangular tread units for mobility over very bad terrain) or a Surface-Effect Hover version with four large round fan units. Each of these new chassis types is available with any of the usual Bulldog top units from the V15-40, 41 and 42 options, giving a large range of open and closed body types to choose from.
Now, last but not least, also from the workbench of MMG we have SEVEN different options of small mini-turrets and remote weapons mounts in our V15-ACC accessories range! These will be enormously useful for adding to or converting many different vehicle types, ours and other manufacturers'.
There are three types of mini-turret (single autocannon, rotary cannon and flamethrower or water cannon!) which all come 6 to a pack, and four different options of remote mounts - single Autocannon, Plasma Cannon, Twin MGs and Twin Missile Pods - which all come 4 to a pack. All packs are £3.00 each (inc VAT).
Phew - that's about it, I think…. now, we will only have LIMITED STOCKS of some of the items above, so come and see us early in the show - in fact as an extra incentive for you to make a beeline for the First Floor and find us, anyone who comes to us in the FIRST HOUR of the show (from opening at 10am till 11am) will get an EXTRA FREE GIFT with their purchases - just tell us where you read about it and we'll sort out something nice for you…..!
Don't forget - all show sales are CASH ONLY, and we are on the FIRST FLOOR this year.
See you there!
UPDATE - TUESDAY 21st July 2015:
MORE NEW 15mm STARGRUNT INFANTRY!
Another batch of NEW RELEASES, all AVAILABLE NOW! EIGHT new packs across three of our popular SG forces. See the "new products" pics at the foot of this page, or just search the relevant sections of the 15mm Stargrunt listings.

EXTRA UPDATE - THURSDAY 4th June 2015:
As promised earlier today, here are the NEW RELEASES, all AVAILABLE NOW! See the "new products" pics at the foot of this page, or just search the relevant sections of the 15mm Stargrunt listings.
NEW 15mm MERCENARY/IRREGULAR TROOPS:
The first packs are now available in an extensive new range of figures that can serve many purposes within your army - with a wide variety of uniforms and headgear, and carrying a mix of various low- to mid-tech weaponry, we’ve called them “Mercs”, but these troops can represent individualistic but highly trained Mercenary units, Special Forces teams or PMCs (Private Military Contractors), or equally be irregular militia, resistance fighters or almost anything else that you want them to be! There is a good mix of male and female troops within the range, and hopefully almost everyone will be able to find a role for a group of these attached to their army, or even as a complete force in their own right.
Every different figure sculpt in this range is highly individual in style, and they also lend themselves perfectly to further customisation with some simple head swaps using our SG15-XH1 and XH2 “head packs”.
AVAILABLE NOW: ALL PACKS £3.00 each (inc VAT) or £2.50 ex VAT for non-EU customers.
SG15-M01 Mercs rifles pack A - 8 figures, 2 each of 4 sculpts: 3 male figures and 1 female figure, all with various rifles and headgear (beret, field caps, bareheaded).
SG15-M02 Mercs rifles pack B - 8 figures, 2 each of 4 sculpts: all female figures, with various rifles, all bareheaded.
SG15-M03 Mercs rifles pack C - 8 figures, 2 each of 4 sculpts: all male figures, with various rifles, all bareheaded.
SG15-M04 Mercs squad support pack with SAWs/LMGs - 8 figures, 2 each of 4 sculpts: male and female figures advancing, male and female figures prone firing.
COMING SOON: further support packs with RPGs and rocket launchers, marksmen (and women) with sniping rifles, command groups and “character” leader figures, groundmount heavy weapons and crews, gunners and weapons for the backs of trucks and pickups (ideal to make the “technicals” so commonly used by irregular forces) and more!
Other NEW RELEASES available NOW: (All £3.00 per pack inc VAT, 2.50 ex VAT):
For the CDF (Colonial Defence Force) range:
SG15-C22 CDF mounted scouts in field caps (2 horses, 2 riders in different poses).
For the FSE Colonial Legion troops:
SG15-F24 FSE Colonial Legion troops in KEPI - Command and Comms pack (8 figures, 2 each of 4 different sculpts).

