Seems as though the ork dread (and maybe all dreadnaught designs may have started in the 60 in the US.

Exhibit A (and only one, really).

Tell me that doesn't strike an amazing resemblance to a few tons of pewter (before the new models came out, of course) most up us have laying in our Heavy slots right now?

Although the newer versions are decidedly moving towards a Tau aesthetic, these are truely Orky and should be given consideration as the genesis of the kan/dread.

(I can see a little Russbot in there too!)

Later!

Hmm... I may have to have a go at making a ork dread that looks like that...
