This Q has been bothering me for quite some time now. How is Slanesh in Fantacy, if the eldar made it 30k years after fantacy takes place, assuming fantacy is at year 0?

Quite simple... 40k universe and fantasy universe are completely seprate, they have no relation to one another what so ever (though others belive other wise...) But they kept the chaos gods the same for unknown reason. Personally I think its to draw more people to fantasy from 40k and vice versa (oooo a fantasy nurgle army... cool! im going to start fantasy)
many people believe that the fantasy world is in the 40k universe but is cut off by some of the most violent warp storms ever. if this is so it would maybe explain some of the missing primarks one could be Sigmar. think about it.
but with slaanesh in fantasy i guess that chaos, well pure chaos can ignore warp storms but theslayer does have a valid point but. thats the best i got really if GW do it then it must have a reason?
I believed that the two universes were the same, and I was one of the believers of the warp storms theory, but now that can't be true because of GW stating officially that the two universes are completely seperate.
So, the main reason there are so many identical references between the two, IE Chaos, Khaine, The Old Ones, Eldar/Elves, Orks/Orcs, Squats/Dwarves, Dark Eldar/DarkElves, Khaine... blah blah blah is that people wanted to make 40k more familiar to people playing Fantasy Battle, in the hopes that it would draw more loyal players into buying the game and sticking with it.

DONATE TO THE FIGHT AGAINST MELANOMA
and just think how confusing it would get if there were that many completely different armies, the GW guys wouldn't be able to keep up.
Slaneesh was probably merely revived by the eldar.
In 2nd edition, warhammer fantasy was one of the worlds in warhammer 40k. They changed this in 3rd edition, i guess because it belittled warhammer fantasy.
Arent the Ork Gods Gork and Mork in FB and 40k
Yes, all the gods carry over (except the lizardmen and chaos dwarf ones but thats just because those guys don't exist in 40k. Skaven too.)
lol that's odvious, But the SM dont have a god. That doesnt carry over, does it?
