Out of total ignorance...

What year is it "now" in w40k?

Secondly, does anyone have any dates for the last couple of foundings?

Thanks

A few M42 dates have slipped out, but GW has also said at conventions that they have no intention of moving the timeline forward.

The 26th Founding took place in 738.M41 ~ tho whether thats when the Founding was commenced or whether thats when the chapters became operational I dont know.

The 21st Founding took place in M36, there is no real info on Foundings 22-25, but chapters have been mentioned as being founded in most of the intervening millenia, so presumably it was 1 per millenia.

I think if they were ever pushed on that they would say its the difference in warp travel and some areas are ahead of others.

Or just that the 'scribe' in question was wrong :)
