I don't think 40k would exist as it does today w/out Dune.

It would be fun to list all the IPs and altered historical armies that WH40K and WHFB blatantly ripped off back in the day, which is what made those games so interesting IMO. Rick P and company were brilliant back then.

Judge Dredd
Lord of the Rings
Starship Troopers (the novel)

And the list goes on…

Dune? Please explain.

Don't forget Terminator-androids, necrons, IG cybernetics.

Gorka Morka-Mad Max, even the names are similar.

Necromunda-paradise towers. Paradise towers-Brazil.

At a con John Rys Davies said he left Sliders because of too many movie based episodes.

There still 'borrowing' IMHO check out the definition of Tau in the appendix at the back of Dune…..

Traveller is so strongly Dumarest of Terra books that I don't think there is much room left to "steal" from Dune.
