Two major problems with this art piece: color saturation and proportion. If not for these, this actually would have been pretty neat to view despite having little resemblance (if any) to G1 Orion Pax.

I'm not so sure about that. Seems to be a stretch to even say it was inspired off of that episode, but maybe I'm missing something.

I'll admit, I had to look up 'Judge Dredd'.
Anyway... I mostly agree with you. It just isn't the Orion Pax that we've gotten to be so familiar with since the first War Within comic. However, I would be open to an exploration of the original background of Orion Pax from War Dawn.
Probably wouldn't seem as interesting, though. At least from IDW's point of view.
