Default Slann...

What is a Slann I hear about them all of the time, and that they tie in with eldar fluff?

Don't you mean Slannesh? Well anyway Slannesh was a chaos god created in the warp when the Eldar fell. He succeeded rather wonderfully in killing many of the Eldar race...

Slann are a race of servants of the Old Ones, most of their background will be found in the Warhammer Fantasy Lizardmen book. The only link that I can think of for the Eldar and Slann are that both are heavily psychic (or magical, whatever) and both were created by the old ones.

Slannesh, on the other hand, is completely different. The birth of slannesh was marked by the fall, Slannesh's birthcries came form the lips of the vast majority of the Eldar race as their sols were torn from their bodies, killing them in the process.
From Galaxy ruling race, to dying vestiges of their former selves in one quick step. Heat and eat.

Yes, it would have been Slaanesh that you have heard is linked to the Eldar, the Slaan are rarely mentioned.
Hunter covered everything else!

Tomorrow you shall find either a Wailing Doom or a Witch Blade protruding out of your back. My brother collects a Slannesh army. I still havent forgiven him.

Hehe, I have considered collecting a Slaaneshi force before....that would be ironic.
