Default Warhammer Trivia Quiz UPDATED AND FINISHED!

I have felt it has been a while since the last quiz. So I had a look into my vast stack of Warhammer books and other trivia and picked out a few questions for you.
The rules are as such:
You have about 2 weeks to get all the answers an PM them to me. The Quiz will end on 06.11.08.
The questions are in levels which awards different amounts of points.

Easy = 1p
Medium = 2p
Hard = 3p

And the bonus question gives you "Extra Credit".
You can get a maximum of 30 points.
If you reach over a certain (secret ) amount of points you will be awarded +1 Karma. Well written answers are encouraged, and will be credited as well.
(If there are any questions and explanations needed about the quiz, give me a PM).

And with no further ado.
GO!

Easy.
1. Who wrote the book "Kill Team"?
2. What was earlier known as Screamer Killers?
3. What is the founding legion of the Flesh Tearers?
4. What are the Bad Moons known for?
5. What aspect did Fuegan found?

Medium.
1. What does a Spiker plant do to it's victims?
2. What is a Geller Field?
3. Who are the four known C'tan?
4. Who is Urien Rakarth?
5. A Spear of Khaine is what?

Hard.
1. What is the proper punishment, stated by the Munitiorum, for defacing your weapon without the permission of an Officer?
2. What was the former name of the Angels of Ecstasy?
3. How heavy is a Devilfish Troop Carrier?
4. Who drew the "Lone Wolves"? (My all time favourite comic)
5. Ngalot is Ratskin for what?

Ded Ard Bonus Question:
Who is the last recorded owner of the painting Mona Lisa, in the world of 40k?
And what is the source for your answer?

With your third question in the hard section, do you mean weight of the model or of the fish in GW fluff?

I think it means the fluff, I looked through every Tau book I owned before I finally found it (I really did find it in the last place I could think of). I did think about just sending in the product weight and detailing my answer and hope it was a "well written answer" for credit.

I indeed meant "fluff" weight. As the weight of the plastic model would vary with modeling, I didn't actually see that as a reasonable thing to ask about.

The Quiz is now over!

(can accept answers for a few more hours)

The answers and results will be posted after work tomorrow.
Many fine answers. Thank you for your participation everybody.

UPDATE!

Oopsie! Gotten delayed to tomorrow morning.
I was called on a quest to free the Norse God Njord from the captivity in a magic circle in the basement of a mad college professor, who lived in a small cabin in the countryside.

ZE ANSWERS ARE IN!
We have 10 contestants, and many have done a very good job by answering my questions.
We have three(3) winners, who have managed to get a score over the "secret", set limit of 24 points.
Several were close, and have given very filling answers, so all I can say is "Better Luck Next Time".

And with no further ado, here are the correct answers:

Easy
1. Gav/Gavin Thorpe
2. Tyranid Carnifex
3. The Blood Angles Chapter
4. Rich due to fast growing teef, flashiest gear, large amount of Wyrdboyz and Flashgitz and several other things I've acknowledged as decent answers.
5. The Fire Dragons

Medium
1.They release a mutagenic chemical into the bloodstream that reforms the victim's body into that of a spiker.
2. The Geller Field creates a 'bubble of real space' around the ship. This field protects the ship and its occupants from the hostility of the warp itself, as well as from the predation of warp entities, such as daemons, as it travels through the warp.
3. The Nightbringer, The Deceiver, The Outsider and The Void Dragon.
4. Urien Rakarth is the master of the Dark Eldar Haemonculi sect.
5. The Spear of Khaine is an Eldar Ulthwé unit, which consists of an Avatar and between 2 and 5 Warlocks.

Hard
1. Any soldier who defaces his weapon with unauthorised 'kill markings', 'kill counts' or slogans (conspicuously pro-Imperial ones excepted) will be flogged. (Art. 9475/35j).
2. The Sons of Ulthunas.
3. 14 Tonnes
4. Karl Richardson
5. "Burdensome child." (What?! Noone reads Necromunda books anymore? Get on it, and GET ON IT NOW! Start with Salvation or Junction and take it from there).

Extra Credit question.
None managed to answer this correctly. Several nice tries, but no cigar.
The owner is none other than Malcador the Sigillite, the First Lord of Terra. The source is ZE ANSWERS ARE IN!
We have 10 contestants, and many have done a very good job by answering my questions.


AND THE WINNERS ARE!

1. Masked Thespian 27 points. (And made his entry 33 minutes and 10 seconds after the quiz was official! o_o)
2. Xanzar and Third Sphere at 24 points
--------------------------------------------
3. Korill and Lord Solar at 21 points
4. Merqu at 19 points
5. wesswll at 18 points
6. auxiliary priest at 17 points
7. D Black at 4 points

Congratulations!

(anyone got a grievance about the answers or anything similar, please. Give me a PM )
