Putting this entry here as it doesn't really fit with the rest of the page...the War in Heaven may have been responsible for corrupting the primordial Warp, but that's not covered well here.

  • Benevolent Precursors: The Great Old Ones (also known simply as the Old Ones) were a reptilian species with amazing technology and psychic potential. However, during the War in Heaven against the Necrons and their C'tan masters, they made many decisions out of sheer desperation with consequences that haunt the galaxy well into the present. Unfortunately, even though they won the war, it just wasn't enough to save them. In a twist, they were deliberately benevolent only to their wisest creation and most direct successors: the Eldar.

There is also the fact that current canon doesn't really mention them as reptilian (I think some games developers have said in interviews and seminars that this was a conscious decision to separate them from Fantasy's Lizardmen), playing up their mysteriousness instead.

Redoing the release information for the Lost and the Damned made me think a couple of things. 1 - Should we rename them Renegades and Heretics as that is the official title of the current Faction?; or 2 - Should they be split into their various parts (i.e. Renegades & Heretics/Traitor Guard; Mutants; Chaos Cults; etc.) with the Lost & the Damned kept as the overall title for all of them?

On another issue, should the Dark Mechanicum get a section here or on the Mechanicus page and if they do get a section would that be an appropriate place to trope Daemon Engines?

In the General Chaos Folder, the Religion of Evil folder says "Nurgle's corrupting influence, and Tzeentch's mutations".. Shouldn't it be the other way around?

No, while mutations are the purview of all the Gods, Tzeentch tends to give them out more freely as the embodiment of mutability. So that description in accurate, Nurgle's corrupting influence refers to his diseases.
