In breaking news, the long anticipated Ground Zero Games Christmas Sale has been announced.
This just lifted from the Ground Zero Games Webstore:
"Our 2011 Xmas Special starts from 00.01 (UK time) hours on SATURDAY 26th NOVEMBER and runs until MIDNIGHT (UK time) on Wednesday 21st December. All qualifying orders (which are all those for over £30 of product, EXCLUDING VAT AND SHIPPING*) will get TWO specials included:
"1) All orders for £30 or more of goods at list prices EXCLUDING VAT* get a FREE 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 (plus the occasional odd item that might tempt you into other ranges and scales...). What goes in the bag is OUR choice, so no cheekily asking for particular things please, but those of you who have had our previous Xmas deals will know that we give you a generous selection of things that you can actually use for your armies/fleets!
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, qualifying orders 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!

While Splintered Light specialise in Fantasy figures, they do stock a very nice Science Fiction freighter crew, and some of their Fantasy figures could easily be repurposed as low-tech alien hordes, exotic animals, or modified as character figures. Their Dark Elder make very nice Darrians with a little modification.
