Indeed, but I'm saying they've got to pick one or the other. Either the 3rd edition version, where the Nightbringer, borne of their own star, was the first, or the later version, where the Messenger/Deceiver came before the Necrontyr as a herald. Or at least update the text...

Contrast this with the Tau, which seem to get new lore in every edition: Third Sphere Expansion, Horizon Accelerator, Startide Nexus, etc.
