Default A human as a god

Everybody who playes Warhammer Fantasy Battles know Sigmar is the patrongod of the Empire, but here's my theory he is also a god of the Lizardmen called Sotek.

Sotek and Sigmar both got the twintailed comet as their symbol, they both are fighting chaos(Sigmar against all chaos, Sotek against skaven). So it is pretty obvious that Sigmar is Sotek.
I want to know what you think of this theory. Is it complete rubbish or is it true?

Default one in the same

sounds to me like it makes total sense....not very familiar with fantasy but i can see how GW likes to intertwine and subtly link stories and characters and so on...so i think it is highly plausable

early is on time...on time is late...late is unacceptable.....b-yatch!!

It could be just another tidbit the designers tossed in to make the background more interesting, or it could be a plan...

Sotek reborn as human Sigmar... later to be reborn as... ?

Sounds fun to me.

Sotek came very late, after the appearing of the twintailed comet i think.

In the lizardmen armybook it says "On one night, the full moon was touched with the colour og gore, and Sotek arose into the world, drenched in the blood of innumerable skaven sacrifices" I want to know when that happened.

Sotek appeared in the Imperial year 0. So it has to do something with Sigmars crowning.
