OGRE 1 OGRE MK Vb $6.95





Different Treads

On the Ogre 1 OGRE MK Vb, one of the treads are different than the other three that were in the original package.  It is even different than the treads on other two Ogre MK Vb's that I have.  Could it be a tread from the first OGRE 1 OGRE MK V?

UPDATE

After a recent comment to this post by Ashley, I looked more closely at the threads of the Grenadier Models OGRE Mk V and it bears a striking resemblance.  But this leaves the question as to why the the thread was included in the Metagaming's Microtures Martian Metals packaging.

Steve Jackson Games - Ogre Miniatures 1982

In 1982, Steve Jackson Games experimented with the idea of casting its own miniatures for both Ogre and Car Wars. The difficulty of running a casting operation proved not worth the trouble for only two lines, but 9 different packages were produced.
