I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    Aren’t some of those parts from the old Org Slaughterer from Demonblade?

    Humm… seems that they are. I guess not all of the Org molds were destroyed. Get a section of PVC pipe and you can remake an Atrocitor.

  • MegaMinis

    Although the ORGS were destroyed years ago due to IP infringements, some of the mechanical parts were reborn into an Atrocitor vehicle by Demon Blade miniatures that sat two human figures. More parts from the Atrocitor vehicle will also be made available to the PARTS STORE.

      I was wondering about that, since a friend of mine is the guy who worked for GW who went there and seized the molds and masters for a number of models., including one that looked just like an IG Commissar! He still had all of the molds and masters in the mold dept when they moved to Memphis, he finally destroyed them around 2006.

    And what was your friends name? Certainly he could shed more light on the “rumors” that surround the few figures that were discontinued. The ORGS were not created by Demon Blade but by Grenadier models. GW apparently did not notice them on the market until Demon Blade began producing them. Demon Blade purchased the rights to them from Grenadier when Grenadier closed their doors around 1996.

      I can ask him more about it later this week, but I remember him saying that they were accused of using Citadel parts on their models, and found guilty in court. He was given a list of the models to seize, masters and molds.

      That’s about all he told me, other than they had the molds for years after that until he finally got rid of them in 2006, shortly before he left GW. I always thought they were Demonblade models, never knew it was Grenadier who made them.
