yeah, in the necrons codex it suggests having a battle (somehow) between lizardmen and necrons, as necrons c'tan are at war with the lizardmens old ones. No idea how it would work though, lizardmen would get a good flaying.


Back to business!

Warhammer was released in 1982, IIRC. 40k was released in 1987, at the same time as WHFB 3rd Ed and WHFRPS. Necrons developed from Chaos Androids, which were first spotted in Space Crusade, I think in 1991.

In other words, WHFB existed for about 10 years, and 40k for about 4 years, before Necrons were thought of.

I was quite surprised when I started playing 40k again. Oh, what's happened to the Squats and the Slann? I thought. And who the **** are the Tau and the Necrons? And why are there Dark Eldar? I thought all Eldar were 'Dark' (ie, arrogant, murderous, xenophobic pirates).

I know very little about fantasy, but don't the elves have the same gods as the Eldar? I could have sworn seeing Khaine mentioned somehwere in Warhammer Online.

In any case, are the Elven gods still around in WFB? If they are, that should prove that 40k and Fantasy are separate because my buddy Slaanesh ate all but two of them.

:not such a good detective cyclops:
Just randomly trawling the forums and it may well be the gifts of the old ones which were the prizes from the worldwide campaign 'Dark Shadows'. The winners recieved technological/magical artefacts which fitted exactly with 40k weaponry and armour.

Hope this helps

During the Albion Campaign, you practically got given 40k weapons to use, like power swords, power fists, like doubles your strength but always strike last, or ignores armours saves etc as rewards

Edit: Should of read the poster above first :p

Im fairly certain GW themselves have announced that they do not exist in the same universe.

And the Sigmar is a lost primarch theory? Too many flaws to even begin bashing it, would be the worst primarch ever aswell if he was.

In the debate of threadcromancy and threadsurrection there are no winners. Threadcromancy is the lesser of two evils though.

In response to the original question of the OP, I find that when I am drunk I can almost see a connection between the two. The next day when I'm hungover, I think that the so called "connection" is the dumbest thing I've ever heard.


I support Exterminatus.

I thought the lizardmen were created by the old ones to fight chaos?
