As I mentioned before, the novel Sanctus Reach has a nifty deception of Ork tech working through a combination of advanced, innate technological know-how bred into the Mekboyz and the latent Ork psychic field (their "belief" in their technology).

It was interesting to see how the Mekboyz could innately know how to build a fusion generator, and in moments of clarity, subconsciously describe how their technology works...yet in the next breath describe the fusion generator as a "little sun".
