I'm listing some of major characters age in order from the oldest to youngest. Please correct me if I'm wrong. The characters must be active and "alive" in present. Characters frozen in time or MIA do not count.

I'm also listing the Big 4 chaos gods in there too. I"m not sure Khorne, Tzeentch, and Nurgle because the fluff has changed so much so I know I'm wrong here. I will put it in the list anyway so somebody can correct it.

I'm sure my age and spelling will be incorrect also. This is my best guess with out going threw all my books.

Here is the list
C'Tan - Deceiver around 65,041,000
C'Tan - Deathbringer around 65,041,000
Emperor - 50,000
Khorne 39,000 (he gain awareness during man's middle ages 1400 AD)
Tzeentch 39,000 (he gain awareness during man's middle ages 1400 AD)
Nurgle 39,000 (he gain awareness during man's middle ages 1400 AD)
Slaanesh 13,000 around the fall of Eldar
All the Chaos Demonprince Primarch 12,500 around before the great Crusade
Abandon 12,000 during the great Crusade
Typhus 12,000 about the same age as Abandon
Fabus Bile 12,000 about the same as Abandon

That is all I got. I don't know much about the Eldar or Orks. Tau would be so young compare to those above. I can't remember the names of any characters that were put into Dreadnought so I didn't list them.

Well it's hinted that Vect (the defacto Dark Eldar head-honcho) witnessed the Fall, so that would make him older than Slaanesh. While Eldrad, was already a leader of Ulthwe during the great Crusade meaning he atleast pre-dates the primarchs and space marines, and possibly might have witnessed the fall himself as well.

By-the-by, giving a literal age to the Chaos Gods is not quite accurate, given that time is meaningless in the Warp. At least some of the newer fluff points out that the Gods of Chaos have, in a way, always existed yet at the very same time havn't been born yet. Damn metaphysical nonsense :p

Abandon 12,000 during the great Crusade

Do you mean Abbadon? He'd be around 250 during the Crusade, I reckon, so in the current timeline he'd be 10,250 surely?

Eldrad would have been alive pre-fall, having been the leader of his craftworld during the Great Crusade, which itself got kicked off once Slaanesh's Birth Screams cleared the Warp of the storms.

As to the Chaos Gods, it's somewhat...crazy to try and place the age of a being that's entirely made up of, and entirely living in, a dimension that lacks the same concept of time that ours does. So while we may have a reference point of when they gained awareness in relationship to our world, the warp has no chronological reference points, so Slaanesh could have been "Born" 5000 years old, or -4000.

(Its Abbadon not Abandon)

Anyway, heres my contribution. I thought, as the rules say that the characters not dead etc (though I disagree with the "frozen in time" one) shouldnt be listed I though I would also list the primarchs that are living and discount Guilliman and the ones that have died.

- Ctan: 4,500,000,000 Years (they are said to be as ancient as the stars and the oldest things ever)(though not given the Necrodermis form until about 65,000,000 years ago).
- Emperor of mankind: 48,000 Years (born 8000 bc)
- Khorne: 39,000 (he gain awareness during man's middle ages 1400 AD)
- Tzeentch: 39,000 (he gain awareness during man's middle ages 1400 AD)
- Nurgle: 39,000 (he gain awareness during man's middle ages 1400 AD)
- Asdrubael Vect: Over 13,000 (He was around before the fall of the Eldar).
- Slaanesh: 13,000 (around the fall of Eldar)
- Angron: 10,250 (created just before great crusade, GC lasted 200 odd years)
- Fulgrim: 10,250 """
- Perturabo: 10,250 """
- Mortarion: 10,250 """
- Magnus the Red: 10,250 """
- Lorgar: 10,250 """
- Abbadon: 10,250 (grew up roughly the same age as Horus)
- Typhus: 10,250 (see above)
- Kharn the Betrayer: 10,250 (see above)
- Lucius the Eternal: 10,250 (see above)
- Bile: 10,250 (see above)
- Bjorn the Fell Handed: 10,250
- Commander Dante: 1,200
- Chaplain Cassius: Almost 400
- Brother Captain Stern: Almost 400
- Marneus Calgar: Estimated Almost 400 (elected as Chapter Master in 698.M41 - I would allow at least 100 years before that. But he is meant to be younger than Chaplain Cassius.)

Abaddon, Typhus etc would be around about 11,200 years each (since the Horus Heresy took place in the second decade of the 31st millenium, and 'now' is the last decade of the 41st)
