Default What exactly is "Rangda"?

Any speculations and conjectures regarding their ture indentity/nature of this enigmatic xenoform? Untimely-awakened Necrons slumbered in Halo Stars region or Proto-Tyranid hive fleets, perhaps?

It seems only known fact regarding them is they are extremely dangerous and noxious abominations come from outer darkness of galaxy and caused wanton destructions and horrible calamities without exception and Imperium persecuted at least three or more Xenocide Campaigns, but still cannot completely exterminated/expelled them from Imperium proper-also they incurred horrific casulaties from several of Astartes Legions during 'holding actions' against them, such as Dark Angels(50,000 perished; they saved entire northern Imperium from Rangda invasion through this sacrifice), Death Guard(suffered near-catastrophic loss required lengthy rebuilding period) and Salamanders(defended Halo Stars frontier from several intrusions and likewise suffered huge casulaties).

considered delete, but eventually choose to leave.

Tried to search around but not much info about them on the net. Hard to speculate really.
In which texts did you find the references to this xenos species?

There's a very brief mention on the page for Crysos of the Death Guard.

Nope. "Rangda" make appearance all of heresy books, without exception. They also mentioned several other pages of same book. But yes, their references prone to very brief, shallow and fragmentary. Always.

Reading Know No Fear, Rangda was not mentioned. Point disproved.

No. What I mean is Forge World heresy books. NOT Black Library heresy novels. Thus point is still valid.

I'm sorry. That is all my fault. I should have been more specific...
