Not to be confused with Bjorn the Fell Handed.
Grandfather dreadnought, also known as Grandpa Dreadnought or simply Gramps, is a popular inhabitant of /tg/, known for TYPING IN CAPS and rambling. No matter what you do or say, you will be criticised IN CAPS. He'll write you out of his will if you displease him. Likes the show 'Diagnosis murder'.
Grandpa Dreadnought, in a less meta sense is a very old and anonymous Space Marine who was interred into a Dreadnought Chassis a very long time ago. So long, in fact, it is rumored that he is older than Bjorn the Fell-Handed. This is just a rumor, of course: his records are missing from the Adeptus Mechanicus' database, no one is old enough to remember which chapter he originally belonged to, and the paint on his hull is worn out beyond recognition. He doesn't remember these things, as he's developed Alzheimer's due to his old age. This usually causes Grandpa Dreadnought to be confused as to why you're here, who the fuck you are, and if you're trying to loot his house, because he's not dead yet. Paranoia has led him to wire high explosives into the foundation and supports of his house. Just in Case.
He has a great hate of lawyers, who consistently try to execute his will and strip him of his possessions, and bears. However if you help him get rid of the bears, he'll give you the key to his liquor cabinet (full of fine rare wines) in his will, if the goddamn bears wouldn't stop breaking into it.
Recently Grandpa got an upgrade to Venerable Dreadnought, much to the concern of those who have seen the Wall of Fire his new flamer can make.
And whatever you do, don't mess with his turnip garden. Which is just starting to grow back after being sacrificed in a Chili Cook-off. Hates Rabbits, and subterranean
Grandpa Dreadnought is known to be good friends with Inquisitor Tom, and enemies with the Wraithlord Tileth, and somewhat Tankred the Dreadnought.
Recently, Grandpa Dreadnought has been involved with many hi-jinks, not the least of which has resulted in a date with a Sister of Battle. However, it seems highly likely that the date will be ruined.

Relationship with Tankred
- Grandfather Dreadnought is known to be an acquaintance of the dreadnought Tankred. During their rather loud ALL CAPS conversations he has berated the Black Templar dreadnought for his youthfulness, referred to him as a "BUM" and a "HOBO" and stated that "Tankred COULD NOT GET LAID IF [he] PAID FOR IT!"