More new items to follow soon in several of our most popular 15mm ranges!
ADDITIONAL UPDATE - FRIDAY 27th FEBRUARY 2015:
NEW FT STARSHIP RELEASES NOW AVAILABLE!
Four NEW codes of Merchant Ships (or "targets", as some of you like to consider them...): the FT353A Bergen Starlighter is the first of an all-new design, which will shortly be joined by several variant codes with different cargo modules; FT338C, D and E are new variants of our popular "Tradewind" class ships with different cargo module loads AND an all-new drive module - this new drive unit will also now be supplied with the original Tradewind class ships (FT338A and B) unless the old design is specifically requested on ordering.
Click on the pictures at the foot of this page, or just go to the "Merchant, Civilian and Support Ships" page in the store.
UPDATE - FRIDAY 27th FEBRUARY 2015:
NEW 15mm RELEASES NOW AVAILABLE!
As promised in yesterday's update, the new releases (in 15mm) are now up on the store and fully available. We have some lovely little Drone UAVs, designed and sculpted by MMG, in two types - a fan-drone with quad fan nacelles (V15-106 A to D), and a Grav drone with quad lift vanes (V15-107 A to D) - so you can pick whichever type best suits your army's tech level. Each drone is available in FOUR different weapon load variants - a heavy autocannon, a Plasma cannon, a pair of four-round missile packs or a pair of heavy machine-guns. Either click on the pics in the new products section at the foot of this page, or go to the "Drones, Remotes and Bots" page of the 15mm listings.
In addition to the eight versions of drone, we also have SIX new packs of 15mm troops - one (SG15-C20) for the Colonial Defence (CDF) of troopers with short assault-carbine or autoshotgun type weapons (as already used on the command and weapons crew packs for the CDF); the Pan-Africans (PAU) get a pack of MOUNTED SCOUTS (SG15-P17), with all-new riders on terran-stock horses. Last but not least, the FSE COLONIAL LEGION gets FOUR long-awaited new packs: with figures in Helmets we have a Command and Comms pack (SG15-F14), a RAM Mortars pack (SG15-F15) and a Plasma Cannons pack (SG15-F16), plus one pack of Plasma cannon teams with crew in Kepis (SG15-F26).
Further updates, Sunday 23rd November 2014:

IMPORTANT NEWS RE OUR SG25 RANGE OF 25mm FIGURES:
As some of you may know already, we recently agreed with Eureka Miniatures the termination of our long-standing license production agreement which saw Eureka producing a selection of the GZG ranges (including our "old-style" FT starship fleets) for sale in the Australian/NZ markets.
The most important effect of this decision as far as our own customers are concerned is that we will be ceasing production of a number of the lines in our SG25 infantry range, because these figures were designed by or for Eureka and have been produced by GZG under a reciprocal licensing agreement.
The 25mm figure ranges that are affected are as follows:
All of the SGZ (New Israeli) range
All of the SGO (OUDF) range
All of the SGD (Dutch) range
All of the SGB (Indonesian) range
Part of the SGP (Pan African) range - figure codes from SGP-09A onwards
Part of the SGU (UNSC Hardsuit) range - figure codes from SGU-14A to SGU-20A
Part of the SGE (Eurasian) range: the Heavy Infantry only, figure codes from SGE-50 to SGE-71
Part of the SGA (NAC) range: the Gurkhas only, figure codes from SGA-61 to SGA-72D
Part of the SGN (NSL) range: the JAGERS only, figure codes from SGN-41 to SGN-62
The "EBH" Alien Bounty Hunters figures (EBH-1,2,3)
All other SG25 code figures will remain in production as normal, but as of December 31st 2014 all the items on the list above will be removed from our webstore, and will not be available from us even as special order items; they will, as far as I know, remain available direct from Eureka Miniatures for the foreseeable future.
So, especially if you are in the UK or EU, if you want any SG25 figures from the ranges listed above to complete your forces, and want to get them from us, you have just over one month in which to purchase them before they are gone from sale.
PLEASE NOTE THAT NONE OF OUR SG15 (15mm) FIGURES ARE AFFECTED BY THIS CHANGE - ALL THE 15mm FIGURES ARE OUR (GZG) SCULPTS!
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.
