I couldn't tell whether all Black Library is considered a canon source, but if it is, then they've missed one.

They have forgotten to include the Emperor's Pointy Sticks! How could they?!

This is very different. Since when have people been putting all this stuff up on wiki? It shouldn't I guess, but wow. That's a lot of chapters.

Where the hell are Space Sharks? One of my friends oldest and official found chapters from version 2. Not sure where he got the info but I will ask and post a picture of his army with official gw photocopied (gasp) banner and chapter icons. Anyone got any more info?

A lot of the chapters have full fledged backgrounds and close ties to their founding chapters. Many are not mentioned, how can you guys not remember rainbow warriors seriously!? They looked so good way back when fighting eldar harlequins.

While putting everything on Wikipedia is an awesome idea, how long will it be before war breaks out between lovers of certain old (and, as GW keeps pointing out, 'outdated') fluff elements and those of new? Pages will continually be rewritten concerning the weaponry Horus carried ("Two lightning claws!" "No! Lightning claw and mace!!!").

On another note, how long until GW legal department demand the removal of official fluff from Wikipedia? :D

Legion of the Damned are missing and Rainbow Warriors, that's two I've found off the top of my head without looking through any publications. Extensive - yes, all encompassing - no.

Nice resource though.
