No, the Old Ones spawned the Slaan in the First Spawning to act as apprentices and servants in effect, before the collapse of the polar gates. When the gates collapsed, the Old Ones disappeared and chaos seeped into the world the Slaan remained.

I`m pretty sure the slaan were their own race in 40k as well, but they no longer exist in fluff.

I don`t know what their current 40k status is, or if they even have one. I know there was an image in the 4th ed rulebook of a thing called a slaani but I don`t know if they are at all related. This thing certainly didn`t resemble the slaan of WHFB.

Indeed; I am looking at them in Rogue trader as I type (p194-6 if anyone wants to look them up).

They have many similarities to the Old Ones, e.g. genetic manipulation, planet seeding, but have now regressed to a tribal caste system.
